Media Lizzy on Henry Hager
Here's what Lizzy Blackney of Media Lizzy says about Henry Hager (above, left), whom she knows personally:
"The first time I met Henry Hager in the summer of 2000, he was escorting his father John, then the Lt. Governor of Virginia. John Hager, formerly an Assistant Secretary of Education - and current Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, was - and remains - confined to a wheelchair. I was assisting them in navigating the convention venues, from parking to just getting in and out of buildings through the proper security keyhole, during the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia. Henry's youth was an asset, his strength of mind, body, and spirit was an asset. I was pretty horrified that no one had thought to make proper arrangements for Lt. Gov. Hager and his family but Henry assured me we could handle anything that came. He was a very young man at the time but was a consummate professional, and loving son. I helped fix things for them but it was Henry, whose poise after a life of making things work for the family, who I admire from Philly. The entire Hager family was and remains an inspiration to me. Forget politics, they are just good people - who take care of each other. So when the folks at Operation Yellow Elephant challenge him to be a man, I'll tell you what: Henry Hager already is, has been for a long time. Jenna Bush is one very lucky young lady." -Lizzy Blackney.
Operation Yellow Elephant agrees with Media Lizzy that Henry Hager is a fine person, etc., and certainly wishes him and his fiancee Jenna Bush (above, right) a wonderful and happy life together.
However, we continue to believe that as a young man eligible to serve, and a future national leader, whose support of President Bush can be presumed, Henry Hager has a responsibility to set a good example for the rest of us at least by considering volunteering for military service.
We've Asked The Question of Mr. Hager on multiple occasions, including via Media Lizzy, and have yet to receive any response.
If Henry Hager really is a Man, couldn't he at least explain to the American people whether he has considered volunteering for military service, which his future father-in-law has described as an "honorable calling," and to share with America the results of his deliberations?
