Does he really think people are this stupid? Of course he does.
As President Barack Obama starts his third overseas trip in less than three months, he finds himself once again peppered with questions about his foreign policy, even as he attempts to cement his own legacy on the world stage.
Obama landed Tuesday in Poland, his first stop, on a mission to reassure nervous allies in Eastern Europe after Russia’s incursion into Ukraine.
His three-nation journey comes as Republicans have unleashed a new line of attack questioning his judgment in exchanging five Taliban prisoners held at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for the return of a former prisoner of war, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
At a news conference in Warsaw, Obama defended the decision.
“We don’t leave men and women in uniform behind,” the President said.
Chris Stevens and three others were unavailable for comment. Meanwhile, we’ve got a Marine languishing in a Mexican prison and Obama hasn’t lifted a finger to help him. Is there anyone in the media with the stones to call him out on this bullshit of his?
