8 Stupidest Arguments Being Made About Obama’s Bergdahl Swap

Liberals find themselves in all kinds of weird arguments when they try to defend Obama.
Check it out:

Despite President Obama’s claim Thursday that he’s “never surprised by controversies that are whipped up in Washington,” the administration and its fans are struggling to tamp down widespread criticism of the deal that traded one soldier — who fellow infantrymen say deserted them — with five top Taliban prisoners held at the U.S. prison facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

It’s a fair bet, given President Obama’s triumphant announcement in the Rose Garden featuring Bowe Bergdahl’s parents, that those in his inner circle severely miscalculated how such a presentation would go over with Americans. As they scramble to respond, they’ve made some stupid arguments in response to criticism. And critics have made some stupid arguments, too. Here are eight of the worst:

1) Critics are saying Bergdahl should have been left behind
2) People who called for his release but are now critical are flip-flopping hypocrites!
3) The motives of Bergdahl’s fellow infantry are suspect
