President Obama is doubling down in his defense of his blunder in defying the rule of law, exercising poor judgment, and mischaracterizing (I’m trying to be charitable) the service of Sgt. Bergdahl in his ill-conceived ‘deal’ to free the lone American serviceman held captive in Afghanistan. The proximity of this poor decision to the heat of opprobrium the president was recently suffering for the VA access-to-care scandal is disquieting. When it is set against his prior action in jumping at the Joint Plan of Action to “give diplomacy a chance” in the matter of Iranian nuclear ambitions, there is a downright disturbing pattern. Is our narcissist-in-chief jumping at available, but poor, deals-in-the-offing to turn the page on his own political difficulties.
