Sleeping in, is he?

Julie Brueckheimer September 10, 2013 at 10:52 am

Yes, all stinky and snorey.

It will be interesting to hear how Obama will spin this disaster in his speech.
According to Mic Wright in Daily Telegraph a serious looking Assad said the following to CBS Charlie Rose: ” How can you tell what happened íf you don´t have evidence ? We´re not like the American administration, we are not a social media administration. We are a government that deals with reality ”
And Wright writes: Assad dismisses the US administration as a Twitter and FaceBook obsessed group of posers. Image is triumphing over substance. Most of the conversation is not about the lives of men, women and children but about how the narrative is playing out.

That is very well said. Putin and Assad now appear to be the grown ups here. Their initiative might be the solution of this Sarajevo 1914 like situation. But I do hope that Obama will be politically mortally wounded by the affair.

Obama is truly a pathetic “leader/president”… but the ‘media’ will once again cover & apologize for him, the Congress will dare not call out Obama’s clueless and shameful “leadership”.

Julie Brueckheimer September 10, 2013 at 10:53 am

I’ll have to say that the reaction of the American people from all sides has been encouraging. The media was already covering and apologizing–supporting would be the better word–and the American people didn’t buy it.

Star September 10, 2013 at 11:07 am

So you are for the so-called unbelievably small attack?

Julie Brueckheimer September 10, 2013 at 11:41 am

Huh? Where do you get that?

Julie Brueckheimer September 10, 2013 at 11:43 am

I am about as non-interventionist as you can get. Only if the United States is attacked or about to be attacked.

Star September 10, 2013 at 12:44 pm

Agreed…I misinterpreted the above comment. Maybe this whole thing is a setup, maybe it’s a delaying action, maybe it’s a way for Obama and Assad to save face, maybe it’s not going to take care of the weapons–but the weapons weren’t going to disappear with that wrist slap, either. So this could be better.

Where’s Michelle?
MrsObama and Eva Longoria will fly off to Wisconsin on Thursday to visit a high school and encourage people to drink more water.

Is this trip really necessary?

Lizzy September 10, 2013 at 7:10 am

No I’ve never seen two women that are more of a complete waste of space than Michelle and Eva. This is just a taxpayer day trip for
these two in the midst of a crisis.

Bitter Clinger September 10, 2013 at 7:35 am

Moochelle isn’t happy unless she’s bossing people around and telling them how to live their lives. She who must be obeyed.

AFVet September 10, 2013 at 11:27 am

She’s a bigger joke than her ‘husband’, literally !

srdem65 September 10, 2013 at 7:42 am

oops. I forgot to add that Eva Longoria is a paid spokesperson for Pepsi and has made many commercials for them.

Girly1 September 10, 2013 at 8:36 am

She is also dating the washed-up ex-mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villagraigosa, who is now an ‘advisor’ to Herbalife in Century City. Looks like Obama passed him up for a nifty Cabinet postion after his disastrous performance at the DNC last year.

The first grifter has spent the last 5 years ingratiating herself with celebrities who wouldn’t give her the time of day if she was back in Chicago. She is as vapid as her husband – a black eye for America.

AZ Granny September 10, 2013 at 6:31 pm

It just struck me about the conflict of interest with MO because Pepsi sells water. Taxpayers should not have to pay for her trip.

Otis Driftwood September 10, 2013 at 9:26 am

not necessary at all. WI is just fine tyvm without their help (not that i would call it help.. more like a sales pitch). Need to look at the SNAP program, is bottled water apart of it?

Robin H September 10, 2013 at 10:23 am

So do Wisconsiners not drink any water? I didn’t realize they were in such dire need of intervention. /sarc/

WNY_ROC September 10, 2013 at 11:00 am

Perhaps our friends in WI drink too much milk.

Star September 10, 2013 at 11:09 am

Water instead of what–Red Bull? What a boondoggle. (I just like that word.)

AZ Granny September 10, 2013 at 1:43 pm

MO was never really proud of her country until she saw all the perks of travel that came with the WH.

Langley Spook September 10, 2013 at 7:11 am

“11am PDB”…? The working day is half-way done and Obama is just starting his? WTF!

DOES ANYONE IN THE “WH PRESS CORPS” HAVE THE BALLS TO ASK WHY OBAMA STARTS HIS DAY SO LATE?
The “WH Press Corps” MUST KNOW Obama’s “real schedule”… but will not report it because it would make Obama look truly pathetic.

