For unexplainable reasons, the International Olympic Committee rejected Chicago as an Olympic site despite Barack Obama's repeated assertions that the United States is an arrogant, war-mongering, environment-destroying country, and Michelle Obama's heartfelt speech about her father's battle with multiple sclerosis in Chicago (and really, doesn't that just scream "Olympic fun" to you?).
Assuming that the president doesn't like to take such a spectacular pratfall in public, Hope n' Change wonders just what sort of backroom pressures were brought to bear by Chicago dealmakers to force Obama to travel to Copenhagen to act as a salesman? But at least there's a "teachable moment" here: when the outcome is really important...send more troops.
