So he aspires to be George W. Bush?

I am sorry subby but given Obama's preference to basketball, I would hazzard the guess that he would likely own a basketball team.... so make that work 3-5 days a week.

Pants full of macaroni!!: HOTY contender?


Yeah, I thought that was a pretty good, well-crafted little bit of snark.

Sounds like he'd be the perfect owner for the Toronto Blue Jays

That was a long article for basically just dissecting a throwaway joke that is pretty much standard patter for any politician.

President Obama's current estimated net worth: $12.2 million

You don't even get invited out to coffee with sports team owners for that amount.

But he could maybe get a shiatload of no/low interest loans from Texas developers to buy a share of the team, then pay them back in political favors.  You just don't understand finance.

That's worth a chunk of the Dolphins - that equates to roughly 1.87 Estefans.

That's a fairly accurate description of Obama's whole life.

Hey subby, pro athletes usually DO own up to their failures, so they're nothing like politicians.  Except that they do thank Jesus a lot when they succeed.
