… The Bergdahl Case sets a Terrible Precedent …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 28th,2014

.. Bowe Bergdahl is an Army Sergeant who was captured on the battlefield by a faction of the Taliban in the summer of 2009 . He was captured , fair and square , evidently , by the enemy , and has been held captive ever since then …

We reserve the right to come in after them …

.. and POTUS and his White House staff ‘ s actions are causing the DemoRats to break ranks , at least in private ..

.. the level of the blowout could well be really bad . It will not just happen on its own . The GOP is going to have to work , and work hard , in order to win the election . Some things may happen by surprise . They always seem to happen that way . But , in the  end , I think that it could be a very good GOP year …

.. the scandals are causing a great deal of damage to the DemoCraps ‘ own cause . They want to be able to sell the cause of Big Government . They almost always seem to like that . But corruption , incompetence , and lack of care have greatly damaged the cause .
