Obama Shoots A Lot Of Bricks As POTUS (Video)

On his show, Tuesday, Rush Limbaugh pointed out that it was kind of funny that some in the media expected Obama to be better in basketball than he apparently is based on his mortifying display at Monday’s White House Easter Egg Roll.

Transcript via the Rush Limbaugh Show:

The news media is still shaking their collective heads over Obama missing all but two of his 22 free throws on the White House basketball court during the Easter Egg Roll on Monday.  Let me ask a question.  Isn’t it a little racist to assume that Obama would be good at basketball?  I mean, where is this lofty expectation of Obama on the basketball court coming from?  We have it at his word.  He tells us that he’s good at basketball, and we already know from others who’ve worked with him that he thinks he’s an expert at everything.  Maybe he thinks he’s excellent at free-throw shooting.  Anyway, they’re very, very concerned about this.

Needling the media, he suggested that it was a little racist of them to assume a black man would be good at basketball:

But isn’t it a little racist to assume here that he’d be good at basketball?  Why does anybody think he would be good at it?  Because he spends a lot of time playing it?  Well, he’s not good at golf.  This we know.

I suggest you turn down the volume on the second video and watch Obama shoot bricks while listening to Rush’s commentary.

I actually disagree with Rush on this one. There’s a larger lessen to be gleaned, here, in terms of how the media regards this president.

Notice how they made excuses for him – Poor Obama (The Choke-in-Chief) –  he choked in front of the kiddies.

ROSE:  You know, he’s got game.  It must drive him crazy —

KING:  I would think so, too.

ROSE:  — to miss that many shots.

O’DONNELL:  I know.  What did he hit, two out of 22 shots there in front of everybody?

ROSE:  What did you call him, commander-in-choke?

O’DONNELL:  No, the choke-in-chief.  He went from the commander-in-chief to the choke-in-chief, yeah.

KING:  Well, maybe, guys, he just didn’t want to show up the children.

O’DONNELL:  Yeah.

ROSE:  Maybe not.

KING:  Or was he just having a bad day.

Yes, he was having a “bad day.” It couldn’t possibly be that the guy who warmed the bench as a non-starter in high school, (and blamed his failure on “structural racism”) might happen to suck at the game.

I see this whole episode as a microcosm of how the MSM has treated Obama throughout his entire tenure as president.

Obama has a lot of bad days that (taking their cues from Obama) the media blames on anything  other than his own personal suckage.

Obama bricks the economy? It’s Bush’s fault. Or the Republicans’ fault. Or it’s just Obama’s bad luck. Obama bricks foreign policy? – it’s Bush’s fault, or the Republicans’ fault. Or it’s just Obama’s bad luck, again. Obama bricks a deal with the Republicans?  He was the adult in the room who didn’t want to show up the children. Or he was having a bad day.

Ben Carson: White Libs ‘The Most Racist People There Are’ (Audio)

I’ve been saying this for years. Nobody can compare to progressives when it comes to vile racist attacks as any black conservative could tell you. White libs are projecting mightily when they accuse conservatives of being racist.

Appearing on the Mark Levin radio show, yesterday, Dr. Ben Carson, blasted his critics for heat he’s taken since his speech at the national prayer breakfast.  Calling his white liberal detractors “the most racist people there are”, he said, “they want to shut us up completely, and that’s why the attacks against me have been so vicious. I represent an existential threat to them. They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me, they can’t find anything else to delegitimize me, so they take my words, misinterpret them, and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot.”

Via The Hill:

Levin said Carson was being targeted for his race.

“You’re attacked also in many respects because of your race,” Levin said. “You’re not supposed to talk like this, and a lot of white liberals just don’t like it, do they?”

“They’re the most racist people there are because they put you in a little category, a box,” Carson responded. “How could you dare come off the plantation?”

Video: Faith and Freedom’s Ralph Reed Calls on Obama To Condemn Easter Pastor’s “Cheap”, “Ahistorical”, “Political” Rant

Ralph Reed, the Founder and Chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition was invited onto The Greta Van Susteren Show, last night  to comment on Obama’s Pastor’s obnoxious and inappropriate Easter sermon. Rev. Luis Leon used part of his sermon to go after Christian conservatives, saying:

“It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back … for blacks to be back in the back of the bus, for women to be back in the kitchen, for gays to be in the closet, and for immigrants to be back on their side of the border.”

While Greta Van Sustern thought it was obvious that there was no collusion between the pastor and the president on the message,  Reed thought it seemed more than a little coincidental that the message so seamlessly meshed with the organized left’s PR message as issues like gay marriage, welfare reform are being discussed in the public sphere.

“It doesn’t seem coincidental to me that this happened the same week of the arguing of the marriage cases before the Supreme Court because it’s part of this drumbeat that we’re hearing…throughout our culture and especially among the opinion elites: If you support traditional marriage – you’re a bigot. If you believe in reforming welfare, you’re a racist. If you believe in the importance of the family as the most important department of health, education and and welfare ever conceived, then you want to put women back in the kitchen,” he said.

And it shows the left’s desperation, he continued, because they “can’t win based on facts in the argument so they engage in smearing, and cat-calling and drawing ugly caricatures.”

Noting that just last week, Don Young of Alaska was  immediately condemned by Speaker Boehner and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus for using a term that was derogatory toward Hispanics, he said, “today, the White House refused to distance the president from these remarks, so I call on the president tonight, not just through a spokesman, but through a statement issued over his name, to make it clear that not only does he not agree with them, but he finds them deeply offensive.”

Asked if he really thought the president should address the issue, Reed answered, “he’s being asked about it, and he’s going to continue to be asked about it… I think it’s entirely appropriate and I think it would be well within his responsibilities to say listen, I had nothing to do with this, I was just there worshiping with my family, and I don’t think most Americans agree with it.”

As for the Pastor, Reed thought he should apologize for using an Easter Sunday sermon as a platform to make cheap political attacks on other Americans.

I asked Reed on Twitter if he thought Obama would really issue a statement condemning the Pastor. He responded, “not holding my breath.”
