I will admit I did not see this one coming, though I suppose I should have.

Just another example of how you have to be care full all the time. 37 years of marriage, a great job, and a pretty good reputation all given up for what. I pray I never am tempted into throwing my life away like that.

The one thing that would worry me more now is who will take the place of him. This could start to get ugly. That position holds a lot of power to be abused.

I tend to believe it was exactly what it appears to be; nothing more, nothing less.

Still, as someone posted elsewhere, "I suppose resigning over an affair beats dying in a mysterious weekend self-inflicted UAV strike."

Now he does not have to testify in the congressional committee investigating Bengazi. In fact Fox says his name is no longer on the witness list...as Arty Johson used to say - VERY INTERESTING...

His only problem was he held two or three important jobs over the last 10 years, ANY of them he would be compromising himself. Back durning the cold war is was nothing for the KGB to set up high office American officals witrh women and sometimes men then use it against them to spell the beans.

His biographer is under FBI investigation right now. Not sure if that's a coincidence or if she's the other woman. I'm sure our media will get to the bottom of this shortly since they are not worried about Benghazi or any of Obama's records.

At one time Petraeus was under strong consideration for Romney's VP pick. Makes you wonder if the Dems knew about the affair and squashed that this summer.

Dude is director of the CIA.

Affair might be an excuse to get out of a burning building.

He stated that he was blocked from taking action on the Benghazi abomination. That was a nice judo move when they tried to push him under the bus.

No way Obingo and the crowd will let him get away with that.

They need SOMEBODY to fall on their sword.
Hillary printed out a paper trail of what went on, is bailing out and has lawyered up.

Is there NOTHING about this administration that doesn't stink to high heaven?

I dont see how or think this would get him out of testifing, he was in charge at the time, i think he still on the hook.

Something not right though, maybe he was blackmailed with this coming out, if he didnt do this or that. Maybe he spilled the beans before they did, wouldnt going to let them hold a threat over his head, maybe he has full plains of testifing now.

Co-writter wa the other woman. been going on for a while

What did Levin think?
Like i said, im thinking and hoping someone was trying to blackmale him over it and he said to heck with them, exposed himself and is going to spill the beans on libya
I may be wishing, but i think that could be a real possibilty with him
I think it could only be one or the other for this to come out right now, he refused and they spilled the beans or he said to heck with them and he did. either way wasnt going to be thier scap goat or cover for them.

They should subpoena him and make him testify. Now that he's out of the system, may make for some interesting testimony...

The more i think about it, the more it would make sense he exposed himself and told them F#% you, and he going to spill the beans libya.
Thier only reson if he refused would be a revenge thing only, he still be spilling the beans on them, and that only make him more inraged to do so.
This could get REAL INTERESTING

One can certainly hope.. Of course if this was Clinton as president Petraeus probably would have already committed suicide....

Instead of the good old days you have to move forward to being positive about the future. To make things better you have to embrace the change, work with it, look for solutions, instead of fighting it. Yea Obama is here to . LOL
