To all the conservatives rejoicing that the Olympics are not coming to Chicago in 2016: Get a clue. Those of you laughing at Obama for his failure to close the deal in Copenhagan are just as guilty as the idiots who wanted to see us fail in Iraq purely because of their hatred of George Bush.
Bottom line - let's put America first. Party and ideological affiliation comes in a distant second. Bringing the Olympics to Chicago would have been a great chance to show the world a first class American city with a spectacular waterfront skyline, world class universities, an industrious populace, as well as the gateway to America's midwest breadbasket.
Here's hoping that the pundits and hacks celebrating Obama's "failure" come to the sober recognition that what's bad for Obama politically is not necessarily good for America.
