    No, I cannot. When the organization they represent is flawed, unfortunately their performances are all tainted by those flaws. I generally enjoy the Olympics, but this time around it's just not going to happen.

    Obama discriminated against the othe candidates and blatantly politicized the Olympics.

    Now, there's something to be proud of.
    The delegation is not the pool of competitors. The pool of competitors is based on who meets the athletic standards for participation in their sports. The delegation serves as "ambassadors" of the U.S. It can include former athletes, Olympians, and others including political officials, business leaders, etc.

    Discrimination is ok, sometimes?

    Right, and discriminating against heterosexuals is now acceptable because of all the homosexual discrimination in the past. Two wrongs obviously make a right.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No. I'm not going to watch the Olympics because the only nation whose athletes I could root for will be represented by a bunch of individuals with no morals or character, who are there solely for the purpose of expressing that they have no morals or character. I cannot support that. Sorry.



    He has his positive qualities, unlike the current POTUS.
    Sounds like you are the one lacking in the morals and character department.

    I think the Russian law is idiotic, but so is a US President and the fools who follow him thinking this is a bold move.
    Agreed. Don't be surprised if Barack picks pink tutus for the Olympian uniforms.

    This president picks the weirdest issues to take a stand on... while totally ignoring millions of American families suffering due to Obamacare.

    Oh well, 2 more days and Dear Leader will leave for his Hawaiian vacation.

    The rest of us can eat cake.

    You think Obama would have learned after the last time he got into a stare down with Putin and Obama blinked.

    Oh my god. This fascist authoritarian chic on the right has to stop. If you admire Putin you are not a conservative, you are an authoritarian ideologue.

    Hell yea!
    Give Putin the diplomatic middle finger!
    Love this move Obama! Great move! [/FONT][/COLOR]
    This is an excellent way to heap more embarrassment on the Russian prestige project that is the Sochi Olympics and it costs us nothing while supporting a moral good. With the US and France taking similar stances I hope other Western countries follow suit. It was a good decision any way you slice it. Unless of course you have a rabid inability to condone anything the President does.
