Fox Hides Fact Obama Throws Like Girl

From Fox, via YouTube:

Of course it is no surprise that Mr. Obama is a lefty.

Nor should we be too shocked to see that he throws like a girl. In fact, a girl who has never held a baseball.

(Even though we are constantly assured what an athlete Mr. Obama is.)

The real surprise here is that Fox seems to have purposefully positioned their camera so that the viewers could not see where Mr. Obama’s pitch went.

Whether the ball reaches the target, the catcher’s mitt, has long been the historic gauge of the success or failure of any President’s ceremonial pitches.

In fact, according to the Detroit Free Press, the ball bounced before it got to the plate. That is not good.

But the people watching on TV never got to see that, even though Fox had dozens of other cameras that could have easily covered that shot.

Did the Obama handlers ask Fox not to show where the ball went?

Was Fox gotten to?

Anyway, compare and contrast.

    Watch the guy driving the golf cart. He doesn’t want to even acknowledge Obama and only politely shakes his hand after it’s offered.

    • proreason says:

      I saw that too, Tucker. The cart driver doesn’t even look at The Moron and only shakes when forced. To have refused, would have ruined the guy’s life, so he did the smart thing.

  2. proreason says:

    Check out his sissy golf swing in my late post here:


    So far, he throws like a girl, swings like a girl, and bowls like a girl.

    Now, as an “all american”, “raised with midwest values” kind of guy, why is it that the only sport he is competant at is basketball?

    Kind of looks like his handlers concentrated too much on making sure he could play basketball.

      ProR, wait! You forgot about the clip from Ellen’s show! He also dances a bit daintily for a 6’3″ man, too. Find that clip.

    • proreason says:

      He dances just like Ellen:


      Bonus, he flails at a punching bag as well…..and actually strikes it!!

    • bronzeprofessor says:

      OMG, ProR, why did you have to post that dance clip? I feel so uncomfortable watching it, I’m turning red in embarrassment for the Commander in Chief.

      Personally I don’t expect a President to be ripplingly macho. BUT it’s embarrassing that The President’s managers have worked so strenuously to present him as a slab of breathtaking virility when he is, in fact, a tad bit girlish. If you turn the volume down on the Ellen clip you may think it shows two tall skinny lesbians dancing together at Pandora’s Box in NYC or something.

      I have to confess, when other teenage guys were doing football my mother forced me into the most bizarre slate of physical activities: weightlifting, ballet lessons, the rifle team, and tennis. With four three physical activities, I can’t deny that I got great physical training that lasted me for life, as evidenced by the fact that I made it into the Army at the age of 37. BUT if I am a military officer (as I will be one day), I won’t be so stupid as to make myself seem like a typical red-blooded macho blockhead. I wouldn’t volunteer to chop wood at a lumberjack convention, throw a football at SuperBowl half time, or try to throw a punch at a punching bag just before doing the boogey-woogey with a lankly lesbian tomboy. I don’t expect the Commander to be masculine in every way — he just has to have the manly common sense to carry himself with the dignity he knows he can handle. The golfing, pitching, bowling, and dancing routines are simply out of line, poor judgment, and embarrassing. Especially the punching bag on Ellen’s show.

    • RDubJr says:

      Too much credit is given to his basketball game..its weak also. He only has one hand..the left hand. He also needs to hit those weights like Bush did an a regular basis…with that size 36 suit.

    • navymom says:

      Throws like a girl! I take offence at that remark. I played ball for 30+ years and could throw farther and with more force that him until rotator cup surgery! Actually, I STILL can throw farther and with more force that that!! He throws like a wanna be! What else is he “pretending” to be, but isn’t? Oh, oh I know, intelligent, presidential, classy, etc.

    Mr. Limbaugh is discussing this as I type.

  4. Melly says:

    Listening to Rush as well. What would El Rushbo do without S & L ?
    “Throws like a girl.” Hmmmm – where did Rush get that from? ;-)

    Answer: El Stevo.

  5. conservativegirl says:

    He does throw like a girl and what’s with his geeky jeans and shoes? And while I’m at it, does he have to hug everyone he meets? He even hugs foreign dignitaries, on their home soil. Very poor decorum.

    I MISS GW – now there’s a real man.

  6. squidman says:

    This illustrates something that BO and W have in common. With pretty much anything that the MSM says about them, you can rest assured the exact opposite is true.

  7. proreason says:

    Since here at S&L we always scrupulously give The Moron credit when credit is due, and the benefit of the doubt, I’m reporting the discovery that The Idiot had to wear a bulky bullet-proof vest (and perhaps some bullet protection on the legs as well. A wise precaution for a criminal who is dismantling our country, btw.

