Too bad the budget isn’t an NCAA bracket: President Priorities makes Final Four picks

In an exclusive interview with ESPN, Obama revealed his Final Four picks. Or as ESPN calls it, “Barack-etology.” You know, ’cause there’s nothing else going on.

Indeed you did:

Just like Lincoln!

Will there be participation ribbons for the teams Obama didn’t pick?

You didn’t pick that.

Many Twitter users are wondering if maybe, just maybe, there aren’t other concerns the president should be addressing.

Others have just had enough of President Boyfriend.

Silver lining?

Here’s an idea:

  • Steve_J

    Just like the rest of his administration to this point, frivolous and pointless.

  • DefCon99

    If Romney had won, ESPN still would have gone with BHO.

    • WingedBishop

      And SI still would have ranked BHO among the most powerful people in sports.

    Benghazi and Budgets. no biggie! Bracket – BIGGIE!

    • V the K

      Big Bird – Biggie. Birth Control – Biggie. ‘Bortions – Biggie.

  • ClinkinKY

    Screw the NCAA. I want to know what he thinks about the important issues. You know, like who’s going to win “American Idol”.

  • tredglx

    I don’t know about you all, but I feel so much better knowing that the ‘president’ has handled the imposing responsibility that is completing his March Madness brackets. Such important business simply cannot be put off. Trivial matters, like sequestration, budget, and the drive for crushing Second Amendment rights can wait for another day – it’s time for basketball.

  • TugboatPhil

    Now on to more important matters, like scoring some serious hash in Israel. Choom trumps the brackets.

    • Joseph A White

      Took the words right out of my mouth, Phil!!! 😉

      Given a choice between a joint and Reggie Love, which might he choose?

      • TugboatPhil

        Well, with Reggie, he could have both.

      • TugboatPhil

        Well, with Reggie, he could have both.

  • arttie

    This is why he is the most powerful sports figure, expect a drone attack if you are responsible for screwing up his brackets. Commander in vacuousness.

  • HARP2

    Bracket this Barry.

      In his own inimitable way – as he fiddles with his bracket – Charlie McCarthy is giving us the middle finger. The same is true of all his vacations and golf games. The only thing better – for him – than the fact that he’s angering the millions of Americans who oppose him and his agenda, is the fact that those Americans are powerless to do anything.

        If only we at least had elections where people could vote for someone els… Oh, sorry.

  • therantinggeek

    The picture in Jake Vanover’s tweet says it all.

  • arttie

    It is hard work. He told Barbara Walters he is lazy. This is more than we should expect.

  • Joseph A White

    When are he and Moochelle gonna be on “Dancing With The Stars”??? The rat-eared wonder and the Buick Butted Wookie ought to make a fine sight on that show.

  • Mister A

    We’re constantly told about how he’s “always on the job” and “focused like a laser.” It’s just that he’d rather show us that he’s not.

    • 3seven77

      Words. Just words.

  • TocksNedlog

    Hey Mr. President, would you like to show some REAL leadership? If so, then I have a couple of suggestions for you:
    1) Finance the White House Easter Egg Roll out of your own pocket; as you keep reminding us, you rich folk need to contribute more.
    2) Conduct a White House tour — no VIPs, just whomever happens to show up that day — personally, yourself.

  • rogueco

    Whew! I’m very excited to see the sequester didn’t gut Government access to dry-erase markers.

    • Marianne

      The Administration had some flexibility as to how to apply those unspeakably ruthless and horrendously austere “cuts” required by the sequester. The dry-erase markers were saved from the cuts, and the White House tours were not.

  • BigTBoom

    Obama’s Final Four (issues he doesn’t know how to handle): Benghazi, Israel, Debt/Deficit and Energy

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    Who does he blame when his picks #Fail? This guy is seriously deranged.

    • oconnellc

      Dude. Seriously. her durr

  • LibLieExposer

    Sequester the NCAA. Who cares about a bunch of future felons running up and down a court dribbling a ball?

  • IronButterfly

    This morning on ESPN President Obama gave a detailed explanation of what occurred and the movements of embassy personnel on the night of the Benghazi attack….. uuuhh, oh, wait, no he was filling out the 2013 NCAA basketball tournament bracket. Well maybe next year.

    Once again, we see Charlie McCarthy fiddling with his “Presidential Bracket,”* while millions of Americans** are burning with anger and frustration; aghast that the man supposedly in charge is too happy simply to “be” POTUS, and not at all interested in the associated responsibility.

    If Jed Clampett were with us today, you know what he would say: “pitiful.”

    (* as depicted in my avatar)

    (** those people gainfully employed and contributing far more to the public treasury than they derive from it, and also those people unemployed and hopeful of finding gainful employment)

    ESPN thinks asz kissing is a sport and demands it be at the next Olympics!

    Hail Obama!
