Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

So the Obams thinks it's a good deal to trade 5 Gitmo detainees for a perfidious deserter. I was outraged about this allweekend. i'd say the evidence of perfidy is pretty conclusive.

No pushing at the door please!

Is Bergdahl pitiful, or perfidious?

"We just-freed Generals plan to kill you all.
Praise to your perfidious Caliph Obama
who ignored what even WE read online in the
Wikileak dossier on us, ... you dhimmi fools."

Definitely perfidious. He made anti-American statements to his platoon. His father CLEARLY is perfidious, with his speaking in Pashtun, tweeting about avenging Afghan children’s deaths, and all but praising Allah for the son’s return.

Romney was mocked; too fastidious
So we got Barack, the perfidious
In Benghazi, he flopped
Now 5 killers, he swapped
For a putz, in a trade that is hideous

The EPA should be unfunded and disbanded for their perfidious unconstitutional
passing and enforcing their own laws in the form of “regulations.”

As soon as I saw Barry drag out the Bergdahls for a photo-op, I knew exactly what this whole thing was about. And I heard at least three democrats (my maximum allowable daily intake) say the equivalent of: "The only thing that matters is that Bowe is reunited with his parents."

How is that "the only thing that matters"? Would it have been okay to empty Guantanamo to get him back? Maybe we should have thrown in the Hawaiian Islands so the Jihadis could use it for a training base.

Liberals are great at looking at one side of an equation when it suits them. Famously, "a woman's right to choose" is sacrosanct. It doesn't even override "a baby's right to live." That never even becomes part of the equation. The tradeoff is never weighed.

Unfortunately, Barry, as all good politicians understand, governing is all about tradeoffs. We don't just say that "coal causes climate change, therefore we won't allow it." We should weigh the perceived climate-related costs to the anticipated economic costs. Same thing with the Keystone Pipeline.

I wrote a lot about this yesterday, here.

My favorite disingenuous line from yesterday's talking points has to be "We didn't negotiate with terrorists. We negotiated with the government of Qatar." Positively Clintonian in its parsing. So I guess that in labor disputes, the union doesn't negotiate with management. LAWYERS for the union negotiate with LAWYERS for management. I'm getting nostalgic for "It depends on what the meaning of 'is' is."

excellent points. of course the POINT is to empty Guantanamo, so this pretend swap is helping to effectuate that. I am heartened to see CNN had this guy’s questionable desertion/AWOL status covered, and I think even the WAPO had an article about how his fellow soldiers are POd about this. I think THIS is something that the rank and file American can “get”. And yeah, it also got the VA scandal covered over in the news cycle.

Thank you for the good grade.

I agree that O’barky should be impeached and removed from office. Let’s see
how comfortable he is in solitary confinement in a Federal penitentiary

a less polite version, making it a command instead of a question is : ca’llate {pronounced CAY a tay} which means SHUT UP! Double L in Spanish sounds like Y.

yeah, I wondered how that could happen. honestly, this seems to me something that the rank and file can see, on their own, as outrageous, not just conservatives outraged.

We have been watching the original A Team, in Spanish and Mr. T says CALLATE! pretty often. I keep waiting to see pity the fool show up in the captions.
I'm also furious about the deserter being brought back and not to trial. At the church group meeting yesterday, no one was aware of his history and jaws around the table dropped when I told them why this was a very bad and illegal thing that this _resident had done.

I was once so bored in a hotel room in Germany that I watched Pauly Shore in "Son-in-Law" in German.

while the MSM is saying a BIT about his past, it’s not totally out there yet. I was sending my SIL a bunch of articles about it, she was skeptical even before hearing the boatload of bad.

do you get Univision or Telemundo? watching those are good practice also.
My dearly departed dad who spoke not a word of Spanish LOVED watching some comedy shows on Spanish when he was at our house. I always thought it was hilarious that this “no hablo” polack was sitting there roaring at the slapstick latinos! Speaking of “no hablo” did I mention that there is a pickup parked around my place of employment who has that as a personalized license plate?

May 31, 2014 – A day that will live in Perfidy

One day after the formal commemoration of Memorial Day, and less than a week from the 70th anniversary of the great battle to reclaim Europe in World War II, Obama again stains the Office and dishonors the brave men & women who have fought for our Country...

also, did you see the dad said something about the team meeting him I think in Germany were all “handpicked” by them. I am wondering what is going on with the debrief team and what was the dad trying to convey to his son there? the whole phraseology was stilted and weird, not what an American dad would be saying to his long lost son, IMO.
