Let’s see: In Chicago, Obama promised during his campaign that he would bring the Olympics to Chicago.
Then, he makes history by actually stumping in Europe for the Olympics to be brought to Chicago. Our president goes overseas to do a sales pitch.
Then, the First Lady thanks people for their sacrifice in trying to bring “this” all together. What sacrifice? Going to Europe for a mini-holiday? Or being in Europe, listening to the First Family hustle and pitch?
Then — Hola, Bom dias, Rio de Janeiro!
I don’t know, but I am thinking this is a bit embarassing. Just a wild guess, but I believe the Obamas’ visit did absolutely nothing for Chicago — it just tested the patience of the Olympic committee, and engendered many smirks and snickers in Europe.
What do you think?
