Releasing five hardcore terrorists from GITMO in exchange for an anti-American deserter was a flagrant display of cluelessness and an arrogant (possibly illegal) snub of Congress. It was done with the air of an emperor having his way and caring little of what peons think. Worse than that, it was dangerous since those terrorists are almost certain to return to killing.
Susan Rice praising Bowe Bergdahl as having “served the United States with honor and distinction” was a further display of how out-of-touch this administration really is. Rice should have been hidden away after delivering the Benghazi video narrative that destroyed her credibility and embarrassed the White House. Instead, she was brought out to deliver another false statement as if we are too stupid to notice.
This comes on the heels of the VA scandal that has some Democrats finally peeking out from behind idealistic blinders at the reality of the Obama administration. It has seriously disturbed many Democrat campaign balancing acts of trying to separate oneself from Obama while pretending Obamacare (ACA) is a success.
Obama’s failed foreign policies have severely reduced America’s standing in the world. His failed economic policies have produced an astronomical debt, wasted an enormous amount of money, and solidified unemployment to the point of eradicating the American Dream. His failed campaign promises have destroyed his credibility and increased distrust of government.
The bubble has burst and Obama is going down in flames. Polls show a continuous decline in public approval as scandal after scandal pop up like a whac-a-mole arcade game. He cannot click his heels and return to a sycophantic Congress backing everything he does, but it seems he no longer cares and has resigned himself to do whatever he wishes for the duration of his term.
Unfortunately, that duration is long enough for his runaway administration to do much more damage. His going down in flames has set fire to the entire country. The coming November elections could distinguish many of those fires and stop us from becoming a pile of ashes. Vote wisely.
