10/12/10 | MplsSteve

Posted on 10/12/2010 8:28:16 PM PDT by MplsSteve

I was just watching my local news here inn Minneapolis-St Paul.

They broke in to show live footage of the first Chilean miner being brought to the surface.

This is good news!

32 more miners to bring to the surface. Fingers crossed, everyone!

It’s amazing to think of the transition these guys are going to have to go through to get back into their lives.

Something as trivial to us as the Sun will be an issue for them. Good thing they waited until after dark to bring them out. I noticed the guy was still wearing sunglasses.

I would say we will trade ours for theirs but I wouldn’t do that to the Chilean people. Obama would be vacationing while this was going on.

survivor and prayed for all to be rescued!

He seems like a great guy. Was there since day 1!! The smile on his face when the first miner was brought up was amazing to see. Chile is very lucky to have a President that cares so much about his people.

That thug isn’t MY president....and you’re right!

He’s probably on another vacation and hasn’t a clue what’s
going on in the world.

He just gave a long speech after the first miner came up and he was so full of emotion and DID NOT have to use a teleprompter!!!

Sorry, but that is all liberal, you need help, psychobabble. They are not spoiled, weak American kids. They are hardy men living in tough conditions since birth. They will be fine in 48 hours.

The second guy they sent down is their equivalent of Navy SEALs, I believe they even train with the SEALs. He's a tactical diver/medic with 10 years of experience. He'll probably be the last person out, which has got to be nerve wracking.

This ia a major miracle, God and modern science work together, but God will take the back seat except in the heart of the miners and family and friends.

The second guy who came up reached in his bag and threw presents to all the rescuers and put his fist in the air hugging everyone in sight! Wow! This is really great and uplifting to watch.

Chile is looking like a good candidate for a place to bail from Obamunism. Zero should have taken a lesson in crisis management from the Chileans — under promise and over deliver is a recipe for a happy populace.

Chileans are doing a great job! Producing results beyond the possible, refusing to fail. They are acting... like America, the way we used to be. Instead of how Obama is remaking us. This is their Apollo 13. May it end as well. And may it remind us from how deep a hole we have to climb to regain our birthright and that such a climb is possible.

Meanwhile I'm disgusted at Fox's coverage. They sound desperate for something to fail. They keep replaying the whiniest psychobabble liberal shrinks can produce and the most implausible PC medical scenarios. The trapped miners haven't seen the sun in 2 months so must be sick from vitamin D deficiency! Do they think Chile was too stupid to include vitamins with all the food and water sent the past month? And if they were lacking in any vitamin I'd be far more concerned about C. They could all have contagious diseases... not unless someone was already contagious the day of the collapse! It's hot and humid down there... much like the Amazon PC paradise. Pathetic and insulting to the brave miners.

These men were doing physically hard work, so must have been fit to start. Groups of healthy people have survived much worse in the past, if they had strong leadership. Think of Shackleton and Endurance. And, it must be remembered, that rescue finished with the help of the Chilean Navy!

Their navy must be truly awesome. Solid engineers to help with the rescue capsule design and special forces paramedics with the stones to go down into that cave. Just damn.
