Barack Obama revealed his NCAA men's basketball tournament picks to ESPN today. The president plays populist in his rhetoric. But in his NCAA bracket, the president favors the one percenters of college basketball.
The presidential Final Four consists of #4 seed Louisville (Midwest), which won last year's tourney; #1 seed Florida (South), a two-time national champion under coach Billy Donovan; perennial powerhouse #1 seed Arizona (West), which made the tournament every year between 1985 and 2009; and #4 seed Michigan State (East), a team that has made its way to the Sweet Sixteen in five of the last six years.
No Stephen F. Austin? No Coastal Carolina? No Mercer? The hardwood have-nots could have used the power of the president's bully pulpit as inspiration to take on the basketball bullies. Surely the transformational figure who ushered in "the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal" could have performed the minor miracle of bringing a national championship to the Weber State Wildcats and the long suffering basketball fans of Ogden, Utah.

Wow, I'm thrilled that Obama has time to pick the brackets winners. Now, Obama, when the University of Ukraine plays the University of Russia, who do you have pick to win?
I'm going for UConn for both men's and women's championships.

Looks to me like he picked the final four that ESPN told him to pick.

I'm sure obozo reminisces about the good ole days when he use to play pick up basketball games at health clubs and outdoor parks in Chicago, in order to pick up new sexual partners. Yep, you can read about it on Google if you do a search....I pray for a disease that will put him down, like the aliens in the 1950s movie War Of The Worlds, who expired when they came in contact with Earth's atmosphere and germs.

He he he! The Shockers for my pick, unless by some act of God Virginia looses to Memphis. Then all bets are off. Florida has been cursed.
