So Oprah, Michelle Obama, and President Obama all went to Denmark (with the President and his wife on separate jets) to make a pitch for the 2016 Olympics to be in Obama’s hometown, Chicago.
According to Michelle, it was a great “sacrifice” for her to travel to Europe with her friend Oprah on taxpayer dollars to make the pitch for Chicago. (Oh, yes, quite a sacrifice…)
Having the Olympics in Chicago would financially aide a few and harm the rest, as well as bring terrorist threats and other violence to Chicago. So, overall, a generally bad idea. But apparently we need not worry about this, because President Obama does not hold the power to bring about such results.
By personally pitching for the Olympics for his hometown and failing and losing in the first round, Obama has revealed that he has little if any power on the international stage.
