Wh- what do you mean Chicago is eliminated? We took two fully-staffed jumbo jets to Denmark, spent thousands of American taxpayers' dollars, made a huge carbon footrpint... I came with Oprah and I wore my Golden Olympic Dress and shoes. And I'm married to The One. What do you mean Chicago is eliminated?! This decision is RACIST!

It is a beautiful city - however, one block from the beach is some horrific poverty and a very dangerous place but, there has never been an Olympic event in South America and Obama just gave Soros’s company there 2 Billion of our tax dollars.

As a suburban resident I am pissed. I had big plans for my “Keeping it Real” armored vehicle tours of the area. Tourists would pay me big bucks to ride in an armored vehicle guarded by Blackwater types driving thru vibrant “organized” neighborhoods being shot at by “youths” with 9mm handguns (so no one would get hurt). I am sad beyond belief.

I have been betting RIO all along. Lula is Pres of an accendant country, USA is on the decline. The rest of the world is laughing at us for electing such a buffoon as Obama. All of SA was destined to vote for Brazil, most of Europe would support Madrid, Asia would go for Tokyo, so where were wwe supposed to find support?

Our government believes it can buy friends.

There is a great book I urge everyone to read. Its called Everything I need to know, I learned in Kindergarten.

It says, you cannot buy your friends.

I’m also a surburban resident, 40 miles from Chicago. I was planning on a nice long vacation AWAY so that we did not have to deal with the mess that the Olympics would have caused, even this far out. I am SO relieved it is not coming here. The relief is in addition to the joy I feel that 0 and Daley are stimied in their quest for the Olympics. Just can’t stop laughing.
