POTUS on the NFL

The president decided to weigh in today on one of football's biggest stories this season.

The president had just exited M1 on the South Lawn and was walking toward the residence when a reporter shouted a question about the controversial call in last night's Packers-Seahawks game.

Obama couldn't hear him over the noise from the helicopter so the reporter shouted again, "Packers?."

"Terrible," Obama said of the game, and then added. "I've been saying for months, we've gotta get our refs back."

Obama's day ahead

2012 politics is being put on the back-burner today - slightly - as President Obama gets set to address the United Nations General Assembly in New York City followed by an early afternoon speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. He will return to the White House at 2:35 p.m. this afternoon. Of course, the president has taken heat from Republicans for not meeting with any foreign leaders while in New York as has long been customary while the UN is in session. The White House has responded that the president often talks with a variety of leaders and scheduling issues prevented any meetings this week.
