    Right Wing Politics & National Security: Exhibit A: General Petraeus

    Fox News strategic analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters weighs in again as he so often does with a view of what happens or could have happened according to a wingnut view of reality
    Lt. Col. Ralph Peters On Petraeus: "Timing Is Just Too Perfect" | RealClearPolitics
    (Ralph Peters (born 1952) is a retired United States Army Lieutenant Colonel and author. As a novelist he has sometimes written under the pen name Owen Parry. He never served actual combat duty...but he was an expert on Soviet Union ala Condi Rice :lol: Oddball Dude and Crusader Frank?),

    contrast the Lt. Col. FOX News Mouthpiece with Jack Howard Jacobs (born August 2, 1945) is a retired colonel in the United States Army and a Medal of Honor recipient for his actions during the Vietnam War.

    Some analysts said Petraeus's exit was the only way to prevent a lengthy, distracting scandal as embarrassing emails and other details of the affair emerged.

    "Bad news doesn't get any better with age. I'm surprised it took the president 24 hours to accept the resignation. Dragged out it would be much, much worse. It's the best thing for the country," retired Army Col. Jack Jacobs said on NBC.
    No Pass For Patraeus

    We have examples right here @ USMB, people like Charles who claim to be fair and balanced (I'm sure in their own warped minds they are as ignorance is bliss)...
    and we know how right wingers love to attack
    The right wing would sacrifice the economy, and national security if it meant beating on other Americans they view as enemies. They have no political opponents, they only have enemies. They have a mental illness.

    If there were right wingers among the men in Philadelphia, we would never have gained Independence or have ratified the US Constitution.

    Right wingers are a 'faction' of the kind Madison and others feared more than anything. Factionalists threaten cohesion and compromise, the very things needed for a republic to thrive and survive.

    The right wing faction has taken over the GOP. It's time others outside the GOP helped fellow citizens within the GOP battle the enemy within -- the right wingers

    You can browse this thread (hazmat suit warning as willowtwee is the OP) http://www.usmessageboard.com/polit...d-petraeus-submits-letter-of-resignation.html for an example of ideology and imbecility over patriotism and belief in American exceptionalism

    It's all politics all the time with these right wingers. I' not saying left wingers do not do this, they do, but they do not run the DNC or get access to Foreign Policy as right wingers and neocons do. Dennis Kucinich never got his Dept of Peace. Bernie Sanders is not in charge of the Federal Reserve and Jesse Jackson is not Secretary of State.

    reality check: I guess you chose to ignore the fact that the OP said nothing about how bad an affair is.


    when it comes to commenting on affairs it is the right wing who makes politics number one:
    Any comments supporting the Gen resigning came from people like Jacobs who are concerned about the damage to the intel community and the security risks involved. they were not scoring cheap political points

    But right wingers like Steph see everything through a prism of their own warped view of the world. They see a chance to play politics with national security and automatically assume that is what others would do. It's called - projection

    right wingers as a faction with any type of control of message on national security, are a danger to a republic

    See? The President waited to accept the resignation. Some counseled accepting it right away to mitigate damage to the intel community and national security. He did teh right thing, but people like you just can't see it.

    It's all projection with right wingers. They would use any opportunity to score cheap political points and assume that is what others would do -- as with the warped world view of right wingers, it only makes common (to them) sense to play politics with everything

    Paula Broadwell was well compensated for going along with this.

    Poor Steph, she is arguing against a decorated man with a Medal of Honor and others with no dog in the hunt,.. I guess her talking points or lack of them make her feel knowledgeable and informed

    The GOP didn't lose as much as the right wingers did.



    It's been a great week to be a true Red, White, and Blue American!!!
