We are not stuck on Stupid!(Lt Gen Honore')
cnn ^ | 09 Sep 05 | Not listed

Posted on 09/10/2005 5:49:15 PM PDT by SkyPilot

I must say, that if there is a hero in all this mess, it is the 1st Army Commander----cigar chomping and cussing----LTG Honore'

His press conference this week was a lesson learned of how officials (who have a spine) should deal with the media.

Sorry--my comments and the CNN post got screwed up. There is some FR block that goes nuts when you try to post from CNN or another media that sued us.

General Honore Rocks

However he is a General, not a politician.
He has been very good at ensuring folks dont take what he says politicaly

Honore's a great source for the sigfile--his quote-to-noise ratio's better than one-to-one.

Contrast this guy to the paper generals like Clark and Powell.

I love this guy! The first time I saw him, he was being pestered by a news harpy. She was half his size and yappin' around his heels, thrusting the microphone in his face time and again, whining, "It's been five days! Where have you been? It's been FIVE DAYS, where have you been?"

You could tell he wanted to belt her one, LOL! He kept saying to her, "We're here NOW! We're here NOW!"

It was perfect. :)

I love people like this guy. But Powell was a pretty good general himself too. Clark--probably not.

The sad thing is there are lots of heroes and we are not hearing about them because of the other stories.

You don't rescue 180,000 people without the first responders putting themselves at risk.

BO'R would probably PAY for a well-timed 'spanking'

Over the phone fer sure, he probably does his own 'spanking'

Honore said he wants his troops' profile in New Orleans to be that of humanitarian relief operations, leaving the law enforcement role to the local police.

He can say that because he's from Louisiana, and the people know, and he knows they know, that that can change instantly and without regret if they give his troops any shit.

Powell was a political animal. He made his career in the halls of Washington. As a General, he never lead any combat operation on the ground. He has been a politician his entire career.

Not very many do anymore. Powell never did seem comfortable being SOS. He hasn't run for political office.

I was told by other military that 3-star Honore' hit the ground cussin' when he saw the situation on the ground.

Our Military are the very perfect pick to pull into that situation. They're trained for yrs and yrs and yrs. If they make it to the general rank, they're usual type A personalities...and smart...unbelievable smart.

Honore' was such a smart pick.

Notice W didn't have problems in the states of Mississippi or Alabama...both states had LEADERS...blanco is an absolute disgrace and should be in her kitchen cookin'... she proven she's nothing more than a housewife. And what I understand Nagin should be in jail...he's such a crook. And has proven, he doesn't have a clue how to run a city and take proper care of N.O.'s citizens.

Nice to see a REAL man again isn't it? Cigars, cussing and getting the job done. Do NOT get in his way he'll mow you down and rightly so. Let the man do his job the way MEN DO!

Don't insult housewives. Most of them can lead - she has proven she can't.

Yes Blanco is a disgrace. Frankly, with her indecisive qualities I seriously doubt if she could cook.

Please do not denigrate the many housewives in this country. Many run a home, work full time, care for their youngsters and still manage to Freep--they are all better organized and decisive than the Governette.

Hey,

A real man.

A manly man,the kind that get us women all giddy and dreamy.

I've been watching him on the news and think he's tough.

He can handle the snippy little women and more.

Show more of him on the news, it'll improve the (ummm) lives of a lot of other people out there.

Kinda like Dick Cheney -- I think he's hot.
