Obama picks his NCAA teams -- but they're a secret still

By Michael D. Shear
In response to questions from reporters about how President Obama spends his time, press secretary Robert Gibbs just tweeted the following:

"Questions about POTUS' afternoon schedule - he just picked his men's and women's NCAA brackets..." Gibbs wrote.

So? Who did he pick?

No word yet. A spokesman at the White House said he knew "nada." Last year, Obama made his NCAA picks on ESPN, choosing North Carolina to win over Louisville. In the end, the Tar Heels went on to beat Michigan State.

To barnee: Why are you looking for a handout. Why not pick yourself up by your bootstaps. Why wait for Obama to solve your problems. Solve them yourself. You are everything that is wrong with our republic. Waiting for handout and screaming you aren't getting it fast enough.

Sorry, Obama is having a life, parties in WH, trips galore over seas, dinner everwhere, always on TV (thinks he's a baptist preacher/MLK) It's time he gets to work, he's the POTUS, not a Rock Star. Screw espn and selecting a NCAA champion. He needs to get down to business and determine how to create jobs in this country, GOOD paying jobs without the UNIONS. Shame on you obama for not getting the job done and promising so much.

Dang, he should've put 100 billion in stimulus funds on UNC to win the Title last year. Could have helped pay for health care or decrease the national debt! :-)
