Michelle Obama to serve as Grand Marshal NASCAR Ford 400 in Swing State of Florida


Good grief, first lady Michelle Obama to serve as Grand Marshall of the NASCAR season ending Ford 400 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida.Talk about your photo-ops and pander for votes. Give it up Michelle, NASCAR is not voting for your Obama in 2012.

The NASCAR appearance is billed as part of the first lady’s “Joining Forces” initiative for military families, and Mrs. Obama’s Joining Forces co-chair, “Second Lady” Dr. Jill Biden, will also serve as Grand Marshal.

The Ford 400 is held at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida. Florida is perhaps the most critical presidential battleground state in the country.

But Mrs. Obama’s presence at one of the biggest NASCAR events of the year will surely be noticed throughout the region where the sport if popular, which includes many other critical swing states like Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Missouri and Missouri.

Indeed, the “NASCAR vote” has taken a place alongside “soccer moms” as a coveted demographic for presidential candidates.

As Weasel Zippers says, who knew that Michelle would be pandering the NASCAR vote, who as Barack Obama stated were, “bitter,” distrustful have-nots who “cling to guns or religion.” Why am I thinking there will be some booing going on at the start of the race?

      I’ve been a NASCAR fan nearly 30 years. I will NOT tune in to this race until they are on the track with he pace car.

      Michelle? Please! I assure you she’s never seen a NASCAR race in full, and if she’s there…they’d better have about 12 extra pounds of chicken wings for her to glutton down….

      NASCAR powers that be need their heads examined to have Michelle Obama be the grand marshall of an event where the Obama’s look at its fans with such disdane.

      Who’s next, Bill Mahar going to be grand marshall at Daytona 500?

      I thought Obama signed a bill to discontinue promotions…

      Please Explain

      Are we certain that this was a real invitation by the NASCAR people? This could be the result of some political pressure.

      Mr. and Mrs. Obama love all the American
      traditions. Michelle just wants to be right
      in with the celebration and be one of us.
      Barry may have driven a car at some point
      in his Organizing career also. Yup, just
      like you and me, what a great representation.
      Makes a thrill run up my leg knowing how
      much the Western Way of Life is so ‘Obamaish’.

      For the first time in my adult life I am NOT proud to be a Nascar fan.

      (EDIT) day at NASCAR FORD 400 ? … Weird .. Isn’t it interesting since Ford was the only major American manufacture of cars that ObozoX wasn’t been able to turn into government motors so they would be under this thumb for the union election paybacks … reason I buy only FORDS …
      SM: Easy, but i get your point.

      How comical is it these folks would be a grand master of a sport that uses fossil fuels.

      Did some one inform Michelle Obama that Chevy Volts were not racing?

      With GM being bought by the govt, would they have an unfair advantage in this race, just saying ;-)

    9. rightknight on November 13th, 2011 11:40 am

      The mere association of the name Jerry Sandusky
      with Penn State is enough to harm it’s image.

    10. Moi on November 13th, 2011 1:28 pm

      #8..YES, good point. Not to mention all the gas used for the folks that are driving and/or flying in. HA!

      We know NASCAR fans are mainly conservatives. This could be a ploy on either side to either (a) bring liberals around to watch NASCAR as their “queen” is there. Or (b) someone managed to get Michelle to do this thinking it will make Mr. and Mrs. Zero more popular with conservatives.

      Me thinks both ideas suck.

      NASCAR dot com .. is deleting our comments .. I am DONE with NASCAR .. Have been a fan all my life .. DONE THAT IS IT! NOBAMA!

    12. Moi on November 13th, 2011 6:07 pm

      Cat…are u also Kat? it is sad because I am sure the majority of NASCAR drivers and crew don’t support Zero.

      Marshals Moochelle Obowma and Jill Biteme
      hope to rally votes for their hubbies by
      presenting themselves at a Real American
      Tradition. This is a highly competitive sport
      with no room for ‘Social Justice’ and ‘Leveling
      of the Playing Field’. The winner will NOT
      Redistribute the hard-earned Title and
      Earnings. Hope this will not upset our
      Marxist-leaning Progressive Babes too much.

      Restrictor plates were bad enough, then the whole “Young Guns” BS then the “Car of the Future” and that two-car nose to tail driving or whatever hip term they might have coined it by now did it for me anyway.

      Freakin fake wrestling on wheels is what it is now anyway.

      Nascar must be going broke or, have fallen victim to the democrat destruction machine.

      [...] we did not call this one last week when we learned that First Lady Michelle Obama was going to be co-Grand Marshall of the Ford 400, the finale NASCAR race of the season at the Homestead-Miami [...]
