Do you believe the explanation given (an affair) for the sudden resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, or do you think there's more to the story? (UQ)

You are not better than a truther. If this was a Republican and Democrats where doing what you were you would be calling for their heads

Best bet is to ignore him. He'll think he's won and you won't have to watch him spew Chris Matthews talking points.

The guy only sees what he wants and hurls personal insults and claims he is "to smart" for us (note the spelling error in claiming intellectual superiority). If you ask me I think he's a tad insecure.

really liked Herman Cain, and volunteered for Ken Blackwell in his bid for governor of Ohio (All black guys) or that I never said the affair was part of the ALLEGED cover up.

It's ok goalie: he doesn't even read posts in their entirety because if he did he would have known I don't like Hannity or Beck (to be honest I do like O'Reilly), years ago I supported Allen Keys in his bid for president...

Progressive, I am surprised sun has put up with you as long as he/she did. Your arrogant assumptions and thuggish demeanor compounded with your severe superiority complex make me laugh. There is more to this story than we are being told, and I don't need to watch Fox News to see that. Grow up ...

Hmmm, what? Sorry, I was having a riveting conversation with my shoe. Ah, yes. If you want to continue slinging personal attacks that get us nowhere, have fun doing it on your own as I will not be participating in the mud slinging. The only one getting dirty this far is yourself.

You are showing with every comment you make that you have poor intelligence and believe what ever Fox News tells you.

Also who cares if Petraeus is testifying? I thought that was part of of the cover up? He resigned do he didn't have to testify.

Oh you conservatives grasping at straws

Also you are the one making the comparison when you say this is some grand conspiracy and cover up but say the government can't do anything right. Pick one or the other. You can't have both.

There was no Benghazi scandal. There was an attack. An attack that the attackers said was because of the video. There was no cover up. No conspiracy. Nothing but an act of terror. Which the President called an act of terror right after the attacks. Also if this was some grand masterful cover up why

PS- the "get over it" remark is so original and must have taken some time to think up in response to all that was said before. If that's all I'm going to get from you, this conversation has officially lost all appeal for me to continue. I get more from a shoe lol

Should we really leave the investigating up to the people who could be complicit in the cover up i.e. the White House?

All that being said, whether or not Patraeus was involved in the cover up or not I do believe something isn't right. Cover up or incompetence, it isn't good.

Despite your policy/cover up comparison, it really isn't all that hard for a politician to lie. It plain and simply needs to be investigated by as relatively bipartisan group as possible.

Who cares if Patraeus is testifying? We may or may not find anything out from him. Whether or not the affair is connected to the alleged cover up remains to be seen. All I have ever said is that the timing of all this coming out during the Benghazi scandal is suspicious. Nothing more.

Get over it sun. This was just an affair. Look at the time line. This is not some grand conspiracy. You conservatives 'the government can't do anything right' yet they are some how capable of some big conspiracy and cover up. You can't have it both ways.

Actually I don't like watching Hannity. He stretches to find things wrong with Obama which is just plain not constructive and overly partisan. I just love it how people on here assume all day long they know who they are dealing with.

Oh you're just a dumb Sean Hannity worshipping moron who prefers to believe in lame conspiracy theories than truth. If this was some massive cover up why didn't Cantor go to the press in October? You are a pathetic fool

not just in the Patraeus scandal, but in general with regards to Benghazi. The loyalty is not only positively blinding but very dangerous. You have obviously went through a lot of trouble typing all this out and if not responded to tonight I will do so hopefully tomorrow. Goodnight for now...
