Obama Got His 3 a.m. Call. He Decided To Sleep Through It.

Obama Got His 3 a.m. Call. He Decided To Sleep Through It. —Ace

Drudge highlights part of the story that the LA Times, of course, does not.

The president was updated throughout the evening, and notified late Tuesday that Stevens was unaccounted for. Obama learned Wednesday that Stevens was confirmed dead Wednesday morning, the official said. Man needs his rest. He's in Vegas right now. You can't do Vegas right if you're short of sleep.

By the way, the media is all dutifully reporting the Obama line: That while he is jetting his ass off to Las Vegas, "it's not a day of politics as usual" (via Mark Knoller) and that his Political Fundraiser With The Stars In Sin City will "fit the tone of the last 24 hours" (via @paconner).

So, you know, when he hits a Hard 8 at craps he will not cry out in glee, but will rather collect his earnings in a dignified, respectful way, a sigh and a shrug of the shoulders indicating that while he may be happy to win his bet, he's still thinking, sort of, about the four murders.

Obama’s motto - Never let a tragedy get in the way of a fund raiser.

The 2012 Presidential election was too close to call. Neither Mitt Romney nor Obama had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things.

It was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner. The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election.

After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest would take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Wisconsin.

There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties.

At the end of the first day, Mitt Romney returned to the starting line, and he had 10 fish.

Soon, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having a bad day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the next day.

At the end of the 2nd day Mitt came in with 20 fish, and Obama came in again with none.

That evening the Democrats got together secretly with Obama and said, “We think that Mitt Romney is a low-life, cheatin’ son-of-a-gun. Tomorrow don’t bother fishing. Just spy on him, and see just how he is cheating.’

The next night (after Mitt returns with 50 fish), the Democrats got together for the report of how the Republicans were cheating.

Obama said, “You are not going to believe this ... he’s cutting holes in the ice.”

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

1979

2012


As Clint noted, the Empty Chair attending the intel briefings.

Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focault's Pendulum and for finding these morphing graphic art realities!

Barry needs his sleep to he can be "on his game" when he goes on TV to play with his buddy, Dave again. Like Barry might say, "Letterman is smart".

my first thought was why was jug ears sleeping through this and why the long time giving a statement and then I asked where were the marines, were they told to stand down etc.

Jug ears should have been woken up and got out of bed no matter the time but no jug ears waits in bed till 7 every morning, he skips the briefings half the time and the media tries to change this to Romney and a gaff and then even worse was how the media spewed their questions like a pack of hungry wolves and the likes of Noonan finds a camera and spew her crap

Nice layout you have there, but it's missing another miscreant -
 
1992-93
 
 
Just a link to the appropriate picture since the mods would probably have a cow over the graphic nature of it.

“The MSM says it’s Romney’s fault.”

They know obama is going to lose in November, so they are practicing up their lines, since they are a bit out of practice since President Bush left office.
