Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Barack Obama & Eric Holder for Failing to Attend Paris March: “Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”
”Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”
From The Daily Show, Jon Stewart rips President Barack Obama for not attending the ‘Unity March’ in Paris, France on Sunday as world leader came together for freedom and liberty and against radical Islam. Stewart mocked Obama saying, how could Obama not be there, look how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized to.” One would think that alone would have had Obama running to the event.
“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”
(The money comments begin around the 4:15 minute mark of the video)
Stewart, visibly perplexed, questioned how the leader of the free world failed to participate in the march.
“How can Obama not be there?” he asked. “Look at how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized. He missed an opportunity.”
“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”
Stewart then slammed Attorney General Eric Holder for not representing the U.S. at the march, even though he was in Paris as it took place.
“What the f***?” the comedian said. “Eric Holder, you were in France! In Paris! At the time of the march and were like, ‘eh’?”
“Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally and the U.S. was a no-show? It’s going to take a lot to make up for this.”
Obama White House Says, It’s Fair to Say We Were Wrong on Paris Unity Rally … WH Caught with Its Pants Down or Purposeful Decision?
Sorry Barack Obama, this is a little bigger than, oh sorry, my bad.
The Obama administration is in full spin CYA mode in the wake of the outrage of U.S President failing to attend the “Unity” march with numerous other world leaders as he opted to stay home instead and watch football. Quick, get the PR machine out there to lie to the media and people. White House spokesman Josh Earnest did his best to spin his way through the disastrous visuals and symbolism of Barack Obama or any other high level US leader being present for the march against radical Islam. White House spokesman Earnest said, “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.” What ever do you mean, you mean sending no one of any importance what-so-ever was wrong? None of you could have figured this out in advance? Sorry, but that is BS. Obama told us all in the past that Bin Laden was dead and terrorism was on the run. To suddenly acknowledge that France just had their own 9-11 moment would go against Obama’s down playing of terrorism.
Barack Obama could not be reached for comment he was too busy
The White House said Monday that it made a mistake in not sending President Obama or a top administration official to the weekend unity march in Paris, a rare concession that it had botched the optics of an important international event.
“It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his briefing, which was dominated by questions about the march.
“We want to send a clear message, even in a symbolic context like this one, that the American people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies in France,” said Earnest. “And sending a high-level, highly visible senior administration official with a high profile to that march would have done that.”
He dodged questions about who was responsible for the decision to have the U.S. be represented by the U.S. ambassador to France, saying only that it was a staff-level call the president was not personally involved in.
So, some how Barack Obama and his minions could see the importance of sending people to Ferguson, Missouri and to the funeral of an individual who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, but they could not see the importance of supporting one of America’s greatest allies in France and 40 world leaders coming together in a show of solidarity against radical Islam.
The JV Presidency.
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.
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.

President Barack Obama Snubs World Leaders and France, Skips Historic Unity Rally in Paris to Watch Football
UM, THIS IS WHAT LEADING FROM BEHIND LOOKS LIKE AMERICA, OR ZERO LEADERSHIP WHATSOEVER.
It is one thing for Barack Obama to treat “We the People” with such disdain, but for the International man of mystery and rock star to snub Europe like this is breathtaking. Barack Obama skipped the historic “Unity” rally in Paris, France that was attended by 50 other world leaders. Obama did not send VP Joe Biden or Secretary of State Kerry either. But wait until you hear what important things Obama was doing instead of attending a rally against radical Islam and in support of our allies … Obama was watching football.
Barack Obama Missing … Where’s Waldo?
According to an administration official, President Obama spent part of his Sunday afternoon watching a National Football League game on television. Both games were broadcast hours after the march.
Heads of state from every major European power, including British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, joined French President Francois Hollande.
But the U.S.A. was M.I.A.
You fools thought I actually believe I care about you and your war on radical Islam, I’m watching me some football.
