Kids Shoot Obama Basketballs At White House

Kids Shoot Obama Basketballs At White House
President Barack Obama participates in a basketball drill on the White House Basketball Court during the 2012 White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn.

Monday marked the 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. During the Easter Egg Roll, kids roll their favorite hard-boiled and decorated egg down the South Lawn at the White House. The tradition was started in 1878 by President Rutherford B. Hayes.

This year’s theme was “Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move.”

“My job is very simple,” said President Barack Obama. “It is to introduce the powerhouse of the White House.”

The President was referring to Michelle Obama. The day was filled with a number of fitness events, including a basketball clinic. All of those who participated in the event, which was hosted by professional players, got up close and personal with the President.

The basketballs used by the children featured a picture of Obama.

    Basketball takes priority in the mind of a secularist/communist/marxist radical over Jesus on Easter – is this not really the expected antic’s of what he truly is?

    • Vigilant

      Obama’s picture on a basketball? Well, I’m not a basketball player, but I suppose there’s some satisfaction in dribbling his face into the pavement once or twice a second.

      As for other product promotions, I would prefer to have the image on each sheet of toilet paper I buy. Imagine being able to buy Boxer Bathroom Tissues, Waters Wipes, or Schumer Sheets. Nothing could be finer than cleaning your backside with a wad of Waxmans or a Reid Roll.

      And don’t say a word, liberals….you’ve been wiping yours with the Constitution for decades.

      • Sirian

        LOL!!! Now that’s one hell of a good idea Vig, Waters Wipes, Schumer Sheets, a Reid Roll. . . LOL!!!! Now all you libs, remember – If you don’t like it, wipe it!! LOL!!! :)

        I’ve tried to post the link twice, but it’s being rejected. There’s a web site called “funslurp” dot com that has “O” TP.

        Be nice to go out in the pasture with one of those Obammer Balls and bounce it through the cow plies, especially the fresh ones.

    • Mamamia

      Oh please…. like kids can’t play basketball on easter. This poor man can’t do anything without being attacted. It doesn’t matter what it is, where it is, who it is, how it is. I suppose this article was just thrown in so it could be hounded by the “regulars” on here. It’s not even an article on policies.. why must you attack? Where else on earth does a story about the president playing basketball with kids on a national holiday get ripped apart by the so called “God Loving and patriotic citizens of its country? It really doesn’t matter anyway….. it’s just a bad habit at this point. People just cannot help themselves. It’s a national obsession to see who can say the most negative thing about our country’s president.

      • smash44

        Oh yeah right. Like you and your brainwashed liberal lemmings didn’t lambast Bush and Cheney on a minute-to-minute basis. And it;’s not playing basketball that’s the issue. It’s his Marxist attitude that his ugly mug has to be emblazoned a a basketball. I guess you’re too naive and obamaized to remember the murals of Lenin, Stain, Castro, Mao and other Commies that were plastered over every billboard in every city. That’s the issue, not a stupid game.

      • John

        This site is no place for clear thinkers. I’d suggest that you forget about this site Just like me and any other people who think for themselves.

        • Mamamia

          Thanks John. :)

  • Looking for REAL change

    A Dictator in the making…….pay atitention America…….soon we will be seeing his face all over our nation if we don’t vote him out of the White House. The ONLY reason he was a Constitutional Law professor was so he could study how to eventually lead the charge to get rid of it……and our personal Freedoms along with it!

  • Lonestar Jack

    Is he signing watermellons also?

  • crowvet

    Gee I am surprised that the Author of this article called it Easter Egg Roll. The Tyrannt and family changed it to “Celebrating Spring Egg Roll” of course by family excecutive Order. Wasn’t on Easter. Was on Monday because Muslums can’t celebrate Easter.That tyrannt and family dosen’t know what Easter is. Then they put on a phoney act of going to Easter Services at a phoney church. How dispicable.!!!!!

      Have you not realized how easy it is for politicians to con people?

    I doubt if Obama can play basketball as well as they want us to believe. He throws a baseball like a 3 year old & swings a golf club very similar to a 3 year old too.

  • msbets

    LOL, this is a joke, and so is the now red house, occupant, just pathetic.

  • Patriot Diva

    Do the libs realize how commie this looks? Next they’ll be parading down the streets of our cities with giant flags emblazened with Obama’s mug on them. Just like in the days of the old Soviet Union, or today’s North Korea.

  • Lucinda

    It’s very communistic to have dear leader’s face plastered on balls, flags or wherever anyone looks. This president and his masters are creepy and sneaky.

    • eddie47d

      You all like getting your panties in a bunch over a non issue. Troll on masses! Reagan has his picture on coffee mugs and other paraphernalia as do all Presidents. They call them souvenirs. Get Real! Don’t you just love the free marketing system!

  • chuckb

    eddie, reagan didn’t have his face plastered on the tv every day of the week, every news program. make a speech every fifteen minutes, if that isn’t indocrionation of the ignorant mass i’ll give it up.

  • Nemo

    Not a regular, but a newie, mamymia (and edie47): but as soon as I saw on the court the one who elocutes Marine corpse, the Austrian people speaking a non-existent language, a non-recipient being described as a MOH recipient, and his 1 or 2 daddys as having liberated WWII enemy camps when they were both < 4 years old!: we were not at all surprised by the COMMA-SPLICED (duhh) “Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move.” vis-a-vis a literate, educated speaker's versions of the King's/Queen's standard English: "Let's go; let's play; let's move." or "Let's go. Let's play. Let's move!" Give your great locomotive of the people another free pass: it's no worse than the dummies and < 1/2 functional illiterates who spout "Don't ask, don't tell" while ignorant of the proper, "Don't ask; don't tell." and "Don't ask. Don't tell."

    • James

      Does anyone here understand that?

  • Onanger

    Theres to manys things a person could do with a B.B with this clowns face on. By all accounts he’s s–t for a player so all that can be done is display his big ear’d self on a damn ball. I love the fact that you can buy ass-wipe with his mug on it. Think I’ll order some and then eat a big greasy burger.

  • James

    While ‘Easter’ was first mentioned in the article, it only appeared once in the above comments. And it only appears once in the King James Authorized Version of the Bible. At Acts 12:4 we read: “And when he [Pilot] had apprenended him, he put him [Peter} in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.”
    The word ‘Easter’ was translated from the Greek ‘pascha’ which in every other New Testament instance it was translated ‘the Passover.’ The first Christians were celebrating the Passover, not Easter. ‘Easter’ came from ‘Ishtar’ a pagan goddess. What does a pagan goddess and egg hunts have to do with the Passover or Christianity?
