Hate To Say I Told You So....


But, I told you so in regard to the Anointed One going to Copenhagen to try and persuade the International Olympic Committee to award the city of Chicago the 2016 Summer Olympics. President Obama even enlisted big names such as Oprah and the First Lady to help in this endeavor. Meanwhile, gang murders were making headlines in Chicago. I'm not saying that had any impact on the IOC final decision since I'm sure Rio has its share of gang murders also. But, you have to admit, it didn't help Chicago's case.

The impetus for awarding Rio de Janeiro the 2016 Olympics was due to South America never having an Olympics held on that continent. I think that was most likely the deciding factor. Another factor, was the even split among the public who wanted and did not want the Olympics in their city. But, all this aside, there was a lot of egg on the face of the President of the United States. He put his personal stamp on securing this bid for his home town of Chicago. He must have had reason to believe his efforts would prove fruitful. Why else would he risk such embarrassment if he did not believe that Chicago would get the Olympic bid? As it stands now, he let his infamous ego get in the way of his better judgement. The President got just what he deserved; a valuable lesson in humility.
