How to use bob in a sentence?

  1. Jackson Browne:

    The biggest influence? I've had several at different times - but the biggest for me was Bob Dylan, who was a guy that came along when I was twelve or thirteen and just changed all the rules about what it meant to write songs.

  2. Brett McGurk:

    (If) this is a situation which we knew Bob Levinson was in a prison cell in Iran, I think you know we'd have a different outcome here, that's something that we can't confirm. In fact, it appears that he's not being held in Iran. But we have this formal, now process, with Iran to continue discussing that case in a very aggressive and vigorous way, and that's something that we will continue to do.

  3. RAS CARDO REGGAE:

    ***(c)(p) REGGAE TRUTH- THE REAL -CULTURE YARD- IN TRENCH TOWN WAS AT THE BACK OF MY TENEMENT YARD. WHAT THE MEDIA AND JAMAICA HAS CALLED-CULTURE YARD-WAS JUST ANOTHER PLACE WHERE BOB MARLEY AND SOME OF US USED TO VISIT. I WILL NOT DISCLOSE ANY FURTHER DETAILS OF THIS LOCATION BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS DETAILED INFORMATION IN THEIR ARSENAL. IT HAD A CERTAIN NAME. SO FAR, WHAT JAMAICA HAS ADVERTISED AS BOB MARLEY'S PLACE OF CAROUSING WAS NOT THE REAL TRENCH TOWN CULTURE YARD. THE JAMAICAN MEDIA HAS BEEN WRONG IN MANY THINGS REGGAE AND OF TRENCH TOWN, AND THEY REFUSED TO LEARN THE TRUTH FROM THOSE WHO KNOW IT, AND LIVED IT. I AM RAS CARDO FROM TRENCH TOWN. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

  4. John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

    My brother Bob doesn't want to be in government -- he promised Dad he'd go straight.

  5. New Jersey:

    Aside from an ongoing Ethics Committee probe, the legal cloud over Menendez appears to be lifting. But he still faces political headwinds in his bid this year for a third Senate term and in his purported attempt to retain the committee post. Menendez’s net approval rating among registered voters has fallen 20 points since the start of 2017 -- the biggest decline of any senator up for 2018 reelection, according to a recent Morning Consult poll based on a survey from October through December 2017. New Jersey voters will continue to be reminded of Menendez's dishonest schemes as the election approaches in November, Republican National Committee spokesman Bob Salera recently said. If Menendez indeed reclaims his top post on the foreign relations committee, he would push aside Maryland New Jersey Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin, who now occupies the ranking-member post. The liberal wing of New Jersey Democratic also has expressed concern about Menendez’s return, considering he’s regarded as more moderate than Ben Cardin. Menendez, the son of Cuban immigrants, did not support former President Barack Obama’s efforts to improve diplomatic relations with the Cuban government or the Iran nuclear deal, brokered by the Obama administration. Federal prosecutors decided two weeks ago not to retry Menendez on corruption charges, after their case ended last fall in a hung jury. Menendez, 64, was charged with trading his political influence for gifts and campaign contributions from Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen. He denied the allegations all along. The prosecutors ’ decision ended Menendez and Melgen’s 11-week trial and their roughly five-year investigation. From the very beginning, I never wavered in my innocence and my belief that justice would prevail, Menendez said after prosecutors dropped the case. I am grateful that the Department of Justice has taken the time to re-evaluate its case and come to the appropriate conclusion. However, The New Jersey Democratic senator also issued a warning last year to those who were eager to replace The New Jersey Democratic senator in the Senate. To those who were digging my political grave so they could jump into my seat, I know who you are and I wo n’t forget you.
