Obama Throws Like A....

After watching President Obama throw out the first pitch for the MLB Allstar game last night, I can safely say "Baseball-Barry" throws as well as a 6 year old ....soccer player.

Wow... you would think He might have taken the time to maybe have a baseball player or coach come in and teach Him the basic throwing mechanics before taking the mound in front of millions of baseball fans... but getting His "pitching and catching" tips from Barney Franks and Stuart Smalley was obviously a big, big mistake.



Yes... those were BOO's you were hearing... word is that the biggest cheer came when Dub-ya (throws like a baseball guy) came on the big screen during the pregame.

The Boo's were probably from angry White Sox fans upset that "the One" couldn't even pronounce the name of his so-called "favorite" team's stadium right.

There was a video, link (they showed it on tv too) of Presidents Obama, Bush43, Clinton, Bush 41 and Jihhah Cahtahh called "All-Stars Among Us". When Bushy's turn came... the crowd cheered bigtime.

I heard it on tv, but wasn't sure that was why they were cheering.

I remember when W threw out the ... first pitch in the first game following the Islamic attacks of Sept 11 2001. For some reason it was important for the President to throw a damn strike... and he confidently did and the crowd went wild.

It was a moment where sports and life came together and a moment I won't forget.

but I am not impressed that the President of our nation, who himself is FROM CHICAGO, can't pronounce the name of the park correctly!!!

Arrggh!!! I am willing to be that my dad's brothers and sisters are hating him right now (if they didn't already and if they even bothered to see that interview on the news...the latter of which i doubt)

Makes ya wonder just how much of a "White Sox" fan he really is and how much is image making pandering BS...

If you recall, (going on a Bush rant) our previous President had a background in baseball and had even been a part owner in a team... yet when he went to games he usually wore a MLB jacket or the home team colors or simply a neutral shirt showing respect for the other teams and not picking favorites or promoting his team... you know, being Presidential.

I do miss the days when the adults were in charge...
