Sad isn’t it? Last week I found myself cheering for the French President. Strange times, indeed.

And earlier in the day, the CNN people said how Michelle Obama stole the show and was winning over the IOC delegates. They talked about how they wanted their pictures taken with the Obamas, yadda, yadda, yadda. They talked about the president’s winning presentation. They said that the IOC guys had to appear unbiased, since the vote had not yet happened, but that they were clearly wowed by the First Couple.

Since these were unforeseen events, CNN didn’t have anything to say. News stories have to fit into teh simpleton templates that the MSM use to feed us news. The story line was supposed to be how the Obamas and Oprah won over the IOC delegates and won the games for Chicago. That story was already written. Now they had to go back to the drawing board on live TV.

Several days ago I argued that Chicago must be fixed as a winner - even Obama is not that stupid to risk the remnants of his credibility as a leader going there w/o a guarantee.

Obama was not only a loser - he lost in the 1st round and he came last!

He is is more stupid than it was previously estimated.

Michelle should have shown the Committee her arms, and the President should have shot some hoops. That would show the Committee we’re serious about physical fitness.

Now, can we get back to something serious at the White House?

Zerobma is even dumber than most of us thought. The pompous, arrogant ass obviously believed that the whole world loved him, and that, simply by gracing Copenhagen and the IOC with his divine presence, the city of Chicago would be a shoo-in for the 2016 Olympics. Not only does the world not love you, Zerobama but more than half of the US electorate does not love you.

Enjoy your first big dose of reality, Zerobama, there are many more to come in the remaining days of your single term presidency.

You are right on the money. Obama can’t be from Chicago. Anyone from Chicago would know you don’t step into the ring and risk getting knocked out! A guy could get hurt! Sheesh.

All that could be somewhat true. But even if they were “wowed” by the Obamas, it still doesn’t make them want to to Chicago! It seems like such a no-brainer - Chicago? Rio? Anyone?

Excited. (a) because only Obama supporters were going to profit, (b) the city and its inhabitants would have been plundered, (c) the nation would have been plundered, and (d) the whole process managed by such complete corruption would have reflected poorly on America, (e) all I needed was another comparison between Obama and Hitler -- would have been counting the days until he announced the construction of the largest stadium ever built.

TWO VIEWS:

The talking heads were saying that Chicago was in the bag, and that Obama (& his wife) would not have gone there personally if it wasn’t a sure thing. His handlers had it set up so he would come home in a great triumph while the MSM fawned at his feet....’Obama the Great’! But that video of a boy being beaten to death by Chicago ‘Yoots’ killed the deal.

Another view is that Mayor Daley, who is no stranger to political arm twisting, knows a lot of Obama’s dark secrets, and told Obama to get his ass over there and get the Olympics for Chicago, or else. It’s how politics works in Chicago. And as Obama knows Chicago Politics all to well , it wasn’t a matter of saying NO to Daley. When Daley told Obama to jump, Obama will only ask “How high?”.

Regardless of which view is the correct one, Obama has lost some serious prestige in the World view and here at home.

‘THE EGO HAS LANDED’ has become his new tag.

The Olympic’s new theme song:

Oh, lighten up. It's not like he had anything else that he should have been paying attention to instead of flying off to Copenhagen.

At least the economy is strong and the country is at peace.
