Wendy's Chili: Remember when he tried to get the Olympics to come to the U.S. and Republicans cheered when it went to Brazil?Good times.
JerseyTim: The fact that the United States dominated the Olympics goes to show just how correct President Obama was when he talked about the the need for a strong infrastructure provided by a stable government in what Republicans have called his "You didn't build that" speech. The United States Olympic Committee provides the foundation which allows our athletes to train their hardest and give it their maximum personal effort to win gold.
kxs401: I guess that's why socialism-hating China came in second, eh?
Satanic_Hamster: Wait. I thought Obama ruined the Olympics buy not allowing the athletes to wear American flags and all the athletes hated America for going along with it.
Cinaed: So there's no room for higher education, NCAA and title 9, athletic scholarships, etc being the cause for the skill and aptitude of those athletes wearing our colors?
Bob16: As Chomsky brilliantly noted sports are a way of conditioning the population to accept unquestioning loyalty to group think.

ChimpMitten: Average medals per Olympics under Bush: 67.25Average medals per Olympics under Obama: 70.5Obama wins that competition.
baka-san: What the fark did I just read?
coeyagi: ChimpMitten: Average medals per Olympics under Bush: 67.25Average medals per Olympics under Obama: 70.5Obama wins that competition.Maybe because Obama expanded the role of the Olympics and now, through the wizardry of socialism, there are more medal-bearing events? Just spitballing, there can't be any solution that doesn't spring from his being history's greatest monster.
