Lawmakers to unveil resolution condemning Obama for Bergdahl prisoner swap
Washington Post ^ | June 11, 2014 | Ed O'Keefe

Four House lawmakers -- two Republicans and two Democrats -- plan to introduce a resolution condemning President Obama's decision to release five Taliban detainees in exchange for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Reps. Scott Rigell (R-Va.), Reid Ribble (R-Wis.), John Barrow (D-Ga.) and Nick Rahall (D-W. Va.) plan to introduce the resolution later Wednesday, according to a statement obtained first by The Washington Post and aides familiar with their plans.

Condemning the prima donna? Isn’t that “rasis”?

A resolution?

Will this resolution “make sure that this never happens again?”

It had better be “strongly worded” and delivered to the White Hut by a beetle-browed mailman! Grrrrr! That’ll show him.

A resolution condemning the swap?

Impeachment for TREASON!

He has returned 5 top enemy commanders to the enemy which has not surrendered! A blatant overt act of aid to the enemy.

Also: 8 USC § 2339A Providing material support to terrorists

A Congressional resolution condemning something. Right up there with candlelight vigils in terms of effectiveness.

If they don’t call it treason then it’s just a dog and pony show.

Both Holder and Lerner have been held in contempt.
The sergeant-at-arms has been instructed to take
away their birthdays.
But just for 2014. Don’t want to be draconian.

Why?

Perhaps the Republicans want their own distraction from their support of amnesty and the mayhem occurring at the border. The more I look at this Bergdhal swap the more it looks like Obama cooked it up FOR the republicans to distract us knuckle dragging tea partiers who insist the border be secured.

BFD. Spend some time drafting articles of impeachment instead.

When will the US population and the US Congress realize that this jackass is destroying this country and the US position around the world. Under his watch Iraq is going back to the crazies after we spent a trillion dollars, lost 4500 lives, and tens of thousands casualties. Yet his cheerleaders think that a hand smack for each screw-up is ok to keep him in check. He needs to be removed from office, period......

Such resolutions are 100% meaningless actions. Impeachment is the only meaningful response to such deliberate and flagrant law-breaking by a sitting President.

Congress passed 510 resolutions in 2013. Here’s a sampling:

S.Res. 218: A resolution honoring the legacy of A. Philip Randolph and saluting his efforts on behalf of the people of the United States to form “a more perfect union”.

S.Res. 467: A resolution recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Fishermen’s Terminal in the Port of Seattle and celebrating Seattle’s rich maritime heritage and its importance to the United States.

S.Res. 464: A resolution designating June 2014 as “National Aphasia Awareness Month” and supporting efforts to increase awareness of aphasia.

S.Res. 461: A resolution honoring James L. Oberstar as a remarkable public servant who served in Congress with extraordinary dedication and purpose.

S.Res. 455: A resolution designating May 2014 as “Older Americans Month”.

S.Res. 459: A resolution expressing the sense of the Senate with respect to childhood stroke and recognizing May 2014 as “National Pediatric Stroke Awareness Month”.

And almost 500 more similar resolutions.

Oh Yeah, and in 2014 a resolution declaring Obama to be a bad boy for purposely, blatantly and flagrantly breaking Federal law and sending him to bed with only one ice cream cone instead of two for one night.

Republicans will vote for the anti-ice-cream resolution and pretend like they did something that matters, and the Democrats will intensely defend the right of the President to break all the laws he wishes AND to have his extra ice cream cone.

This will be a nice way to make the Dems sweat.

It will force them to vote against Obama. Or if they vote against condemning
the swap, they get nailed by voters. Hee, hee.
