A Suggestion for President Obama

    The President seems to be having a bit of trouble with the bi-partisan thing. He keeps trying to meet the other party half way. They keep trying to re-define where the center is. Last time I looked it was somewhere in the 16th century. What we need is a little friendly competition on the playing field to re-establish true sportsmanship in the political arena.

    In Bolivia President Morales, along with his bodyguards and staff, challenged the opposition party to an exhibition game of soccer to inaugurate the newly renovated stadium in the capitol city of La Paz. Less then five minutes into the game the President received a foul from an opposing player that opened up a gash on the Presidents leg.

    He walked up to the player who injured him and kneed him in the groin.

     After two years of cheap shots and low blows from what used to be called the loyal opposition, I think a game of rugby between the White House staff and Fox News is just the thing to restore civil discourse to the political arena.

    Be seeing you.
