    There is a left-wing media bias - and the media will maintain a double standard for as long as they can get away with it. However, when a liberal politician becomes an embarrassment - they must sever ties forcefully in order to confine the damage to the person rather than the cause (and the media cannot maintain an unbiased pretense indefinitely without completely damaging itself - although many argue that it is waaaaaay too late for that)

    Yes, and gas prices were lower when he took office because "because the economy was on the verge of collapse" -- The gouging at the pump today has nothing to do with his energy secretary's agenda. Chu is quoted as saying, "somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe," which are in the neighborhood of $8 a gallon. (And yes, I do realize that they were high under Bush -- but I don't think he was a good president either which is why I didn't vote for him).

    Spin it all you want, but ecObamics is a disaster. There is a record high enrollment of Americans on foodstamps, gas prices are very high which raises the prices of other goods and services, more Americans are unemployed today than when Obama took office, the average American household has lost 50% of its wealth, the deficit has NOT gone down but rather UP 45% in just 3 !/2 years of his term, and a new study has shown that even African Americans are worse off economically under Obama's Presidency.

    Politico and ONE Washington post writer. That still leaves most of the lamestream media shilling for BO.

    Truth is truth but only the facts change.

    We may see some truth from some sources that are under fire as the President is for their handling of the Libyan incident.

    When the Fast and Furious became more under attack after the deaths of those agents, the Secretary of Justice, the top legal person in the administration, didn't own up to any responsibility as Hillary has, a little bit.

    The Libyan event is now into the Major Media as they can't push it under the rugs. The question will be where was their integrity in reporting. They supposedly are journalists and should have pushed for the answers.

    The press has lost some credibility due to this President and the Press' lack of honesty in reporting. If those reporters were in that austere and hostile environment putting their life on the chopping block, they would have questioned more. Even in Iraq and Afghanistan they are protected by our military men and women.

    When you serve and ask for backups due to the situation and then are denied that right because the person at the top is at the View, Jay Leno, etc. it is not funny to your family.

    Every man, woman and child’s share of the national debt was $36,000 when President Obama came into office. Now, after four years of failed leadership and empty promises it has gone up 45% to $51,000. Liberals may find that acceptable but not the voters on November 6th.

    Interesting.. The article mentions that has failed to cut the deficit in half, but fails to mention that it has actually gone down under Obama. A compilation of non objective observations?
