President Obama was in the booth during the bottom of the first inning of last night’s Major League Baseball All Star Game in St. Louis. Toward the end of his visit, the Prez was talking to play-by-pay announcer Joe Buck and color-man Tim McCarver about the fact that the National League hasn’t won an All Star game since 1996. One of them (I believe it was Buck) made a joke, asking, “No bail-outs for the National League?” Obama replied, “We’re out of money.”
Well, it’s good to see there’s one industry President Obama doesn’t intend to nationalize.
Tragically, the NL blew an early 3-2 lead to lose to the American League for the 13th straight year.
