Pity poor President Barack Obama.
Being inexperienced and smitten with exceedingly poor judgment, and even weaker management skills, is a bummer when so much is expected of the one who is supposed to be the most powerful man on the planet.
Among the many challenges facing BHO, the following issues make the daily routine in the Oval Office sheer drudgery for an in-over-his-head community organizer:
- Budget and deficit crisis,
- Threat of government shutdown,
- Nuclear meltdown in Japan,
- Conflicts in Libya, elsewhere in Middle East, Africa, and
- Soaring gasoline prices, possible threat to economic recovery.
Despite having all of that on his plate, the president is voluntarily taking on new and important responsibilities.
Specifically, Barack Obama is taking time out from his intense schedule to attend to a subject near and dear to the American people: College basketball.
Also known as “March Madness,” America’s obsession with college hoops slips into mindless hysteria this time of year, afflicting millions of Americans, apparently including Barack Obama, allegedly.
Notwithstanding his legendary power and fame, President Obama is taping his picks for the NCAA finals today, and they’ll be revealed tomorrow on ESPN.
Given the complexity and intensity of the issues facing the world and our nation, one wonders why Obama does not delegate March Madness to a subordinate, like goofy Vice-President Biden?
The answer: March Madness is about the only happening that is within this president’s capabilities!
