Distraction: McChrystal v. Obama!

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)

General Stanley McChrystal and his aides made some controversial comments about the President. First of all, if Obama is such a loser and the general feels that he isn't been given the opportunity to do his job, he should have just quit. I'm sick of watching grown men bicker like they're on the set of "Golden Girls." It's not helpful to have a general speaking about the Obama is a disrespectful manner, but I'm not worried about this. I think it's just another mainstream media distraction. Here's a more relevant story: Jobless claims rise 12,000 to 472,000 while 350,000 people lost their unemployment benefits. Did they find a new job? Not likely, given the current unemployment situation.


  1. Reginald, this is exactly why I regularly visit your web site.

    You see through the B.S. My wife read this headline to me yesterday from Drudge and my immediate and typically cynical response was "it's a distraction."

    I agree that regardless of what the General thinks of the President, he needs to keep his mouth shut about it in public, or just quit. The President is the boss. As a military man McChrystal is well aware of this. The President is right about accepting his resignation, counter to what Keith Olberman suggested.

    Back to the real issue, which is not the McChrystal issue... The whole system is falling apart and this is the crap hitting the mainstream newswires for days at a time.

    Thank goodness for Joran Van Der Sloot or they may have actually had to give us real news a couple weeks back.

    The President is under serious fire about the BP spill and the economy, so he and his administration will do whatever it takes to wag the dog right now.

    To be perfectly honest, I would not be surprised to see a strike on Iran in coming months for this very reason.

    It's an election year after all!


  2. Obama has a new general, but maintains the same policy.

  3. First off he didn't insult obama. 2nd off Obamas an asshole who couldn't let it slide. 3rd off McCrystal is a good general in the middle of a surge in afghanistan. Plain and simple Obama was wrong and and an asshole for doing it and this is not a minor story. Its a national disgrace what he did.
