It's worth noting that Fox's source is Newsmax, which is pretty much just fiction, even more so than Fox itself.

So Petraeus has enough honor to resign over his bad behavior, but he's still craven enough to time the announcement for political purposes.

Makes perfect sense..... to a complete moron, possibly.

Seriously? That deserves some ridicule from legitimate news sources.

But it's news. To the max derp.

So, some guy at Newsmax claims an FBI source contacted him with this information on October 10, and we are to believe that this guy from Newsmax didn't run with it?

Seems legit.

Is it "blah blah blahbity blah" so Romney is automatically president and "blah blah"

Is that the new formula for getting something stupid green lighted on the Politics tab?

Dave Reichert and Eric Cantor both knew about the investigation for 10 days before the election, according to Fox News.

So how does Petraeus having an affair would hurt Obama exactly?
 
2012-11-12 07:14:08 PM
This might be bigger than Watergate.
 
2012-11-12 07:14:20 PM
Ahhhh, yes. Fox News "anonymous source"...have we found out the source who said that Obama personally denied help to Benghazi 3 times yet?
 
2012-11-12 07:15:47 PM
Ollie North got 4 million for falling on his sword. Dont take less than 5 Petraeus!

On Oct. 10, I was contacted by a longtime FBI source who told me that a bureau investigation had uncovered Petraeus' affair with a journalist and that it could potentially jeopardize national security.

The veteran agent related to me that FBI agents assigned to the case were outraged by what were they were told by senior officials: The FBI was going to hold in limbo their findings until after the election


"So being the honorable journalist that I am, I also delayed reporting on this incredibly newsworthy and vitally essential fact that could threaten the lives and safety of everyone in the US until after the election because I couldn't risk releasing it until I was sure it would embarrass the correct President."

Let's be real here, people. The head of the CIA having an affair with a journalist does not jeopardize national security, unless we also know that she's secretly a Red Chinese Agent or works for SPECTRE; and any newsman worth his or her salt knows that if they have a tidbit like that, they have other sources besides "longtime FBI sources" who can verify if it is a genuine news story or just a fluff piece that belongs on TMZ.

Any reporter who had a tip that might impact national security would release it at once; or they're going to do a Woodward/Bernstein on what could be a career-making scoop. They're not going to wait till the President they don't like gets reelected and then release an anonymous story from an unnamed "source" implying that they knew this over a month ago but didn't want to spill the beans because...why? Because they knew it was bullshiat just like the rest of us and held onto it in case Romney was elected and nobody cared that Petraeus was having an affair, because the whole Benghazi thing would go away.

Which is what's really pathetic about this whole thing: Whatever did or didn't happen at Benghazi, do you think ANY of this brouhaha would be happening if Romney had won? Do you think the GOP would even care? Would anyone even notice that the head of the CIA had resigned? No. Four people would be dead, security still would have been cut way back in August, and life would be going on right now and the whole machine would roll on. And this alleged "source" probably never existed in the first place.

Yea, until you went there. She's the Beetlejuice of our time. I commend your only mentioning Taco once.

Some guy? Say what you want about him but he does submit a lot of links to FARK.
 
2012-11-12 07:26:13 PM
So, now the myth has to be that Obama restricted help in Bengahzi because he thought Petraeus was offering him sexual favors.
 
2012-11-12 07:31:02 PM
This is as stupid as the people saying this scandal was engineered by Obama to keep Petraeus from testifying.

1) Petraeus can still testify about Benghazi - and you still won't like what he has to say.
2) The head of the CIA having a messy affair has nothing to do with Obama, so you couldn't use this pre-election to get your guy in.

From this we learn that the right wing:

1) Will try to use dead Americans for personal gain.
2) Will try to use someone else's sex life to besmirch a person who has nothing to do with the affair.

I have to admit, Donald Trump as Secretary of State would be hilarious.

Sec of State Trump: Mr. Ambassador, thank you for coming to this meeting, which I have chosen to host at my fabulous Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino rather than the White House or some other appropriate venue. As you can see, we have the finest suite available to us and the camera crews for my new NBC show, "The Unpaid Intern", are filming our every word.

Ambassador: Mr. Trump, I must say I find this highly inappropriate. I am here today to discuss the war crimes being visited upon my people by our enemies to the north. These are not discussions for the ears of cocktail waitresses, let alone a national television audience!

Trump: Mr. Ambassador, I understand your concern, but believe me when I tell you that as an incredibly rich and powerful man, I am incredibly powerful and rich.

Sounds like Fox News is trying to get back in the good graces of the Tea Party paranoid schizophrenics. Fox did bungle the election for conservatives pretty badly.

I'm confused. Are they planning on going with the Petraeus scandal instead of Libya as their reason to begin the impeachment hearings, or is it some sort of combination-of-both conspiracy normally only found in Glen Beck's (wet) dream journal.

/sorry for that imagery
 
2012-11-12 07:48:23 PM
Anyone who thinks that P4's resignation immediately after the election but before his testimony is suspect is racist and should be thrown in jail for a hate crime.

Perhaps that his mistress was feeding classified information to Karl Rove with the intention of damaging the President's reelection campaign.

This is the real "Benghazi Scandal"...

If you paid a bit closer attention to the real news (and not bought into the lamestream MSM media), you would notice that despite Petraeus' resignation, Obama remains black.
 
2012-11-12 08:12:42 PM
So I guess for the moment Benghazi is on the back burner as Fox goes all Petraeus, all the time.
 
2012-11-12 08:17:02 PM
You'd better add at least two Republicans to the list of co-conspirators, including Eric Cantor, Republican Majority Leader in the House.

Romney still lost, if she was feeding info. Karl really farked this election up for the betterment of all living things.
