Given how well the Mainstream Media has protected and insulated Barack Obama from every single serious challenge to both his credibility and competence, (deaths of ambassadors, border agents, hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars given to political cronies, etc.) the fact Mr. Obama can, after this many years of over-the-top favorable coverage, actually complain the media is just not liberal or fair enough – is simply and shockingly absurd.
