Skip to comments.Chicago torpedoed by anti-U.S. sentiment?
Posted on 10/04/2009 5:32:28 PM PDT by RED SOUTH
Some Chicago officials say anti-American resentment likely played a role in Chicago's Olympic bid dying in the first round Friday.
President Obama could not undo in one year the resentment against America that President Bush and others built up for years, they said.
"There must be" resentment against America, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said, near the stage where he had hoped to give a victory speech in Daley Center Plaza. "The way we [refused to sign] the Kyoto Treaty, we misled the world into Iraq. The world had a very bad taste in its mouth about us. But there was such a turnaround after last November. The world now feels better about America and about Americans.

F U J J
These people are simply delusional.
Did last November also atone for original sin?
I’ll go look up “ROTF,” but without being sure of its excat meaning, PING!
Earth to Orbiter, Bush was the one who got Chicago into the top four. Orbiter? Hello?
These guys are so dumb: they don’t even have basic facts right. Kyoto came up under Clinton. He put it at the bottom of his in basket when the US Senate, with a vote of 99-0, warned the president not to even bother sending it to them because it would destroy the US economy. Bush simply moved the Treaty from the bottom of the Clinton in-basket and to the Oval Office trash basket.
Earth to Orbiter, Clinton sent a “sense of the Senate” bill to see how Kyoto might fare, and all the senators, your uncle included, indicated that they would not vote in favor of the treaty. Orbiter, is your radio on?
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, is it still Bush’s Fault?
I saw a clip of Sen Roland Burris D, Ill say this exact thing on Friday after the bad news came down. He said George Bush’s policies caused the decline of America and nobody wanted to come here because of it. This from a senator who probably has one of the most dubious appointments to a Senate seat in the history of America. Absolutely stunning.
For some reason the IOC rejected the 37 votes submitted by ACORN registered voters. The IOC must be racists.
And very predictable.
Lets put words into the IOC’s mouth... stoopid liberals
The Rest of the World isn’t Stupid enough to Let Themselves be shaken down and extorted by the Likes of “THE JUSTICE BROTHERS”, LOIUE FARRAKKON, and THE ACORNS and SEIU’s of CHICAGO!!! THATS THE GOD’S HONEST TRUTH!!!!
TAKE A POLL!! ASK AMERICANS HOW MANY WOULD WANT TO EVER GO TO CHICAGO FOR A VACATION, HOLIDAY, OR EVEN TO GO THRU OHARE??? BET IT WOULD BE LESS THAN 12% and Their the Brain Dead!
GIVE ME RIO ANYDAY!!
p.s.: any Freepers out there who want to see Michelle (THE BUTT) in a Brazilian String Bikini*??
*Brazilian String Bikini was nicknamed “The DENTAL FLOSS” and that was back in the 90’s! They might be named “Molecules” now.....:-)
Whatta line of bull.
The whole world cheered when Obama won the Presidency.
What happened to all that glee, all that support?
What happened? They have seen that he is weak.
Sorry, I thought everyone knew what that one meant.
They will be doing this for eight years, in this case its so stupid its funny.
I was shocked at how cocky they were acting before they left..Like it was OWED to them...If I was on the Olypmic board I would have Bi*tch slapped them just for that..but wait..they did !
OWNED,not owed.. hahaha
Sure they do...until they want us to BAIL OUT THEIR ASSES WITH HURRICAN RELIEF, TYPHOON RELIEF, HUNGER RELIEF, DICTATOR RELIEF, ad nauseum........The rest of the world get just go take a FLYING LEAP !
CUT OFF ALL FOREIGN AID NOW ! ! !
Pathetic! What jokes these people are.
W controls time and space. We know this from birth.
It was a rowdy mean group of Chicago teens
Hitting each others heads with big wooden beams
A well founded fear
These teens mixed with beer
The IOCs decision was based on safety, it seems
Hardly. Rio has something like the highest murder rate on earth--about 8000 a year.
Good. Let the dumbasses continue with their mantra.
The very definition of ‘Sour Grapes’! It can’t be their fault since their bid was the very best that an utterly corrupt city could buy, it wasn’t Obama’s fault since he dropped everything to fly over there to talk about himself and his family (Obama flied, soldiers died? - Just channeling Mz Cindy), it wasn’t the citizen’s fault since they are paying heavily for the honor of being 4th, SO IT IS ‘W’s fault since he is so easy for Democraps to kick around. The Media just goes along since it is so hard to interject actual facts into the flowing sewer of these people’s verbal diarrhea!
The “New Age” democrats are a product of the NEA and really have no direction to go if “dear leader” is a fraud and failure. The attack will continue until they die. Call it a case of unintended consequences.
God, I hate those people.
I don’t know if it was Sean Hannity who coined the phrase, “BUSH DERANGEMENT SYNDROME”...and I used to laugh when I heard that term used, but I now I really do believe it’s an actual mental defect of the lunatic fringe, whacko, foaming at the mouth, rabid left wing nutjobs.
They wouldn’t want to go to Chicago as they know its a mafia like place! O was not and is not qualified to be President, we all know that!! Seems like everything he touches gets screwed up! Oh my goodness, how I dislike this man. I hate to say but this is one time I rooted against Chicago getting the Olympics. I love my country but not the man who ‘some’ voted to make him President. What a shame!
Things, they are a’changin!!!!
That is like going for a job interview, and the boss saying,"because your resume is the worst one of the lot, you don't get the gig."
ROTFLMAO - Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off...
I know. I saw an article yesterday, maybe on Drudge, that Rio is trying to clean up its crooks, etc. Imagine there are many there.
We all ‘can't stand’ Obama, lol.
Good to ‘see’ you Jaycee!
I have to admit - that made Chicago look bad. Those kids were having a good time killing an innocent student. They were creepier than the ACORN losers.
Well said! Those fat cats probably had the bulldozers ready to go, clearing out neighborhoods to build sporting facilities like the Chicoms did in Beijing-I’m glad that arrogant peckerhead and his Amazon woman got their ears pinned back!
Rio has better hookers.
Wasn’t it Obama who spent the last 9 months demeaning the US in every speech he made? Apologizing left and right?
And wasn’t it the Dems who for the previous 8 years constantly attacked the good name of the US in an effort to demonize Bush?
On his last day in office, President Clinton issued an Executive Order reducing the amount of Cyanide allowed in public drinking water to a ridiculous minuscule level that would have Bankrupted many small local Water Agencies.
The allowable level before Clinton made the change had no adverse effects to anyone consuming the water, but the Leftist Envirowacks were thrilled.
When President Bush took office, he reviewed the impact of Clinton's action and reversed it. Wanna guess what happened?
Well, Terry McCauliff, the head of the DNC at the time, got on TV and said that President Bush wanted to poison his, and everyone elses children when he reversed the Clinton Order.
Did anyone question Terry's outrageous attack on President Bush or ask him why Clinton would wait until his last day in office to make the change when he could have done it years before? Of course not. It didn't fit the agenda. Clinton only did it to trap President Bush.
Get it? Check my tagline and hope and pray I'm wrong when the 2012 Presidential Election comes along.