Obama and Vice President Joe Biden remained in Washington, despite having no events on their public schedules Sunday. Secretary of State John Kerry was a world away in India, on a pre-planned trip.
Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris for a terrorism summit held on the march’s sidelines, but he slipped away and made appearances on four American morning television talk shows just as the incredible rally was starting.
The US was represented at the march only by Jane Hartley, the American ambassador to France who is unrecognizable to most Americans, let alone the rest of the world.
Now the world knows what we Americans have none for years, Obama is the worst president in American history.
Attorney General Eric Holder Cannot Simply Say “YES” When Asked Asked by Todd & Stephanopoulos Whether the US is at War with Radical Islam
AND YOU WONDER WHY BARACK OBAMA AND JOE WERE NOT PRESENT, AND HOLDER DIDN’T MARCH IN UNISON WITH THE OTHER WORLD LEADERS IN PARIS, THEY DON’T BELIEVE THERE IS A WAR ON RADICAL ISLAM.
America, i hope you are proud of yourselves, this is the administration you not only elected once, but you did so again for a second time. This Sunday morning on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ and ABC’s ‘This Week,’ Attorney General Eric Holder was asked by both Chuck Todd and George Stephanopoulos whether the United States was at war with radical Islam. Holder could not find it in himself to simply say, yes we are. UNREAL. These people will be the death of us all. HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU DEFEAT THE ENEMY, IF YOU CANNOT DEFINE THE ENEMY!
Even France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that France was at war with radical Islam. However, this sorry bunch of SOB’s in the Obama administrations cannot bring themselves to say it … RADICAL ISLAM.
From NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ Eric Holder cannot say that the United States is at war with radical Islam.
Chuck Todd: the French Prime Minister today declared the France is at war with radical Islam. Would you say the United States is at war with radical Islam?
Eric Holder: Well, I would say we are at war with terrorists who commit these heinous acts. Who use Islam. Who use a corrupted version of Islam to justify their actions. We are bound and determined to hold them accountable. To find which ways we prevent young people who become attracted to this radical ideology, becoming members of these groups and perpetrating these heinous acts.
Eric Holder also made similar comments when asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos the same question. (Transcript)
STEPHANOPOULOS: The French prime minister said yesterday that France is at war with radical Islam. Is the U.S. At war with radical Islam?
HOLDER: Well, I certainly think that we are at war with those who would commit terrorist attacks and who would corrupt the Islamic faith in the way that they do, to try to justify their terrorist actions.
So that’s who we are at — at war with. And we are determined to take the fight to them to prevent them from engaging in these kinds of activities.
Our president has indicated that we will be calling, on February the 18th, a summit, so that we deal with better ways in which we can counter violent extremism and really get at the core, come up with ways in which we prevent people from adhering to, being attracted to this terrorist ideology.
50 World Leaders at Paris Anti-Terror, Day of Unity Rally, But No President Barack Obama, VP Joe Biden or Sec. of State John Kerry
MILLIONS GATHER AGAINST TERRORISM: Noticeable absent from the worlds show of unity against radical Muslim terrorism was President Barack Hussein Obama …
Nearly four million turned out across France today for unity rallies and nearly one million in Paris, the largest number of people turned out in Paris France since the liberation of Paris from Nazi, Germany during World War II. The more than 50 world leaders showed at the Paris march for the “Day of Unity” that included those from Germany, Italy, Poland, Israel, the UK, Ireland, Mali, the UN Secretary General, the US Secretary of State and the Palestinian President. The world leaders and millions of people paid their honor and respects to the 17 individuals who were killed by radical-Muslim terrorist in the last few days at Charlie Hebdo and a Paris kosher deli. Yesterday, the France’s Prime Minister declared war with radical Islam.
Vive la liberté!!!

Charles Krauthammer: The Terror Attack in France on Charlie Charlie Hebdo Shows We Can Not Retain The Ambivalence Obama Has Taken Toward Nature Of War
Last night on Special Report syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer called the war on terror under President Barack Obama for what it has been, a non-seriousness of the big picture in a war against those that want to destroy us and our way of life in jihad. This is not to be conducted as a police action, it is war.
