Obama skipped Saturday's meeting of national security team on Ukraine crisis
AmericanThinker.com ^ | 3-2-2014 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 03/02/2014 7:12:52 AM PST by servo1969

“What, me worry?” seems to be the operating philosophy of President Obama as a serious crisis brews in Eastern Europe. Daniel Halper reports an almost unbelievable level of Obama nonchalance toward his national security responsibilities in the Weekly Standard:

A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama's team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend.

"The President's national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon," reads the full statement.

But:

According to Time magazine's Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting. "Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team," says Miller.

Oh, well, never mind then. All is well.

For f-s sake...
God save us from this fag prince of incompetence.
I've seen coat hangers that inspired more confidence.

Him being there may just make things worse.

He’s clueless about national security as well as many other things he’s flat out dangerous.

Just as well that The Stain missed the meeting. He wouldn’t contribute anything at all worthwhile to begin with. Better that he occupy his time with Reggie Love.

The only threat this guy is concerned about is the one posed by the American people.

We are the only enemy in the eyes of this President.

He skips the meetings because he takes marching orders from his handlers. He doesn’t decide anything and it has been a long time since he has even made pretend that he does.

I don’t blame him for not attending. The meeting was probably 10:30 or 11 AM, well before his normal teddy-beddy wakeup time.

As in Benghazi, this admin is a few plays behind the facts on the ground. Obama will go to the Ukrainian border with policy statements, and G8 suspension papers in his hand, only to find out that Armed Russian Troops passed through, 2 days earlier. He will look westward and wait, and wait.

It certainly is delightful to know that even though he skipped the meeting, he was fully briefed by Susan Rice.

No doubt she told him there is no need for concern, Putin and his army are just in Ukraine filming a travel documentary.

Maybe the administration is awaiting the Oscar presentations before selecting a video that they can claim provoked the Ruskies into this action.

The only thing left after that is to then jail whoever is responsible for the film.

Crisis over.

It’s been said that Obama does nothing right.

I think him skipping this meeting proves that wrong.

The less involved he is, the better off we may be.

He’s scarred to death of being goaded to any form of action. He’s been furnished with transcripts. But he’s afraid of those too.

Why show up when everything is going as planed. The goal
is to get Russian military bases established in Cuba and
Venezuela. To the biggest jackass to ever hold public
office, it would only be fair if we let Russia and China
have military bases in this hemisphere just like we have
abroad. Then we can be shown our place in the world.
Obama is truly an enemy of the United States.

I couldn’t IMAGINE the trouble we would be in if 0bama were facing the same situation in the world as Roosevelt during the late 30s/early 40s. We would be in DEEP trouble! We would have responded to Pearl Harbor with a strongly worded press release, while pulling all of our forces out from the Pacific, and the Axis powers would have taken over the world. The Russians would have hung on for a few years, putting up a good fight, but would have eventually collapsed to being attacked by the Germans/Italians from one front and the Japanese from the other - ending with Hitler dropping the A Bomb on major Russian Cities.

This is how electing someone like 0bama can be a HISTORICALLY CATASTROPHIC mistake!

The smartest most brilliant man ever to occupy the oval office doesn’t need to be briefed on situations of international importance....there is nothing he could learn from these mere mortals....

He already threatened Putin by letting the world G8 summit know he will not grace their presence with his magnificence..

The man is a egomaniac....

I agree. When I told my liberal kids that a few years ago they were incensed.

I wish! This reminded me of an old SNL skit - Regan was being portrayed as a bumbling, senile old man, talking to a child. Then, behind closed doors, he takes command, starts giving orders, details and assignments on a developing issue. Funny.

We now have a CIC who knows NOTHING about the world. And his vision will make us Zimbabwe or Cuba.

What do you want from a professional aggitator? The missing link probably cares not one whit about any of this because his goal is to leave office with everyone on the public dole and the US as a third rate world former power. His fawns will marvel about how they are living a comfortable life basking in his magnificance. Whomever follows him, well, they will be the bill collector making el presidente’s era look so much better by comparison.

On our current trajectory, which is picking up speed on the downside every day, by Jan 2017 most all of the former USSR will be back more powerful then when the enigma took over here; the middle east will be worse off too with most of the countries allied with either Russia or Iran, south america will be in an economic bloc with both China and Russia and the US will be reduced to the economic equal of Britain or Italy while deplomatically we will have the status of Portugal and a military status on a par with France.
