Obama’s Optics-problem Leaves U.S. Blind

London’s Daily Mail isn’t shy about criticizing the Obama Administration with headlines reading, “America snubs historic Paris rally: Holder was there but skipped out early, Kerry was in India, Obama and Biden just stayed home.”

This comes after Obama failed to attend the Paris Unity March against Islamic terrorism, instead to spending his afternoon watching the NFL playoff game.  He didn’t even send Vice President Joe Biden, who was at home in Delaware for the weekend with nothing scheduled.

At least, U.S. Ambassador to France Jane Hartley was in the march, as was assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.

And while Nuland’s boss, Secretary of State John Kerry plans to visit Paris later this week, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder was already in there for security meetings. He didn’t attend the march — but had time for news interviews.

In two separate instances, Holder refused to say that the U.S. is at war with radical Islam. Instead, Holder, who spoke to both NBC’s Chuck Todd and ABC’s George Stephanopolous with the same question, said that the U.S is at war with “terrorists” who “corrupt the Islamic faith” or use a “corrupted version of Islam.”

The Obama administration is completely blind when it comes to so-call ‘optics,’ or they jus’ don’t care.
