This week Rush Limbaugh got his ultimate wish - Barack Obama Failed! Let the Trumpets Sound and Horns Blair - Huzzah! But you know what else happened? America Failed too.
This is the true face of who these people are - petty, vindictive and apparently really into a "Socialist" country like Brazil. YAY SOCIALISM!!
We haven't seen such inappropriate celebration since dozens of Black Kids Lept up in elation at the reading of the Firxt OJ Verdict exactly 14 Years ago TODAY!
Anybody remember that? Anyone remember the Outrage? I think a lot of people still do - and it might even be argued that at least *some* of the Backlash against Barack, and against those who benefit from the so-called "Race Card" - helped fueled yesterdays reaction.
Blacks Cheered and Whites Raged!!
To many of them Obama is just another "Black (Kenyan) Guy who Got Away with It (Winning the Presidency)", y'know - like OJ got away with it, for awhile. We may still be experiencing the slow burn of the "White Riot" against Black Priviledge.
Or of course, they simply hate Democrats like the White-Hot Core of a Supernova!
Oh - but wait, there is some argument that America's Failure in this doomed Olympic endeaver may actually have been - George W. Bush's Fault.
In the official question-and-answer session following the Chicago presentation, Syed Shahid Ali, an I.O.C. member from Pakistan, asked the toughest question. He wondered how smooth it would be for foreigners to enter the United States for the Games because doing so can sometimes, he said, be “a rather harrowing experience.”
A “harrowing experience” may be an understatement. Immediately after 9/11, the Bush Administration began requiring fingerprints and photographs of tourists from all but 28 countries entering the US. President Bush required that all foreigners register online within three days of travel. Thirty-five (mostly European) countries now participate in the US Visa Waiver program, however tourists from the rest of the world still have to jump through the following hurdles:
* Pay hefty visa processing and issuance fees.
* Undergo an interview by a visa officer at the US Embassy.
* Provide evidence which shows the purpose of the trip, intent to depart the United States, and arrangements made to cover the costs of the trip may be provided.
* Present convincing evidence that an interested person will provide financial support if the applicant does not have sufficient funds to support him or herself.
The idea that America has become more onerous to foreign travelers (and their economy boosting dollars) than Communist China was just last year - should be a daunting thought.
But then again maybe that's unfair to pin all of this on Bush, the No Fly Lists, shoe removals and dumping of beverages before the inevitable wanding and question - many countries that have experienced terrorism have upped their security requirements and tightening their Visa requirements.
Maybe it's not all Georgie's fault - it's Mitt Romney's.
The scandalous behavior of IOC members and Salt Lake City Olympic bidders in the 1990s triggered reform that effectively banned the gifts and favors. The reform effort also made it difficult to apply legitimate politicking to the bidding process. This not only hog-tied the savvy political operatives in Chicago, it also minimized the role of President Obama, the Olympic bidder-in-chief.
The tough bidding rules established after the Salt Lake City scandal made it impossible to conduct even the most fundamental political campaign. IOC members are not permitted to visit bidding cities and even meet with the bidders, except under very limited and controlled circumstances.
The rampant glad-handing and corruption of process that led to the Salt Lake City Olympics may have tainted the waters for America, and for our ability to use similar tactics in the future.
Isn't this Blame Game Fun?
Maybe we all should have jumped up and Cheered that Bush Lost Us Another One - on top of the Two Wars he failed to Win, the failure of his Administration at anticipating, stopping or capturing the Al Qeada Leadership, the skyrocketing deficit and broken American Economy.
Yeah - We're #1 (in National Debt and Unemployment!)
Cue the Streamers!!!
None of this should be a surprise, as the Lord-God-King-Bufu of the Con-Americans already announced this is what he wanted.
It doesn't matter to Rush that Obama didn't take over the Banks, the Car Companies and the Mortgage Companies - GEOEGE W. BUSH DID - or that beside the fact neither of them really had a viable choice since all those agencies utterly failed as a result of unregulated crony capitalistic greed, that none of those corporate entities could ever be deemed "The Middle Class".
Down with CHICAGO! Down With CHRYSLER! DOWN WITH CITIBANK! DOWN WITH FORD! Down with - America!
Yeah, good times.
Rush still wants Obama - and hence the Banks, the Car Companies and the Mortgage Companies - To Fail because that's what's "Good" for America. And when they all go down - he and the rest of the cons will Cheer! YAY - Up Yours OBAMA!
Then again, maybe we just plain lost the Olympics not just a city, not just a country- but An Entire CONTINENT that has never before hosted an Olympic games while the U.S. has hosted at 8 Times already (Los Angeles Twice, Salt Lake City, Lake Placid Twice, Atlanta, Squaw Valley & St Louis) so granting us our Ninth Olympics versus South America First is a pretty tough argument to beat.
We've had our turn, over and over again - now it time for someone else to shine.
But instead of being gracious in defeat we have this...
Not exactly "Country First" is it? Why do the CONS Hate America so?
