Skip to comments.TALIBAN SWAPPIN' BLUES (White House scarambles desperately for a solution)
Posted on 06/05/2014 11:49:07 AM PDT by Lazamataz
It is hard to believe, but even after five years of ruling, the Obama administration still reeks of incompetence. It behaves like a novice administration.
Every excuse was thrown out, every justification was made, as -- in an increasing panic -- the Obama administration saw what they viewed as a probable publicity coup, become one of the examples of 'terrible optics' we read about.
What this absurd thrashing about seems to show us is that the VA scandals were really hurting Obama. It shows us that nothing -- NOBODY -- will stand in the way of Obama when he has embraced the wrong choice (recall that the Afgan CIA Station Chief was outed by Obama in the days leading up to this fiasco of a trade). It shows us the Obama administration expected this to go well, though I'm not sure how it would have worked like that. In their panic, the Obama Administration shows us that this Taliban/Bergdahl episode is genuinely redounding to their negative. And finally, it reinforces the role of the "news" media as the new Propaganda Ministry, as they sound like the lawyer who famously argued,
Your honor, my client did NOT take possession of his neighbors bucket. Second, there was ALREADY A HOLE in the bucket when my client took possession. Thirdly, my client NEVER put a hole in the bucket. And fourth, my Client repaired the hole before returning the bucket.
LOL! Not hard to believe by any stretch of the imagination. Darn thing is that as clueless as they are, they’re still causing incalcuable damage to this country. I knew this clown was inept before he actually got the nomination.
No great revelations in this one, kiddies. This was more or less a 'collect the references in one spot' article.
"Their stupid EXEMPT Congress will be the death of them all."
Next Obama attempt expected out of the chute:
“Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers were space aliens from which he had to escape before they could conduct cruel medical experiments on him.”
One would think, with five years on the job, the Current Regime would at least start to get SOMETHING right.
The only thing they have been able to do is deliver enough spin to get re-elected. Just about everything else shows either they do not have a clue, or they are so adamantly self-righteous and doctrinaire that appeals to logic and reason simply cannot penetrate. Between being almost totally tone-deaf and not having anybody on the job that can point to relevant experience that could have prepared them, they end up giving incompetence a bad reputation.
Even their intentions aren’t very good.
Great points sir. Especially about how the VA scandal, needing to be dealt with, was surpassed by this Bergdahl scandal.
But how is this possible? How can you diffuse one scandal by creating another? No matter. Obama does it, and it works for him. Of all the hundreds of impeachable scandals since 2009, he gets away with them all.
Next after that one: Bergdahl was abducted by Leprechauns who exclaimed they were after his Lucky Charms.
Oh, don’t anyone fret, we’ll be hearing from these 5 terrorists that this administration just released. There will be a mass kidnappings of American citizens, all over the world. By the time this is over, every American citizen, any where in the world will be in danger of kidnapping, to exchange them for some more GITMO resident. These Muslims will even try and kidnap a “HIGH AMIRICAN POLITICIAN” or an “AMERICAN AMBASSADOR” to exchange for the blind sheik. You watch my words, this will happen.
I misspelled scarmable, as scaramble.
According to Bergdahl, his fellow soldiers were “teabaggers and fringers, and I just couldn’t tolerate being in their intolerant company,” he sniffed.
It’s racism...the only thing they have left to spin with.
Yeah, this one ain’t going so well for BO. WaPo independently confirmed through Afghani villagers what Bergdahl’s platoon-mates have been saying all along - Bergdahl sought out the Taliban. Then TIME spoke directly to the Taliban and confirmed that - Hell Yeah! - they were now inspired to capture more of our guys and not only that but also they would work hard to get a really big fish next time.
That one doesn’t even pass the Laugh Out Loud test! The Taliban would very likely be unaware of this law, and not to care what Congress thought.
Hmmmmm, in normal-land, but don’t forget....the Taliban is inside the building, Laz ;)
Not really, they don’t care. Congress will threaten and warn til they’re blue in the face but the dictator knows he can’t be stopped.
What me worry!
How come everyone in that pic has a weapon except the dude with the crock pot?
Is he gonna blow something up or has he been cooking goat-n-leeks all day and they’re all a-fixin’ to sit down for lunch?
Goat-n-leeks is pretty good, by the way.
Obama administration 'to offer Taliban 5 Gitmo prisoners in exchange for last Afghanistan POW Bowe Bergdahl who has spent four years captive'
Heard 0h0m0 say that he’s never surprised by controversies “whipped up in Washington”. This is all a joke to him. What a condescending (fill in the blank).
