Skip to comments.Why is Obama skipping more than half of his daily intelligence meetings?

President Obama is touting his foreign policy experience on the campaign trail, but startling new statistics suggest that national security has not necessarily been the personal priority the president makes it out to be. It turns out that more than half the time, the commander in chief does not attend his daily intelligence meeting.
The Government Accountability Institute examined President Obamas 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. By contrast, Obamas predecessor, George W. Bush almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.
I asked National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor about the findings, and whether there were any instances where the president attended the intelligence meeting that were not on his public schedule. Vietor did not dispute the numbers, but said the fact that the president, during a time of war, does not attend his daily intelligence meeting on a daily basis is not particularly interesting or useful.

Because he’s only half as intelligent as he needs to be to be president.
This is what happens when you elect a president who has never done a real job before and has had everything handed to him. There’s no work ethic, there’s no sense of responsibility. We have as our president a spoiled, pampered man-child.
Yep. Some people can’t handle a whole lot of intelligence.
He could at least send Biden in his place to the intelligence meetings.
Oh, wait. . .
Is this a trick question? Ummm...because Valerie Jarrett is attending them?
There is less intelligence when the Obamaloon is in the room.
uhhh ... not interested ?
They interfere with his golf game?
Do they happen early in the morning...?
He couldn’t even vote, “Present”?
Because Valerie Jarrett is running the country? He knows he can trust her to do the Communist thing, so he’s free to beg for money and golf.
But he thinks he's more intelligent than all the intelligence to be presented.
half wit commie trash
Why is Obama skipping more than half of his daily intelligence meetings?
He doesn’t have any, so what is he missing.
I wonder if he sends anyone in his place, like Valerie Jarrett, or at least as bad, Moochelle.
Since Zer0’s never had a job where someone actually reported to him, he’s never experienced any of these them there meeting things,
he’s always talked to the mirror, or a teleprompter.
Stupid and lazy.
