Hoopster In Chief Has Own Image on Ball

Using a special basketball festooned with his own image, President Obama shot some hoop today with former NBA players, Harlem Globetrotters and kids attending the White House Easter Egg Hunt. The balls with the presidential face were brought for by [sic] the NBA players who came to the event, White House officials said.

The White House seems to be stammering trying to explain this.

The “Shoot for Strength” activity took place on the White House basketball court, where Daryll “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins and legendary shooting guard Mitch Richmond joined Globetrotters’ Herb Lang, Fatima Maddox, Jacob Tucker and Wun Versher to conduct drills with kids.

The drill consisted of the kids doing pushups every time the professional players or President Obama scored.

Isn’t that a little weird. Who dreamt that up?

In his first three shots he went 0 for 3. He missed seven shots before sinking his first.

This seems to be his pattern in all things.

The kids switched with the shooters, and the president dropped to the ground to do some pushups “Somebody saw me cheating on my pushups,” the president joked.

What a surprise.

He then moved on to tennis with Chris Evert. The tennis balls did not have his image on them

Not yet. Though we have even had Obama’s image on the American flag, of course.

But soon we will live in a happy land like North Korea or the good old Soviet Union where the leader’s image is everywhere.

    I cannot say here what I know must be said.

    What with his goons, thugs and enforcers lurking behind every keyboard. And able to detain, arrest, charge and put away someone who “offends”.

    I will say this though, since they’re clearly trying to egg us into a violent response, they’ve forgotten THE CRITICAL LESSON of Americans ….

    … when minorities riot, they burn down their neighborhoods.

    When Joe the Plumber gets pushed to that point, Joe The Plumbers burn down everything.

    Where else throughout world history have tin-horn dictators leaders plastered their image everywhere in cult-like fashion? Let me think, I’m sure it will come to me…

    Obama White House displaying his own image on the Christian holiday of Our Lord Rising as Savior, is a form of communism tactic Castro used in Cuba. Pray to Obama before you shoot the hoop.

    And the push-ups are to brainwash children that the military must be put in action on Christian holidays.
    You have to hit your target to honor Obama or you will be punished.

    How do they keep those basketballs from going flat? Doesn’t all the air come swoooooshing out of nerobama’s mouth?

    Can we get somebody to put some ears on those balls? Of course they wouldn’t function properly, but wouldn’t that be more appropropriate?
