SHAME: New York Jets owner Woody Johnson said a Mitt Romney win is more important than a Jets win. Um, so Jets fans are being played for fools by Johnson, a heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune. He appeared on Bloomberg TV’s Market Makers, when co-host Stephanie Ruhle asked him which was more important – a winning season for the Jets, or an election victory for Mitt Romney?

Woody Johnson is dissing Jets fans, many of whom are in the 47 percent of Americans his homebody called deadbeats.
