The NBA Lockout is Breaking Barack Obama’s Heart

As the Commander-in-Chief, shouldn’t he be able to press a button and automatically end this bloody NBA lockout? Barack Obama says he’s heartbroken over the labor impasse in the NBA. From ABS-CBN News: “President Barack Obama says he is heartbroken over the delay in the 2011-2012 National Basketball Association (NBA) season. NBA Commissioner David Stern announced [Monday] that the first two weeks of the season will be cancelled after the league and the NBA Players Association failed to come up with a new collective bargaining agreement. Obama is now urging all involved in the league to come up with an agreement. ‘I’m a little heartbroken the NBA season is getting delayed here. So, I’m hoping that those guys are back on the court soon,’ Obama said.”

    Note to Obama: don’t use words like heartbroken to describe your feelings. It makes you look…well…weak. Please use words or phrases like pissed off, furious, angry, or mad as hell.

    poor guy, the most stressful job in the world and now he doesn’t have the NBA to watch and get away from it all

  • Chukaz

    He’s heart broken cuz the american people have one less thing to distract them and jobs are being lost. He’s already got enough ppl on his a$$, he doesn’t need bored people to start to focus on politics. Ant the lockout ain’t helping the unemployment rate.

    remember clinton’s comment about Jordan un-retiring and returning to the NBA? he said something to the effect that he created X amount of job, and if Jordan comes back it’d be X amount + 1 jobs created.
    so yeah, i agree with Chukaz.
