Opinion: Selectively Presidential: Obama Chooses To Be Presidential When It’s Convenient

When the storm and its headlines have passed, however, the questions about the Benghazi tragedy should continue full force as November 6 continues to near.

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

Opinion: Obama’s Afghan Surge Failed

With the situation getting worse on the ground Obama has ended the surge just in time for the election in November. Taliban and related attacks against NATO powers were approximately 2,700 in August of 2009 when Obama made his contrary-to-campaign promised-move to step up the nation’s military assistance in Afghanistan. Three years later, in August of 2012, there were more attacks – nearly 3,000.

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.
