He's right. In the past 5 years, the liberally biased MSM has done it's very best to either spin positively, or ignore completely, any story that is inimical to the Obama administration. This has hurt the country badly because we have a leader that doesn't have to face any difficult questions. But moreover, because the media has refused to ask Mr. Obama any substantive policy questions, he has been able to ignore the nation's best interests...
“They had two reasons to lie,” Krauthammer said. “The first reason was the fact that the Sept. 11 attack occurred a week after they just spent four days in Charlotte dancing on the grave of bin Laden. Remember, this is their single foreign policy achievement. There is none other. Look at Iran Look at Russia. Look at Israel. Look at Syria. Look at the Arab spring. It’s all in collapse. They got one thing to argue, and they sure argued it, where they made the point again and again and again with that ridiculous slogan from Vice President [Biden], ‘bin laden dead, GM alive,’ because what Libya said, what it was proclaiming to the world and the reason the attack was launched in the first place was to say, ‘bin Laden dead, al-Qaida alive.’ That is what has happened as a result of leading from behind in Libya.”Currently, the only thing that he has been able to crow about it the elimination of Osama bin Laden...which would have been better served taking him alive. Because of Obama's missteps in foriegn policy, Al Quieda is resurgent, not just in Afghanistan, but in Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya as well as making inroads into Mali. That's a huge foriegn policy failure.
Krauthammer said the problems stemming from the president’s foreign policy extend beyond Libya. “You’ve got, you know, al-Qaida has — essentially one of the jihadist factions taken over northern Mali,” Krauthammer said. “There are training camps throughout North Africa. And we now know about the rise of the strength of the jihadist in Syria, where Obama has again has been leading from behind.”
When you tie that foreign policy failure to the disasterous domestic policies...this president is on road to unseat James Earl Carter as the 2nd worst president in our history. Currently, in my opinion, James Buchanan holds that title as his policies directly led to the Civil War. The most distructive war in our history.
