I had an amusing thought after watching again a video clip featuring Olympians at the convention last night talking about how Mitt Romney saved the 2002 Winter Olympics. And my amusing thought is this: Imagine if Barack Obama had been placed in charge of those same Winter Olympics. What would have been the result? Most likely The One would have delegated all the responsibilities to others and the Winter Olympics would have been a huge FAIL. Even most Democrats, if they were honest, would admit that Obama just doesn't have it in him to run such an enterprise. Of course, the USA is a much larger enterprise and at that task Obama has proven to be an enormous FAIL.
Anyway, keep that thought in your mind: Obama running the 2002 Winter Olympics and try to keep from laughing out loud.
Or getting the Olympics for Chicago.
Obama could not run a sidewalk lemonade stand.
Gotta disagree, slightly. My take:
The One would have delegated all the responsibilities to others, borrowed huge amounts of money, and the Winter Olympics would have been a huge FAIL.
“It’s unfair that the rich countries like the USA get so many medals, while some less fortunate countries get none. We need to spread those medals around, so every country gets their fair share”
The OBAMA OLYMPICS:
I imagine the whole subject of Olympics is a pretty sore spot for a big baby like Obama, after his international fail in getting the Olympics for Chicagoland.
I can think of all sorts of scenarios starting with the opening ceremony tribute to Islam.
...only if Mama Jarrett handed him a hundred million tax payer dollars and pointed him in the right direction.
You bet he’d’ve saved those Olympics! He’d’ve organized the HECK out of that community.
“I get sick of hearing all these atheletes who think they won their medals because they’re faster, or worked harder than other people. Well, there are lots of people who are fast and work hard out there. The truth is the government built the stadium. If you have a medal, you didn’t win that.”
Is this a trick question?
He could have saved it if he could’ve made Faux Golf an event.
Or the $600,000,000 Romney took (form the tax payers), to single highhandedly save the Olympics.
It’s to bad that Romney prohibited the Boy Scouts, from being a part of the opening ceremonies.
Obama’s Olympics Czar, Kieth Olberman, would recommend a $500B bailout, then sit around and wait for nothing to happen.
He would have suspended all races, replaced by Muslim outreach.
Only if they were in desparate need of a hockey puck.
Sure, why not? He was given a Nobel for Peace... /S
Obama would have forced those who won more than one medal to spread the medals around.
Could Barack Obama Have Saved The 2002 Winter Olympics?
That would make a great campaign poster.
No telling how much money would have been squandered on union no-work jobs over the years it would take to get Chicago ready.
At least terrorists wouldn't need to go far to get weapons, just tale the L to South Chicago.
