Not only did the Detroit Tigers lose the world series, they lost spectacularly, with the Giants winning in a solid four game streak. I predicted this outcome a few days ago, not because I know anything about baseball (I don’t), but because I am familiar with the Obama curse. As Rush Limbaugh has been pointing out for years, if Obama backs something (a business, a climate summit, an Olympic games venue), it goes down in flames.
On Wednesday night, Obama appeared on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show. There, in response to Jay’s question about the World Series, Obama turned his back on the Golden State that has filled his campaign coffers and told America that he was rooting for Detroit’s team (keeping in mind that Michigan’s electoral votes are up for grabs):
I will say, I’ve spent a lot of time in Detroit lately, and I didn’t want to let Detroit go bankrupt. So in this particular World Series, I might be a little partial.
Once Obama voiced his support for the Tigers, their defeat was assured. The Giants played marvelously, that’s true, but they should also send a word of thanks to the President. Without the benefit of the curse he laid upon the Tigers, they might not have won.
Those Obama voters who are Detroit Tigers fans might want to rethink their support for the President. It’s really not nice what he did to their team.
