    Exclamation !!!!!!!!!Obama Rejected by IOC!!!!!!!!!

    O NO!! CHICAGO LOSES 2016 OLYMPICSCOPENHAGEN, Denmark (CBS) ― Click to enlarge1 of 1
    A stunned crowd stares at monitors in Daley Plaza after Chicago was eliminated from the bid for the 2016 Olympics.

    Despite four years, millions of dollars in planning and a last-ditch pitch from President Obama, the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid ultimately fell short.

    The City of Chicago was eliminated in the first round of voting, before any host city was selected.

    An expert called it the "biggest shock in IOC history."

    A disappointed USOC President Larry Probst left the venue and refused to comment, saying the Chicago delegation would respond later.

    Supporters gathered in Chicago were equally shocked. Many left the rally in Daley Plaza tears.

    Tokyo was also eliminated in the first round.

    Even the president's star billing wasn't enough to put Chicago over the top in what some experts said was the tightest race for the Games in its history.

    "The President did everything he could to bring the Olympics to our country and we're obviously disappointed that we didn't win them," said White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton.

    The contest lasted four years and endured several stumbling blocks. But many believed that when President Barack Obama elected to go to Copenhagen to deliver the closing remarks of Chicago's final presentation, the move would seal the deal to send the games to Chicago.

    But the president's pitch, along with the star power of First Lady Michelle Obama and TV queen Oprah Winfrey, couldn't sway enough votes.

    In the short term, CBS 2 Mike Flannery reports that the Chicago defeated leaves Obama politically wounded by taking on a fight that he really didn't have to take.

    The vote is also a stinging defeat for Mayor Daley, who has been used to getting what he wants. Although opponents now no longer have the Olympics, and the potential for cost overruns and mismanagement, as a campaign issue.

    So you would rather see the Olympics go elsewhere as an affront to the politician you despise, rather than come to this country with all the prestige, economic benefits and athletic opportunities it entails for our country and our aspiring athletes?

    What bunch of lame-butt, self-centered, narrow-minded windbags you people are!

    Yes I would love to see the Olympics come to Chicago seeing as how the city is just about broke. They need it so they can tax the citizens some more and yes it is great to see the little dictator brought down a notch or too. Once again it is great to see what a judgmental name calling "nice"guy you are Half Cocked and locked. I know your mother would be proud of you.

    Yes. That's exactly right. I'd also rather have our commander in chief put half as much emphasis on a war strategy for Afghanistan as he does to promote events in HIS OWN HOMETOWN of Chicago for HIS OWN (and his cronies') financial gain, or his retarded, lameass socialist healthcare project.

    In short - yes, I love to see bHo LOSE. I hope he loses again REAL soon... and yes, I'll gloat then too.

    Another troll. I've noticed jwtollet (our other resident troll) hasn't been around in lately... Just when we thought we got rid of one, another shows up. This one appears to be worse than JW, as he apparently has resorted to name calling. I have already deduced that he is an ObamaLover.
