  •  DO NOT ACCEPT HIS RESIGNATION (reposted from (1+ / 0-)

    I've not asked a lot, President Obama.  I've generally deferred to your superior judgment and knowledge on most issues.

    But in this case, I have to put my foot down.  FIRE HIM!

    When he resigns, with a smirk on his face, thinking he's won, say "I'm sorry, I cannot accept your resignation."

    let him sweat for a minute.  Explain how important you think the security of Afghanistan is.  Let him think you're weak and letting him off the hook.  Let him think that he can say and do whatever he likes and have you wrapped around his finger.

    And then fire the moron.  And give him no explanation.  Walk right into the press room and explain exactly how this scumbag undermined our troops, our mission, our security as a nation, and why you couldn't let him quit.  He had to be fired in disgrace, and every American needed to know why.

      a talking head for POX NEWS?  As soon as this dude is out of the military, he'll start rolling in the bucks for any winger that will pay him to trash talk the president.  Why would Obama create an enemy just to show "he's boss?"
