The Sun buries Obama scandals

It looks like this heavily Democratic state's main publication is going to ignore the problems of this administration just like the White House is. What is on the front page of The Sun? is there any mention of Benghazi? The IRS and their illegal actions or the Associated Press being screened? Nothing! Oyster seeding, new technology for blocking cell phones in the prisons and the "sequester" causing the Blue Angels not to appear at the Naval Academy graduation make the front page.

Any mention of the 3 biggest embarrassments to this administration? Oh yes, there is "Obama's a la carte approach" on page 6; however it is by two writers from the Washington Post! Where are the liberal pundits of the Sun, Jules Witcover, Tom Schaller or Dan Rodricks? I guess they are pondering how to put a positive spin on all this. For the first 4 years, we heard how everything was the fault of President George W. Bush. Now it is the fault of nobody, it seems. So much for the most transparent administration.

    The Sun editorial board has basically ignored the Obama administration's lack of transparency, not to mention its mismanagement of the Benghazi affair and the attorney general's pathetic handling of the Associated Press and Fox News investigations.

    Eric Holder should be fired

    Transparency and accountability are not hallmarks of the Obama administration. When a government operation calls for the distribution of thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels and results in the death of a U.S. border patrol agent and at least 200 Mexican citizens, someone better start explaining.

    I've enjoyed reading the more moderate conservative pundits trying to reason with their base to, as Timothy Meyer puts it, get over their "Obama obsession" ("Conservatives: Lose the Obama obsession," May 30). Good luck with that. President Barack Obama has the economic policies of an Eisenhower...
