John Elway Endorses Romney
Weekly Standard ^

Posted on 10/01/2012 6:14:55 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway endorsed Mitt Romney ahead of Wednesday's presidential debate in Colorado.

“Governor Romney is a proven leader with the experience and background to turn around our struggling economy,” Elway said in a statement. “In these tough economic times, we need a president who understands how to get America working again – by standing on the side of taxpayers and small-business owners who do the real job creating. I am endorsing Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan for President and Vice President because I know having the courage to make decisions and tackle challenges is what leads to results and real change. America needs a comeback team – Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are that team.”

Good, I think such endorsements do work.

He’s very respected in Colorado.

Barack Hussein Obama & Co.....
... Are indeed all Socialists!

Time for Elway’s QB, Peyton Manning to announce his endorsement for Mitt as well. I’m pretty sure he is a conservative as he donated to Fred Thompson 4 years ago.

Thank you Mr. Elway!

I detest the Broncos but appreciate the patriotism!

Nice to see a man respected in a swing state push for a Republican. Nice.

Elway probably feels as dumb as the rest of us for contributing to Thompson's campaign.

Hope the reverse mortgage sham works better for him than politics. Washed up actors are the worst politicians from either the left or right.

The Drive

By the way, Elway earned a bachelors in economics from Stanford. How about you?

It's amazing that Stanford University produced a patriot like Elway.

"Washed up actors are the worst politicians from either the left or right."

Couldn't agree more! When I hear "conservatives" gush over the plastic faced Chuck Norris I take pride in my memories of Bruce Lee kicking his ass in the Coliseum when Chuck at least sported the face of an American male. Now he looks like Micheal Jackson's older sister with a red wig and I just don't get conservatives cultish love for this washed up Hollyweird clown.

People watch that scene and say Bruce Lee was better because he won the fight. What? Did they have two scripts and whoever won the fight, that’s the rest of the script they went with?

Elway is a morally bankrupt weasel who managed to get wealthy because he can throw a football. He is not as universally loved here as you think. He would do best to stick with football and not embarass himself by trying to run for office. Colorado republicans have much better material to work with than Elway. And I say this as a lifelong football/bronco fan

Just out of curiosity why do you say he is morally bankrupt?

His womanizing is legendary. They would have to pull him out of some honeys bedroom to make team flights etc.... Divorced his ill wife when she became a Christian. An all around nice guy /s

I have known several people who travelled with the team or worked the bronco charters. Not one had anything nice to say about him. He needs to stick to football and stay out of politics

He’s very respected in Colorado.

He's probably more hated in Baltimore than Bob Irsay.

Bronco fan since 83, hard time to be a fan in High School in the bay area, but it paid off for all of us Bronco billys as my friends called me during the 89 super bowl. 55-10 niners. BLech! But I love John still trying to get over his backstabbing of Tebow. This helps a little bit...
