Olympic Hopes End for Chicago

With a very important war in Afghanistan, troops still on the ground in Iraq, unemployment at 9.8%, the stimulus not working, Social Security and Medicare bleeding money faster than expected, health care on the verge of apocalypse (if you listen to our Dear Leader), I’m just soooooooo glad that President Obama, his wife Michelle Obamasaurus, and “The Oprah” gave a personal pitch to the IOC in Copenhagen, Denmark, for the 2016 Olympic Games to be hosted by Chicago.

Too bad it didn’t work out. 

And boy is Chicago’s Mayor Daley gonna be mad!  I’d hate to be Obama when he gets that phone call!  Anyway, Rio won and probably should have:  South America’s never held the Olympic games, Rio’s a fun town for tourists, and the alternatives were pretty weak:  Spain’s on my sh*t list since they capitulated to the terrorists after the March 11, 2004 train attacks;  the IOC doesn’t respect or like America no matter how much Obama conveyed his personal story, which I’m sure made rejecting Chicago first all the more sweet in their eyes; and all the while there’s everybody’s #2, Tokyo.

Since Obama made his push for Chicago such a personal thing, knelt down to the IOC like no President would ever have even thought of doing in the past without an absolute guarantee of success, shilled for a notoriously corrupt mayor in a notoriously corrupt and violent city on a trip costing millions, all while he continues to vote “present” on the real issues of the day, I have to agree with these sentiments from our favorite bully, Nelson:

Wonderful Copenhagen and the IOC gave Obama something he needed today—the cold shoulder. Great day for American, bad day for Obama and the corrupt politicians in the windy city–they will all cry tonight, but tomorrow morning they will be looking for other ways to line their pockets. The tax-payers won this time for they would have had to pay while the fat-cats raked in the profits of the many corrupt deals that would have been made.
