WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Nearly half of the crowd at Saturday's Elite 8 game
between Syracuse and Marquette at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
booed President Barack Obama when he was shown on the big screen with just
over ten minutes to play in the first half. After the boos erupted, a
contingency of Obama supporters countered with cheers.
Obama also golfed on Saturday for the first time since the sequester cuts
went into effect at the beginning of March and then took some of his
foursome--and his Secret Service detail--to watch Syracuse oust Marquette
and secure a trip to the Final Four.
One would have expected a friendlier crowd for the President, but there
are still several possible explanations for the boos. Obama and his White
House team had supported Georgetown (Syracuse's rival) in the past, and
the President had forecast Indiana (who was eliminated by Syracuse) to win
the East Regional and go on to win the national title, for example. Or,
perhaps they booed because POTUS had gone to the game with Secret Service
agents while the White House remains closed to tours.
The Obama administration canceled the popular White House tours citing
Secret Service costs. Throughout the week, Obama has been scrutinized
because of Secret Service expenditures for the First Daughters' vacations
to the Bahamas and Sun Valley, Idaho.
UPDATE: Twitterers confirm Breitbart News's report that President Obama

Barack Obama, reelected by the dumbest voters in the history of the United
States of America.
Eric Holder, racist black ***ing United States Attorney General, still

Obama continues his goal of disarming America while ObamaCare increases
