The White House is still White
Did you notice that the White House and the U.S. Capitol were NOT lit up over the weekend in the colors of the French flag, to offer a show of support to the French people after Friday’s attacks? President Obama vowed to do “whatever it takes” to bring the terrorists to justice less than 24 hours after the attacks, but he cannot even show support in a public display. Do you remember when the White House was lit up with rainbow colors after a particular Supreme Court ruling? How can he show his support for one decision, but not for the hundreds of people who were viciously and mercilessly attacked by terrorists and lost their lives?
