Posted on 11/23/2010 4:42:56 PM PST by milwguy
President Obama "dropped by" a meeting with top officials discussing North Korea's attack on a South Korean island on Tuesday, an administration official e-mailed reporters.
Of course, I hear he is going to pay off Kim Jong Il for peace just like he did Abdullah Mansour, the number 2 Taliban leader who was negotiating on behalf of Mullah Omar. Oh never mind, that guy was an imposter and we just got taken for millions of $.
Huh? Did he stumble in on the meeting? You think no one called? OMG
They were serving Thai food & Stevie Wonder was performing.
He should have led the dam meeting.
Guess he dropped by to say “present”
Gawd what a loser.
Remember when they used to say George Bush didn’t like to work?
A good characterization of his Presidency.
His trip a few weeks ago was a total failure...
Do any of you think he is going to give a crap about what is happening over there? LOL..
His ego isn’t going to let him get involved. He is worse than a woman scorned.
Give BO a break. He was busy filming Barbara Walter’s prime time special. : o /
Well isn’t that special?
Yeah, sort of like how he just “dropped by” the White House to play president for four years.
Geeez...what a pathetic loser he is.
Nice to know he's dedicated to the job.
Pathetic. But then we know that Bam is just so smart he’s bored by the mundane lives of us common folk.
Hey, that nothin!
We have an imposter for President and got taken for Trillions.
What do you expect from the pissant, he is a world traveler he coame to the USA from Asia to freshen his suitcase before going to Europe. Now he is back and he needs to freshen his wardrobe again before his next Exodus to who knows. Probably on his way to go purchase some more crap from some world dictator that has another high flatulin idea.
“Hey Guys - whatcha doin’??”
“Go away, Beav!!”
He should have sent George Clooney.

Yah...he just “dropped by”. There is nobody in charge.
Top White House officials planned to meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday to discuss North Koreas attack on a South Korean island, an administration official e-mailed to reporters.
Heres who is expected to attend, according to the official:
NSA Tom Donilon
Vice Presidents NSA, Antony Blinken
Secretary of State Clinton
Deputy Secretary of State Steinberg
Secretary of Defense Gates
Deputy Secretary of Defense Michele Flournoy
Ambassador Susan Rice (SVTS)
DNI James Clapper
Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell
Adm. Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Gen. Cartwright, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Adm. Willard, Commander, U.S. Pacific Command (SVTS)
Gen. Sharp, Commander U.S. Forces Korea (SVTS)
Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security John Brennan
Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough
Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Rhodes
Senior Director for Asian Affairs Jeff Bader
Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Counsel to the President Mary DeRosa
Director for Asian Affairs Daniel Russel
Senior White House Coordinator for WMD Counterterrorism and Arms Control Gary Samore
Looks like Donilon is calling the shots.
God help South Korea.
That sounds like a lot of work, and details he need not be wasting his time with.
I think he was just wandering the halls and smelled pizza. “Hi, Guys, let me grab a slice....see ya.”
“Dropped by” is just the positive twist to “made an appearance”...at least the Zero can not be accused of micro managing his administration.
NK is about to start nuclear war as a cover while China to blow up our west coast cities, see.
And, and, Obama doesn't want the world to think that he is too eager to deal with this "minor skirmish". So, by just “dropping by” a meeting of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wink, wink, he is sending the message that, hey, no sweat. He is WAY in charge of things. So in charge, that he doesn't even have to bother to show up to a gathering of decision makers trying to figure out how to prevent Apocalypse. Being President is easy, when you are as smart as our our Commander In Chief!
Maybe they thought they’d get more done if he wasn’t there. He doesn’t have anyhting to offer and they know it.
I hope he gave a shout out to Hugo.
Nobody tweeted 0bama and Biden about the meeting time and place
“So, guys, find out
A: whose side are we on?
B: How is this somebody else’s fault?
Get those answers to Biden tonight at the latest.
And... er... remember there is no “I” in “team”!”
“His trip a few weeks ago was a total failure...”
Funny. He goes to Asia and looks like a total dweeb. A weakling with Zero credibility, inept diplomatic skill and tanking support at home.
Then, bam. NK launches an attack.
Could there somehow be a correlation?
Yeah, there have been a number of stories that are completely consistent with this. He “drops by”, doesn’t really do anything, and then leaves.
The amazing thing is that this is completely consistent with what is widely rumored in the legal community about his tenure as the ostensible President of the Harvard Law Review 20 years ago. He was never around, would show up to put in his face time when there was a deadline looming, but there was some responsible managing editor who actually did all the work and got the publication out. Dude has NEVER worked an honest day’s labor in his life. Some things never change.
Oh, they must have needed donuts and ice cream.
Why else would they call him?
Hey, lay off Obamolester. Unca Joe said just the other day he's aloof because...
Reuters Pictures 24 minutes ago U.S. President Barack Obama (R) is briefed on the situation on the Korean peninsula in the White House Situation Room in Washington November 23, 2010. The United States urged restraint on Tuesday following a North Korean artillery attack on South Korea and vowed to forge a "measured and unified" response with major powers, including China. North Korea fired several dozen artillery shells at a South Korean island in one of the heaviest bombardments of the South since the Korean War ended in 1953, sharply increasing tensions on the divided peninsula.
Those galas helps the anointed one to recapture the fun and exhilaration of the campaign. Come to think of it, the campaign never ended for 0bummer.
He can’t stay at the meeting very long. The Bulls are playing the Lakers at 7:30pm.
Dropped By to ask “Who the hell woke me up at 3:55am?”
You've got that right. He doesn't roll out of bed until 11am. On weekends & holidays, he sleeps late.
Off to the golf course!
Give the man a break. I’m sure he had some important Portuguese poop to scoop.
Running for president was much more fun than being president. Were it not for rubbing elbows with celebs at White House galas and incessant paid vacations he might resign.
Wow guess he finished his golf game early.
“Dudes. I was thinking that this North Korean attack may turn into one of those wag-the-dog thing and increase my poll numbers? What do you think?”
They tried to call Hilary, She was getting ankles Massage
LOL!! Exactly - he’s just so darn brilliant that ANY meeting would bore him. After all look at all the evidence of his brilliance: his SAT scores, his college grades, his LSAT scores, his law school grades, his written output as a lawyer and lecturer at a law school. Oh, that’s right - we’ve never seen any of that. Well - look at all his brilliant work in the Senate! Uh . . . look at what an amazing President he’s been! Uh . . . look at how much he’s cut his golf handicap while handling the most important job in the world!!
(Suppressed Homer-Simpson-shudder...) Dude...I'm ratting you out to the ICC...you're torturing me with mental images no amount of scrubbing can remove...
thanks for the pic! Look on the table in front of Barry, it is a MINI teleprompter! Barry can’t even form a thought in a private setting like this. His puppet master must be in the next room typing what Obi is supposed to say to his aides. In the pic, it even looks like he is looking down at the screen on the table
It was Reggie, and Reggie wasn't smoking tobacco products...
Where are the Teleprompter stands? Did they use Photoshop to airbrush them out?
