Barack Obama welcomes Green Bay to the White House (AP).

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The Packers visited the White House today in order to be congratulated for winning the Super Bowl, and naturally President Obama, a big Bears fan, didn’t mind commenting on the NFC North division rivalry between the two squads.

“I’m just going to come out and say it, this hurts a little bit,” Obama said, via the Green Bay Press Gazette. "You guys come to my house to rub it in. What are you going to do next, go to Ditka’s house?”

Obama also took some time for CB Charles Woodson, who you’ll remember said this after the NFC title game when Green Bay beat the Bears (Obama had already said that if the Bears made it to the Super Bowl, he would go to the game): "The president don't want to come watch us at the Super Bowl, guess what? We're going to see him."

Said Obama in response (you can see it in the video below): “Basically Charles has been giving me a hard time for several months. Now I know what every NFL quarterback knows, don’t mess with Charles Woodson.”



Woodson then presented the president with a stock certificate, making him a part owner of the team, which then led Obama to say this:
"If I'm a part-owner, I think we should initiate a trade to send [QB Aaron] Rodgers down to the Bears."

Which then led to the White House issuing a clarification, making sure everybody knew that he would want Rodgers to be Jay Cutler’s backup. Said the White House: “The President understands the value of having a reliable backup.”

Afterward, Rodgers had this to say to the assembled media: “Being a history major, this is a special experience for me. It’s incredible to be able to spend time with the president. It’s a special day. “

     Yeah, Kato.  I am union and I probably make more than you.  Call me an idiot for voting if you wish for Obama but what was the altenative?  McCain and the brainless wonder, Sarah Palin?  What a laugh!  By the way, who are you voting for this time?  Looks like you've got about a dozen people to choose from- wow, now that's LEADERSHIP, lol.


    Oh and I am impressed that you actually spelled everything in your reply correctly.  Did you hire a ghostwriter?

Obama: "So you guys play the Cleveland Browns on Saturday? That's in Ohio, right? One of the 57 states in this great country of ours! Look, football is a rough sport...I recommend having a couple of those Navy 'Corpse-men' on hand in case someone gets hurt!". LOL.

Whatever your political leanings may be, this article raises two questions that an inquiring mind just has to ask.

1.  Why is it that a quarterback from Green Bay is the one person at this event who is credited with uttering an intelligent statement? 

2.  When the ersatz leader of the free world issues HIS  thoughts why does the Whitehouse have to issue a clarification?

"2) Its gonna take a lot more time than 3 years to UNF**K the last 8 years"


Thanks to the `06 elections, when the democrats Took Over the house and senate, and their socalist agenda


"3) Bin Ladens dead, so he has in effect saved America, at least from that scumbag....you know the one that Ronald Reagan created/funded and that W couldnt find?"


And when O.North was asked why he thought he need a $60,000 security system, his responce was because of the evil bin laden, and that we should assasinate him, senator gore`s responce, nobody can be that evil. Nice one, Al.
