    Obama going to Denmark to pitch Chicago Olympics

    Obama going to Denmark to pitch Chicago Olympics - Associated Press - Olympics - Sporting News

    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 ???

    This should be more of a job for officials in Chicago, Obama has more pressing issues to deal with.

    Well, it's too late for that.

    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.

    He does seem to be going out on a limb here, if the US loses the bid now he will look kind of dumb for doing this.

    That said, having the Olympics in the United States brings a lot of money to the city that hosts it, so more power to him if he gets it.

    I don't watch Glen beck videos. Got a transcript?

    Note: I rarely watch nonmusic or humor videos linked here at all, I don't have the attention span for just watching stuff.

    I usually have a desire to puke when I see or hear Glann Beck so I will not watch the video. I just do not see him as anythnk even remotely approaching honest.
