Feinstein: Petraeus Cheated Because He Had 'No Entourage,' 'No Driver,' Had to Wash Own Dishes By Elizabeth Harrington November 21, 2012
(CNSNews.com) Senate Intelligence Chairman Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) explained on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that former CIA Director David Petraeus cheated on his wife because after retiring from the U.S. Army as a four star general he no longer had an entourage and a driver and had to wash his own dishes when he got home from work.
Heres a man, and you see Time Magazine, and you see the medals he has. You see the stars, said Feinstein. One day, he takes all of that off. Hes in a plain blue suit like this. He looks no different from you or you or you."
Having said that, Feinstein said, theres no entourage. Theres no driver. He gives an order at the CIA. Theres discussion. Theres flak. People dont like this.
And then he goes home to wash dishes, she said. It is a major adjustment. I think we need to look at this transitioning of people. I think we need to look at our tours.
Feinstein added: Now, this is not an excuse.
Host David Gregory then countered: Youre getting closer to excusing men for behaving badly.
I am not. Im not excusing him, Feinstein said. As you look at it, it became more complicated. I think he did the right thing in resigning.

I think she should do the right thing and resign also. Then she should seek help.
Gee - Zus.... Feinstein is as dumb as Pelosi and that’s saying something. What is it about the Bay Area that produces these walking idiots, and how do they keep getting elected?
The fact that they are two identical twins may have something to do with it. 100% alike. Two peas in a pod. Narcissists falling in love with themselves.
Fineswine makes about as much sense as Nutsy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and the rest of the DemocRAT entourage from Californicate.

I think between his pay as CIA director and a retired 4-star general he might have been able to pinch pennies and pay for a housekeeper. Also, I doubt very much that the director of the CIA didn't have a driver.
Never marry a woman who says washing dishes will drive a person mad.
I really wonder. She didn't campaign at all this year - seldom even showed her face.
Give me a break! I wonder how many of those things Feinstein with all her money does?
What is this, satire? David Petraeus got caught in a “honey trap”, that’s what happened.
One should suspect Paula Broadwell’s motives in this. She is a visitor to the White Hut, no? And Jill Kelley’s motives as well. Perhaps neither of them actually met with the Current Occupant, but there is every likelihood that SOME individual with high connections had private discussions concerning the relationships with David Petraeus.
The name of the game is legerdemain. Keep the eye off the real factor, while maintaining a distraction over HERE.
And the sheeple just never catch on.
She’s so friggin’ brilliant!
The liberal mantra of not having to take responsibility for one’s own actions rears its head AGAIN! Notice the reference to “tours”...post war, Bush’s fault syndrome! They can’t help themselves it is their default setting! I do dishes too! Now I’ll use that “liberally”.
The PERFUMED PRINCES NEED TO have their PERKS DOWNSIZED!!
Sounds like he should have been a rapper.
Diane, some of us value our integrity and respect our vows and oaths maybe just a little bit more than you do. We wouldn’t go back on them over drivers and dishes. I realize promises and oaths mean little to politicians, but to some of us - we mean what we say.
Heck, makes a lot of sense to me too.
I’m going to tell Mrs. Winston I need an entourage. And a driver. Sooner the better.
As for washing the dishes, well, that’s absolutely out!
Sounds like a good reason to hire a maid.......I hear Arnolds old one is looking for employment!!!
When’s the last time you think that old bat washed a dish?
I hereby pass public judgement on Petraeus’ affair - they were immoral and evil.
“And then he goes home to wash dishes, she said. It is a major adjustment. I think we need to look at this transitioning of people. “
He’s washing dishes and baby clothes
He’s so ambitious, he even sews
So don’t forget folks
That’s what you get folks
For makin’ whoopy!
I had .00001 percent respect for Feinswine at one time because she’s leaned right on military issues from time to time. POOF!
It would seem that General Petraeus as a conservative can’t rise as high as President Bill Clinton once did with an intern or Senator Kerry did lying to the United States Congress, the latter two are Democrats. There is no apparent explanation for Ms. Feinstein.
... and dishwashing is a breeze for women?
With “leadership” like this no wonder America is in steep decline!
He couldn’t afford a dishwasher? Was she washing his damn dishes too??? I mean golllly!!!
I think there might BE something to how elitists see the world as compared to you peons out there in the hustings.
“Give me a break! I wonder how many of those things Feinstein with all her money does?”
It took her three husbands to finally find a crook to marry in the person of Richard Blum, and she has helped him to make millions at your and my expense. She is the quintessential Jewish American Princess.
Where can I get a subscription?
“Whipped and proud of it!”
I think I’ll let Mrs. Tweezers know about this too. I’ll probably forego the driver, though, because I actually like to drive.
I could not believe that Feinstein said that. I kept saying to my husband: the general does his own dishes?
Sometimes I think Democrats are the stupid party as well as the evil party.
thats what makes this a big deal. what were Broadwell’s
handlers trying to accomplish. and who were they?
back in cold war days the answer was straightforward - KGB/GRU and the intelligence agencies of the Warsaw Pct nations. these days its not clear.
I DON’T think Paula was washing his dishes, Dianne...
and dishwashing is a breeze for women?...Of course it is!!! You use your pointing figure to hit the button saying ON/ CANCEL. Voila.
More confirmation that liberalism is a mental disease.
Is this a joke? Feinstein, our - - Senate Intelligence Chairman Diane Feinstein goes on Gregory and claims this stuff. Its a joke, ya!!! it has to be.
Is there a chance someone else is in big trouble in DC and it is not Petraeus?
(...and it goes all the way up...)
Notice they added Senate Intelligence to the title as some lame attempt to bolster this blabbering idiocy as legitimate rational and acceptable.
Having no military or gov’t experience/background, I’m just asking here: are those ‘perks’ assigned, requested as part of the job position?
Do you really need an answer to that question.
I'm with you on that. Makes no sense. Such a high ranking intelligence official requires a high level of security. Something is missing here.
She is a senator - royalty in the liberal world. She doesn’t wipe her own arse. If we could only get them to actually read the bills before voting.
Feinstein is senile same as McCain. Only difference is McCain does some good from time to time. Such as Benghazi and Susan Rice right now.
“...after retiring from the U.S. Army...”
I am not convinced that he wasn’t cheating BEFORE he retired.
Oh, I do have a question-—
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
If I used a hair brained excuse like that, I would find Mr. Happy in the freezer. AND, I’d be stuck in dishwashing hell for the rest of my miserable life.
Whatever, they need to be CURBED!! Ridiculous perks.
With the demise of Hostess the Twinkie defense is gone.
Welcome to the new criminal lawyer’s dream—the dishwashing defense!
In other words, Petreaus lied because he has to wash the dishes. ok ..... whatever .....
These people are beyond insane. Their view of reality is completely and totally warped. I want my country back!
