Packers make their White House visit, Obama wants Rodgers on the Bears

B. Obama AP

Bears fan Barack Obama welcomed the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers to the White House on Friday, and in his comments congratulating the team, he made special mention of Charles Woodson and Aaron Rodgers.

During the Packers’ run to the Super Bowl, Woodson complained about Obama openly supporting the Bears. Woodson used that as a motivational tool then, and Obama mentioned it today.

“I gave Charles a little bulletin-board material last year,” Obama said of his vocal support of the Bears. “Charles said if the president doesn’t want to come watch us at the Super Bowl, then we’re going to him. . . . Charles, you’re a man of your word. And I’ve learned something that every NFL quarterback knows: Don’t mess with Charles Woodson.”

In his address to the team, Obama noted the special relationship that the Packers have with Green Bay.

“Today 112,000 people own a piece of this franchise — it is the only publicly owned team in pro sports,” Obama said. “Even a Bears fan can admit that the relationship between Green Bay and its team is something special.”

Woodson then presented Obama with a stock certificate making him a team shareholder. That gave Obama a chance to congratulate Rodgers — and take a shot at Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

“If I’m a part owner,” Obama said, “I think we should initiate a trade to send Rodgers down to the Bears.”

    Poor cutler. First MJD and now the president

    WOW.
    Someone pull the knife outta Cutler’s back.

    That one’s gonna leave a mark.

  3. scudbot says: Aug 12, 2011 3:20 PM

    For what? The entire Bears roster? No thanks. BTW, it probably would not be a good idea for the Prez to bring that up at next year’s meeting.

    I think it’s safe to say Rodgers > Cutler….

    Even a Bear fan can admit that.

    However, that’s more of a props to Rodgers than a knock on Cutler. After an NFC Championship appearance, it’s safe to say that Chicago is extremely happy with their QB situation.

    A better idea: trade Cutler back to Shanny for some turf.

  13. Grulks says: Aug 12, 2011 3:27 PM

    Can we fine Obama for Tampering? Say in the neighborhood of $7,000,000,000,000…..

  14. schemefactory says: Aug 12, 2011 3:28 PM

    what a goon. i think obama would make a better qb than quitler, though.

  15. shaggytoodle says: Aug 12, 2011 3:28 PM

    I wonder how much Obama was bashing Cutler in the NFC title game.

  16. mrblazino says: Aug 12, 2011 3:28 PM

    Hats off to rodgers, but I wouldnt trade cutler for rodgers, sorry……GO BEARS……….SUPER HUNGRY!!! I know haters will but I’m loyal and live in reality, one game from the bowl, he can get it done, you all will BEAR WITNESS!!X

    Until the 2nd half of that game, then had no clue what do to about thier QB situation, they botched it up so bad that the league wound up changing the rules.

    Once more, congratulations to the Packers and their fans! As a Viking fan, I hope that I will be able to see my team invited to the White House to celebrate their championship one day!!

    As coach Bud Grant says, “Boys’, I ain’t getting any younger!!”

    I think it was a little reverse psychology from the pres, he was giving Cutler bulletin board material, no one on the bears will figure that out.

  33. gpete1962 says: Aug 12, 2011 3:42 PM

    I hope that wasn’t a voting share they gave him !!

  34. cadillacjosh says: Aug 12, 2011 3:43 PM

    Cutler represents the best thing we’ve had at QB for my entire lifetime. That said, Rodgers in a Bears jersey would be awfully sexy.

  35. eaglesfan290 says: Aug 12, 2011 3:44 PM

    I’d be pretty happy if I was Cutler, Obama has been wrong about everything else I would just take it with a grain of salt!

    If his plan for the Country is an indication of how he would run the Bears………….I would say Ehhh who cares!

  36. philwauke says: Aug 12, 2011 3:45 PM

    Well if Obama handles the bears like he handles the country then Cutlers in no danger. He’ll probably get an extension too.

  37. vikescry1 says: Aug 12, 2011 3:47 PM

    oh yeah, and of course a bears fans would want rodgers over cutler. bears passed on rodgers in the draft and he could be there qb right now! thank god the bears front office is full of— smart people…..(wink,wink) didn’t they try to draft james starks to, and then cancelled on him after they told him they were drafting him? lol sorry prez you had your chance.

  38. rcali says: Aug 12, 2011 3:48 PM

    Ouch. The only logical comeback for Cutler would be to suggest trading out the prez.

  39. glac1 says: Aug 12, 2011 3:49 PM

    As a stockholder, I’m appalled that we would just give him a share.

  40. voiceofrealism says: Aug 12, 2011 3:50 PM

    Certainly our country would have been better off!

  45. macjacmccoy says: Aug 12, 2011 3:55 PM

    God Obama is so corny. Every time a sports team goes to the white house he says something about wanting some good player on that team to come play for a Chicago team.

    Ok we get it your from Chicago, or at least you moved their after being born in Africa, and you like Chicago sports. You dont have to make the same dumb jokes and follow it with the same dumb laugh after every couple of months .

    (j/k about the Berther)

  47. jsrdc says: Aug 12, 2011 4:00 PM

    Even the President of the United States thinks Cutler is a huge Sally. He wants better for his hometown pro football team, and somebody who won’t quit when it counts. Can’t blame him.

  48. spungy says: Aug 12, 2011 4:00 PM

  52. stavreafavre says: Aug 12, 2011 4:10 PM

    Republicans in the House of Representatives immediately announced that there would be no trade and called on the President to lower taxes on team owners in order to create more player jobs.

