    How about the tea party radicals?

    With thousands of people being furloughed, he is out there running his mouth on a football team's name? It shows how shallow he is. Putin raked him the coal over Syria crisis. Then the new Iranian president took him to the cleaner, the only thing left for him is uh, uh, uh, "this name thing is offensive". Mr President, do the right thing, resign now before the world declares you irrelevant.

    Tom, if he acted like the radical tea party he would shut down the NFL, threaten to ruin the leagues credit, and demand his way even if in the minority.

    since you are the pc police let me clue you in on something, indians don't like being called native americans. as they say, if you were born here you are Native American. they prefer American Indian. another hyped issue that barry gets involved with. i'm offended that obama calls himself black and not biracial. how's that for being pc?

    Native American sensitivities have accounted for numerous name changes for many years now.
    There are still some offending monikers left.
    Thank you for assisting with this, President Obama!

    Is changing the name of a football team fall under "Parks and Recreational Services?". If so, I hope he hurries it up. We need those Parks and Rec's employee to get back to work soon. LOL!.

    Priorities, Barak, Priorities!!!

    I guess once he has said, "I will not compromise" he thinks it is time to move on to something else, like, "If I had a son, he would look like..."

    Mr. Community Organizer-in-Chief, nobody cares what you or any politician thinks about any team's name.

    We don't want to hear what anyone in the White House or Congress has to say about any recreational or fun topic as long as you are keeping the American people, innocent government employees and private citizens, and the economy of the world as hostages to your political agendas and ambitions.

    Grow up, stop sucking your thumbs and throwing tantrums, be responsible public officials, and get this country functioning. Once you've proven you are adults, you can flap your useless politician mouths all you want about football.

    That seals it for me. I will continue to, and alwyas will, call them the Washington Redskins!!!

    Why must Obama feel compelled to get involved in every controversy of our day? Doesn't he have enough to do (or shouldn't he have enough to do) rather than to become embroiled in this sort of thing?

    He seems to exhibit classic Narcissistic Disorder. No, really. Not joking a bit.

    I'm sure glad that Barry doesn't have anything better to do with his time, like get the government back to work, or making good on his promises of fixing the economy, than to worry about the name of a football team. The prez should keep mute on this issue. He needs to save his energy for bigger, more important topics.

    If Mr. Obama promises to never call Tea Party Activists anarchists, extortionists, hostage takers, and blackmailers, and accusing people of faith of clinging to their guns and bibles, then I will vow to never again use the name Washington Redskins.
