Obama Won’t Let His Imaginary Son Play Football

More from Obama’s historic interview in the New Yorker, via Breitbart:

Breaking: Obama’s hypothetical son not allowed to play football

by John Hayward | 20 Jan 2014

Even as sports fans gear up for a big playoff day, an interview with David Remnick of the New Yorker tells us that Barack Obama wants everyone to know that his hypothetical son – one of the most famous imaginary people in the world, having previously played a role in the Trayvon Martin case – would not be permitted to play football:

… Obama was sitting at his desk watching the Miami Dolphins–Carolina Panthers game. Slender as a switch, he wore a white shirt and dark slacks; a flight jacket was slung over his high-backed leather chair. As we talked, mainly about the Middle East, his eyes wandered to the game. Reports of multiple concussions and retired players with early-onset dementia had been in the news all year, and so, before I left, I asked if he didn’t feel at all ambivalent about following the sport. He didn’t.

“I would not let my son play pro football,” he conceded. “But, I mean, you wrote a lot about boxing, right? We’re sort of in the same realm.”

So Obama has to follow football because he is a sports journalist like the New Yorker reporter? He’s being paid to follow it?

… “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor,” he went on. “These guys, they know what they’re doing. They know what they’re buying into. It is no longer a secret. It’s sort of the feeling I have about smokers, you know?”

This is quite a claim in view of the current and future lawsuits. But even so, why do we still have warning labels on cigarettes?

Obama chewed furtively on a piece of Nicorette. His carriage and the cadence of his conversation are usually so measured that I was thrown by the lingering habit, the trace of indiscipline. “I’m not a purist,” he said.

Really? What about all of the ways in which smokers are punished under Obama-Care and elsewhere by the federal government?

So… football is kind of like smoking, but it’s okay if you know what you’re doing, which Obama’s imaginary son presumably would not. Incidentally, in the very same interview, Obama let the world know that smoking is awful, especially when it’s pot, except drinking alcohol is worse, or maybe just as bad, so we probably shouldn’t legalize pot, except maybe we should, because the existing laws against it are racist and classist…

Like all the other laws imposed by ‘the man.’

[Resuming quoting from the New Yorker]

When I asked Obama about another area of shifting public opinion—the legalization of marijuana—he seemed even less eager to evolve with any dispatch and get in front of the issue. “As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”

Is it less dangerous? I asked…

Less dangerous, he said, “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer. It’s not something I encourage, and I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy.” …

Accordingly, he said of the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington that “it’s important for it to go forward because it’s important for society not to have a situation in which a large portion of people have at one time or another broken the law and only a select few get punished.”

Really? Because in every other respect, the Obama model of government is all about having a bottomless sucking morass of hyper-complicated laws that elites like him can selectively enforce or ignore, making virtually every American a presumptive criminal who can be prosecuted whenever the super-State finds it convenient to do so.

How true. For instance, how many illegal aliens will be punished under Obama? Only a select few.

    John Hayward is a writer?

    His works reads like a high school sophomore’s attempts to make a boring event more colorful and interesting through labored word-choice. “Slender as a switch”? Come ON, who the *&%# writes like that?

    Forced uses of sibilance, alliteration, all the marketing tools of poor writing to cover for an uninteresting subject (Obama and his personality) make the “writer” guilty of literary malpractice.

    Apparently he took his creative writing teacher seriously when he/she told him in class, “Don’t just say, ‘he sat behind a wet rock’, no….you have to bring life to it…and get the reader to want to be there. Instead say, ‘He leaned up against the fortress of stone he had chosen, as if to use it as a castle to defend his position, the morning dew slowly trickling down the side providing relief for his overheated head.”

    That kind of stuff has made me take a recently purchased book and toss it right into the trash. And I dare say the garbage I just wrote is 1000 times better than what Hayward penned. His mental illustrations are labored and forced. It’s obvious that he really wants to worship the guy but his (possibly) better half of his brain is witnessing an arrogant boob, intent on appearing stoic and pensive, when in reality, the man-child hasn’t had a wise thought in his life and is as pedestrian as any gang member.

    This is not writing. It’s an exercise labored invectives and literary tools that should be used sparingly and not like you got them in a Cracker Jack box.

    Steve’s dissection of the subject is, as usual, spot on.

    Knowing the Obamas they would raise a ‘son’ clad in panties and a knit cap. The idea of an Obama kid standing up to a Richard Sherman of Seattle Seahawks is laughable. Or, Sean Lee. Or, Golden Tate. The Seahawks thrive on vicious, arrogant, vile brutality that has no place in the Game and ..

    .. oh, got sidetracked. Yeah. Obama. Son. Not bloody likely. I doubt his ‘girls’ are really his.
