President Obama says Gen. McChrystal's comments "undermines" the mission in Afghanistan.

He said relieving McChrystal of command is the "right thing" to do.

"I will tolerate debate, but not division," Obama said.

"It saddens me to lose the service of a soldier I've come to respect and admire," Obama added.

This from a bastard of a president (he was conceived out of wedlock and daddy barely hung in there 2 years) who attacked a Supreme Court decision.

The presidency is one of three branches of government. He’s not king.

Our COC needs to STFU.

He welcomes debate?????????????????????????????

We noticed how well he behaved during the CSPIN health care summit with the republicans. His response to debate........he won!!!!

We noticed how he refused to meet with Governor Brewer.....until forced to do so and then he concluded their meeting with the big lie about providing troops for the border.

The General was speaking at a private dinner party, not a public blog.

Remember 18-19 *months* ago when soldiers and general criticising our president were heroes?

Remember 18-19 months ago, when “heroic” Democrat Politicians were publically calling Petraus “Betray-us”?

The Hypocrisy rolls on.

Please thank him from an old retiree and you are correct: Petraeus was much better than the current dweeb.

And now the question is: will McChrystal choose to tell us all what he really thinks? We will know the answer to this by watching to see where he goes and what rank he wears. Three and Four star general officers wear the rank of their appointment. No three or four star appointment, no third or fourth star, they revert to the grade of Major General (two stars). On retirement, they normally retire in the highest grade served, but can be made to retire as a Major General if they have fallen from favor.

If McChrystal gets another three or four star job, or retires as a four star general, you can bet that the price paid was to keep his mouth shut. If he’s out the door as a Major General, he will be spilling the beans very soon.

You’re more likely to get Biden than Petraeus since there has been a big, ongoing battle between McChrystal and Biden about strategy and Bidne’s just won it.

McChrystal serves at the pleasure of the president. I don’t see how The One could have continued to keep him in charge of Afghanistan without appearing to be extremely callow.

Of course, he is extremely callow, but he doesn’t need to add yet another example.

Oddly enough when Obozo was a Senator he he was divisive to the President George Bush. So now that the Pissant is the Pissant he will not tolerate divisiveness. Bullshit, Cowshit Horseshit, Pigshit, sheepshit and dogshit. This pissant is divisive day after day. Hell no I will not tolerate his divisiveness. Go straight to hell you sack of pigshit of a pissant in the whine house. you cut down America and the American people on a daily basis. Saying that McChyrstal was divisive is nuts. He spoke the truth about an imbecile .

Like there ever really was a mission.

Obama announced a “comprehensive plan in March 2009” when he appointed McChyrstal.

Then, when McChrystal requested more troops, Obama dithered for months, announcing that he was studing various options. In other words, there never was a comprehensive strategy in 3/09. Like everything else with Commander Zero, it was just a speech that he thought would play well, but there was never a plan.

Then he announced again that he had a comprehensive strategy, and gave McChystal only some of the troops requested.

Then the rules of engagement were so strict that our brave soldiers become sitting ducks, almost helpless to return fire. And we announced that we’d leave in 2011.

You don’t need to be a military expert to realize that Zero just makes it up as he goes along. He says anything that he thinks will sound good at the moment.

I hope Zero is impeached after the November elections.

This is larger than Obama or McChrystal. O is the ultimate schmuck, worse than Carter, but the civilian run the military.
In an ironic twist, guess who Stan voted for?

This would have been an opportunity for Oblahblah to demonstrate magnanimity. He could have laughed it off and said that McCrystal deserved to blow off some steam. “You should hear some of the things we say about Joe and Holbrook after a few cocktails.” Instead, he comes off as a petty pol. Of course, that’s what he is.

"I Welcome Debate, But Won't Tolerate Division"

You lie! And you're wrong on both counts!

You don't believe in debate and you are dictating by going against what most Americans want.

And, you are the most divisive president in history (with more than 3 years left on your dictatorship).

Awfully big of him to tolerate debate. It's so boring but he's willing to put up with it if he must.

Another point, it took BHO how long to approve of half of the reinforcements McChrystal asked for?

And, how long to “not tolerate” words of truth?
