Dennys Global Politics: President Obama Weekly Address: This Labor Day, Let’s Talk About the Minimum Wage
WASHINGTON, DC —In this week’s address, the President wished Americans a Happy Labor Day weekend, highlighted the important economic progress we’ve made, and reaffirmed his commitment to accelerate our progress and ensure that our growing economy fuels a strong middle class. To do this, the President reiterated that Congress should do right by hardworking Americans across the country and raise the minimum wage and he praised the 13 states and Washington, DC as well as employers large and small who have heeded his call and taken action to provide their citizens and employees a fair wage.

What is the matter with the political hacks of this Obama White House? Are they so depraved they don't realize how many people they have now condemned to death all because they wanted to prop up the President's sagging poll numbers? Is their reasoning "it's better to look like the President is doing something and failed at the ISIL hostage rescue than to be perceived as doing nothing?"
And this is why after winning a second term every President needs to send home his political team and get a real team that is serious about proper governing. You just can't take political people and transform them into governing people. Why? Because when the political heat is on they revert to their default programming...

A Truth Journal: POW Bowe Bergdahl: 8,000 Afghan-Iraq War Deserters. Why Is America Attacking THIS One?
A Truth Journal: POW Bowe Bergdahl: 8,000 Afghan-Iraq War Deserters. Why Is America Attacking THIS One?: From Denny: Maybe the headline should be: "Do Terrorists Win? The Perplexing Vicious Bullying of POW Bowe Bergdahl." For almost two months I've been working to write this post but have found myself shocked, dismayed, downright apoplectic - and practically speechless - at the savage, malicious, downright evil attacks against Bowe Bergdahl. So much for the loyalty to the American philosophy of "Leave No One Behind." In this case it should read: "Leave No One Behind Unless It's Convenient To Use Them For Political Advantage [2016 election] And Avoid Prosecution For War Crimes."
Yes, I am still that furious at the attackers of a returning POW who experienced pure Hell for a very long five years. So, I took a serious time out to watch before commenting to see how things played out since I knew it was the political hacks - and - highly suspect - most likely some very guilty platoon mates from Bergdahl's outfit - who were driving these attacks...
