Posted on 11/12/2012 6:22:35 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Andrea Mitchell was willing to peddle the Obama party line regarding the Petraeus matter . . . but Joe Scarborough wasn't buying. On today's Morning Joe, Mitchell dutifully reported that "according to all the officials involved," President Obama was not informed about Petraeus until the Thursday after the election.
Scarborough dropped something of a bombshell, saying he "heard about something like this coming several weeks ago." Said Scarborough emphatically: "don't tell me the White House didn't know. That is not true."

Scarborough calls BS on White House claim not to have learned about Petraeus till after election. Ping to Today show list.
They knew it and saved the information until it should be useful. That is the Chicago way, the Communist way, the canny gangster way.
Obama blackmailed Petraeus over the affairs just like he blackmailed John Roberts over his illegally adopted children.
this is so much more important than dead Americans
Big FNG deal - O-THUG is not going to get called to task for this or anything else.
Just commenting on the Press who seem to be all over this and would not cover Benghazi...
Shouldn’t Joe be trashing conservatives in his role as house Republican for MSNBC?
I hate all media for the crappy job they do. They don't care about getting the truth, only about protecting their own.
Good job on alerting what little audience you have Joe!!
“Obama blackmailed Petraeus over the affairs just like he blackmailed John Roberts over his illegally adopted children.”
Absolutely! It’s pretty likely that Hussein has blackmail-quality info on everyone with any power. A couple days after the SCOTUS decision, Roberts’ sudden change in vote was pretty much tied to the kids’ adoptions. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a chickie or two in his past.
If either of these guys had any conscience or love of country, they’d man up and tell the truth. Selling your country down the river isn’t what anyone desires for his legacy.
Head of the CIA and the Prez was the last to know?? Me thinks not...but Oama will lie cuz Muslims are supposed to lie when it’s to their benefit.
Why does anyone tune in to MSNBC?
I don't think there is any evidence that Robert's was coerced, just speculation. That said, let's assume it's true. Consider this for a moment: someone comes to you and says "It would be a real shame if this thing with your kids were to come out. It would be embarrassing for you of course but I know you'll be fine if it came out. Still, your wife might go to prison and of course we'd have to take the kids and return them to their native country. For their protection we'd make sure you never see them again, of course. Yes, that would be a shame. Now, can we discuss Obamacare for a minute?"
Love of country would be sorely tested.
” Shouldnt Joe be trashing conservatives in his role as house Republican for MSNBC?”
Apparently, Joe was off his meds today and the truth slipped out.
I trust this is sarcasm. Nevertheless, the two (stories) are intimately entwined. Following the thread of one leads inexorably to the other. If, as many of us suspect, Benghazi was either an utter failure of leadership or another fast-and-furious-type scheme, the fact that one of its central participants was already in a compromised position AND LIED to Congress points to foul play at the highest level. Getting to the bottom of this cesspool ought to be America’s #1 priority.
Joey, Joey, Joey.........how quickly you forget Lori and your affair and her murder. Joey, Joey, Joey. Remember Florida Joey, and get off this subject fast before people start to remember..........................
Uh Joe, they're going to tell you anything they damn well please and you will believe it and repeat it. If you don't you will be labeled a "hater". Get used to it, because that's how it's going to be from now on.
Joe’s knee pads must be hurting from wearing them so much.
Only 4 died.....over 30 were at the “consolate.” They escaped to the airport...some seriously wounded. They were abandoned by BO too. When will we hear from them?
“Love of country would be sorely tested.”
Perhaps. I always remember the losses (lives, families, finances) the signers of the Declaration of Independence experienced, as well as others involved in America’s founding.
A person’s character is exposed when there’s a choice between self or the greater good of America. Maybe neither is more wrong or right than the other; it’s just a choice. Then the person has to be prepared to live with that decision, whatever it is.
With Roberts I think there might be a Chuckie in his past of a Chuckie.
WOW!!!! He filleted Andrea Mitchell in no uncertain terms. Good for him.
This story is not going anywhere. This could really be Obama’s “Watergate” with four dead Americans. Can impeachment be in his future??
