Opinion: Crowley’s Obama Favoritism Completely Discredits Her As A Journalist

There were so many blatant signs of Obama-favored bias displayed by CNN political correspondent Candy Crowley that one scarcely knows where to begin. She caused the difference between Romney’s huge win in the first debate and his extremely narrow win in the second.

Opinion: Joe Biden Schooled Paul Ryan With Facts And Substance

Mitt Romney’s apprentice salesman stepped on the stage last night and delivered his talking points, but little more. Throughout the night, Joe Biden delivered lesson after lesson to the ambitious young Congressman from Wisconsin.

Opinion: Ryan-Biden Vice Presidential Debate Necessarily Spirited

Both candidates did what they had set out to do. Biden reached out to his base, and Ryan spoke to those who don’t like the direction the country is headed. Republicans are likely not happy that Ryan didn’t deliver the knock-out debate Mitt Romney did a week ago while Democrats are, as previously stated, ecstatic Biden didn’t have a bad night.

Opinion: Obama’s Security Breach In Libya Is Ignored By American Media

As the liberal American press and ultra-liberal bloggers inundate the Internet and newsprints with criticisms of what Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential challenger to President Barack Obama, said about Obama during the Libyan attacks and murders, throngs of foreign press and few American outlets tell the real story involved with the White House’s role in the incidents that we now know could have been prevented.

Opinion: Romney’s Criticism Of Obama Is Misguided And Ignores The Facts

Opinion: Romney’s Criticism Of Obama’s Foreign Policy Is On Target

As unfortunate as the events are, Romney’s comments about Obama ring true. Prior to the tragic event and even after, President Obama appears to excuse and apologize for the horrendous events that take place in the world – including those against Americans.

Opinion: Romney’s Comments On Embassy Attacks Show He Isn’t Ready To Be President

There are moments like the tragedy that unfolded in Egypt and Libya that test candidates. The element of surprise often illuminates a candidate’s ability to inspire and to lead.

As CBS 2’s Kristyn Hartman reports, it was a big reason a local man was heading back to Libya, after 30 years in exile.
