So, did Zer0 make any effective decisions or was he just “present!”?

I don’t believe this.

If he was awake he would have demanded they stand down.

Good thing for Obama Libya isn’t a swing state otherwise he would have been SO screwed..He only “Cares” about the Hurricane so that it deflects attention from the blood that he has of 4 dead Americans on his hands

did he watch this live time, maybe they can ask the same question about Libya.

This is such a crock the media have used this storm to cover for Libya and now they are saying he is fully in control and on top of this.

The media is the biggest enemy to this country , without a free and fair press to hold those in power in check then we have a full dictatorship

he was no where when the our border agent got shot and killed by our own guns .
He was no where when people wanted jobs not health care .
He was not anywhere when we had a terrorist attack on 9-11 and then 4 men needed support and we still do not know if he watched the live feed.
Did he watch any of the live feed?
Did he go to sleep during this attack?
Why was the order to stand down given?
Why move assets if they were not to be used?
Why did he got o Vegas knowing what we know today he knew it was a terrorist attack?
Who told Rice to go out and lie?
Why did he lie about this attack?

Funny how politico and others can say oabma was there for a storm but cannot ask questions when issues arise.

ElectionDeflection.

Bush/Katrina, Obama/Sandy rematch. Never let a crisis go to waste.

Dear Leader stayed up all night to make sure he was in control of the storm surge. A few weeks ago he was up watching the storm surge in Bengazhi and made sure it went up in smoke.

Oh, give him a break. He didn’t have an early flight to a fundraiser the next morning so he didn’t need a full night’s sleep.

do I have to say ‘sarc’?

If Sandy had occurred just after the election, would BO have stayed up to monitor the storm?

“Obama briefed on Sandy throughout the night”

SO WHAT! He also stood watching the live streaming video on the computer screen as those men fought for their lives in Benghazi, and didn’t do anything, but go to bed so he’d be rested for his campaign fund raiser the next day in Las Vegas, Nevada.

How can we trust anything to this guy, or any of his cronies, or his political party?

We CANNOT! It’s impossible.

It takes a considerable amount of Presidential moxie to sit in the White House and get updated. I don’t know if I’d be up to it.

No, he would have blamed the Bush environmental policies for causing it.

Don't sweat it!!! You can handle it.

Just skip most of the briefings like Obozo does.

Yeah, when his butt’s on the line he stays awake and gets briefed. For others facing imminent death and fighting for their lives in Benghazi?... Whatever.

Doesn’t matter, you will get the same results asleep, awake, missing or at the bathhouse.

Obozo was just on Fox TV - pretending to be CIC of the storm!!

He warned all agencies to get everything to the storm victims ASAP.

He said "there's no excuse for inaction"!!

Look who is calling the kettle black!!!!

The guy is clueless!! Has no idea what he's talking about....as if the electric companies & all others never handled anything before & are waiting for 'the one' to tell them what to do & how to do it.

I thought the seas were supposed to fall after his election. I guess this is supposed to make up for the four years he’s been out to lunch.

You can politicize a natural disaster that kills people, but don’t you dare politicize Benghazi.

This must be Obama’s desperate idea of something called ‘leadership’.
