Cards Snubbed By Obama? No Traditional White House Call Following Game 7 Win

Charlie Brennan, Brett Blume

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  Was President Barack Obama too busy watching the “Operation Repo” marathon or something else last Friday night?

When KMOX host Charlie Brennan asked now-retired St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa how the traditional call of congratulations from the White House went, La Russa suddenly realized that…it never happened.

“That’s a good point, I hadn’t really even thought about that,” replied a surprised-sounding La Russa, who can be forgiven for having a few other things on his mind over the past week.  “As we were getting into the World Series we had a call from the White House to make sure they had the correct number for my office.”

But as the wild, champagne-drenched celebration of the team’s 11th World Series title was going on in the locker room, that phone never rang.

“We never did get a call,” La Russa said.

And all this despite the fact that the First Lady, Michelle Obama, was in town for Game 1 of the World Series.

“Very impressive, too.” La Russa recalled of his meeting with the First Lady.

Obama didn’t immediately phone last year’s World Series champions, either. But the San Francisco Giants did hear from him eventually:


And the President also hosted the Giants at the White House this summer, where he congratulated them personally.

Whether or not President Obama picks up the phone, or invites him and his team to Washington, TLR doesn’t seem too worried about the apparent slip in postgame protocol.

He’s packing up his things and getting ready to “head west” for the next phase of his life.

La Russa will vacate his office at Busch Stadium as of Friday.

He’s contemplating his next step, which could be buying a minor league ballclub, writing his memoirs, or simply pursuing one of his passions…reading.

He’s currently checking out “The Affair” by Lee Child.

La Russa also said that if asked, he would come back to manage the National League squad during next summer’s All-Star Game, which he earned by guiding the Cardinals to the NL pennant.

    He would have called if they’d just won some soccer game.

    1. Nate C says:

      The president’s things are Football and Basketball. I would have been honored if he hadn’t called. Then I would know that he thinks that I am an “enemy” to him.;)

      1. marty2749 says:

        He didn’t call the Packers when they won the Super Bowl last year either…such a schmuck….well not until about 6 months later anyhow…

      2. Steve . says:

        USA Today says he was at “Diwali Reception” (for Hindu festival of lights) after a “low-key day”. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2011/10/obamas-day-briefings-and-a-diwali-reception/1

      3. teaisstronger says:

        OBAMA IS CONVINCED THE CARDINAL TEAM IS A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH TEAM WHO’S MASCOT IS A RED BIRD.

        Obama will place the Cardinal team on his Kill List.

    2. HiHeels says:

      commie ball or basketball , but then he has been snubbed by pro athletes not accepting wh invites and half of nascar snubbed his invite..
      He knows where he stands with the anti liberal pro Americans,
      i dont how his poll numbers are in the 40’s

      1. keith wren says:

        This is simple…40% 0f America are either government union types or welfare types. obummer will ALWAYS have 40% approval rating.

      2. Harley2002 says:

        40% 0f America are either government union types or welfare types. obummer will ALWAYS have 40% approval rating.

        Actually 45% pay no taxes so he is in the negative. That is why the Marxists want to legalize illegal aliens that would put them 50% of people on government assistance. Perfect voting majority.

      3. GL Lee says:

        They really not. They cannot be. Considering that liberals make up about 20% of voting aged people it’s impossible.

    3. freecheese says:

      He beez only interested in bassit – bow !

      1. Tom Halleck says:

        Ø-man AM ony intamarested in bassit bow.

    4. teaisstronger says:

      A MUSLIM CANNOT CONGRATULATE A CHRISTIAN TEAM

      Maybe Obama thought the Cardinals are a White Catholic Church team. Cardinals?
      The Cardinals better change their name.

    5. NooYawkah says:

      I hear that he’s very uncomfortable with an American team claiming to be champions of the whole world.

    6. Joe P. Fritzbocker says:

      He couldn’t call because his teleprompter was broken.

  2. Ron says:

    The reason is thy are not from Chicago. Why would winners want to see a loser

    1. J.Cog says:

      Now that,s just mean . Do you think Chicago fans would say that to Cards fans ?

      1. Jim in Houston says:

        I think he was referring to O’Blamer.

  3. Fred Williams says:

    Did they really want a call from that az_whole? Sick of that POS!

    1. Bill Bret says:

      Hillary was RIght! He cannot even pick up the phone at 3am without first plugging in his telepromter! Everything he touches goes south and that includes “SPEECHES”!

    2. RHO says:

      Agreed. He is a goon, a gangster.

  4. Aaron says:

    Probably did not get the call because LaRussa and Puhols were Glenn Beck’s 8/28 in Washington DC last year.

    1. Alabama Dave says:

      Ding Ding DIng- Spot on.

    2. TiminPhx says:

      And Obama has shown himself to be a petty individual that way. He’s also against almost every American tradition and his ego is such that he thinks everything is about him.

      1. jimonthebeach says:

        Well said, TP. Obama is too petty and too arrogant to think of anyone other than himself. But he’ll make the call when he wants their votes.

