Obama: ‘My Government’ Didn’t Need Congressional Approval For Bergdahl Deal

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb3g3yL4VKk" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb3g3yL4VKk</a>


During an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams, Barack Obama claims – incredibly – that “my government” acted ‘unanimously” in its decision to trade five Taliban commanders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

    It was a “unanimous decision” by “my government.” “I make no apologies for it.”

But surely, he meant to say “my administration,” right? Don’t bet on it.

The deal was overwhelmingly rejected in 2012 by members of Congress, Pentagon officials and the intel community. That doesn’t suggest that the American people’s government was “unanimous” about the deal.

'His Government'??? I think he meant my administration I think...
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

Pretty much out in the open now isn't it.
 
Wait until his last 6 months in office and see what he does. He is a power mad egomaniac.
 
I do believe that it is going to take tanks and force to get him and his 'mommy' Jarrett out of the WH. I do not believe that they intend to leave peaceably. They both intend to kick America's ass for as long as they can get away with it. IMO

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

While I hope that your prediction is not correct, at this point, I wouldn't lay high odds against it...   :shrug:

Can you imagine the outrage if G W Bush had said it...

If that's the case, we only have 2 1/2 more years to go until we discover where the true sympathies of our military lay...
