    No surprise the incompetent fool probably can’t read.

    Ah, LIsa will jump on any fraud, and do Rush’s bidding to attempt to make it fact.

    Another toon from a Texas Einstinyan where the dropout rate is falling but still 29% are still falling through their cracks, lowest rate in the state in 25 years.
    As to the toon obviously the toonist never graduated beyond the school of conservative rhetoric, still getting their spoon fed “informed” education from the rights archives of confusion and creative synosysim.

    “No surprise the incompetent fool probably can’t read.”

    .
    - That’s a mean thing to say about Ms. Benson, even if accurate.

    Our lazy old President, foregoing all that RepubliCon “help”. And RepubliCons have been so-o-o-o interested in ‘helping’ too, cutting education, State and Health Department funding, ignoring infrastructure projects. No WONDER the President’s – supposedly – got time to read Lisa’s ‘funnies’.

    So instead of demonizing the cartoonist, can anyone show me a link to what she is referring? Even if this is a falsehood, it’s usually based on something in reality.

    Since you are accessing the Internet, you could search for “Obama Daily Briefings” yourself.
    -
    The reality is that president Obama READS the report and has in-person briefings when needed. Bush 43 liked to have the reports read to him. One BIG downside to Bush’s style is that the oral report can be slanted by the ones doing the briefing, which tend to be war hawks.

    As I recall, it was Bush who skipped the important daily briefings. “You’ve covered your ass now.” Obama isn’t always in the actual office, but he does get the briefings.

    I was just more asking if there was some story about a breaking scandal that I didn’t know about. Otherwise, this toon is old and recycled, falling flat. Meh.

    By Peter Foster, Washington9:03PM BST 29 Sep 2014
    President Barack Obama was facing a fierce political backlash on Monday night after he blamed US intelligence chiefs for being caught by surprise by the sudden rise of the Islamic State (Isil) terror movement in Iraq and Syria.
    In a highly unusual step, Mr Obama singled out James Clapper, his director of national intelligence, when asked by a television interviewer whether he had underestimated the threat posed by Isil after its fighters burst across the Syrian border into Iraq this summer, capturing large swathes of territory.
    “I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Mr Obama told CBS News.
    The president’s apparent unwillingness to take responsibility for his administration’s failure to foresee the threat was met with disbelief by both policy experts and senior Republicans, who have long warned of the risks of ceding strategic space to the jihadists in Syria.

    Good work, Mz Benson, on keeping up on accurate reporting about O and his rejection of Intel Briefings!
    -
    At news site www.breitbart.com url, 9/29/14 by Wynton Hall, “A new Government Accountability Institute report reveals that Pres. Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intel briefings (PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through 9/29/14.”
    -
    This article also reports that an Obama security staffer “said the president’s PDBs have contained detailed threat warnings about the Islamic State dating back to before the 2012 presidential election.”
    -
    Breitbart News reported at the time, the White House’s very own presidential calendar revealed Obama had not received his daily intel briefing in the 5 consecutive days leading up to the Benghazi attacks..where Ambass. Stevens and 3 American staffers were murdered, in a terrorist attack. I remember that other foreign staffs had been evacuated from Libyan quarters due to intel of a buildup of terrorist activity.
    -
    This administration will not have a legacy of approval or resptect if history is written by honest authors. No wonder in 9/14 the pollings show that Americans do not feel safe under this PC regime.

    Nope, it is just some recycled stuff from Lisa.
    Maybe she’ll do a golf ’toon tomorrow.

    @disgustedamerican

    Pres. Obama reads the PDBs every day. There is a morning meeting where details can be covered, but it isn’t specifically labelled as PDB meeting which is where the breitbart BS came from.
    Bush had a daily meeting where he had the details read to him. As I stated in an earlier post, this allows the “reader” to slant the details, generally in a pro-war direction.
