            The reason Obama lies (the reason ANYONE lies) is that they get away with it. No one calls Obama out (except maybe posters on these boards) and exposes the lies. I agree with Brian: everything about Obama has been a lie. Where he was born, what his ideology is, what his plan for America is. The US Congress, especially the House, needs to step up and hold Obama and his socialist minions accountable. Only a few have spoken up; not enough to make a difference.

        Alpha males like Petraeus tend to fool around. It doesn’t mean he’s evil, just a guy.

        • Nunaya Dambizness

          Sorry, maybe Obummer coould’ve promised him that kind of deal, but that won’t hold water with Congress. The only difference between him being in office and resigning is this: if he still held his position, he could be compelled to come before Congress and testify in a closed-door, classified session. As a private citizen, Congress can subpoena him to testify, but then it must be in an open session, open to the public and media, thus the classified aspects of the Benghazi case could not be discussed. Will it still be enough to publicly implicate Obama? Who knows? But what I suspect is that the regime knows this, and Obummer will issue an Executive Order declaring ALL information pertaining to the Benghazi matter as CLASSIFIED, in an attempt to keep it under the rug.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ronald.hatt.12 Ronald Hatt

      looks like the “moral fiber”, is non-existant!

  • BobM001

    First of all, THE FBI was “monitoring” emails between him and his “sweet thing”. So why was Eric Holder’s Justice Dept. doing this? With the Congressional Hearings on “Benghazigate” up and coming they figured the general wouldn’t have to testify if he weren’t part of the gov’t any longer. Perhaps there is a “confidentiality clause” once he resigns?. Maybe the general felt the heat of these hearings and didn’t want to be a part of it while employed by the CIA. Maybe this guy will be supoenaed and SPILL THE BEANS as a “private citizen”. If I were him, I’d contact the REPUBLICAN chairman and ask for PRIVATE security to PROTECT HIM. Maybe some retired SEALS. I think this guy could BLOW THE LID off this investigation leading to Obozo’s IMPEACHMENT!

    • PC

      Watergate revisited; Iran Contra rewind. . . you probably are dead on about confidentiality clause . . . someone like Petraeus doesn’t fall because of a woman . . . the whole federal government is cross referencing each other and the CIA is the worst at corrupting anyone. He was smart to resign.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HQROUQ7WH5LL4XEYI4N7E5LZYI Dale

    And now since he resigned he won’t have to report or be asked questions about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Obama arranged this more than likely. However if Patreaus don’t keep his mouth shut he could end up as a dead man, maybe he will anyway. So if Patreaus happens to have an accident or heart attack that takes his life we will know the truth. Also Holder and Clinton are leaving so they won’t have to lie when asked questions. There are others who should be watching their back that know the truth about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1815457097 Rhonda Renee Sessions

      That is the most likely scenario… that’s why Holder’s minions were monitoring the emails between Petraeus’ mistress and himself, to use the emails as blackmail against him, to prevent him from spilling the beans. Both Petraeus and Clinton have been taking steps to stop Obama from throwing them under the bus, covering their butts. Holder is under Contempt from Congress, and being forced to testify before Congress, so he’s going to resign to stop that, as well. They are doing everything they can to cover themselves.

      • gay robertson

    How convenient – we have the Benghazi incident, he’s a big part of it, Nobammy doesn’t want the truth to come out, so Petraeus suddenly leaves over some “extramarital affair” which takes him out of the picture, hopefully to be ignored so he will not be called in front of congress at a later date, and gets peoples’ minds off of Benghazi making them willing to think it was just an affair and to let it go only to be distracted by something else. Not buying it.

    • David S. McQueen

      Petraeus can still be subpoened to testify, retired or not. Hopefully, he will testify and implicate Obama in the Benghazi murders. If Obama knew the ambasssador was under attack and refused to send aid (military or otherwise), I say that’s impeachable.

  • NoMoreMarxistsInDC

    Petraeus was to testify two days from now before Congress about the Benghazi massacre and what went on before it occurred. Any wonder why Obama didn’t want him to testify. I bet Petraeus was set up. How did the FBI know to investigate right before he was to testify?

    • David S. McQueen

      I’ve heard that the FBI was investigating an unrelated case and someone mentioned Petraeus was fooling around. Because Petraeus was in a very sensitive position in national security, the FBI had no choice but to investigate the case.

