Obama to Offer New Insights into Ebola in Five Minutes

Fox's live feed is here.

He's scheduled to speak 2:55.

So, we might be waiting a while.

Read Allah's speculation as to what he might say (I have twenty dollars riding on the proposition he ends the statement by talking about how awesome the economy is).

And, while you're waiting, and waiting, and waiting, enjoy Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell pre-spinning the coming Republican victory.

Dickerson declared that the midterm elections are not "about a set of ideas." Perhaps looking for reassurance about next Tuesday, Rose insisted, "...If the Republicans win the Senate and control the Congress, they have no mandate." Co-host Norah O'Donnell pre-spun the bad news: "If Republicans take control, they're going to win in six Senate seats that Mitt Romney won by double digits in the last presidential election. Where's the mandate for compromise in that?"

O'Donnell then tried to downplay the importance of the elections, noting, "Every midterm election, that since World War II, the President's opposing party has lost an average of six seats. It's really about a fickle public."
