The president didnt care about it enough to make a simple phone call
A group of politicians efforts to secure the release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican jail paid off Friday night. California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher says President Obama was AWOL throughout the process.
The Republican Congressman told The Washington Times on Saturday that he and California RepublicanRep. Ed Royce, former New MexicoGov. Bill Richardson, and Arizona RepublicanRep. Matt Salmon took it upon themselves to fight for Mr. Tahmooressi when President Obama did not.
The president, who is also the commander in chief, didnt do his job, Mr. Rohrabacher said. There is a lack of concern for this man, for this American hero who served our country. As commander in chief he showed a total disdain and non-interest in an American hero who served us in Afghanistan and a total disregard for the fact that he was suffering.
Mr. Rohrabacher said that while the Counsel General in Tijuana and members of congress were mobilized to try to save Mr. Tahmooressi, Mr. Obama had gone AWOL in the battle.
The president not stepping forward was a slap in the face to veterans, Mr. Rohrabacher said. The president didnt care about it enough to make a simple phone call.

Obama’s goal is to so demoralize the military, that none will enlist. Simple, and 100% accurate.
Now if he'd just flee to Canada...
Who does he think was encouraging Mexico to keep him locked up?
I hear you, or maybe Kenya.
Another example of Obola detachment
It is just the real Obama showing.
He is a gay, Muslim, American-hating, Commie POS.
Someday, I’ll tell you what I really think about him.
Maybe he couldn’t find it on the menu or didn’t know how to pronounce it ...
I have a feeling that Barry is afraid of Mexico. He probably thinks that if he pisses them off, they’ll stop allowing illegal aliens and Islamofascists to cross the border into the U.S.
Rep. Rohrabacher does know that Obama is a radical Muslim and an enemy of the United States, right? I’m just checking here. There’s no longer a “maybe” in this equation, this is what Democrats put into office so you can keep saying “he didn’t do this” or “he does that” when the bottom line is we have the enemy in the nations highest office and nobody is doing a damn thing about it.
Active Duty ping.
Obama and the Mexican authorities are made for one another.
I don't know who I find more repugnant.
Why should Obama care about a soldier who is white and isn’t a muslim sympathizing traitor?
Hussein Obama does more for illegals than he does for our own.
But Bergdahl was labeled a hero by the administration.
And the MSM slept.
Of course he didn’t.
It’s why most of us were despondent on election day watching Romney give his wimpy, ‘we love democrats!’ concession speech after having trounced his republican opponents.
Obama’s character has not changed one iota.
Rush knows it, that’s why he’s relevant.
Anyone who didn’t know it, I don’t care if he’s a psychiatrist, is guilty of thinking like a 15 year old girl with a crush on a juvenile delinquent.
Obola will learn of Rohrabacher’s plight next week when the NYT reports on it on page 19.
Actually, I think Obama wants to turn the military over to gays and trannies.
“Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is dead on the mark, 0bama didn’t lift a finger to get this Marine back.”
That’s right, But what can you expect from a physcal and moral coward.
