They will stop at nothing to defend this far left nut in the White House.
The New York Times:
Gov. Rick Perry of Texas says the whole exchange was cooked up to distract the public from the Veterans Affairs scandals, and the talk-show crowd has piled on Bergdahl’s father for his suspiciously long beard.
Cowering politicians now even seem to regret their initial burst of joy that a prisoner was coming home.
“A grateful nation welcomes him home,” Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb., said in a tweet Sunday. The statement on his website was deleted a short time later. “Warmest regards to his family with gratitude for his/their service and sacrifice,” wrote Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., in another quickly deleted tweet.
This duck-and-cover response is the result of the outrageous demonization of Bergdahl in the absence of actual facts. Republican operatives have arranged for soldiers in his unit to tell reporters that he was a deserter who cost the lives of several soldiers searching for him. In fact, a review of casualty reports by Charlie Savage and Andrew Lehren of The New York Times showed there is no clear link between any military deaths and the search.
