Obama ´may have known about
Petraeus affair BEFORE election´

UK Daily Mail, by Reuters Reporter

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 11/19/2012 6:30:23 AM

The head of the House Intelligence Committee suggested on Sunday that President Barack Obama might have known about former CIA Director David Petraeus´ extra-marital affair before the November election, and said Attorney General Eric Holder should address this question soon before Congress. U.S. Representative Mike Rogers, a Republican, said Holder´s statement that the Justice Department had not informed the president before the election implied that Holder might have told Obama privately.

Pet acknowledge the affair to the FBI way back in September.

Transparency from this administration has a new meaning.

What does he mean MAY have? Of course he knew. What thinking-engaged person doubts this? This is the MO if this administration; it´s like the Clinton administration on steroids.

There´s no way the FBI would rogue itself into spying on Petraeus without Obama knowing about it.For Obama to claim ignorance right after he got re-elected isn´t the least bit believable.

The FBI´s excuse is the general´s behavior hadn´t reached a level to bother the president on it.What exactly triggered the FBI to go very deep into data mining on someone who had a sterling reputation? Oh,right the honorary counsel from Tampa who opened the door for the forensic digging into a threatening e mail.This took some serious hacking most people wouldn´t believe the FBI is capable of.

Did the FBI investigate the death threats on Romney that were on Twitter and those people being easily identifiable?

I just hope when they dig Arafat up,they get a DNA sample and compare it to Chelsea Clinton.

I´m shocked. Shocked!

Pass the popcorn. This weeks episode of "Survivor - Mordor On The Potomac" is on.

Pay no attention to the fact that as this is all happening, nothing is really happening. As time goes by the manchild is distanced from responsibility. The stories change the "truths" increase and the sheeple move on to Black Friday. Four dead guys in a place most Americans can´t find on a map are long forgotten. And obama is still awesome.

This administration is a bunch of corrupt slimy liars from Obama on down. If the GOP had the nads and the Press wasn´t totally corrupt they would have the people screaming for the impeachment of Obama and the firing and indictments of most members of his administration for multiple offenses. These people daily spit on the Constitution.

Obama War Room: Distractions

OBAMA: We need to get this stuff off the front pages. Even Leno´s giving me hell.
DAVID AXELROD: A war between Egypt and Israel would distract everyone, sir.
OBAMA: True. Valerie, your call.
JARRETT: Hillary, tell Huma to get a message to the Brotherhood: provoke a serious but non-nuclear response. Truce in five days. We´ll make up their losses.
HILLARY: Yes, Ma´am.
OBAMA: Sweeten it. Throw in a nuclear-tipped cruise missile preprogrammed for Tel Aviv. We need a counterweight to Israel other than that moonbat Ahmadinejad anyway.
JAY CARNEY: We´ll get hammered for losing Egypt, sir.
OBAMA: We won´t. I´ll fly there with Chris Christie when hostilities cease and survey the damage. Does FEMA have international capabilities?
AXELROD: It doesn´t even have local capabilities, sir. Uh, why would Christie agree to go?
OBAMA: I´ll ask Springsteen to do a live benefit for the Egyptian military while we´re there. Christie´ll host. Jeez, I hope he doesn´t bear hug Bruce.
JOE BIDEN: Hey, Chief. You still hot to make Susie Rice SecState? The Repugs are saying´ she´s either a dupe or a liar. They´ll filibuster her.
JARRETT: We´ll say, she´s not a dupe, she was out of the loop; she´s not a liar, she was singing with the choir. And Jay, set up a meet with Sharpton, Jackson, the CBC, the Times editorial board, E. J. Dionne, and Maddow. They´ll push the racist meme.
BIDEN: Nice thinkin´, Val. McCain, Graham, they been all over her like, uh, like white on Rice.
OBAMA: Joe, you´re leaving tomorrow to attend Queen Elizabeth´s funeral.
BIDEN: She´s not dead yet, Chief.
OBAMA: I want you to be on hand, just in case.

This whole business of Obama not knowing his director of the CIA was having an affair works because we are surrounded by the willfully ignorant who believe anything the boy king and his minions tell them. A lie only works if it is believed and this country is full of true believers who understand that critical thinking is only for chumps. They much prefer being spoon fed Obama propaganda.

We all know that Obama knew. But you know what? The media knew too.

How many members of Pravda in DC/NY got leaks about this before the election, and didn´t investigate or publish? My anger goes to every single one of the lying traitors who belong to the axis of evil known as the DC Press Corps.

Legal Insurrection website, iirc, suggests Obie and Val knew of the affair before Patreus moved to CIA and thus came with a handy coercive factor.

Of course "he" knwew. He and holder held the information because they had a political motive...

My neighbor voted for obama because he´s German and he was afraid the republicans would start a war. To late -- tell the Israelis about betrayal....

WE didn´t vote as "one country" -- WE voted for our own personal reasons -- and obama knew that....

Re #3 - I read in today´s Washington Examiner that the reason the FBI pursued the threatening emails (when they normally would not) was because there was mention in them of Petraeus´ and Allen´s travel schedule. That is what supposedly forced the FBI to investigate.

I bet everybody in Washington knew about the affair 24 hours after it began, just as everyone in Washington knew the Plame dame worked for the CIA, long before she was used to mousetrap the Bush administration.

The affair (whether it had begun yet or not) was probably the talk of Afghanistan and Iraq from the moment the two were seen lunching together in the Officers´ Mess.

Don´t forget ....in August ,before Romney picked Ryan, Obama was telling his big fundraisers that he heard Petraeus would be the VP pick.
Drudge picked up on this.
Obama may have been trying to start the Petraeus as Veep wave , which would have guaranteed the perfect October surprise.

If the FBI Director knew, the Attorney General knew, and if the Attorney General knew the President knew. Those Obama appointees would not put their positions at risk by keeping the President in the dark.

Once the Attorney General knew, you can bet that he passed along the information to the President in a private conversation of which there is no evidence and that will never be publicly revealed by the parties involved. There is nothing revolutionary about that happening.

President Obama does not care what the Republicans think, or say, about the matter. As Obama knows that he has been re-elected, and that there are enough people in the country who believe that the standard for him should be that "he is doing the best that he can" no matter what he says or does, and will always believe him no matter the circumstances, after all they just reelected him.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say?

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

"Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not
