During the Bush years, the mere mention of Halliburton evoked a rabid response from liberals who claimed the company dragged the U.S. into the Iraq War for profit. (Vice President Cheney was a former chairman of Halliburton.)
March 29, 2015: President Barack Obama teed off today at the private Floridian National Golf Club with a member of the board of directors of Halliburton.
A Google search of “Obama Halliburton golf” within the past twenty-four hours showed no returns from liberal sites.
Cornell University has yet another reason to blush with shame. Among the know-nothings railing over Indiana’s RFRA is alumnus Keith Olbermann who called it “legally codified hatred and stupidity.”
Uh, no. It is merely the 20th state version of a long-standing federal statute.
“The free exercise of religion has been called the first freedom, that which originally sparked the development of the full range of the Bill of Rights. Our Founders cared a lot about religion. And one of the reasons they worked so hard to get the first amendment into the Bill of Rights at the head of the class is that they well understood what could happen to this country, how both religion and Government could be perverted if there were not some space created and some protection provided. They knew that religion helps to give our people the character without which a democracy cannot survive. They knew that there needed to be a space of freedom between Government and people of faith that otherwise Government might usurp.”
– President Bill Clinton, 1993
Following the announcement that the Army will be prosecuting Bergdahl for going AWOL, tweeters asked Brazile if she was going to apologize now. Her ONLY response:
“Go find your joy.”
Huh? I’ll tell you what would give me joy, Donna. Having you and all your racist buddies stop demanding that Barack Obama be judged solely by the color of his skin.
Here are a few other choice remarks various tweeters had for and about Donna:
- Have you ever admitted you were wrong about anything?
- If they admitted failures, they would have scant time for snarking.
- Hope ACA covers chiropractic. Carrying Obama’s water has to be rough on the back.
Meanwhile, BizarrØland’s State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, told Megyn Kelly they were totes standing behind the exchange because … wait for it …
“We have a commitment to our men and women serving in our military, defending our national security every day, that we’re going to do everything to bring them home if we can and that’s what we did in this case.”
Unless, they’re locked up in a Mexican prison for no good reason, in which case, Barack’s got no pen or phone.
Grab a tissue! This was a super happy day for Rowan, but if you don’t shed a tear or two reading his mom’s blog, then you need to check your pulse.
“Yesterday, I got to be a part of something awesome. We enlisted an 8 year old boy, suffering from a rare and life-threatening disorder, into the Texas Army National Guard. His nurse, is one of our guardsmen, and found out that being a Soldier was his dream. I was blessed to be a part of the group of people who planned the day and put all of the pieces together. This little boy was incredible and touched the hearts of everyone he met that day. His family were the most wonderful people. It is hard to describe in words what it meant to be a part of the whole thing. But it was amazing – the coolest and best thing I have done in my 9 years in the Army. My husband and son drove down to Austin to be a part of the day, and I got to help escort the family around for the day.” – Captain Martha C. Nigrelle

“It was so humbling and truly appreciated. Brian and I commented how apparent it was that none of these men were doing this for themselves, or for any gain other than blessing Rowan. You could tell they were thankful and grateful for the opportunity to do this for us. I overheard multiple soldiers and officers telling SGT Hixson “thank you for bringing Rowan to our attention”, and telling their Superiors “thank you for putting this together”, or” thank you for letting us be a part of this”. They were all truly happy to be there. I have never been so proud to be an American in my life. It was just beyond perfect.” – Rowan’s mom
