Ace of Spades brings back this oldie, but goodie clip when Chicago lost its bid for the Olympics.
Remember how Obama, Michelle and Oprah put pressure on Olympic officials to bring it to their home (sort of) town? It was in the bag, if you’ll recall. With that trio, who could refuse them? At that point O was the world’s savior who had received the Nobel Peace Prize shortly after becoming president. He was the one we were waiting for.
It didn’t quite work out that way, much to the chagrin and disbelief by CNN:
Maybe the Olympic committee was a little more savvy than the American voter and media.
