Let us not forget the great community organizers amongst the founding fathers. Chief amongst them, George Washington… remembered today for his historic trade of five Hessian commanders to retrieve Benedict Arnold.
Washington subsequently honored Arnold in a ceremony at the White House Rose Garden, which confused many since the White House did not yet exist. Though his soldiers persisted in pointing out Arnold had defected to the British and Washington had previously stated he would not negotiate with Hessians, he boldly refused to be swayed by their negativity.
“Remember our Community Organizer credo” he said. “We never leave a man behind.”
Arnold was subsequently given multiple promotions and all back pay he’d missed while in Great Britain. This was unfortunate for him, as he was hung by redcoats after Washington lost the war.
On the Bergdahl for 5 Taliban leaders swap… recycled answers
Congress was brought in to see a “proof of life” video from December 2013 (that’s 6 months ago) that was the basis of the need to rush this swap without a 30 day notice.
I don’t know which is worse… their math, or the decision to blame a video again.
And they sent out Susan Rice to tell obvious whoppers on Sunday?
What the heck, are we in summer re-runs already?
Seriously, Harry Reid even broke out “What difference does it make”.
I’m envisioning the White House staff sitting around with a Magic 8 ball that gives them answers to use in a scandal:
First Susan Rice makes Sunday talk shows (that always goes well) claiming Bergdahl “served honorably and with distinction”.
[You know, except that whole capital offense desertion thing.]
Next… wet-behind-the-ears State Dept wench Marie Harf, who was maybe in elementary when the WTC fell arrogantly suggests the people in Bergdahl’s platoon are not a reliable source of information about what happened.
Then Obama’s staffers whined about “swiftboating” when reality messed up their rose garden photo op where a deserter was treated as a returning hero.
Now we have Brandon Friedman, deputy assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, suggesting Bergdahl’s platoon mates, who inconveniently spilled the truth about Bergdahls “capture” and/or defection… might just be psychos.
So as you can see, the Obama administration continues to violate not only the laws of the country, but the first law of holes:
FIRST RULE OF HOLES “When you find yourself in one…STOP DIGGING”.
By the way, I DO recognize what they’re shoveling. I’ve got horses.
