    He has now resigned but it would still be interesting hearing what people think on this question. Thanks.

    He was definitely insubordinate. I wonder how many of us could have resisted. It would be a daunting task.

    Insubordinate. He did not reveal any useful or new information, he was backstabbing his boss with his subordinates.

    Whistleblowing would be if he revealed that policy was being driven by campaign contributions or some other felonious behavior. All he said was that 0bama was clueless, self absorbed and disengaged. And how is that news to anyone? it is like hearing that the pope goes to Mass on Sunday.

    I beleive he had enough of trying to run an engine with 82 octane.

    However, he could have chosen a better way to express his sentiments.

    I do find it pretty distasteful observing all the Hopey Changey butt-sniffers rejoicing in the man's demise. I'm sure if this man had spoke out against a Republican President,these same butt-sniffers would be hailing him as a brave Whistle Blower Hero. These people are very dishonest and shouldn't be trusted on anything.
