Obama likes Jayhawks over Buckeyes in March Madness

President Obama likes the Kansas Jayhawks over the Ohio State Buckeyes for college basketball's championship.

Obama, in his brackets released to ESPN, picked all four number one seeds to advance to the Final Four, and picked Kansas to win it all for the second straight year. (In reality, Duke won last year.)

This is the third straight year that Obama's made his picks public. In his first attempt, he picked North Carolina to win it all, and they did.

This year, Obama snubbed the Buckeyes, the number one overall seed, of the key swing state of Ohio. He picked six first-round upsets, as well.

His decision to release picks this year didn't escape Republican scrutiny, however.

“Millions of Americans will be filling out a bracket this week, but only one of them is responsible for signing a federal budget, monitoring the crisis in the Middle East and assisting with a major humanitarian effort in Japan," RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski said in an email to reporters. "With all of those pressing issues on the President’s plate, we would be happy to hear the White House explain why filming an ESPN special on the NCAA tournament should be a priority on his public schedule.”
