Obama's priorities are just a touch out of whack. Obama needed some more "Me" time to feed his narcissism


New information reveals President Barack Obama conducted interviews with entertainment magazines and posed for a photo spread last Friday as American embassies burned and 21 countries erupted into anti-American protests.

Instead of spending precious time dealing with the developing crisis in the Mid East and with his foreign policy scheme in a total freefall, on Friday morning, September 14, Obama was giving an interview to the entertainment magazine People en Español and participating in a photo session with photographer Omar Cruz.


Wonder why this big interview and photo shoot was left off the official schedule


This interview was not on his public schedule and was hidden from the public.

Friday, September 14th was the same day that four flag-draped coffins of those killed at the U.S. Libyan embassy arrived at Andrews Air Force base.

The interview came to public attention when individuals who work for the magazine tweeted about their visit after the event was over.

God forbid that Obama ever do his job and actually work out of the Oval Office... Beyonce, JayZ and now Pirates are more important than world affairs (which are part of his job description)

Priorities?? Arrrrrr!!

These things are scheduled in advance. And the POTUS does have an entire government working for him, which means he doesn't need to be hands on at every moment. I am sure he was briefed and involved before and after this interview.

Not to mention that we have a strong policy of not letting terrorists know they can disrupt our way of life.

I think its important to be hands on when we have embassies under siege in 20 nations...Another first for Obama. But... Hands off is what he does best when the topic or crisis does NOT interest him. To face this crisis would mean that he has to come to the reality of the abject failure of his Obama Doctrine... It's much easier for him to get caught up in the glitsy interviews and photo shoots...and celebrity parties with Beyonce and JayZ.. That's the fun part of his job that he actually likes...

I agree here. He was hands on and 'Johnny on the Spot' when a neighborhood shooting happened in Florida. Right there with opinions and commentary to offer the public with swift influence sent down the long chain privately. He's even been known to take serious time from the duties of the most powerful leader in the world to share his wisdom and 'educated positions' on Professional Sports and the fairness of the Basketball ranking system or some such thing.

The State Department is much closer to the War Department than the actual Department of Defense and the President is too busy with rag mag interviews and campaign nonsense to even give the APPEARANCE of 'all hands on deck' while burning the midnight oil to see resolution come without war.

I'll bet neither Kennedy got much sleep over the whole 13 days or so of the proper Cuban Missile Crisis. When Obama heard a United States Ambassador had been killed after a U.S. Diplomatic Compound had been fully over-run in a nation we thought we had some margin of safety in? Hell, it's off to catch some sleep, Tomorrow's a new day of interviews and campaign stops, after all. (I wonder what his appearance schedule vs. what was kept looked like that next day, anyway....?)

Remember that 3am ringing phone? It seems a safe bet here that his voice is rarely to be heard anywhere near it. It's someone else's duty......I just wonder who someone else is supposed to be when he's not in town for a war breaking out all around us?

Well, during the MIDDLE of major foreign crisis and especially where we're losing high ranking or important people, Presidents have been known from time to time to sit in on the Situation Room or, in more active roles sometimes, at the National Command Center elsewhere in the Washington area. After all, this has been on going.....and losing an Embassy OR free standing Embassy consulate compound is a national event of crisis in MOST times and for MOST leaders.

Vietnam is known over the time now for couple major images. One main one there is what is still attributed to being the Embassy Roof. Embassies are national territory as are Consulate compounds. This outright ended Jimmy Carter, Reagan sure wasn't done any favors by losing the ones (plural) in Beirut and Clinton's reaction to and regarding the Africa Embassy bombings was quick and very much the focus of his attention as I've read the reports since.

They really do have a full time job I think it's perfectly reasonable to expect they DO when things of a real unusual nature are going on. PART of that job is as much appearances and comfort of a nation by leadership as actual phone calls placed and order given. Something...two recent leaders seem to have missed entirely and all along, though this one far worse and setting records for tone deaf, IMO.

You know... "hands-on" stuff.
He should have been sitting in the oval office with his hands on something. Like the president is supposed to be doing.


Oh, Breitbart, my favorite RAG!
That is the ONLY source of this BS on the Internet. I'm not saying he didn't have the interview, I'm saying it's BS to make it look like he's doing something wrong by fulfilling an agreement.

Well, according to the OP and I (and anyone with common sense) his priorities are all out of whack. But to Obama's target audience doing magazine interviews, going on Letterman, and partying with Jay-Z make him out to be a rock star and they love it. He's so "cool" and "hip". And don't even start to criticize his excessive golfing, he's allowed to do what he wants on the weekends!

Well, Maybe changing his tune from blaming a film maker,or "spontaneous riots" to taking the stance, that Intelligent Officials. were taking, that this WAS a terrorist act. That would have been a great start. Oh never mind. Hes changed his tune.........again.

Obama - Friday, Sept 14th



On, Friday, Sept 14, Obama attended the ceremony of the receiving of the flag-draped coffins of the four Americans killed in the Libya attack. The ceremony was at at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. When he should have had his hands on something! GRRRR! He's a socialist!





Four flag-draped coffins bearing the bodies of the Americans killed in Libya arrived in the United States on Friday for their final journey home as President Obama said the victims “laid down their lives for us all” and vowed to honor their memory by never retreating from the world.

Uhhhh? You got me!! Oh wait.... No you didn't. Breitbart never said he missed the ceremony. Obama spent his morning in hair and make up for his interview and photo shoot!!

Maybe you didn't read the article or you just read what you wanted to read in my OP.... Something was clearly lost in your personal interpretation.


In fact if you actually read the article you would see the clearly embedded link that specifically talked about the ceremony for the fallen Americans who were victims of a terror attack with Obama in attendance. No lies!!

Sorry to disappoint you BH. But you are wrong....

Hands on the pulse of our nation would be a start. Can't tell if someone is dead or dying a slow death without taking a pulse...

He could also be analyzing the failures of his Obama Doctrine and wondering where he went wrong with his 2009 apology and bowing tour... He even practiced his Arabic accent for that tour... FAIL!! Time to wake up out of your coma BH...

My point is that he WAS doing his job on that day. His hands were ON.

Oh is that your point????

Same point in your private message indicating that somehow Breitbart failed to do their research??

You are wrong. I pointed to the clearly embedded link regarding the ceremony. Clearly Breitbart did their research and you didn't.

I'm glad Obama was able to squeeze this ceremony into his busy entertainment schedule. After the final salute of the coffins it was off the big party. Way to end such a solemn day.


President Barack Obama is collecting $1.4 million for his campaign and the Democratic Party at a fundraising event in Washington.

The event Friday night, at a private residence in the nation's capital, attracted 35 donors who each contributed $40,000.

The event capped a day marked by the return of the remains of four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. The president attended the ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base.

Look, I've heard that Obama can also walk and chew gum at the same time. AND scratch his head, too! He's obviously a socialist!

Bored now...

You know, I think that Obama is secretly is enjoying the anti American protests,
how telling that this Anti American sentiment and rage against America is happening under his Presidency.

This is just another proof, we really dont know Obama, and we dont know who he is.

What we do know is he has it out from America, and if he has his way
he will finish the demolition job he started 4 year ago.
