Obama takes in Syracuse-Marquette game

(CNN) – March is almost over, but the madness continues for President Barack Obama, who took in Saturday’s Syracuse-Marquette matchup at Washington’s Verizon Center.

Obama picked neither team to reach the Elite Eight on his NCAA bracket, which he described as “busted” earlier this week.

“I think my women’s bracket is doing much better than my men’s bracket,” he said after Wednesday’s swearing-in ceremony for the new Secret Service chief.

    Isn't it great to do anything you want at the taxpayers expense.

    Glad to see you and your wife and kids are cutting back on your spending of tax payers money.

    How about all expenses for Congress and the President stop until we have our jobs and economy back on track and cut your pay by 20% like we have to out here.

    why is a problem when ever this president take a breather. this is the most challenging job on the planet and these right wingers are so bitter when this president takes a breather. what they want is a stressed out president so they could get the opportunity to ridicule him about any minor thing that wrong with this country, and wont give him any credit for wall street record setting year, they don't want a relaxed president that is able to think logically. oh i forgot you cannot use logic in the present of a right winger. i guest this why they don't say too much when their congress people only works half a year.

    obama spends more time with celebrities, on vacation, golfing, campaigning and fund raising that he does actually doing the job he was elected to do. and we wonder why the economy is still in the crapper? this guy is a real sham.

    Here i thought he was playing golf, but a million here and a million there for recreation isn't a lot of money, not when someone else is paying for it

    Girls sent to the Bahamas and then to Idaho (with Secret Service detail). Back on the Golf Course (with Secret Service detail). At the Syracuse-Marquette (with Secret Service detail)... it's good to be king!
    Release 22,000 illegal immigrants, furlough meat inspectors, hit TSA to increase inspection times at airports, close off White House Tours, "make the Sequester as painful as possible"... Eat cake serfs! Eat cake!

    With all the complaining the rightwing fear loving teapubs do.....one would think they would want our president to take as much time off as he wants!!! You know not doing his job gives all you perfect world ,this is how you do it people a chance to govern. So your complaining is hallow,because the obstruction that has gone on for five years has done nothing to make our lives better. You need to take a vacation!!!
