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.

OMG! Heheh, fits the narrative perfectly!
Barry has done a good job of running the country...into the ground!
Now that is clever, RWA! Well done. You have me chuckling out loud.
Actually, I thought he went both ways.
Nice pic of HomoBama!! Too funny!
I’d still love to see B. Hussein vs. Sarah Palin one-on-one. Palin would skunk him.
Now Lincoln, he really could use an ax, although he never had to fight vampires. In Springfield, he chopped his own firewood. He liked to show off by holding a doubleblade ax at the end of its handle with his arm extended to the level of his shoulder. Try that sometime. He was about age 50 at the time. Reminding me of another story. Washington had a parlor tricjed he showed at the Raleigh Tavern: He would crack a walnut between his thumb and forefinger. Even John Quincy Adams, probably the most sophisticated of all our presidents, once was invited for a tree-planting in Washington. He tried to break the ground with a dinky little silver shovel. Didnt work, Asked a workman for a real shovel, took off his dress coat, and began attacking the ground with the expertise of a working farmer. Once he had made a hole deep enough for the young tree, he turned the spade over to the workman, and put his coat back on. The onlookers cheered him wildly, but, alas, he did not acknowledge their plaudits. He was as cold as Mr. Obama, but would not stoop to conquer.
LOL! Anyone have the picture of him with his busted up lip looking out the window?? It was PITIFUL! He looked like a child!
he’s not “black” — just a faker. Half white, raised by his white mother and grandmother then with his Indonesian dad. He’s not “black”
Who busted his lip??? Michelle??
Let’s not forget his self-proclaimed ‘Special Olympics’ bowling exhibition when he scored a total of 37!
Couldn't find the window pic, but he looks pretty weird here.
Ooh, ooh! Is this it?
LOL!!! THAT”S THE ONE!!! He looks like a CHILD! oops...he IS a child.
