Obama 2 for 22 at Easter Egg Roll
The Weekly Standard ^ | 4/1/2013 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 04/01/2013 12:29:07 PM PDT by Old Teufel Hunden

POTUS at basketball court, with kids and Washington Wizards (don't have all names but John Wall included -- will get details for final wrap)

POTUS stepped to free throw line and kids were asked to stand on opposite sides, depending on whether they think he would sink it. Most kids moved in one direction, but one boy went to the "miss" side."Oh, man," a stunned POTUS said, hands on hips. The boy didn't budge. And three others joined.In sharp form, POTUS released the ball. It bounced off the rim and circled it -- miss."Come on. Come on. Did you see that?" Obama said.It got worse.A little while later, after playing tennis, Obama started to take shots amid the kids and pros. Miss. Miss. Off the rim. Miss. Miss. Off the rim. Airball. He moved closer to the net.But time and again, he missed. Of 22 shots POTUS took, he made two. (22 was general consensus of poolers)At one point, POTUS handed a ball to a boy and asked for help. The boy made the layup."He couldn't make one. I had to help him out," said Kahron Campbell, 10, of Landover, MD.

I thought der leader was such a great hoopster??? I'm starting to feel like our press is like the North Korean's press corps. Next, we'll find out that Obama shot 11 hole in ones the first time he played golf and has written 20 broadway musicals...

Maybe they can hire the kid to work in the Oval Office. He would do better than what we have now.

His lack of being able to make a basket will be blamed on the sequester....

I saw that video... “Brick” Obama only sank one shot from outside the key. His only other “2” was from right under the bucket. I have no doubt he was intensely embarrassed... it was a beautiful sight!

Didn't he claim to make a 3-pointer during the 2008 campaign?

I remember Chrissie Matthews pee-ing his pants about what a great athlete Obummer was.

Obama's an embarrassment. He makes it all about himself then makes himself out to be a total buffoon.
