All you farking Republicans praying for Obama to fail, here you go. Fark you all.

stupid obama can't do anything right, arghhh
 
2009-10-02 11:33:48 AM  
Are the right wingers already blaming this on Obama?
 
2009-10-02 11:34:20 AM

Is water wet? Spending 2 1/2 years out of your 8 years in office clearing brush at the ranch is fine. Spending one day trying to bring the Olympics to Chicago represents horribly misplaced priorities.

Oh great. Now the right is going to claim they wanted the Olympics there but Obama screwed it up.

Only if we can break out the "Anti-American" flag for you and the other people who wanted Obama to fail.

I totally blame Oprah. Were I on the committee, I would have voted against Chicago based on the fact that she thought she mattered.
 
2009-10-02 11:40:31 AM  
Whatever. Chicago is a really boring place to have the Olympics.
 
2009-10-02 11:40:50 AM  
Well, can you blame the IOC? How are athletes supposed to run after eating those hot dogs with all that stuff piled on top? And don't get me started on those 6" deep pizzas!

Is this really worth of a newsflash tag, much less four of them?

/Anti-American? That's laughable.... I simply didn't want to see the American tax payers have to pay the bill for barry and his cronies to rape the American taxpayers to the tune of billions of dollars.

To the rightwingers, this is yet another reason that the military should stage a coup for a final solution to the "Obama problem"

Why don't you want people to get jobs?

i'm pretty sure one of the biggest weaknesses of the chicago bid was that it was the only finalist not to have significant federal guarantees.

after actually listening to the story on ESPN I think that we were smoking crack

we were going to build a 2 BILLION DOLLAR stadium and then take it down after the Olympics

how fnaibun stupid is that?
 
2009-10-02 11:43:46 AM  
Obviously, the IOC is racist.

:-( Ah well, the Olympics are for godless commies anyway.

/Isn't Daley usually a shoe-in for "Biggest Bribe in Any Given Room"?
 
2009-10-02 11:45:10 AM  
I am ground zero where the Chicago rally is, Daley Center. its hilarious. the news media have hyped this shiat into the ground. lul. first vote.

this is not good news for Obama. which sucks. and Mayor Daley. which is hilarious.

how many jobs would've been created?

Right- in Chicago. Where they have 3 stadiums and 2 arenas.

I was rooting for Chicago, but the Olympics are such a farce. I really wish the US would just pull out entirely.

Sure. But the Newsflash tag is usually reserved for celebrity deaths, isn't it?

ManRay: Obviously, the IOC is racist.

we sent our black athletes (pippen and robinson), or black president, his black wife, and a black talk show host (O).

Maybe they thought chicago was all black?

downstairs: I was rooting for Chicago, but the Olympics are such a farce. I really wish the US would just pull out entirely.

well, it does involve cooperating with other nations, so it's obviously socialist! and i'm sure ACORN is involved somehow.
 
2009-10-02 11:47:19 AM  
So Europe is going to get the Olympics three out of four times? That's a little ridiculous. Hope it goes to Rio.
 
2009-10-02 11:47:57 AM  
rio deserves it. the US had the summer games just 13 years ago.
 
2009-10-02 11:48:21 AM  
I went to both the Olympics in Barcelona and the Expo in Seville in '92.

The Spaniards know how to do these big events right. Go Madrid!

/pronounced "madreeth" for you castellanos
//chicago would have been lousy

No, its all politics and steroids. I dig the "international competition" angle. But that's a farce. That's why I stick to the World Cup.

so in your opinion, its ok to build a 2 billion dollar stadium then destroy it?

... because it creates jobs...

so lets just build 12 million cars then! and destroy them all...

apparently the IOC is bound and determined to use the summer olympics as a way to reward emerging economies. who wants to place bets on the 2020 games being held in india?
