Pimp with a Limp: Obama Skipped Intel Briefings Week Before Attacks

The last time the Wonder Kid who personally got Bin Laden attended an intelligence briefing was on September 5th. Since then it’s been all campaign events and softball questions from media lapdogs
Obama found time to do multiple radio interviews, discuss Nicky Minaj, Hip Hop music and the Buccaneers. On September 11, this is what Obama was doing instead of attending a national intelligence briefing.
Fact: When “Pimp with the Limp” DJ Laz talks NFL with the President of the United States, we’re listening. Obama barely had managed to drop jarring references to Pitbull and Flo-Rida before DJ Laz told the President he was wearing a Miami Dolphins jersey.
“You’ve got to start with that Dolphins thing,” Obama said. “Did you see that HBO special ‘Hard Knocks’? That’s a pretty good show. As I recall, you guys didn’t win any … in the preseason.”
This is Obama’s “Pet Goat” moment. Except Obama wasn’t reassuring frightened children while intelligence data was being collected, he was blowing off national security briefings to talk about his favorite rappers.
“Pimp with a Limp” is what Obama thought was more important than being briefed on critical national security threats. He made his choice and people died. There should be some political accountability for that.
