I mean don't get me wrong I have a toddler and haven't seen a huge amount of news coverage and could be missing something but so many political leaders seemed to get involved in the unity march and it occurred to me how quiet the Americans have kept over it all. I mean all the fuss over the Sony film but nothing for terrorists and hostage situations. I thought they could have offered some more support.
We have just got used to having a prime minister who thinks the news is there for him to make soundbites, whether it has anything to do with him or not. Obama isn't standing for re election, so doesn't have to do that. He is letting France take the lead and has offered condolences, what do you expect?
Obama visited the French Embassy in Washington to pay his respects and this was filmed and on the news. He was quiet while there because he was being respectful. Nothing strange about that I wouldn't think.
