Default Dan Rooney Endorses Obama

So much for Hillary posing with a jersey with her name on it to lock up Steelers fans votes

Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney today endorsed Sen. Barack Obama in this open letter:

Based on the experiences that I have had in my seventy-five years and my assessment of what I think our nation needs to make real the change that is so needed, I am proud and now feel compelled to endorse Senator Barack Obama.


Senator Obama has rejected the say-and-do anything tactics that puts winning elections ahead of governing the country

Gee - wonder which Democrat candidate does that?

Very interesting coming on the heels of Obama's "bitter" comments.

Very interesting indeed.

I'd be interested in knowing if there is an overview somewhere of where Obama stands on the 10 or 20 main issues. I honestly don't know too much about his positions.

That endorsement presumably was in the works for some time, but props to Dan Rooney for not running away from Obama as the Clinton slime machine reaches new lows in response to Bittergate

Here's the Washington Post candidate chooser.

Again....very interesting. Obama tries to look cool in California by slamming hard working Pennsylvanians and people find a way to blame it on Clinton.

The moral of this whole story is that Obama is an idiot who can't relate to people who weren't raised rich and privileged.

Issues? Issues??!!

These are the sorts of issues on which this election will be turning

"I'm going to tell you something: That boy's finger does not need to be on the button," [GOP Representative Geoff] Davis said. ."

It depends which cliche pushes your buttons - senile old guy, icy bitch, or uppity black man

As opposed to working class heroes Hillary Clinton and John McCain

Clinton is like a running back who will not let the blocks develop - she should let Obama hang himself rather than suddenly claim her daddy taught her how to shoot (while refusing to say when she last pulled a trigger) and knocking back a shot of Crown Royal.

As for stupid, you do not make Harvard Law Review if you are dumb. As for not relating to anyone other than rich and privileged, which one grew up with a single mother, which one grew up in the upper middle class burbs of Chicago, and which one grew up the son of an Admiral Of the three candidates, do you think McCain or Clinton have not had at least as many strings pulled on their behalf?
