Andy Sullivan (you know, the Charlis Johnson boy): The Olympic Spirit
[…] Criticizing a president is one thing - and important. Hoping he fails - even to the point of celebrating a national loss - is a sign of partisanship that has become pathologically blind to any sense of perspective or patriotism. [END]
No, silly. It was a WASTE of time for Obama to gallivant all over Denmark for an Olympic bid seeing that Obama says that America SUCKS all the time, you blithering moron.
Big Government: Chicago Drops From ‘Second City’ to Fourth City (I have already cited this one but)
So, not only did Chicago lose out in its bid for the Olympics, it lost in the FIRST ROUND. It is kind of like the world community saying to President Obama, “Not only no, but Hell No.” […]
AMEN to that HELL NO deal. America sucks…remember?
Breitbart: Chicago doesn’t get 2016 Olympics
[…] Not even the presence of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama—nor a long list of celebrities—was enough to help the United States’ third-largest city. […]
Earlier this week, House Republican Leader John Boehner criticized Obama’s Olympics lobbying jaunt to Copenhagen. “Listen I think it’s a great idea to promote Chicago but he’s the president of the United States, not the mayor of Chicago,” Boehner said. “And the problems we have here at home affect all Americans and that’s where his attention ought to be.” RNC Chairman Michael Steele also said he wanted the Olympics to come to Chicago, but thought that “at a time of war, at a time of recession … this trip, while nice, is not necessary for the president.” Maybe, just maybe, it would have made more sense to focus on winning the war in Afghanistan than winning the Olympics for Chicago. […]
That’s right. America sucks…remember? I mean, really! 45% thought that Chicagoans didn’t need it and 47% did. And, +/- 2% or 3% doesn’t leave much room for arguing. America sucks…remember?
And here’s a REAL moron from the Huff and Puff: Thank You, Mr. President
[…] Chicago is a beautiful city that would have made a perfect backdrop for the Olympics. The President was right to fly to Copenhagen to try to land the games, not for the sake of his city, but for the good of his country. The fact President Obama failed makes me respect him more for taking the chance, and the fact many right-wing figures opposed the President’s mission shows just how narrow-minded partisanship makes us all. […]
Moron. America SUCKS, dip-dunk moron you!
I know. I already linked her also but…
[…] Mrs. O’s emotional pitch was supposed to bring tears to the eyes of the audience, according to crony White House Olympics cheerleader Valerie Jarrett. Chicagoans are no doubt shedding tears — over the ballooning costs of a potential win. […]
Remember. America sucks and Michele has NEVER been satsified with America! REMEMBER?
Allahpundit (the man BEHIND the times on just about EVERYTHING): Comedy gold: CNN anchor in utter disbelief as Chicago is eliminated
I must admit I was a little surprised to read this scathing account of cluelessness and incompetence in the effort to land the 2016 Olympics for Chicago in the New York Times … until I realized it ran in the Sports section. However, political reporters Jeff Zeleny and Peter Baker wrote it, and their inside look at the run-up and the reaction at the White House shows just how much this administration has bought its own press: […]
The New York Slimes. America sucks…remember?
One of the push back strategies regarding Obama’s olympian fail is that all presidents and world leaders actually participate in trying to secure the Olympics for their nation. That’s true. But who cares? Who even remembers after just a short year. But because the media can’t get over its love affair with Obama everything he does takes on a larger scale. […]
It comes down to respect.
President Obama showed none. […]
AMEN! America sucks…remember? America sucks at EVERYTHING! Just listen to Obama as he TRASHES this country at EVERY turn. And people wonder WHY he failed? Remember, America sucks!
Obama: America sucks! We have screwed up! America has ruled for long enough! America sucks! REMEMBER THAT OBAMA!! Moron.
From it’s entirety…
From their speeches to the Olympics committee, here are the arguments Michelle Obama and President Obama made for Chicago landing the2016 games.
“I was born and raised on Chicago’s South Side.”
“I played games with the kids in my neighborhood.”
“Sports were a gift I shared with my dad — especially the Olympic Games.”
“I never dreamed that the Olympic flame might one day light up lives in my neighborhood. But today, I can dream, and I am dreaming of an Olympic and Paralympic Games in Chicago.”
