Luke Scott Slams Barack Obama, Hopes to Slug .600

by at . Comments

Barack Obama likely won't be selecting Baltimore Orioles first baseman Luke Scott in his baseball fantasy draft next season.

The power-hitting lefty gave a lengthy interview to Yahoo today in which he touched on the topics of hunting, guns... and the integrity of President Obama.

"Obama does not represent America," Scott said. "Nor does he represent anything what our forefathers stood for. This country is built on an attitude. It's a way of life. It's not because you're born here. It's not that you're supposed to take from those who have and give to those who haven't. That kills a country. It killed Russia."

Even if it were about being born here, Scott believes Obama would not be representative of the country, saying:

"[Obama] was not born here. That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, 'See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.' The man has dodged everything."

(Editor's Note.)

As for Scott's slugging percentage in 2011? "Anything over .600 would be nice," he said.

Work will set you free,not a welfare check.Earn your own way and people will respect you.A little work doesn't kill anyone.The best way to control somebody is to give them free money and keep them depending on you .Some people haven't noticed it yet ,but it has been going on since the Sixties.It's a hell of a concept,I'll give free you money and if you need more free money and you steal it, I'll beat the crap out of you and put you in jail.People who get free money and it doesn't matter what color you are,don't need to get an education or work.Just like bears in the woods that are fed by humans,eventually these animals will loose their need to hunt and get their own food and are eventually shot for stealing or killing humans for food.Just because someone gives you free money doesn't mean they care about you,they could be trying to control you and make you their slave.

Stupid, racist cracker. Any Black person who spends another dime supporting the Baltimore Oreole's should be put right on a plantation with Massa Luke holding the bullwhip! It's time for Black folk to stop sitting on our butts while these bigoted bullies loudly and proudly proclaim their prejudice and hatred with absolutely no fear of retribution. Remember - MLK didn't change a damn thing in the '60s..that was just public relations. White folks backed down when they got scared of the Panthers and SNCC and The Nation of Islam began scaring the snot out of their punk behinds.

I agree with Luke Scott ,he has a right as an american to express his own opinion.I also believe that us americans should work and earn our own way and not expect handouts from the goverment like animals at a petting zoo..Communism doesn't work folks,go to Cuba and Venezuela and you will witness the outcome.Dont sell your votes for welfare.

Actually Luke Scott's comments are an insult to the American people. That a nation which is governed by the rule of law should allow a "foreigner" and a "non citizen" to rule over them and to enter into the highest office in the land means that America is a nation of stupid idiots, unless if Obama is American then we can at least say that considering his ethnic background, his funny name, his muslim middle name "Hussein", his defeat of Hillary in the primaries and McCain and the republican juggernaut in the presidential election, and all that he has had to endure growing up in America as a minority and the obstacles that he had to overcome, then we can only conclude that Obama must be one of the most savvy and gifted politicians of all time. Whether we like him or not!

All of these idiot "birthers" need only ask a Title I kindergarten teacher how common "mothers' copies" of birth certificates are! I didn't know what it was at first, either...but it is a legal document, sufficient enough to get a social security number and enroll a child in public school. Google it, for God's sake and get over it!
