Obama still believes in Bears after loss
The Chicago Bears have dropped three of their last four games to fall into second place in the NFC North after a 23-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but the First Fan isn't giving up hope.
During a Q&A on middle class tax cuts on Twitter, President Barack Obama was asked which Chicago team, the White Sox, Bulls or Bears would win a title first.
"da bears still gotta shot, despite sad loss this weekend! plus rose will return for playoffs!!! -bo," Obama tweeted.
Bulls star Derrick Rose is working his way back from May knee surgery and his return date is uncertain.
Back when the Bears were flying high at 7-1 following a 51-20 victory over the Tennessee Titans, Obama expressed his support for the Bears the night before the Nov. 6 election, telling "Monday Night Football" that the Bears have the "best defense in the league right now. You saw (Sunday's) game. (Charles) Tillman may be defensive player of the year the way he's playing."
