OBAMA FAILS... Chicago Nixed From Olympic Pick ...Update: CNN in Shock (Video) ...Update: Rio Gets Nod ...Update: It's Bush's Fault

(Photoshop: Michelle Malkin Reader Ben)

It's too bad ACORN doesn't work with the IOC...
EPIC FAIL-- Windy City Blown Over

It looks like he wasn't the one they'd been waiting for. His personal story could not win over the judges.

Chicago will not host the 2016 Olympic Games.
Chi-Town was eliminated in the first round of voting.

Drudge headlines- "The Ego Has Landed"

It's a good thing he's a democrat or the state-run media would have a field day with him.

But, President Obama did meet with his top Afghanistan Commander while in Denmark for 25 minutes aboard Air Force One.

Poor Barack. That flight back to DC won't be much fun. Maybe he'll focus on the record unemployment rate now.

UPDATE: CNN in utter disbelief after Chicago went down in the first round--

UPDATE 2: Axelrod spins the news-- Says Obama will go anywhere to promote the country... Except when he bashes it.

UPDATE 3: Rio De Janeiro gets the nod.
Contgratulations Brazil!

UPDATE 4: The Times Online piles on:
"Obama’s Olympic failure will only add to doubts about his presidency"


UPDATE 5: You knew this was coming-- It's Bush's fault.


The libs are in total meltdown after the Dream-Team was snubbed by the IOC in Denmark today.
And, of course, it's all Bush's fault.
CMR reported:

Senator Rowland Burris of Illinois, the Senator who was appointed to fill President Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat, blames George Bush for Chicago not getting the Olympics in 2016. Burris stated in an interview, shortly after the announcement, that the image of the U. S. has been so tarnished in the last 8 years that, even Barack Obama making an unprecedented pitch for the games could not overcome the hatred the world has for us as a result of George Bush. Wow! When will the Democrats in Congress ever get off this “Blame Bush” syndrome. Burris even went on to say that this is just another way Bush is now hurting Chicago. Yes blame Bush, don’t mind all the crime and corruption that has come out of Illinois over the last year. This “Blame Bush” strategy is getting pretty old.
Burris was not the only one.
Swimmer Rowdy Gaines also blamed Bush after the rejection.

Legal Insurrection has more on today's crazy Bush-bashing.
