Originally written September 03, 2012 on Diehardsport:
Everyone knows that Obama likes to play basketball and is a fan of the game. Obama is also known for using sports’ analogies to get his point across.Obama is quoted by a New York Times article saying, that he is the Miami Heat, while Republican nominee Mitt Romney is Jeremy Lin.“No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin.”It’s easy to speculate on what Obama means as he compares his team to the Heat. The Democrats are the reigning political party and the Miami Heat are the current NBA champs. (Should we assume Obama is the LeBron of the team?).But what does Obama mean when he says that Romney is like Jeremy Lin? Is he saying Romney’s a showboater? Someone who is impressive for a short time and then lets everyone down? Romney looks good on paper but can’t follow through?Linsanity was a big hit when he first made his mark with the Knicks in the pros. Everyone could only talk about him. Only time will tell if Jeremy Lin will succeed in the longrun with the Houston Rockets.Through the campaign season many people were talking about Romney’s showmanship and crowd appeal. If elected, only time will tell if Romney can perform in the long term.Are we talking Romsanity here?HT: BlackSportsOnline
