Obama predicts UConn in his women's NCAA bracket

By Associated Press

WASHINGTON >> President Barack Obama is predicting a repeat championship for Connecticut in the NCAA women's basketball tournament.

Obama's women's bracket was revealed in an ESPN segment Friday, the eve of the tournament's start.

He is putting two undefeated teams, Connecticut and Notre Dame, in the April 8th final. He has Stanford and Louisville rounding out the Final Four.

Obama says he knows it gets boring to keep picking Connecticut. But he predicts he'll be hosting the Huskies at the White House once again.

At last year's ceremony, the president promised Connecticut center Stefanie Dolson that he would take her on in a dance-off if she made it back.

He tells ESPN he'll stick to the promise, "as long as it's not televised."

Anyone who has filled out a bracket knows that it can takes hours. For the president to fill out both the men and women meant he spent mulitple hours working on something like this, not to mention the TV interviews on his brackets, when the world is wondering about Russia's invasion of Crymea and possibly Ukraine. How's that for priorities?

Maybe if the boy king spent some time actually attending his National security briefings he wouldn't be looking so stupid on the worlds stage with Putin eating his lunch. Stop with the laziness already and start leading Mr. Community organizer.
