Today, during a joint presser in Brussels with UK Prime Minister David Cameron, President Obama had this to say about the controversy over the Bergdahl swap:

Maddening:

He’s not sorry. At all:

Citizens, including Bergdahl’s own platoon mates, are rightfully concerned about the prisoner swap. And with his flippant “whipped up” dismissal, the president is basically spitting in their faces.

    Dear Democrats,

    This is why people like me view you as anti-military and anti-American. Don’t like it? Take it up with your people that make remarks like that.

    • LegalizeShemp

      Don’t forget anti-law enforcement and pro-criminal, Democrats are well known for that too.

    • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

      You’re a vet, correct? I’m just curious how does the so called commander-in-chief expect his troops to carry out his orders after this much spitting in their faces. I said ‘so called’ because I don’t see how anyone could call him that with a straight face after all this.

      • NRPax

        Yes, I am a vet (USMC 98-04). And to answer your question, it’s because they still respect the office even if the person occupying it is not worth it.

        • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

          Thanks. I guess that makes sense although personally I’d have a really hard time with it. He does wonders for the morale of his troops doesn’t he.

          • NRPax

            It just shows what a group of professionals the average military person is. -:-)

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            If by wonders for the morale, you mean he lights fuses, I’d say yep.

            Hmmm… I wonder if the active duty, deployed will see more impediments to voting this November than they have in the past?

        • Thale Taxurfeet

          “And to answer your question, it’s because they still respect the office even if the person occupying it is not worth it.”

          I once commented in an abridged why for fashion on how the Oath we swear when entering military service obligates us to follow all lawful orders. My comment was done, IIRC, for someone who could not understand the Oath, the obligations one takes on when swearing to that oath, and the honor/integrity required to abide by that oath to obey lawful orders. Further, why the oath also requires the swearer to refuse to obey unlawful orders. And why as long as Constitutional means are available to the people of the Republic, it is the responsibility of We the People, not the U.S. Military to rein in the malignancy growing in our Federal Government.

          I’d like to believe the studs still outnumber the perfumed princes* if Teh Won or any similar failing of the electorate were ever to decide to maximize a push of unlawful orders off on the Chiefs of Staff/Pentagon.

          Should I be wrong and the Perfumed Princes do acquiesce to execute unlawful orders, I know those who actually run the U.S. Military, where the rubber meets the road, the NCO’s, will brook no $#!+ against our Republic.

          Failing that I suppose millions of us will become guerrillas in our own land for as long as we can stand.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            “The Perfumed Princes are very outnumbered. If they are smart, they will never forget that.”

            Some maybe, others are not as smart as they think they are.

            “You served as well, didn’t you? I seem to recall that from the darker recesses of my brain.”

            A long, long time ago. I was separated about 40 years ago. After the U.S. made an excursion into SE Asia. Whereupon the Left decided that we needed to withdraw our forces and let the natives kill each other and let Buddha sort it out.

            That may, on occasion, seep through my commentary on politicians in general and the Left in particular. I hope not. 😉

        • Discontentwliars

          Well it looks like there will be new rules for a soldier leaving his post in the future. Just defect to the other side, and you’ll be brought back without any issues. I really hope they write these rules down somewhere.

    • conservativechick

      The conversation is being diverted to Bergdahl, who is only HALF the problem. FIVE top leaders and terrorist organizers have been released in exchange for him! Talk about them. Can’t wait to see what they “WHIP UP!”

      • NRPax

        Oh, we can multitask. That’s probably frustrating to them as well.

      • Discontentwliars

        I’m sure the 5 promised to stay put until after the 2014 elections.

      • BeautifulAmerica

        One rabid, former-60’s democommie screamed and yelled at me that this illegal “trade” is OK because the 5 were going to prison in Quatar. Prison? Living in a resort with their families and free to travel?

    Phony Scandal or Whipped-up Controversy: the situation resulting from the public actually being told the truth about what the Obama administration has done. A situation unfathomable to Democrats on two counts; 1) they do not understand why anyone would actually tell the public the truth, and 2) do not understand why anyone would ever think that they could do anything wrong.

