Obama Forgives a Traitor

Help me understand this… Obama rattles his war saber at Russia over information they allegedly gave to Wikileaks about the Democratic Party, but he forgives a traitor who released classified military information to Wikileaks? I agree with this:

Manning isn’t a woman in need of rescue. He’s a soldier who committed serious crimes. He wasn’t a “whistleblower,” as many of his defenders claim. He just dumped hundreds of thousands of classified documents into the public domain for the purposes of “worldwide discussion, debates, and reforms” without the slightest regard for the lives of others. There is no excuse. Manning is a traitor who pled guilty to a lesser offense to avoid the full penalty for his crimes. He has received too much mercy already. Obama’s commutation of his sentence is a disgrace.

    He is in a men’s prison.

    Liberal media kept refering to this male criminal as “she”.

    Talk about journalistic malpractice.

    Not only did Obama disgrace himself (or herself…who knows these days?), but so did the liberal media.

    This may be a gambit to get a bigger fish. Didn’t Snowden say he would surrender to the US if Manning was pardoned or had the sentence commuted?

    Just wondering if Kevin and Owen know the difference between “commute” and “pardon”.

    I guess you ask that because I’m a bitter clinger to my “guns and religion”?

    Do you know difference between elititst and arrogant liberal?

    I asked an honest question that you could have answered with a few seconds of research in a dictionary.  But you chose not to respond, so we must all assume that you don’t know the difference, and don’t care to learn.

    I am sure the definitions you request exist only in your superior mind, so I will defer to your ultimate authority.

    I gave you a snarky answer because it was a snarky question.


  7. Le Roi du Nord

    It was a legitimate question and a non-answer.  And you have too big of an ego to admit you didn’t know the difference.  And you still don’t.  Now have the last word.

    Great job.  I did not think you could step up your arrogant snark, but you managed to do it.
