    Another pointless billboard masquerading as a reason for business to continue as usual along the same divided highway while No Sleep Til Brooklyn plays on a loop.

    I agree. It’s utterly pointless to point out that the whole contrived controversy over Bergdahl’s release is bulls**t. The pundits and politicians expressing outrage know it’s bulls**t, but their base believe it’s real and they need to use it to score political points against Obama.

    This pretty much sums it up VERY accurately!
    Except for Issa, he doesn’t HAVE a clue…

    Obama does a fair job of scoring points against himself. He doesn’t need that much help.Not thinking through a Taliban prisoner exchange for someone who walked away from his platoon in a combat zone doesn’t help.Maybe they should have followed the existing law?
    Of course since Bergdahl is considered a deserter by members of his platoon ,that would make him a hero to the dems.

    Republicans were clamoring for this exact exchange before they were against it.

    If Bergdahl was ever “officially” considered a deserter, there would be the requisite documents to reflect that fact. Just because some people who served in his unit “believe” he was a deserter doesn’t prove squat.
    .
    SHOW ME THE FACTS, NOT THE GUESSWORK.
    .
    Still, I am not sure I support the practice of dealing with terrorists, particularly returning five proven hostile combatants for one malcontent. (That he was unhappy with his assignment to Afghanistan is documented in his letters to home.)
    .
    But what’s done is done. The swap cannot be undone. Bergdahl has suffered for five years, and until the military gives its final, official, accounting of events, people should reserve judgment. But they won’t.

    As a lifelong Republican, let me state that the current Republican leadership makes me sick and embarrassed!

    Yes, but ONLY if the President was a Republican!
    If a Democrat did it, it’s just AWFUL!!

    Then I guess you REALLY don’t want to see what’s happening in Texas…

    A political Rorschach test. Well done.

    Well, sure.
    But that’s just one side of the highway.
    The other side is that same stuff, but going the other way.
    The whole situation is contrived.
    Politics is the art of convincing people that their personal health, welfare and happiness are subordinate to the needs of the state.
    We get the Patriot Act and ban incandescent light bulbs, so half the nation cheers while the other half boos.
    Show me a political cause that actually solved a problem or made life better for anybody without the need to create more problems and deny liberty at the same time.
    In the end, the government has all the power and the people are helpless cattle, because that’s what they allowed while they were fighting among themselves and taking strong political action to punish their enemies, their friends and neighbors.
    It’s a pretty sick joke.
    I’m surprised more people aren’t laughing.

    @Tigger

    “Would you feel same way if Obama was a Republican and not a Democrat?”

    I’m not a Democrat and didn’t vote for Obama in either election. I’d feel the same way if Bush were still in Office and the Democrats expressed the same fake outrage over Bergdahl that the Republicans are expressing now.

    Contact Diane Feinstein’s office. She seems pretty pissed.

    The “Moral Majority” of the modern day is the 97% who maintain that the only way to save the world from imminent self-immolation is to establish a global socialist state that will control all use of technology.
    One can never see their self as clearly as they can see others, who are only ridiculous puffed up blowhards selling false hope and control of the people they consider to be lesser in conscience and morality than they are.
