Obama skips national security meeting on Ukraine: What, another happy hour?
President: Obama‘s national security team met Saturday on the escalating crisis in: Ukraine, minus one key player – the president.
Time Magazine political reporter: Zeke Miller: posted a tweet suggesting that Obama skipped the meeting and opted instead to be “briefed” by: his: national security adviser,: Susan Rice,: according to The Weekly Standard.
The tweet followed an email from a: White House: official who said the team met to discuss the situation in Ukraine. Miller tweeted:
Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team.

It’s bad enough that Obama was: calling for happy hour: as Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine on Friday, but to skip a national: security meeting: in the face of the “uncontested arrival,” as U.S. officials are calling the action, is pretty bold.
A Republican president would be crucified by the media for such behavior, but a different standard seems to apply to Obama, who skipped his daily intelligence briefing the morning after the terrorist attack in Benghazi to go to aLas Vegas: fundraiser.
To be fair, the president did have “a testy exchange” Saturday in a 90-minute phone call with Russian President: Vladimir Putin, according to the Washington Post.
As expected, Twitter users did not hold back in their reaction to Miller’s tweet, saying:
.@ZekeJMiller did susan rice blame video? Or the talking points

@ZekeJMiller Obama didn't attend the meeting on Ukraine situation! Beyond irresponsible! Was he on the golf course, at happy hour, Vegas?
