Can’t defend Obama on Bergdahl

Not even I can defend this one. Since Barack Obama was elected President, he has misstepped many times. I have defended most of those because every step he takes a step he does so with an anchor in the form of the Republican Party pulling him back. The Republicans have attempted to marginalize him since before he took office.

Veterans suffer in blame game

Around 10 years ago – I believe that time is accurate, because as I grow older, time speeds up immensely – I took my mother to the Veteran's Administration outpatient clinic in Redding for an appointment.
