Apparently, No One Asked Most Powerful Man In World If He Wanted To Attend Paris Anti-Terrorism March

Obama’s aides were apparently caught off guard or something

White House was out of step as Paris march grew
Aides were caught off-guard by Sunday’s event.

Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?

Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.

Here’s the money line

White House aides were so caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention that they hadn’t even asked President Barack Obama if he wanted to go.

Why is it even necessary to ask the POTUS if he wants to attend what was shaping up to be one of the biggest anti-terrorism marches of all time in the wake of the attacks? Especially when he had absolutely nothing on his weekend schedule. Nor did VP Joe Biden have any scheduled events.

This just goes to show how out of step, incompetent, and tone deaf this administration and its leader are. It is cute how Politico attempts to blame White House staff, rather than the man holding the most powerful position in the world.

BTW, the talking point about the Secret Service having concern about attendance is a bunch of mule fritters, since they were never asked by the White House.

A second BTW, Salon makes a good point (shockingly) about everyone ignoring the suicide bombing in Tripoli over the Paris terrorism, and that all lives matter. Interesting, because they, like most lefties, had a big problem with #AllLivesMatter at the time. Their point is important, though. During the month of December there were 233 jihad attacks, killing 2497 and wounding 2225. An Islamic cleric has stated that the Pope should be killed for insulting Islam. 3 Muslims were arrested in Canada. Hundreds of Tanzanian girls were in hiding from genital mutilation. A Saudi cleric has declared snowmen as anti-Islamic.

    Did any elected conservatives attend ?
    Bill O’Reilly is still selling his anti France bumper stickers
    A country which McCain described as ” an aging film actress”
    Does this newfound empathy for France mean no more freedom fries ?
    Fre speech is important Teach thanks for your support of Occupy Wall Street

  2. As you lefties were fond of point out when Bush was POTUS, “Who’s president NOW?”

    Lefties, when they have no argument, fall back on the juvenile “you did it too” and “you did it first” — hoping for a did not, did to, did not, did to, conversation. Lefties cannot address the issue at hand.
