    Only it isn't. Republicans want to lynch Obama for doing what they asked be done. The proof is in their words. Not parsing what you think they said.

    I'm discussing the fact that Republicans agreed with bringing back Obama, until they had a change of heart, after he was actually brought back.

    There is no political tactic and strategy here. They actively called for Berghdal to be brought using any available means. Then, they changed their minds. As you said: Catch-22.

    He was representing his constituent.
    And surely he didn't know all that we know now.
    And the Congressman has long been a most conservative GOP .

    Wasn't it Susan Rice, when she was Ambassador to the U.N., who went on the Sunday talk shows to peddle the baloney that the murders of U.S. diplomatic personnel in Benghazi was caused by a video that insulted Mohammed? She also insisted that Mr. Bergdahl "served his country with honor and distinction." Just those two claims, by themselves, are enough to make her a world-class liar--perfectly suited to serve in the administration of the biggest damned liar of all, B. Hussein Obama.

    The OP cited an article stating a news reality. There was all of 2 sentences in there attributed to John McCain, one of which was expressing confidence in the DoD to investigate and resolve. The OP didnt attack Obama. And in response to the facts regarding Bergdahl...you have posted a never ending diatribe about...the other guys.

    Ironic...considering.

    I know a dog whistle word when I hear it--I know just what "lynch" refers to. Once again, reich-wing bigots are hating on our president for no reason except that he is an African-American.

    LOL !! How embarrassing. Your post and Susan Rice's statements. Obama letting 5 terrorist loose was just disgusting..

    I'm not talking about the trade...I'm talking about the hypocrisy of the right-wing who was condemning Obama for not acting quickly enough to free Bergdahl before they got their right-wing talking points. NP is a perfect example. He was all over this site criticizing Obama for not working quickly enough to secure the release of Bergdahl. Oops!

    Well, you finally realized that your accusation of "irony" fell far short of the actual post. The "new reality" is that Republicans had a change of heart after the guy was brought back. I'm still in favor of having brought him back. Those 5 camel jockies we traded for him didn't have the insight into the US army that a soldier would have. Crazy, I know. Trading somebody who could have given them insight into the US military for any of the thousands of prisoners which we could simply bomb out of the sky any other week. Totes crazy.

    Ironic...considering.
    I don't think you actually know what that word means. I'm not pointing to Republicans because of what they're doing, I'm laughing at their demonstrable hypocrisy. As MMC said: This was going to be a catch-22 for Obama. Bring him back? Republicans complain about trading him. Keep him there? Complain about not bringing him back.