      2. dfinch says:

        I believe he’s very vindictive.

    3. lvmaryvis says:

      Bingo Aaron.

    4. Biff Tannen says:

      Without question, this man has the correct answer.

    5. freecheese says:

      yo, bro. da reazon he dont like call dem beez cause day dont beez a bassit bow team .

  5. Roger Judkins says:

    Told you there were no muslims on the Cards…

  6. bikermailman says:

    I’m a Rangers fan, and this ticks me off. You guys earned it, and O’Bumbles fell short. Again. Oh, and Aaron, you could be right. He’s just that petty.

    1. Hill Billy says:

      Rangers Fan here too. I’m with you! But not surprised at any low class behavior from Obama!
      BTW, congratulations Cardinals! You have an awesome line up! And good luck with Pujols.

    2. texsis44 says:

      Rangers fan in West Texas. However, I want to congratulate the Cards on a great job! Sorry the (not our) Prez broke yet another American tradition–the congratulatory call! Best wishes!

    3. oliver klozhoff says:

      And another Rangers fan from FW. Great series and congrats to the Cards. Not a surprising move by the man child president. Ever see him throw out a first pitch?

    4. Dafishman65 says:

      Not suprised at all with the blow off. I think the Glenn Beck thing may be spot on.. And hey Texas fans, Card fan here. You guys have a lot to look forward to with a good young team. Awsome series!!! You all will have another shot in the future I’m sure if they can keep some of your young guys around and your manager is a class act. Really enjoyed this series, could of gone either way.

  7. Ted says:

    La Russa “can be forgiven for having a few other things on his mind,” but the President can’t be?

    1. Justin Brewer says:

      I agree Ted, as a life long conservative and Cardinal fan I found that statement to be a little over the top.

    2. Cluster_Chuck says:

      La Russa doesn’t have a staff of hundreds to remind him of such things. DUH.

    3. Michael Brittain says:

      All you have to do is remember that William DeWitt jr served on the Foreign Relations Advisory Board under GWB and his spouse served on the National Council of the Arts under the same administration.

      He didn’t forget, just realized that they wouldn’t vote for him for give a hefty campaign contribution.

    4. WHCA dude says:

      I ran the WH switchboard in 1990s, and these calls are managed and set up between the WH staff and the WH Comm Agency switchboard. The Prez just says some time during one of his scheduling briefs that yes he would like to call the winner. So he didn’t have the ability for it NOT to come to his attention. He made a conscious decision or his staff as many have said is inept!

      1. jimonthebeach says:

        I think this was a conscious snub because he has no interest in the people of Missouri and now they’ll have no interest in him.

  8. jASON says:

    Someone should tell Obama that the Cardinals are from St. Louis, MO….NOT TEXAS!

    1. the Spottedstone says:

      It’s tough, you know, trying to remember the names of all 57 states.

  9. Richard says:

    Missouri is “fly-over country” for Obama and his ilk. We won’t see him until he wants our votes again.

    1. Jim in Houston says:

      Again? You gotta be kidding.

  10. hoser says:

    Could be because Missouri has the “BEST” imigration Laws in the country. Here are my two favorites: In Missouri , illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET. and In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri ‘s public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States .

    1. THE TRUTH says:

      Missouri’s laws might be the “Best,” but they are not enforced. Go to St Charles and several parts of the city, and you will find plenty.

    2. PeteM says:

      Wish California was the same!

    3. krp says:

      Nor do they have access anywhere in the country, as the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 barred them from that on the Federal Level.

      Whatever state level “benefits” may exist are not controlled by the Federal Law.

    4. Vicky Bevis says:

      Thanks hoser. I just got the Missouri Immigration Laws revision on a forward & of course, cked. snopes. Nothing, but then again, I notice they miss a lot these days & of course, it has nothing to do with who’s in the White House!

      Anyway, play nice boys! B.O. is hardly home enough to take time to call a congrads. to ANYONE. He must have the mother-of-all-jet lags.

  11. nobamamama2012 says:

    You’re right POTUS POS can’t do anything right. He’s proven that repeatedly.

    1. noname says:

      Straw man. SHA didn’t say the president can’t do anything wrong. SHA said he can’t do anything right according to the right. If he had made the call, you would be complaining about him having better things to do. Since he didn’t call, you have to complain about that.

      In my opinion, he has better things to do, and shouldn’t be bothered with silly things like this.

  12. Jerry says:

    St Louis is in mid-America; fly over country. Obama could care less.

  13. Ralph says:

    Obama has no class; he is a petty, bitter thug. Way to go St. Louis! Congratulations! Next summer you can tell him you are to busy to go to the White House!!!

    1. Biff Tannen says:

      True dat

  14. Travis Busbar says:

    I heard Obama tried to call but no one would pick up the phone. Go figure.

    1. Jim in Houston says:

      If I saw his name on my caller ID I would let the phone keep on ringing too.

  15. lovetron says:

    It’s the previous administration’s fault.

