Obama thumbs up to NBA Agreement


President Obama remarked "good deal!" and gave a thumbs-up in response to reporter questions about today's agreement to resume the NBA season.  The President responded to the news of the agreement between the NBA owners and player after wrapping up his own personal game of basketball with friends at Washington's Fort McNair Army Base.

      barack obama, a completely inexperienced candidate, is promoted and sold to the the American public ... and even wins the Nobel Prize, for doing nothing. Staged events and photo ops abound. This empty suit, upstart, polarizes America, and preaches the downfall of all the conventional wisdom which built this country. He never had a job, yet dictates anti-capitalist policies, which result in massive unemployment, a national credit downgrade, sinking real estate values, record gas prices, half a trillion dollar loans to losers like Solyndra, 4 Trillion dollars in additional debt, in just 3 years, etc., etc. etc. ... meanwhile the biased main stream media, who never vetted this fool in the first place, and blindly devoted obama comrades, like the brain washed few, posting here, continue to make excuses for him, and provide him with qualities, and accomplishments, he simply does not possess.

        Hey dude chill out, don't get mad because you lost your job. Obama not the blame it's your greedy boss and his cronies, you sound as if your young dumb and full of it. So do us all a flavor go back and do some reading about your great retards leaders. how they screwed USA for years. OBAMA is guilty for one thing that is OPENING AMERICA's eyes on how we have been getting the shaft for years and the 1% didn't give a damn about what they were doing to USA.

    I am so tired to this man. I am so tired of the bias media trying to prop him up no matter what it does. I am tired of the negative comments about everyone who dares to question him. Just get out of office. This country is more important than Mr. Obama's basketball opinions, and his incessant attempts to try anything to win reelection. Mr. President, with all do respect, you are going to lose. Do it with, at least, a little dignity, class and respect.

    I'm glad the NBA finally can start their season. I hope the Bulls will continue improving and maybe even make it to the finals this year. What Obama thinks about it is irrelevant, since it has nothing to do with anything. Must have been a slow news day at CNN.

    The difference is while u were paying money for some preppy school to teach u to be an idiot i was at work learning to be an idiot.i must be smarter than the average idiot cuz i could list so many valid reasons u shouldnt like obama that i would need to write a book.but i wont waste my time cuz the book has already been written.its called a history book.he keeps repeating the failed history of greece nazi germany and rome.the definition of stupid is to keep doing the same thing failing to learn it doesnt work.

    obama had to give two thumbs up cuz his kids need a role model.hes done such a terrible job at president that he had to resort to the nba to provide a role model cuz he had both thumbs so far up his ass that he doesnt realize a role model is just another word for false idol.

    Well, to all you Obama haters, why haven't you run for president. Let's see: no education, prison records, don't know if your dad is really your uncle, don't know who your dad is, family been living in the trailer park so long, you don't know if your auntie is really your mother, sister or granny, and last but not least, you are just not cute enough.. Too many teeth missing...
