Talk about Priorities … President Barack Obama Says he is “heartbroken that the NBA season is getting delayed”



Once again we are witness to the priorities of President Barack Obama. At a fundraiser he stated that he is “heartbroken that the NBA season is getting delayed”. I guess if the PGA went on strike as well Obama would be in a complete depression.  Talk about a lack of priorities. DUDE, you are the President of the United States … who cares whether a bunch over overpaid, spoiled basketball players are not playing. If you are heartbroken over a work stoppage in the NBA, you should be paralyzed with dismay and devastated by the millions of  unemployed Americans in the US at the hands of your economic policies. GET YOUR ACT IN GEAR OBAMA AND FOCUS … I wonder how the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd feels about you sympathizing with millionaires?

President Obama said Tuesday that he’s “a little heartbroken that the NBA season is getting delayed” at a fundraiser in Orlando with Magic star Dwight Howard.

NBA commissioner David Stern announced Monday that at least the first two weeks of the basketball season would be cancelled after players and owners were unable to agree on a new collective bargaining agreement. Obama said he had discussed the situation backstage with Howard, and hopes to see players back on the court “soon.”

The president is an unabashed basketball fan, often playing pickup games with staff and friends. The president attended an NBA game between the Washington Wizards and his hometown Chicago Bulls. Last August, Obama invited a dream team of NBA greats to play basketball with him on his birthday.

Now if Obama was only as heartbroken over the fact that millions are out of work, record number of people on food stamps, record number of people in poverty and a failed economy. What else would one expect under this President but a work stoppage?

      To me, what’s heartbreaking is to hear about people losing their jobs and then losing their homes which they have worked for years to maintain. It’s heartbreaking when the breadwinner of the family is unable to find work. It’s heartbreaking when young families struggle to raise their children to be productive, decent people only to have their income confiscated in the form of taxes, taxes which are then given to people who won’t work. I’d make a bet that the majority of those parasitic “Occupy Wallstreet” people is on welfare and every other kind of dole the government provides. It’s heartbreaking to see tax money being wasted by giving it to people like Nancy Pelosi’s brother in law under the pretext of finding ways to reduce global warming, when global warming doesn’t exist. The earth as a whole was l/2 degree cooler last year. It’s heartbreaking for Obama to try to get a bill passed to “Put people back to work” when each job created costs us one million dollars. It’s heartbreaking that Barack Hussein Obama is our President. Yet, his heart breaks over basketball games. Go figure.

      Since I don’t believe he is in charge, he will play golf and shoot baskets until the people who are in charge give him a new speech to make.

      This guy is a failure at anything he does. He and his wife are the poster family for Afirmative Action. A social experiment that doesn’t work.
