    It's a tough thing for families when the little brain over rules the big brain.

    Difficulty controlling our inner pig.
    Couple that with having to maintain 2 brains and 3 eyes and well the rest is tabloid material.

    Thank God having an affair doesn't get one fired in the private sector.

    Which is where Petaeus will end up....

    It certainly can if the person you're having the affair with is a subordinate.

    Which is kinda what I suspect is the case here.....just an ordinary affair with a next door neighbor or the cashier down at the Quickie Mart probably wouldn't be enough for this formal of an announcement.

    Isnt that a coincidence?

    Petraeus was very vocal regarding the lack of help during the Benghazi attack and now this affair thing happens.

    Isnt that a coincidence?

    He's the head of the CIA.

    I doubt he'd allow something like that to be put on him.

    I've just figured it out...two possible mistresses...

    Maria Schriver, aas an FU to Arnold so she could say she did it with a REAL Military man.

    -OR-

    It was with HILLARY, and this Benghazi thing is a smokescreen.

    He's not an elected official. I'm not sure why this would really "tarnish" him. Affairs are a reality of life these days. Maybe he and his wife hate each other, or she doesn't put out anymore. Maybe they're more friends than they are lovers. When it comes to stuff like this, I try not to paint with too broad a brush. As most married men or women in here will know, marraiges aren't one size fits all. Furthermore, while I always maintain that public officials have a certain level of charactor to uphold when elected to office, I also state that it's their constituents who should ultimately decide their fate in instances of infidelity. Petraeus isn't an elected official, so that can't really apply here. Ultimately for the admin it's a matter of whether stuff like this affects his job, or what the details are. I don't think the general public necessarily cares who appointed people are having sex with, as much as they do with say a senator or governor. I could be wrong on that of course.

    Let me state though, that this is a "generally speaking" point. Clearly the details matter. If he's boning someone in the office, or some underage male intern, etc. then that might/will changes things.

    BTW, the timing does seem interesting at least. Right after the election. I'm not sure what it means, if it means anything at all. Maybe all sides wanted to wait till the results were in is all.

    Come on Doc ... they save what they have on you until they need to dump you.

    In other news I think there will be a number of November surprises now that the elction is over.

    Petreaus won't testify next week, the Benghazi affair and the drone fired on by an Iranian jet.

    What's left ... stay tuned to Drudge - Fox - Breitbart - WND - The Blaze and the Daily Mail.
