13. This is the one that gets me

Her arms didn't work so well and she could not stand so the President kneeled down and reached out
to her to hold her hand/ I can understand being from a different point of view but god damn all those bastards
who talk all that crap about Obama because in the end he is really a nice man.

<Among those on hand for the event was Haley Klepper -- a ten year old girl from Waco, Texas with a rare disorder -- who through the course of the season became an unofficial part of the Baylor team.

President Obama made a point to pause and acknowledge Haley, saying: "[When] the team found out about Haley and all the stuff that she goes through every day, and she’s such a brave little girl, they immediately took her under their wing. So she has her own spot reserved in the Baylor locker room, and -- she’s a pretty big fan.">
