    You're getting desperate Grim17, first you claim you addressed the quotes in question. Then when I go into the thread you provided, there is NOTHING about them on it. If you're going to be that desperate to claim you proved something, you should just stop before you actually have to come up with proof for everything else I asked for. It will be a LONG day for you.

    But the Military didn't play ball and have now decided to charge him with desertion which makes Obama look bad.

    I wonder who in the Military is going to pay for their insolence over this ?


    Mornin Fenton. Well you have to remember a couple weeks ago. BO peep said his biggest regret was he didn't close Gitmo.....as he wanted all those who were considered the worst of the worst. Free and able to attack Americans and their Interests.

    What else could be his excuse. If that was his biggest regret knowing only the worst of the worst was left there.

    One thing is certainly clear.....he has increased the Risk of Harm upon the National Security of the US, of every American overseas, and any of our Business interests outside the country.

    Something he should be made to answer for and to suffer consequences over it.

All we knew was that he apparently deliberately made the decision to walk away from his post, which apparently is the truth. It will remain to be seen how this will be handled by all concerned.
    Don't thank him too much. He's basically lying to you.

    Of course not all liberals, but those on your side, have done exactly what's pictured, and I don't recall anyone on your side correcting them, perhaps I am wrong.

    Reality is Bergdahl even if found guilty will not face a death sentence and even in the unlikely case of being sentenced to the maximum, it will be life in prison - he'll probably be eligible for parole after much less time. More likely is he will face a minimum or just a dishonorable. If he does get jail time, I would think Obama would consider exonerating Bergdahl on his way out of office.

    The left will protect Obama regardless of the potential damage he has and will continue to inflict by the White House's incompetence and world view. It's the new norm. There are little to no reasonable Democrats left and those that are, will not stay or will not run for Congress.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Allen West quote - Statement is not wrong based on the new information. The second part is question with regards to the swap. He suggested there's been no indication from Obama about trying to get Bergdahl back wihtout a way to have media "highlights" regarding it. Well, he did take action to get him back...and there were ways of making it a "media highlight", by propping him up as a hero who served with "distinction and honor". At the time of the comment however, publicly, West was correct in his impression

    John McCain quote - Statement is not wrong based on the new information. Clearly indicated he'd need to know the details, but in general he'd support ways of bringing him home. And that an exchange would be something to consider. If I say I would consider selling my house as a means of dealing with my debt, that doesn't mean I agree with you offering me $10 for it. His comment absolutely gives him reasonable wiggle room to still be critical of the actual deal.

    Kelly Ayotte quote - Statement is not wrong based on new information, however it does condone the swap Obama ultimately did. Ayotte claimed that they should do "all [they] can" to find and bring him home. A swap of 5 prisoners is part of "all they can". If she complained about the swap, she was being rather hypocritical.

    James Inhofe quote - Ditto to the above

    Jim Hoft - Statement isn't changed by the desertion news, but is in terms of whether or not Obama was ultimately going to lave him behind. Does not really give an indication of "any means necessary" type approach, so doesn't automatically means based on this quote that he should agree with the actual swap.

    Michele Malkin - Prior to the desertion news really even permeating any line of media, and again doesn't really indicate in any way that she'd have to agree with the Obama deal.

    Rich Nugent - Nothing contradictory based on the desertion news, but like Ayotte and Inhofe, he'd be a hypocrite if he criticized the deal to get Bergdahl after claiming we should do "everthing possible" to retrieve left behind soldires.

    Susan Rice Quote - Absolutely is contradicted given the news of him being guilty of desertion. A deserted is not one who served with "honor"

    -edit-

    My above post was in error in terms of the notion of desertion. For some reason I thought he had previously been charged, and this was the conviction. Susan Rice's comment thus is questionable, not clearly contradicted, as he's not been found guilty of desertion at this point.
