that’s so gay
They would try to make it news if the Boy King farted!
What about Afghanistan!?! I’m really starting to despise the Obozo.
Next he just needs to get his horse to be a member of the Senate.
Playing basketball produces carbon. Not to mention the production of the basketball itself produced tons of carbon.
You must have missed it.

“Tales From the Obama Bedroom”
By KATHARINE Q. SEELYE
SNIPPET: “In an interview with Glamour magazine, Michelle Obama reveals that her husband, Barack, is so snore-y and stinky when he wakes up in the morning that their daughters wont crawl into bed with him.
The interview, in the magazines October issue, was conducted by Tonya Lewis Lee, who is married to Spike Lee, the filmmaker.
Update: Glamour has updated its Web site now with a fuller quote from Mrs. Obama, and heres a complete transcript of the passage:
Q: Speaking of your girls, what do you think they think of Mommy? How do they think of you?
Mrs. Obama: You know my hope in my gut is that I am just Mommy. I dont think this part registers to them. I mean so much of our relationship is based on our world at home. Its getting up _ you know we have this ritual in the morning. We get up and they want ten more minutes so they can come in my bed and if Dad isnt there _ because he is too snore-y and stinky, they dont want ever to get in the bed with him _ but we cuddle up and we talk. Weve talked about everything from the boy that one daughter doesnt particularly like in school to what is a period to _”
Just when you think the Doofus in Chief can’t get any lamer.
Does the asshole ever work?!

Pakistan’s military rejects US aid bill

Pakistan’s powerful military rejected U.S. attempts to link billions of dollars in foreign aid to increased monitoring of its anti-terror efforts, complicating American attempts to strike al-Qaida and Taliban fighters on the Afghan border.
Although the U.S.-backed government of President Asif Ali Zardari has the final say on whether to accept the money, the unusual public criticism threatens to force its hand and undermine military cooperation with the Americans just as the Pakistani army prepares for what could be its most important offensive against extremists since the U.S.-led anti-terror campaign began exactly eight years ago.
Any breakdown in intelligence sharing and other types of cooperation would hurt the American fight against a resurgent Taliban in Afghanistan. U.S. and NATO commanders say the war there cannot be won unless Islamabad does more to tackle extremists on its side of the border.
In Washington, President Barack Obama met with his national security team for a strategy session on Afghanistan after signaling that he was not considering a troop withdrawal. The session came amid new polls showing waning support for the war in the United States.
The military’s criticism of the bill came in a brief written statement that said senior commanders, including the army chief, “expressed serious concern regarding clauses impacting on national security.”
Among other strings, the bill conditions U.S. aid on whether Pakistan government maintains effective control over the military, including its budgets, the chain of command and top promotions.
Some analysts said the military’s statement had little to do with genuine dislike of a bill that stands to help crumbling schools, roads and hospitals. They said the army was sending a message to the Pakistani and U.S. governments about the limits of civilian control in a country that’s been subject to military rule for half of its 62-year history.

I see he is still in full play mode.
Obama dribbles, while Rome burns.
Looks like Joe Wilson wasn’t invited/
At the GOPers should know how to defend him. He only knows how to go to his left.
Where’s Plugs? Will this be televised?
I wonder where all the feminists who backed Obama will be since he didn’t invite any women to shoot the rock. I hear Hillary is deadly from beyond the arc. Will it be shirts vs skins?
All in all though, what a joke. Everything going on and he’s shooting hoops??? Nice to see he takes his job seriously. Maybe he can do a little touch football on the east lawn next.
at first i read this as satire
Reminds me of a similar West Wing Episode...
...I’d rather see them box.
We need a 2009 version of Aaron Burr
white coats and white tennies and not a single word about military shot dead in front of recruiting offices or black youths beat to death in the streets of the city he helped mold.....not a single word about the bravery of the troops overrun last weekend in Afganistan, or how they refused to medi-vac out, choosing to donate blood in the middle of combat, then picking up their rifles, to join, wounded, their brothers fighting so bravely for their lives and for America.
Wouldn’t want to take some time to go to any military hospital to spend a few moments with an injured hero soldier now would ya ya P.O.S. marxist poser.
Go play thug ball.
Wow Bammy’s Boy’s Club. But in this case for tax-payer supported adults.
“You hit him high and I’ll hit him low.”
No Republicans. Good thing, if he got fouled, the Secret Service would probably have to tackle the player and drag him off the court.
Though the idea has appeal.
Reminds me of Idi Amin playing basketball with the Harlem Globetrotters.
Six blue dogs in that group. That can’t be an accident.
There is apparent progress, though, _resident Obama has managed to break Patrick Murphy’s lip lock on John Murtha, at least for a few hours.
Does this Resident EVER work?
Perhaps he should review the job description.
Maybe he should step down if the position he holds is too stressful for him... or is he just lazy?
hussein is all about anything but being president.
Zero plays while soldiers pay.
and he doesn’t find time to make decisions on afghanistan.
he is a disgrace.
Impotent figureheads never have to work, you would think the Marxist’s/ Communist’s controlling his agenda may start to get pi$$ed off they have to do all the heavy lifting.
