Ok Obama, NOW I'm Mad!

This is an article I found today on the internet...are you kidding me? Mr. Obama, I put all my Mormon conservative faith in you and this is how you repay me! Pooh on you, dude. Pooh on you!

Barack Obama picks Pittsburgh Steelers to win Superbowl
US President Barack Obama has said he will be supporting the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Arizona Cardinals in Sunday's Superbowl.

Mr Obama said he would root for Pittsburgh, the favourites for Sunday's clash, despite the "Cinderella story" Cardinals, who are led by 37-year-old quarterback Kurt Warner.
Both he and Vice President Joe Biden, who is originally from Pennsylvania, made it clear they would not be sitting on the fence Sunday.

"I have to say, you know, I wish the Cardinals the best," Mr Obama said, adding: "You know, Kurt Warner is a great story, and he's closer to my age than anybody else on the field. But I am a long-time Steelers fan."

Warner, Arizona's quarterback, came out of nowhere to lead the Rams to two Super Bowls, including a title in 2000, winning a Superbowl MVP in the process. He has enjoyed a resurgence this year despite many believing him to be past his prime.

Mr Obama's support for the Steelers may have something to do with their owner Dan Rooney.
Mr Rooney, a longtime Republican, endorsed Mr Obama's presidential bid and campaign for him.
Former Steelers player Franco Harris also campaigned for Mr Obama in Pittsburgh too, according to the president.

"Other than the (Chicago) Bears," he added, "the Steelers are probably the team that's closest to my heart."

Mr Biden, added: "We agree on that one, too boss!".

Pennsylvania was the key state in November's election, with Mr Obama winning the northeastern battleground.

Arizona is also the home state of Mr Obama's rival presidential candidate John McCain.
Pittsburgh are aiming for their sixth Superbowl title and second in four years; Arizona meanwhile is making its debut in the National Football League showpiece.

NOOOOOOO!!!!! The President said something I don't agree with!!! And on such an important matter, too! Whatever shall I do? I'm so disillusioned.

I guess I have to find a portrait of Ronald Regan and start praying to it now. (Maybe I can have someone make it into an icon -- Sveti Ronald?)

Good for you MaryBeth. Stand up to the tyrant. I agree of all the ridiculous ideas Mr. President has had so far supporting the Steelers? That's it, I'll never vote Democrat again. :)