    This may help explain why the egomaniac threw like an 8 year-old girl, and may also explain the mommy jeans.

    But frankly, imho, it’s more likely he is a spastic nerd.

    • Pro, I would say that it was likely with the bullet protection, but he had too much range of motion to be able to throw with all that stuff on (don’t worry, I know you were kidding). I spent my baseball years as a catcher, so I know how hard it is to throw with gear on, and Obalmy doesn’t look like he has any gear on.

      Anyways, I would call his pitch a balk. He took his foot off the rubber a few times, and I’m pretty sure that means a balk. W, on the other hand, looks like he didn’t have to put any effort forth at all to get his pitch over the plate.

  8. Confucius says:

    Here is a videoclip showing Obama’s sissified, around-the-moon pitch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss5Mn1amhfk. The pitch is made at 00:18.

    The clip also shows Obama’s pitch not clearing the plate. The catcher does, however, appear to catch the ball before it hitting the ground. But that is only because the catcher is standing on the front edge of the plate and steps forward to intercept the ball. (In other words, affirmative action.)

    Later in the clip, Obama is shown bowling. Unbelievably, his skills are even worse.

    Based on these videos, I have to say I don’t think Obama is either black or white. I think he’s Asian. (Maybe even Muslim.)

    • jobeth says:

      I don’t know…Japan has a pretty good bunch of baseball players. I vote for muslim

    • bronzeprofessor says:

      I’m with Jobeth! I don’t know what Asians you hang out with, but the Asians I know either (1) know how to throw a baseball like a man or (2) know better than to volunteer to throw the first ball in an All-Star Game, with 50,000 people watching you and the cameras glaring on you.

      Me personally — I don’t have a good baseball throw, so I would’ve never signed up for such embarrassment. That’s a question of “good judgment”. Kind of like knowing not to brag about being a “wise latina” when you plan to become a SCOTUS justice one day,..

    • Confucius says:

      Hi jobeth and bronzeprofessor!

      Growing up, my parents never let us get close to anything Japanese. Something to do with their invading China.

      I’m also not a big sports fan. Consequently, the only famous Asian athletes I know of are Yao Ming, Michelle Wie, Michael Chang, Michelle Kwan and Tiger Woods.

      Perhaps I should I have said “Chinese” instead of “Asian.” Chinese aren’t good at throwing or rolling balls. We’re better at hitting them back and forth, particularly over a net. :-)

  9. Liberals Demise says:

    Talking about throwing like a sissy ……………. he’s a squatter, too!

  10. canary says:

    You could hear some booing Obama.

    • bronzeprofessor says:

      I noticed that too, Canary. Do you think it means we’ve passed a certain milestone now? The booing was pretty palpable, and it felt like the cheering people were trying awfully hard to cover up the jeers. Maybe times are a changin’.

    • Howard Roark says:

      Bp, I wish we could rest secure that the booing was all about portraying an overall sentiment concerning Barry’s political popularity at 6 months into office. (Gawd, how I wish we could.)

      But I am given pause because of the insightful observation from Rush today that Barry’s handlers wanted to shield him from this potential outcome, therefore they “beat the boo’ers to the punch” by adorning him in a White Sox jacket, which was sure to bring at least some amount of boo’s by the crowd. They then have plausable deniability when speculators say, “His popularity must be waning, look how the crowd reacted to him at the All Star game.”

  11. Robert Nesbitt says:

    Worse than a girl, He throws like a Kenyan !

  12. Robert Nesbitt says:

    Also, check out G. W.’s first pitch after 9/11 wearing all the same protection !!

  13. Hey! I’m left handed!! and never felt in such poor company about it… sigh..

    • Confucius says:

      I’m with you Mr. Gillman. We southpaws suffer so much every day.

      If we weren’t so disenfranchised, we’d might get a bailout.

      Can I get an “Amen!”?

  14. morninggloryseed says:

    Gosh I miss voting for that man. (Bush)

  15. BigOil says:

    Back in the 80’s, we used to call the jeans our man-child president is wearing ‘floods’.

  16. Haliburtus says:

    What a “wuss” we have wrecking our great country.

  17. 1republicanscientist says:

    If only his teleprompter could have thrown for Him

  18. U NO HOO says:

    One could reasonably conclude that Obama should have designated a pitching tsar.

  19. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    Pretty pathetic pitching. Do you suppose he can handle the recoil from firing a Daisy Red Rider BB gun?

  20. BigOil says:

    There may be a valid reason Obama can’t throw a baseball. Many of us were taught by our fathers how to toss a baseball when we were kids. Obama’s dad was a little preoccupied populating Africa.
