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 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
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.
Re: Say no to BOWhat did Bill Bennett do? I haven't heard.
