Barack Obama picks Tigers to win World Series
Asked [by Jay Leno] which team he was backing in the World Series, the Detroit Tigers or the San Francisco Giants, Obama managed to get in a dig at Romney: “I will say, I’ve spent a lot of time in Detroit lately, and I didn’t want to let go Detroit go bankrupt. So in this particular World Series, I might be a little partial.”
October 28, 2012:
Obama didn’t like it during the first presidential debate when Romney said, “You don’t pick winners and losers; you pick losers.” Obama didn’t like it because it’s true. At least this time it was just the World Series in the balance, and not billions of taxpayer dollars.
But now I fully expect the President of the United States to say, “Let me be clear. As I’ve consistently said, and you know this: Go Giants!”
