49ers’ Harbaugh glad Obama’s mythical son wouldn’t play; Libs attack

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh caused a stir today in reaction to President Obama’s declaration that he might not allow a son to play football. Clearly it was a joke, and it’s not like we should expect a professional football coach to agree that football is bad for kids. However, people on Twitter are often totally immune to logic and incapable of taking a joke, particularly when President Obama is involved, so naturally Harbaugh’s joke generated overwrought condemnation from the Left.

Of course, normal people thought it was funny. Heck, even the media thought it was funny.

“@espn_nfc Jim Harbaugh has media laughing by saying absence of an Obama son playing fb means less competition for his own son.” @mrs_megs

Oh this is classic! Asked about Obama’s comments football being unsafe, Jim Harbaugh says that’s less competition for his son Jack.

Line of day at #SB47: Jim Harbaugh says Obama stand on football gives his 4-month-old “one less kid to compete against.”

#harbaugh is basically saying that no one gives a damn what #obama thinks & his son is playing football. POTUS needs to stop hating. #49ers

The other coach in the Super Bowl, Harbaugh’s brother John, also disagreed with the president.

#Ravens coach John Harbaugh says he disagrees with Obama about football; calls it a “great game” that “will be around for a long time.”

John Harbaugh just shot down President Obama’s recent comments on Football at his Presser…Damn… #EnemiesList #tcot

John Harbaugh – 1Obama – 0

Nice work by the Harbaugh brothers reacting to a question that probably shouldn’t have been asked anyway — we’ve seen enough hand-wringing about Obama’s hypothetical son to last a lifetime. There’s plenty of room for debate about how to make the game safer — but can’t we just enjoy the Super Bowl for a week?