    Oboy isn’t going to get away with Benghazi like he has so far with Fast n’ Furious. Petraeus is a brilliant military tactician with a ton of fruit salad on his uniform who’d be unlikely to step down over something like taking a babe to the sack. Petty reason to resign. heck even Dwight Eisenhower had a mistress, JFK had a flock, Warren Harding was a notorious womanizer, and Ted Kennedy did his thing betwixt bottles of Chivas Regal. Nobody in high places is a saint as most of congress is corrupt. So I smell stink in the administration and it isn’t the first time. And what about Oboy getting a second go around having never been vetted yet?? The longer the truth remains hidden by a spineless congress or equally spineless investigation,the more aftershock will occur. Oboy has something to share with Napoleon,Benghazi and Waterloo respectively. All corrupt leaders are eventually pulled down off their pedestal and no one is more deserving than Blackbarry.


    You can not believe anything that comes out of this administration when the LIER IN CHIEF IS IN CHARGE!

    I truly respect Patraeus as a man of integrity – I believe his decision, whether or not the reason was an ‘affair, was in the best interests of our country and whatever else ‘they’ threatened him with.

    My guess, Petraeu was confronted with this affair before he was to testify about Benghazi, keep silent or the affair is outed. He chose to suffer the consequence of the affair. His goose is cooked one way or the other. How the mighty fall. He was a fool and as always sexual impropriety is a cause for blackmail. He never should have accepted the CIA position. He was a liability to the country. Shame on him.


    Who cares say the liberals in their arrogance of ignorance.
    When the head of the CIA or one of the top Military Men in the Country is having an extra-marital affair those that help cover it up are lying to the American People and putting them in harm’s way too.

    Gen Petraeus is a leader, gentleman, and loyal American. Those Chicago thugs likely are holding something back and coerced this resignation. If the congressional committee does not. follow through with witnesses regardless of their current employment status, this questionable murder by abandonment will never be proved and Obama will skate along until it is convenient to sacrifice a few more lives for his “cause.” This situation is most likely an act of TREASON.

    Seems quite clear, Obama is hoping that by Patreaus resigning, that will avoid him having to testify before the House. So much ‘cow plop’.

    Why is it that if a staff member has an ‘indiscretion”, they are basically forced into resigning their position. ie fall on their sword. Yet, the occupant of the Oval Office, regardless of who that person is, gets a ‘free ride’? Ol Bill had him Monica, and lied, and was impeached, and was given amnesty. Former members of Rev. Wright’s church
    have told the media that Obama was a member of the Trinity Church Down Low,
    For those who do not understan that term, check out wikipedia.org.

    I think Obamas people knew about this affair, BEFORE, Petraeus was appointed to the position. That way they had control over the man and it also took a potential Republican candidate out of the running against Obama for the Presidency.

    I guess I’m of the wrong generation, but I find it difficult to understand how a man as obviously intelligent as Petraeus would do something as stupid as putting his pecadillos in an email.

  • Vettedon

    As someone who spent a career in the military, I say this stinks to high heaven. What makes me mad is how our country could be attacked again while the majority of Americans don’t care. I watched the flag wavers in 2001 and wondered how many of them were simply fair weather fans who want to be like everyone else–apparently, most were. American’s are fickle fools. Today most people seem to appreciate our military, but that can change instantly. Many of the older people who thank me for my service are probably the same people who once spit on me in the seventies. That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate it; it’s just that I realize many of these people are just doing what is popular at the moment. Waving the flag in 2001 was popular. Now we have a president that doesn’t respect that flag or the country, and these weak-kneed Americans put him in office twice! Why aren’t they on the streets demanding answers?! That’s what irks me.

    I don’t buy the views that this is yet another “conspiracy” to provide cover for Obama. That “emperor” has no clothes as it is.

    No, in my view, Petraeus did what any military commander worth his rank would have done-he admitted his guilt, fell on his sword, and ended his career. Unlike the liars in the halls of civilian government, there is something reassuring about honor being exercised.

  • bobmann101

    I am sure that Obama told Patreaus it would be in his best interest to resign. Patreaus chose to say it is because he had an extramarital affair, because people do not care anymore. This is common and excepted. I think it has to do with Libya. It will not matter. BHO is too popular and all the wrong people love him and will support him to the end no matter what. In fact I thinkl BHO has the money and power backing him that he will remain in office for a long time. He will give amnesty to millions. OK UN, gun control, continue to put us further in debt,( using the Cloward and Piven strategy.) replace the WH logo, help his Muslims take over the US, I could continue with a long list, but…………..


    • GodhelptheUSA

      Bob Mann101 A lot of sense to your post. Your scenario is not beyond the realm of comprehension. There is nothing this fraud president with soro’s backing can’t and won’t do to retain power. I suggest we watch closely the replacements for clinton, panetta, holder and the other rats leaving the (hopefully) sinking ship to see how the balance of power shifts. Don’t forget there’s the possibility of obama replacing three Supreme Court Justices during the next four years due to their age. The only way to forestall or stop this catastrophe is for the Republican controlled House to bring IMPEACHMENT ACTIONS against all this scum involved in the Lybian scandal and hope the Senate has the cajones to act.

