So……4pm tee time?

pianogirl88 April 25, 2013 at 9:59 pm

I hope not….that would really mess up my commute home from the college! Friday afternoon on the beltway is bad enough without having to deal with the entourage from the WH.

RickW April 26, 2013 at 6:31 am

PG, we subjects are expected to sacrifice if Dear Leader concludes he needs social interaction.

Otis Driftwood April 26, 2013 at 11:20 am

Actually he is having the meeting at 3 PM to firm up his golf schedule when he visits the area.

Back on track — celebrate abortion, check out things in the ME and see about getting some more immigrant labor and Democrat voters into the country.

1:55 pm || Meets with King Abdullah of Jordan

Jordan’s getting over-run with refugees from Syria. Tuesday, he met with one of the chief financiers of the rebels, Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani emir of Qatar, and another one, Crown Prince Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed, on the 16th.

I wonder what’s been happening in Syria while we’ve been looking to Boston.

Re: Syria the ever moving Obama red line is in play again due to recent chemical weapons information. Most likely Obama to punt to UN who will be in charge of our ME policy. However, this pales compared to the rising importance of the climate change threat to our national security — see most recent Tom Donilon comment.
And Holder swept in and made sure the FBI examination of Baby Boy Bomber for intelligence was stopped to the amazement of the FBI.
The King and Queen are exhausted from their day of playing grown ups.

Julie Brueckheimer April 26, 2013 at 12:07 am

Holder or his boss. According to Michelle Bachman, it could only be one of those two, and also according to her, four Congressmen are going to find out.

gracepmc April 26, 2013 at 12:17 am

It’s kind of moot at this point. The deed is done. The Obama Administration wants this contained. I see no interest on the part of the Administration to ascertain linkage, training, etc. or to in any way treat this seriously. And no interest in the media to go beyond what the Administration wants.
Got Nanny Bloomberg’s attention though since right before the feds swept in the kid spilled the beans about bombs intended for Times Square.
And to think what else he might have said or knows ….

Mandy Manners April 26, 2013 at 7:04 am

I don’t know if this can be contained as easily as the attack on our consulate because it happened right here, and the victims are not bound by any kind of secrecy laws.

Mandy Manners April 26, 2013 at 7:06 am

Holder or his boss


Isn’t that the same thing?

Mandy Manners April 26, 2013 at 7:10 am

Boston’s bombing victims: the new “bumps in the road”.

Mandy Manners April 26, 2013 at 6:58 am

rising importance of the climate change threat to our national security — see most recent Tom Donilon comment.


Basing a bogus foreign policy on bogus science? I’m glad we have the smartest man ever in charge of our nation. I can sleep well now!

Otis Driftwood April 26, 2013 at 11:23 am

It can’t be bogus science – He’s the Scientist in Chief, and is happy to tell you that!

srdem65 April 25, 2013 at 11:22 pm

After writing, then erasing, several comments about MrO speaking at the Planned Parenthood “Gala” (shudder), I realized that PeggyNoonan is right, we’re all suffering from Obama fatigue.
Most of the regular readers here won’t listen to him speak , or even care what he has to say anymore. I get it.
He’s become tiresome, combative and alien to us.

gracepmc April 25, 2013 at 11:41 pm

Alien? Oh no! I believe that word has been banished from the realm’s lexicon.

Playrighter April 26, 2013 at 2:35 am

How about almost fully documented sort of overseas immigrant?

Julie Brueckheimer April 25, 2013 at 11:52 pm

You and most of the regular readers here discovered that long before Peggy.

Susan April 26, 2013 at 9:17 am

Well said, srdem. What can one say about the supposed leader of the free world when he celebrates the culture of death, derision, and demagoguery. He may have been born in America but he doesn’t love her the way we do.

Lizzy April 26, 2013 at 4:43 am

Syria using chemical weapons….crossed the line in the sand well the first
and most urgent thing to do do Friday Planned Parenthood Gala. That
seems right doesn’t it?

Stephen Hall April 26, 2013 at 6:20 am

The President must be pretty tired after the stress of facing the man he constantly criticized for 4 years. Earning a new geological marker in Washington now known as “Bush’s Fault”.

JBH April 26, 2013 at 9:56 am

I made the same comment when the earthquake hit DC. They were going to call it the “Bush Fault”!

RickW April 26, 2013 at 6:30 am (h/t NY Post) So Dear Leader’s bad April continues…..His potential nominee as Ambassador to France withdraws because he is under investigation by the FBI for being involved in high stakes poker games with the Russian mob…..Wait, where were those Boston bombers from again? Hmmmmm

As Sonny & Cher once sang “….and the Beat Goes On…..”

Mandy Manners April 26, 2013 at 7:30 am

Maybe this is Anna Wintours chance to snag an embassy!

Susan April 26, 2013 at 9:26 am

Very interesting, Rick. The Chicago mob schmoozes with the Russian mob. Ain’t that special.

Bitter Clinger April 26, 2013 at 9:52 am

No security briefing. No need I guess. The threats are all behind us….

Star April 26, 2013 at 11:24 am

Anyone hear any more about the three friends of Suspect #1 who were shot gangland style?

Otis Driftwood April 26, 2013 at 11:27 am

nothing new on that front, but I would say it’s quite a qwink-a-dink

Otis Driftwood April 26, 2013 at 11:25 am

Nope.. we won!.. Didn’t you see his press release??