  16. DEUS VULT says:

    To HELL with the fraud “resident” obama!
    2102-SAVE THE REPUBLIC!
    KICK “zero!”, “moooch” and the pooch to the curb!

    1. DEUS VULT says:

      woops 2012!!!

    2. christine says:

      It’s understandable…2102 is the year we finally recover from the last three.

    3. JulianusRex says:

      What do you have against the pooch? It’s not his fault.

  17. Joe "The Dolt" Byden says:

    The jerk has no class. He proves it over and over and over and over …

  18. Anger White Man says:

    If it would have been a soccer game from Iraq he would have been there first hand. What a major jerk but when they move their goes the neighborhood!

  19. Matt Power says:

    Well, one of Obama’s favorite players on the Oakland White Sox was Yogi Berra. So there’s that…

    1. krp says:

      Yogi was born in Saint Louis.

    2. Biff Tannen says:

      He has many fond childhood memories of his days at Cominsky Field

      1. Lorita Miller says:

        His Childhood for the first 10 years were spent in foreign countries. Obama has no
        genuine attachment for this country whatever!

  20. NoWaysTarred says:

    …Maybe the teleprompter broke down again?

  21. abbey says:

    The Cardinals are snubbed? How about Jesus Christ? Now Obama, the goon, is REALLY snubbing him……and I think someday he just might regret it.

  22. Sorely Frickey says:

    >He’s currently checking out “The Affair” by Lee Child.

    I knew there was some Jack Reacher in Tony!

  23. Al Phresceaux says:

    Just another one of those things Americans understand that he does not.

  24. me321 says:

    11 electoral votes go to the GOP

  25. nemisis says:

    “Schmuck” is most often used in American English as a pejorative or insult, meaning an obnoxious, contemptible person; one who is stupid, foolish, or detestable.

    1. Vicky Bevis says:

      Personally, if we are using Yiddish to describe someone of his stature, I prefer the noun, PUTZ. I suspect most of Israel agrees with me!

  26. Obama says:

    The guy’s not black. I ain’t talking to him.

  27. TheReal99Percent says:

    He would never cure cancer, he’s not that smart and would stifle the s*** out of business to the point where there would be no incentive to invent the cure anyway. Hey, by the way, isn’t there a police car you and your buddies are supposed to be out defecating on? What are you doing on a corporation built piece of technology writing comments on a website run by a corporation?

  28. Private says:

    That’s because Obama is un-Amercan and he’s a traitor. The jack ass needs to be sent packiing now.

  29. Joe says:

    Obama is just a phony American.

  30. SS Agent Standing at the Door says:

    The presidents horseface looking wife announced during the 8th inning that she had just finished her period and the prez was then to busy to call La Russa in the lockeroom.

    1. Charles Durbin says:

      she is not horse.. post op-tranny

  31. sharon says:

    I didn’t vote for the idiot. And he is an idiot….. Congratulations Cards! fantastic series!!

  32. Frank Slaby says:

    If B. Hussein ever called me, I’d just hang up anyway. What’s the big deal?

  33. Frankie Lorain says:

    F*ck obama anyway. He won’t win his next championship.

  34. BigBounce says:

    Hey give the guy a break. He’s busy running all 59 states!

  35. MHumen says:

    From a Rangers fan:Sorry Cardinal fans. Cards and Rangers played a great series. This fraud in the WH is too concerned with himself to care about. I hope all Cardinl fans remember and help vote him out. If you voted for him to prove you weren’t a racist, vote him out to prove you are ot stupid.

    1. krp says:

      He is too broken up over the delayed start of the NBA season.

    2. krp says:

      Missouri will reject him and Claire MacCaskill, so this doesn’t matter. But there are a lot of Cardinal fans in South Illinois. Maybe they can gang together enough to counteract the Daley machine in Chicago and turn that state Cardinal Red.

  36. Il Bui says:

    Obumbler doesn’t even have enough IQ to use a teleprompter. No worries about him finding a cure for anything.

  37. flackjacket5 says:

    Contribute to his presidential campaign: get a call. Otherwise, the team will probably get a call from the IRS.

  38. HughGKnutts says:

    Funny how Obama never seems to miss issuing a statement for a muslim holiday.

  39. Steve says:

    Well, they DID do it without the government’s help.

  40. Brian says:

    you are a typical lame liberal. Your messiah is perfect and you are blind. he is a joke…the world is laughing at him…and you uneducated libs.

    1. noname says:

  41. VoteHimOut11/6/12 says:

    Obama is un-American, anti-American. Why would he carry on with a great American tradition? In one year & two days we can vote this clown out of office.

  42. daniel says:

    @S.H.America
    Name ONE thing this prez has done right in the past 3.5 yrs. Just ONE, one policy that’s all I’m asking.

    1. Ron says:

      Well he ….. Well he ….. Darn what was the question again?

    2. noname says:

      He helped repeal don’t ask don’t tell.

