700 WEASEL CLUB: Pat Robertson On General Petraeus, Paula Broadwell Affair: 'HE'S A MAN'




What a laughable double-standard. These sanctimonious weasels change the morality goal posts like they change their underwear when one of their own has eaten the fruit.




Television evangelist and ultraconservative Pat Robertson doesn't think General David Petraeus should be condemned for his affair with writer Paula Broadwell. After all, she is "an extremely good looking woman" and "he's a man." Robertson excused CIA Director Petraeus for the extramarital affair with his biographer, Broadwell, on Monday's episode of "The 700 Club," the flagship program of the Christian Broadcasting Network.



"Who knows?" he said. "The man's off in a foreign land and he's lonely and here's a good looking lady throwing herself at him. I mean, he's a man."



He also alluded to Broadwell's wiles. "She is an extremely good looking woman. She is a marathon runner. She runs Iron Man triathlons. So she's out running with him and writing a biography. I think the term is 'propinquity.'"


General Petraeus, one of America's most decorated four-star generals, resigned Friday after an F.B.I. investigation uncovered evidence that he and Broadwell had an affair, beginning last September, according to the Associated Press. The general issued a statement admitting his wrongdoing: “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation.”


Petraeus has been married to Holly Petraeus for 37 years. Broadwell is married to a doctor and has two children.

1. The hypocrisy is overwhelming and nauseating

Unbelievable.

Remember these same fools during the Clinton/Lewinsky debacle?

2. Like Billy Graham, Mormonism was considered evil until Romney was running against a ' black man '.

Their hate filled hypocritical stench is over-whelming.

3. So Betrayus is blameless because he's a man?

while Broadhead is 100% to blame? Last I checked, it took two to commit adultery. I guess Robertson thinks "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" only applies to women and Democrats.

What kind of un-Christian, sexist asshole is Pat Robertson?

11. It's outrageous, but just a cursory glance at these RWCF "men" ... throw in a Baker and Swaggart...

and they are Old, Old, Old, and if their own "demographics" were not shrinking, they wouldn't be compromising their own "beliefs". Because like most of the planet, the dominant effect of the Western European Great White Father is closing down. Their god who was originally a Middle Easterner is deserting them...plain and simple...and they are desperately seeking a Burning Bush or a Parting of the Sea, any Sea...truly.
