How Obama’s media strategy
unraveled with recovered POW

New York Post, by John Podhoretz

What happens when the world’s greatest spin doctor commits malpractice — on himself? That is the question that now bedevils Barack Obama after what have been, without a doubt, the worst weeks of his presidency.From the Veterans Administration scandal to the jaw-dropping events surrounding the swap of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the man with the most remarkable intuitive grasp of how to preserve and enhance his own image the world has ever seen has now tarnished it almost beyond recognition.Who would have expected such a development? From the speech in 2004 that made him a rising star through the campaign in 2008

The press conference gave him a chance to "feel up" Mrs. Bergdahl--coming and going from the Oval Office. A real "hands on" President.

Did Michelle notice?

Ever watch a top spin? It starts slowly then speeds up only to wobble and fall. Obama is the ultimate top. The MSM has gotten caught in the spin and they too have fallen. They have only themselves to blame because they never allowed the TOP to come to its natural conclusion. So when the first American dies at the hands of one of those 5 released terrorists, blood will be not only on Obama´s hands but also the MSM.

Who would have expected it? Everyone here has expected it for almost 7 years. We knew that there was nothing behind the media facade. It just took the sycophants a lot longer to have their eyes opened and their lips pried from zippy´s butt.

Exactly #3. Who in their right mind didn´t know that this guy was all fluff at the time? Those of us who knew that 2 plus 2 equal four knew that what he was saying, did not add up. Those that swallowed hook line and sinker, believed him when he said most transparent administration, you can keep your doctor, we can cover 20-30 million more with insurance that won´t cost us one dime, etc., etc. Problem is, we are all paying for his fluff and no substance. I hope we survive it.

Worth keeping in mind that any MSM "journalist" now appearing to express doubt about Dear Leader Barack Hussein will, before you can say "useful idiot", be gushing over, covering-up for, and colluding with The Smartest Woman In The World in her campaign to become Queen of America. Let´s not pretend that MSM "journalists" could ever grow a conscience. That would be against their mission.

I had a brilliant thought and advice for John Kerry and Barack Huessin Obama. Seeing as how you guys are in the prisoner exchange mode -- how about exchanging 20 million illegals for 1 marine held in a Mexican prison. Of course you lose 19,999,999 votes but we save the same number in food stamps etc.

Also getting tired of the liberal Dudley Dogooders who want the disgraceful deserter examined to the enth degree to give the lib press corps more time to develop a spin or two.

The Obama team has developed a new stratagem which goes like this....
Don´t listen to the boots on the ground or the Libyan president (same was true in Bengazhi ) but have a bobble head in DC fabricate a story for S. Rice or some other spokesman for the govmt.

The bottom line is that the president settled on a controversial, high- risk strategy here in a difficult and problematic manner — and then sought to use his mastery of pop culture to change the story to a more palatable one. But some stories just can’t be gussied up.

Even the lo-fos can´t swallow the release of the very dangerous Taliban five terrorists. At some point it must have sunk in to our lessor-informed that when tall buildings fall during an attack, even they can die from the falling rubble, or, God-forbid, they might have to jump from the 75th floor in an attempt to ....??

#1 and #8 are right on. The President is classless to say the least. The way he held his arm around her waist was analogous to a Hood Pimp escorting one of his ladies around. It´s no wonder that Mr. Bergdahl didn´t tell the Won to act Presidential and keep his bony hands off of his Mrs.?

And now OBama defenders in the press, such as Juan Williams, are now attacking the credibility of the soldiers who served with Bergdahl and went out on those missions to find him. You just had Williams on Fox News Sunday describe Bergdahl as the prodigal son -good grief. I find it very offensive that these same people who keep spouting we leave no one behind are challenging the very soldiers who went searching for Bergdahl.

And as a veteran (non-combat) I find it offensive that a bunch of civilians who have no clue about the US military are running around now spouting about leave no one behind or chain of command.

References to Bergdahl as a ´POW´ are false. The pentagon has never listed him as a Prisoner of War. Initially the DOD declared Bergdahl´s status as "missing/whereabouts unknown." At no time was his status identified as a POW.

