How has America slipped beneath waves?

I read with amusement Mr. Grens' letter, "America we knew slips beneath waves."

I was wondering what alternate reality there exits where a Republican falls on his sword for a Democratic administration?

General Petraeus resigned because he, in his opinion, had failed his office. He tendered his resignation, he was not fired. He did not offer to resign when the 11 embassies were attacked with 53 killed and 90, injured during the reign of George the Lesser. Perhaps Mr. Grens could explain why. While he is at it he might explain just which "America we once knew slips beneath the waves" he is referring to.
