And there is no evidence from what I see that you are anything but a street thug elevated to an office way above you mental and emotional capacities.

Obama: No evidence ‘from what I’ve seen’ that Petraeus scandal hurt national security

This from the guy who claims he just found out about the investigation a week ago.

I have no doubt that Gen P would never hurt national security.

I have all doubt that the Obamadork could ever help national security.

Well obviously his people only tell him what he wants to hear as exhibited by the fact he wasn’t told for months about the Generals, days for Benghazi or anything else for that matter.

In the Presser of the President, he did a lot of eh...and ...a...
Never once did he mention cuts in spending, it was always raising taxes. This economy will show if he is right.

When asked directly did you issue specific orders to save the Americans in Benghazi, POTUS says “first thing I said was do everything possible to save them, just as we would whenever civilians or military personnel are in danger”

On follow-up he seemed to leave it that there was no “special” order in this case.

I think he just affirmed that he gave no special cross-border authority to rescue these Americans. He left it to normal status, no special rescue. The special forces on the tarmac in Sigonella had to stand down as a result.

Leave it. Some other dog will come along and eat it, kind of like the media and the parasites who vote for Obama.

So sacking the Africa Command General, the NATO General, and the head of the CIA, by itself, isn't damaging to national security?

Obama is deep into CYA now for being disengaged and asleep at the wheel.

That reminds me, we have about 1000 gallons of 0bama right now in an underground tank. I have it pumped every 2 years, and it's that time again...

I’m glad we’re talking about Obama. I was feeling pretty sluggish earlier, left an Obama in the men’s room, and I feel so much better.

If only getting rid of this president would be that easy!

There's no evidence from what I've seen ... that I've done anything wrong here. Not me, that's not on me. I didn't do that. That's not mine. (long pause) When I came into office, I inherited ... a lot of stuff, so that's not me. Not mine. No. No way. Mmmm mmm mmm. OK? You journalists, you know what? You've been a great crowd! And all you kafirs sitting at home, you can go back to `Days.'

Guess obama hasn’t been told that it’s been reported that the FBI found top secret documents in Broadwell’s house. And that she admitted to taking them.

‘from what I’ve seen’

How about:

'from what I've heard'

“I have no doubt that Gen P would never hurt national security”

Sure he would. He denied fire support to grunts in firefights. He is the author of that policy.

He said that Israel as an ally is a bother because we cannot get arabs to want close friendships with us.

He is pushing for intervention in Syria.

His girlfriends computer had classified information on it.

And he placed himself in a position where he can be blackmailed. I think it’s reasonable to assume he would cave in to blackmail by watching the way he has covered up the truth after Benghazi. He will scrupulously avoid any testimony that puts Obama in a bad light.

He’s a snake in the grass POS, always has been.

And, the FBI reopened their investigation.

Idiot. Apologies for the bluntness here.

Common sense 101. If I have classified information and go out and bang someone who isn't my wife, I'm in trouble. Besides the morals, someone has information that can be used to put me in a compromising position. Pun intended. What the hell are classified documents doing being put in compromised positions?
