I guess I remain in the minority of believing 0zero is not as smart as many believe.
One really interesting revelation you write is that money was involved in the release of Bergdahl. I hope that gets verified at some point. Rumors alluded to that but I have not seen it verified. What I heard was we had a choice of trading people or money for Bergdahl and chose to give them the five terrorists. If we gave money as well, that’s even worse since we didn’t have to do it.
I heard same things you have, including from Lt Col Ollie North saying we gave $5 Million to Haqqani tribe (but he seemed to be speculating). Of course that is chump change in this rarefied atmosphere.
I don’t think you are in such a small minority any more. It just makes good sense that someone who won’t release his grades, can’t run a lemonade stand is not very bright.
Agree. It is endlessly expressed on this board that no matter what, "He will get away with it." It's easy to understand where that's coming from.
I wish folks would consider that this repeated defeatist rhetoric is not helpful in any way. It's actually aiding and abetting, in a way. If it were one or two occasional comments among a hundred - that's one thing. But lately, having read a lot (more than usual) the board seems overrun with...
Case in point: Allen West called for Articles of Impeachment. On the thread about that, multiple comments are posted, declaring the absolute impossibility of such. We cry out for leaders. Leader steps up. His message is derided. Cynicism will get us nowhere.

Morgan in Denver - I agree with you regarding the “smart” portion of Obama. This however is not the point.
Every dictatorship has a titular head who has an “army” or cadre of Sycophants who do not need explicit instructions to implement the dictates they all believe in.
In the case of Obama he has the Communists in what is called the Democrat party, he has the Communists in the propaganda industry (CNN loosing money and still doubles down on this propaganda), this list is long (Education, courts, militarization of the local police)
I hope and pray that Ted (the)Cruz(missile) has an answer to this problem
