Because the Liberals are driving forward while looking backwards. And it diverts the real issues happening NOW.

For a group that wraps itself in the flag and the constitution, you guys sure have a strange sense of patriotism. Celebrating America losing? FWIW, something like 85% of the country, including the previous president, supported Chicago's bid. Just goes to show that the loud fringe on the right is increasingly becoming more and more isolated from the mainstream. Kepp jumping the shark boys but be careful not to drown.

85% of the country couldn't point out Chicago on a map.

Almost no one knew this vote was happening until Obama injected himself into it. And only slightly more than ZERO knew about after that.

Please...85% supported it? Where do you come up with this stuff?

Did 85% of the country realize that it was going to gost between $5-%15 BILLION taxpayer dollars to have the Olympics here?

Did 85% of the country know that not ONE Olympics in history has EVER realized the economic advantages the organizers claim?

Mitt Romney disagrees with you.

SLC winter Olympics had a $101 million surplus.

The LA Olympics in 1984 had a $225 million surplus (in 1984 dollars)

That doesn't count the tourism taxes. Nor does it count the profits the broadcasters make. Nor does it count the profits the local retailers make. Nor does it count the profits that local property owners can make renting out their houses.

Look, I don't know the details of the bid. Some games are privately funded, some are not (I believe LA was). But I find the gloating over an American loss almost as offensive as I found the left's doom and gloom over the surge.

Do they all really hate Obama more than they love America?

I disagree with Mitt Romney. So I guess we're even.

I couldn't begin to care less in either case.

I think the basic issue is that BHO was built up as the greatest thing since sliced bread so the people that don't like him revel in any "failure" on his part.

I don't see that he had much choice. If he goes and they pick Chicago, he looks like a hero.

If he goes, and they don't get it, at least he tried.

If he doesn't go, and they don't get it, he gets criticized by some because he didn't try.

To me, this is such a nothing issue, it doesn't even show up on my radar.

It's pretty much a non issue to me too. But I was working on the house today listening to the radio, when the announcement came through both Beck and Limbaugh were partying like we had caught Bin Laden. (Of course if we do catch Bin laden under Obama's watch I'm sure they figure out a way to criticize him for that too).

My backing of Rio had nothing to do with politics, I just believe that it should have gone to a country that has never hosted one.

As everyone who has seen all of my posts, I am a patriot true and true. Being a modest sports fan, the Olympics is a world event, not an American event. There are 216 nations participating in the 2012 Olympics. That is a fact. Why does the Olympics always have to be in U.S.A. I am perfiectly happy with the Olympics being held in Reo. I do NOT want the Olympics to be a political event, Although it has throughout history. Let's everyone get together and perform as Human Beings not as a member of a political faction. I personally Will NOT Hold Obama Responsible for Chicago getting or not getting the Olympics in Chicago. Let the games go on in Reo with peace! Let the best man or woman win!!!!!!!

What was the big waste of taxpayer money?

Chicago's bid? That's been going on for many years, Obama has been actively involved in it for one day.

Or Obama flying to Europe? Did you find it a big waste of Taxpayer money that George Bush flew to Crawford Texas on a monthly basis for the entire 8 years of his presidency (77 trips in all)? Did you find it a big waste that George Bush also flew to China to watch the Olympics in 2008?

I think it's hysterical the number of people who found fiscal conservatism on January 20th of this year.

The humor lies in the absolute arrogance of the President, the Media and the boot lickers being exposed for the world to see.

While there B.O. also met with the commanding general. This Pres. does more multi-tasking than any other that I can recall. If he wouldn`t have gone some of the same people complaining that he did go would be complaining that he didn`t.
