But according to White House Dossier (link is to the article), President Obama is taping his NCAA bracket picks. What? Are you serious? Now, I have no problem with him filling out his own bracket. Shoot, I have filled out two so far myself. But to tape it to be televised via ESPN smacks of not only hubris, but of a President completely out of touch with the problems that regular Americans face. Back when the Gulf War was in full swing, President Bush was criticized for playing too much golf and having fun while people were dying in a far off land. President Bush felt it was inappropriate and stopped playing golf.
The question is will the press be as critical toward President Obama playing golf (he does all the time) and taping himself filling out NCAA tournament brackets while regular Americans are still suffering? I wouldn't hold my breath.
