Obama fails.

Well, Barry went to bat for his hometown of Chicago and for the USA, so they might hope to host the 2016 Olympics.  Barry stuck his neck out, and he is the worse for wear for it.

CNN was all ready to report an Obama triumph, but the IOC had other plans.  After a passionate plea to the IOC, the votes were tallies and Chicago came in dead last, eliminated in the first round of selection.

The announcer is particularly funny, repeating “Chicago is Out?” Yes, Mr Newsman – Chicago is out.  Period.

Honestly, i don’t know why Barry and friends should be so surprised.  President Obama has been running around for months telling people how the USA is rotten.  In that context, is it surprising that the IOC wouldn’t want a sucky nation like ths USA to host the Olympics?
