Obama Gets Bent Over Afghanistan Question

By Wyatt Earp | November 16, 2009

obama-tahdahSomeone must have missed their bowl of Happy Flakes this morning.

President Obama became noticably annoyed with a reporter’s question today, probably because she dared to question his judgment on the Afghanistan troop request. A troop request made by General McChrystal that – weeks later – has still not beed addressed. During Obama’s last meeting with the Joint Chiefs, he rejected EVERY single plan that was suggested.

I suppose when you are used to the press treating you like you are a barely teenaged Disney TV star, you get a bit snippy when they ask you tough questions:

President Barack Obama made no effort to conceal his irritation when his press corps used the first question of his maiden Far East trip to ask what was taking him so long on Afghanistan.

Jennifer Loven of The Associated Press had asked: “Can you explain to people watching and criticizing your deliberations what piece of information you’re still lacking to make that call.”

It looks Ms. Jennifer was giving Barry a chance to cover his own a**, but, it was a tough question, and, how freakin’ DARE she question Dear Leader?

“With respect to Afghanistan, Jennifer,” the president scolded, “I don’t think this is a matter of some datum of information that I’m waiting on. … Critics of the process … tend not to be folks who … are directly involved in what’s happening in Afghanistan. Those who are, recognize the gravity of the situation and recognize the importance of us getting this right.” (H/TThe Pirate’s Cove)

In fairness, he doesn’t have the time to worry about Afghnanistan because he is too busy bowing to every leader in the free (and not-so-free) world.

    Oh, don’t forget about his hectic schedule filled with golf outings, daily dinner soirees with celebrities, and weekly jet-setting across the globe with his entourage of people and military aircraft/vehicles costing countless millions for each trip, so he can apologize for our lifestyle of freedom.

    It’s a wonder he has any time to sleep…

    With all the bending and bowing he’s been doing, I am getting him knee pads for Christmas. He needs to spend some time on knees asking God to help him pull the trigger and make the tough decisions that presidents have to make. What a toad!

    Sully – She is now the equivalent of FOXNews.

    GroovyVic – I know the feeling. No one kisses my tushie here anymore, either.

    AJ – The result of someone dumb trying to sound smart.

    John D – Heh, well played.

    Smite – He can sleep when he’s thrown out of office.

    Jon – No kidding, huh?

    MeToo – Maybe he can borrow some from Monica Lewinsky.
