Military walks back Bergdahl

Obama On PhoneBecause it “somehow” got out to the media that Army authorities are “considering” charging Bowe Bergdahl, the Spite House got wind of the coverage and lit up the telephone lines to the Pentagon and US Army Chief of Staff General Raymond Odierno.

The phone call went something like this:

SPITE HOUSE SWITCHBOARD: General, please hold for the president of the United States.

(15 minutes go by)

(clicks)

OBAMA: Ray?

ODIERNO: Yes, Mr President?

OBAMA: Do you like your budget, Ray?

ODIERNO: Yes, Mr President.

OBAMA: You like your job?  Your retirement?

ODIERNO: Yes sir, Mr President.

OBAMA: You like making me look stupid, Ray?

ODIERNO: No sir, Mr President.

OBAMA: Then you put a cork in that shit about Bergdahl and walk it back in the next fifteen minutes.  Or your budget will be cut by half and you can kiss your job and retirement goodbye.

(pause)

OBAMA: Are you understanding me, Ray?  Getting through?

ODIERNO: Yes sir.  Loud and clear sir.

(Obama slams down phone.)

Major General Ronald Lewis, the Army’s head of public affairs, said that report, and another from Fox News, were “patently false.”

Patently false.  Right.

The Army just got its ass scalded because it made Obama look like what he is: ignorant, naive and incompetent.

Bowe Bergdahl to be charged: desertion

Bowe Bergdahl Charged With DesertionAnd with that, do you suppose Mr Obama will remove his tie again and make the announcement in the Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s loving parents looking on?

Ta-ta, Bowe.  See you in Leavenworth.

Asshole.

P.S.
Exchanging Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders from Gitmo doesn’t appear quite so wonderful a trade now, does it, Mr Obama?

Susan Rice Said About BergdahlSusan Rice said Bowe Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.”

Liar.

Never Obama’s fault: Hagel thrown under the bus for Bergdahl

Obama Driving the BusIsn’t it amazing how Mr Obama is never really responsible for anything that occurs in his administration?  Luckily, it’s always the fault of “someone else” instead of Mr Barack Hussein Obama.  As some have said, it’s good to be proficient but it’s equally good or truly better to have excellent luck as well.

Mr Obama seems to have great continuing amounts of luck because, as it turns out, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel actually personally made the call to trade five Taliban leaders for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, not Barack Hussein Obama.

Mr Obama is saved once again.  This is indeed reassuring, is it not?

Speaking of “again,” the UK media again beats the American Media Maggots

From the UKDailyMail.com:

Now the White House says Hagel made final call on Bergdahl as criticism of Obama over prisoner swap mounts

Isn’t it odd that the trade of five Taliban leaders for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl was, according to DC, simply a good thing at the outset.  Nobody noticed.  Move on.

  • Congress learned on Monday that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave final approval for the prisoner exchange that freed Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl
  • Last week, Hagel said the swap was a unanimous decision made by senior officials
  • Hagel is expected to defend the prisoner exchange on Wednesday in an appearance before the House Armed Services Committee

And now that Bergdahl’s primacy was due to his health, and then due to his jeopardy, there is now a NEW meme created by DC: “it’s not Obama’s fault.”

Nor should it be — when Barack Hussein Obama has any number of martyrs and kamikazes set in place in order to politically ricochet negative issues off of his tough hide.

To keep him safe and sipping calm soup nightly.

Sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

- Father John: Sacrifices have to be made, mister.  These people are at war!
– Harry: So am I.
– Father John: How dare you pull a gun in the house of God.  If you don’t believe in the sanctity of the church –
– Harry: I don’t have time to argue religion with you, boy.

And I don’t have time to posit anything but: Hagel, thrown under the DC Political Bus by Mr Obama.

Chuck Hagel confirmed as Secretary of Defense, 58 to 41

Invertebrate GOPFrom FoxNews.com:

Senate approves Hagel for Defense secretary after historic nomination fight

After Republicans blocked the nomination earlier this month, they ultimately allowed for an up-or-down vote on Tuesday. The margin was historically close, with 58 senators supporting him and 41 opposing in the end.

The Left and Demorats are celebrating today, patting the backs of the four Republicans who joined them in confirming Hagel: Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, Richard Shelby of Alabama and Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Of course, the Republicans signed off on the cloture vote.  So, once again, they cave.  Plus, we have those four RINOs who actually voted for Hagel.  Hagel didn’t deserve an “up or down” vote because he didn’t even deserve the nomination.  Hagel, in fact, isn’t much interested in doing anything for the military; one could make the argument that Chuck Hagel eminently dislikes the military.  Lovely.  An antisemite as our Secretary of Defense.

“The political reality is that the Jewish Lobby intimidates a lot of people around here.”
— Chuck Hagel, 2006

The US acts like a “schoolyard bully.”
— Chuck Hagel, 2007

Our new Secretary of Defense: Chuck Hagel.  Thank God Louis Farrakhan supported the nomination of Chuck Hagel.
