The Real March Madness: As Economy Sinks, Obama Picks Final Four on ESPN, Appears on Leno

By Debbie Schlussel
Well, I’m so glad we have a Commander-in-Chief who has his priorities straight.
As the economy continues to sink ever lower, President Barack Hussein Obama is acting like a distracted kid in a candy store, instead of a President of a country in major distress.
While Americans continue to lose their jobs en mass, stock and housing values continue to plummet, the mortgage crisis continues, and there are signs that gas will rise to $4 a gallon by year’s end, Obama is on ESPN picking his final four NCAA basketball tournament semi-finalists and appearing on Jay Leno. Look at me, I’m the Prez. This is, like, waaaaay totally cool. Really fun.
You can watch Barack Obama do his best Dick Vitale, today, on ESPN. His best fixing of the economy . . . you won’t be seeing that for a long time, if ever. The sports cable channel, whose reporter Andy Katz spent a great deal of time with Obama, is calling this “Barack-etology.” Sorry, but I’d rather see a better Barack-onomy.


Priorities, schmiorities. Don’t expect this guy to ever stop living like a rock star and become a President. He’s a PINO–President in Name Only.
Here’s a preview of this guy’s latest Walter Mitty fantasy lived out while America sinks:

Hello Debbie and All
Didn’t sheik hussein tell businesses not to go to Las Vegas to have their business conventions and meetings because Vegas has gamblng? But isn’t filling out a basketball pool with a chance to win $10,000 gambling?
Just what you said Debbie about hussein, “Do What I Say Not What I Do.”

“Rock Star” or no “Rock Star” you can’t deny the fact that he’s done more in the two months in office than DUMByah did in the previous eight years.
From what I recall the first thing Jr. told Obama, after the election, was to “Take a vacation”. What proper words of advice from a guy that had more vacation time than any other president in our history.
Other than that, I agree with most of what you say.
By the way: UConn, Louisville, Duke, Oklahoma in the Final Four. I will be seeing UConn cutting the nets down at our beloved Ford Field 🙂

This part scared me more than your main topic (perhaps because I have become numb to more stories about Obama’s incompetence):
[there are signs that gas will rise to $4 a gallon by year’s end]
Not only would that be dangerous (more money for the Islamofacts to support terrorism) but it would be disasterous to what is left of our economy. That having been said, how can gas go up to 4$ a gallon during a recession (and I have an MBA with a concentration in economics from a highly rated program)?

Debbie, Four dollars a gallon? Will the economy rebound that much or will our dollars be so worthless?
KING HUSSEIN COBRAMA should never be questioned. He is the hip, cool President. He can never be questioned. He is like the Chuck Norris facts.

“As the economy continues to sink ever lower . . .”
Huh? Market’s been up 5 of the past 6 days. It’s way up today right now.
The President needs to have light-hearted moments.
“He’s a PINO–President in Name Only.”
First I’m hearing this sentiment. It’s been nothing but “he’s doing too much!” You up on the news, Debbie?

Yes Debbie. For heavensake. Why would you ever try to question our Dear Leader :)???? He has signed more Executive Orders in a month, than any other President has done in their entire time in office. What if he wasn’t such a lover of leisure, while people are Jobless and Starving and Homeless and can’t figure out how to fill out their Welfare Applications????? He might even be construed as a Proletarian. It’s Just……Madness.

Actually, for the first time since becoming president, he’s doing something that he knows something about.

Well it could be worse, that bracket could be for the women’s tourney–which will be won by UCONN–NUFF SAID. I know, but hey I was going to Community College and transferred–SHOULD’VE STAYED THERE AND GONE TO SACRED HEART U in Fairfield! But they have a semi-successful women’s hoops team…Can’t lose for winning or something like that.
And to trewsdetroit, I hope the UCONN men do win it all. But that 6OT mega thriller against Syracuse may have taken everything out of them. Memphis should have that number 1 spot. So should they play UCONN in the regional final, Memphis will come it with a MAJOR chip on its shoulder.
By the by, UCONN is the only college to have the men and women win the NCAA title in the same season. That was in 2003-2004…perhaps the single biggest sports moment in CT history…tells you how little there is in The People’s Republic of CT-Stan…home to dopey leftists like Dodd, Lieberman, Rosa DeLauro, Joe Cortney, Chris Murphy and my “rep” Jim Himes, who is a shill for the TNUC PELOSI and the RINO Republican Governess Jodi Rell.
