Obama made a stop in Miami and started his speech off with “I know you aren’t happy with the Chicago Bulls.” He then went on to say the Heat will be just fine and congratulated the Hurricanes.
THE PRESIDENT: Now, before we get started, I’ve got to get into a sticky subject right off the bat. I know you guys aren’t happy with my Chicago Bulls.
AUDIENCE: Booo —
THE PRESIDENT: But I just want you to know the Heat are going to be just fine. They’re going to be okay. (Applause.) They are playing basketball the right way. The Hurricanes — they had a great season — no, no, they deserve a big round of applause. (Applause.) Tonight you’ve got Florida and Florida Gulf Coast going at it. (Applause.) One of them will go to the Elite Eight. So, let’s face it, Florida is the center of basketball right now. (Applause.)
But I’m not here to talk about hoops. I’m here to talk about one of the plans that I put forward in my State of the Union address — a plan to put people to work rebuilding America.
I wish I was there so I could of asked about that Summer 2012 Obama Classic game that never happened. Jordan, Ewing, Melo, Kyrie Erving and a bunch of other past and present players were supposed to be in it. I’m sure being in Miami and being asked about basketball is a lot more fun than being in Israel and being asked if we can have an air strike against Iran if they are building nuclear weapons.
