Sarah Palin on Bowe Bergdahl: President Obama 'blew it'
Politico ^ | 2 Jun 2014 | JONATHAN TOPAZ

Posted on 06/02/2014 9:47:25 AM PDT by mandaladon

President Barack Obama “blew it again” on foreign policy, Sarah Palin said Monday, slamming the president for the deal that released Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

She cited National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s comments one day earlier that Bergdahl 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,’” the former Alaska governor wrote in a Facebook post. The New York Post has reported that Bergdahl once emailed his parents from Afghanistan saying he was “ashamed to be an American.”

I guess Obama feels that helping the enemy is an honorable thing to do.

Susan Rice saw an Internet video that caused private Bergdahl to riot...

Obama “blowing it again” is a term one might find on a tabloid cover with numerous pictures of men!
Surely she wasn’t thinking in that direction

Well, how about a deal worked out with the Mexicans, to exchange Sgt. Andrew Tehmooressi, for, say, some 36,000 Mexican national convicted felons in this country?

Chances are, we can round up that many within a couple weeks.

Bowe served “with honor and distinction.”

And Obama didn't negotiate with terrorist!

The MSM Palace Guards will repeat these laughable lies again and again!

It takes a truly devoted MSM for Obama to even put forth these two outlandish lies and be taken serious.

Politico writes an article about Sarah Palin speaking out about patriotism and criticizing the muslim in the White House and the Politico leftist commenters come crawling out of the woodwork ranting and raving about her.

Sarah is living rent free in their demented minds. lol

Good, honorable fellow soldiers DIED because of Bergdahl’s dishonorable actions.Here are those killed because of Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion, that we know of so far:

Matthew Martinek
Kurt Curtiss
Clayton Bowen
Morris Walker
Michael Murphrey
Darryn Andrews

Yet Obama’s people say Bergdahl served with honor and distinction.

This is a situation where Obama is trying to take attention away from the VA scandal. So even if he is criticized for this, it is taking the press away from the key issue: The Horrible Handling of the VA Hospitals and treatment of Veterans by the Obama Administration.

Sara talks obozo’s language. She doesn't use her middle finger to scratch her nose or display in some way or other to the public to “show her anger and displeasure of the American people. She doesn't name her dog “Sunny”, which in reality refers to obozo’s Suni muslim connections, his branch of the muzzy “religion.”

obozo thinks he's slick and cunning. We the People know Sarah can top him any day when she feels like slapping him upside his head with a cutting remark, an astute observation. GO, SARAH, GO!

Just-what-I-was going to say. Everything this guy does is 100% intentional. This is another scam whose sole purpose was to help the enemy, another case of High Treason that the RINO party will once again do absolutely nothing about, even when one of these animals he released is involved in another terror attack and/or killing of our troops. If this was a just world this piece of rat filth would be immediately impeached and tried on charges of treason.

With the greatest of respect for Palin, all we have is allegations. Trials in the court of public opinion, mediated by the media, gang aft agley. A call for a Court Martial would be better.

I really wish people would stop treating these like errors in judgement or boo boos...that is NOT helping people understand what is really going on. These aren’t mistakes...there is INTENT involved.

Even a dog distinguishes between being stumbled over and being kicked.

Hi Onyx! :) Nice seeing you out and about here on FR.

As for this soldier....I had to read several articles to get the full picture, along with doing some homework on this guy......I agree with Sarah on this...he wasn’t an American soldier from the get go IMO. And I don’t think much of his parents either.

His release was NOT worth the four TOP leaders of the Taliban etc. being traded for by any means....we know they will not be held in Qutar for long....they have a history of letting these terrorists go.....thus they’ll be killing more American Soldiers in no time. So this guys “freedom” is going to yet cost far more lives in the long run.
