Tim Tebow says he will not endorse in 2012 race (Being courted by GOP presidential candidates)
The Washington Examiner ^ | 01/10/2012 | byCharlie Spiering

According to the Associated Press, Tim Tebow will not be endorsing a candidate for President in 2012.

Sensing the excitement and loving his message, Tebow is also being courted by Republican presidential candidates. The quarterback recently told The Associated Press he's been asked by more than one of the contenders for his support. He wouldn't name names, but did say he'd declined the offer.

"I think you have to have so much trust in who you support, just from product endorsements to endorsing a candidate because if that person or company does something (bad), it reflects on you," said Tebow.

In this field of candidates? Shocked.

Maybe Tim knows how to separate God’s Kingdom from the world kingdom. He may be in the world but not of the world.

Tebow has made the decision all professional entertainers should make. Why take a political stance and alienate half your audience?

Denver Post saying there was an illegal formation on the famous Tebow Pass.

Wasn't called, ergo didn't happen.

I'm still smarting over a couple of illegal Nebraska blocks on Johnny Rodger's punt return to beat Oklahoma in '71.

The politicians should be endorsing Tebow.

I am a Bronco fan. It is going to be difficult for Denver.

Belichick will keep his team focused on a game plan and won't allow them to get caught up in Tebow hysteria---there will be no locker room bulletin board material emanating from the Patriot's camp this week, no statements dissing Tebow.

Yes, a very wise decision. Politicians trying to co-opt something holy (not Tebow).

LOL!

If you watch Tebow long enough you realize he is a genuinely humble guy. It's no act. A lot of politicians could use a dose of his humility.

I always loved that song. (Child of the 80s) But for him to actually do a remake for Tebow, wonderful. I say great job John Parr..

Made up for the 3 blown face mask calls, 1 of which would have put Denver 1st and Goal inside the 5 and a lateral pass that was ruled incomplete not a fumble by Pitt.
