Libertarians and Conservatives Celebrate Loss of America's Olympic Bid

This is yet another spin by conservatives and libertarians to make America's bid for the Olympics to be in Chicago (thus in America) into something all about President Obama so they can direct their hatred of him at it.

As this video points out, President Bush also supported America and the city of Chicago in their bid for the 2016 Olympics. But now as President Obama went to Copenhagen to make their bid (as most country's leaders do) and Chicago received few votes, conservatives are framing this as being a rejection of Obama himself and celebrating the loss, which is really a loss for America.

This is yet another example of conservatives and libertarians showing their lack of concern for their fellow Americans and lack of desire for relief from the real problems in this country, and instead collectively mold themselves into a sick, nationalist version of Captain Ahab who will stop at nothing to get their whale (Obama), regardless of how obsessed, insane, or destructive they become.
