Calipari Addresses the Obama Jersey “Controversy”

This can be UK next time….

Via Calipari’s Facebook today….give em hell Cal!

As for the UK jersey I will be sending to the President, let me be clear so there is no confusion: The first thing you have to do is cool it! Stop, okay? You have 2 understand how I am and what I’m about. I don’t care about party affiliation or political leanings. I’ve always been that way – it’s how I was brought up. I see people 4 who they are, not who they vote for or what they look like. I’m not worried about Democrat, Republican or Independent – if a politician is going 2 move the city, the state or the country in the right direction, then I’m with them. Period.

The only way we improve is when we all work together – that’s in basketball and in life. I am NOT trying to move the electorate this way or that – far from it. I am not going to actively endorse or support anyone for governmental office BUT I will fully support anyone the Commonwealth or for that matter, the Nation elects to higher office. That’s how we get this thing moving in the right direction. You know what I believe in? I believe in America. I believe in the land that gave my grandparents an opportunity to better themselves and I believe in a land that let’s all of us bounce back from whatever it is that may knock us down. That’s what I believe in. I wanted you to hear this from me so there is no confusion Lastly, don’t you think it’s a good thing if we get some Kentucky blue in that White House? Okay. Enough said. I’m a basketball coach. I coach ball – and I can’t wait to coach your team to new heights.
