Mike Ditka does not like the way that President Barack Obama is handling the country right now. In fact, if he could go back in time and change one thing about his life, he says that he would go back to 2004 when he was thinking about running for a U.S. Senate seat in Illinois and challenge President Obama, who was eventually elected to be a senator for the state. He admitted it earlier this month during a speech that he gave at an oil facility in North Dakota.

"Biggest mistake I've ever made," he said. "Not that I would have won, but I probably would have and he wouldn't be in the White House."

Hmmm…So does that mean that we would be calling Ditka the president right now instead of President Obama? Yikes. That would be quite the sight.
