Does winning take care of everything?

Many of our big name stars in the USA have fallen off of the wagon in some manner. The biggest names like Tiger Woods, Rick Pitino, Kobe Bryant all were caught cheating ... no sorrow .. no regret ... just plain ole liers and cheats. Even Nike was discussed enough to drop Tiger ... that is until last week when the Biggest name in cheating won and became the #1 golfer in the world again .. then the ad .. "Winning takes care of everything". Rick Pitino coach Louisville basketball is on the way to the finals in the NCAA tourneyment ... a while back he was having sex with a waitress on the table of a resturant .. bad ... hated ... and now he is the worlds best coach. Kobe Bryant ... caught .... buy the biggest diamond in town ... go to the Olympics and be on a winning team and bingo your back at #1 in the hearts of America.

Bill Clinton is the poster child for cheating and lying ... yet respected and admired in the Democratic party and speaks for $50,000 a hour.

These are cheaters and liers. I don't get it.

    Mar 30 2013: You are under the impression that Americans are smart, maybe that is the problem?

    People watch Basketball and Golf for entertainment. As long at they are entertaining, which means they win then yup people don't care.

    On other hand you have to be pretty stupid to look to a politician for entertainment? So I suppose it is based on an emotional reason. Considering the average American's knowledge of politics and politicians that might be what they base their decision on? Clinton is a good talker that doesn't offend anyone unless of course you have an IQ above 100... of course when your rice bowl is base on goverment largess that tends to have something to do with it as well.
