This might be one of the most embarrassingly accurate breaking news headlines of Obama’s presidency: BREAKING: Obama attends his daily intelligence meeting 3 days in a row.
For the third business day in a row, the president’s official public schedule lists “The President and the Vice President receive the Presidential Daily Brief.”
File under “Pathetic.” Not to mention, “Dangerous.” The president skipped out on eight straight intel briefings during the days surrounding the Sept. 11 embassy attacks in the Middle East.
Visit the American Enterprise Institute’s public policy blog for screen grabs of the president’s schedule.
Obama already received the biggest participation trophy available.
If the president actually attended the briefings as scheduled, here’s a plausible explanation.
We’d say “pics or it didn’t happen,” but we’d probably just get another shot of Obama phoning it in.
