Barack Obama fails to make the case for Chicago to the IOC in Copenhagen

Barack Obama fails to make the case for Chicago to the IOC in Copenhagen

The failure of Chicago to land the 2016 Olympics would still have been noteworthy even if the President hadn’t personally pushed for its acceptance in Denmark, especially since that is his adopted home.  It is definitely not just a setback for Chicago now, but an embarrassment for the whole country with Obama’s decision to put the prestige of the Presidency on the line for an event that should have been adequately represented by others.  This decision in Denmark is going to not be the last time this happens.  It is a harbinger of things to come for the Obama presidency and for America.
