To no one’s surprise, President Obama is being taken to task by GOP leaders for not informing Congress about securing the release of a soldier, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban in Afghanistan for nearly five years. I am glad that not one shot was fired. It showed that diplomacy, not military force, worked well to free Sgt. Bergdahl.
Again the GOP goes out of its way to find something wrong with whatever our president does. In this case, his patience and quiet diplomacy worked, but not to the GOP’s liking. They have demonstrated their hatred for Obama quite clearly.
I say, Enough! I thank the president for a job well done — and welcome home, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
