17. Congress is supposed to have a lot of authority that it now refuses to exercise.

That is a shame. We have so many recalcitrant and irresponsible Republicans in Congress. They are anything but patriotic, just bent on feeling their own power. What a bunch of psychological midgets. No offense to short people. I'm relatively short myself. But the Republicans are so insecure and so little in spirit that they cannot bring themselves to do what is right for our country. Wisdom is lacking in the Republican caucus in Congress. Wisdom.

If Obama had decided to leave Bergdahl behind, the MIA flags would have been flying again. Now that Obama is bringing Bergdahl home, Republicans are criticizing him for trading probable members of Al Qaeda for Bergdahl. It's unbelievable. There was no good solution in that situation. Either way, Obama would have been criticized by Republicans. But no Republican president would have done anything different.
