This weekend I had the pleasure to watch a CNN film called "41ON41”.

The film, based on interviews with 41 people who CNN represents as those “who know him best”, provides us a glimpse into the life and times of our nation’s 41st President.

On June 12 the former President celebrated his 90th birthday.  As the oldest of our nation’s living former Presidents the twilight of his life is certainly upon him.

Once upon a time there was a Democrat in the Oval Office who had perched upon his desk a sign with this saying:

“The buck stops here”.

The current Democrat who occupies the White House has not only covered up that sign, but he and his Administration have covered up the truth about Benghazi.
