Obama To Sponsor Car at Nascar Race
 
Now I'm squarely in the Obama camp, but boy this comes off as pandering if I ever saw it.

What do you guys think?

Yeah i don't think most of those people are voting for Obama anyways. This isn't going to help.

no real downside. don't think the ROI is going to be great for him, but whatever... he has the money.

Am I missing something? From Huffington Post:

[COLOR=red]"Late Friday, the Obama campaign said there would be no sponsorship."[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]I guess you can switch your position on guns, flag lapel pins, the Iraq War, etc , but to associate yourself with [I]Nascar people [/I]would be a bridge too far. [/COLOR]

LOL...BAM is big time whoring itself to anyone willing to fork some cash. They asked both candidates if they're willing to sponsor them and their driver is a card caring republican. No thanks.

I have, to the surprise of many, a life outside this board. Also, NASCAR ain't my forte no more anyway.

Wow...

Would the car have had a slogan like "Your guns are mine!" on it?

Perhaps "Change...tires every 50 laps."

He would have definitely put himself amongst a group of people who don't like him...

Too bad this won't happen...maybe Tony Stewart would have put the Obama car in the wall on the first lap. :)
