    President Obama continues to fall in the polls, to a new low as measured by The Wall Street Journal/NBC News.

  • BOOK REVIEW: Obama did not believe in the strategy he approved

As a result, all of the liberals called Mr. Bush a liar and condemned him ad nauseam for what they called an unnecessary war.