    3. Mike says:

      HE didn’t…his LAME DUCK Senate did…

    4. Bill Bret says:

      “Homeda….Homeda…Homeda….Ed Norton?”

  43. Chris says:

    Why would anyone want a phone call from Obama?????

    1. Jim in Houston says:

      Not only NO, but HELL NO!

  44. the Spottedstone says:

    There he was last week, hob-knobbing around the G20 meeting in Cannes, shaking hands of his contemporaries, until he sees the PM of Turkey, who he embraces with open arms, hugging and whispering into his ear. Take a guess at what he was saying? “Yes Brother, do not worry. We will see to the destruction of all Catholics – including the Cardinals.”

  45. irishalaman says:

    He was too busy laughing with and hugging the Muslim PM of Turkkey to call
    the non-socialist lnon-liberal, proud of America Cardinals, until an appropriate time.
    Maybe during Ramadan….

  46. jim says:

    Remember, our president is a Chicago Machine politician first and foremost. If the Cardinals could get him elected, he’d call. But they can’t, so he won’t.

  47. schatzi says:

    “Project Runway” is more his speed…but look for him on “Biggest Loser” next year.

  48. John Best says:

    That’s because his favorite team while growing up was the White Sox (even though when asked he couldn’t name a single player) who played at KAMINSKI Park

    1. krp` says:

      he grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii. What’s the connection with the White Sox?

  49. Retired Ron says:

    The POTUS is required to prepare and present a State of the Union address, nothing in the rules about having to call a winning baseball team.

    1. John Best says:

      He’s probably too busy doing due diligence on solar his company investments.

    2. krp says:

      Tradition, Tradition, Tradition – Fiddler on the Roof

  50. Magneto says:

    Baseball is not a Communist game and its not from Kenya. A white man dreamed it up. So why would this turd call?

  51. Obama sux says:

    Baseball is too white and republicanish for the left-wing ideologue president. Obama sux and why is the first lady at a baseball game anyway? Did she buy the tickets with her own money? Stupid question, I know.

  52. linda copeland says:

    I was privleged to be in St.Louis on Friday when they won the series. Too bad that he didnt pay attention. St Louis doesnt realize that they have other sports teams, it is all the Cardinals.
    I rooted for Texas, but I cant disagree with the Cards. They deserved to win, and I am a proud Missourian who celebrates their 11th World Series win. Ok, I live in KC and used to root for the Athletics in the 1950’s and 60’s, I admit it.
    I like winners, and the Cards are winners.

  53. John Sheridan says:

    He may never call. Too many White and not enough Black players. Shoot, even the manager was White……..and you expect Barry to call?

  54. David Mac says:

    Hard to imagine that. He sent 3 condolence letters to a Gold Star mother I know. Imagine how she felt. Was it because he cared so much or he’s just in over his head? But heck they all had his name stamped on them.. So Tony don’t feel so bad.Maybe it is a blessing in disguise.

  55. brett says:

    The real beauty of the situation is how illuminating it is: The “rockstar” image the liberal media built out of lies and misrepresentations to get Obama elected has crumbled into such insignificant pieces that LaRussa didn’t even realize he didn’t get a call from the President of the United States.

    Fire up the propaganda machine, CBS! You’ve got more work to do for 2012.

  56. Jim from Boston says:

    This guy is a pathetic, clueless, clump of excrement. Three years on the job now and he still doesn’t have the slightest clue about how to “BE” president of the United States. He seems to genuinely hate traditional American culture.

    C’mon, a simple phone call? To the team that won a very exciting, 7-game World Series? America’s pastime? OK, Barry, baseball is too “American” for you, I get it. So, how many people work in your public relations office? 50? 100? 500? They couldn’t churn out a White House press release congratulating the Cardinals?

    Election day can’t come soon enough.

  57. Carl Curmudgeon says:

    The DeWitts, John Mozeliak, and Tony La Russa are, in Obama’s words, “typical white person(s).”

    I wouldn’t sit next to your phone waiting for a call, Tony.

  58. commenter says:

    St. Louisans and Cardinal fans can more than return the snub in november 2012. Perhaps it is even an honor NOT to be associated with Mr. Obama

  59. Casper says:

    What a freakin a.hole!

  60. Big Bear says:

    It’s all part of his hopey-changey BS. Anything traditional gets tossed to the curb.

    Next up. Abolishing Daylight Savings Time because he can.

  61. The Obama says:

    Looks like a bunch of white boys playing a kids game to me.
    I
    got bigger fish to fry.

    Not worth my time.

  62. Chicago Nick says:

    Obama the One Percenter likes Polo on the weekends when he’s not jammin’ down some dunks on his presidential lowered jam rim.

  63. do not go over there says:

    Maybe Missouri is a red state?

    1. krp says:

      Lot of Cardinal fans in Southern Illinois which ain’t… Maybe they can gang together and make it one next year.

  64. bif sucks ass says:

    Reading these comments you draw one conclusion Bif likes to suck ass.

  65. gc says:

    would you expect different from this self absorbed arrogant POS we have posing as president?

