Last year, President Barack Obama hosted the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers at the White House, and during the visit, the President openly lobbied the Pack to trade Quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the Bears -- effectively dissing Cutler
Perhaps this is a bit of payback.
Jay Cutler on Monday did something he doesn't often do. The man who usually plays his cards close to the his vest on his personal life and views and said he plans to vote for Mitt Romney.
Cutler talked about it on his radio show.
"That's a touchy subject," Cutler said. "Yeah, I have been following the debates and everything. I do live in Tennessee. I'm voting for Mitt (Romney) this election season."
The beauty of the American voting process is that voters don't have to share their vote. Cutler knows that every move, every sneer, every frown he makes is broken down and analyzed, so it's surprising to hear him speak on something that has nothing to do with football.
It's also surprising to hear him come out publicly in favor of the Bears-Fan-In-Chief's opponent. President Obama's home is a 10 minute drive from Soldier Field.
He has already endorsed the Bears, saying in September that he feels pretty good about the team. He invited the '85 Bears to the White House, and he donned a Bears cap on Monday Night Football.
And now he doesn't have the backing of the Bears' quarterback. Ouch, Mr. President.
