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.

Luke Scott needs to learn that in today's America if he wants to gain supporters and get their vote he needs to start handing out some welfare checks.

Screw this guy, I want a check and I guess you don't need to show proof of U.S. Citizenship to be President.

An idiot athlete - what a shock. Fact: copies of the birth certificate have been published all over the place - including by the Obama campaign - so how is that "dodged everything?" Fact: There were birth announcements in two newspapers in 1961 (and they are still in their archives). One would have to believe that in 1961 the parents of a mixed-race infant, the hospital he was born in, government record keepers and two respected newspapers looked 47 years into the future and conspired to falsify that baby's place of birth so that child could grow up to be president. Really,Luke? I'd ask where this moron gets his "news" but it's obvious that it comes from somewhere where the sun, both figuratively and literally does not shine.

So, the guy can hit a baseball but has a very low IQ. Why do we care what he has to say? President Obama misjudged the American people. He expected us to get the facts and vote accordingly. He gives us too much credit. We are an uneducated hillbilly nation and the ratings at Fox prove it.

Are you kidding? We live in a country where people are entitled to verbalize their opinions. Instead of talking about repurcussions for Scott, we should be glad that he had the courage to honestly speak to a reporter. The fact that the entire interview isn't posted here and the excerpts are used to portray Scott negatively should raise red flags for most people. This isn't really about Obama being born here or not, it's about honesty and integrity. Scott has both to be able to express his ideas in a society where the President has been the media's darling since his landslide election. Whether you love Obama or hate him, believe he is a natural-born citizen or don't, you should be able to express that without fear of being fired.

@Monkey: Are you basing that on anything aside Fox News? Why should we question Obama's birth certificate any more than sarah palin's? Facts have evidence to support them, right? We have a birth certificate. Offer evidence that it's fake and then you can actually state a case that doesn't sound like a Glenn Beck sound bite.

To Frank: um Obama was not born in America. He has a fake birth certificate from Hawaii so he could be president. It is NOT a fact, sorry to burst your bubble. Scott like many others has a valid point and can say whatever he wants. Everyone else does so should he even if they are not a popular one.
