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.”
