Obama Ne est Pas Charlie

It seems a lot of people are both confused and offended by Obama’s refusal to go to the Unity March in Paris and to send any official of note – not even his boy, Holder, who was already in Paris – to do so in his stead.

Obama Ne est Pas Charlie

Both the confusion and the outrage seem either misplaced or manufactured to me. Why would anyone expect or think it even marginally appropriate to have the person who said to the world, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” in response to the Muslim’s Benghazi massacre attend a unity march in solidarity against those who completed agreed with his words and ensured that the future did not belong to the Charlie Hebdo staff?

Frankly, I could think of no greater farce and no greater dishonor than allowing Obama or any of his regime to attend such an event.
