Gosh, why move it?

No one is expressing political discourse, debate or disagreement.

It is about pool and so what if the former President is discussed.

The posts have not been about policies or issues, former or current.

Sounds like you have your own agenda in mind for objecting to this thread.

I am delighted this thread hasn’t degraded into something deserving of NPR.

Cudos to everyone that’s commented because this is how the Forum used to be.

It's actually annoying as hell if you are on the other end and way louder then you would think. At least that's what my bosses and coworkers tell me.

Most of my conference calls from home during this ****ing pandemic are spent around the pool table with myself muted until I have something to chime in on.

Here is Obie playing pool. Banger at best...

Here is a blurb about pool playing Presidents:

The sixth President, John Quincy Adams had his own pool table brought down to the White House from his home in Massachusetts during his presidency and was attacked for it by supporters of Andrew Jackson in the election of 1828, for promoting gambling in the Executive Mansion. Ironically, Andrew Jackson was a pool player and had the reputation of being something of a pool shark as a young man. President Ulysses S. Grant was an enthusiastic player and had a pool table installed in the White House during his term as President. He often played with his close friend and principle adviser, General William Tecumseh Sherman, who was Secretary of War at the time.

Anytime a President can promote the game is a good thing. After the Americans won the Mosconi cup, Trump had a photo-op with the players to congratulate them. I think it was the subject of a thread here, and included a picture of a young Ivanka at the table.

Man I wish I had time to look it up but when a table was added to the White House for I think less then $100 congress through a fit and said it was frivolous spending. I think it was in the encyclopedia of pool.

I always like a high stakes ring game, but he's lined up a little right.

I like to see Presidents play because it indirectly promotes the game.

Obama was trying to save pool.

I believe he went out a few times to play.

Save pool, I thought that is what room owners do, tournament organizers and backers do and even celebrity pool players.

Jasmin Ouschan is well publicized in her country, check her instagram.

The only thing that will save pool is blue glue.

I knew he wasn't very good due to his eyes. You can see it in the eyes. His stance is good.

Whatever his skills are, it's good to see that he enjoys playing pool. A billiard room was an almost standard feature in the more luxurious estates in both America and Europe, so more than a few of the rich and famous are introduced to, and come to like, pool.

His forearm aligned vertically directly below his elbow is also impressive in the video when viewed behind him getting ready to shoot. However, his bridge is a telltale sign he is not a pool player capable of breaking and running out an 8-ball rack unless he was to get extremely lucky.
