Whether you like Obama or not, you have to admit... he is probably the best preseident ever at saying something without saying anything at all. Even the headline of the article doesnt even really mean anything at all other than to say "yeah Tim Tebow has good Character"http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8 ... ent_stream
The race for presidency has partially evolved into a battle for the sub-conscious minds of Americans. An article like this (while seemingly harmless) is a huge win for someone like Obama. The words he choose are methodical and well thought out. First off, there is hardly any team in football who wants a quarterback controversy, so by Obama noting this, he has offended almost no-one and vindicated 99% of football fans. In effect he has gotten the majority of Americans to admit that they agree with him (or sub-consciously, that they think the same way as him.)
In addition, he has praised Tim Tebow as a winner. I'm sure most of you know that Tim Tebow is the most popular outspoken Christian in the US. So now you have Obama appealing to the Christian vote. The article states that if Sanchez isn't voting for Rommney , his most likely is now...However he is quoted as saying "Sanchez is not Brady, yet".. yet?? So for those Sanchez fans out there, they are most surely thinking.. "Did Obama just put Sanchez in the same regards as the arguably best quarterback in NFL history? Is he saying that Sanchez can be a Tom Brady? how wonderful, i like his point of view!"
There is nothing but positive spin in all regards with this story. This is why Obama will win the election, not because he is better candidate than Romney, but because he knows how to appeal to the masses and knows how to win over the Subconscious minds of Americans.
Plus, now matter the outcome of this QB controvery, nothing will be decided until Obama is already elected so he can wash his hands of the whole situation before then. ha!
You can say I'm reading too much into something like this, but I am not. There is no way that Obamas public relations team would advise him to appear on public radio (in an election year) without advising him on exactly what he would say. This was an appearance to win votes, not to simply give his thoughts on football.
