Was Obama trying to run out the clock?
President Obama is running late today. He was expected to speak at 10:00am.
It's not uncharacteristic of this administration to run late. But seeing that 28 minutes elapsed before Obama took the stage, you could make a case that the Obama team is trying to make it difficult on networks to carry former Vice President Cheney's speech.
It's politics. It's a giant chess game.
And people in the Twitterverse were talking about it.
arently: Obama delaying Ntl Security speech. Cheney has to wait until Obama finishes. Sensing Rahm laughing hysterically right now.
Nakialjackson: Is Obama running late because he knows that the networks will not cut from him to go to Cheney?
attackerman: so will cheney delay his speech too?
