    If the USA basketball team loses in the Gold Medal round would you call that a loss for America or would you call it a loss for the 10 guys on the team?

    America won, we will not ask those in Chicago to pay more taxes to line the pockets of the chicago machine!

    America won, because we all end up paying those bills.

    Funny....LA, SLC and Atlanta all did quite well financially from the games.
    Oh...those pesky little facts.

    What makes you think that Chicago would not be as successful?
    Why do you think most every major city would LOVE to have the games?

    Unions....corruption......should I go on?

    Romney actually had to come in and save the games in SLC, would you like to discuss that?

    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.
    Where exactly did I express any joy or "I hate Obama" tones in that post?

    I thought it was interesting that London put such a political spin on it, but never stated that I agree with their headline. I personally believe that the most deserving city won, and politics played little or no factor in their decision.

    As for the CNN clip, I thought that was funny as hell. That anchor couldn't keep bias in check. Rio was the odds on favorite, as I'm sure he was aware of, yet he reacted in such utter disbelief. You could just hear it in his voice... He couldn't believe that after Obama had graced the Olympic Committee with his presence, that they didn't bow to his desires. You could just hear the "How dare they" in his voice.
