Petraeus On Hewitt

I hear that Hugh Hewitt will have a very special guest on today's show: General David Petraeus. Hugh's show starts at 6 pm ET/3 pm PT. While Hugh is always must-catch radio, be sure to clear your schedule for tonight.

While you're at it, make sure to catch Rush right now. I'm certain that he will have some clear and concise words for the cigar-tax idiocy that the Democrats tried to quietly push through Congress. King Banaian notes that this looks very similar to the luxury tax that Democrats forced onto the Bush 41 administration, and reviews the fallout.

the luxury tax sank the big boat industry (pun intended) and put out of work hundreds of people. It was a didactic in the failure of taxation.

Now, they're coming for cigars.

Anything that destroys the cigar business in America, will destroy the cigar business on planet Earth. It's not just mom'n'pop cigar stores that are going to be filing for unemployment. It's also the thousands of working poor all over the world that are going to be out of work.

Democrats... from Satan, for Satan.

I hope he doesn't go on the Hewitt show, which is blatantly partisan. Petraeus does not need to appear in partisan venues or further politicize an already over-politicized issue. A very bad call on his part.

Great interview. The General is a thoughtful, sober man.

It was striking how he described what has been learned by the brass and the troops over these last few years.

He describes the re-tooling, re-learning, re-arming, re-strategizing and the adaptation/ expansion of technological resources to deal with the complex cultural and military situation at hand.

With all the hype about our military "breaking" (mostly political inspried bunk IMHO) nobody mentions how much of a seasoned, smarter military we now have.

This interview is worth a listen.
