This is what it looks like when Obama loses it.

We’ve witnessed this before, but this time it’s a little different.

This time Obama’s the target of a coordinated attack by the mainstream media. The press-titutes, as my friend Shawn Mitchell happily calls them, are heaping scorn on the president in a way that previously was reserved only for conservative news outlets.

Obama's Presidency Is on the Ropes – Again- says

Obama’s Foreign Policy Approval Rating Falls to New Low- says Time.

Remember when foreign policy was Obama’s strong suit? Not anymore- says the Washington Post.

I don't actually remember when foreign policy was Obama’s strong suit.

I remember a time when the world expressed their anti-Americanism by embracing Obama--more about that in a second.

I also remember when Americans preferred disengagement to being a leader in the world-- that defeatist attitude taken by so-called libertarians, Democrats, and Know-Nothings that gulls the country into a false sense of security.

But it’s informative that the official Party line as prescribed by the WaPo is that Obama’s foreign policy is a failure…now.

I’m guessing previously-- when Hillary was in charge—foreign policy was just fine, with the guiding hand of a strong confident woman whose most impressive resume item was not staying home and baking cookies because, well, Bill was never home, was he?

Perhaps had he stayed home more, Hillary’s cooking would have kept the pounds off.

I like this concept of “press-titues.”

While Obama thought he owned the media, in truth he only rented them.
