Toddler causes security breach at White House, delays Obama address on Iraq

(CNN) – President Barack Obama was about to address the nation on Iraq Thursday night when the briefing was delayed because of a security breach on the North Lawn of the White House.

But this wasn't your normal breach, this was one of a pint-sized variety.

    "I think the tipping point for direct U.S. military action will most likely come at Irbil in Iraq."

    Cute story, but the war may have just begun. We're dropping bombs on ISOL artillery pieces near Irbil.

    Junk- Don't worry the feckless pair, McCain and Lindsay are out the spreading hate for you today. If brain dead republicans weren't so disgusting, they would be funny.

  10. it must be said

    He is likely an illegal that just came over the border. He was there to ask Obama for his permisso.

    This wouldn't have happened if Rick Perry was in the White House !

    All white house staff would be packing iron ,
    No little Jr progressive illegal would think try to penetrate the" RICK PERRY IRON DOME ".

    "Geez... what put your panties in a bunch?"

    6 years of GOP/Teatrolls with their racist hissy fits and legislation, obstruction of all progress and abject refusal to govern.

    I'd ask what twisted yours in a know, but all we have to do is look at the November 4, 2008 scoreboard next to a picture of Obama from when he still sported a bit more afro and it's all made clear.

    What WUP meant is that it provides us with a welcome respite from the continuous pouring of hate and contention towards all things Obama/HRC/etc. that this site has become infamous for.
    The psyche, at least ours, craves accord, peace and commonality in order to deal with the daily assault of irrational hate that it has to contend with on a daily basis when passing through this thread.

    "I'm enjoying my Friday, hope you are too my sister friend."

    Oh, I am ... absolutely. The weather has been gorgeous here, and considering what we endured this past winter, not only is it so very welcome, it is welcome to stay this way for months to come.

    If I don't catch up with you again (the breaks during comments being what it is ... yeah, I know ... our mod's hands are full dealing with the anti-government thread filling up with trolling bait) have a great weekend and stay safe.
