SC Times defends President Obama

This Our View editorial in the St. Cloud Times proves how intellectually dishonest the Times’ editorial page is. Here’s exhibit A: Even if the bill had passed, President Obama doesn’t support the bill. He prefers to have the State Department work through the approval process for the project. It isn’t that President Obama prefers having […]
