Makes us very happy that our families, friends and co-workers all voted "NO" on the anti-marriage amendment. Looks like another heterosexual marriage down the tubes, and even threatening national security.

@legalcomment - the illogical nature of that statement is tough for me to digest. Where did you come up with the idea that the existence of adultery is somehow connected to the argument that government should incentivize couples who procreate to raise their children under one roof? Try staying on topic and explaining to me why Petraeus resigned AFTER the election even though it is clear this information was known well in advance of the election.

Marines can rest easy tonight knowing your on the right track. Your commanding officer has exchanged a trillion e-mail on major current events with Jill Kelley.

It's not political. It's men and women behaving badly. In this case, rather gender stereotypically - which I find particularly annoying.

Not even Vince Flynn could make up stuff like this.

What bothers me is what CNN points out this morning... If the emails of the Director of the CIA are not safe, what does that say about our own?

"Obama's administration had been on the defensive for weeks because of a terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead." On the defensive from who? Certainly not from the despicable news media!! With the exception of Fox News, they showed absolutely no interest in the Benghazi story until it became a part of a sex scandal!!

Considering he didn't know about Fast & Furious or the investigation in to Petreaus when Obama said "he's seen no evidence that national security was damaged by the revelations" is that supposed to reassurring to the general public? I mean really, why would he expect him to see anything of importance?

I wonder if the saying "hell hath no fury as the woman scorned" plays into this fiasco??? written in 1697, holds true for today?

"The fast-moving scandal broke just days after President Barack Obama was elected to a second term in office." This isn't fast moving. This was known last summer and it impossible that the President would not have been informed of this. The real news here that the media should be looking into is not the sex scandle, but why did the President sit on this information.
