Amid jubilation Saturday over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from captivity by the Taliban, senior Republicans on Capitol Hill said they were troubled by the means by which it was accomplished, which was a deal to release five Afghan detainees from the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

This SOB just blew a death kiss to all of us.
We don’t negotiate with terrorists?
Just when you think Obama and Friends can damage America further, he goes and does it.
He has a pen, but you have to show ID to get an Obamaphone.
Obama is goading Republicans to impeach so he can play the race card for the November elections.
Might be a good time to pull out those quotes from his book and to begin the anti Alinsky ridicule process. Force Obama’s hand to a point where Republicans can hang everything on the rats.
“Does that mean that they are going to prosecute Bambi or just frown at him?”
Frowning would be uncharacteristically harsh and could be viewed as racist. My guess is that the Republican leadership will slightly dampen their smiles when bowing to the Dear-Leader and tremble as they pray he doesn’t notice.
Exactly. Obama told us he is a muslim. Is Islam compatible with our laws?
New York Times Blues: Tony Dolan . Still true today.
I posted this yesterday. I am never disappointed.
Since I have accepted we have a congress unwilling to do their job in holding this POS accountable, and since I accepted that not enough of us actually GAF about the people we elect to elect any with principle, I have made a game of this.
Every morning I look for something more asinine, repulsive and Alice in Wonderland crazy coming out of DC than the day before. And Eevery single day I find something. And so goes my personal Bread and circuses.
I mean why the hell not? A huge chunk of my supposed brethren on the right want to elect more Romneys just so they can say they beat the dems...the very same people refusing to hold this bitch to her actions. I might as well enjoy the ride into collapse as best I can.
I know how you feel.
Not proud of feeling this way, but I do. With good reason.
I really don’t fear a collapse anymore. I see it as the best thing that could happen. We will emerge stronger. But it will suck.
And gave us the finger once again.
And WHEN they one of these five returns to the battlefield and kills one or more of ours serving in Afghanistan, the press is going to say that their blood is on Buckwheat's hands, right?? RIGHT???
U. S. policy used to be that we never negotiated with terrorists.
I’m fighting against it all the way, but I cannot disagree with you completely. We’re in a trick bag with only one opening. If somebody came along and slit that bag open...
Negotiating with terrorists guarantees more terrorism.
Our transformation into a turd world country is all but complete now.
Cut the poor guy some slack, it could've been worse. They could have thrown in a thousand weapons from their Fast & Furious stash, in the event a further inducement was necessary.
Just what is the definition of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”? If his own administration has admitted a law was broken, then would this be a felony or misdemeanor? If a felony or misdemeanor has been committed, shouldn't law ENFORCEMENT file charges against those who have broken the law? If Obozo himself signed the law and complained that the law he was signing was a usurption of the executive branch powers, yet signed it into law anyhow and then broke that same law a year and a half later, could that statement be used as evidence of intent to break the law? I'm just trying to help you law enforcement folks...come on now, ask some qwershuns. If congress does not hold the president accountable, the rule of law is over. The law only applies to citizens, not oligarchs.
That should leave a mark. But it will not. There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.
