CNN logoAccolades directed at President Barack Obama are expected over the next several months as the chief executive leaves office and as the scribes sharpen their pens to start eviscerating the incoming administration.

The glowing tributes started this week with CNN and will keep on coming as Obama’s final days in office quickly approach..

The CNN tribute was high on emotion – and selective on the facts – as when host Fareed Zakaria asked about the rise of ISIS, which the president insists on calling “ISIL.”

“The ability of ISIL to initiate major land offensives, that was not on my intelligence radar screen,” Obama insisted.

This comes as a bit of a surprise to Pentagon analyst Robert Maginnis, who was among those in the intelligence community.

“I wrote about it – a lot of other folks wrote about it,” Maginnis shared. “We said conclusively this was going to be very, very bad. It was only a couple years later when al Qaida did morph into ISIS.”

The rest of the story wasn’t much more objective.

“It seemed like a fairy tale beginning, but at precisely the moment the First Couple began swaying on the dance floor, the central crisis of the Obama presidency was already taking shape,” Zakaria explained.

The terrible threat to the Obama presidency was not ISIS, the widening racial gap or the economic meltdown of the nation? According to the Left-leading media, the greatest threat was Republicans.

“Within half a mile of where Obama and Michelle are dancing and celebrating their great victory, his Republican opponents are wining and dining and plotting his defeat,” CNN’s Ryan Lizza reported.

Tim Graham of Media Research Center contends that any qualm the Republicans had with Obama was based on racism.

“It's one thing to say it's unfortunate that Republicans opposed him, but it's the implication – very strongly made --  that they opposed him because of his skin color,” Graham stated.

Zakaria also played the race card.

(CNN’s Fareed Zakaria) 1:48 “Did race play a role in the brick wall of Republican resistance to Barack Obama?” Zakaria posed.

These accounts comprise CNN’s first draft of history on the Obama presidency.
