Obama Refuses To Pick Sides In Super Bowl [VIDEO]

President Barack Obama isn’t picking sides this Super Bowl Sunday.

In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer before the championship game, Obama would only say he expects a “great game.”

“You’re not to get me (to pick), I’m going to look for a great game,” Obama said with a coy smile.

In a pre-Super Bowl interview just a few days into his presidency in 2009, Obama correctly predicted a Pittsburgh Steelers win over the Arizona Cardinals. But, facing re-election, Obama said he wasn’t picking sides this time.

Earlier in the day, Obama said on Twitter that he was looking forward to game but wished his hometown team, the Chicago Bears, “weren’t watching it from home, too.”
