White House: ‘It’s fair to say’ we were wrong on Paris unity rally

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.”

    Stupid is as stupid does. It wasn’t a mistake, it was O’s arrogance and incompetence.

    It was an ‘irrelevant fact’ where Obama was during Bengahzi, per David Pfeiffer, beheadings interrupt golf games, why bother with silly little protests, he’s above all that. After all ‘what difference does it make now’.

    You can be sure that that statement about making a mistake didn’t come from Obama, the “I Won” never makes mistakes. The “useful idiots” made a mistake of not only electing him once but twice to the presidency, but megalomaniacs never make mistakes.
