Hoopster President Bowled Over

Hoopster President Bowled Over

He’s not even in office, but President-elect Obama has already flip-flopped on a key campaign pledge.

Back in April, he promised Indiana’s basketball-barmy voters he would rip out Dick Nixon’s White House bowling alley and replace it with a basketball court.  He carried the state in the election, but crowds of keglers cried “foul.” Now, a month before his inauguration, Mr. Obama has flip-flopped on this vital national issue

Hoops will have a White House home, but bowling will remain at the residence. The Bowling-Industrial Complex spared no effort in striking this compromise, and pinned down the President-elect by offering the White House a free new state-of-the-art bowling alley.

But was this 180-degree policy reversal due to the spirit of compromise, or was it inspired by … something else?

 Pastor Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church has a Bowling League Outreach Ministry.

    The new bowling alley renovation is going to be something else; all new scoring, seating, and a sound system built into it. It is going to turn heads from what I have seen so far.
