The Obamas Taste The Agony of Defeat

The Brass Ring Eludes The Big 'O'

Fresh from yet another failure in Copenhagen, President Barrack Obama arrived back in Washington to deal with the problems he conveniently left hanging when he flew off to Denmark to socialize with the International Olympic Committee in his futile attempt to persuade them to choose Chicago for the 2016 Olympic Games.

The depth of Mr. Obama’s clout with various movers and shakers of the international elite was clearly revealed when Chicago was eliminated from Olympic contention during the very first round of deliberation. Apparently, Mr. Obama’s persuasive abilities, along with those of his wife Michelle and their traveling companions Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan and Chicago's Mayor Richard J. Daley II, failed to carry sufficient weight with the Olympic Committee to persuade them to choose The Windy City as their choice for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Prior to the selection of Rio for the 2016 games, Michelle Obama had made a noteworthy comment regarding the “sacrifices” she was making for the United States on her journey to Denmark, where she spent time discussing what one can only guess at with Queen Margrethe II. Amazing! Her own private jet, Oprah Winfrey as her traveling companion, the world press at her heels, then meeting the Queen of Denmark, and all paid for at taxpayer expense..... the 'sacrifices' Michelle makes for the people of the United States might make one weep!

Critics of this tax payer paid jaunt for naught talked of the cost of sending not just one plane (the President’s 747 jet) but two (Michelle’s), as well as the cost of security and that of their not inconsiderable entourage, to convince the Olympic Committee to grant Chicago this plum prize for which their cronies were no doubt awaiting to juice the sluices of even further civic corruption back in Chi town. But alas, it was not to be.

Despite President Obama’s faded dream of leading the parade of festivities from his Chicago Hyde Park home to the Olympic Stadium in 2016, Mr. Obama is slowly learning that being a political “rock star” as perceived by the general public does not carry the same weight with world leaders, who see thru his tissue thin resume’ and his lack of real world experience, and have judged him accordingly.

Of course, there is no doubt former President Jimmy Carter, if one could ask him, would have a ready answer as to why President Obama failed in his task of securing the 2016 Olympic games for Chicago when dealing with the International Olympic Committee.

Perhaps you already know the reason as well. It’s the reason we will be hearing repeated as a mantra in the coming months and years ahead for every failure of policy and leadership Mr. Obama will endure during his ignominious slide down the toilet bowl of diminishing public approval: it’s racism, pure and simple.

For there can be no other reason anyone would oppose The Great Obama’s vision and silver tongue other than a visceral aversion to his skin color.

Perhaps someone should tell all those prejudiced world leaders that they are only half right.
