    An affair, ha!–for democrats that’s a resume builder. Two days after the election and a week before congressional hearings. They really do take us for suckers. Just wait, Obama will appoint a goat fucker to head the CIA.

    If Lucy were down here instead of Eleanor, she’d agree with me…an affair would simply mean another star on his epaulets. Not a resignation.

    This is all Benghazi. Valerie Jarrett’s comments are starting to become reality:

    “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

    Throw him under the bus. Can’t testify, can’t defend. Obama had someone set him up with an affair and then blackmailed him to resign and take the blame for Libya. He gets to live in Obama’s Hawaii home for the next four years. When he asks what will happen to me after that? Oblowme says “Benghazt will be the least of your countries problems.”

    Here’s my take…
    Petraeus has the goods on the Won re Benghazi.
    Can’t have that…Jarrett put the word out to find a way to throw him under the bus.
    And supprazz, supprazz…they dug up an affair and forced him to resign.
    Or…worse yet…there WAS no affair!
    They invented one told him that this was his official excuse and he WOULD resign.
    Unless he’d rather be “Fostered”.

    We know one thing for sure…the timing on this is NOT due to coincidence.

    I’ve suspected that Odama bin Laden was assissinated in a squabble with the Chicago Mob over control of the Poppy fields in Afganistam, and I’ve suspected, also, that Fast And Furious was linked not just to drug cartels in Mexico, but to the Chicago Mob, also, to which Obama still has strong ties, also.

    Seriously, like anyone cares if a member of the Obama admin has been dipping his pen in another inkwell. This is him bailing out over the shit in Libya. I don’t doubt that the affair is real but Axelrod and Jarrett probably threatened to hold it over him if to keep him in line. This was probably his big F U to them.

    Don’t buy this at all. Who in the world cares that he had an affair? No one. In these times half the country would celebrate him having an affair. This is obviously corruption most high. I strangely don’t really care anymore. It’s over people. The whole enchilada. All this time making fun of the Mayans and 12/21/12 and all. They were right the whole damn time.

    Clancy is watching this administration….he is wondering if he wrote a book based on all the goings on if the average reader would think it is too far fetched.

    I’ll write the review:

    This tale covers an embattled one term Senator turn President as he struggles with reelection. The economy is in shambles, and unemploymet is at record high levels and a US ambassador was just killed and sodomized. The young unsure President is narrowly reelected. Soon after, the news breaks that a key witness in the death of the Ambassador, a decorated war hero, the head of the CIA, is framed with an illicit affair with a top level beaurocrat in the administration…his own people set him up. The Directors only choice, to save his family, is to resign in disgrace, ending a flawless carreer in shame. The director was a smart man though, and over his years as a General and director of the CIA, he copied secret documents and videos and sent them to Post Office Boxes all over the country he opened in covert names. Read as the drama unfolds in this high level murder mistery….”

    Naw, nobody would belive that shit…..the book would never sell.

    At Petraeus’ level of clearance, any marital affair is treated as a breach of national security, because he is open for extortion. There are no-shit protocols in place for contingencies like this and there is no doubt that information like this would have gone to the White House immediately

    Since this is a security breach serious enough to require Petraeus to resign late in the afternoon of the Friday after election day, then it was serious enough for him to resign as soon as the FBI found out about it.

    How long did the FBI sit on this? When did Obama find out about it??

    Everyone in the media was blind sided by this one, in part because Petraeus was supposed to be an ethical pillar of the Obama Administration. The last thing Bam wanted to deal with in the wake of Benghazi was the resignation of Petraeus, so this could very well explain his silence and otherwise inexplicable behavior.

    Something is very, very wrong here boys and girls. FBI Director Meuller has some ‘splainin’ to do….
