The Eagle has Floundered!!
The President jetted off to Copenhagen to make his case for Chicago hosting the 2016 Olympics. A move that the President shouldn't have been dumb enough to make if he wasn't fairly sure of the outcome. Chicago was the first city to be eliminated from contention for the 2016 games.(17 votes out of 97)
A total embarrassment to the President--who is likely reaming out whoever it was that made the call to go to Copenhagen.
(or maybe it was the icky speech that no one is showing us about how he, the wifey and kids could step out of their true Chicago home and welcome the World...gag me, tuff sell I'd say...just what the world wants to do, couldn't be for Gold Medals or anything...ego)
This from the Huffington Post...can't believe I read this....
Dave Zirin: Barack Obama may not be feeling it, but he is the luckiest man alive right now. Yes, President Obama traveled all the way to Copenhagen and didn't even get a lousy t-shirt, but he is damn fortunate it went down like it did. Obama is the first U.S. President to ever appear before the International Olympic Committee and plea for the games. If they had come to the Windy City, it would have been an eight-year distraction and political gold for his opponents. Every time an Olympic project came in late and over budget, every time a scandal hit the tabloids, every time a crime was captured on a cell phone camera it would have been "Obama's Olympic Folly.
All I can say is REALLY?? Guess he was the only one totally clueless about this
'can of corruption' he was about to open on us Americans.
Besides all that...the Mojave would be a better destination for tourism than the ghetto's of Chicago...pleze!
