Obama comment during the All Star Game

Anyone listen to him when he was in the booth?

It went something like this...



Joe Buck: "So the NL hasn't won this game since 1996... think we can get a bailout package for them?"

Obama: *Laughs* "Oooh, I don't know about, that we're out of money."


*Big hit, crowd goes crazy*

McCarver and Buck go back to the game for a second and then move on to the next subject.




As soon as he said that, I just know I had some combination of these two looks on my face:

POTUS at the All Star Game: No Bailout for the National League? "No, We're Out of Money"

July 14, 2009 9:49 PM


Sporting a White Sox jacket and some rather square dad-esque jeans (Bugle Boy?), lefty President Obama did a perfectly respectable job throwing out the first pitch at the All-Star game in St Louis this evening.

Though it was tough to tell on TV, the president *seemed to* throw the ball over the plate to Cardinal first baseman Albert Pujols, who inched up from a catcher's normal spot.

There were some scattered boos, but more cheers.

Smiling like he just clinched the final game of the World Series, the president then pumped his arm, seemingly pleased with the high-pressure pitch he'd been practicing.

President Obama joined sportscasters Joe Buck and Tim McCarver for some chit-chat in the FOX booth.

Why wear the White Sox jacket? He was asked.

"I'm a White Sox fan and my wife thinks I look cute in this jacket so why not?" said the president.

Unlike some White Sox fans, the president noted that he is NOT a Cubs hater, "I just don’t root for them."

To meet Stan Musial and Stan Gibson on the field, he said, was "such a reminder about what's great about this country, and you can't beat it."

Was his heart pounding beneath the jacket before the pitch?

The president coolly pointed out that he'd thrown out a first pitch during the American League Championship Series in 2005 when the White Sox hosted the Angels.

But "when you're a senator they show you no respect," he joked, and he didn't get to warm up four years ago. This time he did, and "we did a little practicing in the Rose Garden." He noted that after he threw out the first pitch, the White Sox won their next eight games.

The sportscasters noted that the last two teams he predicted would win it all -- the North Carolina Tarheels for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament and the Pittsburgh Steelers for the Super Bowl -- won. So he's "two for two." Did he have any predictions for this year's World Series?

"It's a little early," he joked, "I tend to get a little more information" before he makes picks like that.

The president said there's "a lot of parity" across MLB, "which I think is terrific….Everybody around the country, there's a little hope for their team, except for maybe the Nationals."

The president pointed out that All Star and Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino, "is a Hawaiian kid." Former Phillies catcher McCarver pointed out that Victorino is the first "position player to come out of Hawaii," though three pitchers have hailed from the president's home state.

It was pointed out to the president that the National League hasn’t won the All Star Game since 1996 when he was starting his political career.

"This is a problem," the president said, asking Buck and McCarver, "what's your best theory on this?" Three or four years' worth of losing is one thing, you can say it's "just happenstance," but this was something else. McCarver cited the American League's designated hitter rule.

"So there's no bailout plan for the National League?" one of the sportscasters asked, laughing.

"No," said the president, "we're out of money."

He's just preparing us for the screwing we're going to get when he jacks up taxes to pay for the NL bailout.

Are you really that stupid? This man (Oblahma) has fucked up America's chance to recover in ways that astound me. He has pushed for bills to pass that NO PERSON THAT WAS VOTING HAD READ! He has preached transparency and change and given us nothing of the like. How the FUCK do you think that this is mildly ok? When a POTUS talks, his words are heard around the world. Other countries base there opinions of us upon his actions and words. I for one do not like the reputation that we are forming in the world community. Shit like "we are out of money" SCREAMS volumes about our country's financial health. How is that about being politically correct? I think that statement was another shot in the mouth to our founding fathers and every American's way of life, not some PC bumble. Get your head on straight jackass.

I was more angry that someone could just pass over the "out of money" thing. It was in bad taste and said many negative things about our country. I believe that was wrong, its like getting your ass kicked by a 13 year old lord of the rings geek when you are a 6 foot tall 21 year old jock and then talking about it on a national scale.

Damn, you are blind as fuck aren't you? While it IS joke, it was made in very bad taste. I feel that if Obama thinks the public is so desensitized to our downfall that he can make a "joke" like this that it speaks volumes about his intentions for our country.

Him saying that the US is out of money is like walking up to a 15 year old with cancer and making a joke about it.

If you believe America has cancer then you are the one with the problem.

