RUSH: This is a disgrace, folks, disguised as performing the duties of commander-in-chief. The only question is: Who looks worse in this, the president or Politico? But the Politico…
You people at the Politico, you know we love you here. You know that we love you, but you gotta be embarrassed publishing this! It’s on their Politico 44 Blog (Obama being president 44): “While eating at an ‘official dinner’ with Chile’s president Monday night, President Obama was updated throughout the meal on the downed American plane in Libya, the White House says. The national security adviser Tom Donilon told Obama of the plane at 7:45 p.m., before the dinner, and kept Obama updated during the ride, telling him that the United States was ‘in touch with the pilots on the ground,’ White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Tuesday.
“Donilon stayed at the hotel and ‘provided two updates’ during the dinner to chief of staff Bill Daley, who ‘relayed to the president about the ongoing recovery efforts,’ Carney said on Air Force One. When Obama returned to the hotel, he spoke with Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and learned that the pilots were safe. The intersection of a formal dinner in Chile and an effort to stay updated on the pilots’ safety reflects both the multi-tasking nature of Obama and the consequences of his decision to go on his five-day Latin America trip right after ordering an attack on Libya.”
Did you realize he was that capable, folks? Are you not dazzled by this unique talent to be informed (while dining!) of the fate of American fire pilots? This intersection reflects “the multitasking nature of Obama.” Do you think…? I got a pretty observant note from a friend. “Do you think Bush reading to the kids in the classroom on 9/11 would have ever been praised for his ability to multitask?” Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee.
