Even MORE Un-blankety-blank-believable...

Fak-chekin...

....a herd of Democratic bloggers are criticizing General Petraeus for allegedly having a partisan meeting for Republicans. One blogger even suggests General Petraeus should be “relieved of his command”. The general theme…
I think it is inappropriate for the commanding general in Iraq to meet privately with the Republican caucus to plot a legislative strategy…
Sounds pretty serious. The RS Insider checked with sources on the Hill and in the Defense Department and discovered there are only two problems with the story.

1) General Petraeus did give a Congressional briefing last month – a “video-conference at the Pentagon” – and it was open to Republicans and Democrats.

2) Democrats chose not to attend.

So General Petraeus gave a briefing to the Republican caucus….because Democrats couldn’t be bothered to show up...

And these useless people actually have the gall to claim that they deserve national office.
