Barack Obama Preparing For The Resignation Of Gen. Stanley “Mr. Out Of Pocket Comments” McChrystal

- By Bossip Staff

General Stanley McChrystal might have “yang-yang talked” himself out of a job:

The White House has asked the Pentagon to make a list of possible replacements for Gen. Stanley McChrystal because President Barack Obama wants to be ready if he decides to fire the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. McChrystal is unlikely to survive the fallout from remarks he made about colleagues in a magazine profile to be published Friday, a Pentagon source who has ongoing contacts with the general told CNN earlier. He will likely resign Wednesday, the source said. McChrystal’s fate is expected to hinge on a meeting scheduled Wednesday with President Barack Obama, who was “angry” after reading the general’s remarks in Rolling Stone, according to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

The “magnitude and graveness” of McChrystal’s mistake in conducting the interview for the article were “profound,” Gibbs said. Gates said McChrystal had “made a significant mistake and exercised poor judgment.” McChrystal apologized Tuesday for the profile, in which he and his staff appear to mock top civilian officials, including the vice president. Two defense officials said the general fired a press aide over the article, set to appear in Friday’s edition of Rolling Stone. In the profile, writer Michael Hastings writes that McChrystal and his staff had imagined ways of dismissing Vice President Joe Biden with a one-liner as they prepared for a question-and-answer session in Paris, France, in April. The general had grown tired of questions about Biden since earlier dismissing a counterterrorism strategy the vice president had offered.

“‘Are you asking about Vice President Biden?’ McChrystal says with a laugh. ‘Who’s that?'” “‘Biden?’ suggests a top adviser. ‘Did you say: Bite Me?'”

McChrystal does not directly criticize Obama in the article, but Hastings writes that the general and Obama “failed to connect” from the outset. Sources familiar with the meeting said McChrystal thought Obama looked “uncomfortable and intimidated” by the room full of top military officials, according to the article. McChrystal and his staff “became aware” that the Rolling Stone article would be controversial before it was published, Hastings told CNN Tuesday. He said he “got word from (McChrystal’s) staff … that there was some concern” about possible fallout from the story.

SMH. Michael Hastings, the writer of this Rolling Stone article says McChrystal and his boys were getting slizzard during the interview…Watch the video below where he goes into detail:

    Can any of you explain to me why everyone is up in arms about Obama and his short stay in the White House? As most know I do not comment on American politics because I am not American, but I want to know why he was so loved and now it seems like so many are clamoring to tear the man down.

  • barrack HUSSEIN obama

    Everyone on this thread is dumb and does not know the facts, Obama is going to go down in history as the worst president in US history, look at where we are, BP oil spill, Border chaos, huge huge deficits, war with Afghanistan, top generals speaking out against Obama becuase Obama does not want to win the war, he wants cap and trade, which is just another huge tax to cripple us with, that was the main point of his speech, not how we are going to cap that gusher. Pissing on our allies while bowing at the feet of dictators. Shutting down all oil drilling, do you know what that will do to the economy. Black people get off his nuts because he is black and look at the state of the US. Not one of his policies are working. Please someone tell me what he is doing that is working. This novemeber is gonna be a blood bath for Dems, look at Obama approval rating. Gonna be in the 30’s soon…ooo yea Savior Obama, hope and change….what a joke

  • HF

    Almost 4got…

    The state of Louisiana “overruling” an executive order suspending offshore drilling.

    @ HF

    Its not because he is black its because he is hugely unexperienced and in wayyyyy over his head…if it wasnt for white people voting him in, he would not have been president in the first place…stop blaming it on race….it is a verrry sad excuse.

  • Clarkekent3000

    White Folk’s racism is so strong AND arrogant,that it clouds their judgement and doesn’t allow them to even being able to remain professional in the work place. They can’t help that they can’t submit themselves to being led by anybody other than a white leader!

    The one function of the military is to follow the orders and direction of the COMMANDER IN CHIEF! There has been no ambiguity on why the founders made strict allowances for EXCLUSIVE civilian rule of the military! If what the military wanted ruled the day,then we’d be subject to juntas and coup d’état!

  • HF

    @ wanna-b Obama:

    I don’t know what fantasy island u r living on where racism is no longer an issue, but it’s clearly NOT U.S. territory.

    Is ALL criticism of Obama because of race?


    Is ALL criticism of Obama free of racist sentiment?


    We disagree. Let’s leave it at that.

  • drock

    I’m sure the General said nothing but the truth. So much for freedom of speech.

  • Yo Momma

    Pack this closet F@gs’ sh*t!

  • drenk



    Yeah…McChrystal is done.Too bad this won’t help Obama AT ALL.Just makes him look more INCOMPETENT.

  • Matix B Women in the Hockey Hall of Fame!!

    Is it wrong of me to say that there were many problems in the U.S before Obama and there will be many problems after? I can’t imagine labeling a leader the worst in history when his term isn’t even half way over. Only time will tell I guess.

  • drock

    @ MAtix

    George Bush was an idiot who got two terms….GET OUT OF HERE Tea bagger! I don’t think you want more of me do you?


    @Matix B Women in the Hockey Hall of Fame!!:

    You’re absolutely right.Obama has been inept…but it did’nt help that he walked into the biggest buzzsaw of problems ever seen when he took office.Yes most American voters are gonna scapegoat him for EVERYTHING that’s wrong with the country.Yes the Republican who takes over will be as bad.

  • barrack HUSSEIN obama


    Its unwinnable becuase Obama doesnt want to win, neither does the pansy liberal left. If Obama would give the general the resources he needs to win the war you would not have top generals speaking out against our commander in chief. Think about it, this general is not dumb, he knows speaking out is a death sentence, he knows he will most likely be fired. Do you know how bad it must be over there for him to say speak out and say something. This is calculated, he is making a statement so the American people know whats going on over there. Obama is inexperienced, incompetent and not fit to lead the free world.


    @ dee

    Yeah, he’s got that, “I’m gon’ kill this black sum a bytch” look, don’t he…

  • barrack HUSSEIN obama


    Bush, bush, bush…he is no longer president, that is almost as bad as the because he is black excuse…
