    None of the first thing have anything to do with the second. This is all phony outrage and over the top stupid rhetoric. If somehow this was preventing Obama from doing his job in any way, you might have a tiny, remote point, but in fact it does not effect his job so you have no point at all. It's just latching onto something convenient to bitch and have a hissy about.

    What message did George Bush send to our troops during his four-day happy fun time in COMMUNIST (!!!) China to chat up bikini-clad hotties



    maybe sneak a few drinks



    and drunkenly hoist the American flag (upside down, no less)



    while sitting in the bleachers for hours at a time?

    I disagree, and here is why:

    Getting the Olympics in Chicago will not only help the Chicago economy, but will help the economy of America in general. A lot of things will have to be purchased, and we are talking about approximately 10 billion in economic stimulus. And guess what else? That stimulus money will come mostly from the private sector. No government bailouts, and no government stimulus money. This is free money for the American economy, folks, so why not go after it? Obama makes the trip, and talks to Olympic committee, and here is what happens:

    1) They choose another city, and we are out no more money than a plane trip.

    2) They choose Chicago, and a little badly needed money to help jump start the economy starts rolling in.

    To me, this is a no-brainer. Obama has charmed Europe already, so maybe
    he can charm them again, and do a little something for the economy in the process. It won't be much of a boost for the economy, but a little is surely better than nothing.

    Show me where Bush was drunk in China. I don't believe he was.

    Nothing wrong with looking at a little ass, now and then. Just because they are politicians doesn't mean they are any less human. Politicians love ass just as much as anybody else.

    The last olympics held here in Salt Lake City cost the taxpayers 625 million dollars, about $1 of every $3 spent.

    Olympics are VERY expensive. Athens cost 7.2 billion Euros or over 10 billion dollars.

    Can we afford that?

    Actually, according to the good Reverand, if it is not job related, he is not focusing on the troops that have died.

    Nope. I didn't say he was drunk. I said he MAYBE had a few. Given his asinine non-presidential behavior and the embarrassing pictures we've seen of his antics during his four-day Communist fun fest (WHILE TROOPS DIED!!!!), it's a fair assessment.

    Hell, the guy couldn't even get up out of his seat without help...



    And I guarantee you, if President Obama was caught on film doing this



    the cons would have a freaking embolism.
