Another 1970s question (am in a nostalgic mood). In the mid seventies, German chancellor Brandt had to resign because he failed to recognize a close aide as a spy. If Obama had a foreign spy as an aide and it came out, do you think he'd resign?

Obama already has lots of friends & close relationships with people & countries that despise the USA that he has sworn to protect.
Will the voters ever learn?

How can he possibly be at fault? He only found out after seeing it on the news.

No, and I honestly don't think that's a good reason to resign unless there was a reason that he should've known.

Does a CEO resign if one of his employees sells intellectual property to the competition?

I didn't think so.

I actually have a new take in hindsight: Brandt himself was leader of the Socialist International movement. I can't prove but strongly suggest he tolerated the spy since he sympathized with the commies.

From the question, I was wondering if it could have been something like that. Politicians usually resign only to avoid an investigation or prosecution.

Yea, on one would prosecute Obummer for fear of being called "racist", just sick. . . .

If there is a spy in this administration, it would probably be an Israeli spy. Most people in this country would be upset if we prosecuted an Israeli spy.

Really? I would still have thought it's a Russian spy.

I'm not an Obama fan but he is still the POTUS. If a close aide was discovered to be a spy, I firmly believe that Obama would fire the aide and direct the Justice Dept to prosecute.

Probably not. He'd find someone to blame ;)