“And we have a president and these events remind us that you cannot retain this ambivalence about the seriousness of this and the nature of the war.”
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Obama said we stand with the people of Ukraine. He said that we stand with the people of Syria. You know, they did the hashtag and the tweet of the girls in Nigeria. It’s nice to say all these things but if you are — by default or whatever reason — the leader of the free world as we have been you’re supposed to do something if you say that.
Look, I don’t think you want to blame anybody. I just think that these events are a reminder, and it’s not so much the attack on Australia, which was a semi-lunatic, who was sort of, you know, a deranged — there are deranged people around the world who will latch on to this ideology and abuse it. These guys did not look like deranged wanderers trying to discover a purpose or an identity. These are people who are killers, trained — the way they executed that cop laying on the street.
This is a war against an enemy and these are the elements of it. And we have a president and these events remind us that you cannot retain this ambivalence about the seriousness of this and the nature of the war. And that’s what worries me because as long as we think that we can deal with this like law enforcement we are going to be continuing to be exposed to a threat that could hit us as easily as it hits them and it deprives us of the weapons like interrogation, like intelligence, like human intelligence that Obama is depriving us of and has been for six years.

WAPO-ABC News Poll: Obama Hits News Low with 40% Approval Rating … Only 33% Among Independents … Democrats in Serious Trouble
HEY AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?
According to the most recent WAPO-ABC News poll, Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with an approval rating at 40% and a 51% disapproval. Actually, it is curious as to why it is not even lower. Among Independents, Obama only has a 33% approval. Under Obama’s watch, everything is a colossal disaster. Nothing is going good in the United States or around the world.
The US economy is a floundering mess, illegal immigration, ISIS is on the rise and now we have the October surprise of Ebola in the United States. Barack Obama polls poorly on all major political issues as we are week’s ahead of the November midterm elections and early voting has begun in some states.
Can you say EPIC FAILURE!!!
Heading into the final weeks of the midterm campaign, the political landscape continues to tilt in favor of the Republican Party, with President Obama’s overall approval rating at the lowest level of his presidency and GOP voters signaling greater likelihood than Democrats that they will cast ballots, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Americans are looking to November and beyond with dissatisfaction about the state of the country and the political leadership in Washington. Two-thirds say the country is seriously off-track. And while more than 6 in 10 say the president lacks a clear plan for governing, …
See all polling data HERE.
The overall job approval rating average is not much better for Obama. According to RCP, only 42.0% approve, while 52.4% disapprove.
Barack Obama and his political party are heading into the midterm elections in trouble. The president’s 40 percent job approval rating in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll is the lowest of his career – and the Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in polling back 30 years, with more than half of Americans seeing the party unfavorably for the first time.
The Republican Party is even more unpopular. But benefitting from their supporters’ greater likelihood of voting, GOP candidates nonetheless hold a 50-43 percent lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.

WAPO/ABC Poll: 67% of Americans Support a Travel Ban From Ebola Affected Countries of West Africa Like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea
TWO THIRDS, 67% OF AMERICANS ARE IN FAVOR OF TRAVEL BANS FROM COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY EBOLA … BARACK OBAMA GOLFS.
According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, 67% of Americans are in favor of travel bans for individuals from countries affected by Ebola, namely the West African ravaged countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. JUST 67%? Look for this number to grow considerably after a second transmitted case of Ebola has now been diagnosed in Dallas, Texas.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans are concerned about a widespread epidemic of the Ebola virus in the United States, and about as many in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the federal government is not doing enough to prevent it.
Indeed, more than four in 10 – 43 percent are worried that they or an immediate family member might catch the disease. That’s similar to the level of concern about other viral outbreaks in some previous ABC/Post polls, but more consequential, given Ebola’s high mortality rate.
