Wait, what?

Bingo. And so it begins:

Did the White House really say that?

It can’t be true, can it? Well, according to Chuck Todd it is.

Unreal. Putting the lives of our brave troops at risk by releasing five Taliban leaders wasn’t enough, apparently. Now the White House has to smear those who put their lives on the line for this country.

Despicable White House. You have sunk to a new low.

But, hey. Smear. Smear like the wind. It’s the Chicago way.

        Agreed Donny. For Obama to be successfully impeached, he’d have to do something, in front of witnesses, so egregious, so heinous, that the Dems realize that if they don’t act and do so to the people’s satisfaction, armed insurrections would be likely.

        • QueenB

          I honestly don’t think there is anything he could do that would make the Obamabots see the light. I used to use the analogy that he could kick a puppy across the White House lawn and his supporters would say he was just spreading awareness of the problem of animal abuse in this country. I now think it’s worse than that. My new analogy is Obama could kill the average Obama supporters entire family and they would fetch him a cup to drink their blood.

        They can call for his resignation, but Obama can’t admit the truth even when he is caught in a lie, so he’s not ever going to resign.

        He’d be Impeached in the House… the Senate would then vote to remove him or take some other action (or not) as punishment.

          even obama cannot win a contest against us, not and recover politically.. each vet, is just a man, a woman,., not a superhero,.. not a machine, normal flawed human being..

          as an institution, we are legion.. we are many, our best inspire, our best lead, our best rest in foreign soil all around the world,.. our rank and file are America, every color, every creed,.. we are the living memory of sacrifice , honor, service.. we are as a group America, as it thinks it should be, they project ontto us, America as they wish they could be, even flawed as we are are regular people, the country sees more, putting the mantle on us.. and in turn, we try in our fumbling way to be worthy of what they see, the men we’ve known, those who never made it home..

          Being a vet is a responsibility, sometimes ill used, sometimes not accepted, sometimes… we aren’t what people, some people expect.. but through all that..

          we’re here, proud, humbled by the respect, but deeply earnest in trying to do what’s right, because the mind which served, is the one we take home, every goal a mission, every trial, a test..

          Just people.. but the institution, belongs to America, not just us..

    The arrogance and ignorance of this administration is staggering. This is a fight that it simply can’t win. There is no institution in the country more trusted and respected than the military. Its members, both past and present, are – rightly – given a special place in society. The WH doesn’t even come close in commanding the respect and honour that most Americans still give to the lowliest of soldiers.

    These people were there – on the ground – at the time – and they know what happened.

    Kerry: ‘President Nixon secretly sent me to Cambodia during Christmas of 1968.’

    Fact: Nixon was not POTUS in December, 1968.

    Bergdahl: ‘I was captured when I lagged behind on patrol.’

    Fact: There was NO patrol that evening and it is incontrovertible that he walked away from his post, according to the 2010 Pentagon report. Incontrovertible.

      That was Carter’s real legacy… 8 years of Reagan, and a bumper crop of young conservatives. I was in during Carter’s last months, the difference between that feckless buffoon, and my president was stark..

      Suddenly, we had ammunition for training properly, insread of pointing and shouting “bang” at each other.. suddenly the gear worn out after Vietnam, was being replaced, our pilots were again logging hours in the air… and for the first time after enlisting..

      the first time…

      We felt like our CIC was on our side, cared about us, loved, respected us… no more of Carter’s directives, “don’t fly in uniform, it provokes the anti-war protestors”…. provokes?….

      As hard as we worked to earn our berets, the chump in chief said take them off, so as not to annoy his hard left base… um… no, we flew home, to duty bases in class A’s after that just to thumb our noses at his base, and his ignorant shriveled up soul..

      we were young fit and proud, volunteering when vets were still treated as addicts and burnouts by the democrats, the media, volunteering when the “hip” crowd was still listening to Dylan, still hanging onto the dying “peace” movement.. a movement that made it’s bones by spitting on vets…

      we were done with that.. no more stepping aside, no more turning the other cheek,, you spit on me, I break your teeth.. made to stick in bars and parking lots across the country as the younger brothers, sons nephews of the Nam vets came up into the ranks.. we were not better, but we were not taking it any more, no more being polite, nice..

