Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith is endorsing President Barack Obama as part of an outreach effort by the re-election campaign to encourage continued support from the African-American community.

“I have the president’s back and it’s left up to us as African Americans to show that we have his back, also,” the coach says. “Join African Americans for President Obama today.”

That’s funny, Smith didn’t across as an ignorant, locstep racist when he was Mike Martz’ Defensive Cooridnator for the ST. LOUIS Rams.

What would happen if a famous white sports person said this:

“I have the president’s back and it’s left up to us as White Americans to show that we have his back, also,” “Join White Americans for President Bush today.”

Love GB, hate the Bears and LS. He’ll be unemployed at the end of next year.

“Our future’s looking bright because I trust the man who will be leading us into the future. And that man is Barack Obama,” Smith says before flipping a football.

Our future looks bright because of Obama?!

You forgot one, maybe two. How could you possibly omit an illegal alien or two. Would that automatically be a penalty for encroachment? (defined as a term which implies “advance beyond proper limits.”)

I have written off the NFL since the TV ad of Zero catching a pass. I saw that ad in a bar in Minnestoopid, and made a comment asking how many takes were done for the scene. Or maybe a body double was used with Zero’s head spliced on. I was kicked out of the Eagan MN Old Chicago for that.
Anyone who is in the tank for Zero is scum.

Oct. 16 Viqueens vs the Bears. A game I will ignore since I usually cheer against any team playing against the Viqueens.
Same goes for January 1st

So, blatently racial appeal. Imagine if a White coach came out for Romney or Santorum based on the fact that they are White. It would make the Rush “slut” controversy seem like the acoustic set before a Metallica concert!

Overt clearly declared racism.

He should be fired before the sun goes down.

Instead - we all look the other way.

By not firing - Bears organization condones racism - should be fined and penalized.

Imagine - Limbaugh couldn’t be an owner - but this DECLARED RACISM is OK?

Every whote player or coach who has ever been fired or let go by Lovie Smith - or the Bears - should immediately sue.

The guy just openly declared he makes decisions based on skin color.

That is illegal.

I bet there are some lawyers for the Bears spitting out their lattes tonight.

The irony is that had Ditka run for Senator against Obama, like many wanted, we would not have the clown in the White House.
