Will the Panthers game decide the presidential election?

A lot more could be riding on the Panthers-Redskins game this weekend than Carolina's season. If history is any indication, another Panthers loss would signal that President Barack Obama would be re-elected.

CBS Sports reports that in 17 of 18 Washington Redskins games before presidential elections, a Redskins win has been followed by the incumbent party staying in power. A Redkins loss has been followed by the opposition party taking the White House.

It's called the Redskins Rule, and it has been well  documented.

The only deviation was in 2004, when the Redskins lost to the Packers but President George W. Bush was re-elected.

The Redskins (3-5) are 3.5 point favorites over the visiting Panthers (1-6).

If the Panthers don't even try, lose the game, and make no effort to do better and then the NFL gives the Panthers some of the hard earned points on the scoreboard from the Redskins and a larger share of the funds generated from the game while at the same time chastising the Redskins for doing too well and not sharing the points on the scoreboard.....then it signals a win for Barack Obama.

Yeah, I just laid out what is happening in America. A nonsensical system like that would ruin sports and it is exactly what is happening in our country.

The Good news is if the Panthers loose and BO is re-elected, all win will be redistributed at the end of the season and the Panthers will be tied for first

When will droopy face Obama stop milking this hurricane for votes while the TV cameras are rolling using victims crying on his shoulder? Are those really victims of just homeless welfare bums for a PR stunt?

What does fatboy Christie get out of it sucking up in a photo opt with pinhead Obama? Did Obama give him a plate of freshly cooked porkchops or is he running for reelection as Gov of NJ again?
Never crawl in bed with the enemy you stupid lardass.

Obama has been a stunning success helping Black Americans in his 4 years. Unemployment up to 25% and more realistically double that at 50%.
Who got all those 5 million jobs he brags "he" created like "he" killed bin Laden?

Obamas beloved illegal aliens from south of the border got 2/3s of all jobs created in his 4 years.
Whos side is Obama on since he is gung ho to legalize about 50 million illegals with his trusty AG Holder?

Polls even? Romney should be ahead 10 pts. Sounds like a rig as the early voting was a scheme and fraud. Beware of liberal corruption in vote tallying and millions of illegals voting for their messiah they think.

Evenso with the mythical blog Romney has it wrapped up anyway if you believe in fairytales.

Get the BACKWARD welfare food stamp bum out of the WH.
