There is a pattern of President Obama being completely disengaged from his duties of the office, especially in times of crisis.
Obama AWOL During Benghazi Attack
Obama'a pattern of disengagement has a long history. In 2012, we find out from Leon Panetta, that Obama was AWOL during the 7 hour Benghazi attack which started at about 3 pm on a Friday, September 11, 2012. Obama didn't seem interested enough in the situation where 4 Americans were slain, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. I guess he had another golf outing?
From Washington Times:
Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta on Thursday revealed he personally broke the news to President Obama in a 10 minute meeting that the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, was under attack last year — but he and the president didn’t speak the rest of the night as the assault on the compound unfolded.
Testifying to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Mr. Panetta said the president told them to “do whatever you need to do to be able to protect our people there,” though when it came to specifics the president “left it up to us.”So, in a critical moment, the President chose to be missing-in-action. Also the President has missed most of the National Intelligence briefings at the White House in his entire 2nd term, including the run-up to the Benghazi attack. Could you imagine President Bush missing a single intelligence briefing meeting? He attended all of them.
Obama was AWOL during the entire crisis and didn't even call Panetta after being informed of the attack. Then we had a series of lies from the White House for weeks trying to "white-wash" and minimize the nature of the attack when it was known to be a planned terrorist attack right from the beginning. And of course no one will ever find what was more important at that time for our Slacker-In-Chief.
Obama Skips Meetings After Russia OKs Invasion of Crimea
During another national crisis, Obama skips more briefings. From Reuters on March 1, 2014 (h/t to Zero Hedge):
"The president's national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options," said a senior administration official.
Obama did not attend the meeting, but he has been briefed about it by his national security adviser, Susan Rice, and his national security team, an official said.Then fast forward to March 15 after Kerry returned from speaking with the Russian ambassador in London. From Reuters on March 15, 2014:
President Barack Obama's national security team discussed the Ukraine crisis in a session at the White House on Saturday after Secretary of State John Kerry's return from talks with his Russian counterpart in London.
Obama did not attend the meeting but was being briefed about it and other developments involving Ukraine, said Laura Lucas Magnuson, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council.Do you see a pattern? Congratulations America, by re-electing Obama, you brought in to the biggest flim-flam "performance" artist to ever to infect the White House. Obama is the most un-serious President ever!
From Zero Hedge, obviously there are more pressing matters at hand like pitching Obamacare to toddlers, and because there is always time for 18 holes before World War III. And let's not forget, nobody does a better job of explaining to Vladimir Vladimirovich the "costs" of showing the world just how much of a laughing stock US foreign policy has become.
