Again, the members of the current executive administration have embarrassed our country. Even they admit they “blew it.”
Unfortunately, their admission came too late, along with their willingness to take their place next to most of the leaders of the rest of the free countries in the world making a statement against Islamic terrorism. The excuse that “security was an issue” just did not fly.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was there, and if the leader of Israel could make it, so should have President Obama. Not Vice President Joe Biden, not Secretary of State John Kerry, not Attorney General Eric Holder, just President Obama.
Of course, I’m not surprised in this failure. Our president has shown repeatedly that he just does not understand what his job is really all about. He likes hanging out with the Hollywood elite and taking all of those vacations, but when it is time to be a leader not so much.
Maybe if the rally in France was on a golf course instead of a square in Paris he might have made the effort. George W. Bush would have been there in the front row.
