The White House was scrambling Monday to put a positive face on an upcoming summit of Persian Gulf states after learning leaders from four of the six invited nations are expected to skip.
While those nations are still sending representatives to the summit being hosted by President Obama later this week at Camp David, the absence of crucial heads of state -- notably, Saudi Arabia's new king -- could present an awkward situation for the administration. But State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf rejected the notion this was a "snub," and White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest likewise said the administration is "confident" that Saudi Arabia and other nations will be "ably represented" at the summit.

It's no snub. A snub would be myriad steps up the political butt-kicking. It's an absolute embarrassment, slap in the face for the Muslim Ass cracker, who is finally being seen as the has been Community leader,politically impotent, flaccid as lame duck season has arrived unseasonably early.
It’s actually a ritual of adoration. Yeah, that’s it!
Cancel and save taxpayer dollars. Obama can instead spend some time with Mooch, which also will save us money to not be flying her on another weekend trip.
They hate him worse than we do. Guess he has his prayer rug all to himself.
Pray America is waking
Miss US Summit—sounds like a beauty contest.
Well, we all know the rats lie as a matter of course. Therefore, if they say it isn’t a snub, then we can best believe it IS a snub.
This fiasco shows once again the utter ineptitude of amateur hour at State.You don’t just snap your fingers and expect six Heads of State to drop everything and come running. This takes a lot of time and diplomatic maneuvering. Plus, it also shows these rulers have no confidence that anything substantive would come of it. They don’t see the point of taking time out of their jobs to go play monkey boy for 0bama’s photo op.
It must really suck to think you are the Chief King and none of the other Kings pay any attention to you.
Hey, Barack, they’re just not all that into you.
Sucks being you, doesn’t it...
Its my party and I’ll cry if I want to,
cry if I want to, cry if I want to.
You want cry too if it happened to you.
Miss US Summit
Sounds like one of those old-school hydroplanes.
Or maybe they think that having all the Saudi leaders meeting with Obama is dangerous. Someone might try to take Obama out, and they would be collateral damage. That is why they are sending their flunkies.
WHY should they attend??
Obama will show up, utter some long-winded meaningless speech, then have them all break down into “Understanding and working groups”, or some such meaningless liberal drivel, where they will be lectured about gay rights.
