"It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to." - W. C. Fields
There were American sympathy rallies as I understand it. Trafalgar square in London was filled, and there were marches in several other countries. The 1.5 million in Paris was matched through various cities in the rest of France.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!
"You ain't no Muslim bruv!"
Mitt or Jeb was supposed to represent the US
In what role?
There were 44 heads of state in that march.....
Dont you think some of those countries were concerned about security also?
But Obama or Biden not representing is akin to a civil rights march in the south in 1967, and MLK is nowhere to be found
Somehow...i cant see that happening
This was a march about freedom.....
Maybe our country who is supposed to be the leader of the "free" world could have sent one of two heads of state?

I voted yes but only because when he's out of the country for photo ops, he's not doing any more damage to the US. I'd just as soon he stay on the golf course for the next 2 years. As far as the actual event, meh. Photo op time and nothing of any substance comes from that sort of thing. It certainly doesn't intimidate the terrorists.
Why was Holder even there? My guess is that Obama wants to ignore terrorism, specifically Islamic terrorism, and view actions by Islamic terrorists as isolated acts of violence, crimes to be dealt with by police (as long as the perpetrators aren't black anyway). He wants Justice to deal with it and that it not be considered a homeland security or international problem.
1.He is America's president, not France's.
2.These monsters murder innocent people all the time in the name of Islam and Obama did not stand with any of the other victims of those monsters.
3.Anytime the president goes anywhere it is not just the president going somewhere.It is his security, his assistants and other people that add to the cost.
4.Obama said "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam",so his sympathies do not lie with Charlie.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."

It doesn't matter who went and didn't. Some would hate on him for going, and most of the same people are hating him for not going. Haters gonna hate.
