    I'm kind of confused here....

    So the President takes a photo with the Red Sox holding up a Sox shirt, the Red Sox used numerous photos during their trip to the Whitehouse that they tweeted and posted. Aren't they using a few of the pictures with Obama as advertising?  Does the Whitehouse object to the numerous photos used on @redsox ???

     Aren't the Red Sox making money off the various shots of the team at the Whitehouse? The Red Sox are a business after all.

     


    The real point is that Obama and his administraion are using the Red Sox likeness to gain political favor from Sports fans!  They should be paying Papi just for showing up to their litle garden party...After all there is a Red Sox Nation not an Obama-Nation!

     




    Were you just born?  This tradition has been going on for a long time with all sports.  The White House invites the championship team and could care less who from that team shows up.  Bush 43 had  fun with Manny not showing.  It is an annual thing and soon forgotten the next day.

    But you have a point, Obama will most likely use his picture with Ortiz on his next Presidential run. 



    Wow, is this the first time you've heard sarcasm?

    FYI, this is Obama's second term in this country you can only sit in that office twice.

    Yes, that was sarcasm as well.  Meaning Obama is not interested in photo shots with anyone.

    Hey genius, you're response to the other genius was incorrect. Obama can only serve two terms as president, so he can't run again. I'm guessing because of both your statements, that you're both members of the highly intellectual Tea Party.

    Yea, I am a card holding member of the tea party and I adore Palin.  Of course I know he is done serving as President.  I know the law very well.  It was a joke to say that Obama is done being politically correct just as most second term presidents are.

    I make this joke over on the political forum all the time and everyone gets it.

There's few here that will take any opportunity to jump all over Ortiz...steven11 has been swewing the hate for YEARS! I'm a little worried what will happen to him once Ortiz retires...he may have an excitement overload of some sort.

 

 



He's probaby the same guy on the Pats board that Hates Tom Brady, biggest loser ever and I don't mean weight loss.  I'm sure he's a fat slob that never leaves his keyboard other than to get a light beer and a slice of pizza.  If TB and Big Papi retire in the same year his little heart with shrink even smaller!

    Anyway:  Ortiz is 3 for 3 and on his way to another great season.  I like the mix of veterans and rookies.  The best part of the white house visit was when Napoli said the President will know his name next year.

    I think your reading comprehension skills are as lacking as your spelling. I like Obama, I like him more everyday. I like Bill Maher, he's my favorite athiest. I despise the Tea Party; they make ignorance and bigotry seem like something to be proud of. Similar to their hero, george w.



    Bill F'n Maher really the idiot that said "What's the big deal about the Boston Marathon Bombings, only a few people Died and i guess a lot got hurt but so what"  that Bill Maher?  Not Cool at all, I could careless about you political beliefs but I hate Bill Maher you can have him!

    Re: Big Papi' $AM$UNG

    Samsung admitted they planned, and helped Ortiz do this. Ortiz said, before the trip, he was going to take one. It was a total set-up.

    To me, that makes the whole thing meaningless. It wasn't organic. It wasn't genuine.

    I'm disappointed Ortiz took a TEAM moment to make some extra money, but not surprised.

    I'm MORE disappointed that Samsung stooped to SUCH a low level to get some photo to t w a t out to the masses of illiteracy.

    Yes, I have a problem that a corporation used an athlete to wrangle the PRESIDENT OF THE FKING COUNTRY into what amounts to a promotional photo.

    At times like this, I like to imagine old-fashined KGB-types entering a glass and chrome highrise somewhere looking to speak to some pencil necked d o u c h e about a photo that shouldn't have been taken.

    This country has turned into a joke. People defending this at all just falls in line with the society of idiocy it is turning in to.

    Ortiz made a mistake. Was it egregious? No, it was just stupid. It's ok to say Ortiz did something dumb. Samsung, on the other hand...dd what businesses do, and why I will never support big business...they lie, cheat, steal, backstab and do WHATEVER NECCESSARY to make another buck. Fk them.

