That was the Conservative group, "Americans for Prosperity" clapping as an AMERICAN city, Chicago didn't get the Olympics. That would have meant a lot of jobs not just for Chicago but the whole Great Lakes region. Americans for prosperity? I guess just not for America when it's led by Obama. Should any of us be clapping when an American city loses potential money and jobs? I guess the Republicans do. This is not a failure by Obama it's a Republican failure. I like what one of the few conservatives that I like, Joe Scarborough said about this:
Count me as one conservative who is disappointed that President Obama's hometown will not be hosting the 2016 Olympic Games.
The President was right to fly to Copenhagen to try to land the games, not for the sake of his city, but for the good of his country. The fact President Obama failed makes me respect him more for taking the chance, and the fact many right-wing figures opposed the President's mission shows just how narrow-minded partisanship makes us all.
