He didn't get elected to Emperor of the Universe In Charge of Space and Time and Luck.
As excited as I am about Obama's election, I think we need to be realistic about what the guy can do. He didn't get elected to Emperor of the Universe In Charge of Space and Time and Luck.
Remember, for a while it was a given that New York City would receive the 2012 games.
FWIW, the park in which the city would build the Olympic stadium is about 4 blocks west of Obama's house in Chicago. I have no idea what he thinks about the thing, but a Chicago Olympics would be very literally close to home for him.
I really hope Chicago doesn't get the Olympics. Traffic's bad enough already.
That's why the slogan was "Hope" and not "Confidence".
I don't remember this. The NYC effort was mostly smoke and mirrors, contingent on all sorts of things that never came to pass.
observers of Olympic trends were saying that New York was all but unbeatable simply due to the Sympathy/"Honor" vote.
Coulda fooled me.
Hey, a useless, wiseass drive-by post from one of the non-existent, oppressed BTF rightwingers. Someone for flournoy to consider not hating.
He's stealing my schtick. I hate him.
"Alderman" is someone's name? Perhaps a superhero, born when an ordinary alderman was bitten by a radioactive Vrdolyak.
