On McChrystal

I agree with Glenn Beck, et. al.  You don't do that.  If you're going to publicly criticize the Commander in Chief, you resign first, then criticize.

The only justification for it is if something is direly wrong -- so wrong you're willing to point it out -- and willing to suffer the consequences.

I suppose that could be the case here.

Am I the only one who thinks Chairman Zero needs to tread carefully here? He is, after all, the one who put the good general where he is. He fired Bush's point-man and put this fellow in charge of A'stan, and now he is frustrated with his handpicked subordinate for DARING to say something which bruises his tender ego?

According to rumor, FDR's son once found the president playing chess or doing something-or-other idle activity in the White House, in the middle of World War II. He asked his father, "Dad, shouldn't you be giving orders to the generals in Europe and the Pacific?"

FDR replied, "Son, I've given every order I know how to give. Now it's up to the generals and their men, to win this war."

Would that Obama thought along similar lines.
