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.

KT McFarland thinks it might have something to do with the Woodward book. Or at least what’s reported in it.

When this is all over I think impeachment might look like something that should have been done to avoid tragic events, just as challenging his citizenship and NBC status should have been done.

It could go like that...

Or we can reach down and grab our the bootstraps and take decisive action. I am all for convincing our leaders to push for impeachment, to call for a constitutional convention, to threaten secession if necessary...to do what it takes to see our rights restored.

I know what ya mean about him, but I
still believe it’s possible he couldn’t
be a party to any plans that would
hurt our troops. I pray this doesn’t
foretell more lack of full support
for our awesome miitary going forward.

I think his comments in Woodward’s book
are pretty bold, truly .. maybe he’s been
trying for awhile to get the SOS message
out and finally gave up ‘cause he finally
got that -0 simply doesn’t giveadamn.

The “pocket veto” on the foreclosures bill was un-Constitutional as I understand. Can’t use a pocket veto when Congress is still in session. And it is still in session.

He has done it before: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2426998/posts

But with this resignations comes rumor that Obama is bunkering down to do more rule by executive order and regulatory dictat.

I don’t know. I’ll wait to see what he has to say. He needs to speak out soon, if there’s something wrong going on. He’s talked partisan in the past.

So we can expect more dictatorship from this dictator...more tyranny from this tyrant.

I think you are correct...this is the block organizer now on steroids....he will be running all proclamations. Probably make as many hole in one golfing as the nut case in NKorea too.

Seriously, this is a contraction of power into a black hole (no pun) in the Oval Office. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Get the cabinet ready to vote for the imposition of the 25th amendment.

Yes .. we shall see.

If he drank the kool aid and is now
fully awake, I hope for the good of
the country and our precious troops
he publicly states the truth (maybe
FNC analyst?.. as I’ve long suspected
he has a HUGE ego)... and in a way that
sets up the remedies for this cretin CIC’s
removal ..post haste.

Yes, that’s the Weimar Republic replay!

Depression!

Anarchy!

Rule By Decree!

The thing that the Obama Regime should take note is that the Weimar Republic was overthrown and the socialist members of that government killed or sent to concentration camps...including the last chancellor before Hitler.

Our representative leaders deserve a fair warning. Fight for impeachment or the pitchforks and torches come out.

I’d love to see a rally on the steps where we hand them pitchforks....And tell them, you go in there and you do what you know is right and get this tyrant out...Or we will be here waiting for all of you.

Silence is acceptance. Either they accept the tyrant or they don’t. Make them take a stand. Make the tyrant prove if he’s a chicken or a tyrant.

We should not suffer any more under this man. A nation of laws...we are destroying the very foundation of our country every minute we allow this tyrant to stay in office.

It can't be said enough. We've been working within the political process for a long time and neither party seems to care about the law or traditional American values. If the voting booth isn't helping us implement the Will of the People, then we need to move on to other means. The politicians need to understand that, man up, and do the right thing.

This is very upsetting.

I have been posting off and on all morning with FReepers who don’t seem to understand the “foreclosure bill,” which really relates only to the interstate acceptance of notarizations, and they all think Obama is a hero.

If he’s such a hero, why doesn’t he veto it in the normal fashion? Probably because he’d be overridden.

But I think you’re right, and he will govern (or “rule,” as he once said) more and more by simply ignoring our legal procedures and imposing his will. And nobody, but nobody, seems to be objecting.

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.

Yes he is not listening, 1st reaction from my seasoned Father in Law. Maybe he did crack. When the team of doc's that do your physical tell you to lay off the booze and your POTUS and the press says nada, what does that say?

This announcement did not sit well with me today, all of I could think of was when Reagan was being wheeled into surgery he asked "who is minding the store". Who is minding it now? Our enemies are watching and our Malignant Narcissist may be cracking, not good.
