The stench coming out of Washington is worse than that experienced when one is downwind of a meat-packing plant!

It should not be a surprise to find an abyss under any of the Obamalatrines.

It is not you, there definitely is something cooking.

Today is the first day that I got that feeling there is something really big going on which has not been reported.

How long has this been. All we’ve heard for the last week is how she works so hard for military families. It appears that everyone is on the take up there.

When there is irony in the ironic, do they cancel each other out?

This is as I suspected.

The General's wife is a far-lefty. When I heard she supported Elizabeth Warren I knew it. Holly was the one who was cozy with Jill Kelley and asked the General to pen the letter helping Kelley with her child custody vs. the Bushite ex-husband.

The Lebonese girls were in with the Democrats.

Yes, and it has 2 flavors - Democrat and Republican.

They’ve had their chance. It is long past time for the Tea Party to run their own candidates. I’m no longer worried about taking votes from the Republicans because they are no longer standing for anything except entrenched bureaucracy.

The depth of lies surrounding this “most transparent” administration is now far greater than the depth of the Earth. What’s worse, the liberal media isn’t doing any investigating of this administration whatsoever. In fact, CNN aired today on Anderson Cooper a story from Kings County Texas about a community that hates Obama. That is the type of “news” liberal media channels are going with in an all out blitzkrieg against the GOP.

The CFPB, created by the Dodd-Frank law, was placed by that law under the umbrella of the Federal Reserve. The funding of the CFBP, which comes from the Federal Reserve, is not subject to congressional oversight.

Combination of bribe and threat. Petraeus has to play ball or the Regime cuts off his already PO’d wife, they face financial ruin and she definitely dumps him. He keeps his mouth shut on the witness stand and maybe Holly will let him grovel back into the doghouse.

You have forced me to take a second look at her ... and doggone it, she does look like a far left Democrat.

No wonder the General had such a sterling career -- he was probably happier away from home.

I’d say that depends upon two things. First, how long ago the “affair” began (if there actually was an affair). And, second, when did Obozo provide his wife this position? From what this suggests, this is a recent appointment, while Petraeus has been having this alledged affair for at least a couple of months. If anything, this is a case of a “hush” position. Obozo doesn’t want Petraeus’ wife to talk.

First try to blackmail him into covering up, then buy him off...

standard Marxist/Alinskite procedure

completely predictable

(note that there is a third method in their book to enforce compliance, namely an auto accident or other snuff job, and the General knows this, too...)
