Obama misses 7 baskets before he makes one

By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 4/9/12 12:00 PM EDT

President Obama was determined to sink a basket Monday morning as he took shots on the basketball court at the White House Easter Egg Roll.

He was 0-for-3 early on as he took shots with some pros and Harlem Globetrotters players gathered on the White House basketball court with a few dozen kids. Each shot that the pros -- or the kids -- made triggered a few pushups for everyone playing, including the president, who willingly got down on the ground in his blue dress shirt and khakis.

"Somebody saw me cheating on my push ups," he joked at one point. Later on, he signed a red, white and blue basketball decorated printed with his face and "44th President."

How come we’ve never actually seen footage of this guy playing basketball? As non-athletic as he was throwing out the first pitch, I can’t imagine he’s that good at basketball.

And the bigger question is...who gives a rat’s butt about him playing basketball?

Oh, the debt. Yeah, he has missed three budgets on that front and hasn't made one yet.

"Somebody saw me cheating on my push ups," Later that person was investigated by the Justice Department, audited by the IRS, and ridiculed by the media.

The visual of Obama taking seven tries before he sinks a basket, is clear enough. This sentence is less clear, however:

". . . he took shots on the basketball court at the White House Easter Egg Roll."

He is not close to being a decent bball player. He has an ugly shooting form and is unathletic.

The fact that he shot 0-7 against air is proof.

He is John Kerry with a tan.

Yesterday on my 55th birthday, I played 2-on-2 pickup basketball, two games with my brother and a 22 yr old and a 15 year old. It didn’t take me 7 shots to score, and I had a defense to play against.

I also played baseball in college and don’t throw like a girl, although my arm has gone away to some degree. His athletic resume consists of a second string bball player in Hawaii. Like everything else about him, his abilities and past are manufactured.

It’s tough to sink a basket with a white-hispanic shooting at you...

or...

the basket acted stupidly.

I saw him make a speech, and hit a 3 pointer on the 1st try.

Bad day.

For some reason, I’m reminded of how silly it was when the Globetrotters went to Gilligan’s island.

His entire administration has been one big jump of the shark.

"Somebody saw me cheating on my push ups..."

With those skinny arms of his, I have to wonder if he can even do one push up without cheating.
