Top 10 Reasons: No Chicago Olympics

… from over the transom. I don’t know where this originated

Top 10 Reasons Obama Didn’t Win 2016 Olympics for Chicago

  1. The IOC is racist.

  2. Obama was distracted by his 25 min meeting with Gen. McChrystal

  3. Who cares if Obama couldn’t talk the IOC into Chicago? He’ll be able to talk Iran out of nukes.

  4. The impediment is Israel continuing to build settlements.

  5. Not enough stimulus money went to the IOC.

  6. According to Biden they’ve been clear all along that they didn’t really want the Olympics.

  7. This isn’t about the number of Olympics “lost”, it’s about the number of Olympics “saved” or “created”.

  8. Clearly not enough ‘wise Latina’ judges are on the committee

  9. Unlike Chicago, dead people can’t vote at IOC meetings

  10. It’s Bush’s fault!!

Push, in Italian please?

I almost get the feeling that the IOC almost wanted to punish the US for its blunder in the financial mess. This is my gut feeling, might just be gas though.

Veramente!

Let Rio pay for the bill it’s not like our country is floating in extra cash. Plus, if you really want to go to the Olypmics you get an awesome vacation out of it.

I’m hoping for many hot Brazilian thong-clad asses in the background at all the events. In fact, I would like to rename it the Thonglympics.

No1 reason seemed to be the restrictive visa and entry policy of the US established after 9/11.

Verification of the #1 reason:

“Today’s vote by the IOC members reflects the tattered relationships that remain after eight years of the catastrophic reign of the Bush administration.” – Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill.

The arrogance in this quote astounds me. I love how so many Democrats are convinced other countries all conspire against us because of our arrogance. The irony is amazing.

I mentioned this before, and that is that perhaps this is a form of punishment for the US and its financial mess. Just an idea.

Talking Iran out of nuking everyone would probably be easier.

It’s even more curious because Chicago got selected for this “final round” that just occurred with Brazil’s win during the reign of Chimpy McHitler.

And by curious, I mean stupid.
