Obama Can Offer An Opinion on Some Topics “When Hell Freezes Over”

During two years of campaigning for the White House, Barack Obama stood before cheering and adoring crowds and pontificated about … almost everything.

Now the cheering stops.

Case in point: Prsident-elect Obama chose to answer a question about college’s football’s Bowl Championship Series (BCS) on “60 Minutes.”  The feedback was chilling.

“The President-elect can fool around with our business when hell freezes over,” a college football bowl organizer told us.

Chris Dufresne  of the los Angeles Times wrote, “The troubling part about the ’60 Minutes’ interview was how much Obama knew about world matters and how little he knew about college politics.  Obama sounded like the guy at the corner bar who talked a good game but didn’t have all his facts.  Where were his advisors?”

Obama told “60 Minutes” last Sunday night he was going to “throw my weight around a little bit” in trying to force the playoff issue.

“That skinny F*** has no weight, absolutely zero, in the BCS matter,” said a Bowl organizer.

Ouch.

Well, the President of the United States may be the most powerful man in the world but on certain issues he has to just pass on the question.

On Mr. Obama’s “pardon” of Senator Joe Lieberman, the Independent who supported Obama rival John McCain for the White House, left leaning bloggers are up in arms.

“Apparently, the American people didn’t vote for change,” complained Markos Moulitsas, founder of dailykos.com, in an entry posted on his site that was laced with anger and sarcasm.

Ah, the thrill of victory and the agony of the critics!

    Whoa. People need to relax. Obama may have his 2 cents about but to realistically think he is going to spend any real time trying to force an issue with BCS when the ecomony is going in the sh*&^er is insane! So to Mr. Bowl organizer-take a chill pill! As much as I like college football there are just a few more things more improtant in the world!

    I do realize that I am commenting on the person described in the blog , not the blogger himself!
