NBC Affiliate in Milwaukee Will Carry The Packers Pre-Game Over Obama's Speech

NBC Affiliate in Milwaukee Will Carry The Packers Pre-Game Over Obama's Speech To Joint Session

NBC picks Packers over Obama in Milwaukee

Washington Examiner

He probably didn't know it at the time, but when President Obama greeted Green Bay Packers quarterback (and California Golden Bears alum) Aaron Rodgers at the White House this August, he was shaking hands with the competition. And not because Obama is a Chicago Bears fan.

The NBC affiliate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, WTMJ TV announced yesterday they will not be airing Obama's jobs speech at 7 PM EST Thursday night. instead they are opting for their own pre-game coverage of the Packers Saints game scheduled to kick off at 8 PM. Green Bay's NBC affiliate, NBC 26, will also go with the Packers pre-game show over Obama.

Saints fans do not appear to be as devoted to their team. WDSU, the New Orleans NBC affiliate, plans to stick with Obama.


Wild Thing's comment......

LOL I love it. I could care less what he has to say. I have really had it with Obama putting the American people down, his lies, threats and destruction of our country.

Obama's political grandstanding for a run in 2012, nothing more. Giving money for education to prevent jobs is not creating jobs. When enough teachers receive pink slips maybe they'll see the problems they and their unions have created. If they don't care enough about educatin, students and their jobs to give back then I sure as hell don't care about them remaining employed. If he had a plan it should have as DeMint said been sent to Congress so that it could have been looked at and discussed.

Being a station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they wouldn't dare not show the Packers pre-game show.

Isn't this the state where all the lefty legislators, went to Illinois so they wouldn't have to vote on the Republican Governor's measures?

Isn't this the state where the lefty Public Union members are constantly holding demonstrations at the State House and any other place where the Governor appears, in order to disrupt the flow of things.

I wonder if these same legislators will be going elsewhere, like Illinois, so they can view Our Dear Leader's latest trip into fantasy land.

Will the Public Union Members stage violent protests at the headquarters of the NBC affiliate?

These are rhetorical questions,are they not?

It seems that all dictators love to give grandiose speeches praising themselves and promising the world to the masses. obama loves to make promises. However, I don't think that Shirley got her mortgage paid off or her "free" gas. My guess is that the ratings for obama's speech will be very low.

The Packers have a helll of a lot more credibility that obama would ever have. And besides the Pack has won 4 Superbowls, a commitment to excellance something obama never learned. So who give a rats arse what this two bit kenyan half-wit thinks anyway.

I just can't watch and listen anymore.

Three years into this charade and menagerie, I just can't take hearing his voice.

I read the transcripts of his speeches.

And for relief after, I enjoy political humor like this:

Sorry, that link to the Miami Herald was misdirected.

That Oppenheimer is a complete idiot, don't waste a second with his blather.

I meant to direct to this funny Jim Morin animation of the President "Fired Up" walking a treadmill going, like his rhetoric, no where:

i love it, the rapidly disappearing american middle class knows that the only change they want from obama is a new administration. !
