The loss of the Olympics was indeed an event worth celebrating because no matter how the Left tried to spin it, Obama was bitch slapped upside the head in front of the entire world.
Rush Limbaugh put it best when he said, “This the worst day of Obama’s presidency. Obama demeaned the office of the president going on this sales pitch.” He doesn’t understand how delighted the world is to make him look foolish in order to take a swipe at our country . . . We’ve got a 2-year-old manchild with a Mars-sized ego, which today crashed and burned.”
The blog Red State site, vented sarcastically. “Hahahahaha. I thought the world would love us more now that Bush was gone. I thought if we whored ourselves out to our enemies, great things would happen. Apparently not. So Obama’s pimped us to every two bit thug and dictator in the world, made promises to half the Olympic committee, and they did not even kiss him. So much for improving America’s standing in the world, Barry O.”
Politico’s Glenn Thrush reported that GOP operative Matt Machowiak snarkily declared, “Actually Obama got the flowers, not even the bronze.” While it’s true that the loss must be a blow for the president’s ego, having made a last-minute trip to Copenhagen to seal the deal, it doesn’t exactly reflect well on Chicago or the rest of America. (Incidentally, this was Chicago’s fourth unsuccessful bid.) Nobody likes to see their country lose, so is reveling in it really a wise political strategy? Sure, this is embarrassing for the president, but isn’t it also disheartening for America? (No, it’s a joy for America in that it prevented us adding even more $$billions to the multi-trillion dollar deficit than Obama has already racked up)
In case you missed it, this is Rush Limbaugh at his very best. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Barack Hussein Obama.
