It’s like we’re in a time warp back to the 1970’s. Not the muscle cars and wild times of Studio 54, just the bad parts – turmoil in the Middle East, high unemployment, food and gas prices through the roof and an occupant of the White House with no clue how to deal with any of it.

When asked about this administration’s failures, President Obama quickly becomes Vinnie Barbarino with his “Who? What? Where?” routine.

Vice President Joe Biden isn’t any better. In his debate Thursday, Biden took on a personality that was a cross between Bozo the Clown and Jaws with unnaturally white teeth.

We have Jimmy Carter Part II in the Oval Office with his own Walter Mondale – actually, a far more abrasive version thereof – telling the country the administration wants to raise taxes.

When it comes to the murders of our ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens and the other three Americans whose pleas for security fell on deaf or – more likely – indifferent ears, this administration quickly becomes Sgt. Schultz, seeing nothing, knowing nothing.

When asked during the debate on Thursday why those cries for security from Libya were ignored continually, Biden told the lie of campaign – that he, President Obama and the White House had no idea they had asked for more security. He said, “Well, we weren't told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security again.”

This was a lie so brazen, so absurd, and so contrary to everything we knew about the events leading up to the murders, including sworn congressional testimony given just the day before, even Andrea Mitchell of NBC News had no choice but to call Biden out on it.
