    That's what I was told by Republicans and Fox News for three months after the Benghazi attacks. So I guess you'll need to ask them.

    Okay, so he is "responsible to" the American people. In what way? What do you expect him to do during the two or three days he would be away. And isn't attending state funerals of allies, especially one with the status of Margaret Thatcher, an important part of his job?

    Why would the United States possibly miss Barrack Obama?

    For Far Right Wingers like you, He can't win to lose...

    If he goes (after the Boston Bombing, Letters with poison and the explosion in Waco) he's abandoning his presidential responsibilities, and if something bigger came of it and he was in England, you guys would never let him live it down.

    If he doesn't go, due to the Thatcher - Reagan connection which makes Far Right Wing loony toons cream their pants at night he's disrespecting an ally that those same far right wing loons will happily call European Socialists and Nanny State sheeple the sentence proceeding it.

    So all in all, he wasn't going to win with you from day 1 no matter what he does.

    So your opinion is naught.

    He would be able to make decisions while he's on London, but being at the White House puts him closer to the FBI and other federal agencies that are assisting Boston. Decisions might be made faster that way. Ultimately he needs to do what he feels best helps the situations we are currently dealing with.

    I know you really want people to join you in this and just be outraged, but you're not going to get that. You're going to garner the support of the typical partisans that complain about anything that anyone that doesn't agree with them does, and then everyone else is going to be wondering why it irks you so much that while receiving threats from North Korea and right after a domestic bombing he wouldn't go to a funeral for a prime minister that he's never even met.

    If you count out the NK thing and the bombing, then I'd agree, it really would be more appropriate for him to go, but it's not some huge slap in the face if he doesn't.

    No, because you and others on the right would be bitching and whining like babies about the cost of the travel.

    Lol, only proving my point. The people that are so outraged at him not going keep bringing up gun rights, him playing golf, how much he pays in taxes etc...

    You're not pissed that he didn't go to this funeral. If you were you'd argue that and only that. Instead you have to bring up other topics that are really the ones pissing you off. You're merely reaching for yet another thing to complain about. How typical.

    Would they? You don't think they would understand that attending a State funeral in Britain for one of its great leaders is quite different from sharing a golf game with Tiger Woods or traveling the country raising political donations funds at taxpayers expense?

    I believe the American people to be more intelligent than that.

    It's Obama, yes, you and the others on the right WOULD bitch and whine about it like babies if he went. I could see it now "Damn that Obama he just won't stop spending, he's just going to pander he doesn't really care.".
