    Should Obama Have Attended Je Suis Charlie March?

    Pretty Straightforward question. Do you think he should have and you can discuss why you think he didn't below explaining your answer.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Given the security that would have had to have been in place, not attending was a good call. He should make it clear that he supports the movement, as I'm sure he must.

    Had he gone, his opponents would have been ranting about the cost of his "vacation to Paris" no doubt. It would have taken a major effort.

    I would agree, but I think the bigger domestic issue would have been the critiqued non-public appearance of senior administration officials at the D.C. march. I think that was an unfortunate oversight.

    That being said, I often find such criticisms rather unimportant.

    He'll do what he wants, but I don't feel that it serves any purpose except to try and regain some political points.

    He should have his daughter change her avatar to Je Suis Charlie on whatever account it is that she is supposedly sending selfies to rappers on (I saw the headline but did not read the article on it).

    Absolutely-he let down the US and the world by not showing up, in fact he didn't even send Holder (who was in Paris), Kerry, or Biden.

    He just sent a powerful message to the American people, our allies, and our enemies.

    Obama the Betrayer™ basically told ISIS to plant a flag in the White House by not attending, while giving Jews a wedgie.

    And yet he was front and center to hit on chicks at the Nelson Mandela funeral. Maybe he went because Mandela was a communist?

    Maybe it's because Obama is the Whore of Babylon.

    I think its because he's long on rhetoric but short on substantive action.
