obamas to honor tucson hero

What a lovely gesture to make for this brave, young man!

Daniel Hernandez Jr., an intern for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, will sit next to Michelle Obama at tomorrow's State of the Union, which happens to be on his birthday.

The young man showed SUCH bravery when he rushed to Congresswoman Gifford's aid during the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona two weeks ago.

Here's what he had to say about his opportunity to attend the State of the Union on his birthday:

"I'm both honored and excited to have the opportunity to travel to our nation's Capitol for a once in a lifetime event. Also the chance to bring my father along for his first trip to Washington, D.C. The State of the Union is a pivotal moment because it is our opportunity to find where we are and where we will be going as a nation in this upcoming year."

We hope it's a wonderful trip, Daniel! You deserve it!

…And Happy Birthday in advance!

    Poor guy, must not be a decent movie playing back in Tuscon, feel for him having to sit next to that phony, then again they will not let a oppurtunity go to waste in making themselves look good

    Does she need another assistant? 23 isn't enough.

    sounds like Daniel Hernandez is so excited. his father must be very proud. Daniel and his father should also make sure to bring sunglasses to shield their eyes from John Boehner's neon orange face. thats if Boner actually makes it to the State of the Union. he might be too busy crying or having a cocktail party or maybe playing golf. hopefully someone will remember to put a muzzle on that disrespectful piece of shit Joe Wilson. what an idiot.

    Another PR move for the 2012 election. Can't wait to see the snaps that will be quickly released to the press.
