Fair point about the blackmail. That would indeed be potentially problematic.

ANd it is rumored that the affair was with Paula Broadwell who wrote a book about him.

Here is an interview she gave on The Daily Show. She too was married.

I'd like to see that. It would be much better than burdening the rest of the American population with their disgusting views, and surely it would be in their best interests, to not have to put up with Democrats and moderate Republicans contaminating their Utopia.

Some of my conservative friends on FB are already certain it's all part of the Benghazi "cover-up" and that he was forced out. Unbelievable.

I saw that being discussed on a TV at a restaurant my mom and I stopped at on the way home this evening.

Everything's a conspiracy nowadays, apparently.

I only ask for two rules; 1. They aren't allowed any military grade weapons(for they would start wars with everyone). 2. The whole thing has to be televised. It would be the most entertaining TV to exist, but probably a pretty short lived series.
The images you're giving me!

and i'm thinking of the movie jim carey was in-his life being unkwonst to him- televized!


omg! DEF Rule #1

Laughter helps deflect the horribleness of it all-when it's inflicted on people who don't want those types of governance, or a uber-corporatized/uber-monitized society. And the literal victims of racsist, anti-LGBT, mysoginistic acts of violence/murder etc :shudders:

yeah AND the difference usually is that Republicans are talking about being godly folks, and often castigating others for their monogaminous failings while hiding their own affairs whether straight or gay.

It's the bigtime hypocrisy of it!

To be fair...with the timing of the announcement coming right after the election and right before the Benghazi hearings...

If the shoe was on the other foot, democrats would be accusing the republican president of the same thing.

i'll go with the crazy

there are too many elements that are lined up, you might call it coincidence
or you could also say the Obama Administration use special secret weather technology to amp up Sandy to slow Romney's momentum and help Obama

this thing is so silly, it is probably true


Quote:
MY WIFE’S LOVER

My wife is having an affair with a government executive. His role is to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership. (This might seem hyperbolic, but it is not an exaggeration.) I have met with him on several occasions, and he has been gracious. (I doubt if he is aware of my knowledge.) I have watched the affair intensify over the last year, and I have also benefited from his generosity. He is engaged in work that I am passionate about and is absolutely the right person for the job. I strongly feel that exposing the affair will create a major distraction that would adversely impact the success of an important effort. My issue: Should I acknowledge this affair and finally force closure? Should I suffer in silence for the next year or two for a project I feel must succeed? Should I be “true to my heart” and walk away from the entire miserable situation and put the episode behind me? NAME WITHHELD

Don’t expose the affair in any high-profile way. It would be different if this man’s project was promoting some (contextually hypocritical) family-values platform, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. The only motive for exposing the relationship would be to humiliate him and your wife, and that’s never a good reason for doing anything. This is between you and your spouse. You should tell her you want to separate, just as you would if she were sleeping with the mailman. The idea of “suffering in silence” for the good of the project is illogical. How would the quiet divorce of this man’s mistress hurt an international leadership initiative? He’d probably be relieved.

The fact that you’re willing to accept your wife’s infidelity for some greater political good is beyond honorable. In fact, it’s so over-the-top honorable that I’m not sure I believe your motives are real. Part of me wonders why you’re even posing this question, particularly in a column that is printed in The New York Times.

Your dilemma is intriguing, but I don’t see how it’s ambiguous. Your wife is having an affair with a person you happen to respect. Why would that last detail change the way you respond to her cheating? Do you admire this man so much that you haven’t asked your wife why she keeps having sex with him? I halfway suspect you’re writing this letter because you want specific people to read this column and deduce who is involved and what’s really going on behind closed doors (without actually addressing the conflict in person). That’s not ethical, either.
