Obama Throws Like A Girl? What Year is This?

posted by Ethan Nichtern

Hey Baseball Fans: Some people are saying President Obama throws like a girl after his all-star game pitch last night. I couldn’t tell; the camera work was horrible. Was Obama booed? Everything I saw reported thunderous applause. And btw, when did throwing like a girl become a bad thing? Ever watch Olympic softball? Those ladies are amazing. I wish I threw like them.

Of course, George W. Bush, who used to own (in part) his very own team, the Texas Rangers, threw a perfect strike to open a 2001 World Series game. And then proceeded to throw 7 years of wild pitches with planet Earth. That part didn’t make Sportscenter somehow.

The youtube of each is below. President Bush had an arm. President Obama has a mind. And now, back to things that matter.
At least Barack is good at basketball.

See how different the mood towards President Bush was in 2001?

That was just a couple of stray comments. The article itself was about his unflattering jeans, which I must admit I also noticed.

So no one can take shots at Obama for his lack of skill in one sport despite howits ok to praise him for his skill in another sport?
Besides Obama didn’t really throw like a girl in my opinion.
People really should be upset at how Obama’s policies are following George Bush to a T, except if anything Obama is more extreme. Where is the transparency in stimulus money? What about his war-mongering in Afghanistan? How can he keep spending the US into oblivion when the US is already debt-ridden beyond the bounds of anything reasonable?
Bush was horrible for a myriad of reasons, and it appears that Obama will be equally horrible or maybe worse.

Wisdom 2.0
If a zen master were sitting next to the chief technical officer of Twitter, what would they talk about? That sounds like a hypothetical overheared at a bar in San Francisco. But this weekend I saw the very thing at Soren Gordhamer's Wisdom 2.0 conference — named after his book of the same nam
