President Incompetant

Anything for a photo op...when I'm in trouble
President Obama announced on Saturday in the Rose Garden that he traded 5 major Taliban terrorists for a suspected deserting PFC held captive for 5 years.  With him were his parents, one who seemed to support releasing all Gitmo prisoners and also thanked Allah.  Just on the face of that photo op - this seemed somewhat perplexing.  They even broke into "I Love Lucy" (an LA Saturday afternoon staple) out here to bring us this news.  The initial reaction was "man, this guy won't stop for any photo op".

And of course the preceding month leading up to this had Congress establishing a special committee to investigate Benghazi (where we did leave military people behind), the economy contracting by 1% in the first quarter of this year and the explosion of the VA scandal (an issue that Obama claimed that he substantiated his Presidency on - but which he has done nothing).  On Friday his VA Secretary was fired and his Press Secretary stepped down.  Not a good time.  (And Obamacare is still bad, the IRS scandal is still there, Russia is in Crimea, et al). 

So Saturday he trots out these poor parents and announces this swap for five terrorists?  I couldn't even believe this was on TV!  And they thought this would be good news?  The press is all over this massive miscalculation and tone-deafness in this administration.  He traded 5 high ranking radicals for a deserter?  His fellow army corpsmen have come on TV saying he should be court
martialed or even face the firing squad!  Six soldiers lost their lives looking for this fool.  And even on Sunday morning that purveyor of truth Susan Rice said he served with "honor and distinction"!?  Who gave her the "talking points" this time?

Later asked about this, as he made his way abroad to Poland, Obama claimed that the " US leaves no man behind"  Tell that to the Benghazi victims.  This man is unbelievably incompetent - and for this act alone - and his cavalier approach to the world stage and our security - should be now be seriously considered for impeachment.  The man cares nothing for the country at all - and is a disgrace to the office.
