An article entitled “President Obama Smiles on Online Sports Gambling,” explains how he is disregarding online gambling laws and is showing a favor for online gambling:
As is usual this time of year, the hottest online wagering is sports gambling on the college basketball championship tournament. The latest fan to come clean with his picks for the March Madness brackets is President Obama.
Barack Obama showed he shares the people’s disregard for online gambling laws by appearing on ESPN to make his own bracket picks. The President has acknowledged enjoying playing poker, has shown visionary use of the Internet in his campaign, and now flirts with online sports gambling on national television. Observers say the future for Internet gambling and sportsbooks may be bright with Obama in charge.
Gambling on the NCAA tournament is not only illegal in all areas other than Las Vegas, it costs us billions in lost productivity.
