President Obama hosts champion Blackhawks

Posted on: March 11, 2011 4:14 pm
 


President Obama hosted last season’s Stanley Cup champs Friday, minus a few players who have been dealt or otherwise left the Chicago Blackhawks

Obama, however, noted another absence: Patrick Kane’s playoff mullet. 

“I thought it was sharp,” Obama quipped

Team president John McDonough handed Obama, the nation’s 44th president, a No. 44 Blackhawks jersey. USA TODAY reported that Obama took a moment to note his hometown’s struggles when it comes to championships, which really is down to the Chicago Cubs now that the ‘Hawks ended their 49-year drought. 
"Waiting builds character," Obama said. "We have a lot of character" in Chicago.

"We have a lot of character" in Chicago. Yeah, Mr. Prez Chicago sure does - one of the shadiest is your former Chief Of Staff. I'm glad they explained where the 44 number came from - I initially thought it came from the current US national debt in trillions. Well, if the Blackhawks need an experienced LEFT WINGER, they certainly know where to find one.

I'm surprised O'Bama hasn't filed a complaint with the league stating that the name "Blackhawks" is somehow racist. I'm sure he'll put together a sub-committee to look into the matter.

Agree with your points on George W., but to be fair deregulation of the banking industry started under Reagan and was accelerated by Clinton. Dubya simply let it continue and so will every president after him.

This is a sports website so.....GO HAWKS!

Let's see....

President Bush staring like a deer in the headlights during story time with the kids when he gets news that the Twin Towers are going down in flames...or invading Iraq without any substantial basis costing billions in defense....or deregulating the banking industry precipitating that greatest economic decline in this country since the Great Depression....was he really better for our country than Obama?

Quit being a lemming....or you'll fall off of the cliff called reality.

@Philsfan So there was no problems at all in the US when any other President has congratulated champions at the White House? Rolling my eyes...

I am not defending Obama's policies (they are bad) but this has got to be the one of the weakest criticism of Obama I have ever heard.
