On Benghazi and other Obama administration scandals, stop the talk of Watergate, Iran-contra, bigger than both, etc. Hyperbole simply plays into the hands of Democrats desperately claiming this is nothing but partisan politics. Let the facts speak for themselves.

President Obama turned his inaugural address into a left-wing dream factory, from his declaration of war on global warming to the invention of new entitlements—e.g., universal preschool for 5-year-olds—for a country already drowning in debt. It was part of the re-election juggernaut, but the story, or narrative, has lasted exactly six months. The Big Mo is gone.

With George W. Bush's presidential library opening in Dallas and his legacy being reassessed, it's important to note that he did not just keep us safe. He created the entire anti-terror infrastructure that continues to keep us safe.

The president's nonuse of the word “terrorist” when he first talked about the Boston bombings was no big deal. Why so sensitive that he came out to correct it the next morning?

So what was the point of Obama's Jerusalem speech encouraging young Israelis to find the will to make peace, a speech the media drooled over? It was mere rhetoric, a sideshow meant to soften the impact on the Arab side of the really important part of Obama's trip: the radical recalibration of his position on the peace process.

Curbing entitlements is the key to their own solvency and that of the country. President Obama has endorsed it on various occasions, and he could make it happen. If he wants.

A war conducted quite similarly by Presidents Bush and Obama has forged a broad national consensus. What we need now is a president willing to lead and a Congress willing to take responsibility for the conduct of a war which, however wishful the thinking of Rand Paul and his acolytes, will long be with us.

The unhappy truth is that we cannot and should not cut off aid to Egypt. It's not that we must blindly support unfriendly regimes. But Egypt is not an enemy, certainly not yet.

WASHINGTON -- "The worst-case scenario for us," a leading anti-budget-cuts lobbyist told The Washington Post, "is the sequester hits and nothing bad really happens."

Regrettably, there appears to be zero political will to undertake a kind of definitive solution on immigration reform. Democrats have little real interest in border enforcement. They see a rising Hispanic population as the key to a permanent Democratic majority. And Republicans are so panicked by last year's loss of the Hispanic vote by 44 points that they have conceded instant legalization.

The nation's leading chatterers, left and right, are greatly vexed over the morality and legality of President Obama's worldwide drone war. The resulting debate is salutary, but hopelessly confused.
