Hillary Clinton: It 'doesn't matter' if Bowe Bergdahl deserted his unit
Examiner.com ^ | 6/9/2014

Posted on 06/09/2014 5:40:53 PM PDT by castlegreyskull

In a video posted Sunday at the Gateway Pundit, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told ABC News' Diane Sawyer it doesn't matter if Bowe Bergdahl deserted his unit.

“If you look at what the factors were going into the decision, of course there are competing interests and values. And one of our values is we bring everybody home off the battlefield the best we can. It doesn't matter how they ended up in a prisoner of war situation,” Clinton said, coming perilously close to her now infamous "what difference does it make" line.

The difference is that you released 5 top taliban commanders in exchange for this treasonous bastard.

Thats what the big deal is.

And that you don’t see it, Hitlery, proves you are unfit to reside in the White House.

It mattered to at least six soldiers KIA looking for his sorry ass. It matters to their families. It matters to the soldiers he served with and it matters to the majority of Americans. IT MATTERS.

I think he should have been brought home too. However, trading an ant for him is unacceptable. He needs to go and be held accountable for being a Deserter.

Who cares how Vince Foster died?

That he had NO DIRT on the bottom of his shoes.

That the gun was in the wrong hand.

That the gun had no serial numbers and was assembled from many different guns (strong indication of throw gun).

That he had carpet fibers ALL OVER him.

That blood pooling indicated a post-mortem move of the body.

AND OVER TWENTY OTHER WEIRD THINGS.

As much as I loathe Obama, I can honestly say that America is safer with him at the helm than Hillary. With that being said, we are living in interesting times.

What a piece of work.

Where was Hillary Clinton 9/11/12? And the days before? And after?

Bergdahl was never a POW.

She would be worse then Obama. Hillary was the architect of Obama's foreign Policy. And look how well that is going. She also wanted single payer health care.

What matters is there are now 6 (not 5) Jihadists on the loose (but I’m not supposed to use the word “Jihadists”. Terrorists find it offensive).

From day one, the Taliban were asking for 15 prisoners to be released from Gitmo and something like $5million.

It was just a matter of haggling on price.

Hillary has a tin ear...and this will keep her from the nomination.

And she's old and fugly, too.

I hope and pray that Hillary never becomes president. If she is president, that’s at least four and probably eight more years of liberal Alinskyite agendas and policies put in place. And the only bulwark would be if Republicans can maintain control of both houses of Congress.

I’ve heard that 2016 Senate races are not favorable to the GOP. 2014 looks very good, but the Dems. could well take back the Senate in ‘16.

People keep telling me she will be the next president. I don’t see it at all. I bet she will trail Warren or Biden by a lot, then she will try to save some dignity by coming up with a medical problem, forcing her to exit the primary race.

I wonder if she would send help to a distant and foreign land that was under siege by the Taliban?

Say like maybe, Cleveland?

I am terrified of her ever being President. Even if she was trying to serve America well, I think her incompetence trumps any good intentions she would ever have. Her evilness would run the nation to its death.

She said she was ‘dead broke’, when she left the White House in 2001. That was earlier this morning.

What she’s mispeaking about THIS TIME is that it really DOES matter that he deserted, because the whole scheme is meant to demoralize our troops and the public.

this deserter.

That’s the difference.

Oh sorry.

Btw, she was discussing her book tour when she mentioned dead broke. My idiot sister in law is going to the signing in Austin. She plans to work on Hillary’s campaign in 2016. This came as good news to us, since she currently has no job and makes no effort to get one. She worked on 2008 campaign. When Hillary finally conceded, my sister in law looked like her mother just died.

After all, Bill first introduced the concept when he said, “at this point, what difference does it make what we did in the Oval Office?”

And Hillary nodded and said, well yeah, we got to the top of the heap, take the spoils Bubba.

Take the spoils, Hillary.

What a witch Hitlery is. It would be different if we were bringing Bowe Bergdahl home to swing from a rope from the highest tree in the country. But, some idiots out there(leftists) see him as a hero. Even George Washington tried to get Benedict Arnold home so he could be hung, not made a hero.
