Empty Oval Office featured in anti-Obama ad
Posted by CNN Political Unit
(CNN) - The Oval Office sits empty while violence erupts in the Arab world in a new ad from the conservative group American Future Fund.
The ad cites reports that President Barack Obama has missed a significant number of his daily national security briefings. The White House spokesman disputed those reports after they were published in September - the distinction being in-person briefings versus the written presidential daily briefing.
"President Obama skips 50% of his national security briefings," the narrator says. "September 11, 2012: Our ambassador is murdered, U.S. embassies under attack."
The president, the ad says, skipped his national security briefing the next day to "attend a fundraiser in Vegas."
The questions about the president missing intelligence briefings were raised by Republicans shortly after foreign policy success was a theme at the Democratic National Convention.
The ad also shows footage of Obama on ABC's "The View," then Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, while the narrator says Obama was "too busy to meet with our closest ally in the region."
Sources told CNN in September that the White House turned down a meeting request when Obama and Netanyahu were in New York for the United Nations General Assembly meeting last week. The White House also disputed those reports.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied that Obama has missed national security briefings.

Obambi’s missing of national security briefings is an item that Romney will continually offer in the next debate.
Clint Eastwood is having the last laugh....
I know Obama spends most of his time campaigning, fundraising, vacationing, golfing, shooting hoops, watching ESPN, yucking it up on Letterman and with the tired old hags on The View, hobnobbing with Clooney, Beyonce, Jay Z and company.
But to tell you all the truth: I sleep more comfortably when he busy doing all of those things than actually managing the nation.
Ok... where can I view the ad... the link only shows a screen shot.
Imagine an empty Oval Office.... cut to scenes of middle east in flames... cut back to Oval office.. a small TV shows Obama on the View.... cut to scenes of Chinese ships threatening Japanese waters.... cut to Oval Office, phone ringing but Barry is on the TV with Letterman instead..... cut to Iran nuke and threats of war with Israel.... back to Oval office.. red phone ringing... knocks at the door.... little TV shows Barry with Jay Z and Beyonce... cut to scenes of unemployed and little TV in Oval Office shows Barry accepting Nobel Peace Prize....
Then show Romney saying “You were elected to be President, not present”
The first debate was D-Day and now all the heavy guns offshore having opened fire and are pounding the enemy! That was always the plan.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie predicts presidential race will be turned upside down after first debate
Doing the work CNN will not do.
Someone needs to put together a political ad that has Dan Rather saying to Obama what he said about Bush on 9/11.
