Not On The Ball.....

Again our new President-to-be commented on the college football championship situation in light of Florida winning the National Championship over Okahoma this Thursday night. Upon receiving a question about the game while introducing his joke of an "national intelligence" team, he commented that "Texas, Utah and USC may have quibbles with the outcome - that's why we need a playoff".

While I disagree with his assessment (we don't need a playoff) it does show a general knowledge for what is going on in sports and the collegiate game. Unfortunately this man cannot even remotely make similar comments about anything else going on in this country. He has yet to utter a sentence which shows he has facilities regarding any major issue - and most specifically the economy and the war on terror. He now wants to chat with terrorists, undo our laws which have kept us safe, release the terrorists from their prison and irresponsibly spend our way out of the recession. And in fact since our economic situation is so dire I don't even understand why he is commenting on this at all. In fact if you were to poll the nation this is the one thing people would understand where the new President stands.

Reporter: "Where do you think the new President-Elect stands on the college football debate?"

Man on the Street: "He wants a playoff - that's for sure."

Reporter: "How is Obama going to help the economy?"

Man on the Street: "Fuck if I know".

There is your audacity of hope. What a load.
