EYE-BALL on – Political Leaders pathetic attatchment to Sporting acheivements …

Title:
Political Leaders pathetic attachment to Sporting achievements … Sam Stosur wins US Open…
I’m so over seeing the use of sporting achievements  used by Prime Ministers and the like to promote themselves and attach the sporting achievement to their own political buddy promotion.

It also happens when Defence Force  Soldiers die in combat – with much more somber outpourings …

Sam STOSUR’s personal achievement in winning the US Open Tennis final this morning was a great personal goal – and proving that the French Open Finals loss two years ago is behind her.

Sporting achievements are always a personal goal – the training and hardship endured in getting to the top in any professional sport is far beyond the comprehension of any Political Leader … in fact they diminish the actual achievement by attaching themselves to the event.

Where would they be if Sam had lost – would they have stood up and said how proud we all are – I think not – its a political ploy to be seen to be associated with winners – not losers.

The sporting success’ turn into media events on their own merits – Prime Ministers and other Political opportunist getting in the picture is the lowest form of agrandising their own agendas. They use it as a reason to stand in front of a camera – what would Julia Gillard know about Tennis?

There is a Sports Minister – and they are never seen nor heard of at these events – the current PM has no association with sport in general – did/does she even play the game – was she any good – what interest does she have in Sam Stosur – either before and after her tennis career started.  John Howard did the same when he was PM – and in a post PM role sought the International Cricket Commission (ICC) Chairmanship on the strength of his past political record.

Being a fan and a sports lover does not give the right of way for Politicians to use the individual achievements of sporting greats for their own interface with the voters …

    Negative prick, why can’t politicians support sport and verious achievements that does the nation good. You refer to Julia Gillard and deny her the right to congratulate on behalf of a nation a wonderfull success. You’d sware you owned Sam Stosur and nobody else would know the pain you two went through to get there.
    John Howard loves his cricket and would know more about it than you. Yes we know you played? That doesnt give you the sole right to judge others.

    When you personally learn to understand human nature and in turn humanity, then you may learn to understand that you dont “understand”.

    Just focus on the issues in society that can be impactful, not the obvious bandwaggon stuff that any politician is going to latch onto. Next thing we will have you saying that Snoop Poop knows something about rugby league, and we all know that is just not true, we only have to go back to his childish ratings during SOO to know he wouldn’t have a clue!!!!!

    You sanctimonious excuse for a doorstop – the point of the story was to highlight that we do have a Sports Minister – the grubby Senator Mark Arbib – where was he in the congratulatory process …

    Why do media give a flying fu_k about the PM comments on a Sporting Champion and their achievement?

    Question time started today and first off was the PM again attaching herself to Sam’s victory – then the Opposition leader got up and did the same – and them the Manager of Government Business in the House Mr Albanese got up to suspend further congratulatory messages but not before he gave himself a plug as a 35 year member of some Tennis Club and wanted to attach his own congratulations to the previous comments …

    Fuc_ off – Politicians attaching themselves to winners and high achievers is a lame as you can get – someone should throw a pie in their face every time they do it …
