Duke Basketball Coach to Obama: It’s the Economy, Stupid


Duke basketball coach, Mike Krzyzewski, tells Obama that he should concentrate on the nation’s economy instead of the NCAA basketball tournament.

Barack Obama picked North Carolina to defeat Louisville for the NCAA championship, a relatively safe selection for a trailblazing president.

Obama spent part of Tuesday making his tournament picks for ESPN, which posted his completed bracket online Wednesday and showed the First Fan filling it out with Andy Katz on the noon edition of “Sportscenter.”

Of course, the president’s choice drew a reaction from the Tar Heels’ most intense rival.

“Somebody said that we’re not in President Obama’s Final Four, and as much as I respect what he’s doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said from the Blue Devils’ first-round site in Greensboro, N.C.

Guess “The One” picked the wrong team.

Mike Krzyzewski has a point though……
