NASCAR Drivers Blow Off Obama Invite to White House

(Yes this was Photoshopped)

Is this the hope or the change?
Five NASCAR drivers turned down an invite to meet with Barack Obama at the White House.
They already had plans.
SB Nation reported, via Say Anything:

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.”

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.

    I wouldn’t cross the street and pee on him if he was standing there on fire. But then, that’s just me.

    i wouldnt want to meet with an empty suit dictator either

    Maybe they thought it would be better not to take a chance on gagging when he shook their hands and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin, dumbass liberals. President or not, I wouldn’t go next door to see this pos. I wouldn’t go into the next room to hear his lies.

  • Sam

    I wouldn’t meet him if you paid me. Because, ya know, I would just puke on his shoes since he makes me so sick.

    Really ?
    Even when its President Bush ?

  • Mad Hatter

    Obama is doing this to try and kiss up to the NASCAR fan base since he knows how big of a voting block we are.

    What Obama doesn’t understand is that many NASCAR fans agree with, and/or, a part of the Tea Party.

    Why meet with a man who is against every thing you believe in?

    I’m enjoying these reports, not because the msm attempts to use their exclusive platforms to publicly shame those who hold-nothing-but-contempt for the current occupant of the oval office, but because reports like this confirm Obama’s popularity is fading fast. “Unexpected”. Bwa ha ha.

    Barack Insane 0bama has as much in common with NASCAR as the GM ‘Volt’ electric clown-mobile has in common with a set of classic Hilborn Fuel Injectors. Maybe when the vacation bug starts biting the First Wookie again, she can spend her NEXT 10 million dollars on fielding her own NASCAR race car and put Mr. Hope & Change into the driver’s seat. It makes perfect logical sense: a yellow bumper to match his yellow spine. Kudos to ALL the drivers who chose principle over meaningless photo ops with the Pretenda from Kenya.

    The hypocrisy, if not unexpected, is still astounding.

    I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t resist the urge to grab him by the ears, pound his head on the floor and yell, “Stop f**king up this country for all time!!!”

  • Dennis29Brooks

    Makes me like and respect Kevin Harvick even more…lol….Obummer is trying to connect with teaparty voters? whaaaat …lol all we do is cling to our RELIGION and GUNS…This president is the biggest HYPOCRITE to ever hold office !!!

  • Darren

    Maybe Obama will bow when he shakes Jimmie Johnson’s hand like he did other leaders.

  • K.J. Hinton

    Damn. Bif’s from around these parts… but I could get to start liking NASCAR again if this keeps up.

    Well, after they get rid of those cookie-cutter cars, that is.

  • Mad Hatter


    You’re not actually talking about causing physical harm to him right? You’re just using that as a metaphor, correct?

    I can’t stand the guy, but I don’t want anyone to take your words out of context.

  • Rob De Witt

    Gee, I’m sorry. I have to wash my hair that night……

  • Kate

    Looks to me that these drivers have their priorities straight.

  • Fed Up Citizen

    Y’know, there are actually some celebrities that has some intelligibility after all.
