Obama and company can NEVER begin a press conference on time. I ALMOST feel sorry for the jounolists...NOT. But still I can’t get over how late they are all the time. Why not give an accurate time? I know it takes time ensuring all the lies are accurate but come on. This thing was scheduled for 2pm...then 230pm...and now.......
There was a nice explanation for this saying, on the quote site.
Kings (especially before the [French] revolution) didnt need to be punctual. They could show up when they wanted. Afterall, people would wait for them. But [King Louis XVIII of France, to whom the quote is often attributed] suggests that one way a king can show respect for other people is to meet them at the appointed time. If this is true for kings, it certainly is true for you and me.
Authority figures who are unpunctual are low rent. It is another sign of a lack of class around Obama.
