Skip to comments.Obama to Host Bulls Viewing Party
Posted on 03/09/2011 1:37:02 PM PST by mandaladon
President Barack Obama isn't afraid to show a little hometown pride, especially when it comes to sports.
On Wednesday night, Obama will continue that tradition while watching the Bulls-Bobcats game at a viewing party at the White House.
And this is just the latest event Obama is dedicating to his Chicago teams.
At 2 p.m. Friday at the White House, Obama will honor the Blackhawks for their 2009-2010 Stanley Cup victory. The president invited the team to Washington, D.C., for a ceremony and a children's street hockey clinic on the South Lawn.
Obama's allegiances seem clear. Remember the 2009 MLB All-Star game? Obama threw out the first pitch wearing a black White Sox training jacket. The toss cleared the plate, with a little help from St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols.
Earlier this year, Obama predicted a win for the Bears in their post-season game against the Green Bay Packers.
His team didn't win -- but it's the thought that counts, right?
The Bulls tip off against the Charlotte Bobcats at 6 p.m. central time.

Typical of his entire life
I read today that his poll numbers haven’t really gone down in 6 months. What the hell is wrong with people ? ANYONE with half a brain has to see what this ass clown is trying to do . I have to believe that %47 of Americans are Marxist/ Socialist then .
One things for certain, he doesn't have any national pride.
Oh, Good Grief! The US debt is escalating, the Mid East is about to blow sky high, gas and food prices are heading up, up, up, and this jerk just wants to party, party, party. It’s reminding me more and more of Nero and his fiddle.
People benefiting from the current system will back Obama to the death.
BTW. Has he invited the Green Bay Packers to the WH yet?
obama is just gettin paid.
Still “focused like a laser”, I see.
What president? We don’t have a president.
“Barry’s on an never-ending party...it will end in 2012!!!”
Unfortunately, America’s economic goose will be cooked long before then.
And technically, this party-boy isn’t out until 2013.
Hell the catcher was standing in FRONT of the plate.
He’s either partying like it’s 1999 or ....
We have a man-child in the WH.
The fourth word is missing the “hit” on the back end.
That was when he wore his “mom jeans”?
By the way, today is Ash Wednesday, perhaps the Obama was just to busy to receive ashes in accordance with his “Christian” faith. Forget it, parties take a lot of time and preparation and MONEY!!!
I am not sure but I think when he was wearing his mama jeans he threw far left.
That is correct. The ball landed in FRONT of the plate. The catcher had to stand up and do a glove-facing-up catch.
It’s good to be the king!!!
I was thinking the same thing! Get this guy a fiddle and a toga!
Bull viewing? No way, it is a BULL SPEWING PARTY!
Seriously, I am with you, cannot comprehend why he doesn't slip further in the polls. Was discussing a little with my husband last night. A couple conclusions we came to are that, for all the people who pay no taxes or who have no assets, are dependent on government programs: they have nothing to lose by going along with him. They expect their hand-outs to continue, they have no fear of dropping real-estate values, their business taxes will not go up, and they don't have retirement savings that they fear will be ravaged by a crashed economy or stolen by the government for redistribution.
So, as the number who just get money from the government and have none of their own, grows (easy to happen in this economy), you have more and more people who have nothing to lose by supporting him. Sad reality. Surely it is more complicated than all that, but I think that is a big part of why he remains popular.
Is this all the Obamas do, party, shop, play golf, drink, vacation?
Send them packing. Besides the Clintons these two are trailer trash.
Without seeing the guest list, I’ll bet it will be really
dark in the room and at least 9 of the guests will have the
last name Shabazz.
The diode portion of his laser-like focus has obviously burned out.
I read yesterday that 30% of the people in the America these days are subsisting on income redistributed by the government. To that group, involvement in politics starts and ends in "how will this guy's/gal's policies effect my check?"
The rest of the time? Bread and circuses, nachos and football, what's on the tube? Where's my MTV?!!
It makes me want to weep for shame.
Only Catholics and Orthodoxers celebrate Ash Wed. Then again, you don’t get many non-Catholics in Smellcaucus I guess. ;)
You have no idea what you are talking about Clemenza. I am Protestant and we celebrate Ash Wednesday. Get a grip and get your facts straight. Ok, if he is Christian and not Catholic, then what is he???????????????
