    Scathing article and so should it be. Obama, what, shrugged the bloody terrorist attack off and stayed put? Probably didn’t want to go to great lengths, as last time, with the effort it takes to say anything but the word, "Islamic Terrorism."

    “All three GOP candidates slammed President Obama for staying put in Cuba - and watching baseball - in the wake of the Brussels attacks”

    So should President Obama have gone back home to read My Pet Goat instead?

    The President did what Presidents do. He showed them they can't disrupt our daily lives.

    I think he made the right choice, not like he would have done anything useful anyways, he most likely would make things worse. I think Cuba and the Iran deal are the only points I will give to Obama. He is at only -10 right now IMO.

    I'd like him to just stay there for the next 9 months. Too much to ask?

    Obama has got to be real ticked that the attack stole his thunder. Not unlike BLM's loss of airPlay over France. But all people will remember is that Obama went to Cuba and stayed to watch baseball the night of the Brussels tragedy.

    He's been doing that for years in office. It hasn't helped.

    What a sick joke Obama is.

    Not one mention of Islamic Terrorism.
    --- Post Merged, Mar 22, 2016 ---
    Yeah?

    What a good thing Churchill decided not to let Hitler disrupt his life, so he could let Hitler eradicate the Jews in peace.

    Oh, wait...

    He was too busy slurping ice cream at a baseball game with a fellow dictator to bother with the terrorist attack.

    1 black kid gets shot (tragically) and Obama drops everything and gets involved. 30+ German Crackers get blown up and he mentions it for 30 seconds during the 7th inning stretch.

    The guy is a jerk. Plain and simple.

    Not sure he can do all 3 at the same time.
    There is nothing for him to do really. I have no problem with his inaction

    Bush /Obama/Hillary /chenney & 90% f congress belong in jail. I'm fiscally conservative & socially liberal. Love the 2nd and don't smoke/drink or do drugs and really ***** care if they are legalized. There's not much to figure out , I love freedom

    Somehow I don't think you know what either mean.
    --- Post Merged, Mar 22, 2016 ---
    So what was Obama supposed to do. Rush home, hold a press conference and say bad terrorists?

    Of course. This is the crowd who stop at nothing to vilify Obama into the "damned if you do, damned if you don't" corner, and can't get or see past their own prejudices to get the big picture. No fault of Obama here, if those here, OP included, can't free their mind.

    No insult intended toward him, but it says a lot from the conservative crowd here if @jkcerda can see this but they can't.

    Attack was not in our soil. As post 18 stated, what was he supposed to do?

    Exactly. But like I said, some people are compelled to blame and vilify Obama for doing exactly what Bush told us to do shortly after 9/11: go about our lives.

    It's as if Assad could sneeze and they'd blame Obama for the wind blowing it in Europe's direction.

    Shamelessly stolen from twitter:

    According to the media and GOP, Obama is responsible for governing Europe. He doesn't have the right to appoint a SCOTUS justice though.​

    Yes.

    Here's a man that took immediate action on Clock Boy with a much publicized and ballyhooed White House invite, but scores killed and Obama is ordering some hot dogs from the ballpark vendor.

    I guess to be expected after Obama's posturing upon the San Bernardino tragedy on American soil. Or Obama's ignoring ISIS' rise as they took land as though an Islamist terrorist blitzkreig. I don't know, was it football then? Or basketball?
    --- Post Merged, Mar 23, 2016 ---

    Yes. Go about our lives. While Bush the leader remained steadfast at work. BIG difference.

    Did clock boy kill anyone on American soil?

    Last I checked Obama was President of the United States. Not Brussels. There was nothing he could do even if he was in Washington but provide some lip service. If this happened in New York and Obama stayed to watch a baseball game, sure complain and raise hell about it. This is not our fight unless they ask us for help.
