Gen. Petraeus To Be Sentenced To Two Years Probation and Fine 94

An anonymous reader writes: Petraeus, a now-retired U.S. Army General, has already agreed to plead guilty to a criminal misdemeanor charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material. As part of the agreement with prosecutors filed in March, the government will not seek any prison time. Instead, Petraeus will agree to pay a $40,000 fine and receive two years of probation, according to court documents. The recommendations are not binding on the federal judge who will preside at the hearing Thursday afternoon in Charlotte.

Rep Broun is hardly a valid example and I doubt anyone outside of his Georgia district has even heard of him. You can only really count him if we can state the democrats are clearly racist and use local democrats as examples.

Both sources you mentioned Rubio have a clear biased. You don't even have to read past the headline to figure that out.

But even taking it as truth, Rubio did not say the earth was created 6 thousand years ago. He was talking about the length of the actual creation event.

"Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to answer that,” Rubio told GQ in an interview. “It’s one of the great mysteries.” "

I know you prefer people that just give lip service to Christianity (Obama), but to discount people based on their belief in God is just as ridiculous as discounting people for their lack of belief.

"Full responsibility" is one of those terms that sound tough and makes you feel like they are holding themselves accountable. Most people will be impressed at how he had the courage to tell the truth and to take full responsibility that they will never question what that actually means.

And when someone tries to question it, you'll see tons of diversionary tactics from his defenders (usually, "well Bush did it too" - like they have so much respect for Bush that since he did it, it is OK for Obama to.)
