White House: Bad Call in Football Game a ‘Pressing Matter’ and ‘Very Distressing’

Posted by on Sep 25, 2012 at 3:16 pm

They’re more upset by this than Chris Stevens being raped, murdered and dragged through the streets of Benghazi.

Carney … was eager to weigh in on an issue he called a “pressing matter,” “astounding” and “very distressing” — the end of the Packers-Seahawks game.

Carney said he had talked to the president this morning about it. Carney noted that the president had discussed the issue last week in an interview with a Cleveland radio station and “as a sports fan he thought it was time to get back to the regular refs. This morning I talked to him about the end of the Packers-Seahawks game and he said that what happened in that game is a perfect example of why both sides need to come together, resolve their differences so that the regular refs can get back on the field and we can start focusing on a game that so many of us love rather than debating whether of not a game is won or lost because of a bad call.

Know what else is very distressing and should be a pressing matter? The economy. Iranian nukes. The mideast in flames. We find it  “astounding”  Obama has time for football and The View and not world leaders.

    Didn’t this dickhead dodge the Chicago teachers strike, calling it a “local issue”? And now he wants to chat football? What’s he gonna do? Have the replacement refs hauled in by the pack of deputies?

    Judging by current events, football is about the highest intellectual load the Smartest President Evah can handle.

    As terrible as the replacement refs have been the last 2 weeks, they are still doing a better job than Obama, Hillary and the State Department. Their bad calls didn’t cause 4 Americans to die in Libya.

    There is a method to his madness though folks. He is ignoring the BAD news everyone hates to hear and many people LIKE that. I dont watch local news for that reason.Same ol murder,robbery,rape,wreck etc. So he looks like the world is on a cloud and so the folks who have their heads already in the clouds see him as above all this icky real stuff.It just might work TOO.

    Reagan’s idea of a dangerous strike that requires presidential attention? Air traffic controllers.

    Obama’s idea of a dangerous strike that requires presidential attention? Not Chicago teachers. Not airline employees. NFL Referees.