  66. Jose says:

    Obama is lazy and a liar. Everything the Cards are not. Plus, Obama is a loser.

  67. Joseph McLinden says:

    C’mon, the president is busy. He’s got that jobs bill, the Cap n’ Trade, Obamacare, and now the 2012 campaign. He can’t be out in the Rose Garden playing around with millionaires and billionaires…who don’t even play his sport. Did you ever see him throw?

  68. Tony says:

    Did he really need to read from notes to handle that phone call?

  69. ben405 says:

    He was obviously too busy writing his list of lies for his next campaign speech.

  70. Neil says:

    It’s Obama and his administration’s either lack of respect or ignorance of such simple traditional gestures that make him look even less endearing. He can’t win on any fronts, he’s been a horrible domestic leader, his foreign policy is a contradiction, his policies pushed through a Democratic Congress have crippled the economy, and now this inability to make an effort for simple fluffy PR moves. The guy is simply a complete failure.

  71. Real American says:

    oblamo only knows ghettoball………….nothing else matters cuz they are too smart to be obamasycophants

  72. big D says:

    yall realize he is overseas at the G20 summit right, so im pretty sure yall just racist
    obama 2012

    1. krp says:

      Ya realize that the World Series was last week right so we’re pretty sure you’re just as ignorant as all the rest of the losers that put that loser in office.

      Ya realize that I have yet to hear of a single person that voted for McCain that wished they voted for Obama, but I hear of a lot of people that voted for Obama that will vote for anyone that runs against him.

    2. pianoguy says:

      Gee, I didn’t realize the series lasted all the way to last night. I’d have watched it the rest of it. Congratulations, Cards.

  73. You Don't Say says:

    No phone call from Obama? Hmmm…

    Well you know Baseball is America’s Pastime, afterall!

    Can we see Obama’s official birth certificate again?

  74. Rick O'Shea says:

    They must be republicans?

  75. buckeyejim says:

    Hey be happy, I would not want to talk to Barry (low life ) Obozo on the phone or in person.. Anyway Barry is to busy getting plans together for his next vacation.

  76. Bill E. Bob says:

    Don’t feel bad Cards fans. He probably wouldn’t have called the Rangers had they won. This administration doesn’t seem to think too highly of Texas or Missouri.

  77. Manny says:

    Obama, like all modern liberals, despises success, especially when it comes without any government handouts. If you achieve something through your own hard work, and dedication, that sets a dangerous precedent. People might start getting ideas, and we can’t have that now can we?

  78. Bill Chilton says:

    Just how un-American can you get?!?! 368 days and counting, Let’s see if he gets a call then……

  79. Dennis in WV says:

    Obama was glued to the NBA package channel, waiting for some round ball action to start.

  80. Joe says:

    Who was at the Glen Beck rally last year? Albert Pujos and Tony La Russa! Of course, Obama wouldn’t call them. You don’t agree with him, you get shunned. This is why San Francisco got the call. They are liberal. Makes perfect sense to me.

  81. JimDeep says:

    It’s a “white man’s sport”.

    1. krp says:

      It’s a thinking man’s sport.
      That’s probably the reason right there.

  82. John Bisel says:

    It’s because LaRussa had some positive comments about the Tea Party a few months ago, Obama is a vindictive little weasel who only kisses up to his fellow Socialists.

    1. Antilibturd says:

      You got that right!

    He was very busy shredding Solyndra files, and calling his pals at occupy Saint Louis. . Give the guy a break.

  84. fred dean says:

    Please anybody but obama in 2012.

  85. Tyrell McPimpscoon says:

    of course he doesn’t care…he’s a Cub fan from Kenya

  86. max frisson says:

    Who cares? Ball sports have got to be the big waste of energy and time in America.

  87. dconn says:

    If it was a gangsta basketball team they’d have been given the red carpet treatment.

  88. Robert Muller says:

    Well now they know what Israel feels like. Also like obamas cabinet who he has not talked to in the past few years.

  89. philly says:

    Winners (Cards) shouldn’t associate with losers, anyway.

  90. Carl Curmudgeon says:

    Red birds on yellow bats > Failed community organizer

  91. philly says:

    So, he makes one little mistake and you all get sooo upset. He was told to call the cardinals and he called the cardinals in Rome to congratulate them. It was a simple mistake that anyone could have made. What is wrong with you folks? He is giving all of us who don’t work everything that we want.

  92. Jon Carry says:

    I would love to get a phone call from Barack Obama! It would be so much fun to watch it go straight into voice mail. Then, I could delete it without listening to it!

  93. John Turner says:

    As a long time Cardinal fan we need a call from a White Sox/Cub fan loser because…….?

  94. J W Majors Majors says:

    He just dissed God on refusing to have FDR Prayer at the WW2 Memorial. So Cards are in good Company. Can’t get lower than that.

  95. Joshua says:

    Who cares if he doesnt call? He is just a loser anyway! Who wants to hear from him anyway? At this point the not even the country wants a call frm Obama since that means the further destruction of America….Cardinal fans, count yourselves lucky.

