America has negotiated and lost the games before. I think you're overthinking this one
    Because no president of this country has ever stooped to this level of irrelevance. Groveling to the IOC is beneath the office. Then again, so is this moron who'd doing it.

    By the way, this would result in constructing massive venues for these events that would be basically useless afterward. Just what low-income housing will they demolish to accomplish this? There's not a square inch of Chicago available unless they start knocking stuff down.

    By the way, who here doesn't believe that the fix is in, and this has already been awarded to Chicago in a shroud of darkness.

    I mean, if Obama can't even deliver this............

    I sense some face-saving going on here. It distracts from the other abject failures.

    And doesn't Chicago have a long list of issues that are more pressing than conducting the Olympics right now? That is one troubled city right there.

    Prove to me with his actions that I am wrong and I will concede. Until then stop "bitching" and having a "hissy fit" because I critisized your god king.
    You're on, Rev. Now shut your piehole.

    Obama meets face to face with McChrystal

    AFGHANISTAN: Just before leaving Copenhagen, President Obama met with Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, on the tarmac in Air Force One for about 25 minutes. While the meeting was news to the world, the White House had learned on Wednesday that McChrystal would be in London, and the meeting in Denmark was then set up.
    Given these facts, it's entirely possible that Obama decided to go to Denmark just so he could meet with McChrystal face to face while also promoting his country on a world stage.

    Gee. He's doing two important things at once. Will wonders never cease?

    Given these facts, it's entirely within the realm of possibility that Obama decided to go to Denmark to enable him to meet with McChrystal face to face.

    Wow, he allowed McChrystal to stand on the tarmac with him for a whole 25 minutes. I'm sure Obama decided to go to Denmark only the day before he left, and on the day Michelle left to go there.

    I'm impressed.

    I'm sure they resolved the new strategy for Afghanistan with all that time to talk. Victory will soon be ours !!

    Drop it, Gill. Your pitiful mewling about Obama caring more about the Olympics than issues in Afghanistan has been silenced by his actions.

    I didn't even read it. so Obama is willing to fly and spend all sorts of time with the olympics, but the General commanding afghanistan is allotted 25 mins on the tarmac?


    again, what ****ed up priorities.
