Woodson signs jersey for Obama’s visit

AP

Fresh off his State of the Union speech, President Barack Obama arrived in Wisconsin on Wednesday to talk about the economy.

While he was on his way to a speech,  Obama congratulated the Packers on their victory, then did a little trash talking.

“I’m glad to see that one of the greatest rivalries in sports is still there,” Obama said.   “And we will get you next year. I’m just letting you know.”

(Insert angry “he SHOULD be worried about unemployment NOT sports” comments below. Because it’s terrible to have another President that’s a huge sports fan.  Simply awful.)

The Governor of Wisconsin greeted Obama with a jersey signed by Charles Woodson with the message, “See you at the White House . . . Go Packers!”

Last year’s AP Defensive Player of the Year talked about trying to win over Obama at his press conference Wednesday.

“I voted for him. Why isn’t he a Green Bay fan? I jumped on his bandwagon. I’m a voter, a taxpayer. It’s not fair to me.”

    You and 70 million others.

  2. He’s from Chicago and was an Illinois Senator. That would make it mandatory he is a Bears fan Mr Woodson. Which of course would make it even better when he has to greet the Pack at the White House if they win!

    Best you stay focused on hitting QB’s-politics is just not your cup of tea Charles.

    ROFL 😆

  4. Obama does like something about America! Sports! The Messiah will probably pick Pittsburgh…… Pa. has more electoral votes than Wisconsin.

  5. If I were him, I would spend $800 Billion to clone the ’85 team. At least someone could point to where the money was actually successful.

  6. The Governor of Wisconsin

    I see you left out his name.
    Here, let me fill that in for you.
    Scott Wanker.

  7. Breaking News: The owner of a Chicago Car Dealership has just vowed not to vote for Obama in the next election….

  8. I can’t wait for 2012 when this guy is out of office and I don’t have to hear about this stuff anymore!!!!

  9. Politicians and football always remind me of the famous John McCain campaign story.

    Before he was running for President he would tell his friends that when he was a POW and his captors asked for the names of his fellow crewmates he would recite the lineup of the Green Bay Packers. I believe he would say Ray Nitschke was the CO. I think this is the version that is also in his memoirs.

    However, once he started running for national office he would change the story slightly When in Wisconsin it was still the Packers. However, when in Pa. it was the Steelers and when in Michigan it was the Lions, etc.

  10. he’s probably a big fan of marathons, given how well his countrymen from Kenya perform.

    he knows Charles Woodson of the Packers now, which is 1 more player than he can probably name from the Bears (if his knowledge of White Sox players is an indicator).

  11. There is no problem with a President who is a sports fan. The problem is when the media, including PFT, reports on idiotic Obama tidbits, as if it is news. I don’t want to read reports in PFT that Obama is predicting a Bears victory, or “We’ll get you next year”. Give me a true expert’s analysis of some of the Bears’ strengths instead. And for God’s sake, stop reporting that Obama wants an NCAA football playoff. That just makes him like any other remote control hound who says, “Entertain me with a playoff”, to a bunch of 18-22 yr. old kids.

  12. @nitemare1,
    I suffer from deficiencies in hope and change.

    How did Tommy O’Bundchen’s cheekbone-enhancement surgery go? I hope you sent him a nice floral arrangement to lift his spirits in recovery.

  13. Obama told the Packer fans that if they came up with a Rooney sized campaign contribution he would name one of them Ambassador to Holland.

  14. “I’m glad to see that one of the greatest rivalries in sports is still there,” Obama said. “And we will get you next year. I’m just letting you know.”

    ————————————————-

    Barack Obama knows as much about sports as he does about running a country. So, take this comment with a large grain of salt.

  15. Breaking News: The owner of a Chicago Car Dealership has just vowed not to vote for Obama in the next election….

    —————————–

    He’s a small business owner, if he was smart he wouldn’t be voting for him in the first place.

  16. its so great to read the anti obama venom knowing full well he will be in the whitehouse for another upcoming term. look it up ditto heads. incumbents rarely lose. certainly not against the likes of sarah (oh what a pretty goddanm mouth) palin. id love to wack off sniffing her pantyhose.

