"Deserter"

by Jerry Bader

Nick Anderson of the Houston Chronicle hits a home run. Interestingly, a number of Republican lawmakers are giving President Obama something of a pass on the 30 day notification to Congress law on Gitmo releases. I understand that they don't want to hamstring future presidents, but the law seems pretty clear here.

I solicited liberal callers on the show yesterday and got several of them. None of them defended President Obama's actions in the Bergdahl/Taliban exchange. Regardless of Mr. Obama's motives for the exchange, which I do question, the tone-deafness on the public response is stunning.

Almost equally stunning is the mainstream media not just going along with the Obama party line on this one, but actually challenging it.
