It wasn’t all that long ago when someone with left leaning tendencies would spit out the word “Halliburton” at any mention of President George W. Bush. It became an epithet. HALLIBURTON! That was it, all conversation regarding politics was supposed to come to a halt at the utterance of the word – for some strange reason it was the left’s creepy trump card.
Fast forward to 2010. The One is in office. Mr. HopeandChange. So, what has Captain Kool Aid done about Halliburton? Why, he’s given them a no-bid contract, of course.
From what I have read the number of Halliburton employees have increased in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
