    The Europeans are still trying to figure a way they can take back his Nobel Peace Prize

    Ya know ... I was thinking about something along the lines of why he even got that thing to begin with, and it started me thinking whether he's got his eyes on something like UN Secretary General after he mercifully leaves his current position.
    Or do you think that's not big enough for him?

    Democrat Dianne Feinstein: Obama Broke The Law With Bergdahl Swap....




    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss said the administration violated the law by failing to address serious concerns they had about the deal to swap Bergdahl for five Taliban detainees. Chambliss said he had not had a conversation with the White House about a possible exchange for at least 18 months.

    "It comes to us with some surprise and dismay that the transfers went ahead with no consultation, totally not following law," Feinstein told reporters following a closed door meeting. "And in an issue with this kind of concern to a committee that bears the oversight responsibility, I think you can see that we're very dismayed about it ." .....snip~

    Amazing isn't it!!!!!
    The comments were not about the leagality of swap, the were about getting Bergdahl back. Please pay attention MMC!

    HYPOCRITES! They attack Obama for not getting rid of Holder then they attack him for getting rid of him
    Those criticizing Obama for specifically for the fact of freeing this individual, who demanded previously he be freed would be hypocrites.

    Those critizing Obama for potentially breaking the law in an effort to free this invididual, and who demanded previously he be freed, are not hypocrites. Those are not the same thing.

    Those criticizing Obama for potentially giving away far too much in return for him, and who demanded previously he be freed, are not hypocrites. Those are not the same thing.

    Those latter two instances are not complaining that he was freed...it's complaining about actions taken to get to that end point. Basically, to claim that all these folks are hypocrites one would basically need to suggest everyone speaks, thinks, and acts from the notion that the ends always justify the means.

    Normally yes, but I'm being very specific about the response from one poster who I have observed does not include intent - their slander is blind partisan based.
    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.

I'll be diamonds to German sausages that he sends you a nice polite letter thanking you for your contributions and telling you he'll do all he can. Then, he'll go to congress, make a fuss and **** off on the matter after 6 months. The best part is that Conservatives actually sounded the drums to get him back by any means necessary. Then, like the Judas' they are turned on the administration. Try to impeach Obama on this and just like in 90s when you made Clinton look good over a blowjob. The most you'll get it is a goodhearted action which didn't have the benefits expected.
