But there were rallies all over the country. Bush himself spoke at ground zero. To a crowd.
Any number of world leaders could've come down to them, but in many cases they did not and that's not a problem to me.
Obama misses out on a rally not a problem to me. We have pledged our support to France. Just as France provided military support to us. Really there is no real case that we have abandoned each other as allies, it seems more as if the political right in this country is upset that Obama missed a photo op, and if Obama went and did the littlest thing wrong then the American political right would be after him for hogging the show. Can't win for losing
