LeBron James Hates George W. Bush

LeBron James Hates George W. Bush

Thursday, October 22, 2009 Jim Hoft

Lebron James at a Vote For Change rally for Barack Obama in 2008. (Zimbio)

He’s not the brightest person on the planet but he does have game. And, he hates George W. Bush. Maxim reported, via Huffington Post:

If there was one guy on the planet you could dunk on, who would it be? That teacher? If it doesn’t have to be a basketball player, George W. Bush. I would dunk on his ass, break the rim, and shatter the glass.

Evidently LeBron believes alienating half of the country is good for his career.

Lebron is a selfish tool in a league full of selfish tools. I don’t watch the NBA and this story won’t change that.

Let's see. $16 million salary, 4.6% rate increase (from 35% to 39.6%) at the end of Bush's tax cuts = $736,000 more to pay to Obama. Now, if Obama starts collecting SS taxes on every penny of wages as has been floated that would be an extra $986,000. And don't even get me started on what a progressive tax for Obamacare could do to your wallet.

Another reason why I stopped watching NBA basketball - soon to be followed NCAA basketball - years ago, and haven't missed it for a minute.

When more of your players are convicted criminals rather than college graduates, you're going to have problems. James is a classless child, and his behavior when being ousted in last year's ECF demonstrated it, as does this comment.

I wouldn't buy a NIKE shoe, even if it came with a free case of beer.

Yeah and I might add “useful idiot” albeit a rich one.

Thanks for doing the math Karl!

I’ve retired this year and “gone Galt”

Glad to see that LeBron will be helping pick up the slack, LOL

Oh well hell! All is lost, Bush should just resign now. I mean if you’ve lost Lebron, it’s all over. (What a putz)

People that are a LOT smarter than LeBron and a LOT better edumacated feel the same way. Hard to blame a guy that was just a high school graduate (and prolly got a lot of tutoring to manage that).

Shocking! I really thought he would be the one black athlete in this country who did not resort to hating a white guy, just to get Obama elected.

LeBron is a fool. Any serious person will tell you he’s going to pay much, much more in taxes under Obama.

I’ve pretty much had it with pro sports. I haven’t cared about the NBA for a while, and I just quit watching the NFL. I’m sure MLB and NHL aren’t far behind.

Why am I not surprised?

You know, after a while, there’s a reason why some of us are prejudiced to certain people. Our hunches usually pan out to be true.

Cleveland: our main export is Lebron James.

The classic, Hastily Made Cleveland tourism video. #1 in the google results for “Cleveland.”

I’d stop watching pro basketball, except that I already stopped watching it twenty years ago. I just couldn’t find a scrap of virtue anywhere in the entire organization.

A while back Rush Limbaugh went way out of his way to praise Charles Barkley thirty one ways from Sunday. Later to return the favor Barkley said some rather insulting things about Limbaugh.

I think it's fair to say that some of these professional athletes probably aren't smart enough to spell the name of the sport they play.

It’s like Charles asked in the commercial, what does he have trouble keeping shut? ... No, not his big mouth, his mind. The man has a closed, liberal mind.

I hope this guy makes a lot of money in the NBA, because when his playing days are over his high school educated mind isn’t going to take him far. He better be looking for some good handlers, because I’d hate to see him lose all that money.

Someone tell Kanye James to STFU and go back to entertaining us. That is all he is good for. He is a modern day court jester and is not expected to do anything but perform, on command.

#33...”Kanye James!” Good one.

I forgot who had this originally, but at the site...practically no one agreed with Kanye James...and that was in hundreds of comments. In fact, I think the only ones that kinda agreed with him, were calling out some of the disagreeing people’s use of racial epithets against K.J.

I would dunk on his ass, break the rim, and shatter the glass.

And while LeBrone is showboating W would sink one from half court for three.
