  1. why are you comparing some ancient ruin to Reno?
  2. Cant imagine any interest, what was their alpine situation? I though I remembered reading they had a pretty lame mountain/geography but I could be wrong.
  3. I think Madrid is the favorite. Tokyo offers stability but still feels too soon for another monster Asian Summer games. Doha would be spectacular and spectacularly controversial, but money may talk. Baku.....yuk....sorry, I'm American so you can blame it on that. Istanbul...too many ties to teetering and volatile neighbors..again...I'm American sorry. Rome...goodbye.
  4. It's sad that you said: "It is really sad because I do not believe in America anymore, I want to but can't." It's JUST politics....it's not better or worse than before no matter what you hear EVERY cycle. It's the same as always. That's why I'm not sure why anyone takes it personally, politicians don't, so why should you. They only reason I said anything is for balance because most jabs here are at conservative issues. I believe in America so that is something we disagree on.
  5. I think part of the problem is people are not reading between the lines and do not fully realize that Obama had absolutely no opposition for 2 year had every oportunitu to live up to his hype and PROVE he was the mesia. During his first TWO year Mr Obama had TOTAL and COMPLETE CONTROL of Government, with majorities in the House of Representatives AND The Senate. That mean he had TWO YEARS to enact ANYTHING THEY WANTED to resolve problems. What did he do? Obamacare only, what about the economy? He was distracted by his pet project and neglected or ignored the economy. If he could do any bit of the things he said he would this was his opportunity, but he didn't know what to do. The critical last 2 year of George Bush, Democrats were in control and BOTH the House and Senate, this was not a BUSH only Government but TOTAL Democratic Congress during the most critical TWO year that lead up to the OBAMA CONTROL era. Now we are here, Obama was unable to lift the economy with ideas or experience. His myriad of failed administrative appointees and staff are never discussed but swept away into oblivion (or Chicago politics), he is a failed manager. We have limped back over government overreach and inexperience to a fragile point of stagnant growth with little respect round the world. This administration is seen as weak, and stumbling here and abroad. Dependency on Government has increased 25% under what some call the food stamp president. What was the last time anything like that happened????????? The CARTER era.
  6. I just would like the 30 or 40 people from around the world the read these forums to know that there is incredible discontent with the performance of the current president. There is a feeling that he fooled the world and particularly the US (and a LOT of young people) into believing a dream about HOPE and CHANGE that turned out not surprisingly to be a trendy tag line that caught fire and fizzled to nothing but politics as usual. This president and the democratic party held TOTAL control of government for 2 year before the 2010 mid term elections when the Republican party made record gains to re-capture control of the Senate, and came VERY close to regaining control of the House of Representatives, I think only by 1 or 2 members. During the 2 years of TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL Mr Obama had EVERY opportunity to accomplish anything he and the democratic representatives wanted and to enact any program of reform, rebuilding, re-whatever to make the HOPE and CHANGE happen. 2 FULL YEARS OF TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL. For that we have Obamacare and 26 or 28 states are suing the government to overturn, it will go to the supreme court this summer and should an explosive element to what will already be a nuclear thermal campaign. We hired an inexperienced celebrity candidate with a compelling story that sold everywhere for a while, he was the Kim Kardashian of political fluff and now he just seems unhappy to have what he wanted. This guys is FAMOUS now around town for NOT liking or wanting to interact with people. He is more and more isolated form anyone except his closest advisers, he is sheltered and rolled out for B/S speeches and other engagements that he is expected to attend but is fully unavailable for meetings, cooperation, communication and interaction that EVERY other president has taken part in as a minimum. Something is wrong with this guy and nothing is getting done.
  7. ...at least we can be relieved that Mr Obama will never preside over any games as president. Hmmmm why would you be sooooooooo against Romney, I think a lot of liberals will find him to be more left sensitive than any other republican out there, and this is something he is often criticized for. It's funny watching the right criticize him for being too left and the left criticizing him for being to right, I think he is just about where he needs to be to govern a divided country.
  8. Jindle is an OK manager but he is AWFUL on camera, which we all found out. These guys are hardly novelty, Jindel was also propped up because of his skin color, and that's NEVER a good idea. The problem now for democrats is the NEW republicans are FANTASTIC in leading and selling their message. OMG Rubio, Christy either would KILL Obama in a head to head, and combined with Mitt it's some great possibilities for a powerful ticket. Especially if Biden is still there....I mean come on......even Sarah Palin ate his lunch last time in the debates, can only imagine Biden against one of these guys....it's gonna be fantastic! I remember watching the Obamas in Copenhagen in 2009 thinking....if they can help win the Olympics for Chicago, I'm gonna try really hard to like them. Well all I remember is Big Fat Oprah and Michelle making a big fuss getting to the Opra, and him giving a totally HORRIBLE stiff speech full of bologna that he seemed never to have seen before that night. His charm fell so flat it was like OH **** these IOC-ers and Eurocrats are not buying this trash like the American public did last year......we are F*cked! And there you have it. Then there's Mitt! So how did he handle the his chance at the Olympics hmmmmmmmm? And there you have it. Obama = FAIL Mitt = SUCCESS So if you want to criticize Mitt for his success, I'm sure Al Sharpton would be happy to interview you on his msnbc show. I prefer to criticize Obama for his FAILURES than Mitt for his SUCCESS!
