    It is pretty pathetically sad. The right wing fixation with "God" issues has cost them the last two elections. And these won't be the last unless the sever their ties with the right wing religious nut jobs and start to show some color in their ranks.

    Unfortunately for some, history never goes away.

    BTW, you're the one that claimed the POTUS is held to a lower standard than the DCI.

    Hint: The DCI doesn't have the launch codes to the nukes...the POTUS does...just saying.

    Color me cynical regarding the Petraeus reason/explanation for resigning. Too tidy.

    Could be wrong. Let's wait and see what (if any) additional details come out...

    That's for sure. Right after the election, and after a very short time in office. Now he doesn't want to testify next week. I wonder how many shoes are left to drop?

    The problem is they can't sever their ties with the right wing religious nut jobs, because about half of them are right wing religious nutjobs.

    Re: CIA Director Resigns

    It's a shame to hear this about General Petraeus. He was the theater commander when I was in Iraq in 2007. I met him at the Phoenix Academy which is a foreign military "train the trainer" school. He spoke to the graduates of every single class that went through it. If you remember, this was when he was famous for his strategy with the surge and when he was being called "General Betray Us" by Moveon.org. That a high profile guy like him took time out of his busy schedule to speak to every single class that graduated from there really drove home the emphasis that was placed upon our mission of training and fighting with the Iraqi Army. Things like that are the reason a lot of servicemembers were willing to adopt and buy into his counter insurgency strategy. We did and it helped us "win" the war, for lack of better terms. You just don't see leadership like that now with NATO-centric theater of Afghanistan. His personal life not withstanding, General Petraeus was a great commander and at least deserves respect for that.

    Well, not so far. Clinton hasn't been President for 12 years, yet he's still the favorite whipping boy of the right wing. The real problem you guys have is that the public still likes him in spite of his sexual misbehaviour.
