Obama's Super Bowl Party Sounds Like a Nightmare
It sounds like President Barack Obama is going to have the worst Superbowl ever. His beloved Bears didn't make the cut for the big game so he said he's "remaining neutral." Watching a game and not rooting for either team? Who do you cheer for then, the Black Eyed Peas? His horrible situation is making us dread the Super Bowl even more, not that we didn't already think it was kind of stupid.
The Daily News has the important details of his "elite" guest list:
Sens. Pat Toomey and Robert Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania and Congressman Reid Ribble of Wisconsin also scored invites, in addition to former Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle, Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Attorney General Eric Holder, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano are also expected to attend the star-studded event.
All the people he has to put up with during work? At least he invited new American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez and her husband Mark Anthony. But J.Lo told Extra that she didn't know why she was even invited to the game because she doesn't even really know the president. So on top of spending it with his random coworkers, he has to entertain new "friends?" Torture!
But at least he can have a relaxing Sunday before the game starts, right? The News reports:
The President will join his guests after a live interview with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly as part of Fox's pregame package.
Now that's just cruel.
