President Obama must think he's too smart to have to attend Daily Intelligence Meetings? or "What Me Worry?"

President Obama is touting his foreign policy experience on the campaign trail, but startling new statistics suggest that national security has not necessarily been the personal priority the president makes it out to be. It turns out that more than half the time, the commander in chief does not attend his daily intelligence meeting.
The Government Accountability Institute, a new conservative investigative research organization, examined President Obama’s schedule from the day he took office until mid-June 2012, to see how often he attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) — the meeting at which he is briefed on the most critical intelligence threats to the country. During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times — or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent — falling to just over 38 percent. By contrast, Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.

Nice one, Bosman. I'm so glad his post convention bounce appears to be ending.

Oh, and you made a little mistake in the title there. Should be too instead of to. I wouldn't normally say anything but someone might take a pot shot over it since the next word is "intelligent." Feel free to delete this comment.
