The 2016 Olympics went to Rio, Brazil......conservatives celebrate America's loss.
Consider the glee by America's new enemies.....
Beck: "Oh, it's so sweet" that Chicago's bid failed; "savor this moment."
Breitbart website: "It is kind of like the world community saying to President Obama, 'Not only no, but Hell No.' "
Limbaugh: For those "upset that I sound gleeful -- I am. I don't deny it. I'm happy."
Drudge: "The ego has landed. World rejects Obama: Chicago out in first round."
RedState.com's Erickson: "World rejects Barack Obama. ... Hahahahaha."
Soon after news broke that the International Olympic Committee had rejected Chicago's bid to host the 2016 Olympics, which President Obama had personally lobbied for, Weekly Standard blogger John McCormack published a celebratory post on the magazine's blog, titled "Chicago Loses! Chicago Loses!." McCormack wrote that "Cheers erupt at WEEKLY STANDARD world headquarters"
Malkin: "Goodbye, 'Yes We Can.' Hello, 'No, You Can't.' "
Honestly, I've never seen anything like this before. Cheering when America loses. Delighting in national defeat.
Take a moment to view the now-confirmed new enemies of America celebrating President Obama's failure to land the 2016 Olympic Games......share with me your feelings at what you see at the 1:20 mark.....
For those who would suggest that it's only the fake-news "entertainers", like the deranged Beck or the drug addict Rush who celebrated in America's loss......go read the Village's Jennifer Loven from the highly respected Associated Press.
Despite Obama's fabled charm and powers of persuasion, his in-person plea for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Games fell flat. It was a hugely embarrassing defeat. And taxpayers shelled out probably $1 million or more for the president, his wife and others to fly to Copenhagen and back to woo members of the International Olympic Committee.
The defeat could soon be a distant memory, and may never be more than a quixotic-blip trip. But if, for whatever reason, bigger losses start piling up in Obama's corner, his performance in this case could be regarded as emblematic.
That is Village-speak for Beck's, "Oh, it's so sweet."
To make matters worse, the Knee Padded Loven ( I've written about her before) goes on in this morning's article to tell readers that losing out on this very legitimate attempt by an American president lobbying for what surely would be a jobs and income producer for the United States of America during a very stingy recession, "recalls a strain of criticism that has been gaining ground on him."
What "strain of criticism"?
Un-f*cking-believably...."He's trying to do too much at once." " He doesn't have what it takes to close a deal." "He is a celebrity, for sure, but is that always a good thing?...some perceive Obama as arrogantly relying too much on his celebrity status and not enough on the nitty-gritty work of winning votes." "He's too casual with the use of his own time." "He's junior varsity-league, still learning on the job. Will Obama do as poorly predicting how health-care votes are leaning in Congress, and make similarly ill-fated strategic decisions?"
Truly.....this bizarre rendering by wingnuts and Villagers alike is a national WTF moment. We've entered brand new bizarro territory. A media so corrupt and rotted, so challenged by an intelligent and articulate president who doesn't spend most of his time on vacation choking on pretzels while watching footall, or pretending to clear brush in pathetically staged photo-op sessions for the rubes......is now, just like Limbaugh and Beck and the TeaBagging nuts.....celebrating American losses.
As Glenn Greenwald pointed out the other day.....in one f*cking day Obama made more progress with the troubling national leaders of Iran than George W. Bush made in 8 years of "axis-of-evil" threats. But no celebrations by KneePadding KnobPolishers over such monumental feats in U.S.-Iranian relations. Hardly a mention.
About a third of voting America, those who are ardent fans of Bill-o, Sean, Rush, Glenny and the rest of America's modern-day Our Gang Comedy Clowns, have now been born-again into full-fledged enemies of America. Outrageously, these new American enemies have blurred the lines between Obama failing and America failing....and are now rooting openly for both.
It didn't have to be this way.
Those who are now celebrating America's loss, America's defeat, used to screech about wearing lapel flag pins and placing one's hand over one's heart when singing the National Anthem. These same moronically stupid screechers used to raise oh-so-serious questions whether or not a black man with an odd name was "patriotic enough."
Now those same simple-minded, dumbasses are celebrating American defeat.
P.S. If you don't think the conservative rubes are being manipulated, take a look at how our nation's self-declared Enemy-in-Chief, Glenn Beck, produces all those crocodile tears....
