GOP Lawmakers Say Obama's Prisoner Exchange Violated Law

GOP Lawmakers Say Obama's Prisoner Exchange Violated Law

Commented Jun 2, 2014 at 08:47:00 in Politics

“Oh don't give me this always bringing up the past stuff. You go to any GOP convention every speaker is touting the greatness of Ronald Reagan as if he was a Patron Saint and how everyone needs to be like him. So why should everyone sit back and listen to you guys spin fairy tales about him and not tell the other stuff YOU leave out. We indeed learn from the pass such as observing behaviors and reactions based on past situations, and for over 30+ years the GOP has excused many of the things they are belly aching about now. Case in point; I brought up the laws Reagan broke and you went into the whole "I live in the present tripe," as if I never pointed out the Laws your political GOD broke, of which the ramifications are still being felt today. It doesn't matter what your guy does just as long as they have an (R) next to their name. Others like myself who are Independent, who personally wrote in Ron Paul's name in twice for President, think that wrong is wrong no matter what party. Not, only wrong when CERTAIN people do it. So once again, worried about laws, LOL!!! You're kidding.”

“.....and all you do is prove my point for me. "IF" this story is true, it only serves to prove that NONE of them should be released, least of which those deemed "most dangerous".”

“Were you mad when Reagan sold WEAPONS to terrorists during Iran/Contra, or when he sold weapons to Bin Laden you know all against the law and everything. Nope you guys want to put the his head on Mt. Rushmore. Who are you kidding, worried about laws, LOL!!!”

“I was 12 when Reagan was president. I am not as concerned with living decades in the past as I am with the behaviors of today. Studying the past can help us develop and improve our future. However living in the past does nothing productive for anyone.

Liberals like to use the Well Reagan did this and Bush did that so why do we care what this president does? Well, we can impact what happens today and tomorrow, but we cannot change the past.”

“We're mad at the Pres. for going behind our backs and freeing this soldier.

We wanted to tie his freedom to Obamacare.

If Obama doesn't get rid of Obamacare he can't free the soldier.

Why not, they shut the country down for it, what's an American soldier?”

“We are mad the president violated the law he signed and agreed to.

Just another lie from our leader.”

“Answers to Benghazi?

How about this. Chaffetz (R) admits yes, we voted to cut security funding to embassies because we didn't think it was important. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6BLMz1chEM

Trey Gowdy (R) Numerous attacks took place before the embassy attack on 9/11 who in their right mind would cut security with attacks happening?

Answer. See Chaffetz (R) and GOP led house.

Even the ultra right wing Christian Science Monitor is buying this.

“Except that Charlene Lamb of the State Department said that the budget had nothing to do with decisions about security at Benghazi.

You cut security funding for an embassy in a country that was basically on fire and you're surprised that it was attacked?

How about you go and sit with those families and tell them just what you said," your family members safety was not a priority to me or my party."

Since you are all about answering questions.”

“Do we know who decided to ignore 6 months of warnings about Bin Laden? Who made that call?

Who decided on August 6 it was more important to stay on vacation and catch fish while Rice delivered the PDB "Bin Laden Determined to Attack U.S."

It was all real time...but it's an annoyance now, to folks like you isn't it? Can't pin it on Obama, or Clinton. It was good enough for campaign commercials right? Dead Americans? Just like it's good for begging for money now...more dead Americans.

Even with that all said, not comment on the families still wondering about the 9/11 of New York from you, huh, too bad right? Their dead family members can't help your party win in 2016. So oh well.”

“Just watched Congressman Mica(R) give an interview.
(Spit out my coffee)

The host asks Mica, "Is this new investigation politically motivated, as the Democrats claim?"

Congressman Mica; (While laughing) No this isn't politically motivated. We are investigating the the White House and this administration lying,hiding and sweeping under the rug what happened at the Embassy......NOW here's what he said in the same friggin breath. "We don't have all the answers and we simply seeking the truth."

So you have already made your conclusion despite not (HAVING THE ANSWERS) yet your hearing isn't politically motivated? Check please.

It would be like a jury announcing a verdict before the opening statement.”

“So if senior officials knew that our diplomats weren't safe and weren't adequately staffed, then why did they continue to withdraw security?

How about, "because you wouldn't pay for the security?" Oh and by the way, can we have 12 more investigations about the original 9/11 attacks that happened on our soil under your party's watch. So we can make Benghazi and you know NEW YORK which had 3000+ more casualties, seem equal.”
