BRIAN'S OPENING THOUGHTS
You see it on reality shows, so it must be true! Brian cannot believe that General Petraeus has resigned over an extramarital affair, and more so, that a story has supplanted the reelection of President Obama. Plus: Is Governor Cuomo really going to get a pass in the way he handled Hurricane Sandy? Brian weighs in.
"The whole thing is a shock," said anchor of Special Report Bret Baier, who had known former CIA Director General Petraeus for years prior to his position at the CIA. Baier weighed in on the extramarital affair that shocked the country, and told Brian that he expects a lot more information to come out in the following days, and that this story will be much bigger than it already is.
"There was more to this than sex," said NY Post Columnist Michael Goodwin, regarding General Petraeus' extramarital affair. Goodwin said that the fact that there were classified documents in Broadwell's e-mail warrants an investigation from the FBI. "The question is who gave her classified documents?"
Author of "Argo: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled off the Most Audacious Rescue in History" Tony Mendez spoke to Brian. Mendez told Brian how he liked Ben Affleck's movie Argo, and how he kept cool in such a high-pressure undercover operation.
"I believe that President Obama is more concerned about going down in history - his legacy as a hero to the left - rather than a hero to all Americans. I think that's why we're in for a rough four years," said FOX Business Network's Charles Payne. Payne weighed in on Obama's proposed tax hikes for "people like him," and how it is going to affect Americans.
