Obama did it again. He did the truly “American thing” and the right wing goes nuts. The President refused to leave an American service man in the field of battle and the Republicans embarrassed themselves trying to make him look bad FOR DOING IT. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is on his way home in a lopsided exchange in favor of Americans. It only took five Taliban. In the mind of most American people, except retards driven by the Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh hate machine, five Taliban is nothing compared to the life of one American.
These right wing “political” cowards were willing to abandon this sergeant to make political points—there can be nothing lower even for a Republican Politician. Certain congressional representatives were even willing to find Sgt. Bergdahl guilty of some crime without trial to justify their un-American activity. If that wasn’t bad enough they were willing to leave a man prisoner. Don’t they realize that Bergdahl climbed the ranks from private to sergeant; thus, in the eyes of the Army has merit as a soldier. The House Un-American Activities Committee should investigate them for their behavior. Regardless, hats off to Obama for standing tall and emptying Guantanamo of five MORE undesirables and recovering a POW.
