GENERAL HONORE QUOTES
Sep 20, 2005 | me

Posted on 09/20/2005 7:03:14 PM PDT by blogblogginaway

I thought it would be a neat idea to dedicate a thread to quotes from General Honore. This guy is so cool he just cracks me up big time and I think he deserves to have a thread dedicated to his 'tell it like it is' verbiage. Please add to the list!

I'll start with today's "Honore" quote..........

Don't get stuck on stupid!


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: generalhonore; honore; quotes

I liked it when the reporter the other day was asking about buse. I cant remember what he said exactly so I wont attempt to slaughter his words but it was priceless.

I say Rice-Honore 2008

Does anyone have a bio on General Honore? Is he a ring knocker?

Aside from from "over," that's about it for Honore quotes, isn't it?

If he were only a Senator.

He's from Lousiana.

I have a feeling the hereditary Landrieu/Mafia seat may be vacant sooner, rather than later.

General Honore might be the perfect candidate to replace "her corruptness."

If he runs as a Republican it will be a revolution.

If he runs as a Democrat it could be a revelation.

This general was truly a breath of fresh air. That said, I seriously doubt he'd want anything to do with the political weasels that inhabit our hallowed halls of government. He's got way too much class to go along in order to get along.

Please God, NO! Make him a radio or TV talk show host, or a contributing editor at National Review, but NOT a senator! Our Senate will have this guy corrupted within 10 minutes.

No positive, but I think its when I link directly to a video thats hosted on a different site. Its bad form because it uses up that sites bandwitdth. Better to go to the site and download the video instead.

Right guys? Sorta?

No way is such a straight shooting guy a ring knocker. VMI or Citadel, maybe, but not West Point.

My husband was under a different command chain in Korea, but he was stationed at the same base where Honore was the commander. I won't pass along where they butted heads, but I do have some stories... ;-). Suffice it to say, though, that the better half figures he's a VERY good man for the job he's doing in New Orleans and not just because of not having to work with him himself. His "colorful sayings" were particularly "colorful" in Korea.

I do believe he's of French lineage but was born in Louisiana.

We've got a plan, but don't confuse the plan with execution. We're doing something that is very different. Nobody goes around with 50 tones of water.

His interview Tuesday on CNN was hilarious. When the General told that CNN reporter that he was "stuck on stupid" I was rolling on the floor. Someone needs to
post the transcript if it isn't already posted somewhere.
Hopefully, the replay will be on Rush on Wednesday.
