No; if they had dirt on him they would have offered a “shut-up-and-we’ll-let-you-resign” deal. He wouldn’t have come out and said what was going on.

Just like the Secret Service agent who “killed himself (yeah right)” 5 days before the election? Is HE the one who knew exactly what 0bama was doing and where he was during the terrorist attack in Benghazi?

Could be, but it also could be that he decided he would rather come clean to his wife and family than continue to be blackmailed.

Correct - resigning over this is probably a lot nicer and easier than the scandal w Benghazi he knows is coming.

Obama’s did not even start his second term and the rats are already fleeing.

He’s been hanging with the Secret Service. :-}

Nobody saw it coming and nobody believes he’s resigning because of an extra marital affair.That kind of crap just gets you props on the left.

That looks like a possibility but for sure he wants much distance from this Benghazi/Obama fiasco.

He has been blackmailed to keep quiet about Benghazi and other things, and he decided he owes it to his country to come clean even if it harms his marriage.

I'm betting he had more... This is probably a gift for keeping his mouth shut. Will the next CIA Chief be Russian or Chinese? Maybe Arab?

I believe we are going to see what would have happened to the U.S. if Jimmy Carter was reelected. THEY SHOULD HAVE WATCHED 2016!! The first steps toward the weakening of the United States of America have begun.

Obama’s did not even start his second term and the rats are already fleeing.

And more coming. My guess is even his own people didn't think 0 could pull this off, and so most already have cushy jobs in the private sector with firm starting dates.

This illustrates one of Romney’s strengths, integrity.

If there was a shred, it would have been out by now. They must have had teams pouring through every courthouse in every county where he lived.

Sorry Gloria, you had nothing.
