The President welcomed the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers to the White House and proposed a trade of Aaron Rodgers to the Bears. Dig at Cutler?
There are Bears fans out there who will do anything to prove their Bears fandom.
For example, my sister named her son Payton, after the greatest football player of all time. Her dog's name? Sweetness.
But she doesn't hold a candle to President Obama is doing to the Packers next Thursday night.
Under pressure to move a speech that would have conflicted with the GOP debate, the president moved it to the next best time: just before the Packers are set to kick off their season. He will address a joint session of congress at 6:30 CT. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30. This isn't the State of the Union, so it's unlikely the speech will actually go up against the game unless congress decides to pull out some random filibustering.
What's that you say, Aaron Rodgers? This is your night? Well, that's what you get for messing with the Commander-in-Chief's team. Enjoy your Super Bowl trophy, but know that the prez played the ultimate trump card.
And Mr. President, on behalf of Bears fans everywhere, I hope you get a beer and a Chicago-style dog after the speech. You deserve it.
