I always thought he got out of bed a 9am. He never attended any briefings. Bush would get his at 7am every morning. This Affirmative Action boy wonder is a 9-3 pm working guy.

Here we were at the worst day in history (besides Pearl Harbor), and he had no intel briefings. I would think with 9-11 coming up that POS in the WH would have been more vigilant.

He can’t meet with BiBi, but he is going to meet with Morsi. He has had the Brotherhood to the WH and welcomed them with open arms.

There is a traitor in the WH. He needed an incident to make him palatable for re-election. Instead of mourning our huge loss and exacting revenge for them murdering our Ambassador, he goes to Vegas to party.

HE MUST BE IMPEACHED! I hope the cries for impeachment get so loud they cannot be ignored!

We don’t really know what he’s doing. All the important stuff he does is off the record.

.....he has a long history of avoiding things that bore him. It is very easy to find article after article about his disinterest in taking on the responsibility of being President. When looking back a year or two, the idea of having two presidents was floated around after the little boy king was found "disinterested". Then a story surfaced about his health and how drawn he seemed (tired), at the same time he was in vacation mode, once again at the same time, another article appear noting his lack of "interest" in dealing with being a responsible President. His slacking abilities are well known in DC as well as a senator, oh yeah, the call it in senator,and when present, voting present on things that didn't interest him.

The White House responded by claiming that President Obama reads daily intelligence reports, even if he does not attend the briefings personally.

This makes me ask if the President reads them, how was it they were caught so off guard ?

When you already know everything about how the world works you don’t need to be briefed.

I read some where that the WH said that he “reads” the briefings even though he does not go to the meetings.

1st he is paid as the President of the United States to go to these meetings.
2nd this is not like a school where you don’t go to class and just review the book in hopes that you can just take the test to pass

We have a totally non engaged President in my opinion who felt it was OK to go to Vegas after our Ambassador was murdered/suffocated/helped/left without defense/carried to the hospital by people trying to help/or what ever the spine is of the day.

Will we ever know the TRUTH?

LETTERMAN.

*********

I know. Letterman is more important. I think something else is in play here. An ambassador was murdered and he just keeps on campaigning.

To be frank and honest i would me inclined to believe that the briefings are behind locked doors and they told Obama to butt out because he is about as useful as a teat on a boar hog.

And I have heard reports that some have literally shouted back at Obama that he was an imbecile and could not understand an intelligence briefing if it was explained by a 6th grader.

He receives the written briefings. There is no way for anyone to know what he does read or does not read. Bush met every morning. He can’t even meet weekly?

Just when you think he can’t get any lower, 0bama always manages to find a way!

That fund raiser he spoke at last night was just disgusting! It had all of the sick feel of the ‘Wellstone Memorial’ all over it.

Otherwise the PDB won't fit on the teleprompter.

Oh, that hard working President of ours! He likes to work 24/7: 24 hours a week, seven months a year.

Seriously, this is a winning issue for Romney. If he can make it stick that Obama regularly skips intel meetings, AND hadn’t been to one in the week leading up to the embassy attacks, Obama will be held fully responsible for the violence and deaths (as he should be). And with Obama’s notoriously thin skin, it’ll be a pleasure to watch and listen to him respond.

You just hit on something. Maybe the puppet masters decided there are some things they don’t want him to know.
