It's not Obama's fault. (Nothing is.) You see, after 3 1/2 years, his national security advisers apparently still haven't learned not to schedule the daily briefings at 1pm. That is the time (weather permitting) that The One tees off. If it rained as much in DC as it does in, say, Seattle, the President would surely attend more briefings. It's the weather's fault that he doesn't.
