New Caption Contest: ‘Obama Tweets Pic of Himself Throwing Football on Super Bowl Sunday’
February 3, 2014 - 10:22 am
Once again, our narcissist-in-chief has used a special occasion to tweet a photo of himself. The headline of our piece appeared in Truth Revolt and was linked to at the Drudge Report.
Here is the piece with the tweet:
Sunday, President Obama celebrated the Super Bowl by having the White House tweet a picture of him throwing a football:

President Obama said two weeks ago that he would not let his son, if he existed, play football: “I would not let my son play pro football.”
Obama has also criticized the violence of the game, stating, “I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you, if I had a son, I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play football.” He then said that football was like smoking: “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor. These guys, they know what they’re doing. They know what they’re buying into. It is no longer a secret. It’s sort of the feeling I have about smokers, you know.”
UPDATE: The @BarackObama twitter feed from Organizing for Action has now tweeted out the same photo:

So contest fans, do you think we can have some post-Super Bowl fun with this photo?
PLEASE, just try NOT to score too many “snarky points,” for the writers may end up in “Camp O,” (and that is NOT a football training camp with juicy steaks for dinner).
In other news, I am heading to D.C. this week to attend the National Prayer Breakfast and, as expected, our beloved tie-wearing, football-throwing First Fan and First Lady will be seen praying from the head table.
Therefore, my personal prayer for our next photo-caption contest is to be the one who receives the photo credit. But that will all depend on where I am sitting, because the event is held in the “mother of all ballrooms” at the Washington Hilton.
Meanwhile, does anyone want to bet that Dr. Ben Carson will NOT be speaking or even attending this year?
In case you forgot, it was during the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast when Dr. Carson spoke and became an overnight MVP of all Republicans after slamming ObamaCare in front of Obama. Watch this week as that all gets rehashed and replayed.
Have fun with this contest, folks, and be sure to say a “Hail Mary” for our football-throwing “Team Captain” as he attempts to throw a pass in this photo and then attends the Prayer Breakfast on Thursday morning with (I am sure) fully-vetted speakers.
