Obama Blows Off National Security Meeting to Attend Film Festival
tpnn.com ^ | March 2, 2014 | Jennifer Burke

Posted on 03/17/2014 4:13:28 PM PDT by grundle

The Weekly Standard reported yesterday that, despite the invasion of Ukraine by Russia as well as Putin calling Obama’s bluff after the ‘stern warning’ given to Russia, Barack Obama failed to attend his National Security Team meeting to discuss the situation between Russia and Ukraine. Instead, he was later ‘briefed’ by Susan Rice.

According to Todd Starnes from FOX News, rather than attend the security briefing, Obama instead ‘attended a White House Film Festival where pool reporters said he socialized with second graders.’

Prior to the terrorist attack at Benghazi, Obama demonstrated a pattern of missing his security intelligence meetings. It seems that this president is less concerned about learning first hand about national and international security concerns and more concerned with socializing.

At least he socialized with those of the same maturity level.

Just how many dereliction of duty charges will it take before this POS is impeached?

He doesn’t have to attend these meetings. He’s not in charge.

If Obama would have attended he would have been the most dumb and useless person in the room.

Oh well, Soros is running things and calling the shots. Obama is just a puppet getting paid well to sell out the US.

Nothing to see here.

As I recall, Samantha Powers shirked her responsibility, as well, by attending a Charlie Chaplan film fest in Ireland.

Well at least mac daddy will not look like a pu**y again by drawing another worthless embarrassing red line.

One recalls how the Left pilloried George W. Bush for reading My Pet Goat to school children while the terrorist attacks of September, 2991 were in progress.

As long as we continue to see these kinds of stories in the Weekly Standard instead of the NYT Obama will feel free to continue to behave like a delinquent.

To be fair to Obama, national security meetings are intended for grownups.

True, it is surprising that people still think Obama attends this trivial crap.

We knew he has better things to do. Like golfing, playing cards with Reggie, watching ESPN, eating lobster, and wagyu beef, and ice cream. Important stuff like that.

I’m sure Obama expends the same level of effort at the job of President that he did editing the Harvard Law Review.

He wants no possibility that he was informed of anything so that he can remain outside the fray. Lesson learnt from hildabeast. He wants not to be around anything that ties him to the downfall of the counrty. “ I didn’t know “will always be his first words.

“Socialized with second graders”. Not a lot of depth of questions there, other than “are you the real Br’er Rabbit.

Obama’s threats of sanctions (?) carry about as much danger as taking a butter knife to a sword fight.....as usual Putin had plenty of advanced warning Obama might freeze various Russian bank accounts here...so, Shazam! The Russians probably got their money out while Barry dithered....