  96. millie says:

    Not a smart move for the man who wears mom jeans…..but I suppose he has all those St. Louis votes in the bag either way.

  97. kimdi01 says:

    How many Cardinal players and management contributed to King Barry’s 2012 campaign? Probably not enough to even get a phone call! A few dollars more and they could have been bailed out of all their expenses like Solyndra and the Finnish car maker.

  98. MoCal says:

    After attaining such a high level of accomplishment, and winning the World Series, the Cardinals didn’t want to stoop the depths of meeting Barry Soetoro, who could blame them…

  99. mjk says:

    Obama finally got something right?

  100. mjk says:

    I actually am surprised. After all, the Obama administration should appreciate a city with high crime rates and low IQ’s. Those are his constituents.

    1. krp says:

      You’re thinking EAST St Louis.

  101. Ted Williams says:

    The tradition is pretty dumb anyway and I don’t even like the Prez.

  102. Lou Ann Watson says:

    “That’s a good point, I hadn’t really even thought about that,” replied a surprised-sounding La Russa …. obviously he doesn’t care whether the self centered commander in thief called at all…although he has class and won’t say that

  103. John L Jordan says:

    Ask Obama how many feet between the bases in a Major League park and he’d guess wrong. Ask Obama how many men make up a regular season Major League roster and he’d guess wrong. Ask Obama the name of the General Manager responsibile for bringing Jackie Robinson to the Bigs and Obama would have no idea. Obama knows nothing about nothing…and that includes everything. Obama is the emptiest of all Empty Suits.

  104. Pete says:

    What does the “Anointed One” have against the Cardinals? Are they all Tea Party members?

  105. Kent says:

    I’d bet it’s not a snub of the Cards, it’s yet another example that even three years into the term the staff remains inept. This blunder is brought to you by the same people that scheduled the State of the Union address without even bothering to ask the Speaker about the schedule of the House. Right now the White House is filled with clowns and Bozo is in charge.

  106. Silence Dogood says:

    If he calls, the right will be mad he’s wasting time on sports and not fixing the economy. If he doesn’t call, they are mad for breaking protocol. Morons.

  107. TexasForever says:

    Its too bad BO did not call…..Cardinals could have HUNG UP on the Marxist- in -Chief!
    Obama is the ENEMY WITHIN!

  108. Bill says:

    When you are born in and grow up in Kenya, soccer is your national game, not baseball.

  109. Thomas in Jacksonville says:

    Please namwe one thing he has done right. It took him over 12 hours to decied to give the go ahead for the seals to get OBL!

  110. volt007 says:

    As a Cardinals fan, I am glad that we are NOT associated with our Communist in Chief. He can call on Mohammad or whoever he deals with…

  111. trey says:

    The less I see that POS the better.

  112. Dan says:

    Maybe he something more important to do… Like pretty much anything else than calling up a baseball manager.

  113. Bob Sanders says:

    SHA put up the straw man. No one would complain about the President calling the winner of the World Series. That’s what Presidents traditionally do. Quit making up things that the “Right Wing” will complain about. We complain about legitimate things like hanging out on MArtha’s Vineyard while most Americans can’t afford to go to the movies.

  114. jeff b says:

    Even if invited, they should stay away from Obama. He’s too full of himself.

  115. Richard_Iowa says:

    Typical for someone who engages in cultural and class warfare. $10 bucks says that someone high up in the Cardinals organization is a known Republican.

  116. capoprimo says:

    Obviously a remark made by misinformed, ignorant Progressie/ Liberal, wake up and smell the coffee and get out of La La Land!

  117. Dan says:

    Looks like my Cardinals caught a break! The Stanlinist in Chief was to busy planning to RUIN America even more to call. Very nice.

  118. Mike says:

    Another reason to believe Obam@ is not an American Citizen……………

  119. Jay says:

    He’s so busy being ” clever” telling the leaders at the summit that he has to get American’s jobs…….They couldn’t care less and he thinks he’s setting the stage for his re-election….by saying it’s not about his re-election…..lol! He’s so clever! He cares so much about jobs in America, that’s why he’s not even in the US……
    say goodbye to this clown……oh, by the way….he owns the occupy wall st mess…..

  120. BlownfuelCoupe says:

    Haven’t you heard, this “Fellow” only respects Gangsta’ B-Ball.

  121. BlownfuelCoupe says:

    Slam Dunk the Moron.

  122. sportsAreforKids says:

    It’s friggin baseball. Hit the ball. Run. Hit the ball. Run. Congratulations.

  123. krp says:

    They like cricket.

    Kareem Abdul Jabbar was a Musim.

  124. TheRealKingMax says:

    Not much more I could say that hasn’t been said, and said well….

    To the Cards: you’ll pulled it out when many folks had written you off. As a Baltimore Orioles fan (stop laughing!), what the Cards did was a sign of real class, professionalism, and heart.

