Obama Says He Kinda Hopes the Tigers Win the World Series (SF Mad at Backstabbing)
SF Weekly ^ | Thu., Oct. 25 2012 | Erin Sherbert

Political suicide?

President Obama appeared on the Tonight Show last night where he admitted that he's leaning toward rooting for the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. And what a real slap in the face this is to San Francisco, which has practically bankrolled his 2012 presidential campaign.

His words exactly:

"I will say, I've spent a lot of time in Detroit lately, and I didn't want to let Detroit go bankrupt. So in this particular World Series, I might be a little partial," Obama said in comments taped before the Tigers lost the opening game of the series to the San Francisco Giants.

Clearly, the president isn't worried about losing the Bay Area vote.

Nor should he be, really. San Francisco can't get enough of Obama, which is maybe why he and his wife, Michelle, have made many, many campaign stops here, treating us like the ATMs we are. To date, San Francisco has dumped more than $11 million into the president's campaign coffers and Oakland kicked in another $6 million.

Detroit, on the other hand, contributed a measly $2 million to Obama, while handing over $4 million to Mitt Romney. And it's not as if the mayor of Motor City has had kind things to say about the president; just last month, Dave Bing was lambasting Obama for not paying enough attention to Detroit. (Wait, did he already forget about that monstrous $80 billion auto bailout?)

Well, hopefully all our hard-earned money will pay off in this election, and Obama won't get his ass kicked like the Tigers did last night.

It’s all about Oboingo trying to salvage MI out of the loss column. It is the only loyalty he has as the supposed bright spot of his tenor was the “saving” of GM . This is about the MI Unions and nothing else IMHO...

Obama’s doing for the Tigers what he’s doing for the Democrats this year.

Obvious political pick. He would have been better off saying his team wasn’t in it so he had no preference and may the best team win.

I kinda want Detroit to win because they haven’t won in forever, but on the other hand I was born in San Francisco so I guess I have to show them some love.

Considering his track record with sport endorsements, the Tigers are screwed.

Jeepers! This is all us Tiger Fans need:Some Obama Voodoo Type Endorsement of the Tigers in the 2012 World Series. Obama couldn’t/can’t even throw a baseball from the pitchers mound to home plate(throws like a girl)let alone know who’s going to win the series. It’s like the kiss of death to our tigers. Obama should stick to those that he got killed in Benghazi and let the Detroit Tigers alone?

What a muffin head he is. Yes he’s got a right to his opinion, but it’s pretty darned stupid of him to broadcast it. ‘Course, nobody ever accused him of being smart.

I don’t think Obullsh!t is worried about SF. The homos there would all love to do him whatever favor he wishes.

He has more to gain backing Detroit. California is hopelessly in the bag for any socialist.

Now that the Great and Powerful “O” has spoken, it would be racist if the Giants didn’t throw the game so Detroit could win one for “O”.

Obviously, not all of them. Romney doesn't have a chance there.

Ok... Michigan is in play... CA is going to vote for ZERO... so ZERO is going to say he is rooting fior the Tigers...

The Packs are playing the Jags this sunday, so if WI was solidly for O and Florida was a swing state... he would say he is rooting for the Jags. Now on the 4th of Nov, the Packs are playing the Cards (AZ is going for Romney), so he'll say he is going for the PACK...

I hate to use my favorite team to compare ZERO and his FANDOM, but I bet he is NOT a SOX (or Cubs) fan...(and bet he is a fan of the CUBAN BASEBALL TEAM!)

From the guy calling Green Bay’s stadium Lambert Field. Face facts the punk POTUS knows nothing about sports except basketball.

Obama doing what he does best - picking losers.

Go Giants!

Obama has the reverse Midas touch - everything he touches turns to shit.

Verlander might win one for the Tigers tonight, but it’s just putting off the inevitable.

Scherzer is pitching tonight, and he is close to being in the same league with Verlander. Unfortunately, the best pitcher in the world cannot prevail when the rest of the team is impersonating a dead cockroach on its back with legs sticking straight up.

I guess the magic number is going to be 163 . . .