        I think the administration really thought that getting Bergdahl home would be a hole-in-one for the administration – that no one could possibly say anything negative about bringing home a hostage, no matter the circumstances. This was supposed to be a shining victory to distract from the VA crisis, and I believe they really are shocked that it’s turned into another fiasco. I think Todd’s trying to salvage this the only way the administration knows how – smear the opposition. Since the only kind of outrage they’ve got on the left is the manufactured kind, they really don’t understand their opposition. This is real outrage, and treating it like manufactured outrage is going to make things worse.

He has communist in his admin.

        0bama wrote it all out in his books, he has nothing, absolutely nothing good to say about America, and he depicts that it is that he is the victim, and the revolutionist that he believes he the Marxist is, is he is the equalizer, and our Founders didn’t write an Equalizing Doctrine, so he has the job to dictate it, mandate it, as it is his job to fulfill his Dreams from my father, as he only knows revenge, and it is his job to do. Equalize the pain that he felt, because his father was ran out of the U.S.

        New day, new scandal. Next day, new scandal to deflect from the prior scandals. He will equalize it, because remember he’s the only victim, and he is the leader of the Victimhood.

    HUGE DIFFERENCE White House stooges…

    there were 52 Americans released, not one, and we gave Iran nothing for them, except the allowing them to continue breathing another day..

    but these retrograde tools, thought… (first mistake), wow…. if that icky icky caveman conservative got raves….. why, the country will nominate us for sainthood.

    Reagan was a great man of principle, obama is a small petty man who should be severely schooled on basics, like basic decency, common sense, and trading 5 terror planners for a traitorous coward is stupedously ignorant…

    ‘How Swift Boat Veterans, POWs and the New Media Defeated John Kerry’

    by Scott Swett and Tim Ziegler

    Sen. John Kerry’s 2004 presidential bid became the catalyst for an unprecedented political movement by Vietnam veterans who had long resented his false 1971 testimony that American troops routinely committed war crimes.

    Despite the best efforts of the Democratic Party and its old media affiliates, they succeeded in reaching out to the public and turning the presidential campaign upside down.Here, for the first time, is the complete story
    of how – and why – they did it.

    http://www.tosettherecordstraight.com/

  • SonsOfMontesQ

    first sign of a failing dictator: he loses control of the military

    so keep smearing our vets, WH, and see how quickly orders start being refused en masse.

      I think we need a CIC who does have military experience. For this to be stated via the WH is inexcusable.

        or a CIC who doesn’t have the experience, and doesn’t pretend that he does. a CIC without experience who will understand and admit he doesn’t know and use experienced military advisers with real combat experience for actual military advisement instead of political springboards.

      That’s why they keep wanting military service to be a path for illegal “dreamers” to gain citizenship . . . fill the military with foreign mercenaries, loyal to the “party” not to the Constitution.

  • Acethepug

    Absolutely amazing. To the Left, “swift boating” is apparently some kind of slanderous lying. To anyone who bothers to get informed, they realize that it actually means getting the facts made public.

    Kerry got exactly what he deserved for throwing the military under the bus because it was expedient for him to do so.

    That the White House would use the term speaks VOLUMES to their tone-deafness on the military.

  • jim

    You know how some kids, when they’re caught in a lie, they continue to
    hold to the lie. No matter what evidence you provide that shows they’re
    lying, they stick to the lie. Then they tell more lies to make the first lie sound
    plausible. So it becomes lies on top of lies on top of lies and on and on. Soon
    they’re so deep in lies to cover up for the first lie that you can’t believe
    the first lie was even worth all the lies they’re telling now.

    This is what the Obama WH reminds me of. His incompetence gets him into trouble
    and then, rather than just saying “I screwed up”, he compounds the
    problem by trying to convince people, and I believe himself, that
    what he did was right. He does this even though he causes more problems for
    himself by sticking to the narrative that the original decision was a good
    decision. This causes more bad decisions and more bad statements regarding the
    first bad decision and on and on it goes.

    The only thing that stops this infinite loop of incompetents and cover up is
    when he makes a completely new incompetent decision to start an entirely new
    loop. It’s sad really.

    I suspect that as a child he was not corrected in such a way as to learn the
    hard lesson that this mindset never works out. Perhaps his parents allowed his
    lies to stand as a child thereby reinforcing the idea that this mindset
    works. Who knows?

    • Acethepug

      Daddy issues all the way down. And an aversion to truth much like a vampire’s aversion to sunlight.

      Seriously, Obama lies even when he DOESN’T HAVE TO. It’s his first and last instinct — why else seal all his records? I suppose his using the records of others to attack them plays into this, too.

      And he was never corrected, as a child OR an adult. He’s always been told he is the smartest, most special snowflake ever, so he’s never learned anything — why should he?

