Obama on Bergdahl: “a unanimous decision among my principals in MY government“
Hotair ^ | Jazz Shaw

Posted on 06/07/2014 11:51:01 AM PDT by chessplayer

The President sat down for an outdoor interview with NBC’s Brian Williams during his trip to Normandy this week and, predictably, the subject of the Bergdahl swap came up. After what was essentially a repeat of his previous talking points – many of which have proven to be dubious at best, if not outright lies, even according to Democrats – he summoned up a new way to describe how he decided to not involve the usual, key Congressional players in the process. It comes at around the 50 second mark in the video to follow, but here’s the key quote, which follows his declaration that he’d do it all over again if he had to.

Oh well, we will all just sit around and gripe and nothing will be done about it as we continue to slouch towards the end of the American Experiment.

We need to start planning mass celebrations the day that thug moves out of the White House. Someone should create a website counting down the minutes until his estimated day to move out. It should be a day of great celebration. When the libs try to rewrite history to make the thug look good, it will be more difficult to overcome if there were mass celebrations when he moves out.

And those that think he is not moving are wrong. It would be like this thug trying to overthrow our government. There would be civil disobedience like they’ve never seen. His ass will be moving and moochelle ass will be packing too.

Yeah, I know hildabeast may get elected but it would just about be impossible to be worse than the sorry bastard in office.

He’s a typical Communist..he believes that HE controls the Govt..he doesn’t want to be a President, to listen to the people, he thinks he’s a King..and that is the fault of the media who has hyped him so much and kissed his ass for so many years he knows he can get away with ANYTHING, including murder(Benghazi). I think once Benghazi happened and he got away with it he knew he was invincible

That’s interesting, because one of his principals was reported just this morning to have said she didn’t agree with the action that he took. And if I recall from the discussion that Fox and Friends had with Gov. Huck this morning, none of his top generals agreed with this action.

Deluded and sick.

The first order of business should be an executive order that cancels all Obama’s executive orders. The thug should then be told they’re not the law.

Then we need to change the rules for executive orders.

"I make no apologies for it. It was a unanimous decision among my principals in my government, and a view that was shared by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. This is something I would do again and will continue to do whenever I have an opportunity."

I'm outraged that the JCS agreed to this travesty, if indeed they did. If in fact they did, they're a bunch of dickless wimps.

It’s easy to quickly write off bam’s statement as simple narcisism, but it’s actually a tacit admission, cloaked in his usual brand of double-talk and oblique inference that the federal government has been taken over completely by a rogue element and is no longer a legitimate public institution in any recognizable form. It’s his gang now.

In light of the lawlessness of this Regime, it would not surprise me if he refuses to turn over power at the end of his term - a declaration of "National Emergency" and assumption of dictatorship supported by his Storm Troopers in DHS.

Maybe so but I believe there are a few republicans that would push for impeachment. Republicans are more concerned about offending the black plague in office right now than they would be Hillary. Besides, Hillary has pals like john mclame that could work with her.

A lot of people believe in upholding the constitution. There would be mass civil disobedience if his and mooochelle’s azzes aren’t sent packing.

They need the military to stay in power. Most enlisted cannot stand his sorry ass and wouldn’t use force on the American people. They certainly wouldn’t do it for very long. His sorry ass will be leaving.
