Compare and Contrast

This YouTube via Kathy the Cake-eater of The One throwing the first pitch two weeks ago:

with W. doing the same at a Texas Rangers game in April:

I thought it odd at the time The One threw his pitch that a) Fox didn't show where the ball wound up and b) there was no replay. Another camera shot shows that he actually tanked it just in front of the plate and the catcher had to come way out front to snag it.

Dubya threw the first pitch when Nationals Park opened last year and I recall that he sailed one a couple feet high. The MASN announcers had a lot of fun playing with the replay and drawing a five foot deep strike zone in order to qualify Dubya's throw as a K. Good times.

It's so embarrassing to have a President who throws like a five-year old girl.

I am no expert on the Great American Pastime, but its obvious which of the Presidents actually played the sport...
