    Default Obama drums up support for Chicago Olympic bid

    http://www.twincities.com/olympics/ci_13349040

    Why do we need to send the President to get the Olympics for Chicago?
    Is Chicago paying the travel costs for Air Force one and supporting flights?

    We're not...

    The International Olympic Committee will choose a host city during an Oct. 2 meeting in Copenhagen. Obama will not attend the meetings, instead sending first lady Michelle Obama to lead the U.S. delegation.
    But seriously, don't we have nicer cities than Chicago?

    Have you been to Chicago? I think it's a nice city.

    I admit that I have not, but I haven't heard a whole lot of good about it.

    Where do you go in Chicago the loop?
    The lakefront near the Shed Aquarium?
    International Live Stock Exposition by the old stock yards?

    I agree there are nice areas, but theree are some areas that Iwouldn't want to live.

    Nice town. I hope they get it.
    "Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson is history mixed with a murder mystery. Fun read, and lots of accurate Chi-town history. Of course, it took a Pittsburgher to build their Ferris wheel to out-do Paris' Eiffel Tower!

    Actually, the livestock yard would be a good place for some Olympics, Chitcago style. I can see it now: Chitcago to host First Annual Politicians for Sale & Rent Olympics! Imagine all the crowd-pleasers that could be bought and sold: votes, Senate seats, White House czar slots, community organizer chairs, terrorist advisors, anti-U.S. agitators, stimulus money, the possibilities are endless. Maybe they could even auction off the 2012 U.S. presidency.

    Is that what we have to do to get a republican back in the White House?
    Or will the messiah give a government check to his constituents so they can pay for the candidate of their choice?
