You've got to wonder if the pre- and post- advertising video are a total accident, or if it was targeted sponsorship. Pretty cool nevertheless...

General Honore'is my kind of guy!!! No B.S.!!! Just positive action. And....unlike the whimp Republicans who would not dare take the Democrat scum traitors to task, he says what is on his mind. No political correctness there. Man, how refreshing!!!

I'd like to see Tim Russert have the guts to put him on MTP next week, so Honore can give him an overdue kick in the head. Then, Blitzer.

Did you see Rabid Russert go after Chertoff yesterday? Chertoff has been impressive with his handling of these morons. It was funny at the end of this press conference that this thread is about Honore ended the conference abruptly and walked off - and Chertoff (who was grinning thru it all) said (paraphrasing) 'I'm going with him' and followed him off. Classic.

Thanks for the link.

I watched the video. He put the reporters (and I use the term loosely) in their place. In a few words, he said this negative reporting should be "tapped." He asked one person if her experience matched the questions she was asking. It was great.

He said what the majority of the citizens in this country would like to say to this Fifth Column, called The Press.

Is this the same General that Geraldo was kissing ass to last night, saying how we needed him on Wednesday. Geraldo looked like a fool with all his praise as he simulatneously blasted FEMA, only to have the General remind Geraldo that even if he was there on Monday, he would've been victim of the circumstances as the rest were.

This video is fun to watch, but it's not the General's dynamite press conference which came later in the day, which was a joint press conference with Chertoff and Honore. I'm convinced now, CNN is not going to post the transcript of that, I've been checking all afternoon!

I got the best explanation of what CNN is doing in the way it's covering the hurricane. "Playing to their audience". That must surely be it. CNN might have figured out the majority of viewers will never come back to CNN, they're watching FOX, so why not concentrate on their base, the far left fringed few, and foreigners who groove on CNN International. CNN's biased coverage of this hurricane can't be explained any other way I can think of.

I just fired off a LONG email to him; just got done this second.

The last line was, "If your staff can find out the facts, you should do one of two things: keep quiet or email me back and I'll send you the links."

I've about had enough.

Wolfie was incredible a short time ago, when the Army Corps of Engineers finished plugging the breach in the levee at 17th St. and turned on the spigot to begin draining ... he asked his "expert" if it was possible they'd actually planned that. Pretty pathetic, really.

All the General does (figuratively) is take the steel rebar from his spine and cracks 'em(msm mice) over the head. The look on their faces is priceless.... like shell shocked.

Great line. Wish I used it when blasting Blitzer for accusing the President of ordering flags flown at half mast for Rehnquist but not for the hurricane victims. If he's take his nose out of the dem talking points and look out the window, he'd see that order was issued on Sunday.

Be advised, on the lower link to cnn, their webpage also has a poll regarding John Roberts as Rehnquists's replacement for Chief Justice.

Right now it's:

66% No
34% Yes

Might want to change those numbers some.

Fired? You're much to kind. I would have them arrested and charged with Depraved Indifference with Reckless Endangerment and 1,000 counts of Reckless Homicide and Dereliction of Sworn Duty with Intent to Commit Mayhem.

God as my witness, both Blanco and Nagin would be getting the needle in Federal Detention by the time I was through with them.

yes, live press conference today, with Chertoff and Honore both at the podium taking questions. But I can't find the transcript on CNN. Brit just showed a clip of it, Honore at his best.

That's Leftist Newspeak right there. Righteous indignation at pure Leftist bullcrap is "rage."

If we don't put a stop to this soon, things are going to degrade to the point that every time someone dares to speak the truth, it's going to be criminalized as "hate speech."

I sent him a similar e-mail:

Today, you were totally off base. Do you really think that FEMA should operate on the expectation that half the local police force will walk off the job in a disaster? And that others will exploit the disaster and join the looters?

What federal official do you think Bush should have fired if on 9/11 half of the NYPD walked off the job, and others were taped looting the scene?

I do not fault FEMA, or *any* federal agency, for the disgusting and disastrous performance of the New Orleans Police Department.

If the New Orleans Police Department was not such an abominable disgrace and had an effective police presence at the designated shelters (Superdome and later Convention Center), many of the problems would not have existed.

(By the way, you might be interested in knowing that many of the deaths were of sick people who were respirator dependent, and died when the electricity and generators failed. Which federal official should be fired for that??????)

Get your facts straight. You usually do, but you disappointed today!

Russert had on that Parish PRESIDENT, Broussard, and consoled him as he cried, agreeing it was all the fault of MISTER Bush. It turned me off MTP forever.

This is great .

Did you see the good General at the very end give a salute and said I'll see you later while the other guy (was the Chertoff?--the picture was fuzzy) was still talking?

This is a no BS guy! I don't think I have ever seen a government/military official walk off to go back to work while a Cabinet level person ( or any officail) is still talking at the podium. Ever!

This is priceless.

It is a damn shame we do not have more officials who are no BS people. President Bush should take a few notes about how to respond to "Helen Thomas Style" questions from General Honore.

The really funny thing was when the other guy at the podium broke off what he was saying and said, "we're going to follow the general," and left. BWAHAHAHAH! I loved that!
