    Good, I like the IOC's decision. By default, it was Rio turn in 2016.
    US hosted the games too many times.
    We just had Beijing in Asia and the next game will in London 2012.
    This is another reason to go visit Brazil. icon_cool.gif

    Good for them. South America has never had an Olympics before, I think. I'd love to visit Rio sometime.

    Amazing picture.

    Chicago is a great city - my favorite to visit on business - but congrats to the IOC for not caving in to the OhBummers. Maybe more tax cheats, neo-Marxists, or community organizers would have helped.

    This morning a media babe, probably from CNN, was swooning about how Obambi's "rock star" presence seemed to make Chicago a shoe-in.

    Now she looks like just another pinhead Obomba pompom girl, as do some on this site.

    Obambi's

    Obomba


    Wow, how long were you hanging on to those? I am sure that you are waiting for another chance to use one of your corny "witty" Obama jabs.

    Fever-

    Let me see here losing the bid of the games. Getting Iran to open up the plants to inspectors....well let me. I think I'll got with latter.

    Idiot!

    I approve. They usually show up with many athletes competing so good for Brazil. And PBJ....nice picture posting. Also, Timberoo, that's the spirit. I'm sure Peter Allen and Hugh Jackman would agree. Thanks for the clip. Rio 2016! icon_biggrin.gif

    Seconded! I think Rio's a much better choice. About time Latin America got the games.

    Liberals have trouble staying on topic or avoiding personal attacks on RJ members.

    When another Hitler made concessions to a Chamberlain, the latter was cheered. Chamberlain and those who cheered were idiots.

    Ahmandinejad scoffed at Obambi’s silly offer to talk unconditionally. He fired missiles to mock Obambi’s announcement to the G20 that (surprise) Iran was misbehaving again.

    This inspector deal will probably be a replay of the Saddam Hussein inspector games. Only liberals are too brainless to see Ahmandinejad as the Hitler of the middle east.

    If we just get rid of Bush and elect Obambi, silver-tongued speaker of liberal platitudes with no military or executive experience, the world will love us. That is real idiocy.

    Buffhunk64 saidJust wondering if the Chicago 2016 Olympic committee will reimburse the U.S. taxpayers for the president's 13 hour trip. Lots of people staff that plane and seems that President Obama really did not need to make this trip after all. The trip was for the benefit of Chicago...not me. My tax money should not go toward paying for the trip.


    Repost much? See my answer in the OTHER forum where you posted the same mindless garbage. If you really think the Olympics would have only helped Chicago, you have utterly no sense of how the economy works or of the economical magnitude of the Olympic Games.

    God, do conservatives TRY to sound this dumb, or is it just natural to them? The world DID gain a new respect for the U.S. thanks to the fact that our president now has a brain, not to mention some sense of diplomacy--rather than believing God gave America the biggest dick in the world just so it could piss on every one else.

    Obama is handling the situation with Iran the way a reasonable, intelligent leader would: By engaging the rest of the world, pushing for diplomacy and reasonable discussion with Iran, and most of all trying to minimize hostility. The Bush admin's refusal to engage Iran and N. Korea and its whole "do what we say or we'll bomb your ass" attitude did nothing but agitate already hostile leaders, further endangering the U.S. and the rest of the world.

    Thank God nimrods like you aren't in Washington (any more), or else the nuclear holocaust would be just around the corner.

    I can give Obama that much... he does have a brain but has no balls. Street smarts vs. Book smarts... being president is a fine balance between these too. Just one thing to think about and remember when it comes to unilateral talks with any one rogue nation... Clinton tried the same thing with North Korea and give them aid what not.... they lied and kept going foward with their nuke program. Maybe this will be different however as history has shown once over with someone that meet that street and brains (certinally balls) to be president aka Clinton... doesnt usually work out as they planned.

    I think the decision was great, it's going to be one big party, and everyone knows they definately can throw a party down there.

    Typical, another guy on this site rants about something off topic and then pulls out his "big boy" insults to rile people up. Please... just, stop talking.
    Btw, I hope I'm not the only one that noticed... if Chamberlain and those who cheered for him were idiots, by proxy I'm pretty sure that that statement makes it clear that you are in favor of Hitler's ideals. You're awesome *shakes head no*.

    I would have loved to see the Olympics come here within 3 hours of me, but alas, SA does deserve it's chance.
