Well, to be fair, the bar patron didn't accept his basketball challenge.

I'm trying to imagine how the Secret Service would have responded if Obama had accepted the challenge.

I'm also trying to imagine the Fox News headlines this morning if he had accepted the challenge and lost. Or, possibly even worse, won.
 
2012-07-06 10:48:42 AM  
He did however, offer to have the patron wrestled to the ground by Secret Service agents
 
2012-07-06 10:54:55 AM  
Obama spent about an hour at the pub, talking with people and drinking a Bud Light.

He described it as "Hops. Wet. Good."
 
2012-07-06 10:58:54 AM  
Chuck Norris wouldn't have refused to arm-wrestle.

First demand a recount!

Oh wait, that's a D-Thing.

But really, I don't see the Secret Service letting either of those things happen. Not without a major back ground check. And if they do that, people will just claim it was fixed. Really and truly there is no way for Obama to win this.

I challenged Mitt Romney to an arm wrestling match for my vote, and he countered with a challenge to pit his horse ballerina against mine.
 
2012-07-06 11:54:00 AM  
Is arm wrestling a tax or a penalty or what?
 
2012-07-06 11:59:11 AM  
Obama accepts and wins: OMG! Is there nothing he won't do to show up jus' plain folks?

Obama accepts and loses: Putin is slapping a bear around and laughing at America right now!

Obama cowardly wormed his way out of what real Americans do every day of the week. Shame on you Mr. Hussein, shame on you.

Well, yeah. The GOP machine will say it's evil/bad/unpresidential/wrong no matter what it is Obama's doing.

I feel bad for you Americans, I really do. I mean, who are you going to vote for? You're rapidly approaching the Canadian way of "vote for the guy you perceive to be the least incompetent on election day".

I think your best bet is to vote for an inanimate carbon rod come November.

The report that, after winning, Obama then proceeded to cram the patron's arm down the patron's own throat may have also been slightly exagerrated.

rudemix: President has semi-jovial interaction like most people have dozens of times a day, news at 11ty!


Yes I love how this story made top news. So important for the election.
 
2012-07-06 12:57:35 PM  
Yeah, for the record, I'm not voting for him, but there was no easy win for this thing. No matter what he says/does/tries he would have been screwed.

So good for him for bringing race into it by challenging him to a basketball game. Got to keep the electorate informed that he's still half black.

Or something.
 
2012-07-06 12:57:46 PM  
If the President had been a true God-fearing Christian man, he would have sucker-punched the patron, lifted the guy up by the belt and whispered in his ear "If I hear you didn't vote for me this November, I'm gonna come back here, grab your buddy over there by his ankles, and beat you to death with him."

Obviously, we have a secret Muslin leading this country. Perhaps a French secret Muslin.

Just like the November Election.

Personally, I think it's hysterical that the guy made that offer. I also think it's funny that the president offered to play hoops for the vote.

But since it's the politics tab I offer you this comment from a previous Fark thread:

That's Mitt Romney, and his "child of privilege" mentality in a nutshell. Suck at something? Don't try to get better, just rig the game so the rules favor you from now on

When Barry's poll numbers hit 30% come October, he will run screaming back to this bar and beg the guy for another chance.

Mitt Romney delined to recite the 3 Laws of Robotics; he lost my vote.

I like the way you think. I may actually do a write in.
 
2012-07-06 01:01:35 PM  
I think it would have been awesome for him to do it. It would have connected him to the people. The average Joe respects a guy who'll sit down for an arm wrestle. I understand him refusing, but it would have been great.
