 Obama reveals Final Four bracket picks

As America settles in for another round of March Madness, its basketball fan in chief is releasing his bracket for the NCAA College Basketball Championships.



President Barack Obama’s Final Four picks for the men’s and women’s tournaments were revealed Tuesday night, with the full bracket set to be revealed at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, according to ESPN. Obama chose No. 1 seeds Arizona and Florida, No. 4 seeds Louisville and Michigan State to make it to the men’s Final Four.

“I know these are not imaginative picks, but I think they’re the right ones,” Obama explained as he penned his picks into a white board in an interview excerpt that aired on ESPN.



A noted basketball fan, Obama has made releasing his bracket an annual tradition. Last year, his picks were in the 74th percentile, according to ESPN.

So what if the president takes some time out of his day to fill out a bracket? It something a lot of us do every March. We all have committments, but it's good for the mind and soul to take a break and do something fun.

If Obama insisted on finishing it if he was alerted to an attack on our country, that would be a problem. So, please, right-wingers, have some perspective. George W. Bush spent a record amount of time during his presidency on VACATION while our country went to sh*t. Obama spent under an hour on this bracket, so, please, keep in mind where you're coming from

"Need health insurance?

So now the President of the United States is basically doing infomercials - at every opportunity - to sell health insurance before the deadline at the end of March?

It's pretty clear he doesn't give a rat's rear end about anything but himself and what's immediately in front of him. Russia? Too far away. Booorrrring! Bring me a beer, Reggie, and let's snuggle.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
