I figure that the 'award' is well-deserved.I figure when Time can't think of anybody else deserving they often throw up a stock photo of the current president. Seriously, the only two other people that I can think of that could be in the running this year would be either Bashar al-Assad or Malala Yousafzai. BTW, I was serious about the afro, if Obama would throw one out there, I'd let mine fly too, as an act of solidarity. . .

I'm glad your happy, and you are free to sovel as much crow down my throat as you see fit. I'm not really sure what this means though as the following have also been Person of the Year: Adolph Hitler, Mark Zuckerberg, Vladimir Putin, Joseph Stalin, George Bush (43), Newt Gingrich, Ronald Reagan and Ayatollah Khomeini to name but a few. The HuffPoo just published an article complaining (or perhaps observing) that Time has not named a woman as Person of the Year for over 26 years...War on Women?

There are more "good people" than that, but you miss my point or don't want to SEE it. Being person of the year does not always signify a good thing (FYI Stalin got it twice too). I'm not saying that Obama is bad because of the company he keeps on the cover of Time, but rather that it is not as much an honor as a recognition. It is more about who is the most "newsworthy" person without regard for their good or bad. As such most presidents have been on the list as well as other major world leaders.


You may be a little too predictable as well. I have graciously accepted you gloating in this and the last thread of yours. It's a shame you cannot be a more gracious winner. None the less he won, and you are free to gloat all you want - I'll not deny you that so please do enjoy yourself. :)

That's correct many including me hoped that Romney would get elected (in fact 46% of all participating voters) and that he would then be able to block Obamacare - I was wrong and you were right - congratulations. But what does Gun Control have to do with Person of the Year? Jimmy Carter was Person of the Year, but that didn't help him at all in implementing any legislation. If anything helps to bring more gun control it will be from the Connecticut shootings - without that, I do not think that President Obama would even have thought to initiate gun control legislation let alone obtain its passage.

Lastly, as I recall Joe you are "an old whit man" what does that have to do with Person of the Year?

Permit me to amend my statement.

Yes, it is true... the Time 'Person of the Year' thing is for the most noteworthy person in the news, and doesn't signify any sort of award for virtue or achievement.

Having said that, I still think it was appropriate. Obama, despite being four year old 'news', is every bit as newsworthy and noteworthy as the cover implies.

(Ask me about him, 20 years from now. I'd actually lay money down that Obama will be treated by history as one of the great Presidents.. considering the challenges of his era)

A small but important distinction, it is "Newsworthy", not "Noteworthy"

I agree that age is not an impediment to being a good President, but is a very exhausting and demanding job, and I think most wise people leave it for someone younger when they start to get into their 60's because they have a finite number of years left and want to "enjoy life". Hillary is a pretty driven woman and has had her eyes on the White House since the day she left it. But some of what I have been hearing (I can't divulge the source or the exact content) is that she is pretty much on the fence on this issue. Don't get me wrong, she has already locked up support from President Obama and other key Democrats if she chooses to run but she is not sure she wants to do it. She is keeping her options open.

I have to say that Barack Obama, and Michelle Obama, are two of the classiest people to inhabit the Whitehouse in my lifetime. I think JFK and Jackie were iconic, but I think the Obama's are far more in touch with the average American, and that's the reason the President got two terms in the face of huge challenges.

I think this Presidency will be a defining one for the next 40 or so years. It is absolutely refreshing to have an American President who says what he means, and means what he says, and believes in his goals. All religion and party politics aside, this guy is a good person.

I do a fairly brisk buisness in 22 oz bone in ribeyes at the bar, and make most of my tips off the food I serve. Just saying once again you don't know me you don't know what I do or what I'm about. But nice speculation from a forum member with a keg as an avitar ;)

22oz Ribeye? Wow.

Even after you remove the profit inducing bone, that's a lot of steak.

That was an election... not a Church of Obama crusade, he is my Prez. but, I have no interest in worshiping him, and I haven't lost a thing, it would be the same o,same o if Romney was elected, ..well it might be a nickle difference.

