Harry Reid on Bergdahl Deal: ‘What Difference Does It Make?’
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 06/05/2014 | Free Beacon Staff

Posted on 06/05/2014 12:47:26 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Reid calls it 'a big deal over nothing'.

The Democratic Party seems to have a go-to line to reflect apathy for controversial issues plaguing the Obama administration.

Asked about why he seemed to be the only one notified about the deal to retrieve Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl before it was made, Harry Reid bristled at the question.

“I’m not sure I’m the only one,” he said. “A big deal over nothing. Is it Friday or is it Saturday? What difference does it make? What difference does it make?”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton infamously snapped, “What difference at this point does it make?” when discussing what motivated the perpetrators of the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2013.

Matters a lot to the families of the men who died because of Bergdahl.

And to Hillary, it matters a lot to the families of the men who were abandoned in Benghazi.

These are just variations of “let them eat cake” — in short: “I don’t care about your little problems”.

Obama traded 5 terrorists for one traitor and the liberals think he got a good deal.

FUHR.

Don’t forget he thinks we American(tourists)smell bad—the great unwashed.

Please God rescue us from the horrible, incompetent people.

Folks tried to in 2010--but could not overcome the preloaded voting machines run by the SEIU.

RE: Vote his dumb as out of office - what difference does it make.

Nevada had the chance to do it in 2010. They opted (again) for Harry Reid over Sharon Angle.

It's getting to the point where I almost expect God to part the heavens, look down and thunder, "ALL RIGHT, ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP!"

Maybe that's what these liberals want - to see God. So they figure they'll just rape civilization so hard, for so long, He's GOT to show up.

Brilliant plan.

The next round of terrorists from Gitmo - let’s release them into one of these traitors’ DC booze-and-schmooze parties.

Let’s see who cares then.

The arrogance of the corrupt 0bama regime and its allies is really breathtaking. I hope there is no mercy shown them when they finally lose their grip on power.

Is this the new liberal talking point, what difference does it make?

So, if anything comes up, anything for which this administration is being criticized for, the answer is what difference does it make?

Hillary and now Harry Reid are setting the standard, that these issues just don’t matter that much, if they say what difference does it make.

Whether the issue is Benghazi, or this absurd prisoner swap, the liberal attempt is to defuse the issue by minimizing it, by saying what difference does it make.

Unbelievable.

Is that the new Demo-rat voter call?
I translate that to “Do we really care”!
They should have taken all those Gitmo prisoners to Quatar
and MH370-ed the plane!
We can fly one of those remote control!

Nevada citizens never really stood a chance against the SEIU’s tactics. People that were union members were fed lots of threats and lies about what would happen if they didn’t vote for Reid.

And the families of loved ones who will die.

Could this mean HE is not sure if he was even notified????

It’s the five freed Terrorist leaders that has me worried.

Does anything make much of a difference to the perennially Koch-headed Harry Reid?

The American people made it clear several years ago that they did not even want Guantanamo’s detainees transferred to a maximum-security prison in the U.S., let alone be freed anywhere in the world to wreak their bloodthirsty evil on innocent people.

And why should we believe that those innocent people will be attacked in other countries when 9/11 proved America was a prime target for Islamofascist terrorism?

I’m worried that more of our troops will die because the Obama-ists freed 5 terrorist leaders and returned them to their homeland and fellow combatants, where they can craft ways kill our people there and abroad. If this isn’t an act of treason, what is?

Dear Harry,

It was “the law of the land” that Barky violated.

It’s the “law of the land” that Barky every time he changes ObamaKare.

Hope you and your demonrat cronies think of that before any of you try using that phrase again.

Mark

I’m convinced that this is a combination of things:
1) Seeing how much he can get away with...
2) Since he’s cleared the “worst of the worst” out of club gitmo, it will be easier to empty it out completely.
3) Most Importantly - It got the VA scandal off the front pages & TV.

Mark

Wait, shouldn’t that headline be “future US Vice President and Hillary’s running mate, Senator Harry Reid...”? Thanks SeekAndFind.

Reid doesn’t care about anyone other than Harry Reid. He is the perfect sociopath, but then again, he’s a Democrat politician. Same thing!

Can you imagine Reid, Pelosi and Obama in Hell together?

The Devil would flee for his life!
