Obama to speak in 30 minutes - or in an hour or two (Live Thread)

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.

Rush and Co. will have a big job to put all of this in proper perspective...

A tough job all right.

You should hear the (hypocritical) anti-war, Bush is a treasonous war criminal, DUers basking in the success of obama delivering and taking out bin laden.

They're just eating it up, too stupid to realize that there's very little he can do to take credit for it, even though to hear him talk, you'd think he made the killing shot himself.

Perhaps this is why Obama chose the late hour for his remarks. If this was in the middle of the day, the streets would overflow. Maybe the WH didn’t want the muslims to see us celebrate as they did on 911 (although equating the 2 celebrations woud be disgusting)

I want them to see us celebrate.

JENNIFER GRIFFIN just said the fire fight took place today. WTF is going on with this?

Maybe if you live on Planet Kos you believe that. The MSM is so predictable that they really have about as much credibility as Bagdad Bob anymore. You must be very young. I was a boy during the Cronkite Era. The monopoly, the sense of near deity they had about themselves they had back then, absolutely is not the limping caricature of power they have to day. Your assertions are without any stated basis in fact. Yes, the election of Obama was aided by the MSM, but the clones were prepared in advance by the liberal colleges and universities. The MSM was merely the catalyst operating on a public not yet awakened to the threat.

However, we are awake now, and November 2010 should have been the lab experiment sufficient to remove all doubt that the MSM has lost the monolithic authority it once had. They tried to limit the damage that was coming but couldn’t do it. They polled us and told us and pushed us and pulled us and we did what we wanted anyway.

You see, it is just as dangerous to overestimate your enemy as to underestimate them. Grant them too little power and you won’t try hard enough. Grant them too much power and you will defeat your own cause by giving up in despair. What do you think Tokyo Rose’s main mission was? To weaken the resolve to win, by causing people to believe the enemy was so in control that resistance was futile. So not only is it factually unsupportable to give the MSM too much credit, it’s bad strategically. There’s a block they influence, and then there’s everybody else. That’s how we won in 2010, and that’s how by God’s grace we will continue to win in 2012.

It wasn’t a Super Bowl, it was an important late season game between the Jets (with Joe Willie Namath) and I forget who. I think the Jets were down before the switch, but came back to win the game while Heidi was on. The win put them in the playoffs I think.

I would have thought that FUBO would be declaring a day of mourning, for the death of a fellow muzzie brethren. I just gagged as I heard f---kin narcissist buruck hussein osama take full credit (I, me, I, me, etc) for this operation. Personally I think that FUBO is pulling our leg, just to get our attention off the soaring price of gasoline, thanks to 0dumbo & the demoRATs.

In closing........FUBO, you cowardly commie pig-in-chief!

I know it has been said, but if we went in with Copters the element of surprise is over. They are saying it was a fire fight, OBL taking one to the head sounds more like suicide to me when he knew there was no escape. Still dead however it happened.

....seems some are pretty upset that Pakistan allowed and co-operated with this on their soil...

Gloria Borger on CNN said the raid was a closely held secret and only a few Americans knew about it beforehand.

I thought I was getting objective coverage from Al Jazeera during the Egyptian protests, and watched it a great deal. A good bit of anti-Americanism came in from the guest ‘experts’ and commentators, including several Middle East studies professors from American universities.

And I never decided if Al Jazeera had a desired outcome in mind for Egypt. All those Muslim nations risk falling under much greater Islamist influence if their monarchies or dictators are replaced Qatar included.

The risks will go up for Americans in many nations, with or without these demonstrations. And it’ll be interesting to learn whether demonstrations took place in any other US locations. Maybe NYC? But if it is only DC at the White House, that’ll look suspicious.

You can’t compare an off year Mid-term to a Presidential Election. The composition of the electorates simply are not the same.

People on our side like to pretend that the media doesn’t hold sway over the brain dead masses in this country, because it makes them feel better. In reality, the public schools, colleges and universities have done their jobs and made it far easier for the media to control the population that it was back in the day.

Yes, the Media didn’t like Reagan and Nixon, but Reagan was a one of a kind and was about to do an end run around them, and the media was responsible for bringing down Nixon.

The media propped up Obama, and they will continue to do so. Watch. I wish it were not so, and I sincerely hope I am wrong, but the state of things simply does not give me any confidence that this is so.

The amount of the reward, according to Fox News, was 25 million dollars, [or was it 250?]. Reportedly the largest amount ever offered.

Whatever the amount, it does not bother me, as Osama’s death will bring closure to many military, and civilian, families who lost loved ones to this fanatic. And, it will send a needed message to our enemies that they cannot get away with with attacking the US, even if we have an antiwar administration.

God bless our Special Forces and all who serve. And, “Thank you!”

For many of the young people the death of Usama represents a win and an end to war. They are two naive to understand that it, like the Alamo, may be a catalyst for the terrorist to rev up the attacks and prolong the war.
