National Security not a Priority for Barry

Apparently, the once and fallen messiah would rather catch a quick pick-up game or a round of golf. At least this is what we are to conclude from the fact that he hasn't attended even HALF of his daily intelligence briefings during his presidency:

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney calls a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report finding that President Obama has missed over half of his daily intelligence briefings “hilarious.”

“It’s revealing that Mr. Carney did not dispute the Government Accountability Institute’s actual numbers,” said Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer in an interview with Breitbart News. “That’s probably because our findings are drawn directly from the White House’s own calendar.”

The study found the following:

The Government Accountability Institute, a new conservative investigative research organization, examined President Obama’s schedule from the day he took office until mid-June 2012, to see how often he attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) — the meeting at which he is briefed on the most critical intelligence threats to the country. During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times — or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent — falling to just over 38 percent.

The last time we had a president who didn't take national security and the terrorism threat seriously was during the Clinton Administration and we are commemorating the 11th anniversary of the result of that dereliction of duty. It's no coincidence that we just "celebrated" the 14th anniversary of Clinton's lies about Monica Lewinsky so we know where his priorities were. And this guy is the best they can do for an elder statesman in the Democratic Party, but I digress.We can't afford another president who is even less engaged in what should be one of his primary duties: To keep this country safe. Add this to the long list of reasons why we need to boot this guy out of office in November.
