Nascar Drivers Decline Obama's White House Invitation

By the Left Coast Rebel

Nascar stars pass on a White House photo-op with Dear Leader:

President Barack Obama will honor NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and the 11 other Chase drivers from last year in a White House ceremony on Wednesday – but nearly half of the 2010 playoff contenders won't be there.

NASCAR said Thursday that five drivers – Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart – will not be attending the White House visit due to "schedule conflicts."

I have to laugh out loud over the Nascar story author's feigned sense of surprise:

They must be very busy people. Regardless of one's political views, the president is still the president – and an opportunity to speak with the leader of the free world is a rare and special one.

You'd think whatever photo shoots or sponsor appearances these drivers have lined up on Wednesday afternoon – if that's indeed the reason – could be rescheduled. After all, this is the President of the United States we're talking about here.

For a sport that prides itself on patriotism, having so many drivers turn down the president's invitation simply seems strange.

Uh, actually, no, genius. They probably aren't that busy. And it is precisely there sense of patriotism that likely makes them feel ill even contemplating being in the same room as this arrogant, elitist, incompetent-leftist man so anathema to patriotic American values. It would me, too.

Via Memeorandum.


  1. Must be a bunch of "redneck, gun totin', racists tea-party" types...

  2. Sad thing is, 6 are still going which is over half. Seems only 5 know that BO has the inverse Midas touch: where everything he touches instead of turning to gold, turns to sh*t. I don't know how anyone with an iota of patriotism or pride in our republic would want to be within sight of this evil clown, much less have a photo op with him. I rather have my hand cut off than shake his.

  3. I'm glad that so many NASCAR drivers are savvy enough not to allow Teh Won to use them as political props for a campaign photo op.