      • bobmann101

        Yes GodhelptheUSA, you brought up some every good points, but impeachment means nothing! It is two-stage process that begins in the House of Representatives with a public inquiry into allegations. It culminates, if necessary, with a trial in the Senate.
        Being the Senate has a Democratic majority it would be a waste of time and tax payer money! With illegals pets, felons, dead people allowed to vote I am sure the Democrats will take back the House the next election. Those reading this should write to your reps and tell them we demand to have a reciept confirming who we voted for at every election. Now that the illegals are given drivers licences all they have to do to vote is register an address show their DL and vote. They say that requiring a person to have ID to vote is disinfranchising the poor and the elderly, but it is OK to disenfranchise poor and the elderly when it comes having to show an ID for the many institutions, a very long list, that demand a person show their ID. If we do not have to prove who we are to vote then we should not have to be required to carry ID for anything!

    For what it’s worth, my own personal, uninformed opinion on this matter is as follows:
    1. General Petraeus would not incriminate his department, the CIA, in obama’s attempt to COVER UP what happened the night of Sept. 11th in Lybia. The General, as head of the CIA stated emphatically the CIA DID NOT, AND WOULD NOT, HAVE DENIED HELP TO THE TRAPPED AMERICANS IN THE CIA COMPOUND IF CONTACTED.
    2. This showed the world what liars and cowards the obama administration and those present in the Situation Room were that night. obama’s political aspeations were more important than the lives of the Americans at risk. This list includes the VP biden (a fool), Sec of State clinton (nothing more than a political animal like obama), Sec of Defense panetta (an incompetent liberal with little background in his position – an obama puppet), JCS General dempsey (in my eyes a coward and full of political ambition instead of defense of his country and the Constitution – another obama puppet) and implicated in the cover was US Sec to the UN rice (another obama puppet). This entire list of people should be charged with conspiracy, cowardice in the face of a known enemy, lying to the American people and accomplices in the murder of the four American Patriots, including the Ambassador. They should all be impeached from their jobs, brought to trial and incarcerated.
    3. As for General Petraeus, I am quite certain the obama administration has coerced the General whether it be threat of loss of his military pension, some type of administratve action against his work performance but rest assured – while his extra martial affair is not commendable, it doesn’t hold a candle to the offenses committed by this so called president and his administration. HE SHOULD NOT RESIGN NOR SHOULD THE GENERAL SHOULD NOT BE CHASTIZED FOR ONE INDISCRETION AFTER HIS 30 SOME YEARS OF OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO THIS COUNTRY. Especially by a COMMUNITY ORGANIZER!! What a joke!!
    4. obama should resign his presidency TODAY when you look at his incompetency in the handling of the office of the president! He has, and will continue to destroy this country, while GREAT LEADERS LIKE GENERAL PETRAEUS ARE THROWN UNDER THE BUS OF POLITICAL CORRUPTION AND RETALIATION! obama must be brought to justice as well as the rest of the people associated with this corrupt, evil administration. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!! (FYI – it is not a mistake I did not capitalize the names above as I have absolutely no respect for any of them!)

      GODHELP, i LIKE YOUR STYLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PETRAUS should not leave, OBAMA should leave!

      • GodhelptheUSA

        Thank you Ms. Olson. It’s always nice to hear a voice of reason from the femine side as well.

    • Nunaya Dambizness

      Godhelp, re your Item #2, I must say, you described every one of the players, PERFECTLY, to a T!

      • GodhelptheUSA

        Thank you for your response. It’s appreciated as well as your support for America.

    “I went to the White House and asked the president to allow me to resign.” He is kidding. Since when does anybody need permission to resign. All he had to do was turn in his resignation and walk away. Done.

  • Fran

    They knew this for over a year. They pocketed the affair so they can use it when it is necessary. When the WH believes that it was necessary… Petraeus is expected to” take it for the team”. I’m sure he’s well paid for this action!

  • caskinner

    Something stinks in Washington and it’s not just Obammie. Very suspicious things going on. Oh to be the fly on the wall.

  • Keri

    He IS a man of character! So let’s say he said, “sorry chief, I’m not gonna be your whipping boy today….adios” He WILL testify and be free to tell the truth with no fear of recrimination! One can only hope!

    • caskinner

      He will be able to restore his damaged reputation only if he testifies under oath. He needs to come clean and tell what happened in Benghazi.

