But foreign policy experts say that the international implications of canceling his trip might be incentive enough for Obama to risk it.
Forgive me, but I find it hard to believe he gives a rat's rear end about that.

It isn't merely his leaving during this "crisis" but also the cost of the trip and how he would justify it when there is a "shutdown" and so  many government workers put on hiatus.

Wrenching decisions my hind end!

Any responsible president would put off any travel plans indefinitely!

He has to go where he can find adoring audiences.  Out of the country or a high school.
He has to have the adoration to function. 

At least, he won't be here to do all the name calling.
