    Why did Obama leave NY without meeting any international leaders?

    Edit: since I'm being blasted for asking for others' insight, let me explain.
    I support Obama. I love him, most of the time.
    He is the first in many, many years to not take advantage of this opportunity. Including previous presidents.
    He had an opportunity to meet the new Egyptian president for the first time.
    People on DU are sometimes very smart and might have been able to shed some light on his decision, provide ideas that I haven't thought of.
    Instead most of you are being jerks.
    Sorry I'm human.


    Seems he should have used this opportunity. He has never met several of these key leaders and seems to have blown a significant foreign policy opportunity.

    His spokesman says his calendar is busy. The only thing on the official calendar is a campaign appearance.

    Any ideas to help me feel more comfortable about his decision?4

    20. Why do you have to be mean when someone is trying to learn?

    I love DU because people post interesting info. I did not see any discussion of this and wanted to see if any of the SMART people have info/insights that would help.

    Forget it.

    23. Oh please

    You're not fooling anyone.

    It is funny that you feel the need to troll, though. Confident people don't troll. You're losing and you know it.

    31. I'm not trolling. I reported the person whose post was removed.

    I think if you look at my posts you'll see that I am thoughtful and considerate, and dislike name calling. I have been on DU since the early 2000s though I was booted off early on for asking what FR stood for. I petitioned to be reinstated after a few months and rejoined.

    I feel accosted almost every time I post a question or thought on DU. Please relax and back off.

    38. I am always dismayed when DUers jump on someone who is asking a question. And

    I think the OP's question is legit. I'd be interested to know the reasoning, too, if only to get a better understanding of the politics involved.

    People DO have legitimate concerns, you know. Why can't you be more trusting of a fellow DUer? We're all on the same side.