  • Believer

    I think it’s more than his affair that he gave for his resignation – when BO gets back from Europe they plan to get to the bottom of Libya. The General was a Republican before getting the job at the CIA under BO – hopefully he will want to clean all his mistakes and
    really let us know exactly what happened and what the WH knew and when they knew. Being CIA chief he knows it all. I’m hoping he really wants to clean this mess up. It sure will help get his reputation back. GO FOR IT GENERAL.

  • katydid

    Clinton didnt resign!

  • 67-33. Oklahoma did its job.

    was it a girl or a guy he had an affair with. I bet he was bangin Chris Stephens. Obama hasnt appointed a straight person yet.

    • dHb

      Consider the possibility that “bathhouse Barry” (the moniker gays in Chicago had for him) hooked up with Stevens in a bathhouse in Chicago and could not risk him being captured and tortured so he had to let him die. Is that too far-fetched for this president?

  • Nunaya Dambizness

    So here’s what I wanna know. I saw this Broadwell gal’s interview with Jon Stewart, where she says she got the idea to do this book as her Ph.D. thesis and just called/e-mailed Petraeus and told him she was doing it and then just showed up in Afghanistan. And she had met him before and he had given her his business card and offered his help with research projects she may have been working on. OK, so it can’t have been too hard to discern the fact that Petraeus knew/knew of her. Since I dont think it would be that easy for your average American to just decide to go to Afghanistan and show up at Petraeus’ office wanting to interview him, someone would’ve had to have granted her access to go there. (from her TV interview, she made it sound like she just showed up out of the blue, so it’s not clear whether it was Petraeus who cleared the way for her or someone else). So here’s the $64,000 quyestion: has anyone looked into her background to see if she has any connection with David Axelrod? This is exactly how the Obummer machine would operate! You know the general has met this woman before; he’s someone who may prove to be an adversary in the future (whether through policy disagreements or maybe as an opponent in a political campaig); this woman is looking to make a name for herself through writing a book; hmmm, maybe she’ll be willing to do a little MORE for us if we make sure she can get to the general and put him in a, say, position that’s more advantageous to us? Not outside of the realm of the Obama/Axelrod playbook…

    • dHb

      Very interesting theory Nunaya and your are right, it is not outside the Obama/Axelrod/ JARRETT play book.

  • GoldenRudy

    Could it be that the Obama regime offered to have a meeting in Marcy Park with the General like the Clinton regime did with Vince Foster? Then the General took the “offer he couldn’t refuse” for the sake of personal and family safety? Could it have been?

    • dHb

      YES, it certainly could have been. Chicago style politics at its best

  • melissasmom

    I just pray that our forgiving God protects David Petraeus from what is a most dishonorable administration.

  • jimbo999

    I’m sure that Petraeus’ resignation had nothing to do with the fact that he was scheduled to testify this week before the Congress on the Bengazi scandal. He now has said that he won’t testify because he no longer works for the administration. Very convenient.

    Hey, the guy is a spy and he knows what to do in situations like this. The woman involved, the general’s wife, and all those involved know that he had to say this in order to avoid Treason charges for his involvement in the weapons sales to Al Quida. Which would you pick:

    1. resign in disgrace.
    2. stand trial for Treason with its penalty of Death by firing squad.
    He needs to be brought to the Congress, in chains if necessary!

  • jimbo999

    Holder and Clinton should both be brought before the Congress after they resign also. Holder, Clinton and the General seem to have the opinion that they can’t be called to testify if they resign, that somehow they have Presidential immunity. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Any immunity they may have had evaporates when they resign. Could this be a way for them to distance themselves from the President, either to protect themselves…or to take the fall for him.
    Don’t forget for a moment that these are crafty people with evil intent and the support of the media in general, like a fox in the hen house, with fox loving farmhands watching them.

  • BobM001

    Now we have Jill Kelley into the mix. She is the “person” that notified the FBI about “threatening emails” from who? Paula BROADwell ! Does we have a “love triangle” going on here sportsfans? Maybe Ol’ Dave decided to move onto Kelley “Greener” pastures? Hmmm?

    Petraeus, is just the “tip of the iceberg”……There is immorality, deceit, treachery…. running rampant in the “King obama” administration!

  • Magnum

    Although I can’t condone the General’s extra-marital affairs, he is to be applauded and admired for his conduct in admitting and then resigning. It might be said that such honorable conduct should be an example for many other high ranking government offiicals….especially in the Congress. Unfortunately for the nation, those in question are often so imbued with corruption, graft, and egocentricity that they believe themselves to be immune from the accepted rules of morality and law.
