The lies that have been issued so far on a daily basis are not having their desired effect.

“But haven’t we been told that Obama personally negotiated the terms of the Bergdahl trade”

We’ve also been told that the WH doesn’t negotiate with terrorists. So either the WH is lying (GASP!), or they are being honest and let the terrorists set all the conditions. Gee,,,which scenario gives the warmest fuzzy?

Neither.

BUT,,,get this,,I just saw a ray of hope!!!!!!!
I don’t know why I NEVER thought of this.
Alinsky tactics ————only worked back in the day...

Alinksy could not have foreseen all the communication technology we have right now,,,and even the best liars will be caught when they have to continuously spin lies in real time. Alinsky could not have known the level of recording and instant documentation that is present in our world today. No way! Alinsky tactics are going to fail,,they ARE failing!

The super fast “right now” technology may save our country!

Wow,,TRUTH may have a safety net after all!

Thank you God!

Does Obama have a single redeeming characteristic? Even one?

He probably wears the dresses in the family. Behind closed doors.

OK... So, Obama blames Hagel, a pretending to be Republican and at best a RINO for Obama’s decision to trade a traitor for 5 high ranking terrorist. ...
I get it... It must be Bush’s fault.

Grow some, Obama. At least try to be an adult if you can’t be a real man... You Marxist foolish little boy!

Well played.

Drove through Delaware today and thought of Slow Joe. Those b***ards have the shortest stretch of highway but hit us for $8.00 in tolls. OK, I can understand the bridge but the other one? I’m sure a Biden gets a cut one way or another.

Too tired to read through the other posts, but and I'm sure it's been pointed out many times already, but ‘The buck stops here’, Mr. President. You have no problem vetoing everything the Republicans do, but you can't say no to Hagel? Sure.

Sure he has redeeming characteristics:

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," - Senator Joe Biden

Problem is that he is more red than black.
