Who cares what Obama thinks?: He needs to do his job as president where the buck suppose to stop!: :
And as usual President Obama is on the wrong side of an issue. : 4 of 5 Americans approve of the Redskins name.: So he needs to mind his business.:
The Huffington Post reports President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would “think about changing” the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native Americans.
Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names like the Redskins offend “a sizable group of people.” He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.
“I don’t know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people have about these things,” he said in the interview, which was conducted Friday.
An avid sports fan himself, Obama said he doesn’t think Washington football fans are purposely trying to offend American Indians. “I don’t want to detract from the wonderful Redskins fans that are here. They love their team and rightly so,” he said.
If President Obama spent as much time doing his job and mot be on the golf course we could’ve avoided a shutdown!