    ________________________________

    Fluke or not (and it wasn’t – they were the best team in the playoffs AND in the SB), the Packers are the defending champs. Rodgers, like Cutler, has a strong arm, but unlike Cutler, he is already arguably an elite QB, and make sure you read this part carefully – Rodgers never quits.

    virusgvr,

    is the President NOT supposed to have any fun? and btw, it is tradition for the SB champs to do this every year. There is ALWAYS more the politicians could be doing, like serving the public, which they haven’t effectively done since the 1800’s. It has been all about serving themselves and their special interest groups for far too long. In the meantime, the President should be able to have some laughs AND voice his opinion in the meantime. Unless you have Brady or Eli Manning on your team, Rodgers would virtually be welcomed on any roster by most fans.

    You’re right, Deb. I don’t really know how intelligent Obama is, because he’s never released any of his Occidental College records, Columbia University records, or Harvard Law School records. I guess I just assumed that he wasn’t that bright because of the complete and utter failure of every one of his policies. I hate to think that he knows exactly what he’s doing as he destroys the country.

    Besides, I had to say that or the joke wouldn’t work.

    Kind of negative, aren’t you?

    It might interest you to know that the Tea Party does not run the Republican party. If they did, that ridiculous debt ceiling deal would never have passed. Every tea party representative voted against it. What you fail to understand is that compromise between two sides that disagree completely about how the country should be run will not accomplish anything good. Both sides can’t be right. If one side is right and the other side is wrong, compromise is wrong. If both sides are wrong, compromise is wrong. Compromise works for a business deal, not for running a country.

    By the way, the Tea Party came into existence after two years of Democrats controlling the House, Senate, and presidency. Although the Tea Party elected a lot of representatives in 2010, they still have no real power because there are still more liberal Republicans and Republicans only control the House anyway. The state of the country right now has absolutely nothing to do with the Tea Party’s willingness to compromise.

    Funny, Cutler takes the Bears to the NFC championship game in his second year with the Bears and everyone is jumping down his throat. When was the last time the Bears had a QB worth two sh#ts?

    Questioning his toughness? I went to Vanderbilt and I saw how his inadequate line got him killed nearly every game and he single handedly willed the team to win, in the SEC no less.

(Although I don’t recall examining any other candidate’s school records before casting a vote :roll:) You may vehemently disagree with the man’s policies. But no rational person could deny his intellect. Now enough of this. It’s a football blog.

    ==================================
    Hey Mr. “shareholder”

    Packer fans are the definition of homers.

    How can you have the stones to call someone else out for it.

    The only logical Illinois to Wisconsin trade would be Barack Obama for Paul Ryan. That wouldn’t help the Bears to the SB, but it might save the country.

    Aaron had the game of his life. No matter what you think of the president, who wouldn’t wan Aaron on their team after that display. Lighten up and go to your favorite right or left wing corners to talk about politics.
    BTW..Paul Ryan..really..get rid of medicare and give more tax cuts to the wealthy.. geez…

    That is going to be an AAAAWKWARD moment when Cutler is standing in the White House next year this time.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Green Bay already has a competent backup quarterback.

    Cutler would’ve, should’ve, could’ve been in the WH, but he had to sit down and rest his knee.

  98. MichaelEdits says: Aug 12, 2011 9:41 PM

    Maybe Cutler can use that for motivation. Or maybe he’ll collapse and the Bears will sign Favre.

    @infinity if last years superbowl was a fluke, what would you call a football season filled with playing against 2nd and 3rd string qb’s. filled with very few injurie’s and a blown touchdown call to give you the win of a division game? ummm yeah that would be considered a fluke.

    When you can learn to spell or type I can answer you. Until then keep on trying to prove to be intelligent with warped logic like most packer fans talking trash on here.”

    GRAMMAR FAIL

    This is too ironic . . .

    @thephantomstranger …

    Out of deference to the people who come here for football and have the good sense to go to political blogs to rant about politics, I’m not getting into a bunch of political silliness. (Although I don’t recall examining any other candidate’s school records before casting a vote ) You may vehemently disagree with the man’s policies. But no rational person could deny his intellect. Now enough of this. It’s a football blog. If I wanted to listen to this stuff, I’m smack in the middle of one of the reddest, tea-drinkingest areas in the nation. I could just walk out the front door and whistle.

    You started it. I made a cute joke ripping on Packer fans and you insulted my intellect. Maybe my definition of intellect differs from yours, but it takes a lot more than being able to read off a teleprompter to impress me.

    Listen, the President’s job is to do these things.
    I am sure a Bears fan would rather eat glass than celibrate a Packer victory; but it’s his job to greet champions, heads of other countries, and even charity organizers.
    Even Reagan threw a party for the Redskins (and a pass to ricky Sanders) when we were in a recession.
    Let it go, and if you can’t… go to anther site!

    Well, at the very least Obama proved he’s a better personnel man than Jerry Angello. Maybe the Bears should give him ownership privileges.

    @thephantomstranger …

    I didn’t start anything. You were ripping the President’s intellect on a football post. You injected politics into the discussion. And my comment was conditional–if you believe that, you’re not the sharpest tool in the drawer. Now quit whining.

  104. assassins14 says: Aug 13, 2011 3:24 PM

    You would think he would be to busy screwing up our country to have time to even think of ways to screw up our football team….prediction Rodgers will miss 40 percent of season with concussion realted issues.

    Why do conservative/republican types always think everyone else wants to hear their political views?

    Rule #1 of polite conversation: leave politics and religion out of it. The only people who want to hear your opinion are the people who already agree with you.

  106. 1historian says: Aug 15, 2011 10:11 PM

    FYI – I am not now, never have been and never WILL be a fan of President Obama.

    That having been said – silly stuff like this is one of the perks of the gig, it seems a good time was had by all, etc. so just get over it, or get a laugh out of it, or whatever.
