Audience Awaiting Cheney Listens to Obama
By Michael D. Shear
More than 250 people packed into the 12-floor conference center at the American Enterprise Institute for former vice president Dick Cheney's almost instantaneous rebuttal to President Obama's national security speech.
Obama's speech was piped into two big-screen televisions so the crowd could see his speech from the National Archives. As he began, just before 10:30 a.m., the crowd at AEI turned quiet.
Cheney was not seen during Obama's speech.
A technical glitch made listening to Obama difficult at first. For some reason, in addition to hearing the president's voice, the television also offered audio from C-SPAN, forcing the crowd to listen to congressional procedure as well.
The glitch was fixed a few moments.
