I was watching the beginning of the Baseball All Star Game and although my tv reception is not that good cause of rain Im pretty sure that I heard Obama been booed when he was announced.

Thats a pretty big change of sentiment from people from St. Louis if you takeinto consideration that Obama gave a campaign speech there to which 100,000 people showed up and cheer and he also was there for his 100th day as president and also was received with a warm welcome.

May be the fact hat he was wearing a White Sox jacket (white sox played cardinals in the 2006 world series and the cards won) or is the honeymoon finally over with Obama and the people?

Kind of odd but... a friend of mine (big, big baseball fan) called and said pretty much the same thing.

I wasn't watching.

Yep, they booed him. There were cheers as well, but you can hear the initial reaction of booing, and booes mixed in the entire time.

This is only the beginning. The BOOS will get plenty worse as time goes on. Like I said before...Bush ruined the country, but Obama is making things worse with his socialism. This guy is not coming back after four years, he's toast. The economy will get worse under this guy's watch, with all his bail-outs and keyensian stimulus packages, we are in for some tough times.

I'm actually suprised MORE people didn't boo. Based on my experience with the MSM, I'm sure that the actual boos were somewhat subdued on TV by the soundboard. In the ball park, I'm sure it was much more audible.

By the way... My wife's initial reaction was that he throws like a girl.


Right now, the D-bag is being a camera whore, and hanging out with the announcers in the booth. I sure hope America sees how phony and egotistical Mr. Soetoro truly is.

It's unacceptable to boo the president of the United States, I don't care what your beef is.

It is especially egregious to taint the national pastime with such boorish behavior.

As common as it is these days, it is never acceptable to boo anyone.

It's rude, crude, and unsportsmanlike.

I gotta say, I'm fairly surprised there was booing, however it's clear from the video (thank you!).

It was kind of a ...... soft ...... pitch. I suppose it would be worse to have him throw a firm but wild pitch.. I don't know. Myself, I'd have more respect for a strong pitch that went wild -- at least he'd have tried.

Perhaps he thought accuracy was more important for a POTUS.

Still pretty surprised that (a) there was booing and (b) that it wasn't mixed out. That's live TV for you, I guess.

I hear all cheering with a few isolated boos, just like a cross section of this board there is always a few simpletons.

It may be unsportsmanlike, but when YOU pay tens of dollars if not hundreds of dollars to pay for any event, at the very least you should be allotted to voice your disapproval of anyone, barring of course no private property is damaged or anyone is hurt.

This especially should be done so, whenever ANY tax-feeding politician takes the mound.

Besides the President of the United States is not Jesus Christ, he is not immune or infallible...after all he has to answer to US...he is our servant. We do not serve HIM.

I heard the same. Difficult to identify who the "simpletons" are. I guess sometimes we know our own.

Political correctness is lame. End of story.

The booing is part of baseball... Don't believe me? Check out a Yankees game at Fenway, or vice versa.

It's part of the game, part of the experience. Wouldn't trade it for the world...

"He" throws like a socialist girl.

Yeah Sherlock. Since the All Star Game was telecast by FOX I'm sure they went out of their way to suppress the real live audio. Since they adore him so much.

I'll bet she also thinks you're a real catch Slugger.

Hostile much?

To be honest the majority of people who still have money to attend a baseball game but more important an ALL STAR GAME are people that are still doing well... pretty much the people that Obama is looking to TAX! so thinking it from that angle it nows surprise me that he didnt got booed even louder!

It's not political correctness. It's called dignity, decency, and sportsmanship.

I know that New Yorkers boo, but that doesn't make it right.

In my opinion, it makes it worse.

It is unsportsmanlike and worse even.

BTW, I just saw replay. He threw it squarely over the plate to catcher.

Anybody remember Bush's pitches?

Obama is a class act with a decent arm.

I could ask the same question of you...

Wow... are you stalking my posts or something? This is the second thread where you have barely adhered to T+C in respect to my character!

Did I insult your dream life partner or something?

I don't know about where you're from, or who you are, nor do I particularly care.

Where I come from, it's not just OK for a man to be a man... It's a cherished value!

Political correctness and hyper sensitivity are laughed at far and wide. We've still got our heads on straight around here. We calls 'em as we sees 'em.

To answer your assumption: Yeah, my wife thinks I'm a catch. I'm a FATHER to my children, I have Constitutionally based American values, AND I throw a ball like a man.

It's laughable to come to the defense of a "man" who could easily speak for himself, if he even cared... Which I assure you, he doesn't.

Get a life.

I Think the love affair between Obama and the people are finally ending. Even some of the ill-minded people who voted for him, looking for freebies, are getting tired of his radical ideology. I guess you can only go so far until you anger the people. So ya, I think the affair is slowly ending.

O and by the way, the White Sox jacket excuse doesn't work
In 2006, the Cardinals beat my hometown Detroit Tigers
Good try to find that excuse though, I would have done the same

I agree.

I didn't care for Bush, but I'd never had booed the guy.

Then again, remember, even Santa Claus gets booed now-a-days.

And while 100,000 people might have shown up to see Obama speak at a rally, the All-Star game is NOT a rally.

And I'd venture to say it's likely that under 50% of those in attendance voted for him, since he carried less than that in the general. I'd also venture to say that the socio-economic demographic that supported Obama is also probably not significantly in attendance.

I could be wrong...

Even though I disagree with the notion that President Bush "ruined the country", I do agree that regardless of your or my feelings towards him, we can at least see through the current Administration in a crystal clear manner. That much I am glad of, although I must say that the potential catastrophe which awaits us does me no delight nor joy to contemplate.

On the topic of "BOOS will get plenty worse", I am actually extremely surprised that certain very liberal constituents whom I know in UpState NY, and who voted for President Obama, and now actually turning against him as well. I could have never imagined such an extremely quick and vicious turnabout in opinion and realization.
