(CNN) - Taking a break from his briefings on the Boston terror attack, President Barack Obama honored last year's NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Brad Keselowski during a ceremony at the White House Tuesday.
"Obviously we've had this event scheduled for some time and events have a way of intervening," Obama said during the event on the South Lawn.
"One of the things I firmly believe in is that America is strong and resilient and we don't let such cowardly acts get in the way of our lives," he added later.
Watch Brad Keselowski's fanbase disappear.....
Obama and NASCAR. Fox's ratings are about to drop. lol
I think the timing on this is kinda bad. Thinking this should have been postponed.
Babyboomer, yea, but when you have such a crowded schedule like the President's, where literally every second is used up, I can see how much mayhem postponing it would've caused his staff. Yes, the timing isn't perfect, but I think the staff are happy to get it over with...
it is an electric car right ?
The timing might be bad...some people will be mad/offended they had it...some people would've been mad/offended if they cancelled it (Obama giving into to terror and/or Obama dissing NASCAR)...
get a life people
Obama and NASCAR go together like oil and water.
if there is one thing obama will not do is to cancel or rescedule a celebrity photo op. if our ambassador being killed in a terrorist attack in benghazi couldn't get him to cancel his campaign fund raiser, you can be sure the boston attack wouldn't affect this event.
Haters just keep hating, don't they? Geeezzz - like Kayla says – GET A LIFE.
one day after the boston bombing the disgrace obama is back to doing NOTHING
