SPOTTED: President Obama Kicks It Courtside

President Barack Obama was spotted taking in the Bulls game last night in his new home of D.C.: His hometown favorite Chicago Bulls played the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center and the Prez was there in full effect. Sources say he sat courtside the whole time instead of in a press box, stayed the whole game until the final 4 minutes when the Bulls were 17 points behind, and kiki'd it up with fellow fans. Gotta love it. More pics when you read the rest... It was a boys night out as Prez O only brought along his hometown friend Marty to the game. And truckloads of security of course...

*Sigh* So much negativity,

*Sigh* So much negativity, can't we all just get along! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so let's stop tripping. Bickering back and forth with one another is not going to change the fact that Obama is president and can do what he wants. Oh, black people can we stop calling each other ignorant!

Love President Obama- he's great. It is not a crime for him to have some down-time. People need to calm down- relaxation is essential in a high-pressured job such as his!

Okkay, I don't know the great

Okkay, I don't know the great debate got started over whether the president should kick it at a knicks games or stay at the oval office 24\7 but the comments are killing me lol. I guess bush stayed at the white house everyday for 8 years & that's why he got so many great things accomplished. A ball game isn't neglecting his duties. Now if he got jigga on us & shit tryin 2 own part of the team then we might have a problem

If I were that little boy sittin right next to Barack I would probably be sitting way to close and cheesing in his face.Like a kid in the candy store or McDonald's. That man is way to fabulous (and sexy).

[quote comment="438136"]Oh and everyone thinks we are all "equal" now because he is in office. Yeah right!!! All of us people of color still have to work 2 times (if not more) harder to be on top of things, and that INCLUDES Obama. No one gave a damn about Bush because he WASN'T the first black President but an addition to the list of dumb white president. Everyone is really gonna get all defensive over some small comment. Shows how petty a lot of people are. Ignorance MUST be bliss. I never said anything bad about the president, theres just a bunch of people LOOKING for something to defend. Obviously everyone here is mediocre because they REFUSE to expect more.[/quote] Okay, I think the folks were basically saying that even the President of the United States can be like everyday people and enjoy a basketball game. I mean really, calm it down why dont you. It's really not that serious. I'm from Chicago and what I expect is to live in a country that helps those who need it. I expect good health care for all and not worrying about jobs being lost in the next quarter. That's what I expect.

No one (to my knowledge) attempted to personally attack you via comments before you decided to say something. If you want to express yourself, why not do it through constructive criticism. Firing out insults from behind a computer screen doesn't make you any better than anyone else. Don't think I'm attacking you, because I think most comments were getting a little too rude. I only commented on yours because I was sick of reading the immature ignorance plaguing the comments on this site. We are all entitled to our own opinions but there's a certain level of respect that must be met.

Its funny how you can tell the young know-it-all's from the mature people, the real black people from those who are frontin because there on a black site. Especially the comment about him not being all the way down because he is not all the way black. Every body that is REALLY in the black community knows that the amount of black in you is not what makes you down its how you identify yourself and relate to other black people which the President does well. Most of us know mixed people can be some of the downest people and most black people are all mixed up any way when it comes to geneology so that is the most invalid point up here next to the argument that the President can't do anything to relax.

Where is written that the prez can't live his life...there isn't anything set in stone about the presidency other than what's outline in the constitution. The prez is many things including human.
