    The Right Didnít Mind When Bush Paid a Ransom to Terrorists

    The Right Didnít Mind When Bush Paid a Ransom to Terrorists

    Republicans are howling (with no proof) that Obama paid a ransom for Bowe Bergdahlís freedom. Funny. They werenít howling when Bush actually did it.

    The Bowe Bergdahl story moves to the hearing stage this week, so weíll be treated to the sight of preening House Republicans trying to press Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on when it was that he, too, started hating America. Meanwhile, over in the fever swamps, speculation is growing about an alleged ďransomĒ the Obama administration may have paid to bring Bergdahl home. That Ollie North, of all people, started this talk is one of those laugh, cry, or shoot-the-television moments that now assault our synapses with such regularity; itís like Judas calling John or James a traitor, or Bernie Madoff aspersing Warren Buffett as a swindler.

    Yes. I watched the hearings yesterday, and the Repiglicans were typically rude, arrogant, and stupid in their statements, and questions.

    For years, GW BUSH et al, allowed many people to join our forces, who wouldn't have qualified under our former requirements, even some convicts, were allowed to serve.

    This poor young man had emotional problems, before he joined, and had been "Released from Duty" by our Coast Gaurd, I believe, due to his problems.

    He was obviously suffering from his emotional problems, when he walked away from his base, since no one in their right mind would walk off their base, unarmed, in that region.

    But as we well know, Repiglicans don't give a flying **** about anything but taking bribes, and getting re-elected. They, and Bush, have done far worse things, which they neverr take responsibility for doing.

    Their behavior yesterday was disgraceful, to say the least.

    Another example, Immigration? Reagan gave three million illegals AMNESTY, then gave executive orders that hospotals could not turn any of them away when they came to emergency rooms, and couldn't pay.

    Hence, our health care costs went through the roof. We all had to pay for REagan's Amnesty results, not just medically, either, since he goal was to provide cheap labor here in America, for his Farming cronies, among others. Reagan had damaged our country more than any president in history, until W. came along.

    Our Costs for Vets, compliments of GW BUSH, and Rumsfeld, who sent out soldiers to war without decent equipment, greatly increased. Bush's prescription drug give-away to Big Pharma, cost us trillions, and he never paid a cent of it! Repiglicans didn't pay for anything they spent throughout Bush et al.

    Our President did the right thing to rescue one of our own. He was entirely within his rights, to do so.

    Repiglicans as always, try to make political gains, with their fake outrage.

    Never could stand FAKES, Whether they are politicians, or internet TROLLS, their quest for attention tells us everything we need to know about them.
