Pres. Obama is dining with a bi-partisan congressional group at the White House tonight honoring Congress’ support for the U.S. military. It just happens to come at the end of day that saw one of the most successful military operations in recent memory. Fox News broke in to “The O’Reilly Factor” around 8:17pmET to cover the President’s remarks with Bret Baier anchoring. Lawrence O’Donnell took the remarks live as well during his show. CNN aired the president’s remarks about 10 minutes later. The president got a standing ovation when he said, “We have all had disagreements and differences in the past. I suspect we will have them again in the future. but, last night as Americans learned that the United States had carried out an operation that resulted in the capture and death of Osama Bin Laden [applause] we experienced the same sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11.”
