    WHY does Obama want it to be General Patraeus?

    So he can go back to the heddy days of IRAQ and the surge and the Moveon.org crap of 'General BETRAY US'?

    Not sure how that would be a game changer. While most people respect General Patraeus for his loyal service to our country, that does not at all qualify him to step in as President should that need arise. He would be a horrible pick.

    I dont have a problem with it, I love it when liberals get all crazy and nutty.....I'd love to see the contrast between him and Biden or hell Obama....
    He would bring alot to the table, and he would drive the leftwing loons batty.....the more I think about it, the more I like it!

    David Petraeus?

    He's got a pretty sweet job right now.

    Kinda doubt he wants to give that up to be second bananna to a Robot.

    This has been my darkhorse choice and would blow away the Democraps.

    They can't afford to trash him after he is a war hero and now the leader at the CIA.

    He is untouchable, unlike Palin....the media will shit their pants.

    That's a good point...but you have to wonder WHY Obama wants Patraeus.

    And OT a little bit? WHy is Obama looking for dirt On Rubio and other potential running mates?

    OBAMA: ROMNEY WANTS VP PETRAEUS

    Obama campaign looks for dirt on Rubio, Portman

    I like the General, but I'm not sure if he'd be the best pick....


    He could cost Romney the election as much as Palin damaged McCain.

    This came from a unnamed source so I'm not paying it anymore mind than Reid's unnamed source it would be interesting but until someone goes on the record it's nothing.
