Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama needs to get out in front of critics and explain what his team is doing with the Iran negotiations and how he views the Bowe Bergdahl desertion case.

"A very complex week. The good news for President Obama is that states that have adopted Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act have actually saved about $5 billion on health care costs while states that refused actually saw no savings.

"His poll numbers have not suffered.

"But the bad news is troubling indeed for the president: While Secretary of State John Kerry puts finishing touches on a nuclear deal with Iran and Iran is acting as a U.S. proxy fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, our most powerful regional allies are bombing Iranian Shia proxies in Yemen.

"You know, 'The enemy of our enemy is the enemy of our enemy whoever our enemy and their enemy may be.' I can see the pieces fit somehow, but somebody better explain this to the American people. Fast.

"And then there is the whole issue of Bowe Bergdahl which looks like a hard sell."
