Obama on Bergdahl: “a unanimous decision among my principals in MY government“
Hotair ^ | Jazz Shaw

Posted on 06/07/2014 11:51:01 AM PDT by chessplayer

The President sat down for an outdoor interview with NBC’s Brian Williams during his trip to Normandy this week and, predictably, the subject of the Bergdahl swap came up. After what was essentially a repeat of his previous talking points – many of which have proven to be dubious at best, if not outright lies, even according to Democrats – he summoned up a new way to describe how he decided to not involve the usual, key Congressional players in the process. It comes at around the 50 second mark in the video to follow, but here’s the key quote, which follows his declaration that he’d do it all over again if he had to.

0bama is entirely surrounded by a staff of Yes-Men. That always turns out badly.

In light of the lawlessness of this Regime, it would not surprise me if he refuses to turn over power at the end of his term - a declaration of “National Emergency” and assumption of dictatorship supported by his Storm Troopers in DHS.


Too many good men and women of our armed services wouldn’t support his unconstitutional overthrow of our government.

FRiend, I hope that you're right and I'm wrong. I couldn't bear seeing such a thing happening to our Beloved Nation.

O stranger, tell the Lacedaemonians that we lie here, obedient to their command.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

For the first time in my life I am AFRAID of our president and his yes-men/women. He thinks he owns us.

Congress is allowing the current occupant to behave like the government is his. There are checks and balances only if enforced.

I have lost faith in the SEALs for not swooping down on the WH and taking the traitor into custody. Perhaps all the truly patriotic SEALs were purged with the downing of the helicopter in Afghanistan by the same people Obamadullah just released from Gitmo. I can’t believe Obamadullah is allowed to continue his assault on America, including the flooding of our border states with illegal alien Democrat voters for the 2014 midterm election.

Stalin’s government was always unanimous. As was Saddam Hussein’s. And is, I suspect, Kim Jong whatever. A “no” vote was typically not well received.

Things were probably pretty unanimous under Hitler I would wager as well.

“If two people in business always agree, one of them is unnecessary.”

If his people always agree with him 100%, why does he need them?

“a unanimous decision among my principals in MY government“

Love it. Valerie Jarrett is obviously not reading her script before she hands it to Obozo.

The unelected and unapproved "president" of our country should proofread her scripts before letting Obozo sit down with Goofy. Were they holding hands?

And of course, Brian Williams is reading any of the questions previously approved by this gang of jackasses in the White House.

He thinks he’s The Principal and we’re all his agents: everyone in America.
At the same time, however, notice he’s already trying to spread blame for his bone-headed decision: `ALL of my people, well, they pretty much forced me to go this route.
I had my doubts but ...’ blah blah blah
Worst. president. ever.

He will never be fired because he is black.

The Democrats were smart in selecting him to be their candidate. They are brilliant.

Obama can kill people with his own hands on the White House grounds on live television and get away with it.

Indeed, Obama has a lot of “principals”...he’s woefully short on “principle”.

That would be a hoot. I can only picture Sarah doing that.

It is depressing.

I’ve just read too many times that Obama plans to stay in office even after his term. I don’t believe that for one second.

I am a peace loving person and I always plan to be. I just don’t believe the people of this nation would be so peaceful if he thought he was greater than our Constitution. I seriously doubt the people would stand for it.

And, yeah, Obama is the worst president in our nation’s history.

Obama has already proved he is greater than our Constitution. But I think the people would rise up if he refused to leave office. Not 100% sure, though.

Mac daddy, “I requested that all my administration sock puppets to gather in my office so I could tell them how to back me on this decision and to select who will be thrown under the bus if anything goes wrong”.
