Why the Obama story failed to bring home the Olympics
Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 10/5/09 | Alaphiah

Posted on 10/05/2009 7:55:15 AM PDT by Alaphiah123

The International Olympic Committee has been listening to President Soetoro’s recent accounts of America and they agree with him America is not what it should be.

President Soetoro spent the first few months of his presidency reaffirming all of the world’s most negative feelings toward America and they heard him. (see previous post)(see 2:16min video)

For years Democrats and Liberals have been attempting to undermine America’s position as world leading super power. Former Democrat President Clinton even forecasted that this day would come, a day when America would not be the pre-eminent military, economic and political power. (see related story)

America is now an “also ran” among the world powers due to decades of outsourcing American jobs for low wages and outsourcing American technology to China or any other countries that had low wage labor and/or lots of capital.

Yeah, tearing something down to build it up doesn't work very well in sales Obama.

In one short sentence instead of an article -— Arrogance is the downfall of the arrogant.

maybe if Oprah wore one of those skimpy feather outfits we would have got it?

If this comes to be Clinton and his treacherous party will be the reason.

A bit too much corporation-bashing and protectionism and ignorant populism in this post.

Yes, Obama made an ass out of himself, and yes, Obama deserved this humiliation -— but, as conservatives, we do not have to join in with the commies, and bash corporations, do we?

I don’t think this was about America at all. It’s far more basic than that. The product and the salesman were both lousy. Chicago? Why on earth would anyone want to have the Olympics in a failed city known for slums, crime, and corruption. Of all the cities in the U.S. Chicago should have been one of the last chosen. Now given that Chicago was the product, did the salesman present a solid case as to why Chicago would be the best choice? Of course not. His pitch wasn’t even about Chicago. It was about himself and why he is so wonderful and should get his way. The outcome was preordained.

This moron spends eight months on his apology tours, and pointing out everything he see’s wrong with this country and then thinks they are going to award the Olympics on the strength of his personality. Talk about narcissism.

How do you get a 20,000 crowd on a workday in Chicago? Answer: city workers and goonions get a paid day. Wow - talk about astro-turf.

I recall shortly after Clinton left office, he was giving his first post-presidential speech (Georgetown U, IIRC).

Not long after, Albright was also giving a speech in Haiti or some Carribean country.

Both made remarks that were similar and, I thought, rather astounding.

Both indicated basically that we needed ‘to play nice’ with 3rd-world countries, because our supremacy would not last and we would one-day be one of those 3rd-world countries.

It seems that many recent administrations of both parties have that as a goal for this nation.

Sorry but I am a Conservative yet I realize that it is Corporations that have sold out America for usurious profits.

Whether you realize it or not everything wrong in America today can be traced directly back to what corporations have done.

Sorry those are just the facts. I pray for Corporations that are loyal to America by what I’ve seen are Corporation that are only loyal to the dollar no matter where they get it.

“they were begging for the Olympics to come and fix the economic ruin that Congress and International Corporations have wreaked on America.”

I’m not sure where this came from? There is no way that the Olympics would have done anything for the USA except for putting us deeper in debt.

Detroit and Cleveland are way more rotgut than Chicago---Rio has beaches and Chicago has the Lake Michigan shoreline-- Duh??? Glad Obama, Daley and Chi-town cronies got humbled--they needed it!

It came from Mayor Daley himself! I’m researching it now.

To Obama, procuring the Olympics was never about the United States, or even about Chicago. The IOC called him on it.

I'm sorry. Did you get lost on your way to the DailyKos? Your statements are ridiculous and infantile. Any business is created to make money and they make decisions based on that premise. I would be willing to bet that whatever a corporation does that you dislike is most likely the result of a U.S. Government policy change or regulation. Moving overseas is an easy decision when the labor is cheaper(caused by feds), taxes are cheaper(caused by feds), pollution standards aren't as strict(caused by feds), and regulations aren't as restrictive(you guessed it, caused by the feds). If you want to blame someone for the mess we are in then blame government in general and the liberal democrats in particular.

You're welcome. I have not seen another picture that so perfectly captures the essence of the man. This one comes close, though:

...in which our Dear Leader strikes a familiar pose, at least for those who recall Italy in the 1920s.

Why? Because he didn't understand the difference between a "vote for me" campaign speech and a real SALES CALL!

Boy you are a simplistic naïve soul aren’t you? You ever heard of Lobbyist? That’s Business bribing your government to get what they want.

I’m a patriotic Conservative; I’m not against Business or profit. I’m only against a Business that would put profit above their country. That is what these international corporations have done. The ones, of course, that have their origins in the USA.

Yes they blame it on government regulation but that’s just slight-of-hand to keep you and me looking at the wrong culprit.

But you are correct that our government has sold us out too. I’m only pointing out that they are not the only ones. And our government is not even smart enough to instigate this whole scenario. It is the Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and others who see vast opportunities overseas and they have left America economically weak as they transfer jobs out of this country like the White flight phenomenon which happens in US neighborhoods when minorities move it.

Do some research before you show your ignorance. It’s conservatives like you that give Conservatism a bad name! And that’s why we lost in 2006 and 2008. Get with it bub!
