Default Olympics to Chicago and Obama....No Thank You!

Just heard Chicago has been eliminated from hosting the 2016 games. Obama flew over to Copenhagen after his wife and Oprah flew over the day before spending 1.5 million dollars on fuel payed for by the US tax payers. The end result no games to Chicago. WOOHOO! Nice to see someone can tell him no.

Most of the people in Chicago didn't want the games anyway...

Fail. Again.

Well, it sucks for those in Chicago hoping for construction jobs, but Rio has topless beaches.

Rio deserved it. We've held the Olympics plenty of times. South America has never hosted.

Since the Olympics belong to the world, everyone should get their turn hosting. I'll save being greedy for the medal count.

Gotta tell you Tony...I am VERY pleased that Chicago didnt get the Olympics. As a citizen of Illinois I had no confidence that the Olympics wouldnt have been sucked into the cesspool of Illinois politics. (Remember we are the state in which all govenors spend two terms...one in Springfield and one in prison)

The Olympics need to stay as far away from scandal as possible and I am sure that had something to do with the decision.

If we would have given the bid, I can say with all confidence that the average citizen might have been able to get tickets to the womens preliminary ping-pong matches, but the big ticket items (basketball..track & field...etc...) would have been given away as political paybacks/favors or been sold off to those corporations that support the corrupt Chicago Machine.

Chicago's Mayor is perhaps the most corrupt mayor in the country, and the amount of kickbacks that he is missing out on in contracts and purchases makes me giggle.

Not me. I wouldn't have been happy with Madrid or Rio. Like I said, when it comes to hosting we should share the wealth.

I'll root for us to win every gold medal but hosting just isn't that important.
