Today the President attended an Armed Forces farewell tribute in honor of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Richard B. Myers and Armed Forces Hail in honor of Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Peter Pace at Fort Myer in Va. General Richard B. Myers retired today after 40 years of service to our Nation. After the ceremony the President and First Lady headed for Camp David for the weekend. The President is expected to announce his choice to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on Monday or Tuesday
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Over the past four years, I've also come to know General Myers' character and decency and his easy sense of humor. He's a kind and humble man who believes in serving a cause greater than himself. It says something that for all the medals on his chest and the stars on his shoulder, one of his proudest accomplishments came last summer when he was named National Father of the Year. The General's qualities have long been known to those he works with. One of Dick's former bosses described him this way: "He's a level-headed guy, he doesn't panic, he eats pressure for breakfast, and he doesn't have a personal agenda." General Tommy Franks called him a "solid anchor in the building." A former colleague said he knew Dick Myers was down to earth when he saw the four-star general standing in line at the Pentagon cafeteria. Those who served alongside General Myers admired the dignity and purpose he brought to the job, and they'll always be proud to know one of America's best Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff."

It really says something about us on this site who believe the stuff that the MSM feeds us. Looks like we would be smarter than that.
