Ok so for all you wingnuts who have spent the last ten months whining about how President Obama is a narcissistic, American hating socialist who’s only interested in promoting himself, his cronies and in broadening his constituency by creating more poor people through progressive taxation, (something that you cynically refer to as wealth redistribution), here’s some hope and change for ya! Finally!
While in Copenhagen, marketing his Olympic vision for his adopted city of Utopian Diversity, Chicago, the President, who you Neanderthals say was bowed and kowtowed to despots, blamed America for everything under the sun, (yes, warming is caused by America, not the Sun), and has apologized on our behalf for all our past sins, (like saving the world from totalitarianism twice in one century), the President FINALLY had some praise for his country, (sort of):
At the beginning of this new century, the nation that has been shaped by people from around the world wants a chance to inspire it once more; to ignite the spirit of possibility at the heart of the Olympic and Paralympic movement in a new generation; to offer a stage worthy of the extraordinary talent and dynamism offered by nations joined together – to host games that unite us in noble competition and shared celebration of our limitless potential as a people.
And so I urge you to choose Chicago. I urge you to choose America. And if you do; if we walk this path together; then I promise you this: the city of Chicago and the United States of America will make the world proud. Thank you.
Ok, so his remarks were mostly about him and his “struggle” to rise from his humble beginings to become the embodiment of the American Dream (so he could change it). And, about how when he came to Chicago he finally felt at home in the infamously corrupt machine politics and “visionaries”, (like Ayres and Rev. Right.)
See? At least the president said some nice things about America for a change. Let’s hope he keeps it up.
