    Default Obama hides Tiger talk

    Tiger Woods received a special invitation to speak at the inauguration.
    His inviters were stunned, shocked when he did not deliver the message they expected. A brief read and you will understand why the media swept Woods' remarks under the rug with no further ado and why the liberal left of our American society was again displeased with Tiger.

    His speech was entitled:

    "You'll Never Walk Alone"
    [text is word-for-word as posted on Tiger's web site]

    "I grew up in a military family - and my role models in life were my Mom and Dad, Lt. Colonel Earl Woods. My dad was a Special Forces operator and many nights friends would visit our home. They represented every branch of the service, and every rank.

    In my Dad, and in those guests, I saw first hand the dedication and commitment of those who serve. They come from every walk of life; from every part of our country. Time and again, across generations, they have defended our safety in the dark of night and far from home.

    Each day -- and particularly on this historic day -- we honor the men and women in uniform who serve our country and protect our freedom. They travel to the dangerous corners of the world, and we must remember that for every person who is in uniform, there are families who wait for them to come home safely.

    I am honored that the military is such an important part, not just of my personal life, but of my professional one as well. The golf tournament we do each year here in Washington is a testament to those unsung heroes.

    I am the son of a man who dedicated his life to his country, family and the military, and I am a better person for it. In the summer of 1864, Abraham Lincoln, the man at whose memorial we stand, spoke to the 164th Ohio Regiment and said: 'I am greatly obliged to you,and to all who have come forward at the call of their country.'

    Just as they have stood tall for our country - we must always stand by and support the men and women in uniform and their families.

    Thank you, and it is now my pleasure to introduce the US Naval Glee Club
    ..."

    ====
    Tiger Woods' 2-minute, 5-second tribute to the our nation's military was delivered January 18th at the Inaugural Celebration in Washington, DC! He had been subjected to intense pressure to attend and offer remarks. Especially so by liberals who have demeaned and criticized him for a decade for not joining their ranks.

    Yet, at the Lincoln Memorial, instead of paying homage to Barack Obama, Tiger paid tribute to our soldiers. Not once did Tiger mention Obama, the inauguration or the new administration. He had to understand expressing his love for America and appreciation for our military men and women would
    disappoint the national news media and the liberal left. But Tiger is his own
    man; his father taught him to be his own man.

    Somewhere over that cold, gray Washington sky, Colonel Earl Woods was smiling down on his beloved son. And there will be one more crying hug waiting for Tiger when the time comes he passes through heaven's gates into God's arms.

    What? You did not previously know what Tiger said? You did not see a video clip of him speaking on a national television network, you did not see a photo of Tiger at the Lincoln Memorial offering his remarks, you did not read a story in the NY Times? His appearance at the Inaugural Celebration had been widely hailed and promoted in advance by the Obama inaugural organizers.
    yet January 18 when he came and spoke . . .

    Oh, well.

    WELL...If you are as tired of this liberal media as I am, change the channel, and pass this on

    I checked this out on Snopes and it is true. If anyone has ever doubted
    whether Tiger is a classy guy then this should help erase the doubt. If you want to read about it then check out Tigers web site or http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/tigerwoods.asp <http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/tigerwoods.asp>

    What a totally classy guy.

    A Presidential Inauguration is a very fitting time to acknowledge our great privilege of having 200 years of the peaceful transfer of leadership. And if he had any regrets for the people's final choice, he had the character to make a moving and patriotic statement that still honored his father's oath to the President's position as commander-in-chief.

    I have known Tiger since he was a little boy, we grew up in neighboring communities in what was once a very conservative section of Orange County Calif. I used to hit golf balls next to he and his dad at the Navy base in Los Alamitos..it doesnt surprise me that his dad's conservative side has rubbed off on him. Tiger is also wise to the fact that many try and use him to further their political agendas, so when he gets criticized by the likes of Jim Brown and Bill Russell for not giving back to the black community, they have no idea that Tiger grew up in an all white neighborhood in Cypress Calif

    I think that is one of the reasons Tiger has stayed A political for now, plus with the gazillions he makes do you think he is for wealth redistribution...I dont think so, thats why he lives in Florida so he doesnt have to pay state income tax in Calif

    Read down to where they detail what Tiger said when asked what he thought about Obama being elected president...
