It’s well-established by now that, with the possible exception of agreeing to being lynched on the White House lawn, there is virtually nothing Pres. Obama could do that Republicans would support. No matter what he does, or does not do, they and their lapdogs in the “liberal media” will reflexively carp and complain.
Their current carp is that Pres. Obama signaled a lack of solidarity with France when he opted not to appear at the unity rally in Paris after the terror attacks there last week. A (poorly punctuated) Fox News headline summed up GOP upsetness: “Obama AWOL in Paris: Message to America, Allies Is We Don’t Care.”
Of course, had the president flown to Paris, Fox et al would be complaining now that he’d wasted money on travel and security to participate in what they would otherwise view as a substance-less, feel-good Kumbaya moment with other socialist world leaders.
