He regrets not taking on the President in the 2004 for Illinois Senate seat: “He probably wouldn’t be in the White House”

Gruff Mike Ditka, the former head coach of the National Football League’s Chicago Bears and a commentator for ESPN, wishes he had called one more running play.

Specifically, he said this week that he regrets not running against President Obama in the 2004 Illinois Senate race and called it “the biggest mistake I’ve ever made.”

I wish he had too. His decision not to run could turn out to have been a fatal blow to America.

I wish. But the realistic side of me says maybe Mike should get checked for concussions.

As I recall, Zero always got elected by election law trickery used to kick viable opponents off the ballot.

Ditka would have had to have the future seeing Mr. Perfect legal team to out maneuver Chicago Organized Crime DemoRat Commie politics.

Yeah. I guess when those who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living, “what difference does it make?”

The NSA would just have supplied Ubama with whatever information he needed to bring Ditka down.

If he had run Osama Obama’s wrecking crew would have concocted some drug allegation or an accusation of kiddie porn.And then Chrissy Thrills & Pals would have rum with it.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. Does ditka need 2 more minutes of fame that he comes out with this now?

This is a comment Ditka made at an oil company event in Watford City, N.D.

I doubt he was motivated by 2 minutes of fame.

Barry Soetoro’s entire life has been a CIA psyop. His mom and grandparents were definitely spooks. Hell, even his adopted Indonesian father worked with the Company.

I would say Mike that this 'Cheesehead' would vote for you. Oh well, you didn't and the Marxist is trying (with Dems and Rinos)to wreck the USA.

The Tea Party will fix the USA!!
