The answer seems to be 'no.'

"I don't have an up -- an updated list of calls," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told the press when asked if President Obama has spoken to any world leaders about the deteriorating situation in Egypt.

Well, he IS just the Whitehouse press secretary. Why should HE be able to provide updates to the press about what's going on at the Whitehouse?

Translation: Obama is not high on the world leaders' priority list of whom to call for advice.

Democrats, you best get in gear and get rid of these deadbeats. Whether it is the Middle East, Obamacare, the Economy, The Unemployed, Public Unions out of control, Iraq, Afghanistan, the PRC, India, etc., you got dummies from top to bottom. Now, you can hang with these bufffoons, but then, you all will go down to defeat in the election of 2012!!! Have fun, Dummies!!!

I think most of our allies have been unable to meet or talk with Obama at all. And I read somewhere yesterday that he hasn’t even spoken with all of his cabinet secretaries.

When the PM of Great Britain, formerly our closest ally, came over for a first visit, Obama couldn’t be bothered to ask him for dinner.

And when he and Michelle went to Paris, they turned down Sarkozy’s invitation to dinner, because they preferred to eat out.

Never mind, he gave a very fancy dinner for the Communist Chinese dictator. Probably he’d take a call from Hu Jintao.

Is Zero on another ice cream break or vacation?

Zero is over his head and does not know what to do. Maybe wants the radicals to take over Egypt and that is why he is doing nothing.

Wonder if he’s spoken with the Egyptian military. In the next few days or weeks, they could be the ones choosing the next leader of Egypt.

I counted. In every answer he uses the word “uh” at about a three to one ratio with other words. He’s worse than W.

I am sure the door to the residence has a sign on it which reads: Closed for the weekend. It is routinely put out around noon on Friday.

Kind of reminds one of what happened in France when the Normandy invasion began and Hitler left instructions to not be bothered.

Gibbs was also asked specifically if obama has spoken to “western” leaders. Gibbs dodged the question.

I certainly agree with your sentiments, but I fear 2012 will be too late. If the hard core Moslem's take over Egypt et al, the world will be in deep shit and things could go nuclear real fast. Israel is not going to sit around as the moslem nations that surround her build up the troops and hardware to take her out. Obumer and his incompetent administration will pee their pants when the SHTF.

Eisenhower was President for our last "Sputnik moment." Come to think of it, he was President for the last big Suez crises too.

Maybe the Time magazine photoshop people can start working on next week's cover showing Ike with his arm around the 'bamster.

Perfect. Then again, Hillary looks pretty much stumped, too. I’ll look for the John Bolton thoughts on the recent days’ “events”. Haven’t had a lot of time to catch up on my reading...

I am concerned myself. This Egypt revolution was not even noticed by the “Obama” administration. Our intelligence under Obama has been asllep at the wheel or, ordered by Obama to keep silent. You know in your hear of hearts, Obama hates freedom, loves government control and power and....sides with Muslim radicals across the world. Throwing Murbarack under the bus is typical of his style, but what follows Murbarack could ditto what occurred in Iran. I could go on, but what I see is not good for America and in “my” heart I know Obama loves it!!! Shades of “America Hater” Rev. Jeremiah Wright breathe heavily in the mantra and soul of Barack Hussein Obama.
