Good now he will know more than Obama—as Obama skips the meetings.

Well “someone” should get the briefings. I can see an RNC commercial coming.

He can take Obama's seat... Lord knows he isn't showing up for the meetings.

Besides, he might as well learn how big a mess he is about to walk into after the election.

Does anyone other than me think Obama has just plain given up?

Maybe we should start calling him President-Elect Mitt Romney in our titles just to make a liberal blow a chunk.

With limited intelligence information, Romney struggled this week to respond in real time to a violent clash in Libya that left four Americans dead,

AP reporters just can't help themselves.

I don’t know who wrote it either but I just suffered thru 48 minutes of the dumb blonde bimbo being “ amazed” by things that have been going on for years!
She can’t co-orbirate the reports that have been on the net all day?
Either she is truly deranged/ her staff is dumber than the old wooden plank that she appears to be/ or all of the above!

Take your pick.

Obama’s brain has been fried by smoking too many reefers. Memory is the 2nd thing that goes. That is why Obozo is lost without teleprompters.

Effectively a gag order.

Romney will need to consult Bachmann.

Who ever wrote that is a moron. The Lefty commentators on Fox have been screaming that Romney responded TOO fast and did not give Obama time to find out what was going on.

They cannot have it both ways.

I’d like for Mitt to keep an empty seat next to him for hussein during these briefings. {Diety} knows hussein will continue to skip them. He’s got better things to do like meet with Letterman, blow off Bibi Netanyahu, and meet with The Pimp with a Limp. Well, that and help the wife pick out curtains for the retirement home in Hawaii, ‘cause the curtain is coming down on his political life.

0bama is going to provide briefings because it will prevent Romney for commenting on a lot of things. If something is covered by the national security briefing, Romney will be limited in what he can say.

0bama thought he was being smart by holding out on Romney, then all the sudden, he goes “Oh, no, Romney can say any damn thing he wants about my screw ups because Romney can’t be accused of divulging secrets since he hasn’t been told any.”

This is not a step of generosity on the 0’s part.

“intelligence briefing” from this administration is an oxymoron.

Maybe Romney could pose as an advisor to the Obama Administration after receiving intelligence briefings...

He should have an office of President-elect like Obama did before he was immaculated.

Well yep, I actually think memory was the first thing that goes when being a chronic pothead.

Either way, as I observed how Obama was proud to have been a pothead, then watched over the years as he flip-flopped and arrested the potheads, I realized, yeah, only a pothead would do something as senseless as that.

If Romney quits the campaign in a day or so we will know we're in deep doo doo

“AP reporters just can't help themselves.”

There should be knee pads made with the Obama logo; and sent to some of these “journalists”.

Or maybe a knee pad award could be created and given weekly to the the most deserving “journalist”.

"0bama is going to provide briefings because it will prevent Romney for commenting on a lot of things"

That's what I figure.

I just read on another thread that the State Dept. has refused to brief the Intelligence Committee on these events.

If true, Michele will be as much in the dark as we are.

It’s a mind boggler to see “intelligence” and “Obama” in the same sentence.

From the Obama Administration? I wouldn’t trust those briefings at all. I think he already gets intelligence from another source.

I still can’t get over the most offensive statement of the years from Todd Akin. Marginalizing rape....there is nothing more offensive than that. What other gaffes can we expect from this dude if elected? But I won’t worry about his future gaffes because he will become irrelevant on evening of November 6th.
