These days, the “face” of Washington DC is a young upstart with sky- high expectations. But are we talking about Barack Obama or Robert Griffin III? Hell, even we don’t know. Things didn’t wrap up until 2 AM on Tuesday. We’re tired. Give us a break.
Tale of the tape
Barack Obama Vs. Robert Griffin III
|Since the Redskins lost last week, Obama was supposed to lose the popular vote (if you believe in that kind of voodoo).||Expectations||Was supposed to be a wide receiver. Or a smile model. Seriously! Best smile in the NFL, you guys!|
|B.O. ...oh.||Initials||Cool sounding nickname. Almost like a robot. "RG3." Neat!|
|Ran on a "Forward!" strategy.||Plan||Strategy: move forward by running. Also: passing.|
|A little less now than in week one, but…sure.||Gives Hope?||A little less now than in week one, but…sure.|
|“By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won’t end all the gridlock or solve all our problems or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward.” – Acceptance Speech, November 7, 2012||Remarkable Quote About Work||“This moment right here, it's unbelievably believable. It's unbelievable because in the moment, we're all amazed when great things happen. It's believable because great things only happen with hard work.” – Heisman Trophy Acceptance Speech|
|Probably getting yelled at by someone. Also, preparing for his 2nd term.||January Plans||Could be in the playoffs. But most likely preparing for his 2nd term.|
|Yes!||Friends With Jay-Z & Bruce Springsteen?||Nah.|
|HA!||Will Win Super Bowl In 4 Years?||...er...maybe?|
The winner is
