‘Finish your bracket,’ tweets @BarackObama; Fed-up citizens respond: ‘Finish your budget’

President Obama may want to urge Twitter to de-verify the @BarackObama account. You know, the totally independent Organizing for Action account that has nothing to do with the president. Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.

But for now, Twitter users can’t help but assume that @BarackObama’s tweets reflect Barack Obama’s ideas. After all, President Priorities did make time to fill out his NCAA bracket on ESPN before his trip to the Middle East. As Twitchy noted on Wednesday, it’s too bad the budget isn’t a bracket.

    “I’m shootin’ hoops today. Make sure it’s only pudgy, white guys, the photographer will be there.”

      Yeah, surprised they didn’t call you :-p

        I’m not in the “pudgy” demo anymore. I’m somewhere between rotund and inflated.

          Big boned?

            I’m too short. I should be 8’7″.

      Apparently, it is true that “white men can’t jump,” and – knowing that – Charlie McCarthy makes a point of only playing against short ones.

      Hoops are the only thing he shoots.

        You’re forgetting all those poor “skeets” up at Camp David.

        • Cool_Arrow

          Yay, and did he not form those pigeons from the clay?

        • Lady 12

          Pretty sure he never shot any.

        Plus cocaine up his nostrils.

    • Scott Anderson

      I bet he can’t play very well. I bet he’s horrible.

  • Billie Slash

    Mr. President, when they told you to be ‘ballsy’, this is not what they meant.

  • Scott Carroll

    “Alright, Mr.President we’re going to shoot one more. The Vice-President wandered onto the court during that last shot. Will somebody show him something shiny and keep him occupied? Ok Mr.President maybe in this one you could jump into the air and sorta contort your body like you’re in a Mary Poppins dance number. Yeah, like that. That’s perfect. It looks really dynamic in a liberal kind of way. Hey you! Fat guy! No! The other fat guy! No! The fat guy in the blue shirt! Yeah, you. Kinda jump at the President like you’re contesting his shot. Alright, places everyone! Aaaaand go!”

    • Shulen

      Love it!

  • SRVDisciple

    keeping that streak of never-working-a-day-in-your-life going, eh?

  • notenoughtime

    Oh, geez! Even with all the white guys around him to highlight his athleticism, he still looks like a guy you cannot throw a baseball from the pitcher’s mound over home plate to the catcher. Would like to know exactly how much time he spends on solving the country’s issues and in the Oval Office. Predict it is next to nothing!

  • JimMP

    The Bread and Circuses routine is startling to get stale. Obama reminds one more and more of the Emperor Nero every day.

  • therantinggeek

    Come on, Lefties…I’m just waiting to see what excuses you’ll come up with as you attempt to defend the man you voted into office. Twice.

  • golfmax13

    Pretty good leaping ability on the white guys. Oh, that’s right – can’t jump when you play the POTUS.

  • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

    That guy on the right got a full two inches off the ground, lol.

  • thetawake

    Hahahah! Obama’s jumping as high as he can and the guy in front of him is still on the ground! It is funny because he is so tiny. #TinyPresident 😀

    So not only does Oblamer surround himself with idiots to appear to be smartest one in room, he surrounds himself with chubby white guys on the court to look like a supreme athlete. Girly looking jump shot there. WNBA?

    • Barack Hussein Sharpton

      Wow! He actually has basketballs with his name on them. This guy is too much.

  • uselogic19

    Geez, please give me just one chance at swatting that pansy’s shot into the Rose Garden. Or maybe off his head into Lafayette Circle.

    • Barack Hussein Sharpton

      I used to like to swat the ball back into the guy’s face, which is while I only got about 10 minutes a game. Those fouls pile up too darn fast!

      Guarantee you that if I was on that court, Obama’s forehead would have had the word “Spalding” embedded into it.

  • lainer51

    Say it ain’t so….. No bike helmet or Mom Jeans???? Must have been photoshopped out….

    • $23629333

      They also “photoshopped out” the step ladder he was standing on.

  • Barack Hussein Sharpton

    Is Obama shooting a basketball, or is he just trying to push his ass into some dude’s face? My gaydar is on 11 looking at his body positioning.

  • David

    OBlamer’s joke on the American people continues. He is a lazy, arrogant, shiftless POS. There’s three words for the idiots out there that have bastardized the English language as we cannot use accurate adjectives to describe this so-called president.

  • RedSoloCup

    What else would we expect from a guy who hangs out with the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce.

  • http://www.absoluteintensity.com dennis reilly

    Dave was so right, Barack Obama never works, he just talks and eats, look at the scrubs he is playing basketball with so he can win

  • Joshua Pease

    I’d foul the hell out of him.
