    Default Press "Stuck on Stupid."

    Has anyone seen this video of a news conference in New Orleans Tuesday?

    One of those great moments where a reporter gets smacked down for asking a stupid question. By a Lt. Gen. in the U.S. Army. Classic.

    This guy makes me laugh.

    He was the same one who conducted an entire TV interview saying "Over" after every comment.

    At least this guy made his position quite clear. I think he made some good points and refused to be distracted away from what he way trying to say. Obviously that reporter didn't get what he was trying to say the first time around.

    The reporter knew exactly what he was trying to say. The reporter was trying to get him to say what the reporter wanted him to say,

    Do you think we can get Gen. Honore to head up the Senate Confirmation Hearings for the next Supreme Court Judge. I watched some of the Hearings with Judge John Roberts and some of those Senators we "Stuck on Stupid" with some of there questions.
    A "Good" fire is not measured by how big it is, but by the fact that everyone is going home safe, and that we possibly learned something new about firefighting. Member:IACOJ

    I would love to see a guy like that in Congress. Can you imagine the fun we could have?

    I agree with the assessment of the Confirmation. How many times do you have to ask a friggin' question to understand the answer is the same?

    What does one expect from career hacks, excuse me - politicians.

    "You... are stuck on stupid"

    Oh man, I'm crackign up over here. The best part is when he is talking to some hippy, liberal reporter trying to bring up some past events and goes ", Hooah?" at the end of his statement.

    General Honore needs to stay in the Army and not go chasing political dreams.We need more officers like him and less like this one JO in the Navy I suffered under who wouldn't question anything he was told and never made a decision until he had heard what the Chief wanted to do first.
