Skip to comments.Youth sports concussions draw Obama’s attention

President Barack Obama is a lover of games played on hard courts, baseball diamonds and in 10-yard increments. His two daughters are active in sports and, like many parents with children on athletic teams, he worries about their safety.
But unlike many of those parents, Obama is uniquely positioned to help address the concerns. [ ]
Obama once said hed have to think long and hard before allowing a son to play football because of the risk of head injury.

because sports is loaded with celebrities and that is how he view himself
Wow, thank goodness it is simple altruism, nothing more than that...I am so glad to know the lamestream press has assured us it isn’t a distraction from Bengazi or the VA or IRS or other things weighing down his popularity.
I have heard soccer causes more concussions than football.
What the Hell does that mean? Seriously. Its typical Obama fence-straddling. If he thinks it causes injuries, he should say so. If not, then say so. But this "think long and hard" is so typical of our dithering, never-put-your-ass-on-the-line president, even in a trivial situation like this, that its comical.
Indeed . . . it’s funny how the VA problems did not “draw Obama’s attention” till he “heard it in the news”funny how an executive cabinet department’s malfeasance has to be heard in the news by the very executive responsible thereunto. And he’s “mad as hell” over being caught.
I’m not particularly fond of the double entendres in that sentence, myself.
He should be paying more attention to larger issues like the VA scandal, the IRS scandal and others. But no, he is wanting to stick his nose into sports injuries because he “cares” about the children.
Aside from the fact that he's never thought 'long and hard' about anything, except perhaps Reggie Love, I wonder what our pansy-in-chief would see as more potentially harmful to a fifteen-year-old:
1) a mild concussion on the playing field or
2) the first blast off a one-hitter pipe/nice hot spoonful of hash oil?
Here we have a clown,playing President and with all of the major problems he’s created the only thing he can try and solve is concussions in kids.
I think that Obama needs to take a drug test to prove he’s avoiding the use of Cocaine.
Another red herring.
He’s a fag! What the hell would this swish know about sports? He throws like a girl, doesn’t know any names of athletes, wears mom jeans, rides a girls bike, talks with a lisp and writes filthy poems about Davis having oral sex with him.
Your message reminds me that Obama has been caught on camera showing his ignorance about sports.
He claimed he was a big White Sox fan, but when asked, couldn’t name a single favorite player, past or present.
And he said he went to White Sox games at “COMINSKEY PARK”, pronounced with an “N” in it. Any real baseball fan knows that the White Sox played at “COMISKEY PARK”, with no “N” in it.
What a joke. If he’s not the big sports fan, that’s ok, but don’t give us this bull blank about how you are just like regular folks, like baseball like regular people, etc.
Well, I for one am glad to know that our espn president is on top of this.....sarc
“Obama once said hed have to think long and hard before allowing a son to play football because of the risk of head injury. ”
But he has no problem with his son holding a man down and bashing his head on concrete...
