I guess, if you are of a generous mind, you could say he wanted to continue serving his country...
but I think he picked the wrong administration and they used him as window dressing...and he let them.
Too bad....

Actually, I mean SMART... Anyone who actually thinks that he/she is working for the Administration is probably like minded or stupid. The politically smart folks will be leaving in a hurry... of course, they need to be watched carefully, after all, they seemed to think that they would succeed here... I’d say, they should be banned from any public office in the future - but that is just me...

Hindenburg called in Bruening and told him to resign.

I heard this on Fox - recall that Jones was quoted in Woodward’s book calling Axelrod the ultimate “spindoctor.”

Goodbye, General Jones.

“President Barack Obama blasted opposition fund-raisers at a campaign rally Thursday, charging that they solicited foreign donations and pumped the millions of dollars they received into congressional races.”

HOW MANY UNVERIFIED, ILLEGAL JILLIONS CAME INTO HIS CAMPAIGN FROM THE GAZA STRIP, ARAB NATIONS, ETC. ??????

Well good for him! He had too cool a voice for that position.

I have had issues with General Jones, however, this is clearly not good. Inner circle shrinking. I believe Obie has moved even closer to a crack-up and demonstrated it in front of the General.

Watch Jones' next move carefully. It could be very telling.

He probably said something like “No, Mister President, you really DO have to do something about the Iranians RIGHT NOW!” and got slapped down.

Yup .. good-bye, Gen. Jones, thank you and
God bless you for your likely herculean,
though unsuccessful efforts, to bring truth
and reality to this blockheaded and dangerous
alien CIC.

Think about it. Obama and his people knew that to have any credibility on foreign policy they couldn’t just staff the place with their Chicago hacks. That’s why they kept Gates, got Jones and put Clinton in at State. I know, I know, I can’t stand Clinton either. However, she is seen by the public as someone who knows about foreign policy.

James Jones was asked to serve his country. Something he’s done all his life. Whether he agrees or disagrees with the President, a man like this is going to serve and do what’s best for the country. Put politics aside. Just like Petraeus did when he was asked to take over in Afghanistan.

Now Obama just doesn’t care and he’s going to staff the place with his political hacks. A bad sign indeed. Does not bode well for the future in Iraq and Afghanistan...

Obama is Hindenburg?

I thought he was more the Hitler type.

These times do seem a replay of the last months of the Weimar Republic.

I’ve had several issues with him. I am now starting to wonder whether the General has been the one talking to the press guy we’ve been reading? Nah, couldn’t be. He’d lose his pension.
