The FBI investigated Petraeus. He resigned. Why is the country still obsessing over
Edited on Tue Nov-13-12 04:15 AM by No Elephants
his personal life?

The FBI has stated there was no security issue. If there is a security issue they are not telling us about, he should be prosecuted in court.

Ditto if he violated military law before he took over the CIA.

Beyond that, I could care less if he had one mistress or two. or ten.

What a joke. If Democrats criticize Republican General Petraeus for wanting to escalate a war, Petraeus is a saint and Democrats are the devil.

If he has an affair, it's national issue number 1; Republican General Petraeus appointed by Obama becomes a turd and Democrats are still the devil.

Trump tweeted that the world is laughing at us. If they are, it's because of stupidity like this.

I hope Obama learned his lesson about appointing Republicans to important positions.

Let's go back to Republican Leslie Graham's idea. "Elections have consequences."

Republican won elections sure have consequences. Just ask George W. Bush.

Let's make sure Democratic won elections have consequences, too. Or let's just admit that, America gets a Republican-run government, no matter how Americans vote, so the vote is pretty much irrelevant. If nothing else, we could save a lot of money on elections.

Third way means one party rule. Let's go back to a two party systems. It's worked pretty well since Jefferson's day.
