Already a Classier Form of Congressman

Amazing, a White House Visit story from the 8th Congressional District that doesn’t involve bathrooms, wife’s being misnamed, and other aspects of tales told long, long ago.

Even before he arrived in Wisconsin Wednesday, President Obama was fielding personal reminders of the Chicago Bears’ loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday.

The President hosted a White House reception Monday night for new members of Congress, and when Reid Ribble was introduced as the congressman from Green Bay, he let out a soft groan.

“He said ‘Oh, no,’” said Ribble, who brought a present for Obama, a Packers tie. The President good-naturedly held it up over his own tie and posed for pictures, Ribble said.

‘He was a good sport,” said Ribble, a Republican.

Ribble actually brought two Packers ties. He left one with the President. The second one was signed by Obama and Vice President Biden. Ribble also signed it, and said he plans to have the state’s two US Senators sign it, then present it as a memento to a soldier recuperating  at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in D.C.

A slightly better idea would be to auction the tie off and use the money to buy gifts and other things for recovering soldiers from Wisconsin who are recuperating at Walter Reed.  A tie is nice, but the other idea puts a smile on more than one individuals face.
