Sen. Barack Obama is the most inspiring public leader in America. He has a bold vision to help the middle class and restore America's prestige in the world. Join this grassroots effort to support Sen. Obama's historic and uplifting campaign for president. Keep hope alive! Obama '08!
Sen. Obama displayed his political courage by publicly endorsing his hometown Chicago Bears before the playoffs even started. Usually, politicians are too afraid to offend anybody, so they refuse toendorse political sports teams. But Obama showed that he's just a normal average American who loves his hometown football team. He's a down-to-earth politician who shares the same interests of regular voters who love sports. Luckily for Obama, the Bears actually survived the playoffs and will play in the Super Bowl tomorrow.
If the Cowboys had made the Super Bowl, we would obviously be cheering for Da Boys. But now we're cheering for Da Bears. Enjoy this now-famous video of Obama announcing his endorsement of the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
The Chicago Bears stunning victory in Sunday’s NFC Championship game
disappointed millions of fans rooting for the New Orleans Saints. The
Saints’ remarkable resurgence from a Hurricane Katrina –impacted 3-13
season transformed them into America’s team, and politicians jumped on
their bandwagon. But Barack Obama chose a more honest approach. Rather
than follow the Clinton-type course and announce he was supporting the
hometown Bears while hoping the best team would win, Obama boldly
announced that the Bears would end the Saints’ fairy tale season. He
was right, and now can head for the national spotlight at the Super
Bowl in Miami.
Those concerned about Barack Obama’s excess caution
should take heed of his outspoken insistence that his hometown Chicago
Bears would end the Saints’ miracle season. Had the Bears lost-- as
nearly every football expert predicted--- there is no question that
Obama’s promise of a Bears victory would have become an ongoing joke at
Now he gets two weeks to join the Bears in the massive media frenzy
surrounding the Super Bowl. And in a stroke of luck for a man who seeks
to become America’s first black President, the game features the first
African-Americans coaches to reach the Super Bowl.
Chicago Bears' head coach, Lovie Smith, is a proud Texas native. He started his coaching career in 1980 for his hometown high school team, and in 2004, he was picked to become the Bears' coach.
Lovie is a good community citizen, and he's an active supporter of the American Diabetes Association.
In addition to participating in various events for the ADA, Smith also
donates ten tickets to every Bears’ game to children suffering from diabetes. Also, he and his wife are also the founders of the Lovie and MarryAnne Smith Foundation, a program which donates college tuition funds towards impoverished children.
The Bears haven't been to the Super Bowl in 20 years, and Lovie will also make history as the first black coach
to lead his team to the Super Bowl. Maybe that's a good sign as fellow
Chicago resident Barack Obama tries to become the first black president?
While we all are Saints fans because of the Katrina tragedy, the fairy tale may come to an end today. The Chicago Bears have the best defense in the NFL, and they've got their sights set on beating the Saints and making the Super Bowl.
Sen. Obama famously endorsed the Chicago Bears during a Monday Night Football promo. But where does Hillary Clinton stand? She's also from Chicago, but so far, she's been afraid to take a stand.
Barack Obama is a Man who is not afraid to take a Position
When it comes to Football anyway. And other things. There is
NO doubt Obama is rooting for the home team Sunday. Here is his quote "
The Bears are going to the Super Bowl,'' he declared. ''I am happy for New Orleans.It's a
wonderful story for their city, but this fairy tale ends when they come to Chicago."
Even more his comment shows how fast things can change. A
year ago nobody would have cared who Barack Obama favored for the SuperBowl.
Now his pick is making the news across America. And yes even causing
controversy. The slam is he wants to represent the entire nation as the
next President but he's attacking New Orleans. What exactly is he going to do. NOT root for
his home team? Now that would be the mark of a weak candidate.
Which brings us to Hillary who is also from Chicago
Don't expect to read about Hillary Clinton picking teams in
the 2 NFL Championship games Sunday. She probably doesn't even know there are
football games Sunday and if she does the last thing she would do is root for
any team over any other. Just like her upcoming campaign for President she will
try to "please" everyone and pray everyone in America is Stupid.
Just as she was a BIG supporter of the Iraq invasion
and occupation and now trying to "modify" hr positions so that both those
for and against the continuing Occupation will like her position. It won't work
Meanwhile back to Bears fan Barack Obama
A candidate who was ALWAYS against the invasion and
occupation even back when he was a no name state senator back in Illinois. And is now
more opposed than ever.
