  1. BHO is trying to determine defense plans. He wants to know if jihadist muslims attack Turkey from the rear, as is their wont, whether Greece will help?

  2. Lookie here! President Passerby has a new shiny object!
    President Passerby is devoting the entire day and evening to Turkey’s Islamist PM and arch enemy of Israel. Wonder what they’re cooking up for Bibi…more phone calls, more apologies for the deaths on the State-sponsored terrorist flotilla that was trying break through the Israeli blockade in the Gaza strip to get weapons to Hamas?

    Worse yet, President Passerby is going to drag Erdogan out for a joint presser…two days after dragging Cameron out as a prop. I don’t think Americans are in the mood to watch another dog and pony show, especially one with an Israeli-hating Islamist! Get another schtik, little Barry, this one isn’t working!

  3. Tonight I changed my homepage to, ( about:blank ). Which I think describes this Administration to a tee. (pun intended)
    WHD is still atop the favorites menu though.

  4. 1:30 pm || Benghazi damage control with senior staff
    2:30 pm || IRS damage control with senior staff
    3:30 pm || AP damage control with senior staff
    5:30 pm || EPA damage control with senior staff
    7:30 pm || Fill in the blank damage control with senior staff

  5. Perhaps Issa should call the Prime Minister before his committee and ask him what Benghazi was all about and where those arms from Libya are going…

  6. 1:00pm – PM Erdogan subs for Jay Carney, conducting the WH Press Briefing in his native tongue, at the request of the WH Press Corpse

  7. So a whole day with the PM of Turkey and a morning with the PM of the UK because he had to go off and fund raise? The shortsighted nature of this and incorrect prioritizing is unbelievable.

  8. “9:50 am || Holds a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey”

    Obama cuddles with another Sunni like himself. Surpise, surprise.

    “Even if Obama were to secure a commitment from Erdogan to check Islamist groups like Jabhat al-Nusra, Turkey has demonstrated that is not ideologically inclined to promote anything but a Muslim Brotherhood takeover, which would not help advance pluralism. Obama can nonetheless contain the damage caused by Turkey’s adoption of the Sunni cause, by helping to save Erdogan from himself.”

    Once they get done doing the bunny hug, I’d be a litte worried if I were an Alawite woman…

    “The rape of non-Sunni women in Syria by fighters opposed to the regime of President Bashar Assad, has been legitimised by a fatwa issued by an Islamic cleric.
    The Washington Times reported Salfist cleric Sheikh Yasir al-Ajlawni posted a YouTube video saying he was preparing a legitimate fatwa for Muslims fighting to topple Assad to “capture and have sex with” non-Sunni women. The fatwa would legitimise the rape of Christian, Alawite and other women in Syria not belonging to the Sunni sect of Islam. ”

    Can’t WAIT to see what our glorious leader does with THIS guy…

  9. Quotes from Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan:

    On “moderate islam”:
    “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

    Quoting from a poem in a speech:
    “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers….”

    He and Barry should get along just fine.