    How did Washington Whip this up? Obama did this swap all on his own. He would’ve known there would be backlash if he uh….WENT TO CONGRESS! He in his mind knows Republicans don’t kiss his butt that’s why he circumvented them yet complains because he gives them something to be upset about.

    Washington didn’t whip this up, unless Obama was referring to his own Administration. Five high-level Taliban in exchange for one likely deserter, under sketchy circumstances, that even people in his own party are questioning, with people in his White House trying to tarnish the reputations of the men who served with the likely deserter. We expect our US President to not be so touchy and defensive when we US citizens call all of this into question.

    Now we get “whipped up.” Pres Obama said that sanctions were “teed up” and were being delayed only by technical issues…Teed Up?

Pres Obama’s language skills at best are sophomoric and pedestrian. At worst his language skills are emetic.

    Taliban Commander: More Kidnappings to Come After Bergdahl Deal

    A Taliban commander close to the negotiations over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told TIME Thursday that the deal made to secure Bergdahl’s release has made it more appealing for fighters to capture American soldiers and other high-value targets.

    “It’s better to kidnap one person like Bergdahl than kidnapping hundreds of useless people,” the commander said, speaking by telephone on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media. “It has encouraged our people. Now everybody will work hard to capture such an important bird.”

    • mrspinky85

      This is exactly what were saying was wrong with this deal. From my research I posted yesterday, the Taliban has been emboldened by this negotiation since the beginning. They felt America legitimized them as an organization. 12 years down the drain not by Bush but by both Obama and Hillary Clinton.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Remember “we don’t negotiate with terrorists, it gives them legitimacy and creates more terrorism”. But that’s when US foreign policy made sense, then Obama got elected.

    • jaded

      you know, the thing that has bothered me with that phrase–especially over this past week, is that it is very apparent that he will negotiate with terrorists before republicans.

    • DutyFirst

      Aah, but if it is a POW swap then the negotiations had to have been with a recognized belligerent ergo not terrorist. However, when it suits the ‘five’ are not POW’s and should therefore get their day in a civilian court unlike POW who only get a day in front of military tribunal. Really sucks that Ocare doesn’t cover industrial grade headache tablets for the screaming headaches I suffer from the constant mental whiplashes that this administration inflicts upon me.

  • DutyFirst

    Obama vowed to fundamentally transform this country. But into what? There is much speculation about what his ideology is. Some are convinced he is a muslim, others believe him a socialist while others believe he is puppet of nebulous overlords Soros? or other reputed ‘new world order’ cabals. I think that this is intentional on his part. You dissipate the enemies focus by presenting multiple targets. I think Dinesh D’Souza comes pretty close with his documentary 2016 Obamas America but I also believe that is a little bit more to it. What it is, I don’t know but then that is exactly what he intends. He got elected believing he could fundamentally change this country and come out the other side with an outstanding legacy. As it stands now, while ever this country remains a conservative leaning country his legacy is going to go down in the history books as somewhere between Carters and whale doo doo. The only way it will ever be elevated is if the ‘transformation’ is completed and he is hailed by the peoples of that transformed country as the ‘father’ of what they are living. So for him it is now a matter of getting the transformation to a point of critical mass where it the transformation has life of it’s own that cannot be stopped. To do this I believe he has two Cloward Piven strategies in play. The first one, against the economy and government, he initiated on taking office and it is moving along and he has just added another plank to it with the EPA regulations which will have the effect of forcing more people onto the welfare rolls of local, state and federal governments, Ocare’s full effect on the economy yet to bite and a host of other things. The debt crisis looms and if the US dollar loses it’s place as the worlds reserve currency the economic and social collapse of the US will follow. Classic Cloward Piven. The second has become apparent in his second term following his realization that he was not going to see his goals achieved in his terms of office and possibly not in his lifetime. This is the ‘scandal’ strategy. He had it bubbling along at a low temperature with all the unknown and suspicious elements surrounding him personally, not eligible, concealed academic records etc etc. But now he is ramping it up through his and his administration’s responses and actions to scandals whether of his deliberate making or just there as they always will be in large government. Now he has us all divided, all of us outraged but stretched thin trying to engage all the targets to our front. Working damn fine if you ask me.
    Don’t know how much sense this makes to anyone else but I now feel much less frustrated when I can view what I see happening through this lens. Doesn’t mean that I have any great ideas on how this menace to this country’s future can be dealt with but at least the cats and TV can be more relaxed around me.

