    Obama throws the opening pitch

    Excerpted from “Obama throws the opening pitch” By POLITICO STAFF, “Politico 44,” Politico, 04/05/10 2:25 PM
    President Obama tossed out the first pitch at Nationals Park Monday afternoon, throwing high and wide to start the Washington team's opener against the Philadelphia Phillies. …
    Doffing his Chicago White Sox cap while on the mound probably didn't endear him to the Nationals fans.

    That was one of the most pitiful throws I've ever seen. He throws like a girl... a three year old one.

    It made it past home base which for a politician is saying something.

    I too make my opinion on politicians based on their ability to throw a baseball.

    Even though there are many things I disagree with regarding his politics, I gotta agree with the man about the White Sox and the Bears.

    That throw was pretty sad but he plays basketball better than I do, So I guess I can't knock him too much for it.

    He would throw better if he was a Red Sox fan. Silly President Obama picking the wrong color of the sox.

    If you think his pitch was bad, do a search for other politicians and celebrities who threw out opening pitches. They make Obama look like Nolan Ryan.

    Isn't there some video out there of him nailing a 3-pointer on a basketball court?

    Betcha can't find any other head of state from any country doing that!

    Him being able to shoot the three means nothing. The man can't produce two winning brackets and misspells one of the schools. Therefore he is an unworthy leader for America.
