    If Nice Guys Finish Last, Why Not Elect a Big Meanie?

    Why is there such an insistence that the POTUS be "nice," or act "politically correct." Does anyone really care about that, when you risk breaking an ankle every time you go outside... from tripping over all of the "Now Hiring" signs?

    When you take someone out in public, don't you expect a level of decency from that person? Is it really too much we ask of our President to act like that, you know the person who is representing us to the world? That is important to some people.

    I personally would be embarrassed to take someone out in public and have them loudly act up. I can see though we have different expectations of how adults are supposed to act.

    True. I haven't seen many adults use the word "meanie."

    When I was young Nixon ran against Humphrey for president. I asked my dad why he was supporting Nixon.
    He asked me 'If you got in trouble in school who would you want to dispense with your punishment Nixon or Humphrey?
    That was an easy one Humphrey!
    He then asked me 'If your country needed someone to handle an enemy who would you want Nixon or Humphrey?
    That was an easy one Nixon!

    That's my answer! Nixon was crafty & tough though not nice to be sure. I'd take that type to lead in tough times anyday!

    I thought that Bush 43 acted very nice to his political opponents, and look where that got him with the media and their lap dogs.
    Its easier to run for office than to run the office.

    And this has nothing to do with getting along with democrats.

    Obama bombed 5 more countries on top of the 2 you are referring to.

    It has a lot to do with why media responses differ.

    Childish insults is not the only thing that causes people to react negatively.
