SHARE Sweet: Obama blames Bears defense (not lobbyists) for team collapse.

CHICAGO–To be president–or to run for the White House, one needs to know everything, such as why da Bears blew the season. During an interview on MSNBC Friday morning, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough asked presidential contender Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “what the hell happened to the Bears this year.”

“You know, it starts with the defense. We had some injuries, and the D collapsed. And that’s how we won last year,” Obama said.

We still have quarterback problems. Joe, do you play quarterback?

SCARBOROUGH: Well, I did in high school. And I would say usually it’s a job that you leave for professionals, but if you’re going to let Rex Grossman play, I might as well move to Chicago.

OBAMA: Why not?

SCARBOROUGH: Why not?

All right. Hey, Senator, good luck out there. Greatly appreciate you being here.
