    Geez... Take a look at the headline from the Times of London:

    "Obama’s Olympic failure will only add to doubts about his presidency"

    They sure see this as a political slap in the face to Obama...

    Then there's this... Your "I can't believe they dissed the Messiah" moment from the CNN anchor when they announced America received the fewest votes and was out:

    Its just typical of the "I hate Obama" crowd. They want desperate to try to spin this as an Obama failure.

    Sad that their hatred is so strong that they are happy that America didn't get the bid...as long as they can somehow try to tarnish Obama.

    I've said it for a long time, they don't care if America fails...as long as Obama does.

    I agree....I was simply commenting on the wackos who are so desperate to attack Obama that they are happy any time America fails at something.
    This thread is a good example.

    Tucker Case posted, Quote (I'm from Chicago. I reside here. We spent 48 million on a waste of time in a town where a ton of the inner city schools are literally falling apart.)

    Such are the joys of dwelling in a Democratically Governed environment.

    I think they are happy that Obama failed...this is the difference.

    Now is that kosher.......I think so, worked for the liberal media for eight years.

    Re: Chicago doesn't get 2016 Olympics

    Although I would have liked to have seen Chicago get the 2016 games, the one good thing to come out of this is that this means that LA will be back in the running for the 2020 games.

    The 1984 Olympics were a huge success despite the boycotts. LA profited substantially from the games.
    Same thing with Salt Lake City in 2002.

    I would glad have my city invest 50 million on a bid if we might be able to generate millions more in revenue, job creation and free publicity.
