Obama Fills Out Final Four Brackets

President Barack Obama's NCAA bracket has Louisville, North Carolina, Memphis and Pittsburgh in his Final Four.

The First Hoops Fan filled out his bracket for ESPN at the White House on Tuesday, sticking primarily with No. 1 seeds. The only exception was Memphis, seeded behind Connecticut in the West regional.

ESPN college basketball correspondent Andy Katz says Obama's
bracket will be made public Wednesday.

Katz says the president was up-to-date on NCAA news, including
injury reports and who won conference tournaments.

    To Rachel: In response to your question, the people up in the triangle. I will also say he needs to focus on the economy, not college basketball. That sounds like what some black president would do. I have noticed that not all, but many blacks will judge a university based solely on their basketball program. You hear a lot more about aahh Tar Heels or aahh Duke and a lot less about ECU or N.C. State or South Carolina or even Wake.

    To General Zod of Bell Arthur, I will bet some of that stimulus money that Louisville will win it all as well, over Oklahoma in the championship. Dave, as anti ECU, anti NC, anti NASCAR, and anti Southern, and Pennsylvania loving person as you are, you actually are talking trash about Obama? I would have thought you would have voted for Obama and all your crowd would have voted for him as well. I have a major problem with that so called president and his crazy wife.

    Who cares who he picked? Perhaps his time would be better spent working on some solutions to our economic problems...maybe something that does not involve throwing money at banks and raising taxes to cover the loss.

    JOHNNIE, why should we move? YOUR "Messiah" is the one who STILL cannot prove he is a U.S. citizen.And he is THE BIGGEST THREAT TO AMERICA TODAY! But of course since you're one of his little lost sheep,I guess you don't know any better.

    Let's face the hard facts of life. We are responsible for the economic mess that we are in. We take everything for granted. We don't prepare for emergencies like this. We over spend and we expect life to never change. We are employed only for 5 o'clock and pay day. Do not expect us to be a contributing employee just a paid employee. We are always complaining about everything. Where are the postive things in life like good health, love of family and God? Our President has been in office 2 whole months but our former President was in office 96 months. He is trying to fix the mess that both Democrats and Republican created. This recession is affecting the whole world and I do not think that there is anyone out there that can fix this overnight must less in two months. Focus on the positive and life will be much easier in this difficult time. I am looking forward to the NCAA tournament. GO HEELS!
