During the debate, Carly Fiorina tried to prove she can be as tough as the bully boys. She said that, as president, she would "bring back the warrior class" -- specifically, five generals who she said were fired by Mr. Obama when they told him things he did not want to hear. The only thing she actually proved was that she has an inclination to exaggerate the facts. One of the generals she named, David Petraeus, was not fired by Mr. Obama; he was appointed director of the CIA, a job he had to give up in disgrace when it was revealed he had been sharing classified information with his mistress. A second one, Gen. John Keane, retired six years before Mr. Obama took office. A third, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, ran into trouble when he and his staff openly criticized the administration in a Rolling Stone interview.
