Middle East Crisis? Obama Has More Important Things To Do.
Friday was a terrible day for America. By the end of the day, anti-American actions were taking place in 21 countries, and more American lives were lost to radical Islamists. The entire week left us wondering how much worse it could possibly get.

Apparently, President Obama did have some very important plans on Friday, and these plans were not derailed by the attacks against our embassies and consulates in the Middle East. While buildings burned and people died, Barack Obama was getting interviewed by a Hispanic entertainment magazine and having his picture taken.
But instead, before heading to the ceremony, he spent his valuable time doing a magazine interview. Notice there is no mention of this interview on the official schedule. His schedule did reveal that he met with the U.S. Olympic teams and attended a $40,000 per plate fundraiser at a private home in Washington, D.C..
Is this what you expect of the President of the United States during a crisis?
