Four years in and we find out the guy cant even play basketball.
Hes not that good, NBA Commissioner David Stern finally told us about basketball-obsessed President Obama in an interview with Reuters. Hes not as good as he thinks he is.
Talk about a game-changer. This was the whole reason we elected him in the first place. After eight years of the stuttering un-hipness of the Bush administration, we wanted somebody cool, modern, edgy. Somebody who had game, rhythm. Somebody with a jump shot.
Obama was so cool, he was even terrible at bowling.
He played with the stars. He practiced with Duke Universitys legendary squad. He made Reggie Love, Dukes former star captain, his body man on the campaign trail. NBA legends Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing and Carmelo Anthony want to hang out with him for fundraisers.
It all began to fall apart just days after he ascended to the presidency and the media began asking questions about Mr. Obamas basketball chops. Turned out, he didnt really play on his college basketball team as was widely reported. Not even junior varsity.
Then came the injuries. Who could forget that sad picture in the fall of 2010 of Mr. Obama, nursing a busted lip with an ice pack, watching from an upstairs window as the White House Christmas tree arrived on a horse-drawn carriage?
But it is the loss of coolness that will cost him the most. Nothing is so uncool as pretending to be good at something that you are not. There goes the much-prized youth vote of 2008.

Like most democrats, they always like to be fake and full of ****.
A black man that can’t play Bball, say it ain’t so! Must be his white side showing on the court.
Palin was starting point guard on her state championship team.
And Baraq was a bench warmer on his.
Of course the MSM never reported that.....
When he came through Indiana in 2008 I said he looked like he’d never actually played.
His shooting form is as sissy-looking as his golf form, but he can make the greatest Haplocanthasaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex hand-shadows when they throw the spotlight on him. Not even Abe Lincoln nor JFK, as skilled as they were with their hands, could come close to matching this talent.
In this scene, the T-Rex is about to attack the Happy from behind. What a show he puts on! Eek! Look out Happy!! The kids love it when he narrates using different voices for the dinos.
He wasted that talent when he decided to run for prez, much to the chagrin of science museum directors around the world.
does bathhouse barry dance, w/rythym? can he talk jive, w/o a teleprompter?
Darn that white side. ;-)
We certainly paid enough for it.
Yeah, and if he had golfed every day, rather than every 2nd or 3rd day, maybe we wouldn’t have had to deal with ObamaCare or various ‘stimuli’.
Half-white men can’t jump!...or dunk.
Or, apparently, run a country.
Alas, DumBO is a better basketball player than he is Pres__ent.
He didn't improve his golf game. You know perfectly well what he was doing on those golf outings, and it didn't have much to do with golf.
