If he had shown up, they would have probably complained that he's stealing the show and not focusing on made up scandals like Benghazi and the IRS thing.
    That's exactly what I was thinking when I first starting reading this thread.

    Remember the call from some to renaming French Fries to 'Freedom Fries'?

    This is at least the third faux outrage thread from the GOP messaging machine over something the French see as no problem.
    I'm just glad that so many responsible GOPs have knocked this garbage down.

    Talk about childish !

    Pathetic j-mac.

    Your dishonest attempts to portray anyone who doesn't outright advocate discrimination and prejudice against muslims as terrorist sympathizers is disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself.

    I asked you a legitimate question: How many world leaders showed up when 3,000 Americans were killed? Your contention is that we're not being honorable even though the US has been fighting the war on terrorism pretty much alone (Canada and the UK being exceptions) for 14 years. I think we've done our part in showing just how we stand on this issue. However, you seem to want to score political points by claiming that this display of rhetoric would have made a difference. Utter nonsense. We've been showing our stance on terrorism for 14 years. If the 'Murica crown doesn't believe it, they can ask the 5,000 US soldiers who died in Iraq how they feel about that.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    It amazes me how often the Conservative argument about Obama is about form rather than substance. Given that we have recovered from the worst recession since the great depression, deficits are narrowing to less than those of his predecessor, the elective wars are winding down, we are returning to full employment; its no wonder that the right is out of substantive arguments. Now they have little to talk about other than the President's golf game, how deeply he bows, to whom he bows and whether he sends the right diplomat to the right function.

    Your shallow arguments against the President are duly noted.
