HAILEY, Idaho — An Idaho county commissioner held a press conference in the hometown of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl this week to tell reporters and outsiders to leave the town and the Bergdahl family alone.

The Times-News reported that Blaine County Commissioner Larry Schoen said people should stop attacking Bergdahl, his family and the people of Hailey for standing by the former prisoner of war.

Schoen said the town only wanted to see the local man reunited with his parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, after spending five years as a prisoner of the Taliban in Afghanistan....

At least Sergeant Bergdahl doesn’t have a $10 million dollar bounty on his head, or at least not that I’ve heard of.

The town's never been the same since they wanted to celebrate that deserter.

Guess you could say the place has been deserted.

There is more ugliness embodied in that picture than in *both* of my ex-wives.

Any questions directed towards an Obamanite are “attacks.”
Any doubts about how he wound up with the enemy is “hate.”
It’s no wonder Bergdahl’s hometown is dazed & confused.
Their ‘hero’ reminds the country of our feckless CIC, Zero.

Thou ArT Not ALLOWED to report anything that could make the Gay Media Messiah Obama look bad.

To do so could end your career.

How can it be that in the era of the Internet, smart phones, streaming video, ... a "News blackout" is even possible?

Recall, for example, that the DRUDGE REPORT broke the Monica story while the MSM did nothing.

Is silence not taken as consent?

Applying technology is always an option.

Held a press conference to tell the press that he’s tired of the press...

Good plan. The last thing “we” want is for the public to learn the truth about Bergdahl and his parents.

Putting bad light on Obama is a hate crime.

Maybe the commissioner should spend more time keeping an eye on that peeping-tom pervert Bob Berghahl so his community is safe from creepy old men.

The last thing this town wants the press to know is how there mostly from Cal. and are left wing nut jobs. This is a town of ski bums, pot heads and freaks from the left coast. Can't we all love in peace and harmony and worship our boy King Obobo.

Preferrable headline:

Bergdahls urged to leave Bergdahl’s home town.

I actually agree with this thought. Whatever Bergdahl did, he needs to be judged by the military, not in the court of public opinion. It is not HIS fault that Obama gave away 5 terrorists, that is OBAMA. Bergdahl is a pawn in this game, and while it was important to point out how badly the ADMINISTRATION vetted their decision, it was never about Bergdahl, it is about Obama.