Dont worship him. Respect him, admire him, support most of his positions, worship him no ;) that's a Rush / Hanity, right wing nut job slogan painted on anyone who supports the president.

But Romney didn't win bwaaaaa ha ha. :)

Depends if he can "stave" off criticism or come "barreling" through. May he be the "butt" of many jokes. I have to say it looks like very familiar "hoop'la.

OK, so Mr Obama won.

However, rather than see him sit on his hands, many look forward to seeing him actually accomplish something(s) worthwhile in this term.

Or is it to be 'He is my president and he can do no wrong in my eyes' ?

If you can afford to enjoy one of my $14 martinis before you sit down to a nice dinner your less likely to find legal trouble. I cut off liberally. Next asinine question please. [/COLOR];)

Which side of your mouth are you talking with? Do you serve food and an accompanying drink? Or do you serve drinks "before they sit down to a nice dinner"? Seems to me that what you do changes based on the point you are trying to make.

I have to say that Barack Obama, and Michelle Obama, are two of the classiest people to inhabit the Whitehouse in my lifetime. I think JFK and Jackie were iconic, but I think the Obama's are far more in touch with the average American, and that's the reason the President got two terms in the face of huge challenges.

I think this Presidency will be a defining one for the next 40 or so years. It is absolutely refreshing to have an American President who says what he means, and means what he says, and believes in his goals. All religion and party politics aside, this guy is a good person.

I will second that. I wish we has a PM that was half as classy.

Are you sure you wish to stand by that statement?

The PM currently has a 'vote of no-confidence' motion tabled in Parliament against him.

He is looking for a way to avoid it being heard.

Many here have very negative views of the gentleman particularly in his in not acting in the best interests of the country.

You have no idea what you're talking about at my bar I serve BOTH food and drink GASP imagine that. What don't you understand? My best customers come in have a drink, say hey Joe what's the specials tonight? I explained as I set him up with a placemat silverware, napkin. I alert the busboy to bring bed and water. Other customers come in either waiting for a table at the bar or just having a cocktail. So many different scenarios going on at the same bar at the same time.

I don't give a rat's back side about what your bar/restaurant does. I just want you to not say two contradictory statements. In one you brag about serving $14 martini's but liberally refusing to serve too many and in the next you are talking about how you make most of your money from serving food. You seem to change what you say to suit your needs. You are doing the same thing now by trying to turn this into a discussion about me not understanding how drinks can be served in a restaurant. I know exactly how restaurants with bars work just as much as I know that you don't want to eat your words here and will do anything to avoid it. Try being sincere and honest for a little while instead of the argumentative curmudgeon that you are turning into.

You do know that you can disagree without being disagreeable? Right?

Ok let me try to explain this S l o w l y

I serve $14 martinies I get a tip
I serve a $10 glass of wine, a $50 ribeye, a $7 desert and a $3 espresso at the bar I get a tip
I have many stools at the bar I enjoy a good a varied clientele

I recommend the Woodford Reserve neat with a splash of water to open it up. The Jim Beam double black is also a great little misbegotten bourbon worthy of a try. With the ribeye try a glass of our BV cab, or if your adventurousness I recommend a hearty little Hahn merititage.

If you serve 14 martinis to a guy and the guy has a serious accident, you'd have more than a tip... More than likely a free ride to jail and a pissed off bar owner who may have just lost his liquor lic.

"Complementary."


Remind me of this one:



A man walks into a bar, sits down, and orders a drink.

The bartender gives him his drink, accompanied by a bowl of peanuts.

To his surprise, a voice comes from the peanut bowl."You look great tonight!" it said. "You really look fantastic - and that aftershave is just wonderful!"


The man is obviously a little confused, but tries to ignore it.

Realizing he has no cigarettes, he wanders over to the cigarette machine.

After inserting his money, another voice emits from the machine."Who let you in here? Did you check the mirror before you left the house? Get away from me, you great oaf!"



By now, the man is extremely perplexed.


He turns to the bartender for an explanation.


"Ah yes sir," the bartender responds.

"The peanuts are complimentary, but the cigarette machine is out of order."
