President Obama Continues to Put Sports First


Stop reading my website if you want, but I like Barack Obama. I like the guy more because of the person he seems to be than the policies he is implementing. Can we all agree that Jesus Christ himself couldn't come down right now and fix our country in five months? I think that is fair.

With that said, I am starting to get a little perturbed with all this "I'm a huge sports guy, look at me go," stuff that Barack has been doing.

It was reported on Monday that Barack has been named honorary chairman at the Presidents Cup (get it, because he's the president! ROTFLMAO!!!), and will be attending the event October 8-11.

The only head of state who did not attend was President George W. Bush in 2005 because of Hurricane Katrina.

Former President Gerald Ford was honorary chairman when the matches began in 1994, and former President George H.W. Bush accepted the role in 1996.

Since then, every active head of state or government in the host country has served as honorary chairman - U.S. presidents Bill Clinton (2000) and George W. Bush (2005); Prime Minister John Howard of Australia in 1998; South Africa President Thabo Mbeki in 2003; and Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada in 2007.


I'm not going to be a hypocrite here because I know that if I was president I'd love to do all the cool sports shit I was invited to, but seriously, our country is about as stable as Tim Clark over a putt to win a golf tournament, so we can all agree that maybe it isn't the best time to be shooting hoops with every basketball team and smiling your way through a golf event that doesn't even really matter? I mean, if this was the Ryder Cup, that'd be one thing, but it isn't and I think maybe we could skip this event and focus on not having car companies that drain money like they're Paris Hilton reblinging redazzling her Bentley.

Alright, my rant is over. Back to jokes about big putter grips. Hooray!

Almost. JC would have whipped the world into shape in the snap of a finger. EVERYBODY else on the globe would not have done any better than Barack.

Gotta give JC his props.

And, Barack's gotta do something with those toothpick legs...

And, I agree. I am liking Barack a little more every day. Toughest job ib the world. Look what it did to Jimmy Carter.

Barack looks bad in cargos. Yes, it's true.

It was specifically stated that there has been no word whether or not Obama will be at Harding Park. Right now this is all some meaningless title. I agree with you in that it would be terrible if he hangs out there all week watching golf, but I would be shocked to see him attend. At the most, if it fits with a travel schedule, I could see him showing up for 30 minutes at some opening dinner or something....but that is unlikely.
