"Ed and Former Reagan Advisor Bruce discussed how the GOP supported the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl earlier this year, yet changed their tune to adhere to conservative talking points once he was released. McCain has been the poster boy for this political exercise.

Bartlett also stood by President Obama's decisions on the prisoner of war exchange, loud and clear."
This Republican Civil War surely is getting ENTERTAINING!!!!!

. The Swiftboating of Bowe Bergdahl Turns Into a Republican Disaster With Torture Revelation

The Swiftboating of Bowe Bergdahl Turns Into a Republican Disaster With Torture Revelation

The Swiftboating of Bowe Bergdahl Turns Into a Republican Disaster With Torture Revelation
By: Jason Easley
Sunday, June, 8th, 2014, 12:06 pm


The conservative media operation to swiftboat Bowe Bergdahl in order to create another Obama scandal turned into a disaster for the Republican Party after media reports that Sgt. Bergdahl is telling doctors he was tortured by the Taliban.

The AP reported, “U.S. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has told people treating him at an American military medical facility in Germany that he was tortured, beaten and held in a cage by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after he tried to escape, a senior U.S. official said Sunday.”

Republicans have been carrying out a swiftboating media operation that is being led by a former Bush administration official that is designed to smear Sgt. Bergdahl in order to create an Obama political scandal. The revelation that Bergdahl was tortured means that Republicans are not only attacking the credibility of a soldier, but they are attacking a soldier who was tortured by the enemy.

Even by the new Obama era standards for conservative hate, this is low. The possibility that Sgt. Bergdahl was tortured confirms the White House’s reasoning for making a deal to bring Bergdahl home. Republicans have painted themselves into a corner with their attacks on Bergdahl, and they are now showing signs of looking for a way out of their latest self-induced political disaster.

While the attack Bergdahl to make Obama look bad gambit plays well with Republicans, it is making the right look bad with the rest of the country. As usual, Republicans are playing their base as they ignore the rest of the country. They are the ones who decided to attack a POW without knowing the facts.

Republicans politicized something that should have never been political, and now they are going to pay a heavy price for shameful attacks.

. Draft Dodging Republican Senator Refuses To Believe That Bowe Bergdahl Was Tortured

On CBS’ Face The Nation Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss refused to believe that Bowe Bergdahl was tortured by the Taliban, and wanted the story verified he would believe it.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) was asked about the reports that Sgt. Bergdahl is saying he was tortured. He answered, “I think there are going to be a lot of things that Bergdahl tells the Army and the medical folks that he is talking to now that are going to be very difficult to validate, but that’s not to say they’re not absolutely true, but we weren’t there. We have nobody who was on the inside, so we don’t know what happened in his life over the last several years, except we do that he was he was captured and he was in the Taliban’s hands for these number of years, so I just suspect that you’re going to have number one rumors coming out about what he me maybe saying, but then other actual statements that he may make that are going to be very difficult to validate, and again, that’s not to say they’re not true.”

Chambliss’s answer should sound familiar because it is the same sort of language that Republicans used for years when they questioned President Obama’s birth certificate. Republicans spent years saying that President Obama probably was born in the United States, but they can’t be sure because they have never seen his original birth certificate. Sen. Chambliss was applying the same rhetoric in this case. Chambliss was suggesting that Bergdahl might be telling the truth about being tortured, but he doesn’t know because there isn’t someone else there to verify the story.

There are physical signs of torture that can be found through medical testing, but Republicans are still trying to discredit Bergdahl so they don’t want to discuss science and facts. It is unprecedented for a POW to have their claims of torture by their captors doubted, but that is exactly what Republicans are doing. The Taliban is infamous for their use of torture. Bergdahl’s claim falls right into line with what is know about Taliban tactics and behavior.

There is no reason to doubt Sgt. Bergdahl, and the source of this doubt lacks credibility. Saxby Chambliss received five student deferments to get out of going to Vietnam. Chambliss also swiftboated a triple amputee Vietnam veteran to win his Senate seat in 2002. He also said that he would have raised holy hell over the prisoner exchange to bring Bergdahl home.

No matter what the circumstances were that led to his capture by the Taliban, Sgt. Bergdahl put on the uniform and served his country. He has more courage than Saxby Chambliss could ever hope to possess. Chambliss is the lowest of the low, who made his Senate career by attacking veterans.

The more Republicans talk, the worse things get for them. Their attempt to smear and politicize Bowe Bergdahl is showing the real hypocrisy of the GOP’s stance on war and treatment of those who serve.

Why do these liberals rant so much against Tea Party people?
Is this something the mainstream media does a lot?

So your answer is "I am a retarded parrot who doesn't have a clue about what I post or why"?

Is anyone here a member of the Tea Party?
I haven't heard anyone say they were so why does he constantly act like this is a Tea Party forum and he hates us all?
Which MSM people rants against the Tea Party that this parrot is copying?


Liberals - "all emotion and not a lick of sense"
