White House: Republicans Are Trying to 'Swift Boat' Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd reported on Wednesday that White House aides complained to him that Republicans are trying to “Swift Boat” Sergeant Bergdahl – suggesting that they are purposely attacking a prisoner of war to bring down President Obama.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, Todd told Matt Lauer Wednesday morning, “I’ve had a few aides describe it to me as ‘we didn’t know that they were going to swift boat Bergdahl.'”

Todd stated that the White House was “caught flat-footed” on the backlash against the prisoner swap for Sgt. Bergdahl.
