    I actually don't even think its enough for Obama to lose his job over, as I don't think the heresay comments from McChrystal are enough on their own for him to lose his job (however the combined actions of his subordinants, his general comments both direct and heresay, and his decision on allowing the interview definitely warrants it).

    All I'm saying is if the heresay comments concerning McChrystal are enough to add to the case to remove him from the job then the least that someone can do to be consistant is to say that heresay comments regarding Obama in such a case as this warrants at LEAST a little investigation into it. Not losing his job. Not impeaching him. Just to actually LOOK into it. That's all. To not completely ignore it while on the flip side using it as a reason to remove a

    And also everything quoted was heard directly by him not through chains of other people.
    Incorrect, in regards to what i'm saying. NOTHING that was quoted in the article that McChrystal said directly about Obama was something that the reporter heard McChrystal said. ALL instances where McChrystal said something questionable things about the President was heard by an aide or a source and then supposedly told to the reporter. There is not a single comment about Obama from McChrystal that was reported by the journalist.

    McChrystal was not charged with any crime. Trying to apply courtroom rules to it is rather absurd.

    The military is not a democracy. He serves at the pleasure of his commander-in-chief.

    Correct, which would be a great argument if I was saying he didn't deserve to be removed.

    My argument that its wrong to act like he "said things about BO" without question when its nothing but heresay, especially if one is also completely ignoring heresay accusations of things Obama has "said".
