It didn’t take long for the BS to fly from the left over the “tiny prison exchange” that “Republicans” are making such a big deal about.

Here’s what a liberal blogger for Mother Jones wrote to get the ball rolling:

Republicans are upset over the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. They have several complaints: the president “negotiated with terrorists”; the president broke a law requiring 30-day notice before prisoners are transferred out of Guantanamo; and among a few fringe types, a belief that perhaps Bergdahl was actually a deserter not worth rescuing.

Republicans these days are so hellbent on finding reasons to be outraged over everything President Obama does, there’s no longer any way to tell whether their outrage over any specific incident is real or manufactured.
