If Obama believed in God, he would understand that this is just the Almighty’s long-delayed make-up call for the 2006 Super Bowl.

Where’s he finding time to watch football, what with his heavy schedule of View, Letterman, Beyonce, etc, etc appearances? Did he cut back on his golf or sofa time?

Kind of reminds me of the husband who proudly puffed out his chest and said:
“My wife and her staff make the small decisions like: what do we have for dinner; do we need a new car; a new house; which school do send the kids to; when should we go to War? ....and I make the big decisions like picking the March Madness Brackets, the quality of football officiating, the quality of the Police in Cambridge MA and who do we support for President......and I almost forgot, which golf course do I play this week.”

Shows what a hypocrit Obama is. The replacement refs are a similar program to affirmative action. Isn't giving the replacements tantamount to giving them “equal shot”? It's the same when you give a job to someone based on race, religion, sexual makeup etc. without regard to competence, education and the ability to get the job done. Let's face it Obama as POTUS is no better than the replacement refs.

LOL! I am from WA state and I fully acknowledge that GB should have won that game. IMO that was a blown call.

But then, the whole game was horribly officiated.

Can’t believe O even commented on it. Why does he even know about the stupid game?

Unfreakingbelievable.

Did he weigh in or was he responding to a reporter’s question? There is a difference.

Did he actually watch the game? Or did his teleprompter tell him to say that?

Precisely. If the situation had been reversed, and Seattle got robbed, we wouldn't be hearing about it from the president.

I’m glad he’s got his administration focused on the really important things.

Actually, maybe this is a good subject for his attention: it may keep him from endangering the nation in more important areas.

Hit the NFL in the pocketbook.

I cancelled my account to NFLShop.com and informed them I am done with this charade of an NFL season and will no longer purchase any more of their products and will be encouraging others to do the same.

Ryan has already commented on the game. He compared Obama’s incompetence to that of the refs.

I saw where Ryan commented. I don’t have a problem w/ Ryan making a comment...he’s from Wisc...he’d have some reason to know what went on. Although, I do have to say, I hope that Ryan and Willard are actually out trying to get votes and not sitting back w/ a beer and some pretzels watching Monday night football. (yes, yes, Willard doesn’t partake alcohol...just saying).
