    Thank the Lord for Bibi's success today. The prime minister of Israel is a magnificent leader--a statesman, diplomat, soldier, and honorable man who loves his country. Nothing like that could be said of Obama. When Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netenyahu says his most important task is to protect Israel from existential threats, everyone believes him. When Barack Hussein Obama says, "My first job is to protect the American people," it's a laugh line. Bibi served six years in the Israeli Defense Forces, where he displayed exceptional courage, determination, and strength. He fought in the Six-Day War (1967), War of Attrition...

An emotional Obama did not address that issue directly in a televised statement from the White House on the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown that killed 26 people but said something had to...

    President Barack Obama will travel to Newtown, Conn., on Sunday to meet with families of those killed in the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School and thank emergency workers who responded to the tragedy, the White House said Saturday. "The President will also speak at an interfaith vigil for families of the victims as well as families" at 7 p.m., press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. On Friday, an emotional Obama vowed to "take meaningful action, regardless of the politics," to prevent future tragedies like the shooting massacre, which killed 26 people at the school, 20 of...

    US President Barack Obama wept as he addressed the nation in the aftermath of the school shootings in Connecticut. Mr Obama paused repeatedly as he struggled to keep his composure while speaking of the children who had been killed and the milestones in their lives they would never have - birthdays, graduations, weddings. "Our hearts are broken today," he said, at times using a finger to wipe tears at the corners of his eyes. Mr Obama said he had reacted to news of the elementary school shooting first as a parent. He added that he and First Lady Michelle would...
