Dereliction of Duty: Obama AWOL While Crises Pile Up
Fox Nationm ^ | March 15, 2011

Obama Urged to Seize Reins as Crises Pile Up

A conflict approaching civil war in Libya. An end-times tsunami in Japan. A Congress that can't reach a budget.

And ... gender inequality?

The topic of President Obama's weekend radio address has raised some eyebrows, as Obama has met mounting crises with the same restraint and cool that characterized his slow-and-steady campaign for president. To some critics, the tone set by the White House in light of recent upheaval may hurt the president's public image.

Amid chaos around the world and on Capitol Hill, Obama's Saturday radio address was devoted to Women's History Month and a call to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, a proposal meant to address the income gap between men and women. Then, the president went golfing at Andrews Air Force Base. Read more at foxnews.com.

Obama Lies Low in Deficit Debate

When President Barack Obama opened the first meeting of his fiscal commission last April, he promised to be “standing with them” as they produced recommendations for curbing the nation’s escalating debt.

Republicans and Democrats say they are still waiting.

The deficit reduction strategy of the White House is clear: have the republicans make all the proposals and then demagogue them to death.

Nero fiddled while Rome burned, but Nero knew a little something about what he was trying to do.

I’m under the impression that the term AWOL means the person in question can’t be located. Obama, on the other hand, is always on the links. Problem solved.

Why did the American people vote for this inexperienced—fellow. The MSM managed to get the people mad at Bush and McCain (touted as Bush II) and so they went with the new guy. Good, now they see what a bad president looks like.

And this is a surprise how, given his only qualification for the job was a “community organizer”? Give me a retired military General, even a...dare I say...demo-rat, any day. t the very least, they have “been there and done that!”

With everything he could be doing he brought up gun control this weekend. Really??? Gun control.

I am starting to believe he wants to be a one term president. Pays the same. Why deal with four more years of people calling at 3 A.M.?

We have an imposter in the white house and Fauxnews won’t look into any of the imposter’s corruption. He does not have a birth Certificate and is not a Natural Born Citizen.

The Obama regime has a remarkably tin ear when it comes to change. Rather robot like ~ as in "knee-jerk, robot-like, mind-numbed Leftwingtards."

Andrews?

Anyone checking on the ground or is it supposition that when he flies off that way he's going that way.

You can see him flying over Springfield VA quite often on his way to the protected executive level course at Fort Belvoir!

This is the same one Bill Clinton used and the Secret Service thought best.

Did hussein ever golf before winning the presidency?
I ask because he strike me as a guy who would not know the first thing about the sport.

He did win the lottery. We’ll never be rid of him, and he’ll always be paid for by the public. We’ll have to pay for his office, for his security detail, for his library, and if Americans are truly stupid, for a national monument.

Nero fiddled while Rome burned,because Rome didn’t have a Golf Course.

Obama handles problems by grabbing a 5 iron and hitting the links.

He doesn’t answer the phone anyway, so why call.
This is what you get with an underqualified person in a position of authority. Someone who puts his head in a hole till the storm passes then says, hey, i’m still standing! not realizing that their pants are gone and they still look stupid.

At least Nero had some musical talent, what does Barry got?

Yes, but the American people will still support him in 2012 because the Republican primary electorate is incapable of nominating anyone not afraid of his own shadow.
