Yes, the word is the MSM has decided that it just didn't happen that way.
Obama is America’s First Failed Black Pres-dent.....
Seems to be a Delegater in Chief.

The obamedia has become a joke.

Obama on Saturday spoke with homeland security adviser John Brennan and a top National Security Council official, Denis McDonough. The group spoke at 6:20 a.m. local time in Hawaii. Obamas motorcade left his rented vacation estate for the gym at 6:33 a.m.
White House spokesman Bill Burton says the president is continuing to monitor the situation.
