David Petraeus: Time Lord!

Ron Futrell is con­fused there seems to be two dif­fer­ent reac­tions by the same peo­ple to David Petraeus and has con­cluded there must be more than one:

Is this the same Gen­eral Petraeus? I know that name from some­where and I’m pretty sure it’s spelled the same.

Futrell goes on to list the dif­fer­ences between the two Petraeus’ and his confusion.

The answer seems to me quite sim­ple. Petraeus is a time Lord.

His abil­ity to turn spend so much time deal­ing with indi­vid­ual tribes obvi­ously comes from being able to use his TARDIS to go back in time to learn all these cus­toms and travel back and forth to have the time to get to all of these places.

As for the atti­tude change, that’s easy; he has obvi­ously recently regen­er­ated and like the Doctor’s daugh­ter Jenny had one of those rare regen­er­a­tions where his phys­i­cal appear­ance doesn’t change.

The first sign of said regen­er­a­tion was the col­lapse. He must have been at the begin­ning of his regen­er­a­tion cycle

This would also explain the dif­fer­ent take of the media, they with­out a ques­tion didn’t care for the 1st ver­sion of Petraeus but since regen­er­a­tion changes per­son­al­ity then of course they are look­ing at him in a dif­fer­ent light.

Now it sim­ply remains to be seen if this new regen­er­a­tion of David Petraeus is just as effec­tive a sol­dier as the pre­vi­ous one.

Ron Futrell is confused there seems to be two different reactions by the same people to David Petraeus and has concluded there must be more than one:

Is this the same General Petraeus? I know that name from somewhere and I’m pretty sure it’s spelled the same.

Futrell goes on to list the differences between the two Petraeus’ and his confusion.

The answer seems to me quite simple. Petraeus is a time Lord.

His ability to turn spend so much time dealing with individual tribes obviously comes from being able to use his TARDIS to go back in time to learn all these customs and travel back and forth to have the time to get to all of these places.

As for the attitude change, that’s easy; he has obviously recently regenerated and like the Doctor’s daughter Jenny had one of those rare regenerations where his physical appearance doesn’t change.

The first sign of said regeneration was the collapse. He must have been at the beginning of his regeneration cycle

This would also explain the different take of the media, they without a question didn’t care for the 1st version of Petraeus but since regeneration changes personality then of course they are looking at him in a different light.

Now it simply remains to be seen if this new regeneration of David Petraeus is just as effective a soldier as the previous one.
