Here's Obama throwing out the first pitch at the All-Star game. He throws worse than a girl.


Maybe all the booing got to him. The driver of the golf cart certainly didn't seemed too impressed.

Oh Please! He did a good job. Why do people have to nit pick him for EVERYTHING?! He did better than several sports stars have done in the past, and just for fun, maybe we can compare him to how other Presidents have done!

Did you even watch the video? He didn't flub the pitch. This thread is a lie.

You must be trying to pick a fight with Obama supporters.

Yeah I watched the game. He didnt flub it. He just threw as if he never even threw a baseball in his life. It was pretty bad, but what do you expect from a politician. He doesnt know sports, only knows the gambling aspect. I.e.: the NCAA championship bracket in the white house.

just imagine if you guys in the US had got Mccain. He would have had a heart attack just attempting to get up the steps.

Where do you see the "flub"? Looks to me he did a fine job considering.

Are you running low on anti-Obama ammunition?

There were definitely some boos but at least he did better than this guy.

I think he threw it fine. He even stood on the actual pitcher's mound to do it and it went straight to the catcher. For someone that has probably never played baseball, he did well.

I'm surprised they let all those people boo. The booing was pretty loud. I would like to know how many secret service agents were in the crowd and did they pat down every single person that entered the stadium that day? That security clearance must have been insane.

My brother in law did security at the superbowl (he's an FBI agent). He said that all throughout the game, they were looking for an arab guy that was thought to have a bomb.

No he didn't. Did you see where the ball landed?

I don't know about anyone else, but I do it because I don't like him.

Name one "sports star" he did better than.

Watch where the ball ended up.

Fine job considering he's a sissy metrosexual.

Not at all. The material just keeps coming and coming and coming.....

No it didn't. There's a reason that they didn't show the camera shot on national TV that showed the catcher. The ball ended up on the ground on the first base line in front of the batters box.


For someone that has probably never played baseball, he did well.


For someone that the MSM portrays as a "chiseled, sculpted" figure, he failed miserably.

This *is* America, you know. People are allowed to boo a loser.

This is getting ridiculous. We don't need to constantly hear about every little thing Obama does. It's becoming extremely pathetic.

And honestly, it wasn't a bad pitch. He got the ball there, that's what counts.

Even if the ball didn't get there who gives a S#%!. Oh ya..the O.P. Maybe it is the contrast of his skin with that white ball that bothers some folks.

You're right...pathetic.

Oh come on people look at his early heritage.

He probably grew up playing half ball. I've seen that played in many poorer countries.

There was nothing wrong with his pitch.

He threw a curve ball that broke hard to the left and ran into the ground.

meh

I've seen worse.

Anyway, I think he's more of a basketball man.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Flub?!!?!? That may be to date the single biggest success of his presidency. Besides, I have to at least toss out some kudos for the White Sox jacket.



As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Let's ask the catcher:


"It was in the air the whole way,'' Pujols said, denying that he saved Obama from bouncing the pitch. "I scooted up a little bit, but I think I was going to catch it no matter what. It was a great pitch. I was more nervous to drop the ball, believe me. I wasn't worried about him bouncing the ball.''


sports.espn.go.com...

As to the booing:


"He took a couple warm-up tosses in the cage and then he went out there and had a perfect throw,'' Pujols said. "One of the things I told him was the only boos you hear are because of that jacket you're wearing.''


 


I've got to agree, this is a lame thread. I thought we were better than this.

we could talk about HOCKEY instead of ... *yawn* ... baseball.
Hockey .... you know ... NHL Hockey .... and the fact that a
Canadian team hasn't taken Stanley home since 1993 (Montreal)


(OMG .. did I just say that to a Canadian??
)

Personal opinion of the man aside, and from someone with a baseball (pitching) background, you get out there and do it in front of millions watching. There's plenty of things to crack on the guy about, but this is lame.

Peace
