Yes, the same people who trot out their vile minions to suggest Bowe Bergdahl’s platoon mates are psychopaths. Why, they just can’t believe people would dare question their pristine motives. These lowlifes who politicize breathing are gobsmacked their political opponents would dare even react with anything but euphoria.
White House officials expected controversy when the deal was announced to free Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for the release of five Taliban detainees from the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Despite the feel-good moment in the White House Rose Garden featuring President Obama and Bergdahl’s beaming parents last Saturday, the five-for-one trade was sure to create an uproar, a White House official acknowledged.
What came as a surprise to White House aides, one official says, was the barrage of harsh personal attacks aimed at Bergdahl and even his family.
Tell it to the long litany of people who’ve been mercilessly smeared by Team Obama and the angry left for the past seven years. Then go home and get your fucking shinebox and world smallest violin.
Senior Democratic leaders counter that Republicans are simply using Bergdahl as a political football to damage the President.
“Opponents of President Obama have seized upon the release of an American prisoner of war. That’s what he was. Using a moment of celebration as a chance to play political games,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday.
Because releasing the Taliban Dream team wasn’t a naked political ploy designed to remove Obama’s VA scandal from the headlines. No sirree.
On Wednesday, senators were given an opportunity to view the “proof of life” video that emerged last January and became the basis for the administration’s concerns. A senior U.S. official said the administration is now reviewing whether that video will be made public, as some senators have suggested.
If it helped them it would already be broadcast around the clock to help their case. Instead they’re hiding it. Shocking!
