May 22, 2012

U.S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent a message of goodwill to the island for Bermuda Day, saying “On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to all Bermudians as you celebrate Bermuda Day this May 24.

“The United States and Bermuda share a long history of partnership built on mutual interest and respect, rooted in the history of our people-to-people ties dating back over four hundred years.

“This is a time to reflect on Bermuda’s rich history and promising future.

“As you celebrate your national day with family, friends, and loved ones, know that the United States stands with you as a committed partner joined by our common bonds of friendship and family.

“I wish all Bermudians a safe and happy holiday and continued peace and prosperity in the coming year,” concluded Mrs Clinton.

  3. Puzzled says:

    Shup up WOB. I am tired of these non-analytical comments intended to start a debate between idiots. If Bernews decided to scratch the comments section I would not miss any of you.

    You have a problem with something? Write your elected official or a civil servant.

    Mucking Fuppets

      @ Puzzled

      Rotate on it!

      • Where do I "BUY BDA" says:

        Who screens these comments and allows this immaturity to continue. A five year old would know what is meant by Mucking Fuppets. Get it together Bernews. Bet I get blocked.

  4. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Right Hillary. Ready to take the Uighurs back now!?

    • Tommy Chong says:

      Someone would probably rather this is done after Obama’s clemency day not before.

  5. Kathy says:

    This is called “saving face” after the Uighurs incident. I don’t ever remember in the “long history” of our relationship ever being wished well by the US to have a wonderful Bermuda Day!

    Guess there are more Uighurs moving in!

    • Tommy Chong says:

      America bombs whoever they want & you think they are worried about saving face? They’re probably just getting cosy with their next unincorporated organized territories.

  6. Seawords says:

    Is Barack on the case or what!?

  7. United says:

    I think Hillary and Obama are still looking at the confiscatory tactics of taking the monies from American companies that set up base in Bermuda.

    • Tommy Chong says:

      No need to look at the confiscatory tactics with the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty already signed. They will find anything they want to now & investors will start running.

  8. I'm Amazed says:

    On behalf of Bermudians who still have the hospitality qualities that we have long been known for, I say “Thank you” to Mrs. Clinton and President Obama. We graciously accept your well wishes.

  9. SpecialGIrl4You says:

  10. Mountbatten says:

    Thanks Hilary . I understand talks are going on about bringing the Bases back . Make haste , cause Bermuda could use a little help right now .

    • Tommy Chong says:


      Why the heck would America spend money on another base here?

  11. bda for life says:
