President Obama is the most vindictive, thin-skinned president we have ever had. Does anyone want to take a bet that then-CIA chief David H. Petraeus‘ sex-scandal downfall is punishment for him not falling in line completely with the much-revised Benghazi talking points of the White House? Around Sept. 20, Mr. Petraeus disputed the revised version of the talking points. On Nov. 7, the story of his affair came out.

In my world, one plus one still equals two. And in this case, that No. 2 equals Mr. Petraeus‘ punishment.
