Somebody put on his big-boy pants

I am so glad that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahi, who I didn't even know had been held for the entire Obama presidency, has been released.

I am also glad that Meriam Ibrahim will be released.

See what can happen when someone puts on his big-boy pants?

Of course, I am not too thrilled about 5 Guantanamo "detainees" being released.

Why do we call people who want lower taxes or oppose abortion "terrorists" but we call actual terrorists "detainees?"

Anyway, my point is (there is one) that when Obama wants to do something good, he can.  He just, normally, doesn't want to.  He has all of those pressing social engagements.

The thing about Benghazi is that the people who died could have been saved and everybody knows it.  But, for some reason they weren't.  And, nobody can understand why.

But, this administration is perfectly capable of doing the right thing when it is politically expedient or when it wants to.

Meanwhile, all of us will continue scratching our heads and trying to figure out why this administration so seldom wants to actually do anything good.
