Skip to comments.Candy Crowley to McCain: Was Bergdahl “Less Worthy of Rescuing” Than You as a POW (Video)
Posted on 06/08/2014 3:18:48 PM PDT by PoloSec
Today on CNNs State of the Union, Candy Crowley compared former POW John McCain with the traitor and deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
She actually had the audacity to ask Sen. McCain if Bergdahls life was less worthy than his. While retelling the stories of Bergdahls desertion and conversion to Islam Crowley asked, Does that make this young man less worthy of rescuing from his circumstances than the young John McCain as a POW?
Via The Right Scoop:
Whatever you may think of McCains career as a Republican senator, its reprehensible to make a comparison between his captivity and Bergdahls desertion. When McCain was given the opportunity to leave the torture camp and go home in order to help his torturers propaganda campaign, he refused, saying he wouldnt go unless every soldier captured before him were released as well. Meanwhile, six and possibly more soldiers died looking for Bergdahl after he walked out on them.
That Crowley would even dare ask such a question shows how little they understand or respect the military.
Question written by the Obama administration or Hillary campaign.
That’s what he gets for appearing on CNN.
Crowley is just a paid Democrat liar.
Crowley’s question shows how ignorant she is. Pure-D-ignorant.
Don’t really care for McCain, but this is over the top.
To his eternal credit, John McCain flat refused multiple offers by the NV to release him from captivity and allow him to go home in order to provide a propaganda victory for the NV.
Unlike McCain and some of the other so called “R’s”, you wouldn’t catch me WATCHING a show of this caliber much less appear on it.
Isn’t that question worthy of just looking at her, shaking your head, take off the microphone and leave the set without saying a word?
Another reason that if one were to appear they should demand a copy of the entire uncut tape of the prerecorded show so they couldn’t ‘hide’ a scene such as above - OR have my own person recording it.
Can’t you just hear the LIVs? Yeah, how about that Mccain?
God has abandoned this country. It’s stupid beyond belief.
She must have had a few visits to the WH in recent days.
Really, what a despicable thing to say.
Perfect response, F15Eagle
uhhh HELL YES!!!!
The cheapest of shots, the answer is obvious to everyone but she knows it is also a gotcha question to have to answer in a public interview, when it is about yourself versus the subject.
Whatever you think of McCain, he would never want his fellow soldiers and all Americans to be put at risk in order to be freed from enemy captivity.
I can’t stand McCain but Crowley is a disgusting pig for asking that question.
What an ignoramus and bitch Crowley had to be to ask that. It wasn’t just McCain, but around 600 POWs who were released at the end of US military involvement and after the so-called Paris peach accords had been signed.
And I don’t recall hearing that any of the 600 or so US POWs in Vietnam just walked away from their duty stations and sought out the Viet Cong. I think there might have been one such case during the decade long US involvment where a few million US troops served (Garwood).
No comparison between the release of Vietnma POWs and the trading of five top level terrorists for the deserter Bergdahl.
Hey, McVain, , you ASKED for that...
God has abandoned this country. Its stupid beyond belief.
Actually we have abandoned God and are suffering the natural consequences, not the other way around.
We are doing this to ourselves because we have lost our way
This fat b*tch needs to stick a double bacon cheeseburger in her fat trap..I doubt the Taliban would kidnap her, imagine the size of the cage they would need to hold her lard ass
Did we trade five top NVAZ and VC for McCain?
So Crowley was placing a moral equivalence on a Sailor shot down over Vietnam, tortured and placed in captivity by a enemy “country” with a deserter who fled his post to join with a group of terrorists?
McCain should have just said, “When I was in the military a deserter would be court martialed and shot, not returned a conquering a hero.”
No WONDER BenghaziBarrySoebarkah smiled as the words were spoken!

She emailed me this morning a very poignant analysis that only someone knowing language and Islam could ascertain. She wrote:
What none of these media is reporting is that the fathers (SGT Bowe Bergdahls father Bob) first words at the WH were in Arabic those words were bism allah alrahman alraheem which means in the name of Allah the most gracious and most merciful these are the opening words of every chapter of the Quran except one (the chapter of the sword the 9th)
by uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam. There is no question but POTUS knows this.
Candy Crowley AND Bergdahl TOGETHER wouldn’t make a good pimple on McCain’s old, wrinkly a%%.
AND, I am not a fan of his politics either.
Thank you for distinguishing between the POW and the politician.
They wouldn’t survive the PMS, constant bitching and food demands.
It was Admiral Stockdale that ordered all POWs in the Hanoi Hilton to refuse any opportunities to go home unless all POWs were given the same opportunity. McCain was just following orders. Still it's reprehensible to compare the cause of his imprisonment with that of Bergdahl.
I never saw that.
She’s a Demaggot.
And the food demands would be every 5 minutes..the Taliban would go broke
My God how they twist and turn every single event into some unrecognizable glob of goo! The question was never whether or not Bergdahl was worth rescuing. The question is and always should have been, was the price too high?
The answer to that, Candy is yes, yes, and hell yes the price was too high. To unleash five dangerous criminals on the public, to fund the Taliban for years to come, to all but hand over Fort Knox was too much to pay for any single life, ever.
Because now you’re ignoring the lives that will be lost in return for his. How many Candy are acceptable for this one guy, 10, 100, 1000? How many have to die so that Obama could aid and abet the enemy which is what he wanted to do from the beginning.
Stop covering up for Obama!
What was McCain’s response?
McCain erased the good he once did bowing to liberalism throughout his career. He is an idiot and IMO, likely went on that show just so Crowley could get that trial balloon out there.
Candy Crowley....difficult to understand how a fecal pile that big could stay in one piece....
Candy, McCain never trashed the US military or its mission. McCain didn’t accept favors from the enemy
Yes but why do the innocent have to suffer along with the guilty
Obama’s Water Girl - still totin’ that bucket.
Candy Crowley - Jabba the Slut
You hit the nail on the head.!!
How tremendously maddening. How morally confused must these people be to ask something that shallow? Good Lord!
Candy Crowley is an ass.
No one traded 5 terrorist for John McCain
knowing what I know now I certainly would have left him there. :-)
a paid democrat liar is right. Don’t forget during the debate Obama had with Romeny, almost on cue Obama said, “Can you say that a little louder, Candy?” trying to sandbag Romeny on Obama’s failure to call Benghazi a terrorist act.
And the left says the media is fair and balanced, when Obama was using Candy Crowley as his personal tag team partner. She played her part as useful idiot in the end result of the 2012 election. That I am certain.
