"President Barack Obama will honor NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and the 11 other Chase drivers from last year in a White House ceremony on Wednesday – but nearly half of the 2010 playoff contenders won't be there.

NASCAR said Thursday that five drivers – Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart – will not be attending the White House visit due to "schedule conflicts."

This is how bad it is. 50% of the top 10 NASCAR drivers blow the President off on an invite to the White House. The entire business of our politics has become so base and our political offices (the offices themselves) have lost such status that these fools would even consider not attending an invitation to the White House. For what purpose? To make a political statement? Under what guise do these gents think that their "political" statement has any merit what so ever.

Bad form on the part of the drivers. Poor taste and bad form. Also bad for the sport.

I believe this is a result of the over coverage by the media of the President's private life and President's being too familiar with the press. The public wants and needs to know things about their leaders to humanize them, but the media has eroded the office of the President by treating them like celebrities. Certainly the men who have held the office recently have loved that treatment and facilitated it, but it has eroded the respect of the office.

One thing its not however is racist.

Exactly! Star 4 U!
I can see Mr Obama sitting them down with the likes of Big Sis, or Louis Farakhan, and having them drink a few beers (or what ever Louis drinks.).
My hats off to them for respectfully declining.
Their actions should send a message to Mr Obama ( who is a one term POTUS).

Maybe they just don't want to used by obama for campaign votes? Why else would obama even invite anybody from NASCAR to the White House except for votes. I say
to the drivers that see what this invite really is.
