At the Democrat Convention in Charlotte Obama arrogantly proclaimed "I am the President!" I suppose he felt it necessary to remind us since in so many ways he has avoided the responsibility that comes with the job.
A perfect case in point is Obama's weak, confused, incompetent and reckless foreign policy which is now collapsing about his ears as we witness the Arab world going up in flames as radical Muslims riot against the United States.
There are so many questions crying out for answers that can only come from the Commander in Chief. A British news report suggests that we had prior warning of the attacks but did nothing. Also, missing documents at our gutted consulate in Benghazi give the names of Libyans working with the U.S. What steps are we taking to assure their safety?
On Wednesday Obama broke with longstanding U.S. policy and declared that Egypt is no longer an "ally." If so, then why are we continuing to give them billions in aide?
Why can't Obama make time to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu when both men are in New York for the opening of the United Nations session? Obama does have time to do an appearance on David Letterman.
Was it appropriate for Obama to take off to Las Vegas to do a campaign fundraiser and event the same day we learned of the murder of Ambassador Stevens in Libya and three other Americans?
Then there are the general questions about the failure of Obama's Middle East policy. Shouldn't the press be asking for specifics on how Obama will address this failure?
Media More Interested in Gotcha Journalism with Romney Than Answers from Obama
On Wednesday, the "Big Three" television networks devoted nine minutes and 28 seconds to coverage regarding Mitt Romney's statement on the attacks. Nearly all of that coverage was critical. The same networks devoted just 25 seconds to reporting on Obama's failed policy.
And that overkill was no accident. Reporters covering Mitt Romney were heard on an open mic before his press conference in Florida coordinating the critical story line and colluding on their questions.
The bias was so overwhelming that Kirsten Powers, a Democrat columnist, said that it had:
"overshadowed any kind of outrage that you would see over the fact that you have Islamic flags being hoisted over American embassies, the fact that an American ambassador is dead."In the 2008 election the media did everything they could to cover up Obama's lack of experience and his ties to radical associates. Now, they cover up for his spectacular foreign policy failure in a moment of crisis. The press has abdicated it's role as the impartial watchdog charged with the responsibility to provide the American people the information they need to make an informed decision.
And the left wonders why people watch Fox News!
