So here's my question to Limbaugh/Beck/Hannity/Boehner/Steele and the rest of the Republican leadership/punditocracy:
Why do you hate America?
As reported earlier today, Chicago lost out on it's bid for the 2016 Olympics, even after The First Lady and President Obama travelled to Copenhagen to make an impassioned plea for their home city.
From Eric Erickson, who runs Red State, one of the largest conservative blogs on the internet:
Hahahahaha.I thought the world would love us more now that Bush was gone.I thought if we whored ourselves out to our enemies, great things would happen.Apparently not.So Obama’s pimped us to every two bit thug and dictator in the world, made promises to half the Olympic committee, and they did not even kiss him.So much for improving America’s standing in the world, Barry O.Maybe now perhaps we can hope he will mature a bit on the issues of foreign affairs. But I doubt it.BTW, Dear Barack Obama, you are no Billy Mays.
And here are some really choice comments from Erickson's readers:
- this is actually such a good thingif they *had* chosen Chicago, it would have SO gone to his already-enormous head and given him more excuse to think himself kingBwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah.This puts a huge grin on my face for the rest of the day. Will be interested to see how the Obamas address this huge loss of face on both their parts. Guess the IOC was immune to charms of the First Grizzly and her toned arms plus the frozen rictus grin of her husband.Good on ya, IOC, you finally did something I can applaud you for!A good sign! Now.. as long as the rest of what he’s been up to fails we might remain a soverign nation…. but there is so much going on, that is getting more doubtful by the day.I would just like to say to Mr. Obama… You idiot! You really don’t comprehend the consequences of your actions, or in the case of war, you INACTIONS. You amateur, man-child traitor.Obama’s Chicago thugs, ACORN, the SEIU were all unable to pull his butt out of the fire on this one. Apparently the rest of the world isn’t impressed by his nose-in-the-air aura.“Together we can”? No, Barry. YOU FAIL.I’ll bet Sarkozy and Bibi are having a cold one right now, relishing the sweet smell of Obama defeat. I know I will be later today.So now how will Valerie Jarrett get money to tear down her slums and rebuild? And, afrter all the sacrifice Michelle and Oprah put themselves through to burn over a million bucks in fuel, probably shopped till she dropped, and stayed in the lap of luxury. What nerve the IOC committee had in not bowing to the One’s bribes.Barack Hussein Obama- Boo Boo BooLike Rush just said, after Obama went all over the world appologizing for America, why would anyone want to come to such a bad country.
So I ask again. Why, Republicans, do you hate America? Why are you CELEBRATING the fact that our country lost out on tens of billions in economic stimulus?
What the hell is wrong with you?
