Briefing Bites

WASHINGTON (CNN) - The originally scheduled briefing was supposed to be held this afternoon at 2:30 and include updates on the massive snow storm. But due to all the happenings in Egypt this afternoon, Gibbs indefinitely postponed the briefing and then canceled it when the White House announced President Obama will be making a statement. So no there won't be a serving of Briefing Bites today!

    PRESIDENT OBAMA, spoke clearly and concise just now to MOBARAK and the protestors. He couldn't have done it anymore tactfully. David Gergen and John King ought to be ashamed of themselves. They jumped right out on Kings' show trying to stir up another firestorm against the PRESIDENT even speaking, while all week folks have been complaining about what is OBAMA going to say; what is he going to do? What's the WHITEHOUSES' stand on this? That's why I say, he's always damned if he does, damned if he doesn't!

    The guy that came on after the trap that John King and David Gergen tried to set against the briefing the president made tonight on the EYGYPTIAN UPRISE; I can't remember his name; but he told King that PRESIDENT OBAMA was right in speaking to us and EGYPT about the state of its' recent affairs! That man told King that he showed compassion to the demonstrators, as he pressed subtle diplomacy at MUBARAK, to step down right now! Had he not come out and said a word, the media would have been denouncing that!
