While soldiers are dying in Afghanistan due to lack of support from President Obama, he is finding time to fly off to Denmark on the taxpayers dime to lobby and campaign for crime ridden Chicago, Illinois to be home to the 2016 Olympics.
WASHINGTON – — Putting his political prestige on the line, President Barack Obama has set aside doubts about whether he can leave Washington and will fly to Denmark this week to make a personal appeal to the International Olympic Committee on behalf of Chicago, his adopted hometown.
The White House announced Monday that Obama will arrive in Copenhagen on Friday, just before Chicago makes its formal presentation to Olympic officials who are also considering Tokyo, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro to host the 2016 games. A decision is expected later that day, within hours of Obama’s appearance.
Also along for the trip are First “Lady” (in question) and talk diva Oprah Winfrey.
From USA Today:
First lady Michelle Obama is back in campaign mode, though now with a very select electorate: Members of the International Olympic Committee
Another world famous Chicago resident will also be making the case, talk show host and businesswoman Oprah Winfrey. Mrs. Obama cited Winfrey’s knowledge of the city, as well as her "extra star quality."
"She’s Oprah," Mrs. Obama said. "Enough said."
The U.S. delegation also includes former Olympic athletes as well as Chicago residents. "We’ve got a great overall team," Mrs. Obama said. "Oprah is like the icing on the cake."
Baby got back, and President Bush has game!
Can you say, Executive Privilege?
In the words of Austin Powers….”Yeah Baby!”
Despite the 7′ 6″ giant Yao Ming, Team America still managed to take the Chi Coms to task in Olympic Basketball and officially handed them their asses!
Aug. 11 (Bloomberg) — The U.S. men’s basketball team opened its Olympic run with a 101-70 win over host China in Beijing, where the Americans are seeking to reclaim the gold medal they lost in 2004.
Dwyane Wade scored 19 points to lead Team USA, whose supporters at the Olympic Basketball Gymnasium in Beijing included U.S. President George W. Bush.
America, Fuck Yeah!
Probably out of fear of being hanged or tortured by the Islamic idiots who rule Iran, an Iranian swimmer showed the true face of Islamic Cowerdace by backing out of an Olympic Swimming event in which he was up against an Israeli competitor.
An Iranian swimmer pulled out of the Olympic Games men’s 100m breaststroke heats on Saturday, just minutes before he was due to compete against an Israeli rival. Mohammad Alirezaei’s lane one was empty when the field left the starting blocks while Israel’s Tom Beeri, starting in lane seven, finished fourth.
Israel, the Middle East region’s sole if undeclared nuclear power, considers Iran its main strategic threat because of its nuclear programme and repeated predictions of the Jewish state’s demise by senior Iranian leaders.
It would appear that the Iranian olympic team is being trained by either the French Military or the Democratic National Committee for they seem to have the same tactic in the face of adversity. Quit, surrender, retreat, we cannot win is the same banner carried by Obama, Pelosi, and Murtha.
At least he pulled out, which is probably what John Edwards should have done! I truly believe that the Iranian sissies would probably get their asses handed to them by even a bunch of Jewish Girls! I highly doubt this was out of “Solidarity” with Palestinians, it was more likely a case of this Iranian/Islamic schmuck not being able to bear the thought of loosing to of all people…..A Joooo!
