I know this is old news, but it's been eating at me for some time, and here's what I think. Everyone knows that President Obama went to Copenhagen to personally campaign to get the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. Everyone also knows that the USA was the first one cut from the running. Major embarrassment to President Obama. I personally don't care if the Olympics come to the USA or not, but here's what I think happened, and why it irritates me so much. I think that the Olympic committee cut the USA first as an intentional slap in the face to both America and President Obama. I think that all of the "love" that Europe has shown to our president, and all of the grovelling that Obama has done over there in the last couple of years, meant big fat nothing. Europe, and the rest of the world wants to put America in her place, and they have proven that they have no respect for our President or us. Period. That's fine with me. I'm not particularly fond of them either. But I think it's a bad idea for the world to bite the hand that feeds them. This would be the perfect time for us to withdraw foreign aide, and use it to pay down our $10 trillion deficit.
