Obama's 3 AM Moment
American Thinker ^ | January 31, 2011 | Nancy Morgan

Posted on 01/31/2011 8:18:51 AM PST by Hotlanta Mike

One of the issues raised in the run-up to our last presidential election was the question "Which candidate is best qualified to handle a '3 AM moment'?" America now has a partial answer. It isn't President Obama.

Last Friday was Day 4 of the ongoing protests in Egypt, where tens of thousands Egyptians took to the streets to demand the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak. As the situation reached a flash point, with a mounting death toll and Egyptian tanks in the streets of Cairo, President Obama maintained his silence. Well, not quite. He did Twitter, by proxy.

The 3 AM call went to voice mail and Obozo responded with a text message the next afternoon.

“Hello, this is Barack. I’m not available to take your call right now, but leave a message at the beep and I will get back to you, as soon as the crisis is over.”

3 AM wake up call, a world wide crisis. Our King gets up and takes a shower, dresses for golf and informs Air Force One to stand by. Wakes up the chief and orders a huge breakfast. Flies to Hawaii and gets to the golf course at sunrise. Plays a few rounds of golf and then back to the plane for a nap.

Nothing stops our King Playboy.

I think you left out the intimate dinner party he threw for a few hundred of his closest friends...

This guy is a complete joke but no one is laughing. Nobody outside of the country has any respect for him or the people that elected him.

The 3 AM call went straight to voice mail. In the morning when it was time to get up, Obummer hit the snooze alarm 4 times. When he finally got up he went straight to the links. This guy is totally derelict. As far as he is concerned, the Muslim Brotherhood is just a group of concerned citizens in Egypt looking out for Democracy. Carter did a better job with the Shaw than this idiot is doing with Egypt. That's dangerous.

Obama is a coward, a johnny one note who has one answer for everything..Community Workers.And it has wored inside the USA and in Egypt ( according to the London Telegraph).

He is making dangerous enemies of our former allies who want to see him ......well you get the idea.And yes, I say former allies. We no longer have our traditional allies.

Obama means to ally America with the World Wide Caliphate Movement.This is the reason all ambassadors are being called to Washington for a conference.Those who do not go along with this NEW Obama policy will be asked to step down immediately.This is fascism, and we now begin to see shades of Adolf Hitler and Mussolini.Obama has his loyal liberal fascists waiting in the wings to replace those ambassadors who will need it. Obama already knows who they are for the most part.

Zeig Heil OBAMA!!/S

Don’t forget the members of the media who partied with him. The bash was held at Linda Douglass’s digs.

Anybody have a list of the media big names who were there?

Anybody know who paid for the affair? I bet it was us taxpayers somehow...

Don’t worry, March Madness is right around the corner and I’m sure our CnC will be right on top of his brackets and picks. He’ll probably get interviewed by ESPN about it again.

“He did Twitter, by proxy.”

Egypt burning isn’t a priority here. Making sure he’s still seen as hip by college students - THAT’S the priority.

He doesn’t care and nobody should be surprised. His interests lie in his own wealthy future and that of his family. That’s it. No matter what happens in the world, he’s protected. Bunkers, AF1, Secret Service etc. He hates America and hates taxpayers. “He won”.

This and other catastrophes go over his head and are of no concern or consequence to him. He lives for the moment and right now he’s president and can do what he wants and he wants to have fun. This is what happens when you have an empty suit puppet in office.

It would appear that everything is “above his pay grade.”

But Mohamed El Baradei claims that the bruthas aren’t extremists. Nothing to fear!

College students really don’t find him that cool anymore, either.

Obama will be one of those presidents that many college kids look back and laugh, “I can’t believe I voted for that guy”.

(My wife knows. She voted for Carter in ‘80, one of the few).

I thought he picked Hillary for Secretary of State because she is the smartest woman in the world. He could call her and ask her what to do.

Obama's thinking is probably mainly along two lines:

"If Mubarak falls, a radical anti-American group will gain control of Egypt. Is there a downside to that?"

"How can the current turmoil be blamed on George W. Bush?"
