Thad Cochran Praises Bergdahl Via Twitter, Then Deletes Tweet
Breitbart ^

Posted on 06/04/2014 5:36:00 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) praised the return of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl on Twitter on May 31 but has deleted the Tweet since then.

“Welcome home, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl,” Cochran tweeted from his official U.S. Senate Twitter account @SenThadCochran. “A grateful America thanks you for your service.”

The tweet was still publicly available as of Wednesday morning when Breitbart News took a screenshot of it. But sometime between then and now, Cochran has deleted the tweet.

President Barack Obama has faced intense criticism for the deal he cut to release Bergdahl. The White House released five Taliban fighters from Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention center in exchange for Bergdahl’s release.

This campaign is a joke. Cannot believe he’s going to now cost us more money.

It was his Mistress / RNC Handler that tweeted, the only tweets thad is making these days is the little birdies that circle his senile head.

Yep, you’re probably right. Cochran reminds me of some older businessmen I recall working with in the 1980s - lingering past retirement age and totally clueless about those “computer” things that someone put in their offices. More than one of them used to lapse into “dictaphone” mode when leaving messages on that newfangled voicemail, too. Funny and sad, all rolled together.

Levin just said a few minutes ago that he thinks Cochran “isn’t all there”.

I guess the RINOS would prop up a dead body to vote the way they want -of course, so would the rats. In fact they’ve got one as Senate leader.

Thad Cochran has no idea what Twitter is. What a joke.

Hahaha, there was an entire generation who simply stopped at the television remote control (once there were enough channels for that to matter). My father was one of them. The first time he wielded a computer mouse, he picked it up, pointed it at the screen, and started clicking, just like with the remote. He never did figure out how to make it move on the screen, or where to click. It was fascinating, and this was a smart man. He had simply completely checked out of technology a good 25 years before that.

Well, a good bit of what comes out of it resembles what comes out of a bird!

Sad really that they don’t retire and go home and rest, after the age of 70.

Mississippi, don’t follow in the tracks of Nevada and return another senile old man to the Senate. Even though Cochran is not vile like Reid, he doesn’t belong in the Senate any more.

One better - my Dad retired as a banker right when ATM machines began to become mainstream - to this day, he doesn't have a card and carries cash or cashes checks when he needs an influx.

And voicemail is still an "answering service"

I barely survived showing my mother how to pay at the pump. She brags about it, and acts as if she possesses secret knowledge. The disconnect is amazing. She has friends with smart phones, and my dad started getting emails from friends he swore wouldn’t even know what that was. It’s very individualized.

Heh... Thad Cochran has been in the senate since Joe Walsh joined The Eagles!

Hmmm, that makes me want to compare the two. I liked the Eagles more pre-Walsh, but I don’t know if I can blame Walsh for it, and they were still really good. Cochran is better than a Mississippi Democrat, but that’s a low bar. I liked some Walsh stuff post Eagles ...... eh, long story short, out with Cochran.

You should check out the “ history of the eagles “ that’s been playing on show time or HBO. Starts with Henley and Frey in high school and goes all the way to 2012.

As for Walsh, he gives thanks to the eagles for saving his life in 1993. He was an absolute train wreck on a death spiral after the breakup of the band. The manager and Don Felton showed up at his house and hauled him to rehab. He had one year to get ready for the Hell Freezes Over tour in 1994. Been clean and sober every since.

Good material for a campaign flyer.

If Cochran wins, he’ll serve 6 months and then strike a deal with his buddy, the Governor, to appoint Haley Barbour to that seat.

Proving the GOPe is just as out of touch as the Democratic Part.

So true....and funny too because it is a paradigm shift for them in a big way. I appreciate the effort they they put into trying to adopt and adapt so I am patient with the questions and then the bragging when they “get it”

Need 2 years before he resigns for that to happen. If he resigns before that we just have a special election.

It is very individualized. My mom has a smart phone. She got it to be able to IM my kids. They talk all during the day. Ditto with my MIL. MIL lives on facebook. My dad uses the computer to play solitaire and look up parts for tractors he’s overhauling, he’s not into the smart phone thing. Not that he couldn’t. If he’s got something to say to you it’s gonna take longer than an IM though. LOL. He and my mom are about the Cochran’s age. Married same year and everything. My dad’s kid brother couldn’t be bothered with all that stuff though.

But even my dad isn’t as sharp as he was 15 years ago. He’s ~Thad’s age. He’s very sharp for his age though. But there’s no way he’s got the intellectual energy anymore of even a 60yr old. He thinks Thad needs to go fishin’.
