As a side note perhaps you could give the Japanese a bit of help while you fill out your bracket? What a leader.
As he does every year, the President filled out his brackets predicting the winners of the men's and women's NCAA basketball tournaments, but discussing it with Doris Burke of ESPN, he began with a call to stand with the people of Japan:
One of the things I wanted to do on the show was, as people are filling out their brackets -- this is obviously a national pastime; we all have a great time, it’s a great diversion. But I know a lot of people are thinking how can they help the Japanese people during this time of need. If you go to usaid.gov -- usaid.gov -- that will list all the nonprofits, the charities that are helping out there. It would be wonderful for people to maybe offer a little help to the Japanese people at this time -- as they’re filling out their brackets. It’s not going to take a lot of time. That's usaid.gov. It could be really helpful.

As for the brackets, they speak for themselves. He's not seeing a lot of Cinderellas in the final rounds and he's calling Kansas for the men and UConn for the women -- look at a large size pdf or check them out below:
So let me get this straight, the other day Obama bashers were bitching that he was out playing golf and not focusing on Japan. Now he is attempting to show he is aware and focused on Japan while he is doing something recreational. So one of those damned if you do damned if you don't kinda things...did I get it right??
