Chuck Todd told Matt Lauer on Wednesday that the White House was caught flat-footed on the backlash against the prisoner swap for Sergeant Bergdahl.
Ive had a few aides describe it to me as we didnt know that they were going to Swift Boat Bergdahl, Todd said, And Matt, of course, thats a reference to that political fight back in 2004 over John Kerrys military service which became so controversial in that campaign. So theres some fighting words there.

Todd confirmed on Twitter that 'Swift Boat' was the term used by the Obama White House.
Telling the truth about Democrat faux war heroes.
Nobody was “Swift boated”. The Obama regime was penalized for “excessive celebration” in the end zone. It’s an NFL thing. Like concussions and the Washington Redskins.
Interesting that they now put Kerry in the same league as Bergdahl
The truth is being published by everyone from the NY Times to Bowe's home town newspaper. It seems the Swift Boat lobby is as powerful as the Koch brothers ...
Proves again what idiots are running this country today. Idiots all.
If the press, the media wasn’t covering their sorry butts there’d have been a revolution already.
Swift boating is simply the process of revealing the truth about fabricated military claims. When one benefits from false claims, as JF’nK did, the truth is something to be feared and those telling the truth must be vilified.
Wow! You gotta hand it to the “progressives”. Their dogwhistles never cease. Has anyone seen George Lakoff at the WH?
Who ya gonna believe, American heroes or your lying President?
The difference is that Jean Fraude Kerry LIED about his own so-called service. To date, I don’t believe Bergdahl has done that.
It’s democRAT politicians that are lying about Bergdahl.
The corrupt MSM (aka: The DNC Propaganda Arm) is the thin veil keeping the lid on our national powder keg. For how long?
The swift boat remark started in really left-wing circles. I first read it on Democratic Underground. Look for it to be picked up by Democrats. I can’t stand Chuck Todd.
Ha! More specifically ...telling the ‘inconvenient’ truth! :)
Obama is so tone deaf when it comes to the military that this thing blew up in his face. He thought he could just trot out the Bergdahl parents at the Rose Garden and he’d have himself another “I killed bin Laden” moment.
Even before the sketchy nature of Bergdahl’s “capture” become known, sane people were questioning whether releasing the 5 jihadis that the Taliban wanted the most was a good idea.
And Obama’s nonsensical assertion that this is in keeping with our country’s policy of “leaving no soldier behind” (”Period. Full Stop.”) fails the test of argumentum reductio ad absurdum. In other words, if that policy is an absolute, what if the Taliban had asked for the 5 jihadis plus Michelle Obama plus their two kids plus a trillion dollars plus an armed nuclear missile? At some point, you just can’t make the deal.
The difference between Jean-Francois Kerre` and Bowe Bergdahl is that one married into wealth, and leveraged these advantages into high political office, and Bergdahl has not yet made his mark.
But given the proclivity of Democrats to reward their version of “bad boys”, Bowe Bergdahl is almost certainly destined for better things.
Too bad things went sideways for Timothy McVeigh. He could have been another “rising star” today.
The corrupt MSM is broken beyond repair. They are wholly untrustworthy whose only objective remains to guard and protect the left-wing political class.
Lol....Jean Fraud Kerry. Love it!
You’re right, it’s the Rats that are lying about Berhdahl’s *service*, to date.
Yeah...the entire platoon is lying, right? The Koch Brothers must have paid them off. What a pathetic joke. But...RACISM...so Obozo gets away with it.
