Posted on 05/01/2011 7:11:45 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Geraldo just announced Obama will make some sort of statement in 30 minutes. Geraldo says this is unusually late and figures it has something to do with Libya.

It was, by far, his most presidential speech.

But they all work in the White House and the Press Corpse. :)

I wouldn't bet one cent on the spontaneity of that demonstration outside the White House, either. Hope there are some infiltrators there to learn what is really going on.

It has to take longer than a day, even with all the power and might of the US military and/or intel agencies.

NCIS gets DNA results back in 6 hours.

I have a strange feeling about the thousands of college kids who are chanting USA outside the White House.

Anybody know where they came from and who has put them up to this? It just doesn’t feel genuine.

Not sure about that. Waving Bush-Cheney signs, sing the national anthem - correctly - sounds more like the DC Chapter than and other real Americans than Obama’s rent a mobs.

Didn't see the Bush-Cheney signs. Hope that's true...

"The idiots cheering outside of the White House should be cheering outside the Pentagon."

The "idiots" would have been children when 9/11 happened. This is weird - they're all the same age group - looks like no one over 30 is there. I'm shocked they seem to care so much.

. Gasoline is not going down and he will find that alone will shatter American livelihoods and his re-election.

I think you're right. The removal of OBL from the planet will be a bragging point for Obama, but will ancient history a year from now when gas is $5/gallon and groceries have doubled in price.

Yup. This pretty much guarantees the scumbags re-election.Are you kidding? Bush I had a 90% approval rating after the Gulf War in April of '91. He got the boot 19 months later.

It's 18 months until Obama gets the boot, especially with a double dip coming as gas goes past $5.00.

The MSM is just not as powerful as they used to be. They will not be able to keep this before the public mind in any kind of sustained way. It will fade, especially as people are much more sensitive to things that affect them personally, like not being able to get to work due to gas prices. Not to mention the Tea Party and the conservative resurgence has its own way of keeping conservative issues on the front burner. 2012 will not be about who got rid of OBL. It will be about getting rid of BHO. We will not forget.

Judging from my viewing of the “crowd” at the White House, most of them were about eight or nine years old in 2001. So, fake crowd, fake news announcement, fake emergency news conference, fake everything.

If our Navy Seals shot him, they could have flown the DNA to DC and asked Abby Sciuto to put a rush on it

Here is what I think happened.

The story was going to be we got him a week ago and just got back the DNA results.

But then something happened behind the scenes..and they decided that story is going to be a problem - for whatever reason- diplomatic issues, whatever..

so an hour goes by while they decided what to do..
and now the story is we got him today.

Watching al Jazeera. They are covering the demonstrations in front of the WH. I am sure the WH does not want these demonstrations at the WH. It will inflame the Muslim world, if there is such a thing. I would not want to be at one of our embassies today. We will be at high security alert for some time to come.