“That’s why I’m here today. I’m asking you to choose Chicago. I’m asking you to choose America.”
“I’m not asking just as the First Lady of the United States… not just as a Chicagoan… Not just as a mother raising two beautiful.”
“I’m also asking as a daughter.”
“My dad was my hero.
“And when I think of what these Games can mean to people all over the world, I think about people like my dad.”
“I’ve brought somebody with me today who knows a little something about change. My husband, the President of the United States — Barack Obama.”
Do it for her.
“I come here today as a passionate supporter.”
“I come as a faithful representative of the American people.”
“I know you face a difficult choice among several great cities and nations with impressive bids of their own.”
“I’ve come here today to urge you to choose Chicago for the same reasons I chose Chicago nearly twenty-five years ago.”
“I fell in love with the city I still call home… it’s where I met the woman you just heard from.”
“I’m sure you’d all agree that she’s a pretty big selling point.”
“I never really had roots in any one place or culture or ethnic group. Then I came to Chicago.”
“I worked alongside men and women who were black and white.”
“I came to discover that Chicago is that most American of American cities…”
“…a city where I finally found a home.”
“I ran for President because I believed deeply that at this defining moment.”
“Nearly one year ago, on a clear November night, people from every corner of the world gathered in the city of Chicago or in front of their televisions to watch the results of the U.S. Presidential election. Their interest wasn’t about me as an individual. Rather, it was rooted in the belief that America’s experiment in democracy still speaks to a set of universal aspirations and ideals.”
“I urge you to choose Chicago. I urge you to choose America. And if you do; if we walk this path together; then I promise you this: the city of Chicago and the United States of America will make the world proud. Thank you.”
Don Surber…THANKS! But, America sucks…remember? And, Don? Obama is not the American “president”…he’s a usurper AND a non-natural born citizen.
It’s America! WE SUCK!
Remember? Approve the Chicagoan Olympics because we suck. It’s amazing.
There has been a growing narrative taking hold about Barack Obama’s presidency in recent weeks: that he is loved by many, but feared by none; that he is full of lofty vision, but is actually achieving nothing with his grandiloquence.
Chicago’s dismal showing yesterday, after Mr Obama’s personal, impassioned last-minute pitch, is a stunning humiliation for this President. It cannot be emphasised enough how this will feed the perception that on the world stage he looks good — but carries no heft. […]
But carries no heft? America SUCKS! Remember?
Chicago has lost its Olympics bid, despite Obama’s insertion into the process. People are shocked because they figured that Obama would fly in if and only if the deal was done.
But why? That assumes a typical allocation of the presidential prestige. President Obama has been anything but typical in the use of that asset. Let’s remember that this is the President who in the last nine months has appeared on both 11:30 PM talk shows. This is the President who can be seen on TBS in a spot advertising the upcoming George Lopez Show. This is the President who has had more primetime news conferences and more joint addresses to Congress than any president up to this point in his campaign tenure. This is the only President to pull a “Ginsberg” (and my guess is that he’ll set the record for that when it’s all said and done). This is the President who has gone out on the campaign trail again and again and again, even though the election is long since passed. This is the President who puts himself - and his family - on the cover of all sorts of supermarket and newsstand magazines month after month. This is the President who never hesitates to inject himself into the public consciousness for any little reason he likes. […]
Just about everyone has missed that AMERICA SUCKS!
Remember folks, ALL these people believe that Obama is GREAT and America sucks…remember?
[…] Too bad, when we have come so far in creating the most free and open society in history, built on individual rights and responsibilities, that we might have to see it subverted by a dramatic leap forward in the means of personal expression. For all my mockery of Glenn Greenwald’s sockpuppetry, I admire the fact that the vast majority of his poor logic and handwringing is conducted openly, under his own name. I think. It takes a brave man, of some principles, to attach his name to some of the positions that Greenwald has. Same thing with Andrew Sullivan, whose opinions I have no respect for, but whose willingness to associate himself with his own absurd gyrations, seeing that he actually appears to believe them, is laudable. Even John Cole at the ridiculous site, Balloon-Juice, is big enough to use his own name. Though … maybe because the word ”asshole” is such a prominent part of his political discourse … Cole does throw a fit if anyone notes which university employs him as a communications instructor … not a connection you necessarily want made by any tuition-paying parents concerned about the quality of their child’s education. (Nice overweight nude Pam Anderson video ad, by the way, John. You really need money that bad?) […]
America sucks. That’s why Rio De Janeiro was chosen over Chicago. America sucks and the LOWEST city on the list with absolutely NOTHING to offer for the Olympiads of 2016 was chosen OVER the USA.
