Obamas ‘3 a.m. Phone Call Went Right to the Answering Machine’ ~Governor Sarah Palin
It doesn’t surprise me that anything surprises these idiots. It may be the ‘out’ thing to say but Obama and his administration is an Fail of Epic Proportions.
Just thinking about Sunday has put DNC Dave under heavy sedation and suicide watch.
Homer Simpson would have a better grasp of what is going on.
“That 3 a.m. phone call from Egypt to Obama went right to the answering machine.” - Sarah Palin
Heh heh heh ...
Just about every report involving the White House these days contains the word ‘unexpected’.
So what would be different about this report? It’s a given that the White House is in the dark.
Get back to us when it isn’t.

Everything is unexpected to Zero.
That is why we need someone who knows what he’s doing in the White House.
I’ll bet Soros is giving Obama an earfull right now... “you idiot... I bet half my portfolio on the fall of Egypt.. can’t you do anything right?”
What the h3ll did we expect? Sudden wisdom from Zero?
Watching Glenn Beck now. He has been covering all this quiet extensively over the past 2 weeks.
He is right.
Sunrise surprises this administration.
And I’ve got a grandaughter that wears an Obama tee shirt.
Yeah, and after listening to the message for weeks, Obambi still doesn’t know what to say when he does answer.
These guys in office havent a clue as to what is going on. Embarrassing to say the least, frightening mostly.
Just one more in a string of foreign policy defeats for “The Won”.
He’s so bad.
Too bad for you Obama you are not calling the shots
