Often wrong…never in doubt.
Created because there is so much not to like about obama, his staff and regime.

Credit where credit is due: The leftist whining about George W. Bush being the cause of Chicago’s loss of the 2016 Olympics would be funny, were it not so pathetic and absurd.
Who do these liberal brainiacs think got Chicago on the ballot and into the Final Four?
Obama lost this one on his own. Mr. Bush got Chicago to the starting line. Not W’s fault that Chicago neither won, placed nor showed.

Math 101: In case you were not scoring at home during the obamas’ Billy Mays pitch for the Olympics, George Will was kind enough to do the calculations.
This from his latest column: “Both Obamas gave heartfelt speeches about … themselves. Although the working of the committee's mind is murky, it could reasonably have rejected Chicago's bid for the 2016 games on aesthetic grounds — unless narcissism has suddenly become an Olympic sport.
In the 41 sentences of her remarks, Michelle Obama used some form of the personal pronouns “I” or “me” 44 times. Her husband was, comparatively, a shrinking violet, using those pronouns only 26 times in 48 sentences.
Still, 70 times in 89 sentences was sufficient to convey the message that somehow their fascinating selves were what made, or should have made, Chicago's case compelling.”
