The Fox News meltdown on election night was just...incredible.
Poor Jdawg. "Yeah, but, but, in 2000, they didn't know if..."
"Jdawg...it's over, dude."

^ I was just about to post that. She's very constructive with her criticism.
Fair and balanced, even.

Yeah, the fact bubble thing is a good point. It always makes me wonder when you see people calling Obama a communist, have any of them actually met any communists? Because they're really not like Obama :/

Ahmadinejad says anyone stockpiling nuclear weapons is retarded.
Surely if we gave Obama the Nobel this guy can get one. Ahmadinejad 2016.

Is The GOP Headed For The Boneyard?
Would the GOP wipeout in those heavily Catholic, ethnic, socially conservative, blue-collar bastions of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, which Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan swept, have anything to do with the fact that the United States since 2000 has lost 6 million manufacturing jobs and 55,000 factories?
Where did all those jobs and factories go? We know where.
They were outsourced. And in the deindustrialization of America, the Republican Party has been a culpable co-conspirator.
Unlike family patriarch Sen. Prescott Bush, who voted with Barry Goldwater and Strom Thurmond against JFK’s free-trade deal, Bush I and II pumped for NAFTA, GATT the WTO and opening America’s borders to all goods made by our new friends in the People’s Republic of China.
It's bad when Pat has to show you the error of your ways.

There's a scary amount of hate going around, (that probably applies to both posts really.)

General David Petraeus, CIA Director and famed 4-star General of the Iraq and Afghanistan Surges, resigned yesterday. People are coming out and accusing the White House of some sort of conspiracy with what happened in Libya. The truth is much simpler than that.
David Petraeus' wife:
David Petraeus' squeeze:
Apparently he might have been leaking classified intel with Broadwell, who is a journalist. The FBI has been monitoring Petraeus' emails for months after they found out Broadwell may have had access to his personal email account.
Also: The biggest thing that can fuck you up when you try to get government security clearance is having shit like this going on that can be used to blackmail you. Having this on him completely ruins the integrity needed to run the CIA.

Dude should have been promoted for staying married to that one.

For real. I can't even blame the man. But you can't be CIA chief and also be hiding an affair. You can't even be CIA mailroom boy and also be hiding an affair.
Anything you hide, be it affairs, former convictions, former political affiliations, or whatever you're embarrassed about that can be used to blackmail you -- it will kill your intelligence career.

All of that doesn't matter. We're not talking about a childhood clubhouse here. It's not even about stereotypes -- it's about having integrity, being trustworthy. The man set himself up to be manipulated and compromised. I'm guessing it wasn't until the CIA or FBI confronted him about it, that he found out the FBI had been monitoring him this whole time, that he finally decided to come clean about it. It doesn't matter if you've been reliable before. Today's today, not yesterday. Aldrich Ames had been a career CIA analyst for 18 years before he started spying for the Soviet Union from 1985 to 1994. Your past reliability means shit if you start becoming unrealiable. Opening yourself to being manipulated is a danger every person who joins the CIA knows to avoid, especially its director.

No shit. It's what can lead you to become one.
But no, it's because the CIA is all about them stereotypes.
11-10-2012, 11:36 AM
Cause why would the CIA ever worry about its agents being blackmailed? How silly.
