The Messiah spoke out in an effort to tell the barons of college football how to have a playoff system even before he was president.
“If you’ve got a bunch of teams who play throughout the season, and many of them have one loss or two losses, there’s no clear decisive winner. We should be creating a playoff system,” he told CBS’ Steve Kroft on “60 Minutes” last November 15 (2008).
Now he seems to be exhibiting a propensity for telling everyone how to run their “business” — like Wall Street big guns and others. He signed a bill (the stimulus) that protected the same AIG bonues he called “an outrage” and now will probably sign a bill imposing confiscatory taxation on those same bonuses.
So Barack Obama is unafraid to take any position on just about anything.
And he has gone into sports management yet again; offending some very good young men, their coach and fans, needlessly.
Does he think he’s always right and we must know? After all, “I won.”
We don’t have to believe….
Duke Coach Slam Dunks Obama
From Fox News and the Associated Press
Barack Obama picked North Carolina to defeat Louisville for the NCAA championship, a relatively safe selection for a trailblazing president.
Obama spent part of Tuesday making his tournament picks for ESPN, which posted his completed bracket online Wednesday and showed the First Fan filling it out with Andy Katz on the noon edition of “Sportscenter.”
Of course, the president’s choice drew a reaction from the Tar Heels’ most intense rival.
“Somebody said that we’re not in President Obama’s Final Four, and as much as I respect what he’s doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said from the Blue Devils’ first-round site in Greensboro, N.C.
The president had top-seeded Pittsburgh join the No. 1-seeded Tar Heels and Cardinals in the Final Four, but chose second-seeded Memphis to beat Connecticut in the West Regional.
“I think Memphis has got a very athletic team,” Obama told Katz, an ESPN college basketball analyst. “I think they’ve got a good shot.”
