    Gildas.. I'm not sure where you are coming from in your second paragraph, but reading between the lines a bit, I remind you that one president was forced to resign for malfeasance in office, Richard Nixon, a Republican.

    John Charity Spring... General Petraeus was the darling of the right before he was appointed to several positions by Obama. Please quit your ridiculous "guilt by association" trip.

    Civility in conceding power after an election count is not unique to the United States; don't Canada, New Zealand, the UK and other parts of the "Anglosphere" do precisely the same?

    At the same time are we not far too polite to ever successfully impeach AND remove from power a President for serious malfeasance in office? Courtesy can also be great excuse to do nothing when justice cries out for legal remedy. To every thing there is a season.

    Is anyone really surprised about Petraeus' fall? He is, after all, an appointee of the party which fights against traditional marriage at every opportunity. Indeed, Obama has specifically ordered the Department of Justice to not defend the Defense of Marriage Act.

    The Democrats have a specific platform of promoting abortion, free birth control, and welfare, all of which encourage uncontrolled sexuality. In his actions, Petreaus was simply following the program.
