    Our Orange only make it past the Elite 8 every 10 years or so. We get to see Mr. President on TV every 20 minutes. Sit down Berry. I want to watch Carter-Williams drive the lane!

    Some people have no class at all. Amazing.

    Or perhaps it is a response to someone who is viewed as a classless President, which would not be so amazing.

    No excuse. I would never boo any POTUS. The office carries respect regardless. He is our President.

    Didn't he "boo" Syracuse by saying Indiana would win the tournament, and they were eliminated by Syracuse. If he's going to step outside the responsibilities of his office and poke his nose into something extraneous thereto, he should face the consequences. It that was good enough for Hank Williams, Jr., when he did that, it's good enough for B. Hussein O.

    On our news station, one of the anchors gave the story and the other said "I'm surprised he was there! I thought he was sequestered." We got a good laugh at that "dig". ;)

    We are supposed to be broke [as a nation]....

    ....why is he spending the money for Secret Service, and all the other amenities [accorded to a sitting president for activities] to be at a game that he could have easily watched on 100 inch television in the WH; while in turn, SAVING ALL OF US HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

    Obama continues to say to us, "Do as I say, NOT as I do!"

    We are sequestered, shouldn't that sequester begin with the man leading our nation???

    There have been cuts across the board in this country, and I think he should be setting the standard by saving money, not throwing it away on a meaningless game, just because he could be there. Maybe some of those furloughed government workers would have enjoyed being at that game too!

    Instead, he spends it like a man with no limit on how much he can spend.

    Good for the boobirds. They got it right...he deserved every boo and then some. :thumbs:

    And as for your comment about him deserving the respect because of the position he holds. You must remember: Respect is earned. When he does things right, he gets the praise and applause. So why shouldn't he get the proper response when it is warranted???

    He is not God...he is no better than any other American. He puts his pants on the same as us, one leg at a time. He is merely a man, voted into the office, and if he does a poor job, he should expect to hear what others think. Maybe he'll be a little more humble, but I doubt it!

    thank you, oh, thank you.
    as for me, I had never had respect for that tenant at the White House, from DAY ONE of his first campaign.
    I didn't know why then, and I don't know why now, but his body language and facial expressions always came across to me, even from TV, that the guy is never going to be any good for the American people.

    Thank you!
    This yokel has ALWAYS reminded me of a POTUS" version of a STEPFORD wife. IE: the only true emotion I've seen from this zero is the seething he couldn't (try tho he did) hide when Dr Carson was chewing him up & spitting him out at the inaugural.

    His Demeanor is....

    ....one of an "Uppity" person! It is sad to say, but he [and his wife] carries himself in a way that says, "I am better than you! Now, I am here; you are there, and I will do as I want; spend as I want; govern as I want; lead as I want; and NO one in America can challenge me [or knock me off the hill upon which I am king of], because first and foremost, I am the president, and if that isn't enough, to challenge me is a form of racism that America has never before seen!

    Besides, if you don't like what is going on in America, I can always put the blame for the sad state of affairs of this nation on the back of the Bush fella! After all, he did all this stuff, and I am merely here to clean up his trashing of the WH and nation. And it's been quite a job. :BangHead:
