  •  Once again Obama led the way (7+ / 0-)

    After he made his attitude known, Romney, Walker and Ryan were backed into a corner, Ryan and Walker in particular because Packers fans were irate. Thing of beauty.

    I'm not saying Obama caused the NFL to cave, but it's interesting to see that public outrage was sufficient to give the President cover to make a public statement. NFL owners are generally (exclusively?) on the Romney side of the equation and they may not have been able to stomach giving the President a bludgeon on top of all the other pressures they were under, which were many and widely variegated.
