While Middle East Burns and Economy Teeters, Obama Focuses On NFL Replacement Refs

Posted by Brian
It's obvious that the President is a big fan of sports. He frequently inserts himself into discussions of both pro and amateur sports, including his annual televised NCAA Bracket Picks, fancying himself as the new "Jimmy the Greek". You would think he would have the common sense to at least not give the appearance of being out of touch, what with some of the serious issues facing the country, and the rest of the world.
Riots in Greece and Spain. The Middle and Near East are on fire with anti-American Islamists protesting. China is threatening war with Japan.  The U.S. economy is teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff. Yet, what is the picture being painted by the White House?  Barack Obama sitting in front of a big-screen TV, upset over a controversial call in the Seahawks/Packers game!

Is this what Barack Obama calls being "in touch" with the American people?  Ignoring real problems which hold real consequences for the American people, while being concerned about whether a referee made the correct call?

There have been others, including some who have ties to the White House and this President, who have said that Barack Obama likes campaigning, but is just "bored" in actually doing the day-to-day work that is involved with being the President, or that he doesn't like work.

That being the case, voters should do him a favor and fire him so he can find a job that doesn't bore him or that he does like.

"He thinks there were real problems with the call."
