    And you think thats piratical, to snub everyone else to come back, say a few words, and thats it? The government has organizations to handle situations like this so the president doesn't have to do it personally.

    I feel certain that the bartender in Ireland or his table tennis opponent in England would have forgiven his cancellation if he returned home in a matter of emergency.

    You are over simplifying what Obama was doing in Europe. Borderline disingenuous in fact

    See how easy that was? Obama could have said the same with a phone call.

    And judging from the debts he's piled up I think they know that already.

    Do you really think he had to say this in person?

    And his highly publicized flubs ruined whatever good the trip might have done.