  17. He’ll definitely pick the Steelers. He appointed the owner of their team as an Ambassador. He’s not picking against the Rooneys. Unfortunately for him, he’ll be wrong.

  18. So which side of the labor negotiation is 0bama on?? Apparently he’s sure there will be a next year…

  19. smootysmoot

    Sorry pal but you will have to wait untill 2016!

    Have you seen the vegas odds on who will win in 2012?

    Not looking good for you pisseed off teabaggers and brainless females from Alaska!

  20. ask him to name his favorite bears growing up like he named his favorite cubs. what a clown.
    if this were bush everyone here defending barry would be ripping him to shreds, including rosenthal, saying he should be worrying about the economy.

    cue the “would bush even know where green bay is” comments….

    No, we’d be ripping him to shreds over illegal wars, cronyism, the Patriot Act and rendition. They booed his a$% the hell out of Washington on Obama’s Inauguration (and that was a kind response).

  22. I bet Obama is more of a pro wrestling fan. The gregarious speeches about not much of anything, an extremely one-sided view of everything, promises about what he’s going to do… and then gets his butt kicked. I’m thinking he was a Ric Flair fan… or maybe the Iron Sheikh.

  23. Obamamania running uh wild, with all his uh little Obamamaniacs, the Obamaster is uh in the house and he’s uh going to lay the uuuuuhhhhhh smack down.

  24. Great news for the the Packers and everyone else in the NFC. Since everything Obama touches crumbles to dust, his rooting for the Bears is no different.

    Isn’t Obama a Bear’s fan?”
    0’s a phoney phacker. He’s a Bears fan just like he’s a Sox fan.
    According to
    The One, The Sox play at Cominsky Field so the Bears probably play at Soldier Park.
    Bet he can’t name any more of the Bears than he could the Sox.
    Can’t wait for 2012.

    Every other remote control hound? And you’re ridiculing Obama? Wanting an NCAA playoff is about getting rid of a BCS system that’s inherently corrupt and rotting from the inside. And as if the leeches feeding on these student athletes weren’t sickening enough, you have unsportmanlike blackballing.

    Competition is supposed to be about letting the best team win. In college football, there’s no logical system for determining the best two teams to play for the win. I don’t want to watch TCU or Boise, but they deserve a shot to win their way to the final two. Every other major college sport plays a tournament, why can’t college football?

    Don’t talk about Obama when you make such ridiculous statements about NCAA football.

  27. Every football fan should appreciate a president who is not afraid to publicly support his team. I would still rather go to the super bowl than vote for him.

  28. @silverandblack666

    Hahahahahahahaha. Whatever Douche! Barry Obama will not be President in 2016….. At least we better hope not.

  29. I have no problem with any President and the entire legislature taking the time to watch every single sporting event.

    The less laws they make the better. I mean, rape and murder are already illegal right?

    I would be more concerned if the local government management went AWOL.

    Think about it. If we didn’t have CNN, MSNBC, and FOX news, AND these guys took a 1 year off, would we know or care? No.

    So please. Watch every game. Take vacations. Stop “fixing” things constantly and let us plan accordingly. Please.

  30. Anybody that wants to talk about Obama can.
    Its a free country still. If you vote you can talk and have an opinion to boot.

    I am sure nothing anybody on this blog has to say about their personal political rhetoric is gonna change anybodys mind. Have at it if it makes you feel good.

    Pretty cruddy we gotta hear politics with the superbowl right around the corner.

  31. This is all good fun and games, good sport, well played.

    Coming from an Illinois resident, didn’t vote democratic.

    So, I’m not on team Obama, but still applaud, good sportmanship.

    We gotta lighten up a bit where and when we can, tough times have enough serious moments.

  32. Geez, another one. I’ve always wondered, why are all the sportswriters leftists? I mean, back in high school all the hippies/commies/burnouts HATED jocks and sports…it doesn’t make any sense.

  33. saintsfire Im with you! For a couple of hours every weekend I go to a happy place where there is competition , pretty girls, cheering and a good adrenaline rush. Then the game and season end and I once again come back to the reality of having to be an adult and deal with the REAL WORLD. Thank god for sports all we all would be running around the streets like in tunisia YeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
