You know what's actually intriguing is that gas prices are at record-high levels and it seems as though (thanks to the media with a Democrat in the White House) we have grown accustomed to $3- to $4-per-gallon gasoline.

We have also (again thanks to Obama's media PR machine) grown accustomed to sluggish economic growth and 8-plus-percent unemployment. In addition to this, we no longer seem to be alarmed by our rapidly declining international stature.

Could we have so quickly become accustomed to mediocrity instead of vibrant and bold leadership? If a Republican were in the White House under the same conditions the media would be crying bloody murder and would whip the population into such a frenzy that dramatic change would be inevitable.

This shows the incredible power and responsibility of the media. Unfortunately, they have chosen to exercise the power and neglected the responsibility.
