I find it maddening that Barack Obama again is allowing himself to be distracted from some of the most serious issues to plague the country in decades in order to fill out his bracket for the NCAA basketball championships.

Tell you what, Mr. President. Once you solve the crippling issues that have sent our country to its knees, then perhaps I could accept you lollygagging around the office, lacing on the sneakers to shoot a very flat jumpshot which always clanks off the rim to the left and spending time penciling in teams you feel will advance through the tournament.

What scares me more is if Obama actually has the knowledge to select a great bracket. Very few aside from basketball junkies and experts can pull this off, so if Obama can, then I fear he has spent far too much time watching college basketball on Saturday afternoons.

Again, perhaps it’s just me, but I would be much more comforted if Obama knew more about who could win between Iraq and Syria, than Creighton and Alabama...
