08:09 PM ET 03.20 | March Madness is right round the corner which means everyone is filling in their picks for this season's Final Four. President Obama's agenda after his re-election includes budget reform, ending the Iraq War, killing your puppy (if you're reading this in a shack in the backwoods) and picking who's going to represent this year in the NCAA's Final Four. Last year Obama managed to hit two of the Final Four teams, and he's back at this year with his predictions. One of Obama's teams from last year is a pick again this year as the President selected the Ohio State Buckeyes to crawl out of the Wild, Wild, West region just as he did last year. Ohio State marched all the way through the madness to the Final Four last year in New Orleans before getting ousted by the Kansas Jayhawks.

No one with a job cares what this guy thinks.

Tax on everything!

How about concentrating on more important things such as figuring out how to avoid furloughing millions of federal workers?!!!

Other than this thread being a free pass to upchuck cornhole political sentiment on FN, I note that the blurb atop this ill-advised thread fails to mention all four teams predicted by the POTUS to advance. I wonder how the Bucknuts feel about the distinction granted tOSU b'ballers by the threditor.

Anything but do his actual work---- this Flaming Kenyan still cannot spell Benghazi...

I have a job and make a great living, and I love the guy. I'm not so stingy that I can't pay a little more so the less lucky (and that's what it comes down to, LUCK) can live a little better. What I don't like is paying more taxes so the money can be wasted.

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. Everybody wants cuts until it effects their interests.

The others are Indiana (East), Louisville (Midwest), and Florida (South). POTUS picked L'Ville over tOSU in the Final Four, and the Hoosiers to win it all. As for the Prez picking the Buckeyes...he seems pretty savvy about CBBall. We'll see. GO BUCKS! GO B1G!

I am afraid that the point of this comment eludes me. Or was the second sentence meant to be a non sequitur?

So what? He took 15 minutes out to fill out a bracket, something he does every year. It's congress that doesn't work. Get over yourselves

March 21, 2013  12:16 PM ET

Kim Jong's bracket is better.

March 21, 2013  01:00 PM ET

House Republicans said it is dead on arrival. Ryan wants the whole bracket system replaced with vouchers.

If that were true, if Kim Yong Un actually filled out an NCAA bracket, it would be entertaining to put it up side-by-side with that of the POTUS and track them together through the tourney.

Yes.

I respect President Obama, but then, I still maintain some modicum of regard for Nixon. POTUS is a tough job, one I do not want.

Quint, politicos!
