For the first time ever, a U.S. President will get involved in lobbying for a city to host the Olympics. Barack Obama will now go to Copenhagen, Denmark to pitch Chicago to the International Olympic Committee.

Not as if the President didn’t have enough to do, nightly appearances on Jay Leno, Letterman and other assorted comedic endeavors. Now the Commander and Chief wants to personally lobby for his hometown of Chicago, Illinois to host the 2016 Olympic Games.

Narcissism is the first word that comes to mind. He absolutely has to convince the Olympic Committee to hand Chicago the honor. I suppose simply because the city is associated with Barry himself. Maybe he’ll convince them that the city of Hope and Oprah needs to be the site for the 2016 Olympics.

This is of course the first time ever that a U.S. President has deemed it so important that he needs to handle it himself. No, not troop levels in Afghanistan, but revenue for the windy city. I smell political favor being paid back. Where’s Mayor Daley?

Now the lefty news outlets and blogs are spinning this colossal waste of time saying that if he’s successful he’ll get a political boost by “giving the country a new sense of national pride”. I thought we we’re all proud just because he was elected? Oh wait, that’s Michelle.

Speaking of Michelle, she was supposed to make the pitch in Copenhagen, but evidently it’s a matter of National security. The top dog himself has to make the pitch. Chicago is thought to be leading slightly over Rio de Janeiro, with Tokyo and Madrid in contention as well.

This is simply another public relations scheme on the part of the Obama Administration. He can’t stand the fact that his approval numbers have and still are tanking. Nobody wants his ridiculous healthcare scheme and people are beginning not to trust him. Why is that? Could it be that he uses the office of the President spending time with otherwise trivial matters? Nah, that would be something a person within the vast right wing conspiracy would say.

Obama lackey Valerie Jarrett said via the Politico:

“The Olympic spirit is about giving it your very best down to the finish line and not taking anything for granted. That’s what his presence in Copenhagen will demonstrate,” Jarrett said.

Oh gag! Obama is going because he can’t stand the thought of the 2016 Summer Olympics going to another city, when by all rights it should go to Chicago on principle. Remember what I said, narcissism.
