NY Jets owner Woody Johnson puts Country Over Football, Would Rather have a Romney win Than Jets victory


J-E-T-S … JETS!!!  R-O-M-N-E-Y … ROMNEY!!!

NY Jets owner Woody Johnson is putting country over his football team. He stated in an interview with Bloomberg when asked whether he would want a 2012 Jets winning season or a 2012 Mitt Romney Presidential election win, Johnson picked Romney. He chose country and said he thought it was very important for us, but more important for our kids and grand kids that this election come off with a Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan victory as President and Vice President.

Coming off a disastrous 34-0 loss to the 49ers on Sunday and facing this week the undefeated Houston Texans, it would appear that a winning Jets season may not be in the cards in 2012. Couple that with Revis Island closed for the season and a Jet defense that cannot stop the run, Romney is looking like a better bet.

 Jets owner Woody Johnson detailed his priorities today in an interview with Bloomberg.

Asked whether he would rather the Jets have a winning season in 2012 or Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate that Johnson has backed, take the White House in November, Johnson replied that he would “put country first” and choose a Romney victory.

This really is quite a telling statement. Johnson was not making a joke or trying to deliver a sound bite when he made the comment. The Jets owner has millions invested in the Jets and he loves his football team and would love nothing more to see them win. However, he would love to see America win more and have a Romney win and Obama loss.

As we are reminded by Jammie Wearing Fool, Woody Johnson must be thrilled that his bedraggled quarterback is running around with Obama sycophant Eva Longoria. I am sensing a change in QB to Tebow.

      I am glad to see that Mr. Johnson is rooting for the USA.

      Could it be that he is thinking ahead about the mess four more years of Obama would make of the economy and he foresees that people would not have funds for entertainment? No money for entertainment would mean his investment becomes less valuable.

      Certainly sounds good to me. Being from Boston area, any of the other big 3 in the AFC East not putting W’s up on the board is always a good thing.

      But even better, is the absolute delight many would receive if Obama also posted a loss in early November.

      Debates this week—Romney has to stand firm against the sufficient Orator and not come across as so nice. Not so stark or shocking, just stand up for himself, his beliefs and be a bit more specific on his plans to stimulate the economy, how he doesn’t feel Obama is doing enough with Iran so close to a Nuclear Weapon, all the unrest still in the Middle East, and NO JOBS HERE AT HOME. INFLATION…..Immigration Reform and how to cut spending!

      These are all the big ones, with the economy being the biggest.

      Awww , say it ain’t so! Is the only way to make it to ultra rich is to leave Joe lunchbox in the hole? Makes Obama’s solar investing look like a winner? He probably took offence at “you didn’t build that” The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority is stuck with $100 million in debt on the old stadium. The stadium is built on public land.
