President Obama's 2011 NCAA Brackets
Posted by Jesse Lee on March 16, 2011 at 12:20 PM EDT
As he does every year, the President filled out his brackets predicting the winners of the men's and women's NCAA basketball tournaments, but discussing it with Doris Burke of ESPN, he began with a call to stand with the people of Japan:
One of the things I wanted to do on the show was, as people are filling out their brackets -- this is obviously a national pastime; we all have a great time, its a great diversion. But I know a lot of people are thinking how can they help the Japanese people during this time of need. If you go to usaid.gov -- usaid.gov -- that will list all the nonprofits, the charities that are helping out there. It would be wonderful for people to maybe offer a little help to the Japanese people at this time -- as theyre filling out their brackets. Its not going to take a lot of time. That's usaid.gov. It could be really helpful.

(This is a Drudge headline.)
what a douche
Obama’s got a basketball jones...a basketball jones...oh baybee ohh.......
sadly, not satire
another reason to hate basketball....or thug ball as I like to call it....(I call it other things too...)
What a complete moron
What a tool Obama is. Lightweight one too.
Short man syndrome?
I had to read this twice, and couldn’t believe that Obama actually said this.
Well, it’s good to know he’s on top of the NCAA brackets.
Reading the headlines you would think the nuclear reactors are the only problems right now for the Japanese.
For many Japanese a nuclear meltdown would probably be a ticket for them to reunite with their familes. Sad but true.
NHK Tokyo, Japan Live TV... http://bit.ly/idutY6
Boy howdy, was Obama right when he said elections have consequences.
He is a typical moron ball team fan and TV watching idiot. The NCAA, NFL, NBA and MLB love him.
Gosh, what an inspiring leader.
The man is brain dead. POS leader of the free world. Loser in chief.
Is he deliberately a douche to all our allies?
This guy is beneath contempt!
I'm not filling out any brackets, Zero...I'm not even watching your damn tournament.
I may be one of those ignorant people Zero hates, but I’ve never filled out any brackets much less considered doing so a ‘national pasttime’. In fact, I have no idea what a bracket even is. I feel somehow deprived of a national pasttime; maybe I’ll go golfing instead - that should cheer me up, right?.
That is a GREAT LINK! Thank you!
It’s unintelligible to me, too. Something to do with a sport?
I am mortified by this idiot!!!! I could scream!
This is all he says about what is going on in Japan?????
And where are all the celebrities coming on t.v. asking for donations and having concerts like they did for Haiti???
Lord forgive me for hating this man as much as I do. On Judgment Day, please pass over this hate...with the understanding evil has been leading his heart and soul (if he even has one).
In psychology, procrastination refers to the act of replacing high-priority actions with tasks of low-priority, and thus putting off important tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite such behavior as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision. Schraw, Pinard, Wadkins, and Olafson have proposed three criteria for a behavior to be classified as procrastination: it must be counterproductive, needless, and delaying.
Procrastination may result in stress, a sense of guilt and crisis, severe loss of personal productivity, as well as social disapproval for not meeting responsibilities or commitments. These feelings combined may promote further procrastination. While it is regarded as normal for people to procrastinate to some degree, it becomes a problem when it impedes normal functioning. Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying psychological disorder.
This guy sure is conflicted. He tries his hardest to destroy the West, then urges us to support people in other nations that will be severely impacted by the decline of the West.
This guy is five miniature tomatoes, a couple of carrots, and a whole lot of lettuce short of a garden salad.
If we’re being honest, he has destroyed enough lettuce to produce millions of salads. The remaining heads are small, they’re more likely to spoil, and he’s not done yet.
Well, Obama has given this non-sports person a question to ponder - what the H*** is a “bracket?”
I hate "thug ball" as another Freeper above called it and have no idea what a "bracket" is either. The fact that he thinks it is a national pastime shows how out of touch he is with real Americans. My favorite pastime is reloading.
FUBO. Most of us don’t give a cold crap about basketball.
Freakin moron. A$$hat. We care that 20 thousand + people just died, and hundreds of thousands are without power in freezing temperatures lacking food and water.
Pull your head out of your a$$ you arab freak.(God is my witness, I despise that cretin)
He treats all infidels that way.
Oh my, THAT is gonna hurt in the election cycle. Because just damn, its sickeningly true.
“Ever since I was a little baby, I always be dribblin’
In fac’, I was de baddest dribbler in the whole neighborhood
Then one day, my mama bought me a basketball”
Predicting college basketball is a national pasttime? Really? My family and our friends must have missed that memo. Our grifter-in-chief is the worst POTUS ever and a lightweight girlyman to boot.
So, while people are starving, cold and just had their entire city wiped off the map, with tens of thousands dead and threat of nuclear meltdown, lets take a few minutes, from our vapid sports game, or General Hospital, to click on a link about Japan
Honestly, that is just about the most sickening thing I have ever heard from this guy.
And this episode with the brackets.. this is Obamas jump-the-shark moment.. I firmly believe he just lost the re-election
You do lay it on heavy on almost every thread, but I like it.
Brackets? Is that like point spread?
So this is something to do with gambling?
It’s just a good thing he’s not a horse lover
or we’d have a parimutuel president.
Where the heck was the BARF alert! I’m so over hearing one more thing from this complete idiot, fake president!
He’s not my favorite president either, but here’s a video of what he actually said.
The Japanese should offer help to America, because, she is being destroyed by a deflated basketball for a Pres__ent.
Aren’t sports betting pools illegal in most states?
