Always Humble Obama Lauds SF Giants at White House: “I seem to be good luck for them”

U.S. President Barack Obama smiles as he talks with Pope Francis during a private audience at the Vatican City

A shame he couldn’t be good luck to the rest of the nation.

The San Francisco Giants on Thursday visited the White House as World Series champions for the third time in five years.

In an East Room ceremony, Obama joked the Giants have him to thank for their historic run of success.

“They’ve got that even-year magic; they’ve got that championship experience,” Obama said of the team, which won the Fall Classic in 2010, 2012 and 2014. “I seem to be good luck for them.”

You didn’t build that, cuz.

Giants CEO Larry Baer said the feeling is mutual. In addition to the traditional baseball and team jersey, Baer gifted Obama a team-signed base, symbolic of the president’s strong political support in the San Francisco area.

“A third term perhaps?” Baer asked.

“Michelle will not allow that,” Obama replied. “The Constitution is a problem too.”

Since when has the Constitution been a problem for him?

    That’s funny he’d mention 2010 and 2014 as “magic” years for himself, since Dems took a “shellacking” in both those years.