    Edit: Probably wrong thread but I just had to get it out.

    When your popularity numbers drop below 39%:

    SELL!!!

    . . . “A senior Taliban commander familiar with the negotiations to exchange Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for the ‘Taliban 5’ said Thursday that Americans are now a high value target for kidnapping, especially now that such a tremendous incentive has been established.

    The commander told TIME Thursday, “It’s better to kidnap one person like Bergdahl than kidnapping hundreds of useless people. It has encouraged our people. Now everybody will work hard to capture such an important bird.”

    Gee Thanks Obama!

    It’s there for all to see, Democrats will eagerly negotiate with terrorists but not Republicans. What’s the matter Dems, afraid to put your name on it?

    I’m going to try that method when I get pulled over.

  • globalcrap

    How about whipping up your “5” Jihad brothers that you let loose ,with American blood on their hands. I guess these your Jihad brothers are innocent of killing Americans , and now set free again to murder more Americans. Impeachment is way overdue.

    I just got back from the Obama Car Dealership. I traded in my 1973 Ford Pinto for 5 brand new Cadillac Escalades straight up with no further payments required !

    Ask the Israeli’s how well this type of prisoner swap works. They’ve been trading soldiers for terrorists for years (and usually to the tune of 5 to 1). How many busses in Tel Aviv have NOT blown up or how many rockets have NOT landed because they made such a great trade?

    Our military have to ask permission to return fire – Check

    Our military are now bigger targets, they’re pawns in the trading game for politicians – Check

    We civilians are even bigger targets here and abroad, now that the dictator has made a 5-1 trade off – Check

    hmmm, seeing a pattern here?

            Naw. He’ll write an executive order or some bull crap that he and his family are so special that the need special protections for the next three generations. Cheap ass don’t pay for nothing. Just look at the lavish vacays he and Marie take. You think he’d open his wallet for that ?

      If the rate of exchange for a traitorous deserter is five to one, what is the rate of exchange for a CIA station chief?

  • Discontentwliars

    I understand there will not be a shred of evidence that the 5 released prisoners, or Bergdahl are responsible for anything. Besides it was a long time ago, and at this point what difference does it make. They could have just been roaming around the neighborhood when they got caught. So remember, we don’t have to worry about crazy people that invade other countries, kill people indiscriminately, imprison others daughters… WWII was just a fluke, and we really didn’t need to get involved, it was Bush’s fault. Yup, this must be a “Whipped up” controversy. Go back to watching the Bachlorette.

  • ConservativeTexan

    Here’s an idea for a 5 for 1 trade:
    Dear Mexico, we will trade Crazy Harry Reid, Hildabeast Clinton, Ding-bat Pelosi, Make-up-my-own-laws Eric Holder & President pants-on-fire for the one Marine you are holding in your jail.

    Sincerely,
    The Citizens of the U.S.

    • Discontentwliars

      The Marine is worth much more then that… Let’s add a few more…

      • Thale Taxurfeet

        Turban Durbin comes to mind almost immediately. As do Jackson-Lee, Elijah Cummings, Maxine Waters, Schultz, etc….

        Wait a second. The Mexican’s would have to be mucho loco to accept that bunch in trade.

      • Bill Phillips

        Like John Kerry, Joe Biden, Elijah Cummings, Maxine Waters, AlGore, Alan Grayson, Rahm Emanuel, Bloomberg, …could go on and on …and we’ll throw in John McCain …just to be bi-partisan!

        • ButteryWench

          I see what you did there! 😉

  • Bill Phillips

    All you have to do in order to believe Obama is to take every word he speaks and interpret it to mean the total opposite!
    Obama gives new meaning to LIAR!

  • Mary Mommy Happy 2016!

