    Even apart from the fact that honoring the leader of this nation is nothing controversial, and even putting aside how absurd it is for anyone to think that the President of the United States has anything to do with decorations on basketballs, I think this is a great idea just to demonstrate how tightly the Obama Haters will tie themselves into knots trying to find some way to criticize the President for something silly and irrelevant like this.

    Basketball has always been good publicity for Presidents. Ronald Reagan was even willing to associate with black people when basketball was involved.

    As usual, you're completely wrong. The basketballs were donated by NBA and WNBA players, and were given out to the children who attended.

    Well, that settles it. If "Bucking Jenny" says it's so, it MUST be so.
    And you have mocked me in the past for using sources like 'Fox' or 'WND'
    Give me a break!

    LOL and this coming from "iriemon203". Is that the name on your birth certificate? Fox or WND are not sources of information; they are sources of propaganda. If you don't believe the basketballs were donated, then prove otherwise.

    As it turns out, you have nothing to worry about as far as your tax dollars. The basketballs were donated by NBA and WNBA players, and were given out to the children who attended.

    Another maniacal delusional conspiracy theory put to rest (although I'm sure you've got an endless supply)

    I guess googling is something else you ought to educate yourself about.

    What got this country into the mess that President Obama has worked so hard to clean up is attitudes like yours - don't do a damned thing for anyone but yourself, let anyone who might actually need help die rather than give it to them, and abandon anything that remotely resembles morality entirely. The Constitution says "We the people" not "I the only person that matters".
  • ProudPr... Claybern 2012/04/11 19:29:13

    Then you'll be pleased to know that no taxpayer dollars were spent on these basketballs. They were donated by the NBA and WNBA.
