    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. ..
    As a matter of fact he did. And made an ass outta himself, to boot.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    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 ???
    nope. why shouldn't he pitch our country?

    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.
    i'm certain you tore bush a new one for every vacation he took, and every event he participated in, right?

    btw......the olympics provides a world stage. we could probably use some good pub. and last i looked, chicago was in the U.S.

    I think if the "Fix" wasn't in, Obama would not go over there to risk failing.


    I think the group of people who clamored on about "bush reading to school childeren" look like raging hypocrites for ignoring Obama prefering Leno and the olympics over the troops in Afghanistan.


    I think it is telling that even Harry Ried is getting tired of Obama's lack of convictions and decisiveness on anything.


    I think Obama is going to make Carter look good.

    Iraq did have an exit strategy. It was pretty much over with by the time Bush left office.

    A lot of companies were in trouble. What did you expect Bush to do about it??

    Likewise, the people that steadfastly excused Bush's long tenure away from the white house or actions during a crisis (the reading, the ranch during katrina) somehow now crying about Obama doing something every other head of state generally does that in reality isn't going to affect his day to day ability to deal with issues or lead anymore than Bush being in Crawford did (only it'll be fewer days) look just as much like raging hypocrites.

    So, I'm curious reverend. I'll ask you straight up.

    Do you think its WRONG or IRRESPONSIBLE for Obama to be going to present the case to the IOC himself?

    Yes, I do. It's a local issue, for the mayor, not a presidential issue. I asked this before to those defending Obama, Can you show me where any president has ever gone to a foriegn country to lobby for a city to host the olympics?



    I had no problem, with Bush and the reading, There are protocols in place and you don't go moving the president all reactionary like that.

    My Father in law was a radio operator on AF1 for three presidents. I state this as fact.



    Katrina, again, Local and state issue. I have always said this. I don't blame American Samoa on Obama either.


    Crawford? Wasn't that more of a "whitehouse west"? Can you show me how he was not dealing with the national business while he was in crawford?

    On that same note, I had no problem with Obama's vacation to martha's vineyard.... These are apples to apples to me, not the olympics, not leno, not 1 contact in 70 days with the commander of a-stan.

    I don't think it is typical for a head of state to become involved in Olympic site selection. It certainly is the first time an American president has.

    From the looks of the polls and riots in Chicago, it doesn't sound like the citizens are very interested in it either.

    I would like to see all of Obama's Chicago advisors take a vow that they will not make any money from the Olympics if it does come to Chicago.
