Donna Brazile: Soldiers Aledging Bergdahl are a PR Campaign by Republicans
National Review Online ^ | 6/8/14 | Patrick Brennan

Posted on 06/09/2014 4:49:22 PM PDT by originalbuckeye

Democratic strategist and former Gore-campaign manager Donna Brazile said this morning that veterans accusing recently returned Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl of desertion are part of a “PR campaign by Republicans.”

After fellow panelist Ana Navarro noted that members of Bergdahl’s unit had consistently expressed concerns about the circumstances of his capture, Brazile said it was an effort to “muddy the waters” surrounding the prisoner deal.

Quickly criticized for the comment by her fellow panelists on CNN, she said that she’d never impugn the testimony of a veteran, but stood by her comments.

“That’s all they do . . . all they do is focus their vitriol, their rage, against this president,” Brazile said. “If the president this morning had scrambled eggs and bacon, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast. If the president had cereal and fruit, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast.”

In the early days after Bergdahl was released, a former Bush administration official, Richard Grenell, reportedly was involved to some extent in helping soldiers who’d served with the sergeant connect with the media


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; Extended News; Foreign Affairs; Front Page News; Government; News/Current Events; War on Terror
KEYWORDS: bergdahl; deserter; traitor
So Brazile believes that the soldiers who served with Bergdahl are lying about his desertion because they hate Obama?? REALLY? When Bergdahl went missing, the story came out that he had deserted. The Left is definitely becoming unhinged!

“If the president this morning had scrambled eggs and bacon, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast. If the president had cereal and fruit, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast.”

Actually, if the alleged president had scrambled eggs and bacon, I would express surprise. Bacon is not Halal.

Is that, ‘knee_pads Brazile’, saying this?

I guess when one was a part of the most moral presidency in the history of this country, then one would have standing to question anyone...

Were these guys supposed to wait for Matt Lauer and Anderson Pooper to call them and give them a chance to fill in some gaps in what was already officially known about the deserter?

It's just like Rush said.

Every issue is a soap opera for these clowns. The seriousness of the issue, or its impact to the nation as a whole, doesn't matter.

Only Donna and his cook cares about what the President had for breakfast. Have no idea myself, but my best guess is that it was not brain food.

Obama could run over someone on purpose and kill them and Donna Brazile would make excuses for it.

Yes. Each posting where I list myself twice is a vanity posting. Perhaps I forget to add vanity. But where I am posting an article by someone, I am listed as the poster and they are listed as the author. Is that what you’re asking?

I've had the chance to speak personally with one of them.

He's a fine young man, the kind of man that keeps the Army functioning despite the best efforts of the left to cripple it.

I spit on Donna Brazile.

Republicans couldn’t round up steer in a trailer and most of what they try looks like them rounding up katz.

They sure didn’t co-ordinate 6 guys who, to a man, say the same thing...

The person who actually helped coordinate getting these soldiers in front of cameras was Brad Chase, a communications strategist at Capitol Media, and definitely NOT a Republican.

Nice catalog of ridiculous (but true according to the Media) assertions to justify the trade of 5 of the most evil men on earth for (at the very least) a deserter!

I saw that diatribe by that “Crisco in the can”.The chair she sat in needed sideboards. Her rear end needs a “Wide Load” sign.
She made as much sense as a six ounce rock rattling in a five gallon bucket.
Now I’ll go back to my saucer of milk. ;^}

The Soldiers in Bergdahl’s unit went out into hostile territory to try and rescue him. They didn’t stop and show their political party cards before they went out. They just went out facing the chance that they could be killed.
The American Press has set a new low for themselves with their stories about Bergdahl’s fellow Soldiers. Let me give you the only thing that matters about the Soldiers in Bergdahl’s unit.

They went out into hostile territory to try and get him back.

I don’t give a s**t if their brass was polished. I don’t give a s**t if they didn’t have Patton as their leader. I do give a s**t about whether they had the courage and commitment to go out into hostile territory and risk their life to try to get back one of their own. They had that by the truckload.
Shame on those press people questioning these Soldiers.

I like Iowahawk’s tweet on this.

A: “Bergdahl was a deserter”

B: “How can you say that? Who would dare to sully the reputation of a brave and gallant American soldier in the field?”

A: “His platoon mates”

B: “You gonna believe those baby-killers?”