    • bicentennialguy

      Judging on the quality of his parents, I’d say there was little to no discipline and he was treated as a “special flower.”

  • Squiddy

    You know, part of me wishes they’d just get the message – “take responsibility for the colossal clusterfark, and stop lashing out at those soldiers who are speaking out – because what they’re saying now is totally consistent with what’s been said the previous 5 years ” ….

    But there’s also a part of me that says “Keep it up, clowns – this pattern of attacking the messenger is no different from how you’ve handled every other blow-up, and this time, it seems to be obvious to even your most die-hard supporters – excluding MSNBC anchors, of course.” Sort of the “Never interrupt your enemy when he’s in the process of hurting himself” rule.

    Some parts of government claiming ignorance, the “We’re still collecting the facts” deferral – five years later, when many/most of the salient facts were already out there – does make you look pig-ignorant, but at least it’s better than calling all those soldiers liars.

        • ExPat_in_Krakow

          And to make matters even more pathetic – her defense in calling those soldiers liars is that Obama, the State Dept and the Pentagon released 5 dangerous terrorists WITHOUT HAVING ALL THE FACTS.

          Sure, she’s lying, but defending your position by stating that you still don’t have any idea what is the truth? Disgusting.

          Not having all the facts is a reason or an excuse for doing nothing, for waiting until one has all the facts. Releasing 5 dangerous terrorists without having all the facts is the rationale of a clueless incompetent idiot.

    • ExPat_in_Krakow

      The whole episode is disgusting.

      Not only did the State Dept call those soldiers liars – she flat-out admitted that they didn’t have all the facts (even though they DO actually have all the facts.)

      Think about that – the President traded 5 dangerous terrorists for one individual behind enemy lines WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS. That is their current position on the matter! WTF?? Really?

      That’s your BEST defense? You don’t know your sh!t from apple butter? Really? You’ll learn what happened by reading about it in tomorrow’s morning paper?

      I mean, which is worse – that they knew exactly what the facts were and knew exactly what they were doing, or that they didn’t have all the facts and therefore didn’t know what they were getting into?

      • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

        The problem is she’s commenting on something way above her pay grade. All she had to do is refer the questioner to the defense department, and not commented on the issue at all.

        But she’s typical of the face the State Department put’s out front to the public to represent their department. Arrogant. As if this person has any clue what serving in a forward operating base in Afghanistan entails, and what happened to their unit while they were serving. They were there – they are eye witnesses.

        They can’t even manage to bring a Taliban captive back to the US without insulting US military service members. This is following the VA debacle.

        They need to send these spokes(models) to sensitivity training. Teach them how NOT to insult United States military personal. The people who ensure their freedom and protection. She could show some f’n respect.

    This is not smearing Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers. Swift-boating should be defined as making sure the truth of dishonorable service is made known to all. It was true of Kerry and it is true of Bergdahl. I take WH comments as unintended compliments to those who came forward with the truth.

  • jr565

    Swift boating, to libs, apparently means telling the truth about someone which is inconvenient to the liberal narrative. They suggest that it means you are lying about someone for political purposes. But this, like the John Kerry swiftboating revealed accurate information.

  • tedlv

    I really think it’s a really good idea to keep well trained combat veterans “gruntled”.

  • Cymbaline

    “Swift Boating” in this case meaning “Truths that make the Left whine”.

    • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      That’s what “swift boating” has always been. They truth about someone the left worships.

  • ChazSmith

    Even if he is being “swift boated” so what. The swift boat allegations were true. We can follow the bouncing ball on this one, so good to the White House and the Media if they think they will be able to cover this one up without replacing it with another scandal.

  • John Howard

    Offer him some ham or BLT sandwiches so we can find out if he truly has converted.

      I’d like to see that:

  • Chrissy the Hyphenated

    Teensy problem with “accusing” anyone of swiftboating. The Swift Boat Vets were telling the TRUTH.

  • Earl Sullivan

    This is the most childish administration ever in our country’s history, to sit there and put down soldiers that served their time and came home and didn’t DESERT like he did….. this is actually turning my stomach just hearing about this.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      Benedict Arnold was pivotal in the Revolution (he’s the real Hero of Saratoga) and was grievously wounded on the battlefield for the US. I get the point and the alliteration is cool and all but it doesn’t seem quite right to compare a traitor who actually helped create the US to a punk who deserted and got at least 6 US soldiers killed as a result.

      • Peyton

        True. #BadDealBergdahl?

