Because cutting Romney out ofthe briefings keeps him from knowing what's really going on, and therefore Obama could then try to make him look "clueless" on foreign policy issues.

VERY good point, but we can only hope.

We know he’s being told the truth because John Bolton has too many friends inside who will tell him when Romney is being played. I wouldn’t be surprised if Romney didn’t know the truth about Libya prior to his statement.

White House is probably worried that Romney will end up attending more briefings than Barry.

GWB ordered his staff to begin transition preparations ONE YEAR before he left the White House. He knew all to well the perils and the danger of a poor transition (lack of preparation, sept 11 ). During the 2000 election debacle, Clinton/Gore refused to provide adequate briefing, and many parts of Bush’s Cabinet, especially Defense, were way behind as a result.

I have no doubt these anti American Marxist Narcissists will do much more damage than just taking the W’s off of the computer keyboards.

Pray for our country, and find a way to help.

It was reported that K. T. McFarland said on Fox that the reason Obama refused to meet with any foreign leaders when he was in New York was to prevent Romney from getting an opportunity to meet with them (and be photographed with them looking Presidential)...apparently the foreign leaders would be violating protocol if they met only with the challenger. Not sure if that is the right explanation but sounds very much like what Obama would do.

Even Geraldo was criticizing Obama this morning (on Fox & Friends) for playing so much golf and appearing so disengaged at a critical time for the country.

Isn't he there already with two?
