These guys enjoy a good deal of pampering as it is, and thus President Obama apparently felt no remorse in enlisting Kobe Bryant and his fellow NBA champs from the Los Angeles Lakers to spend a day serving the D.C. community rather than resting on their nest of laurels. Obama announced his plans for the visiting b-ballers at a news conference Monday at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington.  —KA

Odd.  I thought the Lakers already had jobs.  Pretty
well-paying ones, too.  Now, if our Republican
president had begun a WPA, that might be worthy of a
news report, but this?

As is said in Texas, Obama is all hat and no cattle.

Boy, that just has to be a religious moment for
those boys and girls waiting in unabated
anticipation for those monuments to civilization,
oh, and the u.s.

If this is o’s contribution of ‘feel good’ events,
why not get the boys and girls to meet the
‘champions of poker’ and go a few rounds with
them.

Pretty sad how Truthdig reports on this as if it were some sort of important, serious action being taken.
