Never Mind: White House Now Says Obama Is Responsible for Bergdahl/Taliban Swap After All
Posted By Jim Treacher On 9:45 AM 06/11/2014

One of the best things about living in the Age of Obama is that every day, if not every hour, there’s a new version of reality. It keeps you on your toes!

Justin Sink, The Hill:

Quote
President Obama was responsible for the decision to swap five Taliban militants for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the White House said Tuesday.

The White House sought to deflect charges from congressional Republicans that the administration was trying to pin blame on Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel for the trade.

“The president’s the commander in chief, and the president’s the one that’s ultimately responsible for making sure that we fulfill this commitment that we don’t leave anybody behind,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.


Of course he is. Shame on Monday’s White House for saying otherwise. Right, Tuesday’s White House?

This is the official truth as of the time of this writing. Don’t get too used to it, because it can change at any moment.

Of course, the word “responsible” itself doesn’t necessarily mean what you dumb teabaggers think it means. Witness this lovely construction from Hillary Clinton on her role in the Benghazi attack: “I take responsibility, but I was not making security decisions.”

Isn’t that amazing? She takes responsibility. Also, it isn’t her fault. And that’s not contradictory, because it’s her turn to be president.

Same goes for trading five terrorists for a deserter. Obama’s responsible for that, and if you don’t like it, HEY LOOK OVER THERE!!!

Who knows what tomorrow will bring? The truth is whatever gets Obama through the current news cycle.

Update: “These five guys are not a threat to the United States.” Unless they are. In which case, you will have misunderstood what Hillary meant.

It's those evil Republicans who keep criticizing The One's decisions that are the problem.

If we could just get rid of them, then everyone would believe like they're supposed to...

You'd think that even their most devoted followers would notice that they change the 'facts' whenever it's expedient to do so.

It's impossible to keep track of the brazen lies they've told.
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!

unfortunately you're spot on; that is precisely what democrats think, such as Schumer who now wants to gut the First Amendment so the government can control everyone's political speech.
