    What is Obama saying to us when he arrives late for speeches?






    He's going to have to be on time for tomorrow's speech because he's up against the game, but in general. Why does he jerk us around the way he does and make us wait on him? It's very disrespectful to the people who are waiting to listen to him.








    One more thing ... how long is this speech going to be tomorrow night? With each minute over 15 even some of his most stalwart fans are going to start getting antsy about missing the football festivities. I'll probably listen to him. I like keeping a live count of how many times he says "I, me, my" ... and how many times he turns from asking for bipartisan efforts and then insults Republicans without even taking a breath in between .... Plus I'm not that much into football but a whole lot of those blue collar people he's counting on are going to be impatient.

    I means he had trouble finding a place to hide from Moochelle while he smoked a few cigarettes.

    He shouldn't show up at all.

    Works for me.

    The emperor's time is always more valuable than that of anyone else.
    It didn't start with this one, and it will not end with him either.

    It is his way of showing off his republican credentials. After all, punctuality is the courtesy of kings.

    He is saying the same thing anyone says when they show up late for an engagement.

    "I don't respect you or your time. I am more important than you are."

    Showing us what he's not.
    The organic chemistry professor was a true German, short, blond curly hair with a face scrubbed so meticulously it shone.
    The class met three days a week at 2:00 PM. He would arrive at precisely three minutes to two, walk to the lab bench in the center of the auditorium, open his suit coat, remove the small binder from his vest pocket, open the binder, lay the binder on the bench, study it momentarily, close the binder, put it back into his pocket, face the auditorium briefly then start his lecture, speaking without stopping for the next fifty minutes. If you accidently dropped your pen, you lost the lecture.
