Shame: Democrats mute as America's president bashed overseas

We can disagree at home all we like, but when the president of the United States -- America's president -- goes overseas, we are all Americans. All of us.

The 71-year-old grandmother in terrible health, who occasionally falls down and breaks a limb or bangs her head so hard she suffers a concussion, will not simply go away.
