Saban gets a little crabby with Shrub

    Guy who has really important stuff to do, wants to have dinner with sports stars.

    Guy who has less important stuff to do says he needs to concentrate at the job at hand.

    Re: Saban tells Bush to stick it

    Little harsh on the hed, but an interesting perspective.

    Guy who has really important stuff to do should quit indulging his childhood dream and get to work.
  4. Yes, George, don't eat anything from now until the world is perfect, OK?

    Saban can do what he wants, and it sounds like politics had nothing to do with this (thankfully). I couldn't stand Clinton, but if I had the chance to have dinner with him, I would have jumped all over it. You don't get to break bread with a president every day.

    I'm pretty far from being a Bush fan, but you can't fault the guy for having dinner. And with other people no less.

    I didn't read Saban's quotes as getting crabby.

    When I opened the link, I was hoping for an anti-Bush rant.
  7. The president works for Saban -- and for you, and me -- so he shouldn't complain when the boss is too busy to eat.

    I make fun of Pube as much as the next guy, but c'mon, folks...

    The Presidency is a 60 seconds-of-60-minutes-of-24-hours-of-7-days-of-365-days-a-year job. The Presidency is the most full-time of all full-time jobs. NO TIME OFF. Got it? No. Time. Off.

    As a Taxpayer and American Citizen, I am, in fact, his employer, so I am gonna start to act like one.

    The President of the United States should, and in fact DOES, have a hell of a lot more pressing and urgent matters to attend to, rather than eating crab with a bunch of leatherhead football jocks. If his highly qualified and superbly efficient staff can't come up with a list, give me about 30 seconds, and I'll be happy to write it out for you.

    Get the hell back to work.

    Oh, by the way, GWB missing out on dinner with Nick Saban is no big loss for either party. Saban has all the personal warmth of a pirhana. ::) ::)

    Lyman, tell me what you "couldn't stand Clinton."
    The guy gave you welfare reform. He signed NAFTA. Under his watch, the stock market soared like it never has before or since; not saying he was responsibile, but he did not get in the way, certainly. What about him bothered conservatives? Is it that the sight of a guy who could be socially liberal and fiscally conservative scared the bejeezus out of you?

    Nah, Bill got a BJ and Lyman didn't. :D
