    People are willing to settle for Obama for four more years rather than giving crazies like Rick Perry, Bachmann the seat the the oval office. With the clueless Tea Party in play I guess anything is possible.

    Georgetown’s tour through China turned ugly Thursday when a game between the Hoyas and the Bayi Rockets, a Chinese professional team, ended in a bench-clearing brawl.

    Mex Carey, Georgetown’s sports information director, told ESPN.com that the game was “very physical,” with 57 free throws taken by Bayi to just 15 for Georgetown, and quickly spun out of control.

    According to the Washington Post, coach John Thompson III pulled his team off the court with the score tied at 64 midway through the fourth quarter after the teams exchanged punches. One Hoyas player, Henry Sims, was reportedly hit by a chair.

    The Hoyas dodged water bottles and other objects thrown from the stands as they made their way to the locker room. Carey said one Georgetown fan in attendance was knocked to the ground after being hit by a bottle.

    Yeah most people forgot what Obama has done lately. Obama doesn’t brag enough and he lets others run wild with his rep. Some people think Obama initiated the first TARP stimulus….

    It going to be a dog fight…

    Obama fortunate that the republican candidates are so weak and radical

    b/c he done NOTHING to deserve a second term

    what other justification for voting for Obama other than the candidates being a worst alternative.

  29. rex hussla Says:

    Ain’t it crazy that the rich are getting the biggest tax breaks they’ve ever received, they have record profits and are just sitting on all their cash and manipulating the stock market because they are “afraid” to invest in America?

    I thought that’s why they were getting the breaks, to be job creators. That’s like the Republican bread and butter. SMH at these greedy bastards.

    When it comes down to election time, and when the debates are taking place, Obama will be head and shoulders (no itchy scalp) above whoever the R’s run out there. It’s obvious that whoever is running against him was down to let the country default, they want to break up unions, but have fought to keep the rich’s tax breaks. Even the rich say they need to be taxed.

    but that’s been every election I’ve ever voted in…Obama was so appealing because the Bush years were so terrible.

    @ Previous NBA talk:

    Lakers + Howard aren’t going to win next year (if there is a next year). Orlando won’t give him up unless Bynum, Gasol and Odum plus whatever else is offered.

    Kobe & Howard can’t beat Miami or New York and that is if they win the west

    OKC., Mavs and hopefully Portland will dominate on the left coast

    No president will be effective if he doesnt get his party to control the House & Senate. Put any of those Republican/Tea Party in the White House and it’ll be more inaction cause the Democrat Senate wont let nothing through.

    Same way House Republicans do now.
