On ABC News last night, Jake Tapper ended his segment on the McChrystal firing by saying:
“The president told his staff that if anyone is caught “gloating” over this, I’m gonna come down on them hard like a ton of bricks.”
Now, WHY WOULD THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA EVEN HAVE TO THINK SUCH A THING, LET ALONE, SAY IT???????????????????/............
Red Badger, that is a BRILLIANT observation.
And for all the right reasons, too. Very thought provoking...I could easily see them high fiving each other (you know they are at Rolling Stone) and I could even see him behind closed doors gloating.
He may be an evil jackass who knows nothing about fiscal policy, the military or the Constitution, but he understands slimy politics. He knows, if they were ever seen doing that, it would be toxic.
Most Americans still love their country and want to see it succeed.
