This country has no leadership. The whole world is falling apart, and Obama can't even manage to show up for work. Yet Roiters runs this story as if something is actually being done. Pathetic.

~~~Obama did not attend the meeting~~~

Vacation?
Golf?
Cheeseburger?
Ice Cream?
LGBT rally?

We’re probably better off that the rookie-in-chief wasn’t there.

President Barack Obama's national security team discussed the Ukraine crisis in a session at the White House on Saturday after a last-ditch bid to find a diplomatic solution to the Cold War-style standoff with Russia floundered.

Just tell Putin: "The 1980s called. They want their foreign policy back."

What would it take for him to attend such a meeting?

Seeing that the meeting was held at his house, all it would have taken is for him to walk down a flight of stairs. Yet the only thing he has on his schedule this week is filling out his NCAA bracket.

Susan Rice told him, Mr. President, there is no need for you to miss your scheduled Remedial Golf Lesson. Michelle says your Golf Coach has already been paid, so Michelle thinks that it would be both imprudent and poor etiquette for you not to show up for your Golf Lesson, don’t you agree?

“What protection treaty? They’re not part of NATO.

I dont know if it is in the form of a treaty but the USA under three presidents promised the USA promised Ukraine if they disarmed we would protect them. The first was Bill Clinton promising protection if they gave up the nuclear weapons they had from the USSR days. Bush continued supporting the promise and Obamas stepped it up a notch assuring them if they downsize their conventional as well arsenal and military in general we would take care of them if Russia got out of line. The United States of America through 3 very corrupt presidents) lied repeatedly to get these people to basically give up their ability to defend themselves.

Something to be proud of. Tis is a country that cannot be trusted anymore, by anyone.

That’s because they were looking for “Crimeria” as the Lurch calls it.

Like most of their meeting, they probably bitched and made fun of President Bush the whole time. In the last five minutes, they probably decided to put 1 American Tank on the polish side of Ukraine’s border.

So....the Ukraines had the promises of three presidents but no signed ratified treaty. We should be worrying about our southern border and getting invaders out of the US, not Ukraine’s.

He keeps making statements about how he is “deeply concerned” about events in the Ukraine, and is “closely monitoring” the situation. What kind of message does this send when he won’t even attend security briefings on the matter?
