It is Deja Vu but this time the Press is not calling him on it
Indeed, during this administration Osama Bin Laden was finally located and exterminated. But as we saw on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, Al Quaida and all its various factions still has the ability to attack a US embassy (technically a consulate) and the current president and his administration have shown a marked propensity to be unable to respond in a timely or helpful manner. But on both cases, the claim by the President and the failure to act - the legacy media seems strangely silent.
Just like his helicopter ride over New Jersey, the President's media events seem to outrank his ability to govern. I am not surprised by this disparity but I am disappointed that the media seems to lack any sense of objectivity.
