As one of our top Army Generals with a lot of clout with this President to go from the Army commanding forces to the CIA-director was a fantastic move without the vetting of the position and the General's experiences. We minimized that position and allowed that General to go to Libya to investigate the involvement of the CIA with the Department of State and the Department of Defense with the Benghazi incident in September. This is actually the fox guarding the hen house when the administration allowed a tinted CIA-director to investigate himself. It is actually good that the Legislature pushed the bill so the Attorney General couldn't investigate himself or the Lieutenant Governor to investigate themselves in the recent attacks on their ability to govern as elected officials.

The phrase that there is something rotten in Denmark is occurring in our government?

In Utah, this bill submitted and passed in two days became a priority so the school bill SB271 got under the carpet and passed without real discourse and public knowledge to thwart public education once again. "et tu Brute!" The Republicans wouldn't do that for public education would they?

"I don't think he'd want to [run for public office] because he can make more money privately". Good grief! Does making more money always trump providing effective public service?

I still don't understand why it was OK for Bill Clinton to continue as President and the General, who all say was a great wartime leader, had to resign because of marital infidelity. And to think, the same Bill Clinton may well become the first First Man. Or will it be First Husband? Maybe First Gentleman. Oh not Gentleman, that would be too much.

He was the fall guy, the Lt. Calley, at a higher rank to take pressure off the President for the election campaign. Chicago guys know how to do that very well.

There is a pathetic mindset of elites in this country that major moral failures do not end careers. Somehow they feel entitled to a Mulligan.
Since these are the movers-and-shakers, such attitudes are a sign of decadence.
We'd like to think this is only a Democratic Party phenomenon, but it isn't. Take the likes of Bill Bennett and Newt Gingrich.
If character counts it should count for all of us.
