Five NASCAR Drivers Decline President Obama's White House Invitation

President Barack Obama will honor NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and the 11 other Chase drivers from last year in a White House ceremony on Wednesday – but nearly half of the 2010 playoff contenders won't be there.

NASCAR said Thursday that five drivers – Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart – will not be attending the White House visit due to "schedule conflicts."

They must be very busy people. Regardless of one's political views, the president is still the president – and an opportunity to speak with the leader of the free world is a rare and special one.

Really? Obama likes to do almost anything other than lead our nation. You get the sense that meeting him isn't that big of a deal.

You'd think whatever photo shoots or sponsor appearances these drivers have lined up on Wednesday afternoon – if that's indeed the reason – could be rescheduled. After all, this is the President of the United States we're talking about here.

Yeah, but we're also talking about Obama.

For a sport that prides itself on patriotism, having so many drivers turn down the president's invitation simply seems strange.

Not really, patriotic people aren't too keen on Barry O the socialist job killer. I think this shows how far Obama has dragged down the office of the President.

Johnson, Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer, Jeff Burton and Matt Kenseth will attend.

Update: Kurt Busch: I Will Be At White House Visit With Obama

The time has come to admit the fact that few people respect Obama. He's an annoyance that most Americans are trying to tolerate until 2013 when he is gone. Why would anyone get excited about meeting with this failure?

It's NASCAR Bart BFD. Your painting with the broad brush again.

He's saying "It's Obama, Woodie. BFD". Obama is quickly making himself irrelevant. Next Thursday night will be interesting. Fox News may draw a bigger share of the TV market at 6pm CDST. Who needs to hear the same lies and empty promises? Zero job growth. Zero job growth. 2.5 years in office. Trillion dollar stimulus. Think about it.

You've given up then Elmer is that correct? You don't even want to hear what the President has to say? I'm tired of listening to everybody discredit this Presidents speech on the economy before he has even given it. I need to listen to nothing but good music this weekend and not read or listen to the words of people that have quit and/or given up on their Country. Everybody have a fantastic and safe Labor Day weekend. Let's see ah yes Booker T and the MG's Here we go smilies/wink.gif

Sorry to say it, but yes, I have given up. Just like I did on Carter. After a while it's just the same old ineffectual big-state anti-business BS. The left doesn't know how to get us out of this mess and it's long past time for new leadership. What do I mean "new". Hell, leadership of any kind. Good weekend to you, too, Woody.

And to clarify, few, if any, have given up on the country. Many have given up on this president ever coming up with an idea that does not involve more government, even an idea that might not work. A whole administration of intellectuals who don't have a hint of common sense.

I have not given up. we survived FDR, LBJ and Jimmah, we'll make it through PBO too. It may take a generation or two, but we'll get back to freedom.

Obama is not America

Did giving up on Bush mean you gave up on the country? I never saw that posting when Bush was in office.

Our economy created zero jobs last month. That shows that Obama has failed. How about dealing with reality? Zero is zero. His faculty lounge Keynesian economics have failed again. His far left supporters are abandoning him for stopping the EPA from killing more jobs.

If I thought for 2 seconds that Obama could think outside the box and propose anything like the following, I'd look forward to his speech, but he won't.

1. Drill, Baby, Drill. Open up the Gulf, ANWR, New York and California to oil and gas drilling,
2. Fast track pending oil pipelines.
3. Zero capital gains for any housing projects that show a profit for 5 years.
4. No environmental impact statement required for any project that hires over 50 full time workers for 5 years.
5. Massive Tort reform
6. Repeal Obamacare.

Bart - I don't recall giving up on Bush. Please refresh my memory as to what I said that would indicate that I did. Zero jobs is not a reflection solely on Obama but on the current dysfunctional government that is more focused on regaining power than creating jobs or improving the economy in an election year.

"Our economy created zero jobs last month. That shows that Obama has failed. How about dealing with reality? Zero is zero"

The world is not as black and white is you tend to portray with the BB with statements like the one above. The economy and politics is much more complex than that.

Actually it isn't

Obama has had 2 1/2 years and Trillions of dollars to turn the economy around and he has failed. Look at the landscape littered with failed programs, Cash For Clunkers, Cash for Caulkers, the $787 billion stimulus bill, The $4 trillion that the Fed has taken on in debt, TARP (worked for the banks, not for the people), etc.

Obama has failed and many of his progrmas have made things worse. like the drilling ban and Obamacare. Reagan had the country on the mend by this time in his Presidency and he didn't have control of the House and the Senate for the first two years of his term.

Barry is a failure, only the most partisan people don't see this.
