President Barack Obama has made no secret of the fact that he's a Bears fan, and the team's head coach, Lovie Smith, made his feelings about the president known in a new campaign ad supporting Obama's re-election.
Smith encourages African Americans to support Obama in his re-election bid this year in the 37-second video.
"I'm pleased with where we are now," Smith says in the ad. "The president has done so much — healthcare, ending the Iraq war, new jobs. But it's not about where we are now. It's about our future, and that's what I'm excited about. You have to be patient and kind of look into the future, and our future is looking bright because I trust the man that will be leading us in the future. And that man is Barack Obama.
"I have the president's back, and it's left up to us as African Americans to show that we have his back also."
Smith encourages viewers to join African Americans for President Obama at the end of the video.
