Olympics 2016

It's not Chicago. (Let the Obama haters jump on this.) It's not Tokyo. Madrid and Rio are left. I'm guessing Rio. Edit @ 11:51: Once again, I am all knowing. It is Rio De Janeiro. (Did you just think it was a coincidence that just two weeks ago I posted this beach pic from Rio?) Edit: Girls celebrate Rio's big win.

So how much did it cost US for Obama, his wife and Oprah to fly over there in seperate jets, and how much fuel did they waste? Guess they never heard of jetpooling! And, it did how much good? Out in the first round, I think. Imagine if the Bush's and Rush had done that. We'd never hear the end of it.

Why anyone would think it would ever be in Chicago is beyond me.

Wow! Looks like the IOC did'nt buy into Obamanomics either? What a waste of time and taxpayer money!

Danny Boy said...

So wait, is the IOC now un-American? I mean, they didn't go along with Obama and we know how he feels about that. If I saw the news on any of these cities I would tell them the olympics are off. Rio and Chicago have horrible crime, Madrid has radical terrorists, and Tokyo wouldn't be able to keep athletes away from "massage parlors". I know it 7 years away, but it won't change much. Plus are the cities not left with unused structures after? And WHO is paying for all this in Chicago?

How could Obama let us down like this.

Obama wields the same negotiating power everywhere he travels at our expense.

Obama will force PAN AM out of bankruptcy to capitalize on the DFW to RIO route.

Oh my! Obama not infallible?

This could cause major instability in several U.S. urban centers.

He's TOO BIG TO FAIL!!!

Well I did just read that some of the IOC folks were offended by his quick trip. I think they expected a little more kissing up...

They picked Rio because it has that huge statue of Obammy.

Actually.....Obama is a great PR guy, he just has bad policies.

You will all soon fall under the power of Obama. Just take the "swine flu" shot and you will be in a better place.

I guess Obama is not held in nearly as high esteem as some thought. Hmmm..

Why is the world does anyone think we should have had the Olympics in Chicago because our President is from Chicago - I don't remember any Olympics being held in Crawford, Tx.

M-M said...

Did Obama have his teleprompter? If he didn't, the stuttering and stammering might have ruined it for the IOC.

SHUT UP!!!!!!

Is that Obama with his back to the camera, standing on top of the hill with his arms spread? I've heard a lot of people saying he was the second coming of me, but I hate to disappoint you folks, he puts his pants on one leg at a time, just like any other mortal man.

Keep praying my children.

Does anyone believe Mitchell Obammy when she said that she was sitting on her daddy's lap watching Carl Lewis win the gold medal when she was in her twenties? Someone needs to investigate the incestiousness in that family.

No wonder everybody is leaving the Republican party...because of asses like all of you haters. This is America, he is your president, and you should be ashamed that you can't support the Olympics coming to Chicago just because Obama put himself out there to try to get the bid. Ridiculous! Do you now not support the USA?

Why are you numbnuts still not yakking it up about the hideous governor of this state? Barry, why haven't you brought this up on the blog yet? My, my aren't we blinded when it comes to this issue? He is so busted on the cover up of investigation of the execution of the man who was allegedly at fault for starting a fire and killing his three kids. Has Faux News not broken this story yet? That I guess is why none of you morons aren't talking about it...not, yall are just a bitter bunch of biased morons!

Tsk, Tsk such a shame...You should be ashamed of Dick Perry! Dirty Politics at work!

I don't care if Republicans want to rip President Obama over going to Copenhagen, Denmark, to pitch for the games. This isn't about politics. It's not about ideology. This is about America. OUR pride. Our chance to shine. Our loss of the games.

So, to all the critics happy about us losing the 2016 games, turn in your flag lapel pins and stop boasting of being so patriotic. When an American city loses, like New York did in the the last go-round, we all lose. And all you critics are on the same level as the America haters all across the world.

You should be shouted down for not backing your own country. The next time any of you say "Buy American" or "Support our troops," remember this moment when your cynical, callous and small-minded brains happily rejoiced when America lost the 2016 Olympic Games

UNBELIEVABLE!

I must say I'm SHOCKED absolutely shocked to hear that Rio was chosen over Chicago.

What kind of a world are we living in?

Who could have seen that one coming?

I will now sit here and alternate, shaking my head in disgust, making tssk-tssk sounds and face palming.

All 4 finalist for the game to be held in their city had their head of states for support. This is common practice.

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing obama will make us boycott the games since he didnt get his way. he couldn't bribe anyone to go along with him. i laughed and laughed!

Wow. Reading some of the comments are here kinda puts to rest the protestations of those who say race has nothing to do with their opposition to Obama.

Apparently, any failure of Obama is cause for celebration, regardless of the cost to our own self-interests. I, for one, still think that having the Olympics in the U.S. would have been a GOOD thing. Something that, by the way, was proposed years before Obama became president. The greater failure would have been if he had not campaigned for it to happen.

As I said before ALL Heads of States push and support for their city to be chosen...........but some people will complain in ignorance no matter what!

Only Americans that hate America would be gleeful that the United States lost. Regardless of who is President, or where in America the city that might have been chosen. Rush and all winger-wanker-wringer talk show hotairs are quite joyous. Along with their hate filled monger followers. A loss for the United States, a win for Right-Wing nuts. Go America!
