Palin to Obama: 'You Blew It' on POW Exchange, Destroyed Morale
Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | June 2, 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 06/02/2014 2:23:55 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

On Monday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed President Barack Obama for trading five high-level terrorists for an American prisoner of war who reportedly deserted his troops five years ago and caused at least six soldiers to die while searching for him.

"You blew it again, Barack Obama," Palin said, slamming Obama for "negotiating away any leverage against the bad guys as these bad guys – Osama Bin Laden's partners in evil crime – joyfully celebrate their 'win' in the deal you sealed."

In a post titled, "Commander-in-Chief's Definition of 'Honorable Service' Includes Anti-American Actions While in Uniform; He Just Destroyed Troop Morale," Palin ripped National Security Adviser Susan Rice for saying on Sunday that Bowe Bergdahl had served with "honor and distinction."

"No, Mr. President, a soldier expressing horrid anti-American beliefs – even boldly putting them in writing and [unabashedly firing off his messages] while in uniform, just three days before he left his unit on foot – is not 'honorable service,'" Palin wrote ."Unless that is your standard."

Palin asked Obama to use the White House Rose Garden to "praise the truly honorable service of our good U.S. troops [who were killed] in their search for Sgt. Bergdahl" and "the soldiers who fought with everything they had to defeat Islamic terrorists, those whom you just freed from prison."

"Our men gave all. Our surviving combat vets will forever live with the effects of the missions they willingly engaged in to protect you, our country, and certainly their brothers and sisters who are proud to wear the uniform," she wrote...

Unless his goal was to destroy morale. Then it would be a resounding success!

Obama to Palin: “Bergdahl is a hero, and leave my personal life out of this!”

He didn’t blow it, he’s on the side of the Taliban not the USA.
It was a big success to release 5 of their leaders for a deserter who likely intentionally aided the enemy.

This is consistent with his policy on Egypt, Syria, etc...

could it be that Sarah Palin doesn’t quite get it yet?
that O didn’t “blow it” — that he achieved exactly what he set out to do....

Ms. Palin, where a person’s actions are consistently in one direction....they are usually intended..(and especially where, as with O, he has told you he, in effect, hates America and wants to “transform it” into something closer to his native Kenya, or?)

I respectfully disagree with Gov. Palin.
I can see TREASON from here.

"We are not just "terrorists". We are Generals
planning to kill you all. Praise be our Caliph Obama.
Even WE, at Gitmo read online, the Wikileak dossiers on us, ... you stupid dhimmi fools."

Obama has submitted to Islam. He has shown us he is a follower of Allah the moon god, and a soldier in the Army of Islam who will fight against the “Infidels” or non-Muslims. Obama, the enemy of God and the enemy of the Human race

She's a political figure, not an average Joe or Jane like you and me. She has to be somewhat circumspect in what she says and accuses the president on.

.
That is something neither Palin nor most members of Congress are willing to admit because that would mean that they are kicking the can down the road.

This is truly curious. All six people in this trade should have stayed exactly where they were. It makes no sense from a non-muslim, terrorist-hating-president point of view. Just plain vile.

Bergdahl’s unit at the time was the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division

The 4th Brigade, 25th Division is, I believe, out of Ft Richardson, Alaska.

Sarah Palin knows a thing or two about Alaska.

She might have a hole card that she’s hiding on this one.

What more would you like her to do? She holds no office, has no huge fortune to bestow on candidates, is ridiculed by half the country and is only one person... What are YOU doing to turn the tide? Look at my tagline. Do you think I’m joking? I’m an old, fat disabled veteran that can barely walk anymore. Are you able-bodied?

"You blew it again, Barack Obama," Palin said,...


I am thrilled that she refers to him like that, because he almost always refers to President Bush, as "George Bush."

The Marxist is totally disrespectful and he merits NO RESPECT AT ALL!

God bless and keep GOVERNOR Sarah Palin!!!!

If you listen to her more often and carefully, you will plainly understand that she really does get what you mention.

How do we know deserter Private Brody Bergdahl even wanted to return? Did Obama promise him a prayer rug, mosque membership, and treatment in a non-VA hospital? Will he be sent back to Idaho, with mention that it’s a target-rich Red-state environment?

I think she has to refer to the Marxist that way. And I think even calling that son of a marxist by his name that he currently uses takes effort.
There are other terms that can be used in other venues for the resident traiter in chief.

Right! I never call him "president," and you know it.

I can't post what I call him... nor what DrO called him, either.

Won’t happen.

It reminds me of the part of the movie “Soylent Green” when the “police book” Sol finally realizes what soylent green must be made of. And decides to go “home” rather than live with that truth.
