The President is NOT coming here tomorrow

HIs press secretary sent a statement to the White Sox, Obama’s favorite team, saying he was declining their invitation to stop by while he is in town to promote the stimulus package. This is the best news of the day, even better than Ethier’s settlement. And no, that has nothing to do with politics. George W. Bush showed up at games I covered on at least two occasions, and it was a pain in the derriere. I don’t care if the President is a Democrat, a Republican or a Whig, I don’t want to have to jump through a bunch of Secret Service hoops just to come to work — and I ESPECIALLY don’t want to do that on some humdrum spring-training workout day.

    Yeah that’s too inconvienant for Lapdog Tony. You got it tough. I could understand if you didn’t want to see W., the worst president in history & a war criminal. But an historic figure (he is our first African-American President, Lapdog, in case you didn’t know) like Obama, give me a break. Go back hustling for the McCourts. And by the way, the Whig Party evolved into the Republican Party which has now evolved into the KKK.

    Are you serious snuffy? Pretty pathetic when you have to hide behind your computer screen while ripping on someone that does his job very well. Save your time and grow up

    R you serious snuffy? Pretty sad when you hide behind your computer screen while you rip on someone that just does his job well with the peoples interests in mind. Grow up and save yourself from polluting a great blog.

    No one is hiding here. I’ve met Lapdog Tony, face-to-face. He’s a nice guy, just like his idol W. Also incompetent, just like W.

    snuffy – you are an embarrassment to Dodger fans and Obama voters, of which I’m both. Please, the KKK? Save the hyperbole for some below the radar rant blog.

    Anyone who’s dealt with working around a Presidential visit, even a motorcade, knows what a true inconvenience it is.

  • El Lay Dave

    snuffy – what are expecting from Tony? He’s a beat reporter, not an investigative reporter.

  • BruinFBBB

    Oh Snuffy, you can do better than that…

    *yawn*

    I don’t mind the GOP vs DEM thing, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Taking it a little too much to heart I think is pretty childish.

    My biggest gripe with Tony Jackson is that at times he displays a rather, how should I put it, lazy attitude towards his job. His posts are often times all second and third hand accounts someone has given him and I really don’t know how effective you can be at delivering Los Angeles Dodger news living and spending the majority of your time in Phoenix, AZ. I’m just saying Tony, how about a plane flight to LA and a visit to the Revine every now and then during the off season?

  • Harpo JB

    What and where is a “Revine?”

    And why should a Dodger beat reporter come to Los Angeles during spring training when the team and most of the front office staff are in Glendale?

  • BruinFBBB

    He may have meant “ravine” as in “Chavez Ravine”, where Dodger Stadium is located…but I can only speculate.

  • Brooklyn Dodger

    He’s actually amusing in a sick sort of way, and he’s certainly succeeding in getting a rise out of some of you. And if anything is troubling, it’s those responses, not his inanities. He may or may not go away if ignored, but he deserves nothing less. It’s been said before, but bears repeating. “Don’t feed the troll.”

  • BruinFBBB

    Agree with you on the don’t feed the troll sentiment…

    (but not so much on the other point…redundantly un-clever doesn’t qualify as amusing to me)

    Is Snuffy the old Juan Pierre?

  • BruinFBBB

    Oh sleep-inducing Snuff-ster…

    I realize it takes you a while to pick up on things, but you haven’t figured out that I’m grad school yet?

    I know you don’t have a Phd so it doesn’t make sense to call me uneducated. That would be like me calling you thought-provoking and insightful…

    *yawn*

  • Jayrew

    You guys are the reason people hate Dodger fans for their lack of care in what really matters. You all have a hard on for snuffy. Get over it and comment on bsaeball matters.

    Have you all forgotten how crucial the next few weeks will be in determining a whatlookstobeterrible roster (unless we sign Manny)?

    Guess Not. Ill be on the press-ebterprise Dodgers blog, please dont interrupt, stay on this site please.
