    In politics as in business, if you don't want to get elbowed out, you do what the other guy does if it is working better than past practice. Whether or not it was appropriate for international governmental authorities to make the case for their nation for the Olympics, it will be after this succession. I don't think the Olympics review board is going to complain: it just highlights how prestigious their institution is.

    Putin is a freak, hitching the one's aura to that, just made me chuckle..... what next naked horse back pics and judo?
    Not a freak to the Russians. They got their 2014.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    How does Communism relate to wanting to get your country prestige and money by doing what is working for other nations? Didn't realize Communism has a monopoly on diplomatic efficiency and practicality.

    But hey, I'm just glad we could find a way to turn matters of common sense into hyper-partisan issues.

    I figured I would beat the hyper partisans to the hyperbolic punch, I thought I took it far enough over the top for it to be evident it was done jokingly, apparently this just underscores that it is impossible to outdo how far fetched some of the hyperbole is.. even in parody.

    It doesn't help that I didn't read most of the posts up until this last page.

    It worked so well with Clinton they cannot resist doing it again.


    All hail the conquering hero!!......

    A done deal.

    Re: Obama going to Denmark to pitch Chicago Olympics

    I wish I could find one of those OVERPOWERED posters with Obama on it and an Olympics symbol in the background. The quote beneath it would read:

    "When a $100,000,000 isn't enough..."

    But how much did the other nations spend before I decide if that's what's really going on? A $100,000,000 isn't that much for an Olympic gamble considering the immense sum of capital one makes from hosting the games. While it is possible the United States has invested more, having the president there to protect your investment isn't a bad idea if a smaller spending but still reputable country which hasn't had a turn in awhile makes a strong case.

    No, you have absolutely no right to make that accusation. You have no idea the kind of bond that we form amongst ourselves. To suggest that the Rev would exploit his fallen brethren is absurd and insulting. I would recommend you apologize but that would require a measure of class that Im not sure you possess.
