Political Circus: Obama as coach in chief

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.

Father-daughter day?

He may be dealing with a possible government shutdown and turmoil in the Middle East, but that's not stopping President Obama from taking time out for basketball with kids.

On Saturday, the president coached his daughter Sasha's basketball team, according to Politico - even though Sasha was MIA.

    Hey, " hillroy and Rick " , What is wrong with you idiots ? He was doing what most parents do in this country. Giving some time to his daughters school. He was on the list of volunteers and it was his turn. His daughter did not have to be there. He is not chained to the desk and neither should he be.
    Give the man a break. Oh, I forgot, he is black isn't he ?

    Hey Rick McDaniel, You don't think the children are part of the country? I would be hard pressed to think of anyone who is more involved in the running of this Nation, as well as actually caring about the education and future employment opportunities for our kids.
    Why don't you grow up and stop with the jr. high backstabbing.

    Well, you got to be fit-to-lead.
    President Obama has a very-well balanced and healthier leader than any American Presidents before him. Physically and Mentally healthier ended, with no down-time has been wasted for hospital visits.

    For future American President elections; mental and physical health must mandatory.
