I know the guy’s got a lot on his plate right now, with two wars and a collapsing economy, so it’s understandable that he has a moment or two when his mouth disengages from his brain, but still, this was a dumb comment by Obama from yesterday’s ceremony honoring the Florida Gators team that won the 2009 BCS title game.
“I don’t want to stir up controversy. You guys are the national champions — I’m not backing off the fact we need a playoff system. But I have every confidence that you guys could have beat anybody else. And so we’ll see how that plays itself out.”
So in one breath, he denigrates the championship Florida won and in the next says that a playoff would have been meaningless because the Gators would have won anyway. Helluva sales job there.
No wonder Obama noticed that “… they got all quiet.”