    Congrats to you and your fans!

    As for Obama…

    Pardon me, folks, but I must leave you now to take one.

  125. Clearhead says:

    mr. obama would never associate himself with anything named “CARDINALS” That sounds WAY too much like a Christian word. Change the team’s name to “RADICALS” and if you win next year, he’ll have one of his czars contact you.

  126. American says:

    What does a muslim from Kenya know about baseball anyway?…

  127. Chris says:

    Who gives a flying – – – -!

  128. WilliamPenn says:

    Obama and his Administration have no class. They have publicly shown utter contempt for Queen Elizabeth, Dalai Lama, Netanyahu, and other of our allies. They care about one thing, the communist takeover of America and this has begun with Obama’s OWS movement.

  129. Elinor says:

    Someone need to remind Jug ears that St. Louis is not from the 54th state aas he claimed the U.S. had!

  130. American says:

    Sports have become WAY over rated…who cares,anymore? only the millionairs owners and the Millinaire players, at this point,…but, anyways what do you expect from an unAmerican Usurper president?

  131. Gerry says:

    You have to remember that Obama is a racist and a basketball fan. The team and coach probably looked a bit too white to him so he declined to call. I will decline to vote for him also.

  132. judithod says:

    Obama only calls campaign contributors and bundlers. The guy wants to continue freeloading on taxpayers.

  133. norbert g. ginsel says:

    Simple reason: It was the world series. Now if it had been the NBA playoffs, it would have been a different story. The man-child is who he is…. a Chicago “player” wannabe playing President, and failing to rise to the nation’s need.

    And yes, I said “nation’s” need as opposed the desires of his leftist and hoodlum constituency. Any bets as to whether he will, directly or by proxy, meet with the organizers of OSW?

  134. Bill says:

    Obama probably thought the Cardinals were Catholic, and being a Muslim, chose not to call.

  135. Dennis Vest says:

    He’ll call now that there’s a news story out there. What a freakin’ loser he is anyway. He won’t carry Missouri anyway & he knows it…

  136. sylvie says:

    Yet another prime example how UN-AMERICAN Obama really is. He backs Arab Spring. His only objective right now is to re-arrange the middle east for his handlers. So obvious. But why so obvious? Because Americans have lost their spine, the scorpions have liquified their spines and are sucking them right out of Americans. Keep playing your video games, and getting that latest cellphone and other cute little toys. They cost you, but when you go to the supermarket, just look at that bread, milk, veggies and meat as cute expensive little toys, because they are going to cost the same! Same goes for the gas you will need to get to work to pay for all it, and don’t forget you have to pay enormous amounts to keep yourself from freezing this summer. Good luck with all that, and thank Obama and his cronies for all it. They prepared your plate for you, so eat your peas!

  137. Mike says:

    Afraid this time, the man has a good excuse. The World Series conflicted with the annual “Camel Crusade Caravan” race… and this year was named the Memorial Osama Obama Bash… So, Biden was suppose to make the call. HE called the Arizona Cardinals.

  138. AynRand Lives says:

    LaRussa and Albert were key speakers at Glenn Beck’s 8/28 event. Obama is a vengeful hateful person.

  139. bt1911 says:

    It’s America’s game….Why is anyone surprised?

    p.s. Todd are a nitwit.

  140. Miss Biddles says:

    Not surprised. Obama seems to forget the traditions in this country that make us unique and special. How long does it take to make a phone call to say “congratulations”? November 2012 cannot come soon enough. We must get this empty suit out of the White House!

  141. david says:

    too many white guys, patriots, and christians on the cardinal team – do you really think this muslium/communist/racist president is going to call………..?

  142. labillyboy says:

    Barry is from Chicago, nobody from Chicago would ever congratulate the St Louis Cardinals for anything. As a Cubs fan, there is nothing worse than seeing the stinking Cardinals win any game, much less a Series. I hope he never calls and forgets to invite them ti the White House… I might even think about voting for him if he pulled a complete snub…. ahhh, no, I guess I can’t do tthat… but i would at least agree with him on something.

  143. Amsterdam Wiley says:

    Obviously there are trolls on here who are trying to make it look like everyone
    against Obama is a racist. Not true. Baseball is a traditionally pro-American
    past time, and Obama has not done anything that is pro-American. It is not
    surprising that he would also not participate in the call of congratulations
    either. I don’t like it. That doesn’t mean that I am a racist though!!

  144. Ingab says:

    Who cares? Besides I can never figure out why its called the ‘World Series’ when they only play against US teams.
    Right now I expect nothing from the empty suite and sorry excuse of a President. We have protesters all around the country that he and his administration are inciting/patronizing. When ever did we have a Pres. who does that? Normally a leader tries to quell these situations that are starting to get out of hand. He owns this mess now. A ‘Leader’ would go on national TV and explain to the protesters that this isn’t helping business nor the economy and to please go home. Our standard for a President is at an all time low!

  145. Margie Jones says:

    Tony And Albert are both friends of Glenn Beck and attended his restoring courage event last year.

