    Ok folks. I tried watching ESPN today (I typically only watch during football season). I needed a break from the earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear meltdowns, illegal alien invasions, union protests, economic collapse, euro riots, middle east wars, UN "sanctions", etc, etc, etc. The world is just too crazy. I know we have people at the highest level of gov't to handle and focus on that stuff.


    Thats why today, at about 300pm, I was shocked to turn on ESPN and see President Barack Hussein Obama laying out his picks for the WOMENS NCAA college basketball tournament. He went in depth about a few teams, a few players. Which made me wonder, again, is he watching that much basketball with all these crisis' going on? Or spending precious briefing time being told news about college kids playing a game?

    It was bad enough he took all the time for the mens tourney, getting briefed on BYU"s top scorer, the Kansas Jayhawks two stars, injured players, etc, info which he'd have to watch a lot of ball to know, or spend a good bit of time being briefed on it.

    But today, he let the world know that he likes the UConn Huskies womens team to make the women's college basketball championship.

    Rest easy and sleep well folks. Our president is on top of things!

    A: 'Cause he didn't know how to play golf!

    He had to, since he already made his NCAA picks. I'm certain that he was pressured by any number of women's groups and lobbyists that essentially forced him to do the same for the Women's NCAA.

    part of his e.r.a. iniitiative.
    when a musician (rock musician) hits a clam (bad note), somethimes they will "revisit", or hit the note again just to show that they meant to do it the first time.

    Yep. Spend precious presidential time picking NCAA mens and womens basketball games, while the world is amidst the worst global chaos since WW2.

    Next with be the N-C-double-gay basketball picks just to be fair.

    I'm sure the troops who may be going to Libya appreciate Obama spending those hours being briefed on the Kansas Jayhawks tournament chances and the injury to BYU's top scorer (both topics Obama discussed, without a teleprompter) rather than analyzing military options that may keep their mission more safe.

    I wonder if it took him more than 5 minutes like an average person who follows college hoops.

    Remember in 2009 when he started talking about how he may have Congress look into the NCAA college football bowl system to see if it was a monopoly and needed to be restructured into a playoff?

    My God. I wish Obama was as dedicated to real issues as he is in sports. I suppose he is used to his old ways as a Senator: Just vote "present" then boogie off to the chicken wing restaurant to watch the hoops game!!!
