Rep. King calls Petraeus affair a ‘crisis’ of ‘major proportions’
The Hill ^

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Pete King (R-N.Y.) on Monday said he found the FBI investigation that uncovered former CIA Director David Petraeus’s extramarital affair a “crisis” of “major proportions.”

“This is a crisis of, I believe, major proportions. It’s not a usual political thing,” said King on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

King’s remarks come as lawmakers have raised questions about why they or President Obama were not informed sooner that the nation’s top intelligence officer was being investigated by the FBI.

EVERYTHING is a usual political thing.

I’m certain the “crisis” won’t go to waste or that it will NOT somehow hurt America.

Eric Holder knew about this in the summer, therefore Obama knew as well...

He made thousands of sexual emails in the past months?

Not sure where I am going with this - But something sure stinks!

“This is a crisis of, I believe, major proportions.” Okay, we agree, now what are you going to do about it? We are growing weary of pontificating politicians.

IMHO...the Oligargchy prefers the Petraeus show...to the “fraudulent election show”

The Bipartisan Oligarchy has really, deliberately disenfranchised THE TAXPAYING portion of the electorate....there really is no obligation to continue to pay taxes as our claim to representation has been revoked by them.

“Direct” disenfranchisement refers to actions that explicitly prevent people from voting or having their votes counted, as opposed to “indirect” techniques, which attempt to prevent people’s votes from having an impact on political outcomes (e.g., gerrymandering, ballot box stuffing, stripping elected officials of their powers).

The issue of taxation without recourse to representation is of course the basis of the Revolutionary War.

Only We the People can fix this.

I hate being cynical - I really do.

But come on - there’s a Democrat in the White House. There are no crises any more. There are no scandals. Everything is fine and getting better and we’re nicer and nicer people. Anyone who says anything bad about any Democrat is being crassly political and needs to be condemned.

Crises? LOL!
This is a GOOD thing!
The all knowing and magnificent Obama and his Democrats knew all about Petreaus' behavior and had it under control. This business demonstrates how wise it was for Americans to return Obama to the White House. Nothing escapes Obama's godlike gaze over all of America.

ALL HAIL OBAMA!

I think the key everyone is looking for is “Did Obama use Petraeus’ affair to blackmail him into giving that lie to the Congressmen that Benghazi was about a movie?”

Which of the follwing should constitute a major crisis:

"Petraeus Affair" American death toll: 0

"Benghazi Attack" American death toll: 4

"Fast and Furious" American + Mexican death toll: 2 + hundreds

So verrrry puzzling whey they would have held those cards so close to their vest, with the Sec’y of State sleeping with a member of the MB, or the sitting President a former or current Muslim with a long-term pattern of association with KNOWN terrorists, right? Gosh, it’s so shocking...!

But all of this proceeds from the assumption that the Prez did NOT know —WHO really believes that the Chicago Machine is more lawful and less aggressive about collecting dirt than the FBI...?

Who thinks Hussein —who STARTED his career by drudging up dirt on enemies— first found out from the FBI? You would have to be very foolish to believe that...

Did Petraeus turn up irrefutable evidence that Hussein wasn’t born here? Did he find something showing that Hussein is AQ...?

The public loves and understands hot boobs, but that is NOT the focus;

1. Hussein went to bed prepared for 40 Americans —not 4— to die by morning

2. 15,000 MANPADS remain on the black market, probably with most of those in the hands of proto AQ operatives. If most are still by lucky chance in the hands of apolitical Libyan farmers it won’t matter much, as few people there will trust our people to keep their help secret, after the way all the Consulate documents were permitted to remain unsecured.

THE STORY IS NOT T&A

The joke is on all the undercover terrorist groups. They’ve wasted a lot of time and effort using men and bombs. I can see them now standing around slapping their foreheads.

Self control and honor are character traits that apply below the waist as well as above it. If a man or woman can’t control their appetites they are dangerous people to put in any positions that require trust; from marriage right on up to the head of the CIA. Not only did Petraeus put his reputation on the line but the security of every American as well. The reason why isn’t really important. The point is that he set a price on the integrity of our security for his personal enjoyment and it was pretty d@mn low!

Let’s see.

In about three weeks it would be the perfect time for a major terror attack or preemptive EMP attack by Iran.

IIRC, Peter King supported Clinton during the Lewinsky fiasco. And the Petraeus thing is a “crisis of major proportions”?

Play along Rep. King, you’re playing a right fool to the media, yep, Bengahzi, Fast and Furious, they never happened, focus on an affair, you too Joe the Schmoe, consertive my rear, when will America drag these turn coat Republicans through the tar and feathers for their conspiring with the libtards! The media consists of elites like Noonan and Coulter whom they drag out to steer the conservative herds towards the Democrats notion of how the GOP should think, all the while they hob nob with the powerful and laugh at the middle class Republicans, traitors, all of them!
