Meaning he’ll actually saunter out around 12:20 or so, mention the plane, and then start attacking Republicans for tying his hands on the Ukraine situation so “he could have prevented this”. . .

I guess they need to try and clean up the optics from yesterday...lets see how tough guy speech Obama goes over today.

Will likely also set a speed record from the podium back into the White House afterwards...no questions!

Has he decided whether it’s a tragedy yet?

His advisers had to scramble after that blunder.

Yesterday he said it could be a tragedy. He just needs a couple of seconds of time to clarify it actually was one.

I wonder if he will mention the death of 23 Americans or is that still under investigation? No doubt Obama is reluctant to mention those deaths because it turns the incident into far more than just being a “tragedy.” Will he invoke Reagan or Merkel?

“Our hearts go out to those who perished in this terrible tragedy. I’m working with the NSA, the FBI, the CIA, the WHO, and the EIEIO to determine if and whatnot. Words cannot express the depth of stuff and feelings the good people of Mayonnaisia over the loss of their second plane in like a couple of months. We will work to find this one too and those who did this will my Administration in pursuit though there are naysayers we’ll work together to forge ahead and all the people of the world. Goodnight.”

Question is, will he now blame Republicans in Congress for the incident or for his pathetic response? Maybe this was the result of actions taken by the Bush administration.

The WH must be getting a lot of flack.

Obama does a ‘do over’ at 11:00 a.m. ET [or thereabouts] this morning — new remarks regarding the Malaysian airliner.

==

Maybe, he has been practicing in front of a mirror on how to bite his lower lip and look concerned.

==

FoxNews now says statement will be at 11:30 ET.

Obama is currently getting a briefing.

He has now finally seen Ronald Reagan’s speech when the JAL airliner was shot down by the Soviets. Can he put aside his bitter slash and burn political agenda long enough to speak for ALL Americans on this?

He was watching ESPN and heard something about Bush getting us into the Crimean War, and he’s as angry as the rest of us. He may even make another statement after he returns from two weeks on Martha’s Vineyard.

OBAMA: Yesterday I said “It looks like this may be a terrible tragedy.”

And I was right. It WAS a terrible tragedy.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m late for a tee time.

That's because the game is over. Putin has effectively cut off the air route from the West to Oz and SE\Asia. Kerry just needs to rearrange the seats at the Hague for the handover of the Eastern Ukraine. Game Set Match to Putin.

Maybe they brought in a new joke writer.

Apparently, the jokes in his speech yesterday didn’t go over too well — with his folks in the media. Some media even referred to it a ‘jokey’ speech.
