Chicago Loses Bid for Olympics

Thank God.

For the morons at Think Progress, who think mocking a Republican president is de rigeur but mocking the narcissistic bleatings of Teh One is tantamount to "hate," sweet, sweet tears. The reason conservatives cheer the pwning of Obama is the sheer hubris of the POTUS and FLOTUS, thinking that it is an appropriate use of the president's time to fly to Europe for such a singularly unimportant (not to mention costly) venture as the Olympics. Contrary to what the commenters say, the Olympics never bring more than temporary jobs to the host city, and the money spent hosting the Games is rarely retrieved. But keep coming up with original thoughts like, "Why does the Right hate America so much?"

UPDATE: I knew it! It's all George W. Bush's fault!

Note to moonbats. We have tougher immigration laws because of terrorist attacks. As the guy asking the immigration law question should know. It's not that we hate foreigners.

UPDATE x2: More bitch-slappin' of HopeNChange here.

I, for one, am exhausted by our new permanent campaign. That might sound strange coming from somebody who runs the Horse Race Blog, but it is true. The ominpresence of the Obama campaign apparatus is, frankly, wearing me down. I can’t get away from him or it, even in my down times. Watching the Office on TBS used to be a real pleasure for me and the missus, but now we must be interrupted by the President of the United States cracking lame jokes at us in the promotion of a second-rate comedian. There is no escape. And so it continues today. What should have been a story about Chicago - or better yet, Rio (good for you, Rio!) - is now a story about…Obama. Of course. Because just about everything in the public sphere must, must become a story about Obama. Because Obama injects himself and his campaign appartus/mindset/worldview into everything.

I was hesitant to place a bet on the outcome of the health care debates, but I’ll place one here. Sooner or later, the American people are going to say, “Enough is enough” with this constant, incessant politicking that is inevitably built around the person of Barack Obama.

UPDATE x3: More goodness.
The left confuses standing beside the nation in wartime — something the left by and large failed to do — with hoping an arrogant president and the corrupt City Hall machine that backs him fall flat on their faces on an international stage.
