CNN anchor in utter disbelief as Chicago is eliminated

I guess the Obama mojo is waning even outside the US. Not even speeches by Oprah, Barry's wife and The One himself could stop Chicago becoming the first city ousted from the Olympic bid. Watch as the CNN anchor stutters in disbelief. Comedy gold. I guess the Olympic delegates are all racists too, eh Jimmy?




Obama’s Olympic failure will only add to doubts about his presidency (The Times Online UK)


It was only the Olympic Games, the White House will argue — not a high-stakes diplomatic gamble with North Korea. It is always worthwhile when Mr Obama sells America to the rest of the world, David Axelrod, his chief political adviser, said today. But that argument will fall on deaf ears in the US. Americans want their presidents to be winners.

Mr Obama was greeted — as usual — like a rock star by the IOC delegates in Copenhagen — then humiliated by them. Perception is reality. A narrow defeat for Chicago would have been acceptable — but the sheer scale of the defeat was a bombshell, and is a major blow for Mr Obama at a time when questions are being asked about his style of governance…

This has all added to the perception that Mr Obama’s soaring rhetoric — which captured the imagination during last year’s election — is simply not enough when it comes to confronting the myriad challenges of the presidency. His spectacular Olympic failure will only add to that.



Limbaugh: Obama "Failed" in Copenhagen, Unmasking Weakness and Ego


“When you stop to think about it, folks, doesn’t it make sense?” Limbaugh asked. “Our president, Barack Hussein Obama, has been running around the world for nine months telling everybody how much our country sucks…. Why would anybody award the Olympics to such a crappy place?”…

“[Obama] doesn’t realize that the hatred for this country has not abated. There may be some love for him, but their certainly is no respect for him,” Limbaugh said.

“He doesn’t understand how delighted the world is to make him look foolish in order to take a swipe at our country,” Limbaugh said of the president. “We’ve got a two-year-old manchild with a Mars-sized ego, which today crashed and burned.”

The IOC’s rejection of Chicago’s bid was a “bitch-slap,” Limbaugh said. “Upside the head.”
