Mary Robinsons medal of freedom?

Barack Obama’s decision to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Mary Robinson has generated unexpected but emotionally charged opposition. Appointed by then-U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan as high commissioner for human rights in 1997-2002, Ms. Robinson had a controversial but ineffective tenure. (Previously, she was president of Ireland, a ceremonial position.)

  • Srsly. I'm a conservative and I'm wondering what the connection is to anything of importance. With all the BIG things going on, I don't see how this is a big deal. You have to choose your battles, and I choose to battle over the big stuff.

  • It's an issue and there is no rule to what you can talk about. Persoanlly I'm tired of hearing Libs boo hoo about the American people schooling Obama on healthcare. We can talk about other things. It's as relavent as sore boobies and toddler tantrums on other lists.
    Obama picks were clearly political.
