Stiffed for Steelers



SEE UPDATE BELOW.

I could understand if it was for the Cowboys, but the Steelers?
Sobbing Kindergarteners Snubbed for Steelers?

Thursday was supposed to be the highlight of the year for more than 100 kindergarteners from Stafford County, Va. They got up early and took a chartered bus to the White House for a school field trip. But when they arrived, all the 5-year-olds got was a lesson in disappointment.

The buses from Conway Elementary arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue a little later than planned, and they were locked out.

"We were going to the White House, but we couldn’t get in so I felt sad," 5-year-old Cameron Stine said.

Parents say they were just 10 minutes late for their scheduled tour. School officials say White House staff said they needed to get ready for the president's event with the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers, so they couldn't come in.

I mean, maybe if Mean Joe Greene was going to be there...

UPDATE: Compare Obama's treatment of kids to President Bush's reaction to the 9/11 attacks. Bush has long been unfairly criticized for staying in the school room in order not to alarm the kids. Obama doesn't even care about the kids. As THE BOSS said, 'Why didn't he let them in to meet the Steelers, too? They'd get a two-fer!!!'

Obama identifies more with that professional football team than he does with kids because he is one, too.

Oh, wait... They spell it S-t-e-e-l-e-r-s, don't they?
