Murdock: Obama rests comfortably after Paris attacks
NEW YORK -- At last, a western leader is at war with radical Islam. Too bad it is not Obama. Leave it to a French socialist, namely President Francois Hollande, to take the battle to ISIS. “It’s an act of war,” he declared, soon after the terrorist group’s deadly rampage...
