Skip to comments.‘Wow!’ And so it begins: White House smears vets, claims ‘swift boating’ of Bergdahl

Unreal. Putting the lives of our brave troops at risk by releasing five Taliban leaders wasnt enough, apparently. Now the White House has to smear those who put their lives on the line for this country.

As I understand the term, “Swift-boating” is, revealing the truth from first-hand accounts.
If any of those vets ever did so much as one night in the brig for drunk and disorderly it is about to hit the papers.
Earth to Obama...!
Bergdahl WANTED to be there, Numbnuts!
We can only hope that the soldiers’ loyalty to each other and to us all overcomes the orders to stay silent.
Did you know J F’n Kerry served in Vietnam?
They just keep digging that hole deeper and deeper..........................
In the liberal view of things, swift boating means a political smear campaign, based on lies. They claim that the original swift boat veterans, were lying about John Kerry and Vietnam service.
No matter how much the Obama regime seems to be falling apart, it will keep shambling on until people decide to look away from their TV, drugs, and sex just long enough to see what’s actually going on.
I predict that Obama or Carney or his replacement, will come out and say they didn’t know about the desertion issues with Bergdahl, and that they learned about it watching TV news.
Indeed. Ironic, yes?
waiting for the day the Obama Admin defects to the Taliban
The problem for them now is that their ridicule is fake, and their opponent's ridicule is documented.
Some might just be too busy busting their ass to pay much attention. Working two jobs to pay the mortgage leaves little time for TV, internet and newspapers.
The democRATS have launched a .... War On Our Warriors.
They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of Afghanistan in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied drone power of this country.
“Swiftboating” means to correct the record and tell the truth about someone.
RE: claims swift boating of Bergdahl
Well, that should be a compliment. The Swift Boaters were telling the truth in 2004.
Depends on who is using the term.
Why didn’t we just send the father to Pakeeeestan?
Pray America wakes up
I went a couple years on a startup doing many 12-14 hour days/30 day runs with no time off. Yet because I wanted to stay informed, I stayed informed.
There is no excuse.
If that happens, find us a VFW hall and I'll buy the first three kegs.
The word means, or should mean, the exposure of a fraudulent autobiography of one seeking political office or public influence. It is the correction of a personal and professional record that has been selectively and dishonestly compiled, as the Swift Vets did so effectively to that of John Kerry.
Guess you missed it.
Ridicule: Hey. . . Obama . . . bearded ladies in dresses humping goats and camels are laughing their a$$e$ off at you in A’stan. You are going to be the pin-up butt of every joke at the mountain opium party tonight . . . I know you and Reggie wish you could be there.
Thats the major problem.
People get their political views from Lady Gaga and Jay Z.
Getting flak...over target
I think all of this was staged, personally. Holder said just last week that they want to focus more of their resources on “domestic terrorists.” I see this administration as a petulant little child throwing rocks at a large hornet nest. Eventually one of those rocks is going to crack open that nest, and the swarm will overwhelm that little child.
They’ve needled Christians (gay marriage), business owners (”You didn’t build that!”), travelers (continued TSA abuses), and now soldiers are front and center (VA, Bergdhal, repeal of DADT). Most of us haven’t budged from our bulwarks. We’re waiting for the true fusillade to begin. I think, however, vets are nearing a break point, and I would bet the administration, specifically the Just-us department, is preparing for a vet uprising that’ll make the Bonus Army look like a Scout Jamboree.
It has been 3412 days since 01/30/2005 when "Hanoi" John Kerry promised, on national TV, to sign form SF-180 and release his military records.
It's NOT our troops that will be put at risk - it'll be us.
With kids to take care of also?
Yes in fact. As a single father. And yet somehow my daughter grew up to be a USAF Sgt. flying around with one of the folks you read about every day. So yes, it is possible.
Bolshie heros are always traitors.
maybe not everyone has your make-up... your abilities...
I’m not special. It does not take muck to open a web browser to catch up for a few min. here and there.
What do we expect? To “Swiftboat” is “to expose the truth by those who observed, or were involved in, the subject situation”. To decent people, it’s a good thing. Obviously, to evil-doers, it’s very, very bad.
Obama and minions are despicable in every way. The V.A. issue is a disgrace. As Montel Williams said, if one of the terrorists at Gitmo has a sniffle they’re treated within an hour. Our own wonderful heroes are left for months and years to die without any treatment.
“And we rolled through Afghanistan like Jen-Jis Khan...”
LOL I haven’t heard anyone use that word in 40 years. I thought that I was the only one who still used it! Thank you for the laugh!
No matter how you slice it up, a 5 for 1 trade seems senseless.
You are the recipient of today's "Nail on the Head" Award.
The Simple Minded Obama Calculation:
The Libs will love the release of prisoners from Guantanamo Bay.
The Right will love the release of an American "War Hero".
A guaranteed Win-Win for sure. And, as a bonus, less time on Fox News for discussions about the VA Mess and Benghazi. A triple win.
“waiting for the day the Obama Admin defects to the Taliban”
In the event that you have not been paying attention since 2008, Obemba WAS/IS a member of the Taliban!
“I will stand with the Muslims” - Obemba quote from his ‘manifesto’.
Bergdahl’s father gave a clear statement at the time of this traitor’s desertion, including that his son indicated an intent to leave his unit. Bergdahl was not “captured” according to that account, and I’m amused that Obama would try to pretend that Bergdahl’s father is swift boating his own son.
“taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power,”
How does one ‘turn up the power’ on a portable telephone? A remote telephone or a cell phone?
The voltages on either device would be minimal as well as the current flow. I do not know this for a fact but it seems implausible to me that either would cause pain or even feel the current flow.
A land-line telephone, on the other hand, has the capability to ‘shock’ and cause pain when it is ringing.
Yeah their true colors are showing now more than ever, as they hit the political panic buttons.
Keep after these bastards
I was wondering how long claims of “swiftboating” would take. I guess that’s code for “telling the truth?”
