For John, BLUF: Things may not be all good in DC. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Washington Post, "Post Partisan" section, we have Commenter Ed Rogers giving us "The Insiders: Is there a mutiny brewing around Obama?" A mutiny? That doesn't sound good, or even very American.
Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced.It is the Wash Post and not Fox News. Unsettling.
Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he waved in millions of new illegal immigrants before November, there would be an open revolt against him within the party.
Similarly, a few members of this administration who have independence, stature and an adult disposition may have told the president he must act on the Islamic State or else they were out.
