The Lakers visited the White House and president today!

ESPN: President Barack Obama has welcomed the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers to the White House.

An avid basketball fan, Obama says no team exemplified excellence on the court more than the Lakers did last year in winning their 15th league championship.

Obama said Monday he was especially excited to meet Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who has won 10 championships, though he didn’t hesitate to remind the team that six of those victories were with Obama’s hometown Chicago Bulls.

Obama commended the players not only for their athletic achievements, but also their work off the court. The players held a fitness clinic for Washington-area school children Monday, and several players are donating money to relief efforts in Haiti.

    I Love the LAKERS all of them but I am vehemently opposed to this President and his Socialist, Communist Agenda for this country. Make no mistake about the half black half white president, he is not a liberty loving freedom loving president. If he were why would he take government control of the American Banking System, Why would he take over and have the U.S. Government own and control 2 of the nations Largest Automobile Companies. And why would this Looser of a President want to take control of 1/6 of the nations economy health care. The Answers Lie in Barack Obama’s Book Dreams of My Father, and also in the book that all community organizers such as Barack Hussein Obama Idealized and Revered, Rules For Radicals by Saul Alinsky. Obama has not 1 time since he has been in office cut any tax not for anyone he has only put forth legislation to raise taxes since being in office you. I know the Lakers had to be there today for this Ceremoney but I hate the fact that this president this know nothing little man child who has no idea what he is doing, being the first President that of a parent who was black is the first to try and force America The land of the free the home of the Brave and of liberty and justice, he is trying to make it communist and give in to terrorist by giving the enemy of this county rights which under the constitution of the US is only set aside for Citizens of this country not for America’s Enemies. This man is an Abomination and he should be thrown out of office as soon as possible along with the rest of those bums who are in the democrat party that are trying to ram this Health Care of Obama’s onto the American people who by the way have with a resounding voice told him and his party we want no part of it by the Elections that have taken place recently, most notably the election of 1 Scott Brown in Massachusetts. The Bloom is off of the Obama Rose. The American people are not Socialist or Communist and we do not want what the Obama Administration is offering. I regret that these Guys my beloved Lakers many of them I can tell voted for this loser of a President I regret that my team has to go there and be a part of a Ceremony with the man that holds the Highest most powerful office in the world only to have it be diminished because he is a man whom hates America and has nothing but contempt for America and its founding documents and the founders, a man who continually puts down America and put forth policy that creates 10.4% unemployment when it was 4.7, who drags down the stock market by over taxing banks and businesses, and who will not call the enemy terrorist but who give them rights of American citizens.
    Yes I love the Lakers, and I wish them all the best and I want the team to win even more championships, but being a U. S. Marine I cannot abide this president who like me swore to uphold and protect the constitution of these United States, but unlike myself he has not kept that oath.

        • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

          Let me tell you what would happen if we had 8 years of Obama, you wold no longer have free speech ability and could not post comments on a blog. We would no longer be a free country and be able to live life and pursue happiness. And you DUDE, would be working in the rice patties working in the rice fields giving all you have to the almighty Obama government. And for someone who speaks and writes like you, Obamas Marxist Statist Government would take you from your home without any legal reason and through you in some Communist type golaug for being so goofy and I’m being nice. DUDE you have not seen suffering. You have not suffered through Bush. But I guarantee you 7 more years of Obama then you will see suffering in this country like nothing you have ever seen in life. And because The Laker organization is a Business and Obama Demonizes and hates American business there wont be a Lakers Organization they will have moved abroad.

  • 808ty

    varick, go preach somewhere else. obamas doin the best he can with what he can do, if mccain won you’d be just as fed up with him. stfu, this is a lakers forum.

    • gugy

      Well said.
      Bush brought this country to it’s knees with his economy policies, wars and all the other crap he did in the last 8 years.
      I don’t love Obama nor democrats but he is doing the best he can under these circumstances.

      • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

        If bush brought us to our knees why then are Americans sending Millions upon millions of dollars and our military is spear heading the relief effort in Hati. Not the Government but the people of this Great Country are giving. I know this is about the Lakers but you guys need to wake up our country needs its young people to be smart and aware or we are going to lose this Great country to ignorance and unawareness. I do not want to Break the rules here but I’m reading this stuff you guys are saying And I am really concerned, our country is being attacked and attempts are being made to completely destroy it from within not from abroad and this is of great concern. I love rooting for Kobe and the Lakers but I fear that if more of you think this way there will no longer be an America as we all know it.

