Another Reason Obama Sucks

Posted on | December 27, 2010 | 1 Comment

“Yes, Obama called Eagle owner Jeffrey Lurie to praise the Eagles for giving Vick a chance. Said too many prisoners never get fair 2d chance.”

More than a year after Vick was actually signed, Obama decided it was a positive thing. Why, if he really thought it was the right move, did he not congratulate the team immediately back in 2009? Why, now that there is talk of awarding him the league’s MVP award, does he jump on the band wagon and make a call – a call guaranteed to make the news? Because he is a political animal always working the angles.

Of course, the timing isn’t what sucks for me – it is the the call itself. Our president taking time to call the owner of a sports franchise to congratulate him on ignoring a player’s violently brutal past behavior in hopes of putting together a winning franchise.

I disagree on whether that signing decision was a good one. Thankfully, I’m not the only one.

BTW: “fair 2d chance”? Really, being signed to a multi-million dollar contract while barely out of prison is fair? Considering how many things, especially those concerning compensation, that Obama thinks are unfair, it seems odd this would be his jump off point for what is “just”.

UPDATE: (Because she nails it) RT @akgabriel: Hey, maybe Obama will let Vick adopt his dog. #AdoptOutYourPetToADogKillerDay
