I wrote a sentence under the online news comment section:
I would say he does a good job this time, practically showing he's tough with zero consequence, ideally showing what's normal and should be done.
But I am confused with many things,
- he did what I think is a good job before the news is out, so I should use past tense "did", but I was commenting under the latest news section(but still two days old), it's so recent that I feel does is more proper, and to me since I know he did a good job only when I read the news, it's like he just does it a few second ago, so it's more natural to me to use present tense, so what should I use?
- In the second half of the sentence, it sounds well to use adverb practically and ideally, but there is no verb there, is this usage valid? Or I have to use comma to separate the sentence? Like "...this time, practically, showing...", but this sounds strange to me.
