  1. What is it with these guys? EVERY SINGLE TIME there is a briefing or a statement by Obama, it is at least 15 minutes late. Seems like the most powerful office in the world would have the most professional people in the world running it. A City Council in the backwaters of the midwest can do better…

    • Clinton people were even worse. Bush and his aides were on time. It took some getting used to since I was used to showing up 15 minutes late to everything so that I wouldn’t waste my time sitting there.

      • Yes, I’ve read about how slack Clinton was. Personally, I think that anyone (including the President) who is routinely late is showing thinly-veiled contempt for those around him. Respecting other people’s time is a character issue. Of course, since Obama ranks low in the character category, no surprises there.

  2. Scott, this type of thing is a habit. If you are concerned about being professional, a person will establish a habit of doing certain things. Typically, timeliness (or the lack there of) is reflected in the leader. In this case, the Prez does not have professional habits and does not have experience being a leader of people.

  3. Wondering why there is a series of questions about “unscheduled meetings”? Has happened now the last couple of days. Some one smell something?
