So I guess the U.S.O.C. is stocked full of racist, right-wing, nazi, bigoted red neck fear mongers?
The IOC & USOC have been at odds for quite some time (mostly about $$$). But this was known during the entire bid process.
Methinks the Chicago bid team was into some serious self-delusion.

Don’t forget that Halliburton and Dubya ordered the IOC to screw Obeyme. It’s always Bush’s fault..
It's obvious, Karto. The USOC headquarters are in Colorado Springs, you know. Home of Focus on the Family, you know, and only gave Obama 39%, you know.
Ping. That must be it. The World’s President is finding out the world can be a cruel place. What did The Dear Leader think, I wonder? That he and “we’ll take no prisoners Michelle” would by their mere presense make it a fait accompli for a Chicago Olympics?
There is no way the Europeans would support a US Olympics this year. Their too busy trying to create the “One Europe” thing. Anyway, from what I’ve read about how the IOC selects Olympic cities, that decision had already been made before the Copenhagen meeting. Onada and his crowd were shown up to be the ideological amateurs they are.
