    True. Everyone else made the trip over to France.

    Why do you think it is shameful? The Europeans were giving a demonstration that many might think was one of supremacist racism. I mean they were all there to protest the killing of 7 or so Europeans while the same day muslim terrorists seem to have murdered 2.000 Black Africans, who got very little mention.

    Obama is an American President. He will be hammered no matter. And I say that and do not even like him.

    Comparing a presidential assassination to the death of a cartoonist is a bit of a stretch.

    This can't be a serious question? You think what happened in France is no big deal?

    I only brought it up to highlight that France has always been by our side. Whether in wars, or at times of loss like this, they have been here, IN PERSON.....So, why didn't Obama go? What was so pressing that kept him here?

    What was so pressing that Obama, personally, needed to go to France? We entered WWII without a presidential trip to France to kick it off and are already into a global war on terror to a much larger extent than France will ever be.

    He was probably too busy thinking of more ways to turn the United States into a communist country, where everyone is Muslim, but also gay sex is common, and we all pay 75% taxes. That's where I think Obama was.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
