I was kinda expecting Beck to surprise since they decided to run the side-by-side, but then when Beck had to talk for three minutes straight before taking a shot while holding the ball with both hands, I knew he was kinda be worse.

Obama would beat Beck one-on-one 10 out of 10 times.

I LOL'ed when Obama bricked that layup, though.

And at the Blaze Easter Egg Roll Beck always wins and turns around and shouts, "In your face, b*tches!"

He's a class act.

Big difference is that 100 years from now, no one will no who the fark Glenn Beck was.
 
2013-04-11 09:24:14 AM  
After The Daily Show from the other day, I really was hoping someone had made a pic of Obama laying bricks with the caption "2/10 could not hit", but I couldn't find a publicly funded meme generator to do it for me.
 
2013-04-11 09:35:17 AM  
I love how 0bama asked for a new ball after he missed the first half dozen shots.
That was funny.

Part of me would be angrier if the Prez's game didn't have a little rust on it.

How odd. I though Glenn Beck was better at getting other people to shoot, like that Tides Foundation fellow.

I know this guy on Facebook who is obsessed with Fartblongo sucking at basketball.  In his world, the Lamestream LSM Stream Media has been shoving Obama's Jordan like talents down our throats for years, all part of their ceaseless cheerleading for their hand-selected socialist overlord.

That he sucks at basketball is proof Zerobummer is a fraud at everything.  His failure was not reported by the Gaystream GSM Stream Media, but rather revealed by blogger patriots who demanded the truth be told, and expose the emporor as wearing no clothes.  If AllBrickos had made 20 shots in a row, it would have been the top story on NBC and CBS for a month.  Prove to me that it wouldn't be? Exactly, you can't because you know it's true.

Luckily for Obama, his attempts to connect to the African-American community by portraying Treyvon Martin as kin were more successful than his street hoops approach.

Two things:

1) People really get butthurt about the president's basketball skills? It's a freaking game. Do these jackoffs really expect him to be Michael Jordan? Is that expectation a mild form or racism?

2) You can always unsubscribe from people's facebook feeds. I have found that it can make Thanksgiving a whole lot less stressful.

Lots of people never moved behind the high school jocks rule mentality. It is why they loved bush.

Trick question. Beck doesn't play basketball because no one will acknowledge he came up with the idea.

On one hand, people shouldn't get butthurt about it.  On the other hand, it should never be on CBS/CNN/whatever in the first place unless they're doing one of those personal health fluff pieces and want an example for how to stay in shape when you're older.

What irks Beck, he explained, is that Obama "can't admit he sucks at anything."
"He just cannot admit that he's not the world's greatest at everything," Beck said.


Yea, I remember all those times Obama said that he's the world's greatest about all those things. Mmmhmm. Yup.

Reminds me of the skeet-shooting "controversy."

Obama: "I picked up skeet shooting a few years ago.  I've only done it a few times, but I enjoyed it."
Teabaggers: "BULLSHIAT!"
Obama: "Okay, here's a picture from my last outing."
Teabaggers: "LOL, HIS STANCE IS WORSE THAN PROFESSIONAL SKEET SHOOTERS!  FAKE!"
 
2013-04-11 11:14:03 AM  
Of course, the professional far-right outrage squads would be just as angry if Obama was hitting fadeaway three-pointers while shooting righty.

"ZOMG! MAYBE HE SHOULD SPEND SOME TIME PRESIDENTING INSTEAD OF PLAYING THE SPORT THAT, YOU KNOW, THOSE PEOPLE PLAY."

"He just cannot admit that he's not the world's greatest at everything," Beck said.

"I bowled a 129," he told Leno.

"That's very good, Mr. President," Leno said sarcastically.

But then came the foot-in-mouth moment: "It's likeSpecial Olympics or something," the president said.

The whole bowling kerfluffle was better and got conservatives into a PC outrage over the Special Olympics comment.

Glenn Beck is physically incapable of doing ANYTHING if he doesn't have a little monologue first.

Seriously.  Google/YouTube some of past shows when he's going to have a guest on. He ALWAYS prefaces his introductions with a little speech about his favorite subject; Glenn Beck.

Hell, it probably takes him two hours just to go to the bathroom.

Enough with the racism, it's not helping.


That said, I'd rather play ball with Barry any day than the doughy crybaby.  He'd be sweating doughnuts in about 2 minutes.  Also, it must be tough to move around the court with your pockets full of European gold coins.

The only different being Bush was judged on his actions. Obama is being judged on something he's never claimed, amongst other ridiculous hyperbole. That's why ODD is a rank 4 personality disorder, vs say something like histrionic which is 2-3.

Ehh, I'm no fan of Bush, but there were plenty of crazies blaming him for just about everything under the sun.  Also, I miss hearing how he was an idiot simpleton and also an evil genius. Kind of like how Obama is a Communist-Facist.
 
2013-04-11 12:46:31 PM  
We all remember Obama's highly embarrassing shooting performance at last week's White House Easter Egg Roll. The commander-in-chief went just 2-for-22, even missing a gimme layup. The mocking that ensued was widespread.

Yes, it's all anyone was talking about for weeks.
 
2013-04-11 12:48:17 PM  
Y'know, I was hoping for a break with a headline like this.  Like, maybe we'd get some sort of charming and/or funny 80's movie moment where the politician and the pundit decide to put it all on the line through a game of three pointers!  Cue the montage music.

But no--it all comes down to an egomaniac calling someone else an egomaniac.

I never get anything I want.  Phooey.
 
2013-04-11 12:48:40 PM  
He had an off day shooting. Try taking 22 shots... you'll be tired. Beck did, what, 5 (didn't watch... just read it). If you watch Obama's form and release, he actually is a good shooter for someone north of 40 who doesn't play ball all the time. He actually has a very quick release, which is a tough skill to get a hold of and very handy in competitive basketball.

Beck wouldn't stand a chance in a game of 1 on 1.
