Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will watch Super Bowl at the White House, says the star

The White House seems to be planning a pretty fun Super Bowl party: Among the guests will be celebrity couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

So says J-Lo herself. Her publicist put out the word Wednesday via the Web site; later the actress-singer (and now "American Idol" judge) told the world herself, via the celeb-news TV show "Extra."

"I can't believe it!" she said. "I don't know, maybe that's why I don't want to talk about it. I don't even feel like its real!" And: "No, we're not crashing."

The executive mansion typically invites a few dozen friends for Super Bowl viewing parties. This year, Lopez and Anthony (who own a minority share of the Miami Dolphins) will mingle with a typical assortment of Cabinet members (Eric Holder, Ron Kirk, Janet Napolitano, Ray LaHood) and lawmakers with a home-team interest in the game, including Pennsylvania Senators Pat Toomey and Bob Casey, and new Wisconsin congressman Reid Ribble (R), as well as the mayors of Milwaukee and Madison, Wisc.

Cool. It's been about 4 weeks since Obama's last vacation. He's got to be burned out by now.

I understand that this is political with the President looking for the Latino votes. I voted for Mr.Obama in 2008 and my Republican husband voted for him (1st time he ever voted for a Democrat) and I would love to visit the White House one day. I really don't have any idea how to go about it. It just seems that certain things are out of reach for ordinary Americans. By the way, my son is also a Harvard grad and a successful physician. I just feel left out.

Um, he's watching the Super Bowl. I believe Dubya did the same thing - in fact, wasn't he watching the game during the famous pretzel choking incident? Is the man supposed to be chained to his desk 24 hours a day? Sheesh.

What a smack in the face to every accomplished REAL musician with actual talent, and not just a big butt.

A real football fan wouldn't have invited J Lo. Obama is the laughing stock of football fans everywhere.

Understand Valerie Jarrett has invited Army Vice Chief of Staff GEN Peter Chiarelli to attend in formal uniform to serve drinks at this affair.

Suspect everyone has heard about the black tie event last weekend where White House senior adviser Jarrett mistook the Army 4-Star General for a waiter and asked him to get her a drink.

Does it surprise anyone that a Senior White House official can’t pick out the senior military officer in a line up of hotel doormen? It shouldn't; with the departure of National Security Advisor General James Jones several months ago, NO ONE in the West Wing has ever donned a uniform in defense of this nation which makes Obama's truly a "Vet-less Administra­tion."

I suspect for survival as reelection nears, President Obama will hire a few Vets to help prevent repeating those early Administra­tion boneheaded blunders like trying to bill veterans’ private insurance for combat disabiliti­es or allowing his DHS Secretary to accuse Vets of being potential Terrorists -- Ray Charles could have seen the public reaction to those prepostero­us utterances but Obama's “Vet-less” Admin couldn't. Including a Vet in his decision circle might avoid future embarrassm­ent.

All Americans should encourage Obama to add “diversity­” to his administra­¬tion and set an example for the rest of the country by hiring a few Vets. It might even have the serendipit­ous effect of lowering Veteran unemployme­¬nt.
