Blake Hounshell, an editor at Politico Magazine, downplayed Obama's decision to release five Taliban leaders in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl based on the fact that the five terrorists are not "ninjas." On his verified Twitter feed Hounshell wrote, "What's the argument that these five Taliban guys are so dangerous? Are they ninjas? Do they have superpowers?"

Politico's Glenn Thrush, who covers the White House for the left-wing outlet, seems to believe that everything Obama does is okay because President Bush invaded Iraq. Tuesday morning, from his Twitter account, Thrush fired off this non sequitur:

Quote

    Wonder what endangered homeland more: prisoner swap or invading Muslim country based on fake intel resulting in tens of thousands of deaths?
    — Glenn Thrush (@GlennThrush) June 3, 2014


Thrush's tweet resulted in all kinds of responses, most of them critical. One of the first said that Thrush had "jumped the shark."

    @woodhouseb @GlennThrush the leftist hysteria has now "jumped the shark".

When I challenged Thrush on his use of a nom sequitur, he replied, "I live near Walter Reed. I see the Non Sequiturs in wheelchairs at my mall".

How many more Americans and Afghans will the newly-freed Taliban Dream Team put in wheelchairs, or worse?

"I live near Walter Reed. I see the Non Sequiturs in wheelchairs at my mall".


And how many more wheelchairs have there been since your god, obama, took office, eh Glenn?

Not to mention the fact that, under Bush, myriads of terrorists were killed by American troops in Iraq, thus keeping us safer.

These people are mentally ill.  I swear.  They're mentally ill.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Bill Bennett had a discussion with a caller about this. Bennett cited St. Augustine's writings regarding invincible ignorance and how it applies to today's media. The media is so invested in the cause, they are unable to honestly deal with Obama's shortcomings.