  9. Does anyone think Obama will dump Biden? I mean talk about sticking your foot in your mouth. If a republican made the remarks about race that Biden has they would be chased out of office by liberals. I think it's his only chance, maybe with Hillary. The republican candidate (Romney) will have so many amazing young exciting VP candidates to choose from but it's gotta be Rubio. Still would love to see Condoleezza Rice as VP, that would certainly help squelch the racial overtones the Obama gang will likely employ as they did toward the Clinton's.
  10. The first interview with "Michael Jackson's" interviewer is a total farce. His liberal guest is obviously there for no other reason than to bash Romney for the left for any reason, as is the standard for the entire msnbc network, rightfully no one watches msnbc. I admit I flip on Maddow for lesbian-slanted comedy relief now and again. I guess from your signature and the photo-shoped children you posted, you may be an Obamacrat. I'm an independent voter and I will vote for any person running against Obama. I realize this is a left leaning forum but I hope people realize how disingenuous this president has been, these are difficult days and having a inexperienced celebrity in the White House is degrading for the country.
  11. Perhaps you can explain the funny part.
  12. Madrid looks better to me than the rest ,no reason why.
  13. Oh god yes, please do post more "cloud" pics of Rio, if there's anything that may fascinate us it's one more "cloud" picture of Rio.
  14. every time this thread "Support Annecy" comes to the top I have to laugh......7 time. I read all the arrogant comments (yes "arrogant") from Tulsa and some other French supporters for the last couple months and the big 7 votes is a bit of karma I guess. Now all the whining here is being done in French........way to solidify the stereotype guys.
  15. This whole wrap sponsor bit is starting to sound odd. I hope there is NO sponsor identification permitted, or this could be the degradation of another Olympic tradition.
  16. Wow there are a LOT of empty seats not just aside the tinny flame wad, but all over above and on both sides. Also how unorganized could the choreography possibly be!!! It looks like they just waltzed out there without a plan, the opposite of Beijing (not that that's a fair comparison but come on)! The real thing better be good, but I get the feeling the 2016 host kinda feels like the hard part is over.
  17. Without American military strength, and enduring efforts to promote freedom and peace, where would the world be now? Had we shown weakness our country would probably not exist now, which likely would please some of you. God knows what Europe would be, certainly not free and independent. Unfortunately now evil regimes have learned they will loose in a fist to fist fight with the US, so they have infiltrated free and capitalist societies, and particularly in Europe and the US they are using our systems against us. This is why it's so frustrating to hear some from the free world bitching about the US, this is playing into the hands of those that will destroy you at the first viable opportunity. Our court systems and laws are being used against us, it's more and more difficult to defend against infiltration and attack, and our "friends" show weakness in resolve with little support at the slightest crossroads to enduring freedom. For the record, we believe in freedom and independent rights of all nations, and we will continue to fight for our freedom, and all nations that want freedom and fairness for the world. We will make mistakes, we will continue to learn, and we will continue to lead. We are young, we are successful, we are proud, and we care about the world. We will endure the criticism, and continue to help those who criticize us when they are in need, we are forgiving and we believe in the future.
  18. At least there is something interesting in the book about the not-so-memorable games. This guy is an idiot to have used the language he did int he book. I wonder if it was his lame attempt to put something interesting or controversial in the book. But agreed, it's over, really seems like it never happened even, move on. Vancouver is the only city I know that seemed better before it hosted...not sure why....I think maybe it goes to the head of the people and they become a little fanatical and self-centered, which is the opposite of how I used to see Vancouverites. Plus the look of the games came up SHORT, and the city (always one of my favorite looking cities) didn't "wear" the look well. -not sure f that's how you say Vancouverites??
  19. Before Hiroshima should host, Honolulu should host, if you want to commemorate a bunch of negative crap. Just because Japan got stopped in it's tracks by the US, don't forget their original destructive and evil intentions. They were dishonorable in their acts that brought about the bombings, and there is no reason to gloss over their disgraceful past with an Olympic award.
  20. That is one ugly monster, I guess Rio isn't known for it's architecture and won't be anytime soon. Maybe the Orbit tower should be moved to Rio after 2012, it could be on an island like that hideous fantasy waterfall structure.
  21. I think it's brilliant, I love everything about it. What was the purpose of that slab to the right?
