  • BREAKING NEWS!! Obama picks his brackets!

    Thank goodness that there isn't anything important for the president of the United States to be doing.

    Source: President Obama picks Spartans


    Barack-etology 2014
    resident Barack Obama, the nation's first basketball fan, again took marker to bracket with ESPN at the White House and selected Michigan State to defeat defending champion Louisville in the NCAA men's tournament title game.

    The path Obama took to arrive at his national champion, an event that has come to be known as "Barack-etology," was revealed on "SportsCenter" at 9:30 a.m. ET Wednesday. It is the sixth consecutive year he has made his picks with ESPN's Andy Katz.

    The above includes a gripping video of Obama taking important, decisive action on this burning issue.



    And we wonder why Putin and his cronies in the Kremlin openly laugh at Obama while they seize part of the Ukraine and refer to him as some sort of "prankster"

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I don't see why this is an issue. Every president has to have some leisure time. George W. Bush went mountain biking while he was in office.

      Excellent. I would in fact encourage the President to continue this hobby, and in fact, take up even more hobbies, and spend as little time as possible actually doing anything, for the rest of his term.

        You said "Obama" and "decisive action" in the same sentence!

          The problem is that he's on leisure time 90% of the time, coming off just to screw over the American people.

          Russia annexes Crimea? Send your wife and kids on vacation to China and give weak sanctions.

            Sure, but no need to publicise the fact and make yourself appear ridiculous.

                Or he wanted to show that he is just like an ordinary citizen that love sport. But with all the problem the US is facing, the perceptions of citizens will be as you say "make himself appear ridiculous"

                    Last week, he was creating an imperial presidency.

                    This week he's indecisive.



                    FWIW, irony is noted.

                      What do you expect from a Communist Socialist dictator who is stealing power yet is incompetent?

                        Well, he's being hilariously authoritarian over the law-abiding and indecisive over those with actual power and the will to use it, so there's not really any irony there, just cowardly self-absorbed opportunism expressing itself in different contexts.

                          That's what makes him dangerous -- he's indecisive in such an imperial way! And, on top of that, he has a phone and a pen!
