How to use glib in a sentence?

  1. Bill Clinton:

    It is not a time for easy answers, for glib answers, or one liners, or applause lines, those are all great, that is part of campaigning, but at the end of the day, we need a president who has both the experience and the understanding to deal with the complexity of the problems we face.

  2. Donald Trump:

    It takes a lot more than being glib. She's not going to win, she got fired, and she ran for office and she lost in a landslide -- I don't see that as being necessarily great potential.

  3. Donald Trump:

  4. Lincoln Chafee:

  5. Peter Drucker:

    Leadership is not magnetic personality--that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not 'making friends and influencing people'--that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
