World REJECTS Obama and Michelle ~ Epic Fail!
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (CBS)
A stunned crowd stares at monitors in Daley Plaza after Chicago was eliminated from the bid for the 2016 Olympics.
Despite four years, millions of dollars in planning and a last-ditch pitch from President Obama, the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid ultimately fell short.
The City of Chicago was eliminated in the first round of voting, before any host city was selected.
An expert called it the "biggest shock in IOC history."
A disappointed USOC President Larry Probst left the venue and refused to comment, saying the Chicago delegation would respond later.
Supporters gathered in Chicago were equally shocked. Many left the rally in Daley Plaza tears.
Wild Thing's comments.....
I hope they pick RIO. But molre then anything I am soooooo thrilled they did not pick OBAMA.
And to you leftie lurkers you do not realize that Obama is NOT about America. He HATES America. If Chicago had been picked this would be all about OBAMA and NOT anything to do with America and espepcially not about the
athletes. And the bottom line it is ALL about the athletes.
Rush Limbaugh just said..." This was a Bitch slap folks upside the head."
In one of the posts below I posted about what Obama said to try to win this. It was all about him. If you can stand it this is what Michelle said to try to win Chicago. It was ALL ABOUT HER just like Obama's speech WAS ALL ABOUT HIM. SICKENING. Just listen to the beginning to see what I mean. LOL

A 50,000-strong crowd celebrates as Rio de Janeiro wins the nomination

Rio de Janeiro is to host the first Olympic Games in South America.
International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge made the announcement in Copenhagen today, to the bitter humiliation of Barack Obama.
The U.S. president was embarrassed on the world stage after the IOC rejected his very personal bid for the 2016 Olympic Games to be hosted in his home town of Chicago.
Despite the president's unprecedented appeal, from late afternoon on, the momentum had all been with Rio.
Tokyo was also eliminated in the first round, leaving just the Brazilian capital and the Spanish city of Madrid in the running.
And after an inspirational speech from Brazilian president Lula Inacio de Silva today, some commentators were left in no doubt.
South America is the only continent that has never hosted the Games - which means that it was the only option of the four currently on the table that gives IOC chiefs the chance to make history.
'I honestly think it is Brazil's turn,' Mr de Silva told the IOC Committee earlier today.
'It is South America's bid. This is a continent that has never held the Games.
It is time to address this imbalance. It is time to light the Olympic cauldron in a tropical country.'
'When you push the button today, you have the chance to inspire a new continent, make Olympic history,' Carlos Nuzman, Rio bid chief executive and an IOC member, said. 'Vote Rio, and we offer a gateway to 180 million passionate young people in South America.'

They did pick Rio. That is going to be one fun, wonderful Olympics! The people of Rio are warm and compassionate. And the committee made the right choice. It's a first for South America and all the history. Even if you don't go for the games, go for the history!

Rio De Janeiro won, I'm elated. We can pull that suicide watch on the Obama's, issue those matches and gasoline for them to self immolate. Chicago can't simply sweep the slums under the rug as they had planned, they are still there, a testimony to Obama's cronies and their corruption. Did I mention the suckups like John McCain who aided their rise to prominence?

I guess the IOC was not favorably impressed by the three stooges, Michelle, Oprah and Barrak. Their slapstick, pandering, obnoxious floor show just didn't hack it. ABC=anyplace but Chicago!
I wonder how many taxpayers in Chicago and Illinois are silently saying prayers of thanks.

I wonder what the taxpayers of America paid for the WON to take his entourage, and her to take her entourage, and the advance security detail; over there so that they could further embarrass the once finest Nation on the Planet. Those to egotists don't even fly on the same plane? WTF,O?
I don't know if we can stand the damage that they can do in the rest of their thousand + days in office.
We are so Scrued!
GOD save the USA, Please! It is serious! Jimmah Cahtah only scrued up the economy and allowed Iran to go theocratic. This Charlatan is set on total destruction of our constitutional system. Some of which cannot be undone, and he has Reid, Pelosi and their minions as tools to achieve it.

Obama the muzzie, got beat out by the city that has a huge, giant statue of Jesus. And to think Jesus has been banned on Christmas here.
So thanks to obama, Chicago remains the giant shining cesspool on the lake.

"Take this Obama", says the IOC. Daley and his gang will cry tonight and tomorrow start work on another scheme to line their pockets.

Trailblazer Burris already says it's Bush's fault...like Burris knows anything. Never mind the nine months Zero spent dashing around the world explaining how much we suck.

I had read that this effort to get the Olympics to Chicago cost 44 million dollars. What the heck cost 44 million dollars?

Mark, yes, that statue of obama is so
The thing is too,Michelle and Obama still
will not realize it is not about them.
Posted by: Wild Thing at October 3, 2009 12:16 AM
Ron they sure will.
Posted by: Wild Thing at October 3, 2009 12:17 AM
Eden, good grief, I guess Bush will still
be blamed by the left for the next 1000 years.
What horrible people on the left.

BobF., good grief, outragous.

Nothing could have been more fitting than the snub of the Os, as in Oprah and Obaminkees.
The world does not revolve around Barry Sortero, Or whatever that impostor's real name is.
Europe has shown the Os what true asses they really are.
And Michelle is an ugly woman, inside and out.
