Green Room

The coveted Cutler endorsement comes through for Romney

posted at 4:41 pm on November 5, 2012 by

From morning radio in Chicago today, it came late, but here it is!

Appearing on his weekly segment of the “Jay Cutler Show” on WMVP-AM 1000 on Monday, the Bears quarterback was asked by co-host Tom Waddle about his voting preference: Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.

“That’s a touchy subject,” Cutler said initially. “Yeah, I have been following the debates and everything. I do live in Tennessee. I’m voting for Mitt (Romney) this election season.”

Cool of him to be honest about it on the air, but I hope he doesn’t get too much blowback from it. Probably too much to hope for in Chicago. His co-hosts were split between Romney and Obama, so he had at least had some back-up on the air.

Yeah, there are other QBs I would have preferred— Rodgers, Peyton, Stafford?— but we’ll take it!

Pretty sure Peyton Manning is Republican…he donated to McCain I think. We do have John Elway…don’t forget him!

The Bears are winning, he’s going to be okay. Now if the Bears were losing right now, that would be a big deal.

Obligatory:

They hate Cutler in Chicago (from what I hear). So there’s no real difference who Cutler backs.

Jay Cutler > Stephanie Cutter!

Tom Brady was asked the same question on the Dennis & Callahan show this morning and he didn’t give an answer. He might be voting for Romney because in Mass you won’t take any heat for backing a Democrat.

Wigglesworth on November 5, 2012 at 4:51 PM

Eli Manning needs to be with Romney, then the circle is complete. Obama=Tom Brady, Romney=Eli Manning.

Wrong….Cutler is beloved in Chicago.

Stephanie Cutter would probably make a helluva linebacker.

Red Cloud on November 5, 2012 at 5:09 PM

Bart Starr endorsed Romney.

Sugar Land on November 5, 2012 at 5:15 PM

Awesome, Jay. Here in the mob-controlled city of Chicago, where stupidity and corruption are both badges of honor among the Democrats, this takes a lot of guts.

Jaibones on November 5, 2012 at 5:20 PM

Stephanie Cutter would probably make a helluva linebacker.

After working previously for Teddy K and Bubba, she’s unlikely to be a tight end anymore.

Yeah, right. Brady is married to Gisele who I imagine is a big lib. He’s probably being smart and not discussing politics in the same manner Jordan never did, until recent yrs.

conservative pilgrim on November 5, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Oh great. The most hated player in the NFL. Awesome.

What about Matt Schaub, from the 7-1 Houston Texans?

jl on November 5, 2012 at 5:46 PM

Rodgers has a radio show that airs on Tuesdays, I’m sure they’ll ask him but doubt he’d answer. Why piss off half his team?

kit9 on November 5, 2012 at 5:50 PM

WOW SHE FINALLY SAID SOMETHING INTELLGENT????

Oh… the headline says Cutler, not Cutter… never mind…

Marcola on November 5, 2012 at 5:50 PM

Hope no one on his offensive line takes offense. He already has a major pass protection problem.

He said he wants to beat Cutler’s azz next Sunday night.

22044 on November 5, 2012 at 4:51 PM

When I first saw the headline, I thought hmmm… that in-fighting between her and Axelrod (or was it Messina?) must’ve been getting intense.

Wrong….Cutler is beloved in Chicago.

Ditkaca on November 5, 2012 at 4:57 PM

Yeah. They treated him so well when he didn’t play the rest of that playoff game.

Mitoch55 on November 5, 2012 at 6:14 PM

Since I don’t follow football I had no idea who Cutler was. So I figured that R got the 11th-hour Stephanie Cutter endorsement :)

(Hey, you could say she’s helped his campaign more than hurt it.)

Mitoch55 on November 5, 2012 at 4:51 PM

You hear wrong. General consensus around here (I live in the Chicago area) is that while Jay can be a bit of a jerk at times, for the most part is an okay guy. As long as he’s doing well and the team’s doing well, everything’s fine.

Yeah. They treated him so well when he didn’t play the rest of that playoff game.

Mitoch55 on November 5, 2012 at 6:14 PM

He’s redeemed himself nicely since then. The Bears are 14-4 in the past two seasons with him starting. No one questions Jay’s toughness anymore. It’s on obvious display every week what with how bad the Bears’ O-line is.

Cade McNown Jay ain’t.

Still got the whiniest little pout face in the NFL though. Nothing is ever that guy’s fault, ever.

But yea, he’s a good QB, which is a hell of a lot more than anybody can say for any of the other Chicago QBs in recent memory.

Jay Cutler only has 1,234 followers on Twitter. Go to @JayCutler6 and follow him!

Wha? Better than Rex Grossman? Chad Hutchinson? Johnathan Quinn? Craig Krenzel? Kordell Stewart? Steve Stenstrom? Moses Moreno? Henry Burris? Shane Matthews? Todd Collins? Caleb Hanie? Rick Mirer?

Are you kidding??

changer1701 on November 5, 2012 at 4:44 PM

I’m still sore at Elway for what happened back on January 1987 at Cleveland Municipal Stadium. But unlike most Browns fans, I consider him to be a very smart man (and a patriot).
