Bart Starr Endorses Mitt Romney for President

Bart Starr Endorses Mitt Romney for President

One day after Packers cornerback Charles Woodson spoke at a Barack Obama campaign stop in the Green Bay suburb of Ashwaubenon on Thursday, perhaps the most famous living former Packer stumped on behalf of Obama's opponent in the upcoming presidential election.

Former Packers quarterback Bart Starr, the MVP of Super Bowls I and II, spoke at a Mitt Romney campaign event on Friday at State Fair Park in Milwaukee.

Benjamin Sparks, the Wisconsin communications director at Romney for President, quotes Starr as saying in a tweet...

Even Wisconsin Republican governor Scott Walker took to Twitter to mention meeting Starr backstage before the event.

Wisconsin is viewed as a key battleground in Tuesday's upcoming general election where the division between liberals and conservatives is thought to be close.

Kind of silly to be stumping this late in an already decided election, but the music is playing and the dance must be followed.

Noooo; now even CheeseHeadTV has been taken over my the election!

You're right. Who's Bart Starr?

Point Packer's picture

I hope his endorsement was accompanied by a $100,000 donation to the American Red Cross.

Bearmeat's picture

do not, for a second, ever doubt the generosity of Bart Starr.

Rawhide Boys Ranch, anyone?

Evan's picture

What is that, anyway? I remember the commercials growing up asking for donated cars and boats.

It quite simply is an outstanding faith based organization that helps young at risk boys redirect their lives.

Check it out.

The Red Cross is better than any organization which requires its members to subscribe to a specific faith.

Bearmeat's picture

The Red Cross is great. But statistics have shown the impact of faith based ministries that aren't attached to a government agency work excellently.

You're right. This socialist dictatorship where we have the right to vote on who our next President is is just horrible.

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

No, that's great actually. We just need a competent individual to steer the boat.

Point Packer's picture

And that's why Obama will get another term. Which will really piss you off. But not nearly as much as when WA approves gay marriage (R74) and elects the liberal climate change leader Jay Inslee as its governor. That will really piss you off.

Get a bottle of scotch, you're going to need it.

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

Lol... I voted "FOR" gay marriage (doesn't bother me a bit), and "FOR" Inslee (I'd likely be out of work in a nano second if McKenna got elected, he no likey state employees).

But thanks for your concern!

For the record... I approved I-502 as well. So no scotch, I'll just twist one up brah...

lennysmalls's picture

I think I'll stick with Charles Woodson's endorsement.

jack in jersey city's picture

wow. i didn't know he was stupid

Chad Lundberg's picture

Because stupid people win five championships, and endorse people who have had a lifetime of financial success?

Yeah, good luck with that.

Evan's picture

Great player. Lousy evaluator of talent. Hmmm....;)

jack in jersey city's picture

what chad said :)

packeraaron's picture

You're right Chad. It's amazing that he's had "a lifetime of financial success" given the extremely tough start he had in life.

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

Lol Niffler, I wonder who you're backing?

SpartaChris's picture

And while he could have wound up like Paris Hilton, instead he actually contributed something to society, gave people jobs and devoted a considerable amount of his time to public service. But sure, let's just be pissed at the rich white guy.

jack in jersey city's picture

also, having a lifetime of financial success is the reason to elect someone to the office of the presidency??? so that means you think someone like donald trump is qualified! haha. sounds reasonable to me!

PackersRS's picture

Some people actually believe that a rich man who owns a company and runs political campaings is doing society a favor?

You really think he has the good of the people in mind?

This from someone who doesn't give a rats' ass about the US elections. And it's not like the other guy is doing it for you.

You're free to believe anything you want. And if you feel his policies are the right ones for your country, vote for him.

But believing that such a person (anyone involved in politics, really, specially in the major parties) has anything in mind but the bottom line is naivety.

murphy's picture

Go on, America; strive for success while hating those who have found it!

jack in jersey city's picture

sorry- i meant what evan said :)

Bearmeat's picture

Amen RS. Amen.

Bottom line: Both parties suck. Both candidates suck.

I'm seriously considering writing in my cat's name...

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

I knew I liked Bart, it's just... Now I like him more.

EVICT THE INCUMBENT!

GBP 4 LIFE

TheDon's picture

There is a less than a 5% chance Obama loses Tuesday according to all accurate models

Bearmeat's picture

Please.... stop. I love hearing you guys and your great opinion on all things GBP.

But I am SO sick of politics I could puke.

This encapsulates my attitude completely.

Ok ok... Now I'm done. :-)

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

It's unlikely Mitt will take it, this I can admit. Far too many registered lemmings out there.

mark's picture

At least we can all agree on one thing: Mitt Romney loves football!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1S8OIxtfa8

jack in jersey city's picture

haha! yeah, sounds like mitt knows a lot about football. jesus. look in his eyes and listen to that laugh. there's nothing there. soulless......

mark's picture

Really disgusted by the Catholic Diocese in Green Bay. The bishop sent a letter to parishioners saying that a vote for Obama puts their "soul in jeopardy"...I guess as a Catholic it's ok to support two awful wars that killed 100,000s, just as long as you force a raped woman to carry a baby. Honestly, from New York City: GFY!

Back to football...Go Pack Go.

Dontrell's picture

No, the Bishop is RIGHT ON THE MONEY.
One party here supports killing babies and the other doesn't.
One party WAY overstepped their boundary and tried to FORCE the Catholic church SUPPORT BIRTH CONTROL even though it's against THEIR BELIEFS.

If you don't see what's wrong about that, they go to Pakistan or Egypt and try and tell them how Islam is going to be governed.

mark's picture

I LOVE your selective USE of caps lock for EMPHASIS!

And yes, please continue to lecture me about your party's love of life (and also war, the death penalty, assault weapons...)

Not sure what point you're trying to make about Islam, Pakistan or Egypt.

In any event, good luck tomorrow!

David H's picture

Awesome. I now know which members of this blog I'm not supposed to like.

Dontrell's picture

Bart Starr understands integrity, business, success, and he has class.
Politics suck, but it amazes me that anyone can overlook the lack of success, the corrupt Chicago-political ties Obama has, the fact that his BEST FRIENDS were anti-American, anti-white haters like Reverend Wright... how do you overlook all that stuff?
Because Madonna and Whoopi love him, or because his smooth talking salesmenship got you?
Or is it all the union crap?
It's embarrassing as heck for me being a native Wisconsinite.

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

The Obama apologists don't let those pesky little facts get in the way... They're too busy trying to spin Mitt into the devil to divert attention from the incumbents shoddy record.

Evan's picture

In related news, Brett Favre endorsed Obama.

Evan's picture

Wait, now he says he's had a change of heart and is endorsing Romney.

Evan's picture

Oh man, now he says that while Romney had a good run, he's fully committed to Gary Johnson.

murphy's picture

Just hope he doesn't text you pictures of Johnson.

/Ok, I'm done too.

Evan's picture

And with those lame Favre jokes out of my system, I'm going to bed.

If your a republican then your rich, racist, religious or all three. If your none of the above what the hell is wrong with you?
