Great point that I’m sure Romney will hammer Obama with on Tuesday.

This is stunning, and there’s no excuse for it.

Not stunning at all. This president wants to destroy America as we know it.

Did not even report "present" for these important happenings in the White House.

Hope Governor Romney gets good mileage out of this.

I am concerned that he no longer cares if he wins reelection. In fact, he probably prefers it. No need to pretend to work hard or want what's in the best interest of a nation he so obviously despises.

What I fear is that as a "parting gift" he has planted the seeds of multiple devastating terror attacks to occur all over our country starting Jan 21, 2013.

In person security briefings have a certain “pucker factor” that you don’t get by mearly reading. I don’t think Obie has the guts to sit through them.

Obama only does what Obama likes, and what doesn’t bore him. Practicing for the debate bored him; now what has been seen by millions cannot be unseen. He can “practice” now; but a day late and a dollar short.

Is Obama studying for the next de3bate??

Hell no....He's trying to figure out how he is going to pay for his Hawaiian vacation.

Maybe Michelle and the girls will have to stay home

Why would it occur to 0bama that his Arab Spring pals would cause him any trouble? Besides, there are many ways to deflect blame.

Of course Reagan, Bush and other lesser mortals had to attend the daily intelligence briefings. Our current ruler finds this all unnecessary because he knows everything they could possibly tell him. He is so intelligent. Have you not seen the crease in his pants? How valuable is the intelligence he receives anyhow? Has anyone informed James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, that we have lost an ambassador. We know (thanks to John Brennan) that he does not watch television “24 hours a day.” Clapper also apparently avoids daily briefings, as demonstrated by his response to a question by Diane Sawyer. When Sawyer asked him, “London. How serious is it? Any implications that it was coming here?” he responded “London?” What a stupid question. London is a city. It is probably as serious as any other city. I think it is unlikely that it will move to the United States, although there was a song about one of its bridges moving to Arizona.

What I would like to ask the President is why he didn't deem it necessary to attend these daily intelligence briefings and what was he doing INSTEAD of getting his narrow behind to them every morning? Sleeping late? Early golf date? Busy fund-raising somewhere? On vacation?

You’re just jealous.

Tell me of any other Kenyan who made it all the way to the WH and Congress just stood there picking their noses.

From now on, a POTUS will not have to be a natural born citizen — Bambi never was.

This is all important but the real nuclear issue is the Darden obamacare stuff. That is devastating for the kenyan. His own supporter cutting employee hours to comply with obamacare rules.

That will hit home to all those who have struggled with employers who limited them to part time hours.

Obamacare is hitting hard right now with news of employers making plans for next year. Also many people filing taxes next week being are being told they face a HUGE tax increase for next year.

People are finally waking up and the polls show it.

I have had these same thoughts for awhile now. I remember Michelle saying something to the effect that whenever Barack would express something negative about the job, she would tell him, "Well, it's what you signed up for!". I think he realized from the start that it was ALL over his "pay grade" and he finally was in something so over his head he could not bluff and BS his way through it. It was way more work than he bargained for and I don't doubt for a minute that he relishes the idea that he just might be able to coast the rest of his life writing the odd book, giving prewritten speeches off his beloved teleprompter and playing golf and basketball whenever he wanted to, with a hefty "retirement" benefit and lifetime healthcare with a team of Secret Service protection to boot, sooner rather than later!

As for his planned "surprise" to get even with America, I actually believe he is too much of a coward to risk a prison sentence and loss of prestige and freebies to go through with it. He is, after all, a narcissist, and it is all about him - a subject he will milk for the rest of his life.
