    Trump made a big mistake. As someone said on the news this morning, you don't ask the question unless you know what the answer is. Trump is way too arrogant and clueless to understand that.
    I don't really know much about the guy but he didn't seem to be bringing baggage and all he wanted to do was build a team around him to do the job the way he saw fit... and trump was denying him that for whatever reason.

    This was your first post on the thread. I read posts on a thread by thread basis; this is the first thread I saw on Admiral Harward, it isn't like I subscribe to your blog. As long as your are going to be prickly, you win the award for run-on sentence of the day.

    Morning Rob...I think for whatever reason it is about Bannon being on the NSC....I am also beginning to think that Bannon's days could be numbered if he keeps causing disruptions like this...

    Harward purportedly didn't care for the cuisine being served from the White House.

    It's real simple in my mind....Vice Admiral Harward wanted to have "his own team" which I think meant get Bannon out of the NSC, and President Trump refused....Harward decided that he couldn't serve the President properly the way he saw fit, and it really is a simple as that...Now for some reason, the President wants to keep Bannon involved in the NSC, when Bannon doesn't really have the requisite creds to be there....Still there are lots of good picks out there, but the President needs to move swiftly.

    I don't have a blog.

    You wanted to pick a political fight with me and make assumptions based on nothing at all. Just be honest.

    He was apparently a great Navy SEAL and had a really honorable career in the military. Worked on the National Security Council for a time. He also had some business experience as Chief Executive of Lockheed in the UAE. I couldn't find any stains on his record and digs against him. They say he would have gotten completely bipartisan support, too.

    I forget, did we debate this **** with Obama?

    Priests and pedophiles, in a thread about the NSA. Interestingly off topic. Not sure why they popped into your head while discussing this, but then again I try not to think too hard about what pops into your head.
