Republicans can't have it both ways

Success - Article sent! close

The Republican view of the recovery of the American soldier from the prison in Afghanistan: "Let him rot in Afghanistan. Here is something -- something else -- we can criticize Obama for." If that soldier were a son or a nephew or a neighbor of one of those Republican critics, you could bet they'd be praising President Obama to the sky -- the way they didn't when he got Osama bin Laden. Wow! What a brave, patriotic crew they are!

In my opinion, the Republican critics should go and take Bowe Bergdahl's place in that Afghan prison. I wonder how strong they'd feel about pursuing the 30 day notice before freeing the prisoners at Guantanamo?