    Obama “whipped up” the controversy in the first place with trading a deserter/traitor for top 5 Taliban leaders. Obama’s narcissistic ego allows him from never being wrong and take responsibility blame for anything he does.

    I also can’t believe that in light of all that has come out about Bergdahl, that this arrogant moron president would stick to his stupid talking points about “no soldier left behind” has anyone heard him use that phrase before this “controversy”?

    I’m surprised Obama didn’t start parroting Susan Rice’s talking points about him (Bergdahl) serving with “honor and distinction.”

    • Bill Phillips

      Obama must have read the line “no soldier left behind” somewhere …or saw it in a movie …but in ‘real life’ …deserters need not apply!

      • Spinmamma

        He heard about it after he left those people behind in Benghazi.

  • Bill Phillips

    “”Asked whether the Taliban would be inspired by the exchange to kidnap others, he laughed. “Definitely,” he says. “It’s better to kidnap one person like Bergdahl than kidnapping hundreds of useless people. It has encouraged our people. Now everybody will work hard to capture such an important bird.””

    Mission accomplished …eh Barry?

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      Schmart Powah, that’s our POTUS!

    • ButteryWench

      So, just to be clear, who would he consider useless and ok for kidnapping?

  • Amy

    One he whipped up by seizing an opportunity that even his own party had rejected twice previously, without informing anyone. Sounds like he forgot to read his own press this time.

  • Spinmamma

    This is what happens when you live in an isolated bubble surrounded by persons as crazy and anti-American as you are.

    • ButteryWench

      I don’t think she’s isolated. I’m pretty sure she’s one of those that bought into the utopian dream. No matter how badly you want it, this is not Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek where everybody is equal and has no need for money because the federation will supply you with everything you could possibly need.

      • Spinmamma

        ?? I meant our president lives in an isolated bubble surrounded by people of like mind. (<:

        • ButteryWench

          Ok. Never mind. My bad

          • Spinmamma

            Or my lack of clarity.

  • Electradivine

    Good for Obama

    • Spinmamma

      Which part?

    • HerodiousPeaskinner

      What’s good for him? Vitamins? Minerals? Impeachment? I know which one I choose.

      • Electradivine

        Glad that he stood up to the constant criticism towards him . Usually he flip flops like most politicians when they are questioned.

        If you don’t like his decision , especially the far right, you can vote him ou….. Oh wait!! :)

        • ButteryWench

          But he has NEVER sat down with a real journalist and been grilled about any of his actions. All the interviews he’s done have been softball. He stands behind a podium, reads from a TelePrompTer and announces his actions. He by passes congress every chance he gets because he knows he can’t get most of his lofty ideas thru them. He’s signed more executive orders then laws into action and still this country is in the crapper. Now, I understand the Utopian dream that most prog libs aspire to, but it has never worked before and it won’t ever work, no matter who tries it because your always going to have the ones that do the work resent the ones that glom on and suck from the teet of that work

          This is a perfect example of mindless obedience and ‘dead-ender’ loyalty in the face of blatant incompetence and lawlessness.

          When the WaPo, NYT, Lefties in Congress, left-wing media all point out what a bad deal this was, you know there’s something wrong.

          And little electra hangs on to the bitter end.

        Are you stupid or just so poorly educated that you don’t recognize the famous Nixon line that led to his downfall that is now being used without irony by the Obama WH?
        (That’s rhetorical — I actually don’t care).

  • viShuSPork

    I wonder if he’ll take responsibility for the heat being turned up in Afghanistan by the 5 swapped. This man’s arrogance and blatant anti-American motives are making me want to go live in a jungle, somewhere, “Naked and Afraid” until he moves out of the White House. We’ve had some idiots in the WH, but this guy… aaaaaaarrrrrrghhhh!

    Okay, well this confirms it: Obama’s deranged.

  • ButteryWench

    First you need to understand. Progs will not be upset with this because the only danger these 5 terrorists pose to America is to her military. Unless there is another terror attack on American soil, on a large scale, they won’t care.

    • MommaGator

      Another attack on US soil is not out of the realm of possibility. But even if these five Taliban are the ones who plan and execute it, it’ll still be someone else’s fault.

  • Earl Sullivan
