BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) — President Obama is making a speech Thursday evening about the economy and Saints fans are worried, but not about getting people back to work. "Obama. I love him as President, but the Saints ya heard me. I'm trying to watch the game," says Tierra Young.
If Obama's speech goes a little too long, it might interfere with Saints' fans chances of watching Brees and the boys take on the Packers. "I'm not really happy about that. I really want to see the Saints," says Sam Brooks.
But some Saints fans say that with the economy the way it is, people need to be patient and listen to the President, "It's something of great importance, so if he's gonna interrupt the Saints game in order to put out a message. I really don't mind." John Parker agrees, "It's a message that the world needs to hear, the nation needs to hear."
But that's not the message others in the Who Dat nation want to hear, "To be honest with you, I don't plan on watching it. I plan on looking it up on the Internet. I'm not really interested in what Obama has to say right now," says Joshua Ambrose.
But there's one thing that all Saints fans can definitely agree on, "What? Who dat nation number one. What? I bleed black and gold," says Tierra Young.
