New WH spin on Taliban 5 swap: Hey, it was Hagelís call (under the bus!)
Hotair ^

Old and busted: The Taliban 5 swap was a demonstration of authority by a Commander in Chief who isn’t afraid to act and make the final decision. New hotness: Hey, Chuck Hagel had the final call on the swap!

Obama isn’t the “Teflon Don”, He is the “Detour Democrat”...

All his blame gets detoured to someone else under him...

If you throw a member of the military overboard, would it be better to say that he was thrown under the APV? Just wondering...

False reason #1: Bergdof was ill
False reason #2: Bergdof was gonna be killed
False reason #3: Chuck said to do it

And coming soon...
False reason #4: We were dead broke.

I have no doubt Hagel approached obama and said, why don’t you just blame this mess on me, that’s what me and the rest of your administration is here for; and we love you.

Chuck Hagel was always expendable. The only question was “When?”

Apparently now is a good time.

But the Current Occupant is spending the last few remaining assets he has so fast, he will be politically bankrupt pretty quickly.

Bunker mentality setting in....

It sure is setting in.

Obama is going to become more obstinate and he doesn’t care what people think or who he hurts, including Democrats.

Dumbest career move you ever made, Chuck. Becoming a member of this administration. You should have ran in the opposite direction the very minute they offered you this job. Now your name is mud.

I can hear Paul Shanklin singing to the tune of the Rolling Stones’ “Under my Thumb”, with lyrics that start, “Under My Bus...”

Wait! Wait! Hagel's off the hook! New story! Turban Durbin says the real reason is that the decision was only made the day before it happened.

I wouldn't rest too easy, Chuckie. You can go from off the hook to back on it in a blink of Dear Leader's mascara-ed eye.

Ooooo. Bad news. The Durbin story has been abandoned. Barbara Boxer now says the Taliban were released because Chris Christie likes donuts.

I did not see him in the rose garden with the bearded guy and his wife.

Yo, BO, but you were out there with the parents taking bows, and taking credit for the adoring press when you (in your stupidity) though the swap was a winner.
Now you cut & run and say the buck never got to you?
The fraud that you are can not penetrate your narcissism to even challenge the beliefs of your lame brain.

If the Osama raid went bad he would have air-brushed himself out of the ready room picture.

Come to think of it, he was air-brushed in.
