    the right is much better at predicting the narrative and public reaction to it than the left is. The left misjudges it time and time again.

    It's not easy to see how the public can side with the Republicans here. Soldier was traded for five "terrorists" who were being held at Gitmo (which in the mind of the simple-minded American implies guilt). Soldier turns out to not be well liked by his non-captured colleagues, which implies something is wrong with said soldier.

    Ergo, Obama released terrorists for a man who is not much better. Ergo, Democrats can't be trusted with national security.

    I don't get how liberals don't see that coming from a mile away? Is it that everyone is just too idealistic to see it?
