Why It's Okay to Laugh at Obama's Olympic Fail
Newsbusters ^ | 10/6/2009 | Greg Gutfeld

Posted on 10/06/2009 10:33:06 AM PDT by Mozilla

So while chuckleheads like Jesse Jackson and Senator Roland Burris hilariously blame George Bush for Chicago losing the 2016 Olympics, whiny columnists like Mike Lupica are up in arms that conservatives might be gloating over President Obama’s big screw-up. Apparently laughing at all this is somehow anti-American, because Obama is our President, and he was doing this for all of us.

You know… kind of like when Bush was trying win a war in Iraq – and all those left wingers stood behind him.

And that’s my first point: The right has every right to gloat over Obama’s humiliation, because, thankfully, NO ONE DIED.

Unlike, say during the Iraq war, where, whenever there was a roadside bombing, the progressives did their own special victory dance – using the consequences of war to gloat over an embattled president and an unpopular country. I didn’t hear much of the smarmy press calling them out.

So, if I take pleasure in watching Obama’s big fail, it’s only because it proved a point I made before he was elected: that being likeable, in and of itself, does nothing for America. To protect our nation and further our interests, our leader must reject the need to be loved by the world, and embrace being feared, even hated. I know that’s hard for our guy. Being a self-proclaimed “citizen of the world,” he enjoys the accolades of Libya, Venezuela, Iran, Cuba and Russia. With friends like that, who needs enemies.

But hey – screw the Olympics. Maybe Obama should now focus on bringing the World’s Fair back to Chicago. If there’s one thing that could make dictators like us more, it would be temporary structures filled with stuff from other countries.

And if you disagree with me, then you’re probably a racist.

Why can’t we have a little schadenfreude. After all, they tell us that it’s Bush’s fault that we lost the Olympics.

MSNBC is beating this one to death with , “Republicans and conservatives hate america”

The best was the dem congressman that said that this is the turning point for democrats and that the voters will now vote democrat in 2010 over this. Imagine having hopes like that. The real result was this SNL parody:

To the left anything critical of Obama is racist. They can’t look at things level headed. They are even going after a SNL skit for being racist.

MSNBC can’t defend Obama so they just go after Republicans. It is standard for them. They are a joke. They will take whatever lengths they can to stretch the truth in their favor.

As for the youtube link the NBC suits ahev already banned it.

I don't need validation by anyone. If I want to laugh at 0bama, I'll laugh without remorse. No one tells me what I should and should not laugh at.

Since I refuse to bow to political correctness I guess that makes me a racist?

uhhbama has spent 9 months apologising for America being such a suck1$$ place, and he expected the olympic committee to then vote to send the olympics here? Chickens came home to roost.

I cheered because all of those corrupt gladhanders and grifters in Obamaland Chicago got a big fat turd for a present.

The Olympic kitty is over a billion dollars, and everyone of those scumbags was absolutely thrilled to suck up their unfair share. Now they get squat.

Another reason to cheer is for the benefit to our American athletes. Nobody trains their whole life to earn a trip to Chicago. They deserve Rio baby.

Every soldier arriving home in a body-bag, and photographed by the media, was a victory dance by the gloating Democrats.

I saw this on Red Eye last night on FoxNews What the MSM doesn’t realize is that we are not laughing because our president; instead, we are laughing because our ARROGANT president failed, and arrogance about anything just makes everyone want him to fail. RIO DE JANEIRO 2016!

Obambi deserves the Olympic millstone around his neck. No President goes into a meeting without preconditions and the agreement firmly in hand. When Chicago got bounced in the first round after his speech, people should be taking notice he’s going to fail with Iran using his “no preconditions” crappola.

MSNBC is trying to co-opt conservative Levin type talking points “Obama hates america” becomes “Conservatives hate america” . They are saying this will turn the public + voters back to them.

Problem is , this year finally with Rs out of power, the tide is against dems, enjoy it.

It’s all about Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

The Liberals got caught with their pants down, got them into a wad, and then got all wee-weed up.

Sounds like a laundromat is in the Liberals future, to wash that undocumented worker* right out of their hair.

*Undocumented Worker = Barrack Hussein Obama or whatever his real name is.

The President of the United States of America goes to a meeting that a low level underling should handle and we shouldn’t laugh?

ANYONE with any corporate experience knows the guy is a joke, as well as the joker. A big joke deserves a big laugh.

Not only did I enjoy "The One" getting a well-deserved slap in the face, but the looks on the 0bamunist crowd in Chicago was PRICELESS!
