Somehow President Barack Obama managed to fill out his men's NCAA college basketball tournament bracket. Talk about priorities!
Here's a little fun fact about the president went it comes to his budgets versus his brackets. In the first five years he's been in office, Obama has submitted a budget on time just once -- back in 2010. As for his tournament brackets, they've been on time all five years.
At least he's consistent in one area.
So in honor of the president's preference for brackets over budgets, I decided to put together my own bracket, called "Obama Madness."
Here's how it works, instead of regions, we have categories and instead of 64 teams, we have 64 of the worst things Obama has said, done, or proposed. The four main categories are budget, big government, economy and the best of the rest.
The top seed in each of the categories are the following:
- Budget: Obama’s 2009 promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of the his first term.
- Big government: Obama’s promise that under ObamaCare, Americans could keep their doctors.
- Economy: Obama jokes that the shovel ready jobs he promised, weren’t so shovel ready after all.
- Best of the rest: Obama’s pledge to be the most transparent presidency in history
If your picks match up with mine, you'll be entered to win a tour of the White House. Oh wait, Obama canceled those. Sorry, you can play along for fun. There's no prize involved.
For my online fans on TheBlaze, we'll be using an interactive polling tool that allows you to submit what you consider to be one of the worst things Obama has said, done or proposed. Please do this in the form of a yes/no question -- the questions that get the most "yes" votes may get a mention on my show (which airs on TheBlaze TV Monday- Friday at 7pm ET).
I'll kick off this interactive poll by adding the first question:
