Last week, Iraq was imploding despite President Obama’s and Vice President Joe Biden’s words in 2011 that Iraq would be a stable and sovereign nation after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. Thousands of undocumented youngsters and adults are pouring across our southern borders, thanks to an Obama policy that allows young children to come and stay. And after waiting one year for Lois Lerner’s/IRS e-mails, we are told they have mysteriously disappeared because of a computer glitch, something few believe.

Where are our leaders? Obama is in California playing golf, attending fundraisers and giving speeches on global warming. His Senate majority leader is more concerned with the name of the Washington Redskins football team than more serious matters. Is this a comedy of errors or just more detachment and ineptness by this administration? It doesn’t matter, because it seems to just keep happening over and over again.
