MSNBC’s Chris Hayes got out his straw man today. There’s barely even any straw in this one, but he tried anyway:

Hayes is conveniently leaving a few things out isn’t he?

Yes he is:

In order for Hayes to make his “argument” work he has to pretend not to know the entire story and misrepresent the position of those he disagrees with. Perfect MSNBC “journalist.”

A bit of unfortunate truth for Hayes from Katie Pavlich and others:

Hayes of course didn’t hear only criticism though.

Here’s sampling of those who agreed with Hayes. Put on your waders, plug your nose and walk in slowly:

Consider those last eight tweets auditions for MSNBC hosting gigs.

    Who paid for that idiot’s lobotomy? Was it MSNBC or Obamacare?

    • SisterMary

      It was scheduled but never completed. Hence the lack of improvement in cognitive and critical thinking…

        Hayes’s brain was so thick, Dr Freeman gave up after all his icepicks got blunted.

        He wasn’t approved, thanks to new ACA guidelines. He will, however, be eligible for sex reassignment surgery after he enrolls in Medicaid and have access to maternity and childhood dental care.

        • JeffyTheQuick

          You mean he’ll be a man after the surgery?

            He seems to want to be Rachel Maddow of the questionable gender fame.

      • Carter_Burger67

        It was never completed because MSNBC editors were too busy looking for the wrong Alice to pay tribute to Ann B. Davis.

      For a lobotomy there has to be something to lobotomize.

      They botched his sex change operation at the same time they did his/her lobotomy.

      • Liz

        Couldn’t tell his ass from his face, huh? Not surprising, considering how often he talks out of the former.

    • JoJo58

      There must have been a run on lobotomies. Maggie Mahar is stunning. @chrislhayes Yes, you are. And we are talking about someone who is 28, and lost 5 years of his life. Even if he did something foolish. . .

      FOOLISH??? Doing something foolish doesn’t come close to going AWOL, finding comfort with the enemy and stating that you hate America. They should have left him to rot, but obama needed to get the terrorists released ASAP to kill more Americans.

      • Mike Gable

        Actually he did it to distract from the VA debacle and it worked.

        • JoJo58

          And the Benghazi debacle, and the IRS debacle, and the Fast and Furious debacle….and on and on and on and on…

        • Bigfoot Steve

          Not to mention the run for the border that is currently happening. I suspect that is what he truly is trying to distract from because amnesty is the game changer.

    • bluewaternavy

      He didn’t have a lobotomy as he hasn’t a brain to lobotomize.

      Because this president did something profoundly stupid..

      of course these hacks find fault with his opposition, instead..

      1st rule of leftist hacks, never see anything wrong with a criminally incompetent president, as long as that D after his name remains intact..

      That traitor could now go shoot up a rec center, and these same leftist scumbags will tell us it all the fault of the right.. just because.. .. .. they would all collectively implode before they ‘d stop kissing obama’s criminal ass.

      • disqus_v3SHzvCspj

        It wasn’t stupid; Obama knew exactly what he was doing; this is a deflection (yet again) from Benghazi, IRS, F&F, and a thoroughly corrupt DOJ. This is part of a classic Cloward/Piven maneuver to overwhealm the media with scandals until you can’t tell one from another, and you can’t tell which one to impeach him on.
        Let the Military JAG investigate and prosecute him for desertion; then when Obama interferes; pardons, drops charges etc; Impeach him for Obstruction of Justice in a capital crime, and conspiracy. By then the Senate will be GOP and the impeachment might pass.

  • Dirty Dutch

    Stupid sombitch.

  • Mary Mommy Happy 2016!

    This was a political move to cover up and distract people from the VA hospital scandal. Which is evidence that the Obama administration really doesn’t care about the troops and just use them as political props.

    Let’s face it, Obama broke the law again and will continue to abuse his authority and claim authority he doesn’t have to subverting the rule of law for his own agenda.

    • Donny Zunker

      And we still have another 2+ years of this c**p to endure….
      Think it’s bad now? I promise we will see even more horrific abuses of power in Obama’s remaining 2 years….

    @chrislhayes yep. i think it’s that pesky black president and his antics. they just don’t like him.

    LibMom @LiberalMommaFollow

    @chrislhayes yes but only because a black President was the one who did it.

    They are the first to bring up Obama’s race, when no one else does, accusing Republicans and those that DARE disagree with the King are racists, but are the first to call black conservatives and independents vile names. Do they not realize that Obama’s mother was white, and he referred to his grandmother, who raised him as “a typical white person.” Why are they locked on race?

    Nothing grates on the nerves more than putting one’s own spin on things over what our brave men and women (well, in this case, the platoon was all men) said about this guy. He was a deserter plain and simple and good men lost their lives trying to find him when he didn’t care about their lives. I don’t care who is spouting crap like this – left or right – but when you don’t highlight what our soldiers are saying, you’re – to put it light – a horrible person. Stop making this politics and use the facts! He was a deserter who didn’t need saving and we gave up 5 known major terrorists. How hard is it to be honest about that? (That’s a rhetorical question, I know how hard it is for them!)

