President Obama has boosted the esteem of the nation, except that of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Exchanging an Army soldier who was sworn to protect and defend Americans for five senior Taliban terrorists will bring guilt, failure and emotional breakdown upon Sgt. Bergdahl when these same freed terrorists kill Americans.

For the rest of us, President Obama has shown that any person with a low level of intelligence can become president.
