President Obama’s Super Bowl Pick

And the winner is…The New Orleans Saints!

President Barack Obama revealed his pick last night in an exclusive interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer

“You know, I think both teams are terrific,” Obama told Sawyer. “I guess I am rooting a little bit for the Saints as the underdog, partly just because when I think about what’s happened in New Orleans over the last several years and how much that team means to them. You know, I’m pretty sympathetic.”

I wonder if the Super Bowl betting odds makers agree with him.

Thanks for your vote of confidence Commander in Chief!

  18. GeauxDog says:

    Please read what was said. Rooting for and picking someone to win are two different things. He didn’t predict anyone to win. He said he was rooting for the Saints. That’s not a prediction!! Geaux Saints !!

  19. Twobesure says:

    Wow, the President, made a comment worth noting. With all that New Orleans has gone through and have revived and survived the disaster that will always be assocoated with New Orleans, I am cheering for the Saints too. let’s not make this political. God Bless America, God Bless America and God Bless the saints! Go Saints…

  31. dpound2323 says:

    To add on to what “Lance” said..He’s neither Pres. Obama or Mr. Obama…He’s Barack to me…

  32. Ben Dover says:

    I would be upset if that loser, President Obama, picked my favorite team to win the Super Bowl. That’s the kiss of death.
    The Saints got to the Viking’s QB (I won’t even that jerks name) alot in the championship game, but they would have lost if Minnesota didn’t turn the ball over 6 times.
    So couple their inexperience with the fact they got out played in the NFC championship game, and Obama’s endorsement, things don’t look too good for the Saints.
    The Colts are going to win Super Bowl XLIV.

  33. Jerry C says:

    His name is NObama. I didn’t vote for him so he’s not my president. Truth be told, even though you voted for him, do you really think your vote mattered as well? LOL…

  34. TheCoach says:

    The Colts are going to win because of Manning being the greatest
    quarterback of all time… there is no way to stop him. If he wants
    to win the game, he will. They have had a vast amount of 4th quarter
    comebacks this year and when the Ravens sat back, Peyton found a way
    to beat them, when the Jets came blitz heavy, Peyton found a way to
    beat them…

    He is just too good and will continue to be until his retires on top
    of the game. As a fan of the game, I used to hate Manning because of
    how good he was, but through-out the years, it’s impossible as a fan
    of the game not to enjoy watching him play.

    Drew Brees on the other hands, is no slouch, in my eyes, he is the
    best quarterback other than Peyton and this is going to be quite the
    SuperBowl. TheCoach was predicting a Saints-Colts SuperBowl earlier
    in the season and I am so glad it’s happened!!

    Best of luck to both teams this week,

    Slowbama did pick the Steelers last year. One of the only things he’s managed to accomplish since taking office…

  36. […] Partisan Picks? It appears that the President picked the Saints this year. And Rachel Maddow hosted her show Friday night from New Orleans. All this was something that Howard […]

  38. ChipDWood says:

    WAIT, wait, it’s ok. Obama picked both the Saints AND the Colts to win.

    So, he’s totally right, and clearly, made the right choices between the two.

  39. Only The Truth says:

    Another WISE, INTUITIVE, Well Thought Out, selection by our “leader”, bongo ears Obama.