  146. Mike says:

    Yo! Wassup? not enugg bros on the team???

  147. Shauna says:

    Obama is so self centered.

    I think he is Europe right now, but I believe every other President would have made the call.

    He probably can’t do the math to figure out the time difference.

    Obama is math challenged that is why he brags about creating a couple of jobs at a million tax dollars a pop. We would do better if he just paid the money directly.

    Our economy can not recover until Obama has gone on to greener pastures. Don’t feel sorry for him, he doesn’t like the job much and the retirement benefits are the best in the world. He’ll do fine out of office.

  148. Pat Ryan says:

    Of course he did not call. It did not matter you won, MO and TX are deep red states, he couldn’t care less.

  149. Sterling Headset says:

    Is it really appropriate or eve legal under Shariah law for the Mullah to call a national sports team?

  150. Alice_Polarbear says:

    Maybe he mistook the Cardinals for those high-ranking Catholic prelates, also referred to as Cardinals. We’ve all begun to realize that he’s not too bright. Given his hatred for Christianity, naturally he’d snub them.

  151. TheGood1 says:

    It’s nice to see all the congrats to the Cardinals from the Ranger fans. Looks like the classiest fans from the AL and NL were in the World Series this year. Very cool. I think I found my favorite AL team good luck Rangers.

  152. shaggy says:

    I would hang up on him anyway.

  153. ByteRider says:

    I don’t see what the problem is…

    Obama IS NOT the President, so why would he be calling anyone? The Kenyan Muslim respects no tradition in this country.

  154. Polyanna LaTigra says:

    What a clod!

  155. Joliet says:

    It is just a game. Not everyone cares that much about sports. There are many more pressing matters in this country than who won a sports competition. Get over yourselves. Sports competitions are just not that important.

    1. eLaureen says:

      u are soooo missing the point!!!

  156. cbinflux says:

    He was polishing His golf clubs, and the time just slipped a way.

  157. Daryl Kriefall says:

    too many white people on the cards roster, and it is typically a white sport…why would obummer care?

  158. kcsparky says:

    What do you expect….baseball is not played in most Muslim countries.

  159. Spud says:

    Just another reason to NOT re-elect this turkey

  160. Roger says:

    Don’t forget, that phone call is an American tradition. Obamao is probably ashamed of it and doesn’t want to participate.

  161. bugubert says:

    one of two possitiblities: 1) missou reps thwarted prez basketball jones on one of his mass-tran projects, so true to jones’s nature, he’s taking it out on the whole state, or 2) prez. b. jones is wrapped entirely in convo with commish stern, and didnt happen to notice that there WAS a world series. take yo pick . . .

  162. Barry Levy says:

    Obozo, our clown in chief, makes another funny by inviting the 1985 Superbowl winners, but not the current World Series Winners, breaking with tradition.

    But in truth, why would anyone on the Cardinals want to meet this man, and what would they have in common.

    Maybe if they go to the white house, they can bring their checkbooks and start to pay their fair share, as they are the 1%, while Obozo, loves and respects the 99% that wants the Cardinals to pay their fair share.

    But in the spirit of being a clown, and being funny, he never tells anyone what a fair share is.

    But in times of problems, why are we so enamored of this photo op anyways.

  163. Reality says:

    St.Louis represents traditional Americana,the impostor in chiet ain’t Americam,all too easy,he has only one year left to implmemnt his plan,oh,and the rumblings from military friends,oh my!

  164. Ben Schaffer says:

    Or maybe, just maybe he had more important things to do than concern himself with sports? (I’m against Obama dont’ get me wrong but this country’s obsession with sports is ridiculous when you think about all the important issues out there).

  165. B. R. Taylor says:

    I don’t think he likes baseball. On Opening Day in 2009, he went to Germany instead of throwing out the first pitch — another baseball/WH tradition he ignores.

  166. Charles Durbin says:

    For all of you that voted to show you were not racist.. hope you vote for anyone else to show your not Idiots this time.. Cain/Paul 2012

  167. Lynn says:

    O’blamer isn’t American. He doesn’t “get” baseball.

  168. Tom Payne says:

    Baseball, apple pie, honoring the flag, honoring veterans… Of what use of these things to Obama? Does anyone think this guy has any use for America anymore? I can’t wait to rid our country of this liberal boob and everyone like him!

  169. Occupied Website says:

    What do expect from a Girlie-Man President who can’t even throw a baseball.

    1. tommie says:

      Hmmm…Girlie-Man… Don’t forget that Bush was a CHEERLEADER in college. I think that’s kind of girlie…IMO. I personally don’t care how a president throws a ball really.

  170. Howard says:

    The Cardinals should be pleased that the President did not bother to call them.
    They were not lied to, as most Americans are on a daily basis by the man.
    They had a terrific season. Why ruin it?

    1. tommie says:

      You do realize that he did call. Not the day of the game, but he did call. But the days to call or whether they call at all is not how I pick a president.

  171. Obesepum80 says:
