Nobody messes with the Packers - not even Obama
The American Thinker ^ | September 8, 2011 | Rick Moran

Posted on 09/08/2011 12:19:30 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

The geniuses at the White House who scheduled Obama's speech on the same night that the Green Bay Packers were going to open their defense of the Super Bowl may just have cost the president the state of Wisconsin.

At least one Badger State NBC affiliate appears to be thumbing their nose at the White House and pre-empting the president's jobs speech in favor of airing pre-game festivities.

At least Packers fans have a reasonable perspective about what the president will say. They'd rather hear about how Aaron Rodgers will attack the Saints blitzing than listen to an increasingly irrelevant politician offer little in the way of hope on the jobs front.

Obama is not an American so of course he wouldn’t know any better than to schedule his speech same time as Packers.

The handlers for the President and planning staff....really screwed up on this situation. Their obsession about out-doing the Republicans is hindering their ability to rationalize even scheduling now.

If the 49’ers ever fold they could move the Packers to San Fran. They wouldn’t even have to change the name...

Wisdom and truth just keep on bubbling up no matter how many Liberals and union goons reside there, in that great state of Wisconsin!

Go Packers!

Hey President Zero,

You lost last year when the Packers beat the Bears.

You and your Union thugs LOST big time in WISCONSIN thanks to Gov. Walker and the legislature. You can keep the whiny loser rats that ran to Illinois.

Time to go back to Chicago with your corrupt politics.

GO PACKERS!

The televised pregame shows use related clips and talking points about the players and teams (and a lot of sold advertising).

Here in Houston, Texas, tailgating has a big attendance.

Maybe we can get the whole nation to pre-empt the nation’s Village Idiot.

Portage county has a lot of good GOPers & tea party people.

I know quite a few & for the last couple presidential elections worked with them rather than our Summit country group.

I get to Streetsboro on occasion for meals, friends.. and have several things not far from you in Hiram and vicinity.

we will meet! It will be fun!
