Vick and the U.S. President

Seriously?

How is this worthy of presidential comment? Fix the economy. Get Dolfin and the rest of our military out of Afghanistan and Iraq. You've got better things to do and politicking to NFL and Philly fans in preparation for the next election should not be your focus right now.

HONOLULU -- The White House says President Barack Obama has commended the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles for giving quarterback Michael Vick a second chance after his release from prison.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton says the president told owner Jeffrey Lurie that while he condemns the crimes Vick was convicted of, he believes people who have paid for their crimes should have the opportunity to contribute to society again.

The Eagles signed Vick last year after he served an 18-month prison sentence on charges related to a dogfighting ring. Vick has led the Eagles to the playoffs this year after assuming the starting job.

The White House says Obama also applauded the Eagles' plan to install wind turbines and solar panels at their stadium to reduce energy consumption.
