    Such gruesome ignorance.


    Think about the poor brazilians and their lack of capitalist paper cash.. It doesnt matter that their lifestyle is superior, their health magnificent compared to fat blobs in Europe and the US. But then again, thats not shown in GDP, so it doesnt matter
    Yes, Brazil is so superior, with their famous street children and squalid slums. Hopefully they can get that cleaned up in time to put on a veneer of cheerfulness before the Olympics...

    Most of Obama's presidency has been spent trying to fix the utter failure that was the past administration.

    Yeah, health care has everything to do with Bush's failures

    The IOC considers a bunch of things when selecting a city... like which city has the best ideas for facilities, which city can pull off the games the best, and most importantly, which country has never had them before.

    To my knowledge, Brazil has never had the Olympics before, and it has the money to host the games. It makes more sense to give it to them than Chicago.

    Like Afghanistan...where we've spoken to our field commander....once? Or like Gitmo....that used to bother the Left.

    Please.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    He has both houses... have at it.

    The Obamer and his buddies at ACORN and the Clinton Admininstration, are responsible for (a program started by Carter) forcing, under the penalty of law, banks to make loans to people that couldn't pay them back.

    That's the reality.
    Just check how the Dems dealt with it in Congressional hearings.
    It wasn't Bush, but for those lacking the facts... it's an easy card to pull from the bottom of the deck... just like the race card.

    .
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Well, it can take time to clean up a cluster**** if it's massive enough. And this one was (torture, anyone?).

    I still appreciate the fact that Fox News exists and they, like the liberal press, have their place. But they need to brush up on their finesse in hiding their obvious slant to the news a little better, for God's sake!


    Obama's Olympic Failure Highlights Limits of His International Appeal - Political News - FOXNews.com
    I have to laugh at the selective outrage from the Left. You think this is ONLY a Fox News story?

    Obama's Olympic Failure
    Stinging defeat could take lasting toll on Prez's image

    Obama's Olympic Failure | NBC New York

    Yep, NBC is a major Conservative network eh?

    Obama’s Olympic failure will only add to doubts about his presidency
    Obama’s Olympic failure will only add to doubts about his presidency - Times Online

    And of course the timesonline is a Republican mouthpiece right?

    President Obama’s Olympic-sized failure
    President Obama’s Olympic-sized failure - BostonHerald.com

    Gee, when did the Boston Herald become a Fox network?

    What we have here is another example of is your epich failure to comprehend what is actually happening in the world and instead of adding to a coherent debate, merely spew Democrat talking points.
