It’s a great live thread. Just 3 hours early.

Plenty of time to go to the store and buy popcorn.

3 hours early is almost late judging by past live threads. Give us the drinking word, Severa.

My fellow Americans Natural born Citizens, Three days ago the last combat troops left Iraq. It has taken two long years to undo the damage that was done by the previous white-dominated-say-no-to-all-progress administration. But success is now assured in Iraq (pronounced eerok) If the forces of violence who are motivated by purely secular concerns like poverty and imperialism should ever rise up again and threaten the democracy of eerok, we will monitor that situation. Furthermore.. we will include them in any and all peace talks to address their democratic concerns. In closing, we are on the road to recovery and the economy is robust. Have a blessed Iftar dinner and good night.

If he uses the nuclear-tipped word “fault” one must chug the entire bottle.

I will watch. Just to hear him say, Thank you to "W" for having the faith that our brave military could do it.

Wait!

Well maybe I will just watch to join in the drinking games!

Or I just might see Gibbs get his a$$ kicked by Gretchen in back ground!

This really sounds like his mission accomplished but we’ll stay and be ready to fight. You would think that we would have resolved to stay as long as necessary with rotation of our troops.

Now we’re in Afghanistan and don’t have a clear reason of why we’re there now.

I used to avoid listening to his speeches. Now, I look forward to the next one.

Here is something to help make Obama's speeches almost tolerable.

Just print out this page, distribute it to friends, and listen...

(be sure to read directions at the bottom)

Rules for Bullshit Bingo:

1. Before Barrack Obama's next televised speech, print your "Bullshit Bingo"

2. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.

3. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout "BULLSHIT!"

Testimonials from past satisfied "Bullshit Bingo" players:

"I had been listening to the speech for only five minutes when I won." - Jack W., Boston

"My attention span during speeches has improved dramatically." - David D., Florida

"What a gas! Speeches will never be the same for me after my first win." - Bill R., New York City

"The atmosphere was tense in the last speech as 14 of us waited for the fifth box." - Ben G., Denver
