The media went with the "he kept us safe" line for years. It isn't new. George W. Bush was their Daddy figure, and they did love him. There was major media backlash in 2004 whenever someone would suggest that Preznit Bunnypants was less than perfect in 9/11-related events. If a 9/11-type event happened under Obama's watch, the media would pull a freaker. They pulled a freaker over Benghazi.
