“Nice guy, good speaker, big smile; loves the trappings that go with being President, but the smile and the speeches without any genuine substance portend a great deal of trouble not only internationally, but domestically. His leadership has been abysmal . He's like the guy you hired with all the personality attributes and then you found out he was all sizzle and no steak. So you fired him, but Obama is in for the full ride.”

“You are too kind... Almost half saw his sizzle as fizzle.”

“"good speaker"? more like a good reader. without the teleprompter it is all errr,uuumm, aaa, and jibberish”
“My caddie at Carnoustie, Scotland told me that the largest tip he ever received in his 37 years of caddying there, was from Michael Jordan. In US dollars, a whopping $8,000. No cheapskate there.”

“Thats cool. I can only go off of a cousin of mine who is a waitress at Rosebuds that said him and his 5 person entourage left $80.00 on a $700.00+ tab. Albeit a decent tip if it is for one person, at the higher end joints like this they split it 4 ways that night. This is just one example. The rest, as stated in response to lj and in original post, is not fact but hearsay.”
“Really? Cheats? Sergio had plenty of time to halt what he was PREPARING to do and he elected not to. The replays, seen from every angle including overhead drones make that perfectly clear. Tiger actually stopped his swing, mid-swing later in the tournament because of some disrupting activity. Why and how could he do that? Because he is the best golfer who ever lived. Sergio is not.”
“I thought it was a great Masters. I had Cabrera on Wednesday to win and, though he didn't win he aquited himself beautifully. Scott, always a great player, deserved to break-through and win.
Tiger is still the best player golf has ever seen, but being a Buckeye, I will always be a Jack fan too.”
“Tiger withdraws, tv ratings plummet, the rest of the field plays in anonimity. Golf is a money game. Should he have withdrawn? Possibly. Did the rules committee blow it? Probably. Does it make any difference in the real world? Nope.”
“Tiger. Best golfer all time. Jack. Great golfer, better person.”

“How do you know Jack is a better person. Just because you never heard of Jack messing around with women during his playing days. That doesn't allow you to come up with the conclusion that he is a better person. Remember, the era that Jack played in there was no internet and reporters were not all in it for themselves like they are today. Jack and Arnie could do anything short of killing someone and it would not have been reported. Today, these reporters are all looking for that next big scoop that will get them their 15mins of fame. We've all heard the rumors about Jack and the boys back in the day. With some women in Fl. I ain't saying, i'm just saying, you know what i'm saying.”
“"Good Lord", by those standards we don't need a SecDef. Policies are one thing, how they are implemented is another. It would seem that the president, who doesn't know a "corps man" from a "sharpnel" wound, would be well served by someone with a little more gravitas. He is attempting to fill the shoes of Panetta and Gates with tiny feet.”
“Pornographic? Native dress and women's bodies are not pornographic. I can't define pornography, but I know it when I see it- and I don't see it.”

“I said trending toward. Personally, I can define pornography - and I think it has as much to do with motive as it does images. Regardless - the motive, here, is largely to selling magazines. They're just using woman to do it.”
“I think it is pretty obvious that Hagel will be nothing more than a mouthpiece for the president. His thoughts aren't very original and his appearance at confirmation hearings was dismal. He appeared to be in over his head. The SecDef needs to demonstrate leadership and a moderate grasp of the issues and he seemed to lack both. He'll get confirmed, but he better sharpen up or the JCOS will have little respect and eat him for lunch. He's probably a good guy, but good guys are a dime a dozen and he needs to be more than just a token Republican in a Democratic adminstration.”
Lou Jack on Feb 16, 2013 at 21:55:16
“Your grasp - it's reasonable...
Don't see Mr. Hagel as going to be mouth piece.
Pres. Obama requires more of all - re governance.
Yes! SecDef. needs extra grasp of issues....
Measure his "wider" perspective in conjunction with a more natural sophist approach - doesn't need to be academic - he has Sound judgement..
Will RISE to occasion. while doing daily homework
Tokenism shall dissolve -
He faced bedeviling GOP personalities.
Their questions must be measured for:
- the intent of those asking
- the real value or nuisance factor
- the utility - if his response will later haunt Administration or else.
- If GOP question might be contingent on another follow-up..etc
Mr. Hagel conserved well - despite devious GOP points to rattle composure.
Talking too much is no Darn virtue -
HE WOULD DO WELL.
(Have yet to watch what was shown in media)”

“It will be his job to go by the Presidents Policies!!! The President is the commander In Chief --good lord.. you people are out of it!”
“Robertaruth asked me "who am I to question the president and the majority in the senate". Gosh Robert, I'm just an American citizen who would dare to question. Politicians are not known for infallibility.”
Marine3340 on Feb 16, 2013 at 10:58:37
“Well put sir!! It seems that those who tend to EXALT Obama & other politicians have forgotten that the politicians, the President included, are THE SERVANTS OF THE PEOPLE, not the other way around. And when the politicians betray their constituency, they should be voted out!! Ol' Robertaruth is apparently clueless about what that relationship is meant to be.”

“Had we gotten that sentimental inquiry when Mr. Bush was leading the U.S. into the Iraqi war - weeks prior - the deficit would have been closer to what Pres. Clinton left.”
“Tom 95134, you must truly be a little sick. To politicize the suspension of mail delivery in a way that obscures the fact that 2 or 3 feet of snow, 50, 60 and even higher winds makes most travel almost impossible. You need to get out in the fresh air more, maybe you should have driven up here to New England last night and checked it out; weather was great for a tough guy like you.”
sailka on Feb 10, 2013 at 10:28:36
“Any Travel except Emergencies was forbidden, arrestable in 3 feet snow. Some died in their cars.”
“Two or three feet of heavy, wind-driven snow is pretty much a good reason to suspend mail delivery for a day. I'll bet most would agree. To politicize the discussion is frivolous and most of these comments are written from the comfort of their homes or the warmth of their mental wards.”

“It is political. Budgets are established by politicians and they are so afraid of losing their jobs that they are willing to cut budgets and reduce basic services (like keeping roads clear).”
