What a terrible dissapointment. And what a tangled mess when one chooses to
Presidents John.F.Kennedy and Bill Clinton both did it. King's,
Queen's, and Baronets have done it. And even your best buddy does
it. And therefore I am reminded of the legendary and late Cole
Porter's lyrics: Birds do it, Bees do it, Even
educated fleas do it, Let's do it, Let's Fall in Love! Surely and tactiful, even the former Director of the Central Intelligence
Agency, General David Patraeus can do it, and has admitted to doing it.
And by all accounts, if I had, had the opportunity to meet someone as
attractive, intelligent, beautiful, and sexy as Paula Broadwell, I
probably would have DONE IT as well! NB. Respectfully and tactfully.
Long live Mr.Cole Porter! GUSTAVE FERRIER. LONDON.
Interesting timing with the Benghazi hearing coming up....
It's interesting to see the response of the democrats to extramarital
affairs: Kick Patraeus out; worship Bill Clinton.
He derailed his own career knowing history of Generals and Politicians falling
off their horse over the centuris. He not only was taught that in the Military
Academy and through all his career in the military, he taught it and led by
example over those years. He wrote evaluations for enlisted and officers over
those years with that type information included and evaluated. He signed off on
administrative and military justice hearings were this type of conduct moved
people to Fort Leavenworth or to the civilian world, with either a court martial
or non-judicial punishment. Some of those judgements impacted those
people's lives forever. He didn't live in a world that
was lax on being tough on people for this type of behavior unbecoming and
officer, especially with intelligence impact. The top person in the
CIA falling like this as a political appointee with the potential of blackmail
and other forms of subversion is reprehensible for a person of this position.
He should meet the fate of those of the intelligence world with even
more of an impact. How can he be a leader and was just caught. He didn't
stop relationships until caught. Broken sword?
He had an affair. Who cares?
