Smack spoken here

There are those who question the President’s ability to improvise a speech without electronic assistance. In his own milieu, however, he seems to do just fine:

You might recall that during the early weeks of his presidency, Obama attended a Wizards game and rooted for his hometown team, the Bulls. A vocal instigator, [Miles] Rawls, began woofing at the President. Obama waved off secret service and dished it right back. The two men spent most of the game exchanging tracer fire.

“I just had to see how he was gonna take it,” Rawls told The Washington Post. “Once I knew he was a big trash-talker, too, about them Bulls, that means the gloves came off… He was talking trash and I was talking trash. I couldn’t believe he was that laid back and real. I loved it.”

Just once, I’d like to see him on one side of the dozens.

    Too bad for him policy isn’t a team sport — and where he is, it’s not a spectator sport either (which is kind of too bad for the rest of us).