WNY_ROC September 10, 2013 at 11:02 am

Perhaps the President is using the morning to re-write and practice his speech tonight. If I were him, I would be working that teleprompter all morning long.

Kimbly September 10, 2013 at 7:25 am

The new narrative this morning was that there was potential for a “diplomatic solution”. Obama said he was going to “have Kerry and his security team speak with Russia” (paraphrasing). Wait, wasn’t OBAMA just in Russia not even one week ago – face to face with the leader of Russia?? And what is going to be the diplomatic solution? Syrians will go on killing each other and we’ll look the other way? Wow, Obama, what a victory!

Michael September 10, 2013 at 8:24 am

Yes, actually, Obama hatched the idea of the weapons transfer and broached it to Putin when they were together last week. Putin asked to think about the great idea. And yesterday, Kerry went public with it for the first time.

Putin, publicity hound that he is, made it sound like it was his idea all along, even though it was Obama who came up with it.

Who would have known? How about a groundswell of support for Obama’s second Nobel Prize.

KmikeB September 10, 2013 at 8:01 am

And at 9:04:25 pm Barry and the boys can work on this weeks fantasy football rosters. Making good use of the White House Situation Room.

WNY_ROC September 10, 2013 at 11:04 am

I thought he did that between shots on the golf course.

cincycinco September 10, 2013 at 8:26 am

Any word on when WE get the breifing on what he did, where he was, and who ordered the military stand-down that resulted in the death of America’s representative to Libya yet? I mean, tomorrow it will have been a year. SURELY he has some answers for us by now…

Girly1 September 10, 2013 at 8:40 am

The spin has begun. Joe Manchin is on Morning Joe talking about how ‘we have to applaud the President for coming to Congress”. Does Mr. Manchin not realize the coward-in-chief was using Congress as human shields in a desperate attempt to save himself from the political firing squad?

Never before has a President come under such heavy condemnation from the publlc, the media, and members of his own Party for actions that were not only inexplicable – but deranged. Impeachment was becoming an option. Obama was a pariah on the world stage.

The miraculous turn-around yesterday, just hours before he was to be confronted head-on by his disgruntled media lapdogs, isn’t passing the smell test, imo. Everyone is shaking their heads this morning – still talking about Obama’s utter incompetence over the last 2 weeks – still speculating about his overall credibility and his ability to survive this monumental lapse of judgment.

Tonight’s ‘speech’ is going to be stomach-churning. Another ‘drive-by’ on America!

cincycinco September 10, 2013 at 8:50 am

‘we have to applaud the President for coming to Congress”.

Really? We have to applaud the President for actually doing something REQUIRED in our founding document, for actually OBEYING the rule of law – FOR ONCE?

I don’t expect MY boss to applaud ME for simply doing my JOB. Why should Obama?

Girly1 is right that he wouldn’t even be bothering if the public – and especially his base – weren’t so heavily against it. He just wants someone to blame, and maybe an election issue so he can get the rubber-stamp Congress he wants in ’14. As with everything, including his much-ballyhooed “getting” of Osama, he’s also trying to set someone ELSE up to take the fall if it all goes South. His handmaidens Boehner and McCain will do nicely, at least for a start…

cincycinco September 10, 2013 at 8:41 am

“9:01:30 pm || Delivers statement to the nation on Syria; The East Room”

This wording may not be his, but the sentiment is. Obama doesn’t take questions. Obama doesn’t take advice. Obama doesn’t believe he has to actually interact with his subjects or his representatives. Obama simply “Delivers statement” like we should believe everything he says as fact, and then states his will like we U.S. Persons are goverened under the Führerprinzip and not the Constitution.

“Delivers Statement”.

Well, time to deliver a statement back to him. A simple one.

NO.

He’s not heard this during his “Presidency”. Adolecent that he is, he tests boundaries until someone tells it to him.

It’s time we did.

Mr. President? A word from your citizens;

NO NO NONONONO
NONO NO NO NO
NO NO NO NO NO
NO NO NO NO NO
NO NONO NO NO
NO NO NONONONO

Time and past. Repeat until the Obama Presidency is over, and the adults can rebuild the country he wrecked with his tantrums.
