Woman Linked to Petraeus Is a
West Point Graduate and
Lifelong High Achiever

The New York Times, by Michael D. Shear

Original Article

Paula Broadwell, whose affair with the nation’s C.I.A. director led to his resignation on Friday, was the valedictorian of her high school class and homecoming queen, a fitness champion at West Point with a graduate degree from Harvard, and a model for a machine gun manufacturer. Paula Broadwell, who wrote a biography of David H. Petraeus, moved into public view on Friday after an affair with Mr. Petraeus was uncovered. It may have been those qualities — and a string of achievements that began in her native North Dakota, where she was state student council president, an all-state

High achiever - but not a lick of common sense. Led around by her lady-parts.

Probably one of those people with high technical prowess but low, underdeveloped emotional intelligence. Common sense tells anyone you don´t betray your husband and kids and get into an affair like this just for the thrill of it.

Now her reputation as an objective historian is ruined. She can spend the rest of her life as tabloid fodder. Just ask Miss Lewinsky.

Mebbe, but judging from that video, she is fashion-challenged.

Some extraordinary investigative journalism we have in this country that within minutes of Patraus´ resignation the "other" party involved is identified. Does anyone else beside me find this interesting.
All this in light of little barry sotereo or whatever his name is still a ´blank´ on his history.

1. More coverage of him/her/this than of, not just Benghazi, but the slew of Muslim 9/11 attacks on the US this year.

2. In a few days we know 100 times more about her than we yet know about Stinky after years.

Not that that means anything. Right?

So sad... for all involved ... even America...

When first in DC, realized a woman could not be successful in marriage, children, and work... only two of three were possible...

Too bad she didn´t chose marriage and children...

#9, agree wholeheartedly.

This woman is a high achiever, and does have a fantastic resume, as others here have said. Too bad she is without honor or integrity (betraying her marital vows, and perhaps in trying to access the General´s e-mail).

MY WIFE’S LOVER

My wife is having an affair with a government executive. His role is to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership. (This might seem hyperbolic, but it is not an exaggeration.) I have met with him on several occasions, and he has been gracious. (I doubt if he is aware of my knowledge.) I have watched the affair intensify over the last year, and I have also benefited from his generosity. He is engaged in work that I am passionate about and is absolutely the right person for the job. I strongly feel that exposing the affair will create a major distraction that would adversely impact the success of an important effort. My issue: Should I acknowledge this affair and finally force closure? Should I suffer in silence for the next year or two for a project I feel must succeed? Should I be “true to my heart” and walk away from the entire miserable situation and put the episode behind me? NAME WITHHELD


The fact that you’re willing to accept your wife’s infidelity for some greater political good is beyond honorable. In fact, it’s so over-the-top honorable that I’m not sure I believe your motives are real. Part of me wonders why you’re even posing this question, particularly in a column that is printed in The New York Times.

Remarkable #12, changes the whole perspective of this and deflates the conspiracy balloon. If the husband knew, everyone knew, did´t take the FBI to uncover this. To me its quite sad, really, that these successful, driven two people have never found love and loyalty. Nothing new, of course, just sad.

No, not led around by her "lady parts". How simplistic men are.

She was driven. An achiever. Petraeus was another achievement. Another trophy.

She was driven to an affair with him because she realized it was possible, that this powerful man could be had.

And when she was finished with him, she dumped him.

It´s interesting that she had a Twitter campaign going against Drudge´s contention that Romney might shoose Petraeus as his running mate.

She is a Democrat.

All of her accomplishments and yet, she has to stoop to the lowest of the low, going with a married man - if you admire the man, if you respect him, how can you actually be a party to destroying him? It seems more like a conquest thing, a notch on her belt.

Some way to celebrate their collective birthdays. They were both born on Nov 9th, 20 years apart. That would be a couple Scorpios attracted to each other´s drive and ambition without thinking of their spouse.

High achiever, huh, with her pants down around her ankles underneath an office desk? This wanton, unscrupulous, careerist named Broad-well, gives whores a bad name. As for Petraeus, a preening careerist type barely intelligent enough to know a good idea when he sees one, but always too pretentious to offer attribution, we should expect this kind of boorish behavior out of him for he has always served the interests of the Boston-Beltway cocktail circuit rather than that of the Constitutional Republic.

Michelle Obama on the Move:
What Will She Do Next?
Parade Magazine, by Maggie Murphy and Lynn Sherr    Original Article

Nearly five years after moving into the White House, Michelle Obama could not look more at home. Posing in the formal Green Room, she appears both relaxed and invigorated, embracing the undefined (and undefinable) roles of Spouse in Chief, Role Model in Chief, and Mom in Chief. But it’s the last one that makes the first lady shine brightest of all. Put her in a room with kids—whether her own or the nation’s—and she glows.

Charlotte is an unlikely home for Paula Broadwell, a counterterrorism expert and world traveler who relished being embedded with combat troops in Afghanistan to research her biography of Gen. David Petraeus. But Broadwell moved here more than three years ago with her husband, Scott, a radiologist, and their two young sons, Landon and Lucien, because it was her husband’s turn to pick. “We made an agreement when we first got married that every other move would be the other person’s,” she told the Observer in an interview earlier this year.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
