    have you tried looking at it from their point of view:

    Obama succeed=America fail
    Obama fail=America succeed

    pretend for a minute it's GWB and not Obama, that might help you.

    I never thought that way about GWB though. I disagreed with him on most every issue, but he won the elections, and he was the president. I could bitch and moan some, but I never pulled for his policies or initiatives to fail.

    then it is fortunate for you that you did not see his policies and initiatives as threatening or harmful to your way of life or the future of the country. no doubt the nutjobs and their followers to whom disneydude alludes are going to be supremely unhappy for several years.

    I did see them as such largely. However, he won the election, he had the right. Hoping for failure at the cost of the country is a pettiness I won't engage in.

    .
    Who cares about the people that actually live there?
    Do they have a voice?

    Chicago residents hoping Olympics bid a bust


    A poll released this month by the Chicago Tribune showed residents almost evenly split, with 47 percent in favor of the bid and 45 percent against; that's a drop from the 2-1 support the newspaper found in a February poll.

    Members of a group called No Games Chicago hope he's wrong. They're headed to Copenhagen to tell the IOC that Chicago is in such financial straits that it cannot afford the games and is such a hotbed of political corruption that it doesn't deserve them.

    "We are bringing materials to back up our claim that Chicago is not fit to host the games," said Tom Tresser, an organizer for the group."





    I guess they were heard anyway regardless of you too busy to hear them pushing your partisan bs.
    Thank you

    I'm kidding.
    I was about to say, not if the BoSox have anything to say about that

    But anyhoo, any chance for President Putz to get his ass handed to him is a good thing for the country!

    Re: Chicago doesn't get 2016 Olympics

    I remember a time when Americans especially republicans would have been happy when the Olympics would have come to our country.

    This guy certainly was:

    President Bush Meets with Chicago 2016 Bid Committee and United States Olympic Committee Members

    THE PRESIDENT: I want to thank the members of the 2016 Chicago bid to get the Olympics. Listen, Mr. Mayor, you and your committee have put together a great plan. It's a plan that will make America proud.

    They say that the Olympics will come to Chicago if we're fortunate enough to be selected, but really it's coming to America, and I can't think of a better city to represent the United States than Chicago.


    President George W. Bush and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley hold up a T-shirt touting Chicago 2016, during a meeting Monday, Jan. 7, 2008, with with members of the Chicago 2016 Bid Committee and the U.S. Olympic Committee. Said the President, "This country supports your bid, strongly. And our hope is that the judges will take a good look at Chicago and select Chicago for the 2016 Olympics." White House photo by Joyce N. Boghosian This is a well thought out venue. There will be -- the athletes will be taken care of. People who will be coming from around the world will find this good city has got fantastic accommodations, great restaurants. It will be safe.

    And so I -- this country supports your bid, strongly. And our hope is that the judges will take a good look at Chicago and select Chicago for the 2016 Olympics.

    Thank you all.


    Also don't remember liberals cheering when New York lost its bid for the Summer Games of 2012
