Obama Congratulates U.S. Soccer Team with Picture of Himself

Twenty-three men played for America on the U.S World Cup soccer team and not one of them appeared in Barack Obama's premiere congratulatory tweet.

While Americans exuberantly celebrated Tim Howard's World Cup record for most shots saved by petitioning that Ronald Reagan National Airport be renamed after him and altering Wikipedia to name Howard Secretary of Defense, the White House eagerly added another Obama-centric pose to its shameless storehouse.

Yes, it is fitting to see Obama with one of his daughters on Father's Day; however, is it really necessary to post his face for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, the anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination, Passover, George H.W. Bush's 90th birthday, and even the 95th anniversary of the Grand Canyon?

As we've learned through Obama's pen and phone stint and his countless executive actions, he's not much of a team player.
