Posted on 01/13/2015 12:46:17 PM PST by Nachum
CNN anchor Jake Tapper continued his prosecution of the Obama administration for not sending a high-level official to the Paris Unity Rally yesterday. He lit into former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, now a CNN contributor, on Monday, asking what the administration was thinking in skipping the rally.
Carney argued the security challenges of a president in an open rally would have distracted from the rallys Franco-centric message.
I take your point on the president, Tapper responded. But Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, somebody else from the administration? Chuck Hagel?

Certainly youll grant the point that theres something wrong when this seasons The Good Wife had higher Obama representation, with a cameo from Valerie Jarrett, than this very important rally, Tapper charged, perhaps the most important rally in Europe in a generation.

Another good reason not to watch that show.
He he... Tapper said (implied) that Jarrett had more importance than the United States Ambassador to France. The Ambassador having attended the march.
pssst... he’s right.
Hope none of them show up on Galavant.
Jay is a horrible liar. Stay out of Vegas, Jay.
“the security challenges of a president in an open rally would have distracted”
This excuse wasn’t well received when Bush used it after Katrina......
There were 40 other world leaders with security concerns of their own, but they still attended.
He makes it sound as if bozo would be the ONLY leader at that rally.
The were 40 world leaders there. How did their security distract the rally?
If bozo's security is a distraction, then maybe he should eliminate some and tone down on his "parade".
Truth is, bozo knew he would not be the center of attention.
All those others aren’t a security distraction?... Well, pot is legal in DC now, and Carney must have taken a hit before the daily ‘briefing’
Indeed, Netanyahu looked like he was going to buckle under the thick weight of his body armor while he marched alongside his peers.
Obama is a good little Chicago ghetto boy, completely inadequate in such important rallies. He will remain a Chicago rat always.
but the reason was believable because of the massive search, rescue and relocation efforts going on at the moment. People can’t honesty compare the two - its apples and oranges - but they will.
I have no idea who our ambassador to France is, but I’d bet it’s some political hack or fundraising bundler.
“I take your point on the president, Tapper responded. But Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, somebody else from the administration? Chuck Hagel?”
What caused Tapper’s brain damage? Someone from the administration - Clinton, Hagel? Seeking Carney’s opinion? What year is he living in? I’ve seen his reporting on the subject of the march in Paris and there’s no way he is upset about the president not showing up including the day it was taking place. He stated his personal opinion and made sure everyone knew it was his personal opinion and that was it.
