Super Bowl bet: What will the thermostat temp be at the White House party?
Inquiring minds want to know:
Sure, it’s all about bipartisanship. Not to mention the perks of watching the Super Bowl at the White House with the first fan playing host.
President Barack Obama is inviting a group of lawmakers — some Republicans, many Democrats, and a few from Pennsylvania and Arizona — to join him for Sunday’s championship game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals.
With no Chicago team for Obama to cheer, the president said he’s rooting for Pittsburgh against the “long-suffering” and “great Cinderella story” Cardinals, and he wished the Cardinals the best.
Steelers owner Dan Rooney, a longtime Republican, endorsed Obama’s presidential bid and campaigned for him. Obama also noted that Franco Harris, one of the most beloved former Steelers, campaigned for him in Pittsburgh, too.
Five of the 15 lawmakers invited to join Obama are from Pennsylvania, and two are from Arizona. There are four senators and 11 representatives. The group includes 11 Democrats, four Republicans and three women.
While the Beltway parties, Kentucky is freezing.
Jimmie at Sundries Shack: “Obama dozed, people froze.”
Or: Obama perspired, people expired.
