Pics, video below.
Last night, the Mitt Romney campaign got a lot of bounce from announcing the endorsement of John Elway -- and having Elway introduce Romney at a Wings Over the Rockies rally. In truth, though, Elway's declaration of support is about as surprising as Tim Tebow taking a knee after scoring a touchdown. Look below to track fourteen years of Elway's Republican presidential campaign love, as well as video from 2008 and last night.

1998: I'd like to go to the White House, but I've got a tee time....

As noted in an Associated Press article linked here, Elway declined to mark the Broncos' 1998 Super Bowl victory by visiting the White House for a grip-and-grin photo opportunity with Bill Clinton, the man then occupying the presidency. However, Elway denied that the turn-down had anything to do with politics.

So...what did Elway do while his teammates were rubbing elbows with Bubba? As the AP noted, Number 7 "had his knee checked by doctors that day and then played a round of golf."

I'm not a fan of someone just because they happen to share my birthplace or have played for a team of men that aren't even from my birthplace. Not even the greatest athlete or actor can influence my vote and especially, can't erase the embarassment of a campaign.

I just lost more respect for both of these men. Romney for soaking up someone doesn't popularity and rep instead of being a good candidate

These comments are hilarious. Denver continually surprises me with its ineptness to analyze even the most non-relevant quasi-political situations. So what if Elway backs Romney? Are we really surprised? Will that actually push people to vote for him? I really hope not. Analyze the politics for yourself and make your choice, but don't let a simpleton like Elway influence your decision. The man can barely manage a football franchise and has zero business influencing anything outside of who will be the Broncos' next QB.

it is indeed sad that any celebrity endorsement should matter to an individual. Do your own research. Back the best candidate.

Proof of what you always hear. From servers to sales people, John Elway is a non tipping, elitist dingle berry, hanging off the ass of the 1%. He is a rude. Thoughtless wretch that would just as soon spit in your mouth, rather than give you a tip. Dick!

you all are hypocritical fools. you bitch when elway backs romney based on the fact that he's rich but disregard the fact of the more-than-a-handful of celebrities who endorse that fucking moron in the white house. including jessica alba who is worth 40 milion more or less, but writes the term "equal pay" on the back of her hand and puts it to her chest and salutes that socialist imbecile taking seat in the oval office. you all sound like the same uneducated OBAMA freaks who struggle with the same herd mentality as the rest. hate on mitt because he's rich, and totally lleave out the question as to "why?" because he's a fuckin BOSS at what he does. Continue to play the saint in the stands and act like you would give all your money awat if you were worth what he is worth. fuckin jokeeeessssssss
