WWOS: Who Would Obama Support?

Say it ain't so, B.O.!!"

Bigus again with the magical photo work

There's been some speculation-- that's to say, full-throated debate, hair-pulling, and name-calling-- in these quarters over what footy club the President of the United States would/should/does support.

In his column for the NYT Monday, George Vescey referenced Mr. Obama's [loose] ties to West Ham. But that's hard for a lot of us here to swallow. This president isn't blowing anything... least among them, Bubbles. Forever. And we can say, though I'll have to confirm with GBWTF, that his style sense is about 3,745 notches above your classiest Hammer chav.

Join me for some baseless speculation... after the jump!

So what is it really for El Presidente?

We know Mexico and South America are weighing heavily on his mind these days, and given his concern about access to higher education, might he be on the blackberry right now finding the best price for the new Estudiantes strip?

Or, given his success with the latino electorate in SoCal, perhaps there's a Chivas scarf in his closet?

He seems pretty popular in Germany-- could Mr. Obama be a closet Hertha freak?

The President has been derided in some trog righty circles as being too quick to please Europe. So, as far as pleasing in Europe goes, would it be so far-fetched to suspect he has a soft spot for the Nou Camp Catalans? They're clever, successful... beautiful to watch...

Uncle Leo Wants You!

And then there's always the possibility that Barack's African, Southeast Asian, and Muslim roots have pointed him toward the likes of Hearts of Oak or Haras El Hodoud.

Just some test balloons here. So what is it UF, who does the president support? Who should he support? Please back up your opinion with some implausible-yet-empirical evidence!

p.s. He's not, nor would he ever be a Gooner. It's a weak argument, so don't bother.

what's with the reversed Angola scarf in the Hertha picture?

He'd be a Fulham fan. They're the only EPL team to give a toss about American players, and if he's to keep making nice with the Arab world, he'd do well to snuggle up with the OG of Arab-owned teams.

Oh, and I wish I could get a bigger pic of the Obama in front of the crowd because I can see some photoshop work in it but can't quite make out the faces.

TFA-- your imagination runs wild. The only 'shopped images are the tracksuit and the Estudiantes shot

Then that's the fakest German crowd photo in awhile.

Doesn't the US, ergo Obama, own Manchester Utd?

If Obama were a ManU fan, I'd withdraw my support forthwith from his administration. Because my support is so important to his administration.

Newcastle or Juventus.
