    Yeah, and it's getting real damned annoying. I'm sure the President of the United States has a lot on his plate. He should be reading bills that are being sent to him to sign, he should be doing all sorts of affairs of State. Instead, he's in Copenhagen running his mouth for the most corrupt city in America.

    Why is it that we've only been going downhill with Presidents as of late? At some point, I think we deserve and improvement.

    Yeah, if we're lucky we'll only lose 3/4 of a billion dollars if the Olympics come to Chicago. Athens lost over a billion in the 2004 Olympics. They spent over 14 billion dollars building venues, most of which sit empty now.

    Yeah, we really need a shot in the arm like that. Of course, Obama's Chicago union buddies will love it.

    Re: Obama going to Denmark to pitch Chicago Olympics

    I would be agreeing with some of the outrage here if he was actually vacationing while over there. Or if it was some week long confrence he was attending.

    All in all it probably took literally an hour or two out of his work day. Unless you are against a president going for a run, or mountain biking, or having a bit of personal time to spend with his wife and kids, or to go watch a game, or anything like that....then how can you be against this? At least unlike those things it actually has a political and diplomatic purpose to it.

    How is this any difference than having the Superbowl champs to the White House? When we just had 9/11 hit a few months before did Bush focus on terrorism and not invite the 2001 Super Bowl winners to the White House? When we were embroiled in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, what about then? What about when the economy was first having troulbe and bailouts started to be talked about? During the Immigration issues? Were you and others on here screaming how he's not setting his "priorities" by having Super Bowl champions come to the white house for a photo op and food?

    And again, this at least has iternational diplomatic ramifications on it as well as something that potentially shines a positive light on America; far better bonus's than welcoming Bill Bellichek and his camera up to the White House.

    If you want to bitch about Leno or ESPN you won't find me disagreeing, I'll be standing here beside you.

    This is a poor fight and is far and away different than Leno or ESPN.
