Skip to comments.Out: Bergdahl deal was an Obama triumph. In: Um, Chuck Hagel did it
Posted on 06/10/2014 6:38:25 AM PDT by don-o
The ever-shifting maze of lies and evasions billowing out of the Obama Administration over the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner exchange hits an astonishing new low, as Obama has apparently decided its time to hide under his desk and blame Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel for the whole thing. Thus does a triumph become a disaster in the span of less than ten days. By the end of the week, Obama will be claiming he didnt learn about the Bergdahl swap until he saw people talking about it on a TV news show.
One of the reasons President Hagel is taking so much heat for this deal is that even Democrats in Congress are anywhere from miffed to furious that they were kept in the dark. That does give them room to distance themselves from the Hagel Administration, which most of them are doing. News reports claim Hagel still has staunch defenders in his caucus, but the only ones who ever seem to get quoted are Sen. Reid, Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois (whos still running White House talking points from last week, in which all criticism is partisan, and Republicans who criticize the deal are insufficiently concerned about Sgt. Bergdahls fate) and Rep. Louise Slaughter, who thinks keeping Congress out of the loop was okay because I wouldnt tell 435 people a secret either. Presumably she draws the line at 90.

Child’s Play — Chuckie did it
Well, at least this time the community organizer didn’t blame Bush. Let Transgender Chuckie take the heat.
Don, you can ask the moderator to correct/add an article link, if necessary.
But, I'll add my comment from the last one:
Obama never misses an opportunity to blame the Republicans. After all, Hagel was a Republican.
ping. Again I apologize for flubbing up the other one. We could use a little tweak on the preview function.
On Obama's desk is a sign that reads, "The Bus Stops Here".
John Hayward has done some fine writing about this.
Hagel’s titanic ego drove him and his infinitesimal intellect allowed him to fully meld with these traitorous scum. He deserves whatever misery they heap on him - and then some.
The Emperor has no clothes. The only question is when the media will acknowledge that fact. The most disgusting, lawless, lying, sleazy administration ever, including Grant, Harding and Carter. It doesn’t get any worse than this, except we have to endure two more years of horrible decisions.
Staff Sergeant Hagel as Secretary of Defense may be a bit over his head.
2. Previously consulted with congress 3. Swiftboating 4. It was an oversight, sorry 5. Platoon full of psychopaths 6. Taliban threated to kill 7. "What difference does it make?" 8. Stockholm Syndrome 9. PTSD 10. No evidence converted to Islam, fraternized with Taliban, and declared jihad 11. Physically abused, confined in cage 12. Racism 13. Moderate Taliban 14. Raggedy" platoon 15. "No matter what, to leave an American behind in the hands of people who would torture him, cut of his head, do any number of things" 16. Obama broke unconstitutional law (that he signed) 17. Wasn't only soldier to 'walk off' post 18. Only tenuous link to U.S. deaths 19. PR campaign by Republicans ... to muddy the waters
20. Hagel, NOT Obama, made the final call on #Bergdahl swap, (see also #16)
But when the SHTF ... um ... uh ... um ...... Stand Up Chuck!
Everything, but everything, but everything, you hear or read from the government (including active duty military people) about this Bergdahl business from now on will be a FABRICATED, BS, LIE...Guaranteed!!!
Obama was as mad as hell when he heard about this dreadful Hagel decision on the news—and he won’t stand for it!
The media is thinking (collectively) that the republicans are going to bring impeachment charges.
The republican establishment might be stupid, but they’ll never impeach this guy. The media overplayed its hand with the Clinton impeachment, and they are stuck with this guy
This is what they wanted
ALINSKY RULE 8:
Keep the pressure on. Never let up. Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)
So Hagel has been designated to quiet down Feinstein....
