Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Conservatives have kindly given us an illuminating inside look into their world view these past few weeks. Things I've learned:
Reality is a mere inconvenience. Remember when Obamacare would destroy the world? How many of them are talking about the ACA today? The number is pretty much zero. The law proved its worth, and they moved on. There was Cliven Bundy, but that flamed out, so forget he ever existed. So they moved on to Benghazi select committee, but how much are you hearing about that these days? No, now it's BERGDAHL who will finally prove Obama's undoing. Except he won't.

"Leave no one behind" is not a conservative value. The Solider's Creed says, "I will never leave a fallen comrade." The Airman's Creed says, "I will never leave an airman behind." It's a foundational military and American value. For conservatives, it's "leave no one behind, unless Sarah Palin has something to say about it, then it depends." That's simply un-American. Forget about supporting the troops. It's not just leaving our troops prisoner in the hands of our enemies. Conservatives filibustered increased spending on veterans health care. And let's not forget, they'll boo our troops if they happen to be of the wrong sexual persuasion. In other words, support for the troops is now lip service, and even then, situational. It really depends. Beards say "I love America!" except the Taliban ones. Long beards are okay when they're on the face of Duck Dynasty pretend hillbillies, but not okay on the face of Bowe Bergdahl's father. Just because.

Yes. Yes, it is un-American. Hardly much else to say about it.

Perhaps, should he ever return home, Bergdahl will be lucky enough to have some right-winger spit on him.

The 6th thing you should have learned is that we conservatives don't give a rat's @$$ what you liberal think about us.

'The Solider's Creed says, "I will never leave a fallen comrade."'

"Fallen comrade" is a bit of a stretch for a guy who walked off base and by some reports was seeking the Taliban.

Maybe reality is a bit of an inconvenience for Obamabots too.

It will be interesting to see what Bergdahl has to say if he ever has free access to the media. I don't think it will happen any time soon though.

Keeping schoolchildren alive is not a priority. Given the choice between unfettered access to weapons of mass killing or keeping our school children safe, conservatives have made their choice very clear. For them, dead school children are preferable.

The author should have stopped after four.

The last one is pure garbage.

If the right actually supported school lunched I'd say you have a point.

Worth repeating
Long beards are okay when they're on the face of Duck Dynasty pretend hillbillies, but not okay on the face of Bowe Bergdahl's father.

The gay-hating racist Robertson's 15 minutes, ended when the 2nd and much crazier video was posted on you-tube.

If the conservatives don't extricate themselves from the scourge of neo-cons that started infecting the gop with reagan, they are going to disappear.

Spam doesn't mean "Things I disagree with".

Nincompoop.
