Petraeus scandal? Do you really think it is important to know that a general was sleeping and talking to someone who was a member of the military (Army reservist) over whom he was not in command and who had official security clearance to work closely with him because she was his official biographer and on a government fellowship ( which btw requires a security clearance)?So how come the Patreus scandal didn't break until two days AFTER the election? Hmmm.
And when is the intelligence committee going to start investigating Benghazi? Hmmm.
BFD with all double entendres intended .
But you do have a point that it makes a very nice deflection from 1) the fiscal cliff and 2) Benghazi (which I also think is a not as big an issue as you conspiracy theorists would like. Libya was a dangerous place with unreliable informants and poor communication- did you expect it was Cabrini Green?)
Ah, but what ELSE is Obama hiding?
