ESPN: clearly rooting for Obama
I just finished watching SportsCenter. For one segment, the alleged topic was the last night’s team USA basketball exhibition versus Brazil. The game was played in Washington DC.
But the bigger ESPN story seemed to be Barack Obama.
There’s a replay of Barry Oh! holding court with a interview regarding the 1992 Dream Team versus the current national team. The question allows Obama to suck up to Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and Kobe Bryant.
Then there’s not one, but two separate cuts to Barry and Michelle—to the oohs and ahs of the sports readers—cuddling at courtside and appearing on the “kiss cam.”
BTW, I wonder who comp’d Barry and Mooch on the seats? (And I suppose it was too late to go golfing…)
All this while tens of millions of Americans are out of work, tens of millions more are underemployed, and still millions more have just given up looking for work.
Instead (begin sarcasm font), those unemployed Americans should be out somehow stimulating the economy and creating value with their good government jobs and/or free government handouts, as the President does so well (close sarcasm font).
Still, there is some good news for normal Americans: going to the game kept Barry from further damaging the nation’s security and economy.
Here’s the verbal puff piece from the worldwide reader in sports.
