    The people in Madison won't get to watch the whole pregame. Madison isn't local enough to escape from the president's campaign speech.

    But we in the Green Bay area get to watch the show if we want.


    How many stations are carrying the president's speech? But local networks can't opt out of it even if the majority of their viewers want to watch the really big event happening in their state. How stupid is that?

    President trumps Packers pre-game here


    One positive thing is that this is going to p.o. a lot of people in Dane County and further weaken the hold Obama has on that area.


    Those poor union guys are going to be so torn. They want Dem politics to win on most days but you know those cheeseheads don't want to miss the show!

    Sorry but putting a game ahead of the President (I don't care how bad he is) is just fucking retarded, and so are the people that are angry about it.

    People who want to watch the president can watch him on half a dozen other channels.



    It's not like he's going to say anything we haven't heard before.






    Does he ever stop talking?


    And on a related subject, how many times is he late for his speeches? If he is going to hold the media feeds hostage, the least he could do is show us the respect of showing up on time.



    I generally try to listen to him, but man ... he is making it hard ... he's on so regularly he should just claim an hour for himself and call it the Obama Show.


    Sure would be fun to see how low those ratings were.





    If the local affiliates had the chance to show the game that would be a real ratings eye opener for the president. Might burst that narcisstic bubble of his ... naw ... probably not. He's too oblivious. But it would be amusing.

    So it ain't your poison, but it's still a big deal to a lot of people here.
