Barack Obama is a self-confessed hoops junkie. He fills out an NCAA bracket every year and plays the game regularly.
But evidently not all that well. If you think Obamacare is a dribbling mess, the president’s basketball game is even worse. In fact, it’s downright sick.
Obama and we would be better off if he spent his court time on job creation instead. But so far he has refrained from putting a full-court press on that.
Obama was on the White House basketball court today with a group of children and the NBA’s Washington Wizards, shooting baskets during the fitness-themed White House Easter Egg Roll.
Kobe Bryant and LeBron James he wasn’t.
Call the Prez The Guy Who Couldn’t Shoot Straight. He missed 20 of 22 shots. Even the Wizards don’t shoot that poorly. Hell, Ray Charles didn’t shoot that poorly.
If we have to fire some nuclear missiles at fellow hoops junkie Kim Jong Un in North Korea, let’s all hope that our commander-in-chief isn’t pushing the buttons.
