Skip to comments.As World Burns, Obama Tapes NCAA Basketball Brackets For ESPN Today
Posted on 03/15/2011 7:04:38 AM PDT by kristinn
An uncritical one line report in Mike Allen's 'Playbook' column at Politico this morning says:
"PRESIDENT OBAMA is taping his NCAA picks today, and theyll be revealed tomorrow on ESPN."
With our top Asian ally Japan facing an economic meltdown on top of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear plant crises--an economic meltdown that is already affecting the U.S. and global economies; with the Middle East in flames; with the U.S. government on the verge of bankruptcy; with the U.S. still involved in two wars, Barack Obama is focused on being the cool guy with the jocks in school by being filmed picking his NCAA men's basketball tournament picks.
Awww yes...a little basketball and then maybe some golf and if possible some partying on the taxpayers dime all while the world is going to........
He will F this up also.
It’s good to know he had enough gravitas to get elected. /s
Chaos reigns and Zero is watching B-ball.
He looks out at the rioting and flames and smiles at his creations.
“Can’t I just eat my waffle?”
Truly Amazing. This guy is clueless. What a Disgrace.
Gotta get it done before tee time.
In classic management theory, Barack Obama would have to be described as an abdicative manager. The abdicative manager evidences a tendency to flee from responsibility and is frequently encountered in situations where he or she never wanted the job in the first place (for instance, a son or daughter who inherits a company or the individual who discovers that they are incapable of adequate performance). Abdication can be exhibited in a variety of ways, ranging from physically removing oneself through travel (the confusion of movement with action), to obsessing about personal interests or a limited range of controllable subjects.
Obama's frequent vacations and absences, especially in times of crisis, coupled with his unwillingness to personally invest himself in key initiatives, are demonstrative of this style.
Run away, Brock, run away!
Wednesday nite is party nite!
World burning during March Madness inconveniences 0h0m0llah. However, he has time to make sure that one of “his people,” Manning, is comfortable in jail and that Manning’s self-esteem is at all-time high.
Will Americans ever again get a good night’s rest?????

It was good while it lasted...
Does this guy Hate Japanese People?
Obama or whatever his real name is has a job. His job is to come out of his trailer as actors do and say the words his masters have written down. His job is to speak his lines and for this he will be rich beyond his wildest dreams. His job is to push the facist Alinsky way. He is not a person of his own mind. He is a constructed mouth piece. A wind up doll. Pull the string and the words his masters want spoken come out.
What a sickening and pathetic wretch he is. A whore.
Pick 1/2 of he final four correctly and win the Nobel Peace Prize!
Sorry for posting the other thread, did not see this one.
Could be due to his Indonesian upbringing.
You can bet he has at least a half dozen advisors for “his” picks. Wonder what they are costing us.
Look it’s FIRST things first...just remember the criticism of Bushes fly over from the press on Obama..((crickets))
This description is completely accurate. Obama acts as if he has won the lottery, and the grand prize being that he gets to live in the White House and enjoy all the perks. He likes being President, but he has no interest in doing President.
Words fail me. Sometimes the White Hut reminds me of Versailles in 1789.
I hope he does as well as he did with his football picks. If I were a top seed I’d be saying please don’t pick us! And yes while Rome burns....
In other words, Obama is just lazy and incompetent.
We knew this all along.
How a deciding 20% of the American electorate could not see this in 2008 is incredible.
PRESIDENT OBAMA is taping his NCAA picks today,
What the heck is that? taping? I never heard of it before.
Oh gosh Kristinn disregard my post. I was saying taping (as in package)....lol. I see what they mean now. Like taping/picking. Goodness I need to learn how to read.....lol.
Being a prop is even above his pay grade.
God forgive me and I repent, but sometimes it’s so hard to love thy enemy...I HATE THAT SOB with a PURPLE PASSION!! OK, I repent for the 100th time, but I still HATE HIM!
EVERYTHING is above his “pay grade”. He retains the mind of a teenager while trying to look ‘cool’ for all his “brother’s”.
With each new day, this Kenyan usurper shows us that he is the absolute worst pResident our country has ever had. He has to go before he totally destroys us and what remains of the economy and our freedoms.
START IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS TODAY!
For the idolaters, THIS is news!
The 0ne is going to show us how he is so much like the rest of us, a “common man” who enjoys his sports.
Forget the real world events, forget Libya, forget Egypt, forget Israel, forget Japan.
Hell! For that matter, forget the “g-ddamned USA”!
It’s NCAA basketball!!! Yippee!
Wake me when this nightmare is over...
This guy is the majorette at the beginning of the circus parade...IMO, he is capable of being the guy in the back with a shovel and broom.
This guy obamma sees his presidency as a way to enjoy himself.
That is why I am convinced he only wants one term. Why should he want to work for eight years for 400K a year when he can work 4 years for 400K for the rest of his life. He will already go down in History as the first “African American” President so he does not need to worry about legacy. History often improves a President’s action overtime anyway. He just needs to figure out a way to bow out gracefully.
Give the guy a break. He made “the rise of the oceans slow and the planet begin to heal”, didn’t he? He’s entitled to some down time.
Cuz the prez haz prioritiez.
Cuz the prez haz prioritiez.
How...sick. With all that needs his attention, Obama spends his time golfing, televising his NCAA pics, and hosting parties for Black History Month.
I have liberal family coming for a visit in a few weeks. Keeping my mouth shut over his outrageous behavior is going to be very difficult.
Forget it....money is not the issue with Obama. He wants another term badly....his EGO demands it !
Let’s hope he does not get it.
True that for sure.
Yup, it's all about him.
