    If I was a parent of one of the dead soldiers that went looking for Bergdahl,
    together with the common knowledge that he walked away from his post,
    I'd sure as hell want him brought home to stand trial.
    And if he's guilty, let him pound rocks for the rest of his miserable life.
    And nail the officers who knew he had walked twice before.

    As for policy, I'd venture to say that every President has made a gut call and dealt with some sort of terrorist group.
    Where we're heading with this is back to Presidents like Reagan and hostages for missiles going to terrorists, revision which I abhor.
    The GOP has proven time and again they will leak confidential info, and many have said they would have this time.
    Democratic conservatives get tired of the short memory of GOPs and the felonies committed by their Presidents and people.

    I find it a whole lot hypocritical that conservative Vets dismiss the analogy with Israel releasing thousands of terrorists,
    since Cons are constantly going for the wedge between Obama and the current Israeli gov't that wanted Romney elected.
    Even more phony to me are the terrorist/traitor Snowden apologists, kudos to Boehner and Cantor here.
    Snowden who has done immeasurable harm to the USA.
    To be honest, IMV the 4th amendment is a PITA that Putin doesn't have to deal with, which makes him look all tough and stuff.

    There's no doubt in my mind that the optics of the Rose Garden didn't help.
    Clearly Obama doesn't give a **** anymore what his detractors think of him.
    But going after Bergdahl's Dad--that's way over the top.
    And still no discussion of Bergdahl's health, that he was tortured and kept in a cage, etc.

    Actually it's up to 200 of those poison pill-laden House bills, many of which future leader McConnell has filibustered himself, so there be no debate .

    Your CON BS needs supporting, not mine- YOU brought the 'over 100 bills tabled' BS cite a source, you at least did that when claiming blacks would refuse to vote for Obama a second time because of the same sex marriage issue, oh and Catholics would abandon Obama over BC, wait and you eagerly drug the Rassy poll in proclaiming Willard would win....

    Why no source for just what crap 'Orange Boner' sent up to the Senate, we already know 1/3 was meaningless ACA votes...

    My guess as to why Harry didn't move the bills the TPs wanted is because the TPs refused to vote on bills Harry wanted to advance and there was always a disgruntled little big man in the GOP senate putting a hold on Obama's nominees....

    It is common knowledge that "Dingy" tabled over 100 bills sent to him by the HOR but it is not that one third of them were due to Obama care.....All I am asking is why did he table the two thirds my left wing friend.

    You can't filibuster something unless it is snt to the floor of the senate.

    I figured you wouldn't have anything backing your claim...

    It's CON knowledge not common knowledge the two are miles apart my extreme right wing friend....

    All I'm asking is you give us a link or two on these TP bills so we can see what they were about and who did what with them.... YOU made the claim now do more than pretend to have 'common' knowledge....

    Nice try but I asked you first for a link and I can't help it if all you read is far out left wing literature....The irony is you are so brainwashed that you don't even believe that "DingY" tabled over 100 bills......that is the sad part.......Now unless you can show me some proof as far as I am concerned this conversation is over. Have a nice evening.
