Isn't it odd the protests were not mentioned or shown by any American television networks? Even Obama bashing Sean Hannity neglected to show banners reading "Obama, don't come! We don't want you!" I guess our majority elected "nanny" is keeping us in check. Also, where was Michelle? Was she allowed to leave the plane?
