Joe Biden is wise president.

The world is much better off with him

We elected a skilled leader, not a celebrity. The press seems wedded to celebrities and it's time for a divorce.

Thanks to Biden and to Simon who, unlike much of the media including the NY Times and Washington Post, keep undercutting Biden and ignoring the danger of Trump.

It can't be easy to "negotiate" with terrorists, whose every incentive is to terrorize, not compromise. I note the irony of the International Red Cross's involvement, since the IRC long refused to recognize Israel's Mogen David Adom (the six-pointed Jewish star) equivalent of the Red Cross, even though the IRC recognized the Muslim Red Crescent equivalent. It's a good thing Jews and Israelis have a sublime sense of humor.

Thanks, Pres. Biden. Your work behind the scenes made this happen. Hope the MSM understands and reports this.

Please, somehow, let's keep the grownup President and Team in office for another term. Terrifying to think of a lesser skilled....or facist.....in office

This is not a good deal for Israel. 13 Israeli's, no Americans in exchange for the release of 150 terrorists who are currently in Israeli jails. Also, there is a lot of pressure on Israel for a 2 state solution which means once again that they will be asked to give up land for peace..... and every time they have done this, they lose land and do not get peace.

His silences have much power too.

No deal should be made without getting all of the hostages out first. My mother and several friends live in Israel.

Where is the White House communication team? Biden’s success in securing the hostage release is a perfect example of how his wisdom and experience are incredible assets. This type of success is exactly the type of foyle that can parry the attacks on his age. But by watching the news you’d hardly know he was involved at all. It’s been reported that the United States helped facilitate the deal but Biden’s name is not mentioned. The message of Biden’s success needs to flood the airwaves. The President is on vacation for the holiday but is his PR team on vacation too? Where are the surrogates on the news shows? Where are the press releases touting the President’s success? I asked this same question in a previous post, where is the campaign?

I know one tenant of this platform is to not criticize the campaign and be positive but I’m frustrated. We constantly talk about the existential threat a Trump win can cause but that’s not enough. We can’t let any Biden success go unused. But so far, it seems to me, that this one is being wasted.
