Barack Obama: Plato Of The Pigskin

Obama Attempting To Throw A FootballI want to hear Barack Obama pontificate about sports as much as I want to hear Paris Hilton opine about world history. Sadly, my opinion doesn’t matter, since the MSM wants to hear this windbag president talk about anything and everything.

After this media sit-down, expect the Obama administration to ban football…

In an interview with the New Republic, President Barack Obama is asked, “I’m wondering if you, as a fan, take less pleasure in watching football, knowing the impact that the game takes on its players.”

“I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you if I had a son, I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play football,” says the president. “And I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence. In some cases, that may make it a little bit less exciting, but it will be a whole lot better for the players, and those of us who are fans maybe won’t have to examine our consciences quite as much.”

Um, I don’t examine my conscience at all. These guys are getting paid millions of dollars to play a kid’s game. They knew the risks, and they signed up, anyway. Similarly, I wouldn’t want someone to feel sorry for me if I was killed in the line of duty. I knew there was always that risk, and I took it. It would be nice if “our betters” would stop treating people like infants.

It is interesting, however, that Obama is all for putting women in combat, but wouldn’t let his pretend son – let’s call him “Trayvon” – play football.

I mean, good grief, people called George H. W. Bush a “wimp,” but this guy is an out-and-out puss-aah.

    Yep, zero mommy pants is some real tough guy. You know he did lead DEVGRU to get binny laden. Yep, fast roped down with the boys, used his HK 416, ooops I mean his O/U 410g (to go skeet shootin’ with too at CD, where are the press pool pics zero??), because zero is such a badass he doesn’t need an “assault weapon” to do hostage takedowns. Unless of course a 410 could be used as an assault weapon??? Yep, zero badass who was a benchwarmer basketballer, is now going to pontificate about football, something he knows nothing about (par for the course, since he sucks at golf too). Judging by his picture, referenced here, he can probably throw about 20-25 yards tops.

    Good plan let’s ban football and leave all the players to live out their lives in the inner-city where they can live in government provided housing and receive government assistance. That will be far safer since there is no violence in the utopian society housing projects.

    So besides bearing a passing resemblance to Trayvon Martin, Hussein Dolt’s fictitous son would not be on the football team, either.

    If football is too risky for his nonexistent son, I guess his daughters signing up for a combat-arms MOS in the Army is out of the question, even tho’ its no longer verboten by the Pentagon

      That’s funny, zero’s daughters signing up for the military, an institution he despises with his whole being. His daughters signing up to be 11Bravos… Of course since women can now be possibly in combat arms, they need to register for the draft, so they can get their student loans. I had to do it almost 30 years ago, so should all the womyns folk now. Since I am a bitter, clinger, clutching my bible and bang bangs.
