… POTUS has to Hate This [#books]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 14th,2016

.. especially books by former Secretaries of Defense …

.. now , it is Leon Panetta , and his book is about to come out …. at the worst possible time …

.. right before the midterm elections …

.. normally , foreign policy does not end up as an issue in midterm elections . Well , that is far , far different this year . Immigration . Illegal Immigration . Infectious Disease , specifically Ebola . Syria , Iraq , ISIL , Israel . etc…..

.. Panetta , s revelations are grist for the mill . Unlike Gates [a Republican] , Panetta is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrap . He had to know that the timing of the book and the PR campaign were going to be horrible for his party …

.. as pissed as his he is as His lordship , I am not sure that he cares right now . He wants to make sure that the message gets through loud and crlear , and in a timely mannter , instead of dilly-dallying around the point , politics be damned ….

… POTUS , Now You Know You have a Problem …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 18th,2013

.. when two former secretaries of Defence haul off and blast you for your “red line ” actions and your strategy in Syria .

.. Gates ‘ commentary I can understand . Robert Gates was a holdover from George W. Bush ‘ s administration , and I strongly suspect , is a closet conservative Republican . One of his best quotes was when dealing with the fallout from the takedown of Osama bin Laden . He was asked by then National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon on what to do about all of the problems with the leaks about national security – related information .

.. Gates ‘ simple solution — “Shut the [f-bomb] up.” Simple and to the point .

.. Now , Leon Panetta , that is something . Panetta is no Republican . He was a long – time Congresscritter , and a Chairman of the House Budget Committee . He was also a former White House Chief of Staff [under Wilhelm der Fibmeister] , and was also C.I.A. director under Obama . So , he is no conservative at all . Yet he blasted POTUS as well . Nice .

.. That will certainly get people ‘ s attention . It certainly got mine ….
