NASCAR 5 Kevin Harvick, Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards Too Busy to Visit White House

Five of the NASCAR Chase drivers to be honored at the White House have scheduling conflicts and have declined Obama’s invitation: Harvick, Stewart, Busch, Biffle and Edwards have something else to do. See a Tony Stewart video below. See an important update below.

Kevin Harvick

This article reminds us that this isn’t a good thing, because “the president is still the president.” Well, thanks for that. Yes, we awaken each morning to that terrible reality. This president undermines the powers of Congress and has stolen the Nation’s liberty. If some high-profile Americans choose to make that point, however subtly or loudly, they do the nation a favor.

The article intimates that not attending is unpatriotic. Once again, I don’t know the reasons why (and don’t need to know) Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart will not stand with Obama to celebrate NASCAR, but I am grateful for it. I hope they are offended by Barack Obama, are outraged at Barack Obama, but if they simply have a photo shoot, that’s fine with me.

I don’t know who any of these men are. I don’t know a single thing about them, but I did find a video of driver Tony Stewart talking to the media. Loved it. Enjoy.

UPDATE 10:10 pm 9-2-11: A commenter left a message saying Kurt Busch has accepted the White House invitation. I have no way to verify either way.

  • As they are in the spotlight constantly and have a wide range of fans, we may never know exactly what they think personally of Obama. But, my gut feeling is that these guys would rather drive cars then meet up with Obama!

  • Maggie … you are at your finest with this remark. I’m so proud of your answer to … “the president is still the president.” Well, thanks for that. Yes, we awaken each morning to that terrible reality. This president undermines the powers of Congress and has stolen the Nation’s liberty.

    These NASCAR drivers take off their hats and place their hands over their hearts before every race. You don’t have to wonder if they are Americans like you do with the phony in the White House.

    NASCAR forever … Obama’s done in 2012.

    • Thank you Carl. I really appreciate that.

  • Maggie, you are incorrect!! KURT BUSCH IS attending….. he just had to clear things from his schedule!!

  • Cinde, I’ll add this information to the article. Thank you.