You miss the point completely.
The Obama Administration never tries to get things right.
Instead, Obama Administration always try to get away with something or put one over on the American people.
That is the core principal for this President and all else follows from that principal
Yeah, the timing on that is suspicious. Wonder how long it will take for the GOP congress to put 2 and 2 together and come up with "criminal leak engineered to remove guy opposed to illegal deal with terrorists".
Not only is the Tollybahn inside the building, I am coming more to believe that HE is one of them if not in actuality, then in spirit as a fellow traveler.
I can’t wait to see all the psycopaths that Birddog served with, tonight on The Kelly File.
Thanks for documenting these ludicrous explanations. I keep wanting to wake up from this bad dream.
It’s the fire supression concept. To kill a big fire you blow it up to starve it of oxygen. In this case the blow up is the trade for a lost and captive child.
You did more than collect the information in one spot. Until I read this I didn’t see what a huge political disaster this Bergdal thing is for the president, and hence, the thrashing around. I hope he wears himself out thrashing, has a meltdown and resigns. That’s a perfect solution for me, and I’m a believer.
Let’s add to that nice summation: Was the “outing” of the Kabul CIA Station Chief an accident, or a planned act by ValJar types to get him out of the way? Perhaps he was opposing this action behind the scenes?
I initially took the idea that Benghazi horror originated in a failed hostage operation where Ambassador Stevens was to be taken hostage so he could be traded for the blind sheik with a rain of salt. However, seeing how a fake “prisoner exchange” of the deserter Bergdahl was used to provide a cover story for release of the Taliban’s general staff, it now appears that the
Stevens speculation was correct.
Solution? Trade away the islamoNazi- in-Chief next time we want one of our deserters back.
So, if a local criminal takes a hostage and demands the release of notorious killers on death’s row or the hostage will be killed, then the stated policy of our police is to release notorious killers?
Do I have Obama’s thinking right on this?
We do deal with terrorists if it’s a hostage death threat....that’s the policy?
Someone should tell that to the survivors of Leon Klinghoffer and the Achille Lauro owners. Won’t they be surprised.
All of those smart people in DC who are supposedly outraged by Obama's excesses should be burning the midnight oil reading the Constitution to see if there's anything in that document besides impeachment that could get Obama out of office.
Mental health issues?
25th Amendment could help.
Thanks for the compilation from the mouthpieces of POSOTUS, the Liar-in-Chief.
The GOP should all dress up as the Taliban and then President Obama would negotiate with them.
The only solution for these morons is to try Bergdahl for desertion...which, of course, directly contradicts their assertions that he is a hero.
OK, so maybe there’s no way out...except for another major-league phuck-up that draws attention away from this.
What a damned loser the dumb-schits installed into office. I still can’t believe it.
When he and ValJar make a plan the notion of checking with experts and outsiders for input can’t be brooked; recall the way Obama once lamented that being the Premier of China would be much easier, owing to his greater power.
Recall also that early in his first term three different members of his cabinet went around openly quoting Chairman Mao, and his EPA guy on camera lauded a Roman tactic of HANGING as an example to others the first innocent townsman of lands they’d first conquered —”And then everything tended to go smoothly after that !” yuk yuk
Once they’d made a plan NOTHING can sway them from it, apparently.
They’re just not “that into” the democracy thang.
Excellent! Thank you, dear Laz!
Which demonstrates a huge, whopping blind spot of this administration. Release muslim killers who will one day, I am sorry to say, kill more Americans.
We are thinking exactly along the same lines and that scares the hell out of me.
Laz, do you mind making the sometimes satisfied list 251? Thanks.
Looks like they set the record for speed on that spin cycle. Every 4-6 hours we hear a different spin story that sometimes even contradicts the previous spin story.
They also killed a whole lot of Shiite Muslims.
Can you imagine how pissed 0 bummer will be when he reads all this in the paper or hears it on tv? Someone will have to load his teleprompter full of more lies for a speech.
Could have been scamable.
right on!!!...except for a few good men living up to their oath's and not the stand down order....it would have happened!
The fraud Soetoro has no clothes.
Obama could rape senators babies on the white hut lawn and get away with it because....Now think about it.. YOU CANT IMPEACH THE 1ST BLACK PRESIDENT....Period: End Cease Stop:(lol..it would cause a civil war!