  • itsatax

    This is starting to look like a capital case. There were far less costly ways to deal with this.

  • journogal

    Kinda sort on/off topic here, but has anyone read this regarding search for Bergdahl. It is really sad when you have to rely on UK Press to report what going on in our nation. So much for journalism, unless it’s a Republican President. ‘A cover up just like Benghazi’: Outraged parents of officer who died hunting for ‘deserter’ POW Bergdahl lash out at Obama over ‘LIES’ they were told about how their hero son died

    The total ignorance and bigotry shown by those that agree with that MSNBC trash make me sick. It enrages me to see such intentional idiocy.

    Want to know the truth about what a Conservative thinks? Then ASK a Conservative!!

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      In answer to the questions in your first paragraph Kristine, not a damned thing.

      It goes without saying that you are not alone in your rage, but like all emotions, we need to focus and channel that energy on November. We must convince all those who would sit at home, for whatever reason rather than vote, that voting for the lesser of two evils is a necessity. While we can all agree that voting for the lesser of two evils is not ideal, at least it buys time to continue the fight to preserve/resore a Constitutional Republic…

      • Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Believe you me, I ALWAYS tell people to get out and vote. Taking back the Senate is a HUGE priority at this time. Finding a viable Presidential candidate for 2016 is HUGE.

        But there are people who even post on this site who are refusing to vote. They are going to choose to sit it out.

        In the end, to me, it is irrelevant how much the candidate sucks because whoever it is will ALWAYS suck less than the liberal candidate.

      The Bergdahl’s of that period fled to Canada, until Carter pardoned them.

            “I respectfully disagree. It’s hatred based on envy, spite and greed that wears a person down, well placed hatred energizes…..or at least it does for me.”

            I know well the energy to which you’re referring. In my youth I would, at times, burn with such energy.

            A bit over 40 years ago I recall an NCO who once confessed to me how he used anger/hatred to motivate his charges. Granted, it can motivate over the short haul…

            As the years pass I’ve found that hatred, misplaced or otherwise, burns down the one stoking the fire.

            Knowing that we’ve not arrived at this place in our history overnight, we need to understand we’re in this for the long haul.

      “Charles “Cully” Stimson, a security expert at the conservative
      Heritage Foundation think tank, said there are even more examples of
      small-scale negotiations with terrorist groups that the public, and many
      members of Congress, just don’t know about.

      Under President George W. Bush, Stimson helped coordinate the
      Pentagon’s detainee operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay,
      Cuba, and other places around the world. He said presidential
      administrations of both political parties routinely have been forced to
      deal with terrorist groups for “information, supplies, personnel — a
      lot of different topics.”

      “We have had very quiet negotiations, or discussions at least, with
      terrorist groups over the years on a whole host of things,” Stimson
      said. “They just haven’t usually come to light.””

            You are correct it was never right. But like I said we never saw this outrage, when they where doing it. I’m not saying republicans are racists (my republican friends are far from it) but when people bring out the torches over something that was a non-issue to the right before. People start to think it might be racially motivated.

    It is
    a sad commentary that one could write about another act of treason
    every week and never run out of material illegal acts of this
    non=president. This Talaban prisoner release is one of Owebama’s most
    egregious criminal acts so far. By definition, one who helps the enemy
    make war on his own country has committed an act of TREASON. The
    entomology of the word “traitor” literally means “one who delivers”.
    What has Owebama done?! He has delivered murderous terrorists of the
    Talaban’s choosing — assets of war — to the very enemy that we have
    been at war with for ten years. If that doesn’t meet the definition of

    Trading a deserter for the five most dangerous detainees at Guantanamo makes no sense unless you’re a Muslim working with the Taliban and you believe that the American people are so dim that they can’t figure out what is starring them in the face.

  • Gretz

    We lost a commissioned officer, three sergeants (non-commissioned officers) and two PFC’s over a deserter, then gave up 5 significant terrorists and combatants to get his whiny, traitorous, ungrateful carcass back, plus the commander in chief who agreed to this, failed to consult or notify congress as the law demands, and all done as a publicity stunt to distract from the further discovery of the VA debacle, which the MSM is cheerfully distracted from in an effort to find something about their saint that’s not a disaster.

    That about cover it? Think you can follow some significant nuances to a story, Mr. Hayes, or do you need a few more amateur bloggers to do it for you? I know it’s hard to think the people might have reason to criticize Dear Leader that don’t involve racism, but please attempt to not shame the profession of journalism any further – it’s taken enough of a beating in regards to it’s credibility.

    • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

      I think this was Obama’s order as a response to his West Point foreign policy speech, that everybody including the NYTimes panned. He knows the liberal MSM will CYA on the VA scandal (plus they have Bush to blame).

