    The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that Obama's schedule today doesn't match his excuses on why he couldn't meet with Bibi Netenyahu. While it looks like he's FINALLY been shamed into actually showing up for the daily briefing, there's nothing to do between lunch and his busy evening of FUNDRAISING. Anybody surprised? I know I'm not. :eusa_whistle:

    Of course, he did manage to squeeze in a 20-minute phone call. But hey... it's not like people who have STATED that they'd like to wipe us and our friend Israel off the map are building a nuclear bomb or anything, right? :rolleyes:

    You know, rather than meet with Netanyahu, how about a meeting with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and answer their questions about what happened in Libya?

    I just don't understand why Obama even WANTS this job. He's never been willing to actually DO the work involved. It's obvious he only enjoys the politics. We need a president who will actually get some work done.

    And watching Corker describe the difficulty in getting information from this administration is just eye-popping. What he's describing is an Executive Branch which has pretty much put itself out of Congress' reach, unaccountable in our system of checks and balances. It's actually scary to contemplate. :eek:

    OUR President is not at the beck and call of Benjamin Netanyahu. If Bibi wants to meet with Obama, let HIM adjust HIS schedule and come to where the President is.

    We can't be seen as letting the Israeli tail wag the US dog.

    IMO what Obama wants is the celebrity that goes with the job. He likes going on The View and hanging with Hollywood. He has spent his term basically voting "present", and we're starting to feel the effects of that. We had 4 embassies flying islamic flags and Obama went to Vegas.
    I hope Sen. Corker continues to press for the truth. It's been 3 weeks and we don't even know for certain how any of our consulate staff died.
    I call my senators often and recommend that others do the same.

    Gotta be the perks. Have you seen the figure for how much the Obama's are spending of our money? $1.4 billion or so, it's outragious.
