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.
