Jake Tapper tweeted a statement earlier from Vice Admiral Harward about why he is refusing the job of National Security Advisor.
“I spent 40 years as a Naval Officer where I was deployed and in combat for the bulk of my life. Since retiring I have the opportunity to address financial and family issues that would have been challenging in this position. Like all service members understand, and live, this job requires 24 hours a day, 7 days a week focus and commitment to do it right. I currently could not make that commitment. My thoughts and Prayers are with those that carry such heavy burdens and responsibility for taking care of our country’s national security concerns. God bless this great country of ours.”
Well, that’s a very diplomatic way of saying the job is a sh*t sandwich.
