Former Secretary of State Alexander Haig has passed away at the age of 85.


Alexander Haig, Rest in Peace

The Haig family says he died Saturday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore from complications associated with an infection. He was 85.

Haig’s long and decorated military service launched the Washington career for which he became better known. But he never lived down his televised response to the 1981 assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.

It had just been earlier reported that former Secretary of State Alexander Haig was  admitted to a hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Reports state that that Haig is critically ill in the hospital with an undisclosed illness.

The four-star general served as a top adviser to three presidents. Haig ran unsuccessfully for president in 1988.

      Good Riddance!!!
      SM: Nice, karma is a biotch. So what did he do to you. What evil. We see how the LEFT reacts to a person who just disagreed to another. He did not kill any one or hide a crime of a missing person.

      You need to see no further than the previous post where we wished US Senator Frank Lautenberg a speedy recovery even though we disagree with 100% of his politics.

      At the time and now I think the mis-speek only a silly mistake. Further I feel silly mistakes are put in our lives the same as bonuses or tradgedy. All make the deeper cuts in our shaping.

      But if a natural born leader and one posses that trait as a pattern, the lead is to loss.

      Numerous things make Haig’s life and the human special. For me, a standout is in 67 when he landed his chopper in Hell and took charge — in person. Origination of my own ID, in which my Col flew in a chopper above tossing out grenades and firing his very own rifle…he, him, the man…important man to the most seriouus patrols! I could never forget looking up and seeing him in the door gritting his teeth. As a solder I/we concerned if our last thing we do is both brave and just, life in general many of us do as well this same thinking. Oh well. Haig had himself quite a life. Happy trails and this guys admiration to him.

      Alexander Haig was a wonderful man and a great American leader. He was the true definition of “public servant.”

      The hate difference between conservatives and liberals never ceases to fascinate me.

      There is a disconnect between some liberals and decency. Those some in question, like the one here, seem to think saying things like “Good Riddance” is okay. They obviously don’t realize that they partially represent liberal America. Is it any wonder why liberals are often looked down on? A few individuals ruin it with their pure hatred/lack of decency. I have many decent liberal friends who despise these hateful liberals. Thankfully, the intelligent and nice liberal thinkers know that America will go no where good when people spew forth such pathetic comments.

      Alexander Haig was an excellent commander, dedicated, loyal military leader, and a brilliant man :-) Rest in peace, General Haig