    “I also saw, so the Red Sox won the World Series, congratulations Red Sox,” Maher said to Weiner. “So the parade, they go to the place where the marathon bombing took place, they put the World Series statue there and they sing God Bless America and they say ‘Boston strong’ and they chant ‘USA,’ you know. It was again, a bad day, three people died, that’s terrible. More were maimed, that’s horrible, but unfortunately that happens every day, in car accidents and everything else. I mean, you city was not leveled by Godzilla.”  Bill Maher

     

     

    Bill Maher's got a screw loose.  An accident, is just that. This, was no accident.

    In response to steven11's comment:

    A picture with a veteran from Walter Reed would have been more impressive.  Are there any out there with David and a vet taken with his new samsung?




    Ortiz himself put this story in the proper context when he spoke about meeting with a soldier at Walter Reed Medical Center after the White House visit.

    “One thing that happened to me is one young man, 26 right now,” he said. “He got both of his legs blown up with a bomb. His spirit was so good. Me and [Dustin] Pedroia were looking at each other like, ‘Seriously?’ There are so many people complaining about stupid things in life.

    “The best thing that happened to me is going to look at this guy because it made me a better human being. I had a really good time there yesterday and getting to hang out with him and people doing their thing for all of us.

    “Everybody should go hang out with these people. This guy is sitting on the bed with no legs and he was acting like he was the happiest man on planet Earth just because we went out and saw him and talked to him.”

     



    Like the OP of this thread and many other posts on it.

    well Im glad that the actual selfie was eventually discussed instead of personal attacks...

    now full disclosure...

    I actually have no problem with Papi signing a deal with anyone that wants to pay for his services....now using the prez as a prop is a bit skeezy but as we all know, Im pretty sure the pres is using this visit and all sports teams visits to gain political favor soim calling a draw there...not showing up like Red State Tim Thomas or manny my grandma is dead is disrespectful...this? not really 

    so in honor of my timely posts about Papi being old, fat, unmotivated and $elfish....i now change my avatar

    That's all well and good....if you were impartial. You've already made your dislike for Ortiz well known, so it doesn't matter what he does.....you'll find a way to rip him...just like his other haters.

    If you...and the other haters, take the time to read the story correctly....Ortiz and Samsung had a deal and ideas Samsung encouraged Ortiz to take pictures. The selfie itself was not a set up, it was spur of the moment.

     



    Paint me in whatever false colors you like.

    You know, every time an anti-Ortiz thread start, it runs for 3+ pages every time. When Ortiz got his extension...less than 2 pages of congratulations, one of which was ME. So take your holier-than-tou nonsense and shove it DIRECTLY up you a s s.

    Take your own advice...take the time to READ once in a while.

    It was NOT spur of the moment you wool growning, grass chomping sheep.

    Here's the PROOF:

    http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-04-02/how-samsung-tricked-obama-into-shooting-that-selfie-with-david-ortiz

    Do you EVER fact check, or in your rush to powerwash Ortiz' ba ll s, do you miss all these INDISPUTABLE POINTS?

    Through ALL of my negative comments about Ortiz, I've maintained I HATE his mouth, LOVE his play. My ONLY issues come from the selfish things he's said over the past 5+ years multiple times. I have PRAISED his ON THE FIELD PLAY almost as much, though admittedly less. Show me ONE TIME where I ripped him and didn't back it with facts and quotes FROM ORTIZ. I took you MOST RECENT POST to show how you just mindlessly defend him.

    SO I suggest you read a little outside of what YOU write. Then, go find a mirror and reconsider this line: "That's all well and good....if you were impartial.", because one of us has shown a total ignorance of the facts available.

    Yes, I have seen you send compliments in the direction of some.  Because of your comments to david, your crticism of him getting paid by samsung, holds water.  Some people are going to defend their favorite athletes no matter what they do. 

    But Ortiz was going to take the picture with or without the money, the money just made it easier to do.  Ortiz has been a supporter of Obama, sending out a tweet endorsing Obamacare.

    Most likely what will happen in the future will be that no athletes will be allowed cell phones when near the President.
