Tiger Woods Innaugaration Speech - Absolutely true from his web site. Pic w/ his dad Col Earl Woods

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.

You hardly ever hear of what he is doing with his great regard and concern with educational opportunities for children, with lots of his own money.
He will go down in history, importantly, like Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicholas, as a great citizen-humanitarian.

Is this particially why the media completely roasted him?
THe coverage of his affairs were disgusting.
There were 5 or so cops murdered at once up in Seattle at the same time this broke.
One night I was watching ABC news and they ran a 2.5 minute peice on the Tiger affair
then afterwards ran a 1 minute peice on the slain officers.
How is it that ABC believes 5 murdered cops isnt bigger news than a Golfer cheating on his wife.

Since then I suspected the media had it out for him.

There is nothing White Liberals hate more than a conservative black person.

You might have something there. Look at the way the mainstream media has always treated Alan Keyes. He makes them extremely uncomfortable. On the other hand, they seem to be afraid to give Walter Williams any shit. He's too intelligent, and too well respected, and besides, he hits back.