    We didn’t leave anyone “behind”, the man chose to leave out of his own free will, straight into the hands of an enemy militia.That’s called deserting, or going a-wall, and aiding the enemy, and last time i checked that was punishable by law. So why did Obama, go out of his way, to bring back a traitor who has said hates America?

    Why didn’t the Government implant a tracking device in each of the five released terrorist. And seek them out with drones. Also if the devices were to be tampered w/ in an attempt to remove said device. They would then explode. Oh wait. Why would they want to kill their friends? Never mind.

    Our government set lose 5 Terrorist to kill again. All for an ass that went AWOL & deserted. And this deserter has a family that are Al-Qaeda sympathizers. What do you think the fathers beard is about. They even know the language.

    Obama has committed impeachable offenses. The rest of the world now knows that Dear Leader negotiates with terrorists. Imagine the uproar on the left if George W. Bush had done this. And I’m going to say it…the only reason Obama gets away with it is because no one wants to impeach the first black president. And he knows it.

    • Mike

      GW did much worse during the course of his term. I mean he is responsible for nearly 5,000 American deaths as well as skirting if not outright breaking the Geneva convention.

      Oh and lets not forget about the more than 13 embassy attacks that took place under his watch, which accounted for more than 60 deaths. .. oddly enough there was never any public outcry or investigations into any of those.

      • Michael

        Is the current President also responsible for the deaths in Afghanistan since they have increased since Bush left office? And the “skirting” of the Geneva convention allowed the information to be captured for the Bin Laden raid.

        And it’s not embassy attacks or deaths that are the problem. This happens, in particular with embassies in hostile/unstable countries. The problem is that when the embassy in Benghazi was attacked, the administration may have knowingly lied about the cause of the attack to provide political cover for themselves in an election cycle. Can you point to the link where Bush lied about the cause of an embassy attack to protect himself politically?

        • Mike

          Of course I can’t since the Democrats didn’t get all foaming at the mouth when it happened on Bush’s watch.

          But I can point out that Bush and company did lie about WMD’s to force a war in Iraq. And all the bumbling that occurred while he was in office with that disaster. And still Democrats didn’t go after him with any real vigor even when nearly 5000 Americans have died in that shit hole. Unlike the right trying to politicize the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi.

          If you think this is about anything other than politics then you are deluded.

    Glad the article included a few posts by libs as it lets the world see how they view things. I’m always amazed by their lack of mental capacity to see reality. I was arguing today with a lib who was angry when I said “five terrorists”. He said, “How do you know they were terrorists?” This from a college grad and history student, who refuses to read newspapers or watch TV. It’s like he just crawled out of a cave, how do you educate them? N’mind, I not wasting my time trying.

  • Mike Gable

    No, only deserters, muslim converts and collaborators are rescued: true Americans are left behind to be tortured and die. Fecking lefties.

  • “Rev Jim Jones”

    Hayes exemplifies indescriminate liberal philosophy; there is no good or evil. In his view the US liberated honorable Taliban for a honorable American.

    On a side note – 5 to 1 not being a good trade if all things were equal but that lack of value is attributed to his socialistic leaning.

  • Pilgrim22

    Am I to understand the the POTUS was willing to put every American overseas in jeopardy for a Rose Garden photo op with a soldier’s family so the media and America would top talking about the VA.

    • Jake Bradford

      That’s better than thinking he was looking for any excuse to release these Taliban

  • LimpingHenry

    I really like the post that says desertion is doing “something foolish”. Such high standards on the left.

      Perhaps that person should be subjected to the punishment for desertion during time of war and see how “foolish” they think it is then.

    I really don’t understand if people are informed how they made those last 4 comments. Seriously disturbed by the fact that 1. We negotiated with terrorists without following the laws of the United States of America 2. We focused time, effort and expensive resources to get a deserter 3. The only reason we did the above is because his parents are left wing nut jobs that share a sympathy and support of Islamic extremists with the President.

    This is the same guy who said that he feels uncomfortable calling fallen soldiers “heroes”. Apparently to him, a hero deserts his post, denounces the United States, gets brutal terrorists released, endangers the lives of Americans overseas, gets other soldiers killed trying to find him, and has a family who sympathizes with those who wish to destroy the United States.

    • BAW

      Yep, I was just reminded of the Hayes comment by Mollie Hemingway, in her article, “The Left Is Terrified Right Now About the Bowe Bergdahl Story.”

      That around Memorial two years ago Hayes said he was “uncomfortable” calling soldiers who were killed in action “heroes.”

      Apparently he eventually apologized for saying it so I guess he thinks it’s forgotten.

  • Lanzecki

    Son-in-law was in Afghanistan on his second tour when this happened. It is common knowledge amongst those there that Bowe WALKED off. He is a traitor and a deserter. Of course, it is of the utmost importance that we bring Americans home at ALL costs…well, unless you were in Benghazi…then, of course, what difference does it make?

  • USNbubblehead

    No, Hayes, you are not correct. You fail to see the bigger picture because you have the mentality of a six-year-old.
