    Why should he but you should not? Because you happen to disagree with his opinion?

    And, all this was during an interview with AP. Not exactly like he called a press conference to discuss it. He's a sports fan and he offered up his opinion, the same as anyone else.

    Making **** up is not a good debate tactic. How many people are offended is debatable, but the fact that some are is not.

    A president without an opinion on issues is beneath the position. And again, you would be first in line to bitch if he had ducked a question in an interview.

    He was asked. Answering a question asked in an interview is now being an attention whore? Then every single president ever has been one. Well done.

    He didn't butt in. It was an interview, the question was asked, he answered it. If he didn't, you would still complain, twist things around even further and pretend that Obama was refusing to comment on Native Americans - so he probably hates them too . He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

    Really, this just goes to show how rabid some on the right have become. This should be a non story. Their hate is so large that they take Obama's remarks about a football team as some sort of new means to attack him. They are more concerned about this crap than the fact their country is about to default and any of the other hot topics that are actually worthy of reasonable discussion.

    Keep this crap up instead of focussing on important issues and this is how America further declines. IF that happens, you have no one to blame but yourselves.

    In NP's world, you aren't allowed to have an opinion...oh...unless you are a Republican, in which case, your opinion is the word of God.

    This falls into the same category as Trayvon Martin and the arrest of the professor....none of his business.

    His proper answer to the question should of been, "I'd prefer not to comment". [but we all know he can't do that]

    A reporter poses the question regarding the football team and it's Mr. Obama who is butting in? Interesting. Although, "no comment" might have been a better answer.

    Too late, he already did.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
