First of all Chicago did not fail. Obamas failed. They made this about themselves. Michelle Obama and her wonderful husband "who knows a little something about change" own this monumental failure.
Here is the real reason why Chicago's Olympic Bid Failed:
It is all about me Michelle Obama, me First Lady, me Chicagoan, my daughters, my dad, my husband.
Really Michelle, why should we vote for Chicago again?
This is supposed to be a pitch and she was supposed to tell them what is in it for the IOC and the rest of the world!
Instead she kept saying me, me, me and my daughters, may dad and my husband.
To add insult to injury, this is what she said:
Chicago's vision for the Olympic and Paralympic Movement is about so more than what we can offer the Games -- it's about what the Games can offer all of us. It's about inspiring this generation, and building a lasting legacy for the next. It's about our responsibility as Americans not just to put on great Games, but to use these Games as a vehicle to bring us together; to usher in a new era of international engagement; and to give us hope; and to change lives all over the world.
WTF? What the hell does this mean? It is all about her and her husband and she takes a swipe at her own country in the process.
No wonder they eliminated Chicago in the first round. I am surprised that they did not stand up and say "forget it" right after this speech.
Michelle Obama's speech was also a tall tale as Michelle Malkin explains.