Obama. America sucks.

[...] Now is the time for the mainstream media to show it’s not totally in President Obama’s pocket. The Washington press corps will never fault Obama for pushing hyper-liberal policies in a moderate-to-conservative country. Ideological criticism by the press is reserved for Republican presidents ....
The thriller in Copenhagen was not just a test of Obama. It’s a test of the media’s willingness to cover the president professionally and honestly when he stumbles. A love affair with a president should have its limits. [...]
Obama. America sucks.
So much for our "racism", Barack.
Now we know why Chicago lost out--The IOC did not appreciate Obama's arrogance. [...]
Don Surber translated a piece from Denmark: Berlingske:
“The fact that Barack Obama came, could not do it. I think he lacked emotion, it seemed too empty and business-like. When Tony Blair promoted London he was around three days to lobby and talk to people. You can not just come with the train one day and try to affect everything. People have felt that it was a lack of respect for the Olympics and sport in general. I think people felt it was too business-like to get into the way we have now seen it many times, and you would have feelings back.”
Hans Bonde, professor of sport history at the University of Copenhagen, told the newspaper: “Here come the media favorite Obama just before the deadline and made showoff. He clearly won the battle in the media, but it turned out indeed to be indifferent. IOC members did not feel important, and they were indeed reduced to spectators and not players." [...]
Poor Obama! Barack and Michele need to be very ashamed! They traveled to whine and dine but, AMERICA SUCKS. Nice Obama Clan. Proud now? Obamas...TWO asshats and too bad their kids don't know that at the moment but I am sure when they grow up they will. Maybe.
If POTUS & FLOTUS go to Copenhagen but the Official White House Photostream doesn’t include it, did it really happen?
Why would the White House exclude this wonderful, fantastic, fantabulous, super-d-dooper, “Ego Has Landed” moment? [...]
Wow. It seems as though the Marxist House doesn't want the Obama Olympic Trip on their web site. Wow.
Chicago's Daley is at 35% approval, in part because of opposition to his desire to host the Olympics. And the recent case of Honor Student Derrion Albert was only one of dozens of recent teen killings in the streets of Chicago. The Olympics are great but it isn't as though both Daley and Obama didn't have more pressing problems right at home.
Add in Obama's incredible expansion of government and we're well beyond time when someone has to pay up. The cities are going broke and, thanks to Obama, so is America. [...]
[...] I could almost hear Obama's ego slam into the ground.
I suppose you can't blame him. He is a legend in his own mind, and doesn't realize the rest of the world has caught on to his "all flash, no substance" characteristics. Obama is the kind of person that thinks he is the deciding vote, the voice of reason, and the apple of everyone's eye. And the Olympics in Chicago would have been a great gran finale, wouldn't it? After all, the Democrats have all but determined that it is fate he will serve two terms, and 2016 will be that final moment of his presidency where the world will be weeping because they will be losing the great Obama. The 2016 Olympics in Chicago could have been his grand farewell. Obama's chance to stand up on a massive world stage with his arms in the air under the five rings of Olympic brotherhood, granting a farewell to the new world he helped engineer. . . but in the end, it turns out that Obama is just another politician, and that the world really doesn't care what he has to say nearly as much as he thinks.
The press is devastated. How could it be that Obama was unable to sway the vote? How could it be that the great Obama was unable to get the IOC to eat out of his hand? [...]
And then THIS "little bit of data" from WGN:
[...] With this President, Barack Obama, who has an international flavor, international following, his parents from two different continents, [you would think] there would be a great deal of international appeal . . . that did not happen [...]
TWO DIFFERING CONTINENTS? TWO DIFFERING CONTINENTS? WOW! Even WGN knows that Obama is NOT a natural-born citizen! So much for NOT knowing! I suppose Copenhagen has some data "we don't have", eh?
