The lines:

‘Are we there yet?’

More lines:

KaavyaWriting: “See that Discovery World building in the background? The line starts half a mile away from that building, snakes in a triple bend, then wraps around the building to come out the other side and snake onward. And people are still arriving. So huge, and I’m so PROUD Obama has such strong support. Long line, continue on!”

The message:

The ‘Wow, this is like 2008 all over again’ face:

the aarp interview

Interview with AARP – extracts:

……. Q: The attacks set off the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Did either of you have an inkling that the mission that killed him was in the works?

MO: I knew something was happening, but when it gets down to that level of secrecy, there’s just a small number of people who know anything.

Q: So when did you find out?

MO: I was actually out to dinner with girlfriends, and I didn’t know until I walked in the door. It was later in the evening, and Barack had his suit on, because he was going to the press conference. And I said, “What’s going on?”

Q: And your reaction?

MO: I was, like, “Wow.” Then I wanted to know the details: “How did it happen? Then what? And then what happened?” I was probably like every media person.

Q: Was he too hurried to explain?

MO: No, he sat down. And then I sat down and talked to Malia to make sure she was aware, because the crowds [outside the White House] were starting to form…….
