For once let me say President Obama is getting a bad rap. In between shutting the White House to tourists and ogling California’s attorney general, he took to the basketball court during this year’s Easter Egg Roll and, according to official scorers, missed 20 of the 22 shots he attempted. Even more embarrassing, he was unguarded. Scores of adoring kids looked on. Yet there is no evidence he was on any Easter candy sugar high. He didn’t appear to be the least concerned about the crazy threats coming out of North Korea. The latest, ever lousier job numbers were still five days away. So what possible excuse did he have?
That one’s easy. Have you ever tried shooting baskets on a hard court in a dress shirt, dress slacks, and dress shoes, and, on top of that, with a heavy wristwatch strapped to your shooting hand? It can’t be done. End of discussion. I’m only surprised he smiled through the whole ordeal. A real B-baller would have called time and gone to the locker room to change into shorts and sneakers. Once again Mr. Obama was not up to the demands of his job.
MARCH CAME IN like a lamb and went out like a lamb. That was the good news of Global Warming! Also the most feeble of all modern economic recoveries continues. In the 45 months since the recession ended job creation has averaged 113,000 fewer jobs per month than in a normal recovery. President Barack Obama is right on target. This recovery has almost no carbon footprint whatsoever, actually almost no carbon! Well done, Mr. President, and now this ridiculous stone head has proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month.” His White House is organizing workshops to train the youths of the land on “how to budget responsibly.” As for the federal budget, it has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household.
