Taking A Page From Obama's Playbook

Sports Edition!! Since I wrote about Obama hanging out and playing basketball ON YOUR DIME, here is another basketball related post. Some of you may have seen the "lowlights" from last night's game between the LA Sparks and Detroit Shock. It all began when one player tripped over another player, and that player then plowed over the first player. All hell broke loose then, and it was a bench-clearing brawl. It was short-lived, but a brawl nonetheless. In the MIDST of it, the assistant coach of the Shock, Rick Mahorn, a LARGE man, got into it, and shoved Lisa Leslie down. Don't take my word for it - watch the video.

Now, if you have been living in a cave, and do not know who Lisa Leslie is, she has been a basketball star for YEARS (in the pros since 1997), an Olympic Gold Medalist, a model, and a mother. She has been a spokeswoman for women's basketball for quite some time. Unlike Obama, she can dunk, and was the first woman to do so in a professional basketball game.

So, this Mahorn guy shoves her down, and was ejected from the game after the referees reviewed the tape to see who was responsible for the melee. Afterwards, he said:

"I was trying to protect the whole game, the integrity of the game. The WNBA is very special to me because I have four daughters. I don't even raise my hand to them, and I would never push a woman. This game, I love this game too much."

Wow. That's the kind of convoluted logic that would make Obama PROUD!! I mean, really - he is ON VIDEO pushing her, and then he claims he would NEVER push a woman?? So, what, is he saying Lisa Leslie isn't a WOMAN, because that is the ONLY other explanation for his inane WORM-like statement.

As an added bonus, we have the Shock's head coach, BIll Laimbeer, telling us we didn't see what we saw. Oh, no - Mahorn is a PEACEMAKER!!!

I swear - ever since Bush took office, people have completely FLIPPED the actual definitions of words. He has done it constantly, Obama does it constantly, and now men are doing it when they shove women around - they are making PEACE, not PUSHING them! C'mon, what's WRONG with you?!?!

Seriously, though - after watching Obama this entire election season, especially in the debates and his WORMing after talking to the press, along with his TAX-PAYERS funded romp through the Middle East and Europe (hey - will you tax payers send ME to Europe?? Please?? I'll find some facts, I promise!), telling Katie Couric that she clearly does not understand him because he is trying his damndest to WORM around the whole SURGE issue, playing both sides, and if she would just PLAY ALONG already, and bow down to him, his point will be CLEAR - he was "against-it-before-he was-for-it-but-he-wouldn't-have-done-it-even-if-it-worked-and-it-is-working-isn't-that-great!" logic, it makes Mahorn's claim that he did not push Lisa Leslie down seem PLAUSIBLE. Watch any one of the replays on ESPN or YouTube or wherever - every commentator, especially the ones who WERE THERE said he pushed her. Heck - it is pretty darn clear he pushed her. Like Obama, Mahorn does not seem to realize we have VIDEO and REPLAY. Holy freakin' crap - what is the world coming to, I ask you?!? Just because he SAYS he didn't push him, we are supposed to listen to him, not believe our own eyes and ears? Well, that is EXACTLY what OBAMA has done for eighteen months now, so it shouldn't be all that surprising...

Good heavens, is this to what we have to look forward? Men behaving badly and then telling us they would NEVER behave badly despite all evidence to the contrary? Apparently so. This past year has pretty much demonstrated that by Obama and the MSM, though it wasn't Lisa Leslie who bore the brunt of it - it was all women, with the primary target being Hillary Clinton. That is simply unacceptable to me. This Obama Playbook, and the men who use it, are intolerable. We need to stand up, step up, and stop this. We cannot let them get away with this kind of Switcheroo Flip Flop Blame Us For Seeing What Is Happening Before Our Eyes. Not only MUST we have Hillary Clinton as our president to start correcting this brutish behavior, but WE need to stand up when we see/hear/experience it. Call attention to it. Make it clear that this is UNACCEPTABLE, no matter how much we are told we aren't seeing what we are seeing. We can do that. And we must.

Oh - and when was the last time you saw the WNBA get this much coverage?? Yeah. That's what I thought...
