Japan Melts, Libya Burns, Deficit Grows … and Obama Fills Out NCAA Bracket

The above is the headline from FoxNation.

Mike Flynn from Big Government writes:

Japan is suffering from a natural disaster that threatens to turn into an existential crisis. Colonel Q-ball has unleashed a blistering assault on pro-democracy rebel forces. Large swaths of the Middle East are in turmoil. The federal government is bleeding red ink, with absolutely no end in site … But, what’s all that against a little MARCH MADNESS! … Barack Obama will take some time to fill out his bracket for the upcoming NCAA College Basketball tournament.

Fred Thompson expands on this:

The difference between President Obama and the rest of us is that we aren’t calling a meeting of the White House communications staff to rehearse our bracket unveils for a national TV audience while ducking national-security issues, budget negotiations, Social Security reform meetings … you get the idea (italics mine).

Can you believe it? Yes-of course you can-after all we’re talking about Barack Obama. Maybe we should call him Bracket Barack.

Bracket Barack was also slam dunked by Governor Scott Walker:

I’m sure the President knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay. And I’m sure the President knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts.  Furthermore, I’m sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.  I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.

And believe or not I actually saw some mindless, robot of an idiot a couple of weeks ago with a bumper sticker on his car that read . . . wait for it . . . Obama in 2012. Oui Vey!
