Obama For Pittsburgh Steelers and American Steel

by Brad Warbiany

From the USA Today:

There’s no more doubt: President Obama says he’s rooting for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday’s Super Bowl.

“I wish the (Arizona) Cardinals the best,” the president told reporters at the White House, “but I am a long-time Steelers fan” and a friend of the Rooney family that owns the team.

And his bailout bill (c/o Cato):

None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used for a project for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public building or public work unless all of the iron and steel used in the project is produced in the United States.

I’d claim McCain is a Cardinal’s fan, but I’m not sure they exist.

  2. Ugh… My flight home from Cleveland & PA tonight was Pittsburgh -> Vegas -> Orange County. Flights into Vegas are usually interesting trips in themselves, but the added “bonus” of being surrounded by drunk obnoxious Steelers fans did NOT improve the matter.
