A Democratic congressman offered a curious analogy on Monday to explain why the U.S. is dealing with the Taliban -- apparently comparing them to soldiers in the American Revolution.
According to sources, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., made the comparison during a House briefing late Monday with administration officials on the trade of Taliban members for American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Nadler apparently made the point that the Taliban, as non-state actors, have a status similar to that of American soldiers who fought the British during the Revolutionary War.
This comparison, Fox News is told, was met with a lot of groaning by other lawmakers.

Keep the pressure on. Never let up. Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

All Democrats are traitors.
So, he’s saying the founding fathers were terrorists?
You have to understand how the dem mind works...
I had the distinct honor and pleasure of shouting down this turd as he attempted to spin the media in front of the Broward County courthouse as the illegal 2000 recount was going on inside. Man, that event had every repulsive RAT in the country show up for the coveted media op.
We went up to loyal Englishmen and said sign this or you’re in big trouble.
More cr@p from the “Waddler”.

Today’s FF Award goes to: Jerrold Nadler!
Maybe he and Christie can go “invade” a Crispy Creme!
Hilarious that this was uttered by some fat Jewish dude that the Taliban would slaughter in an instant if they got their hands on him.
You are pig and extremely fat to boot.
Obese really and no lipstick will hide that fact...
I can remember being taught in history class about how American Revolutionary heroes cut peoples heads off and imposed sharia law on everyone...
There’s more excuses all the time!
Holy....uh...moley. That dude has lost 200 pounds since I last saw him.
He still has 19 chins.
Is he suggesting our founding fathers would have flown airplanes full of innocent people into building full of other innocent people? IDIOT!
He still has to Vaseline his face to get into his shirt.