Our Jerry Brown Obama mis leaders are releasing hordes of Mexican criminal illegals from prison, and the Mexicans are holding one decorated marine on false pretenses and Obama Kerry Clinton, NONE OF THEM are doing anything about "bringing our men back home"!

Is this insanity or what? Yes, it is the insanity of all the elite totalitarian propagandists having continuous, uninterrupted power, even after ObamaKare lie after lie,
after IRS, NSA, Va lie after lie, leading up to the latest show of poisonous arrogance of singlehandedly releasing the top five most dangerous Islamic terrorists

He had to return those terroists because he screwed up the swap in Benghazi. He´s no spin genius, they went with the best excuse they could come up with, pay the ransom for Bergdahl then return the terrorists as part of the deal . . . but the fact is the Haqqani would have been happy with the ransom money. It blew up because Bergdahl was a deserter and they couldn´t make it work just like they couldn´t make the video work in Benghazi. This guy´s no genius. It´s the ninth inning, he´s behind a run and he´s 0 for 2 right now.

# 15 Absolutely.
It is sickening to see so many on the right ( and Podhoretz is on the right ) continue
to call Bergdahl a POW.
And also he wasn´t AWOL.
The radio chatter and locals report he was actively seeking the enemy.
He deserted and it looks increasingly like he collaborated.
I had an interesting conversation
yesterday with someone who was
in the area after Bergdahl deserted.
This person could not give me specific details because of
the nature of their position at the time.
What they did say was
" Listen to the soldiers ,
believe the soldiers ".

The headline says it all. Bergdahl is a POW, but the Taliban and alqaeda detainees are enemy combatants. Too cute by half.

The neocons advising W screwed this up right from the start. You can´t have it both ways. Either America is defending itself in a war declared upon America and the West by Islamic jihadists, or she is not.

America should have declared war. Captured Taliban and alqaeda should have been treated as POW´s under the Geneva Convention. Any not in uniform could have been questioned and executed as spies. We should have bombed, killed, and destroyed everything in sight in Afghanistan, and in neighboring Pakistan if they sheltered Taliban or alqaeda fighters, until every country and terror group we went after unconditionally surrendered. And until we received those unconditional surrenders we could have legally and morally held everyone we captured until hell froze over.

There are no new paradigms. Just new and clever ways to screw them up.

And yet, obama and his administration continue to commit treasonous acts, almost unimpeded.

It´s almost like the joke Robin Williams had about visiting England, and seeing English policemen dealing with criminals.
The English "Bobbies" would call out to fleeing criminals, saying "Stop, or I´ll say stop again".

Very funny, but not in real life when our "Liar-in-Chief" can break the law and violate the constitution, with no consequences of any effect.

Then suppose that FDR had decided to trade them all to Hitler for a PFC who had gone AWOL and turned himself over to a NAZI patrol - without consulting congress first.....

Watching the influx of unaccompanied minors crossing our southwestern border daily, a reasonable man could conclude that we are living out the fevered dreams of a dystopian novel. The United States has lost a basic aspect of sovereignty. Control over its borders is a relic of the past.Having traversed Mexico with the help of drug cartels freely operating human trafficking networks, Central American minors are voluntarily entering the United States through the Rio Grande Valley.

The NYPD pilots “observed flying object[s] at 2,000 feet in vicinity of the George Washington Bridge, then circling heading toward the helicopter,’’ a police report said. “The officers were forced to change their course to avoid a collision.”One source called it a “very dangerous” scenario.“Although [drones] may only weigh a

The Supreme Court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. showed again this year that it is playing a long game, writing opinions that move the law in small but steady steps in a conservative direction.At first glance, many of its decisions appear modest, and the justices themselves downplayed them as narrow and tightly targeted. But they also set the stage for broader rulings, and liberals voiced concern about their long-term impact.Many rely on well-established rights, such as freedom of speech and free exercise of religion, but extend those rights for the first time to corporations, wealthy donors and

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
