It's Par For The Course

Problem: President Obama skips more than half his daily intelligence briefings.

Solution: Everyone email the White house with this article. Maybe one of his staff will throw a sticky note into his golf bag.

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. embassies in at least seven countries in the Middle East, Africa and the Caucasus are warning of possible anti-American protests following the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

The embassies in Armenia, Burundi, Kuwait, Sudan, Tunisia and Zambia, along with the embassy in Egypt, which was hit by a protest on Tuesday, all issued warnings on Wednesday advising Americans to be particularly vigilant.

The warnings, posted on the embassies' websites, do not report any specific threat to Americans but note that demonstrations can become violent.

The protest in Cairo and the attack in Benghazi appear to have been responses to an inflammatory anti-Muslim video posted on the Internet.

I seem to remember Bush doing a lot of golfing and ignoring daily intelligence briefings, but thankfully that didn't lead to any terrorists attacks.

Bush quit golfing after 9-11 if I recall. I think he did maybe 24 rounds in 8 years. Obie has over 100 rounds down now....

You must be striking some chords, Sig, the disinformation and dispirit crowd is all over you lately. Regular readers, too, obviously. Heh! I've seen them popping up all over conservative sites. Oh, right, college started and the kids have settled in. Most likely they aren't even getting paid for their "work".

Well, and the other non-productive folk are seeing their free payday slipping away. Send out the troll squad!

tee - put the koolaid down kid, you're slurping it too fast and you'll hurt yourself.

Obugger has played 4X more golf in less than 4 years (104 rounds) than dubya played (24) in 8 years. Obama has spent more hours playing golf in the last six months than he has in attending his ,Oh so precious, economic meetings.

Grow up tee, willya?

Steve - absolutely right.

Doom - I sure hope so. But they never seem to learn.

Kid said...

The middle East is going to explode with obamas unbelievably incompetent mismanagement of foreign affairs.

Hell, he's got his 187 year old Secy of State apologizing to these barbaric jackals.

And as much of an incompetent asshole obama is, the media are 100 times worse.
Hell they've got people like tee being perpetual athletic supporters for obama. How do those balls taste tee? Wait, don't tell me. Some things should stay in DC.

Kid - the entire area is a powder keg and these idiots are playing with matches. This is not going to be pretty.

The Democrat Party is responsible for the nightmare that is Iran. Jimmy, thanks.

Kid said...

Sig, I think Ben gave our people in the field a Heads Up today. If you know what I mean. I don't think it's gonna be long now.

I actually predicted about a year ago-just for fun- that Sept 15 would be D-Day for Israel-Iran. We'll see, but I do think it will be prior to the election for a number of reasons.

WoFat said...

When obama skips the INTEL briefings, does Biden sit in instead? Methinks we're in real trouble.

sig94 said...

Fradgan - Of course no one is going to bring that up on the left side of the aisle.

sig94 said...

Kid - the Israelis may go hot now that Obugger is in a position where he cannot afford to seem weak in the face of this outrage, not now, not with the election just around the corner. Ole Ben may be silently thanking the muzzies for giving him this God-gifted opportunity to bitch slap the Iranis.

WoFat -Biden may sit there, but like a kid sitting on his dad's lap behind the steering wheel, he can't reach the gas and doesn't know how to put the car in gear.
