By Obama standards, it’s been his team’s finest hour.

And the timeline goes on, showing how through spin and denials the Obama team tried to cover up the facts of the attack. If Charlene Lamb knew it was a terrorist attack in real time, Hillary Clinton knew. And so did Obama. Yet Obama, Clinton and Susan Rice told us for weeks afterward that it wasn’t.
The Obama team’s attempts to cover up the attack having failed, they still haven’t given up on spinning the facts. On Sunday, David Axelrod told Fox News Sunday that the president had labeled it a terrorist attack the day after it happened. But as the documentation of the timeline proves, he called it a “terrible act,” not a terrorist attack.
The difference is important. Obama and his team lied about the attack, the lack of any connection to the obscure video, and the pleas from Libya to bolster security. All of this was done to protect the Obama claim to greatness in propelling the “Arab spring.”
Benghazigate is not just a massive scandal and cover-up. It is proof positive of Obama’s failed policies and bad decisions that will yet cost more American lives in the Middle East and wherever else Islamists are emboldened by his failures.
We can only wonder what goes on in the White House late at night. When Obama wakes in the dark, the chuckling sound he hears might be the shade of Richard Nixon, laughing about the fact that no one died in Watergate.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
