I assume that the folks that brief President Obama were telling him things that he did not want to hear, so he felt compelled to stop listening. Essentially a metaphor for his Presidency.

That is a characteristic trait of totalitarian dictators, who often enjoy the same level of success.

The last few weeks have produced many intriguing political moments, but none as shocking as the revelation that President Obama has been absent from the vast majority of his daily intelligence briefings.

According to a study by the Government Accountability Institute, Obama failed to attend a single Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) in the week leading up to the recent anniversary of 9/11 and the chaos that erupted in the Arab world. The mere fact that we were approaching 9/11 was a crucial enough reason to attend not one but all the briefings. President Obama attended none.
