    Personally, I think that this gives the U.S. an unfair advantage over nations whose elected leaders are too busy with official constitutional duties, such as administering their countries.

    Let's see, the war is going badly in Afghanistan while the decision on the General's request for more troops is deferred, the Iranians are testing missiles, and having secret nuclear facilities discovered, terrorist plots are being popping up like toadstools within our borders, and the President, is going to promote a sporting event for his home town.
    Yeah I too mourn for the days when the president could only concentrate on one thing at a time

    Even though I still think that he should have kept his face ( and ears ) out of this battle at least he will not spend more than a day on this noise.

    Didn't the British PM and PM 'S wifey go and beg for London to be given the 2012 O Limp PICS ? 'Bama shoul not be playing monkey see monkey do but should be setting the tune for others to minnic.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    No I am absolutely rooting for USA to get the 'Lymics ! I just do not believe that it is dignified for our head of state to be going to Copenhagen to grovel for the olympics. He has already sent the First Lady, and the Oprah is there to cheer on Chicago, and there are tons of athletes there.

    It is just too risky a trip. The cost of failure to the American image is too great if he fails.

    Why shouldn't the Leader of the Free World go to negotiate for the world's greatest games. To be in the olympics is a great honor why shouldn't the president negotiate for the games on behalf of our great country? There's nothing risky about it. America has negotiated and lost the games before. I think you're overthinking this one

    Didn't Bush go and watch the Olympics in his favorite foreign country ? Maybe he wasn't just doing one thing at a time. Bush awas actually multi-tasking sinc e he saw the 'Lympics and he went to visit were all of the WallMART 'GOOD' STUFF CAME FROM. ..

    No those two things are related. That would have to be two separate things like watching the super bowl and eating pretzels

    As per the Associated Press President Obama will go Denmark to pitch Chicago's bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics.

    This to me is a lobbying effort. FCOL he is already sending his lovely wife Micelle, and the not so lovely Oprah, along with enough athletes to field a baseball team with a fully staffed bull pin.


    I think that this is high risk move by the Prez and if he does not get what he wants he will look like a Bufoon !!!

    What do youz guys think ???
    Great move to bring jobs to the states and prestige to our country. Well done Mr. President.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
