Barack Obama and the Dallas Cowboys
Barack Obama is to the United States presidency as the Dallas Cowboys of the last ten years have been to the National Football League: a spectacle that’s perhaps interesting, but is limited to chronic underachievement and generalized losing.
As with the Cowboys, the Obama Administration is touted for its talent. Yet when the game is played, the results are often a loss. Sometimes the loss is a just football game; other times it’s the loss of a once-great America by bitterly clinging to failed leftist policies.
The Cowboys have a flashy stadium and celebrity owner; America has a celebrity president who appears on Nickelodeon, Jimmy Fallon, and David Letterman. The Cowboys have their own clueless, die-hard fans and with a 47% base, so does the President.
Finally, the Cowboys are sometimes described as “America’s Team” while Obama remains America’s president.