  • disqus_Ts9VJuSymO

    Huh…when are the Republicans going to stop complaining and remove these people. The House should pass Articles of Impeachment and each Republican running for the Senate should pledge that they will vote for conviction. Anything less means the Republicans are complicit in this madness and they should be removed from office as well. We got a national crisis here people.

    • AZ_Langer

      Unfortunately, the line of succession isn’t a positive argument for the idea.

      • disqus_Ts9VJuSymO

        Impeach Biden too and the Speaker of the House becomes President. This Administration is destroying this country.

        • AZ_Langer

          Really?

          The Speaker of the House seems to be more problem than solution, and it gets even worse further down the list.

          Both parties are doing a darned good job of destroying this country.

        • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          And impeach Biden on what?

          Impeachment is not some trivial undertaking. The way the word “impeach” is tossed around it’s about lost all meaning along with the word “racism”.

          Obama, now there just might be some grounds with enough solid evidence. Especially now with the clear breaking of the 30-day law. It is my opinion that Obama has violated his oath of office.

          But what specifically do you want to hang on Biden?

          “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

      • Dan13

        At this point, go with Biden as president. The GOP will have both Houses.

    • Will

      Most Republicans are Subversive Progressives. They can only get elected if they Act Conservative before the Election and then they can Enable the “Real” Progressives to do their Job.

  • notebene

    This is the disgusting crap you get from an administration that never sacrificed their lives for anything! They all milked the system to get where they are through their self appointed sense of entitlement, not ability, just networking through the same warped social set. This was a poke in the eye not only to our honorable Veterans, but to all who currently serve because they value the campaign donations from the Mu slime brotherhood over the safety of the American people!

  • Will

    Lets recap what Democrats think.
    Bergdahl served with Honor and Distinction. Bergdahl is a Hero.
    Every Other Soldier involved is a Petty Swiftboater.
    And All other Wish we Left Americans Behind.

    So Support Obama or Become Evil!!!!!!!

    • Dan13

      Will, stop being such a racist until 2016 when you become a sexist.

  • RevnantDream

    Did anyone ever expect any thing else from the Islamist in the White house.
    Of more concern is a new bill to destroy free speech under the fury of this latest outrage against America.
    That’s how this criminal administration works. create a major incident that produce executive orders under the table. Than attack the Joe Plumbers of the World to cool it down when your ruse has worked.The USA is dying the death of a thousand bills under this Socialist regime. One bill at a time , then hidden by the MSM who thinks this guy is the Messiah. From being allowed to kill American to shutting every one up, pretending to care about truth. Nothing but lies from this group of totalitarians.

  • john west

    This particular scandal is smelly sticky one. It is poop on the presidents shoes …. he may not wipe this one off so easily. The Army is mad at him. The entire conservative world is peed off …. even a whack of liberals are freaking at this outrageous display of criminal acts by president phone-pen. He now only supported by the muslim world and a handful of leftist, america hating freaks and the twits he surrounds himself with in the nut house … formerly known as the white house.

  • Gordon Waite

    Someone kill me please! I can’t take any more of Obama, and his communist administrations destruction of my America!

  • TDS

    Well, in defense of the White House’s position, Bergdahl DID serve with the same amount of “honor and distinction” as Secretary Kerry did, so it is a fairly fitting comparison.

    /s

  • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Sooo… according to the White House, Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction” but the guys there with him are psychopaths and liars.

    Yeah, good plan there. Who’s doing the smearing again??

    This is way too much, even for this administration. They keep crossing lines but this line? No. Even too far compared to all the other lines ignored by these people.

  • Lisa Wiese

    Wow, liberals really are dishonorable, nasty, lying, pieces of shit. Just no way around it.

  • Vinchenz

    What a bunch of shameless scumbags.

  • Ogrrre

    When you consider the true definition of “swiftboating” then, for once, the Whitehouse is right. “Swiftboating” is telling the truth about a Democrat, or in this case, a darling of the Democrats. The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth told the truth about John F’ing Kerry, and the Left didn’t like that. The soldiers who served with Bergdahl are telling the truth about him, and Obama doesn’t like it because it shows what a screw up he is (like anyone needed any more proof).

  • 3niaj3

    I’m glad to know that Swiftboating has become a cliche with the WH group. They know the meaning well.

  • Dan13

    We should throw the medals earned by someone else over the White House fence in protest for what they are doing to these soldiers.

  • captaingrumpy

    Whose getting the “medal of honour” again ????
