"I believe that [Friday]'s action is just the latest example of the cultural breach that still exists between the United States and several leaders of the global community of nations," Rush said in a statement Friday which was not received by The Hill until Sunday.
"[Friday}'s vote by the IOC members reflects the tattered relationships that remain after eight years of the catastrophic reign of the Bush administration," Rush continued. "It will obviously take some time for the Obama administration to continue its important work to repair that breach."

People aren’t buying that “Bush’s fault” BS anymore.
I thought it was because the IOC guys were “rasis”.
If the OIC is truly happy that Obama is NOW President why wouldn’t they consider Chicago? Doesn’t make sense. The OIC is in the present while the Dems are in the past.
Oooo, The Chicago pimp!
I think anyone just listening to Bobby Rush can figure out that the poor man isn’t playing with a full deck and probably never has.
....of course Bobby Rush is gonna blame Bush...blaming Whitey is his standard mantra since he was a Black Panther organizer back in the 1960s.
It didn’t take that long. Blogos’ appointment did it less than four hours afterward. I did not dedicate the fool’s name to memory, sorry for lettin’ y’all down.
Oh, BS, people are sick of the arrogant narcissist and his expectations of SELF agrandisement. They’re acting like this is the first time he’s been rejected, when he’s been rejected by the whole European Union states, and every one of our allies on every one if his ridiculous policies.
How many times do they all have to reject him before he finally gets it? Or will that ever happen, since he claims so many victories that have never happened?
Maybe Chitcago didn't get the gig because it's a dem controlled chit-hole that nobody in their right mind wants to visit!
The only thing unique about Rush is that he is incoherent, kind of like a drugged out street person.
Thanks, Bobby, we could have never dreamed anyone would blame Bush. /s
Translation: Dear Leader can reverse this problem within the first decade of his rule.
Bobby doesn’t deserve to have the name “Rush.” he should change it to Clymer.
No kidding! I was starting to get seriously worried.
Yep, I’d like to see a list of property sales in the area over the last few years.
