    This is one of the concerns I had about him during the election. When has he ever done a "real" job that wasn't just about giving speeches and being a pretty face? That's what community organizers do, frankly.

    Obama To Denmark: Plans Emergency Trip To Copenhagen To Pitch Chicago Olympics
    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.

    I think the fix is in, and this is all fake publicity for Obama...


    but if it wasn't Jordan would have been the man to do it....
    why does it matter who did what in the past? because it's obama? aren't other countries lobbying?

    geez....this is a non-issue.

    It amazes me that those that can rally behind the notion that you need a CONSTITUTIONAL amendment to ban flag burning because its unpatriotic are going to have vitriol for a man for attempting attempting to make sure that the U.S. plays host to an international event of immense proportions dating back through numerous y ears and a history of great importance that would turn all eyes onto America, both in countries that dislike us and like us, to see and show our country and our culture.

    I don't care if this was Bush lobbying it for (God help me) Dallas if he was in and that was the host city. If other heads of state are NOT lobbying for it, then I agree, he shouldn't go. But if htey are, he should definitely not have the U.S. be the disrespectful schlub who mails it in essentially.

    To use an olympic analogy. If the other countries are sending their best I want to send the Dream Team over and make sure we ourselves a gold and show that we are the best, not send over the scrubs we sent over to play basketball up to the last olympics.

    And in regards to crawford being White House West...

    I've heard you say you have a history in IT. You can't tell me you honestly believe that the President could not be in constant communication and ability to work the entire flight over and the entire time he's outside of that meeting. In reality that meeting may take up...what? A few real "hours" of his time in total that he couldn't be working still? And if that's the case, is it really any different than going mountain biking with Jim Zorn?

    I agree with you 100% on the Leno and Letterman stuff. I don't think this is anywhere near the same ball park. One has absolutely zero to do with the Presidency. This at least is involving actual international politics.
    thank you, thank you, thank you. this is really a pretty telling thread.

    Um, everyone is acting like he can't work on airforce one. He doesn't need to use snail mail people. He has teleconferencing, e-mail, and phones to work with. He was only on the ground a few hours and then back in the plane to WORK. I don't get it. You all act like he goes into some box while traveling and has no way to work with people while there.

    Your question is without any basis in fact. He is a stateman and a damn good one. I'm not sure how you can say he hasn't done any "work." That's absurd.

    it's an issue to you ONLY because it's obama. i think what he's doing is worthwhile. as i said, the olympics is a world stage, and we could use a shot in the arm.

    Strawman.



    I am sure he can work. The time for "working" is over.


    He has talked to leno, more than he has talked to his commander in A-stan.

    He thinks its more important to grab credit for the olympics than it is to deal with the wars.
