It is Bushs Fault Chicago Did Not Get the 2016 Olympics ^ | 10/07/2009 | jim byrd

“Nothing is easier than blaming others for our troubles and absolving ourselves of responsibility for our choices and our actions. Anyone can do that. Responsibility and leadership in the 21st century demands more.” — Barack Obama

Very poignant statement by Barack Obama, but as witnessed by his leadership style and penchant for blaming Bush on a weekly basis for something he can’t control, he left it incomplete.

Blame it on the culture and violence of Chicago, and the people who went to Copenhagen to represent that.

Chicago never had a chance. They were in fourth place BEFORE the Oprah-Obama team showed up, and their appearance only assured that the finish would be even lower than it may have been otherwise.

The famed “Chicago clout” just does not go that far in the world today. The world sees only the place where the Mafia and the Al Capone once reigned supreme, and today is the province of ACORN, and street fights where kids are beaten to death on video. Corruption is still the order of the day.

Because Bush won the 2000 election and the Protector of the World Al Gore lost, Bush inherited all the blame for all the problems of not only the United States, but the entire World for the next century. Right now, one of the front tires on my car is showing excessive wear. Normally I would take responsibility and replace it, but now I understand that I can continue driving on it until it blows and causes an accident where someone might die. Nothing for me to worry about, it's Bush's fault!

Rio wishes it had Chicago’s crime and violence levels.

I have been to Rio and Chicago no comparison.

.......and Rio is just like Disney World. Look up crime and corruption in the dictionary, I’m pretty sure it gives Rio as an example.

Let’s all send W a Thank You note. He’s crushed the dreams of Valerie Jarret and Obama’s other fellow mobsters to cash out of their slum property holdings and saved the taxpayers a TON of dough. Probably also save the lives of dozens of Olympic attendees. (But I heard Cook County HAS enacted a RAILROAD TIE BAN.)

That's ONE big difference between Leftists and The Wise. But there are many others!

To Leftists, it's always somebody elses fault, and everybody who has a grievance is a victim.

To The Wise, each of us is responsible for his own actions, decisions, and fate. We make our own luck.

I learned this at a very early age. I was in a very unhappy situation, and I knew--at age 10, 11, 12, somewhere along there--that the only person who was going to get me out of that mess and make my life happy and successful was ME! This wisdom has served me very well.

I got myself out of that mess, and ever since my life has been happy, successful, and GLORIOUS!

I am definitely NOT a victim of anything, and nobody feels sorry for me--especially ME!

I worked my way through many, many years of college; worked hard, saved my money; and retired on Easy Street.

I also managed to carry quite a few other people along with me!

I established a scholarship program for the indigent. This was before any legislation requiring nondiscrimination. But I insisted that NO descrimination be involved--according to anything--as long as the person in question wanted to go to college to benefit himself or herself.

I did many other things to put people through college too. I have no idea how many people I've sent to college.

I also put my wife through 4 years of college, and each of my children has gone through college 3 times!

The results between Leftists and The Wise are striking. New Orleans and Detroit are excellent examples of what happens when Leftists are in control. Both look like war zones. "It's somebody else's fault!"

If Leftists have their way, Detroit and New Orleans are the future of the entire U.S.A.--at best. On the other hand, Zimbabwe might be the future of the U.S.A. if Leftists can seize sufficient control.

Leftists are scoundrels and fools.

The scoundrels perpetuate the cult of victimhood in order to exploit the fools.

Not all of those scoundrels are sociopaths, of course, but sociopaths are notoriously attracted to the Left because its rhetoric of "good intentions" provides a cover for them to exploit the fools. This sort of thing is so common to sociopathy as to be expected--and sociopaths do not disappoint this expectation. They flock naturally to the Left and are right there spouting off platitudes, crying crocodile tears, making promises, feeling sorry, encouraging victimhood, and feathering their nests at the expense of all those fools who think they're wonderful. It's an old story and a familiar one.

The fools are too stupid to understand what's going on--and they are even more dangerous than the soundrels! They are their enablers!

Any decent person who supports the Left is a fool!
