    Does anyone else remember the tremendous attacks of General Petraeus when he was testifying before congressional hearings when Bush was in charge? Two of the most harsh senators were Obama and Clinton.

    Odd that they have him in charge in Afganistan since they felt he was lying for Bush and was so incompetent. I guess that was just politics.

    Patreaus is a hero.... which is more than can be said for those who called him 'Betray us'.... He never betrayed us, those who accused him did.

    Perhaps they are willfully suspending disbelief.

    The only people who called Petreaus "Betray Us" were MoveOn.

    Neither Obama nor Clinton called him that.

    I did not say that Obama or Clinton called him that but they both implied he was a liar which is not much different.

    Yea, sucks when every member of the Dems gets tarred with the same brush as a minority of morons.... Hey, that's kinda like the same thing that happens with the GOP.... oh, my, GAWD... it also is reminiscent of the TEA parties. Well, color me shocked pink.
