Twitter Abuzz Preceding Obama’s Oval Office Speech
As the time nears for the president’s unprecedented speech tonight, planned for prime time on a Sunday and broadcast from the Oval Office, Twitter is buzzing with comments about it. Ostensibly about curbing terrorism, some have voiced fear that it will be another lecture on the gun control agenda and others fear it will have no real plan.
Check out the tweets below from the pundits and the peanut gallery alike:

Obama is giving a speech on the terror threat tonight. Twitter should be a real contentious place during and after that. Strange times.

On Obama's speech tonight, I am taking "lecturing America" over "actually laying out a plan" and the points. Always bet on lecturing.
