Megyn Kelly & Brit Hume – Indictment of a Failed Presidency

Posted: June 18, 2014 at 12:45 pm   /   by

In just 5 minutes, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and Brit Hume deliver an incisive, bullet-listed, top-level indictment of the failures, debacles, scandals, and continuing downward slide of Obama’s presidency.

    It’s only a “failed presidency” from our POV – normal, country-loving US citizens.  It is entirely successful from Team Obama’s standpoint because he intended to give the US its comeuppance, wanted to cut us down to size, make us no better than his vaunted to be emulated European socialist states, wanted to reduce our global footprint, and finally wanted to make us UNEXCEPTIONAL.
