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...

NC 2 A college hoops. I'd hate to be on a team that got picked to win by Skittles. He picked Chicago to host the Summer Olympics. He picked da Bears over the Packers. He picked the democraps to hold the House. He picked the ChiSox over the Yankees. He picked Orlando over the Lakers. He picked Marxism/Leninism over our Republic.

Everything Barry does turns to Obama - everyone knows that.

It's embarassing having a president of the United States being such an obsessive acolyte of basketball BASKETBALL?? --

What I wouldn't give for a president that obsessed over AMA Superbike racing, Indy Cars, Mountain climbing, Big Game fishing, chasing women, African safaris, Shooting Rhinos,

Right - we get stuck with an ice cream eater, a flip flop wearing Hawaiian fruit that gets pulled around by his ears by a 6 foot tall 200 lb wookie.

Let me guess—he’ll go mostly with the chalk, and after much blushing and giggling from Andy Katz—Obama will pick Ohio State to win it all.

If the GOP had any gonads, they would ask for equal time to this BS and point out while dumbo is fiddling around, the world is going to hell ON HIS WATCH. Furthermore, while he is doing nothing but race baiting and violating the Constitution, they are at work in the House, trying to get things in order. Lastly, rather than putting a position out there, he is simply playing defensive back that is if his line is broached in the Senate, he will just veto any bill that contains meaningful cuts.

I don’t think this guy will run for a second term. He’s never had to work hard before, and he doesn’t like it. Especially if it looks like there’s any kind of possibility that he’ll get creamed. He’ll step back and let Hillary run. She’s looking old for a reason. She’ll sell herself as “mature” and say that Obama was a nice guy, but just too young.

So long as he has the gullible pubic behind him, and the knowledge, CORRECTLY, that a good portion of the public will fall for his bogus speeches again, which they will, he figures he can get away with anything and still get a second term.

He may be right.

Dear Leader picked Memphis in 08 to take the whole tournament.

We had a large lead until the final minutes and then something went very wrong. Our best One and Done, MVP probable of the NBA this year, Derick Rose couldn't make his free throws and Kansas won.

Remember when we screamed to the world that Obama had no Leadership experience? This is the effect of someone that has no leadership pedigree. Good leaders position themselves to address crisis. They immediately see themselves as having an impact and effect on crisis. Leadership tends to get better as confidence and humility of capability is built and recognized. You just can’t go in saying...” I got it, no problem...” because you have no internal galvanization to pull from. The results of not having that galvanization is to freeze and not move. You are in a stuck state, not making any decision. Thus what Obama is doing right now, which is nothing.

” ... isn’t it time for another vacation???”

Why, yes it is.

http://www.sacbee.com/2011/03/14/3474279/obamas-visit-fuels-optimism-in.html

On a more personal level, the president is expected to make the trip with wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia. Their presence will be an added attraction in family-oriented Latin America.

WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama’s trip to Brazil, Chile and El Salvador beginning this week is still on, despite fears of a nuclear disaster in Japan and turmoil in the Middle East, officials said.