From The Daily Caller points out that this is not a Republican or Democrat partisan issue … their is support on both sides to put a travel ban in place. Except from the always political, PC, community organizer, Barack Obama.
The public’s support for an Ebola travel ban is growing fast, prompting more Republican and Democratic politicians to demand a White House policy reversal.
Sixty seven percent of Americans said they would favor “restricting entry to the United States by people who’ve been in affected countries,” according to a new poll by The Washington Post and the ABC News.
Only 29 percent opposed the travel curbs on people arriving from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, where 4,000 people have already died from the lethal and invasive disease.
That attitude is spurring politicians to challenge President Barack Obama’s repeated opposition to any restrictions on the entry of apparently healthy Africans who may carry the disease.
Obama’s progressive-style opposition to the travel ban may become a problem for Democrats during the remaining three weeks of the 2014 campaign, especially if more Americans are infected with the deadly disease.
The Latte Salute … or was it Chi Tea?
SHAMEFUL!!! Meet the
Commander Community Agitator in Chief who could just care less about the military. Yesterday, President Barack Obama stepped off Marine One in NYC only to salute the two Marines at the bottom of the helicopter’s stairs with a coffee cup in his hand. HEAD SHAKING. It is being dubbed the “latte salute” although it is uncertain as to whether Obama was drinking Chi tea at the time. This president had just come from a White House photo op explaining to America the air strikes against ISIS that most informed Americans had already known about. In essence, he had just committed America to war in the fight against ISIS and Islamo-Nazi’s and somehow between the flight from DC to NYC Obama resorted back in longing for the days of vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard and golfing.
It is not required that a President salute, but if one is going to, don’t half-ass it. Then again, that has been the theme of the Obama presidency. The sick part about it is he did not even realize he did anything wrong. How disrespectful is that? The White House did not even think it was offensive as they posted it on their Instagram account. Obama should have realized his mistake, turned around, put down his coffee cup and provided a proper salute to both marines and then shook their hands and thanked them for their service.

Some are calling it the “latte salute.”
When President Obama stepped off Marine One at the Wall Street landing zone in New York City, en route the United Nations, he saluted two Marines at the bottom of the stairs as he held a coffee cup in the same hand.
The unusual gesture appeared in an Instagram video posted by the White House on social media. Obama is also wearing sunglasses as he arrived, with the first lady not far behind.

BARACK OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!
According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.
- U.S. Economy added a pathetic 142,000 jobs in August, 2014
- The July payroll number was revised up from plus 209,000 jobs to plus 212,000 but June’s count was revised down from 298,000 jobs added to 267,000. Total employment gains those months were therefore 28,000 lower than what BLS originally reported.
- Black unemployment at 11.4%
- Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low, 92,269,000 not in work force.
- IRS Scandal Continues … Benghazi-gate scandal continues.
- ISIS on the move creating a caliphate, murdering innocents and beheading two Americans with a muddled, dithering and weak response from Obama.
- Obama, a disastrous conclusion that ISIS was the Jayvee, turns out it was Obama who is the rank amateur.
- Putin on the move … China on the move … ISIS on the move … Iran’s nuclear capability on the move Thanks to a weak Ditherer in Chief and the world no longer fears the US because of Obama.
- Obamacare is to a costly joke.
- Afghanistan and Iraq all but lost after the loss of so many brave American military souls.
- Amnesty for illegals.
The below average polling for Obama’s job approval is at 40.25% Approve and 54.25% Disapprove.
Reuters/Ipsos – 8/30 – 9/3: 38% Approve – 56% Disapprove (-18)
Gallup – 9/2 – 9/5 : 38% Approve – 54% Disapprove (-16)
The Economist/YouGov – 8/30 – 9/1: 41% Approve - 56% Disapprove (-15)
GWU/Battleground – 8/23 – 8/28: 44% Approve - 51 Disapprove (-7)
USA Today/Pew Research – 8/20 – 8/24: 42% Approve - 50% Disapprove (-8)
