I thought Obama skipped the daily intel meetings.
yup...even the WaComPost mentioned it: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obamas-hypocrisy-on-intelligence-briefings/2016/12/19/8b1fbed0-c5f4-11e6-bf4b-2c064d32a4bf_story.html?utm_term=.d35f53f183e5
Obama only missed more than half of them.
You are correct. His attendance was like around 40 percent if my memory serves. Unlike Bush, who almost never missed a briefing. Personally, I'd rather people tell me what's going on, while I have a hard copy to review. That's how I would do it.
