Despite Barack Obama's assertion that his intelligence agencies gave him bad information about ISIS (despite those same agencies giving clear testimony about the growing danger in public forums), there now seems to be a new explanation about why the president didn't get the message: he doesn't bother to attend most of his daily intelligence briefings.
According to the Government Accountability Institute, Barry skips nearly 60% of such critical national security briefings. However, in fairness we should point out that he does have a 100% attendance rate for fundraisers, tee times, and hilarious U.N. "roasts" of the United States.
The sad thing is, the president's serial truancy in these threat assessment meetings is neither new nor news. You can read virtually the same story from 2012, back when Obama could still have been denied a second term.
And radical Islamic terror could have been denied a second coming.
BONUS: THEY'RE SO CUTE AT THAT AGE
BREAKING NEWS: EBOLA IN TEXAS
Ironically, just after creating the cartoon in which Hillary is pooping in her pants, Hope n' Change received news that pretty much has us pooping in our pants: Ebola has arrived in North Texas, only minutes away from our editorial offices.
Even better, it seems that "patient zero" may have been knocking around the area in a contagious condition for a couple of days before being admitted to a hospital. Which means there may be an untold number of other folks incubating and/or spreading the virus in the area.
Frankly, Hope n' Change wasn't too freaked out about this until CDC Director Tom Frieden took to the airwaves with hinky behavior and weirdly scripted remarks intended to assure us that "there's no need to panic" in about the least believable way possible.
His creepiest statement was that the whole world is involved in the fight against Ebola because "we all share the same air." However, Ebola has never been transmissible through the air - unless Frieden knows something about this particular strain that he didn't mean to share on national television.
In any event, America's hemorrhagic roller-coaster ride is officially underway. And we're betting it's going to be a very bumpy ride.
BUT WAIT - THERE'S MORE!
