No Sex Please, We're Americans

So this is why James Bond is British! With “Skyfall” breaking box-office records, I always wondered why James Bond was British and not American. Now I know!

Americans can’t handle the sexy nature of a secret agent! How I come to this conclusion? One name; David Petraeus.

The CIA Director has to step down because he was caught having an affair with a woman while married for 37 years to his wife. The former general did the honorable thing and resigned from the CIA, ending his distinguished career. I read the story on the news and can’t believe it. The man was the director of the CIA and Americans has a problem with him having an affair? For real? I would thought secret agents having affairs comes with the territory.

In all seriousness, what’s more important to Americans? His job performance or his “moral leadership”? What’s all this talk on CNN about moral leadership in the first place? Petraeus is the director of a spy agency. By definition of the job, he don’t have moral leadership. He can’t; it’ll get in the way of the job!

Getting an intelligence agent to resign due to an affair is not just stupid, it’s borderline insane! Why? Because spies can’t have moral leadership!

Interesting blog post.

It's a big problem in America. Everyone has their own brand of morality and the politicians want to force it down everyone's throat.

Speaking of throats. Look at Bill Clinton. They almost impeached him because he got a blow job in the Oval Office.

Actually, because he lied about it, but still. That's just awesome!

I can understand why people were pissed at Clinton as he was the U.S President but director of the CIA? That's a different thing altogether.

So depending on your ranking in the government, your sexual freedom is different?

One guy has a lengthy affair and he's a four star general who is also director of the CIA and it's okay.

Another guy happens to be a President with the good fortune of getting a blow job or two by an intern in the Oval Office and it's not okay?

And I thought Americans were strange!

Hey I'm from Asia. For us, a president having an affair (or a BJ) is hardly new. Frankly to me, it's a non-issue, but I can understand why Americans were pissed at Clinton. He was an elected official. The director of the CIA is not. That is a big difference.