        • gugy

          Look man, What Bush/Chenney did is on the record. If you think the two wars, mishandle of the economy, violation of the constitution and many other issues were not the problem, then good for you, I will not waste my time changing your mind.
          Obama has just one year in power. So he has another 7 to screw up to be even to your buddy Bush. Enjoy the ride and if you are a real American hope he will be successful because if he doesn’t we are going to the hole together again.
          I am finished and let’s talk basketball.

          • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

            I want him to fail. Obama failing means that America WINS.

  • http://TheLakersNation laffs atu

    lebron wont ever get to meet the president for as long as he lives… whats this, the 4th time kobe and dfish have been to the white house?

  • http://www.singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

    By the way 8o8ty Obama, No matter how bad leftist say George Bush was, Obama has inherited the greatest Economy on the Face of this planet and yet he continues to run it into the ground by declaring war on Businesses, and Banks and Wall street the same institutions that the American people used to make this Country the Greatest that has ever been on this planet. Also you lie I am no John Mccain fan but 1 thing is for sure John Mccain Loves America and has put his life and limb in harms way defending the constitution while Barack Obama’s cronies were blowing up Government buildings and he himself is on a mission to destroy liberty and freedom for a Statist Centralized Government. Now, Go Lakers, Kobe, Bynum, Phil J, Ron Artest. Goooo!!!

    • 808ty

      dude wake up, whatever your smoking get off that shit. The economy was set up to fail, before obama even stepped foot in office. The billions of dollars of debt doesn’t happen overnight. You should be praising obama and the people who have the balls to put themselves into dead end situations like this, and you saying he isn’t giving his life for this country. Stop complaining and looking for someone to blame, and btw china is by far the greatest economy on the planet, pick up a book.

      • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

        Then why are you still here. Move to China you creep! Get out of my country. An take the Bomma with you. Fool! This economy is in the shape it is in because President Obama continues to stifle growth in this country. Government does not create jobs nor Economic Growth it destroys it. Obama is not interested in Making America better He wants to Rule America and it is idiots like you who blindly walk around talking about he is doing the best he can cause of what Bush did and what he inherited, how long do you people plan on blaming Bush for everything that this guy continues to mess up since he has been president. This Guy has been in office over a year now, and all you continue to do is blame Bush for every mistake Obama has made since becoming President over 1 year ago. Well, if Obama continues as Our president you are right about 1 thing he will destroy this country until we are no longer the most powerful nation on the face of the earth we will become just another Banana Republic. Which is his goal. To make us just another 3rd world country so we can be liked by all the nations that hate us now. Unlike you, you Bone Head, mind altering substances are not needed for me to cope with life I live in the real world where people like you are few and far in between. Like I said, Since you feel China’s Economy is so much Better Lets get you on a 1 way ticket there. OK Dummy. The reason I call you a dummy is because you are. Most of us who really know, know that Americas’ Economy Generates Annually 14 Trillion Dollars/year while Chinia’s as of Today is only at 4 Trillion/year. You Dummy!

        • 808ty

          alright dude, i honestly didn’t read that. Simply cause i don’t care but maybe you should of went to college instead of joining the military straight out of high school. They got your mind structured fo real.

          • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

            I will match my University Degree and GPA up against yours any day. And oh by the way, it was the United States Marine Corps that paid the Tuition for that 4 year degree. So again you know not of what you speak.

        • SliqRiq

          Varick….. If I could I would like to shake your hand for real, the same thing you say I try to explain it to my fellow co-workers and friends some get the point and some dont.
          On another note…….Go Lakers!!!!

          • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

            My Man!! I concur………Gooooo Lakers

        • http://lakersnation showtime4eva

          ha ha where were you for the past 9 years while gas prices sored and unimployment was sky high.california is broke,obama didnt do all this in one year..bush did this,in his nine years,that silly hick did his best to destroy the world..this is the worst economy ever in history,and it wasnt achieved in obamas one year.it was messed up for at least eight years and i thought everyone knew that.. i thought..i mean if you gotta be racist atleast be real…not everyones blind or dumb..we know who done this and his name is g.w.b!!!!but any way this is about the lakers… not politics,unless its about a point guard we need..we are all about purple and gold!!!and this is all of our country..not just one race,but all!!!!!!!!go lakers!!!!!!!!red yellow black white and brown

          • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

            See guys this is what I am talking about. During all 8 years of Pres Bush, Unemployment only got as high as 4.7 %. It now averages from state to state under this current Administration at 10.4% and up. And for your information the president of the U.S is not in charge of setting the price of a barrel of oil or the price of gasoline those are commodities and the price is determined by the market. Get a clue man! And last I was at the pump gas was $3 and rising. And the reason you people in California have Such a high deficit and taxes is because you continue to elect Liberals to run your State and Local Government ever hear of Gray Davis? Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi. Dianne Feinstien and you now have a Republican Governor who is so liberal that he too is driving it in to the ground. You elect these losers to your local and state Government and you want to place the blame for your own bad judgment on Bush and the National Federal Government. Your State is in so much debt financial crises because you people keep electing lousy public servants. No other state in the U.S. has the type of failing economy that California is. Einstein defined Insanity as doing the same thing expecting a different result. Because of National media lies you place blame where it does not belong.

    • Chillax

      Hey, you white conservative loser, Obama has inherited the biggest mess the presidents before him have created starting from Reagan, chipping away govt. regulations over the corrupt corporations of this country. Do you think you can do any better than Obama? Go back to Texas and hang out with Joe, Jim, Billy, Bob and the rest of your incest brothers

      • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

        You Loser! Not only could I do better than Obama my 16 year Old could do better than destroying the great health care system we have and demonizing businesses and our financial institutions, and class warfare he is trying to bring about in this country. Idiot, what job do you have? Did Obama hire you if you even have a job you loser, or did a person that is part of that business hire you. If he has his way he will tax Cooperation’s and businesses out of existence, who by the way are the ones that crate jobs and wealth in this county not some Community Organizer thug politician from Chicago who has never met a payroll in his life. How is that HOPE AND CHANGE WORKING OUT FOR YOU NOW? You loser. And another thing you creep, what Obama has inherited is the Greatest Government and Economy that has ever existed on the face of the Earth, and what does he do, he goes around the world trashing this country putting down the people of this country. And further, you could not be more wrong about the things you say about me. Again you have no clue.

      • http://singoramalessonsrevealed.com Varick Hudson

        The Only thing you said that is correct is that I am a conservative. You Stalinist, Marxist, bone head. It never ceases to amaze me how you liberals leftist are always calling conservatives racist and yet, you are always the one who bring up race.

  • lakerman1

    I thought this was a laker blog when did it turn into i hate the president blog and besides the real problem is those who believe any man can make a change to the worlds problems. Enjoy this earth while you can my friends and since everyone is voicing their opinions heres mine, keep believing in the miracle of man until Jehovah tires of it all and Christ leads us to true Salvation where Love will prevail and all of the hatred along with the Hordes of Satan will be eliminated so for now lets just keep it about the lakers gentlemen.

  • fanbyNortheast

    i was just going thru certain websites about the lakes @ the WH and couldn’t help but to comment on this guy with real paranoia problems. you should ask why people in the major cities in the US don’t buy that whole “Obama is turning america into a socialist society”. you know where most of the money in america lies in, you know LA, MIA, CHIcago, NYC, Houston, etc. Don’t you think if we’d be protesting by now if that were the case, c’mon bro do you know in a socialist society the gov’t runs our lives and tells us what to be in life, what to do in life. that would mean some1 like me can’t go to these cities and Vegas to have fun, spend the money i make working on madison ave. and fuk around with the girls. if you think im going to stay quiet while some f-in gov’t is thinking about doing that then you nuts, just enjoy life. you should be happy that the gov’t picks up your health bill for you, if it were up to me i could care 2 sh*ts if you go broke paying your health bills, i ll be fine here in my “socialist world” lol… get a grip and stop believing stupid talking points that get people going mad and nuts. its not good for america, no matter who says it

    • daboss1848

      dont be so literal . . . in CA, our govt has just informed us that we can have certain fatty foods. In NY, its fatty foods and salty foods. Try spanking your child. There is definitely alot more govt intrusion over the last 2 decades than any time prior. Since when do bureaucrats know whats better for u than u?

      Ponder this: R u in control of ur own life? (Then y cant u end it?)
