The French Lion and the American Poodle

It has been five days since the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris. During that interval we have learned much about the character of the President of France and the President of the United States. It is clear that French President Hollande is a decisive leader ready and willing to act to defend his country. In contrast President Obama, of the squishy red-line, appears to be more hostile towards his domestic opponents than ISIS. With his typical debating style he argues he doesn't allow for a middle ground between an all-out intervention and doing nothing. 

Perhaps he should talk to his former Secretary of State who is now advocating a no-fly zone and committing considerably more special operations forces. Mrs. Clinton is obviously way more clear eyed than her former boss. For whatever reason President Obama has become the American poodle to the French lion.
