    Porter asking for lead from Secret Service

    PORTER PLANNING TO GIVE THE PREZ A PIECE OF HIS MIND
    May 15, 2006
    Mike Florio

    Steelers linebacker Joey Porter is looking forward to the team's visit to the White House on June 2 in celebration of their Super Bowl victory.

    But not for the reasons that most folks anticipate a visit to the place when the President lives and works.

    "Yeah, I got something to say to [George] Bush, I'm going to have a swagger when I walk in there, too," Porter said. "I'm looking forward to it. I have something to tell him, too. I don't like the way things are running right now. I feel like he has to give me some of my money back, so I got something to tell Bush."

    Even if Porter is mildly exaggerating or completely kidding, it's not the kind of attempt humor that the men and women of the Secret Service ordinarily regard as funny. Our guess is that, at a minimum, Porter will get a stern talking to from someone in authority regarding his stated plans and, depending on what Porter says in response, he might not receive the requisite clearance to attend.

    Or maybe he'll say all the right things in advance and then try to make a scene when he gets there. But the thing that Porter, who already has been shot once in his life, needs to keep in mind is that the folks in the Secret Service will be aiming a little higher than his ass if he crosses the line in the presence of the President.

    Better still, perhaps Porter can display the area of his prior wound to Bush, a la Forrest Gump and LBJ.

    Sounds like the steelers need to start looking for another linebacker just in case.

    I would laugh my head off if Porter managed to take his criticisms of Bush Jr's Presidency and was able to put them across in an eloquent, articulate way.. Could you imagine how embarrassing it would be for Bush Jr to be outsmarted by a football player?

    Okay.. Maybe not as embarrassing as asking for a bathroom break during a United Nations meeting, or being outsmarted by a pretzel, but embarrassing nonetheless.

    Heh heh. I had the honor of working with some of the secret service when I was in the military. Needless to say, they take their jobs very seriously, and I would be willing to bet that Porter has already had a visit.

    Besides, what an arrogant asshole. Winning a super bowl does not make him an expert in running the country. If he wants to express his views about the way the presidency is being run, he is more than welcome. But don't abuse the privilege of a white house visit to do so.

    Porter is a F'N idiot.. He runs his mouth off constantly, and thinks he is king sh!t. I can't stand that moron.. My hope is that he doesn't even get the chance to attend the White House meeting, and his Unvite becomes public, that way everyone can laugh at the putz..

    He won't say anything to Bush. Just like the rest of the team they will shake hands and say all the right things.

    Speak your mind to the actually President is crazy sounding. People don't speak their minds to the President they listen nod and agree.

    This is just a sound bite and we bit!

    Steelers linebacker Joey Porter gets acquainted with the Secret Service: "Is there a problem officers?"

    PORTER BACKTRACKS ON BUSH COMMENTS
    Mike Florio

    Steelers linebacker Joey Porter has "clarified" his recent comments regarding his plans for the team's June 2 visit to the White House.

    On Sunday, Porter said, "Yeah, I got something to say to [George] Bush, I'm going to have a swagger when I walk in there, too. I'm looking forward to it. I have something to tell him, too. I don't like the way things are running right now. I feel like he has to give me some of my money back, so I got something to tell Bush."

    Not surprisingly, Porter is now singing a different tune.

    "I regret that my quotes about our team's upcoming visit to the White House were taken out of context," Porter said in a prepared statement. "I am very excited to have an opportunity to visit the White House and meet the president of the United States. During a lighthearted session with the media, I did joke with them about meeting Uncle Sam and FICA. I did not say that I disapproved of President Bush or the job he has done leading our country. We will be guests of the president and I would never do anything to disrespect him. I consider our upcoming trip an honor and a dream come true. Our entire team is looking forward to visiting the White House and enjoying what promises to be the opportunity of a lifetime."

    Said one league insider in response to the quotes attributed to Porter: "He couldn't even read this statement much less write it."

    Of course, it's easy for Porter to blame the media for (God forbid) repeating his words verbatim. Though some accounts made sure to mention that Porter was laughing loudly when he made the remarks, we explained on Monday that the folks hired to protect the President won't see the humor.

    Really, does it take a genius to figure that there are certain things that shouldn't be said, even in jest? We don't have the time to compile the full list, but we have a feeling that "I'm going to talk shit at the President when I go to his crib" falls somewhere between "Stewardess, can I have a pillow to set this bomb on?" and "Honey, I've got the herpes" on the official ranking of statements uttered in jest that won't draw much laughter.

    Then again, should we expect anything else from Porter? As one league source recently said: "He is so f--king dumb and to have him as a mouthpiece for the team is unbelievable."
