He’s probably doing what he was doing during the Benghazi attack. That means we’ll never know where he was or what he was doing.

Good Lord, in addition to all his other Marxist faults, he has got to be the laziest motherbleep to ever occupy the White House.

Just pathetic. I hope all the idiots and fools that put this clown in twice are happy now.

This isn’t newsworthy. It would be if he’d actually attended a security meeting.

In a technocracy, these tasks are the realm of subject matter experts who take broad direction from their illustrious leader... sort of like the numerous White House Czars.

It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he and Putin are really buddies in private. I think nothing would make Obama happier than to undo what Reagan accomplished. They are both communists..well except bring full blown communism here on which he is succeeding..good times for the one

Just my opinion, but I doubt that Putin sees the Narcissistic Little Marxist Bastard as being on an equal plane with him. Russians are not known for having much tolerance for blacks, or Muzzies or pansies/sissies. I think that Putin probably holds Obama at the same level of total contempt as I do.

It’s painful having this guy as president.

Can you imagine if we are left in a war with RUSSIA when he leaves office?

How will the lapdog press keep that off the front page?

I have no clue, but they’ll find a way, of that I’m sure.
