But sports is something else. The basketball either goes through the hoop or it doesn't. That's why President Obama's history of braggadocio regarding his prowess at hoops is having a potent effect on his overall public image, especially with those who are favorably inclined to him. The stark evidence of his 2-for-22-moment proves he can't deliver in terms that anyone who has ever shot a free throw can understand.
Worse yet, a clip has surfaced showing Obama's deep conceit about himself and willingness to judge others by a standard that proves very embarrassing to himself. Big Fur Hat of iOwnTheWorld.com received from reader Torey Dawn a clip of Obama pontificating to Bryant Gumbel on what you can tell about lesser beings from the way they shoot baskets. The short clip reveals in its full glory the usual patronizing smirk The Lightworker brings when he is putting down mere mortals.