Have you ever noticed that cancer grows? It starts with one cell then a whole lot join in on the action. Right now you are not the majority, but someday I fear you might be. That is the day that America will die.

The problem (the cancer) is the assholes running this country into the ground, and the dipshits that put them and keep them in office. I'm neither one of those.

How about the majority of Americans SCREAMING for the stimulus package not to get passed? How about the majority of Americans opposing the bailout of GM? How about the growing number of Americans voicing their disapproval of Obama? There are plenty of ideas out there, just nobody in the Democrat controlled government hears them.

So you are not screaming for anything? Because that is exactly what you want to happen, Nothing. You will criticize everything he does no matter what it is. Like I said. I hear a lot of complaints but no answers.
Name one thing he has done that you like??????? Try this one. www.google.com

I am not quick to jump on any band wagon chump, I dont give a shit what anyone thinks of me. I have no problem forming my own opinion and voicing it, has nothing to do with band wagons.

I guess I didn't realize that I was right ... oh well.

Completely backwards.

Doing nothing means not layering on more federal "programs" and bureaucrats to mismanage them. Doing nothing means not mortgaging our financial well-being to foreign lenders. Doing nothing means letting the financial institutions fail that should fail because their CEO's got greedy.

Doing nothing sounds pretty good right now, and it's going to sound very good in about 4-5 more years when there's little to show for the Obama spending spree other than higher interest rates, an enormous deficit, and more unneeded federal regulations.

Obama reminds me a lot of Michael Jackson's former shopping trips in Las Vegas....buying everything in sight in front of a gaggle of fawning worshippers and paparazzi,

Ok, my bad. You are easily influenced. Hows that? All I did was quote something and you go on and on about how illiterate you are. lol

I really like how you like calling people names that have never said anything about you personally. Shows your true character.

The economy was fucked up from the word go. What you are saying is we should just bend over and take it with out even making an attempt to fix shit? I dont want to go out like that.

The federal government is not capable of fixing the economy. Look at the government's own balance sheets to see their track record thus far in economic managment.

News flash, chief: You don't fix a financial deficit by spending more money.

So how do you want to 'go out'? With China holding the note to the nation? The Chinese are just sitting back and laughing as the United States spends its way to oblivion. Bad debt? Not a problem, the Chinese will happily buy it. Because when the United States defaults, the Chinese will own this country lock stock and barrel.

Have you bothered to look at what the national debt from this stimulus package will be? Can you point to ONE thing that has positively affected your life as a result of it? Can you point to ONE job created by it? I cannot.

I can't think of a SINGLE thing the man has done that I approve of. And I've looked for something.

Doing nothing is worse than doing the wrong thing.
Relieve corporate tax rates and put a stop to all EPA / climate change legislation for the remainder of his term. In other words, give incentives for companies to form and grow here, hire more American workers, and increase the overall tax base significantly. That would be my plan.

Obama's plan of bailouts and tax increases is unfair to the marketplace (FORD) and makes companies do everything they can to close doors and scramble out of this country. Have you not noticed that 500,000 Americans lose their jobs every month? That is staggering. You want immediate action, it should NOT be in the form of bailouts, it should be in finding ways to get companies to hire workers.

At it's core, Obama's plan is designed to make people more dependent on government. Do you agree with that assessment?

Other countries base there opinions of us upon his actions and words. I for one do not like the reputation that we are forming in the world community. Shit like "we are out of money" SCREAMS volumes about our country's financial health. How is that about being politically correct? I think that statement was another shot in the mouth to our founding fathers and every American's way of life, not some PC bumble. Get your head on straight jackass.
He hasn't even been in office for a year yet. It's wayyyyy too early to decide whether his policies will work or not.

LMAO at you apologists for the Messiah. Bush was held responsible from day 1 for everything that happened by your ilk and when the table is turned you claim he just needs some time. How typically hypocritical of you!

Since he didn't deny the war in Afghanistan, is he responsible for the spike in death thats Yahoo has been reporting or is that Bush's fault also?

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

lol @ calling me a hypocrite. I was like 17 or something when Bush was voted in the 2nd time. Assuming makes an ass out of u and me.

So because they grilled Bush from day 1 by liberals that means I am supposed to grill Obama from day 1? No thanks. I don't support him nor would I ever vote for him but I will at least give him time to let his policies take effect and then cast my judgments. You all in here are so close-minded to any blue politician that you do not even give them a chance to do anything before you label them failures. Give me a break.
