Obama: ‘The Heat’ to Romney’s Jeremy Lin?

Loose Ball: Obama says he'll douse Mitt Romney like Miami snuffed out Linsanity in February.

“This is my dream team,” Obama said. “It is very rare I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most-interesting person. Usually people want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. That has not been the case at this event.”

He had more success at that event than Lin had in Miami. And if Obama has his way, Romney will have a worse time when the polls close in November.
