Chicago received a shocking first-round exit from the race to hold the 2016 Summer Games, becoming the first city eliminated when International Olympic Committee members cast votes in a secret ballot Friday.

Thank God.  Like we need one more distraction in America with threats all around us.  Recall http://www.nationalterroralert.com/updates/2009/05/12/5-men-convicted-in-plot-to-blow-up-chicagos-sears-tower/

“Five men were convicted(sic May 2009) Tuesday of plotting to join forces with al-Qaida to destroy Chicago’s Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in hopes of igniting an anti-government insurrection. The jury in Miami acquitted another member of the so-called “Liberty City Six” in the sixth day of deliberations. Two previous trials ended in mistrials when jurors could not agree on the men’s guilt or innocence”

“The violence in the schools became an international issue, and all the corruption, the rest of the world just sees us as Crook Town,” said Reyes, 59, currently unemployed, who bought his first TV two decades ago specifically to watch the Olympics.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/02/AR2009100200550.html?hpid=topnews

Maybe the IOC sees not just Chicago as corrupt, but all of America.  A plea for the  2012 Summer Games, New York City was also denied.

Obama’s appearance, the first by a sitting U.S. President at an IOC session, provoked huge interest from IOC members, even though they are used to being courted by major political figures.

Obama told the IOC: “I’ve come here today to urge you to choose Chicago for the same reason I chose Chicago nearly twenty-five years ago, the reason I fell in love with the city I still call home.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/olympics/6255238/Chicago-eliminated-from-2016-Olympics.html

Flag you Mr. President- in case you forgot you now live at:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500  U.S.A.

The National Review http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=MDFmMzExYjlmZGFjMmU0NWNhOTkzODdhYzY4MzJlMTc= had this to say:

The cost of Obama’s trip will not be close to $1 mil.  It is well over $10 mil if it is a dime. The figures you quoted (accurately) are for flying a VC-25 (Presidential 747). Presidential trips require both 747s, as one is a backup. However, the costs soar when you realize that from the moment a POTUS indicates he wants to go somewhere, dozens, if not hundreds of people start preparing every detail. These details include security, communications, protocol, logistics that boggle the mind and transportation that most people never see. Several Air Force cargo planes of equipment are loaded and flown to the destination with armored limos, security personnel from the Secret Service and the relevant military branches, fuels specialists, etc. A National Airborne Operations Command  Post 747 from Offutt AFB, NE will accompany him to keep POTUS in constant communications in case of national or word emergency . . . We are now up to three 747s, multiple cargo planes and costs for personnel who fly commercial ahead of POTUS. If FLOTUS flies separately, add a C-32 (757) for her and her staff, entourage, hangers-on etc, with attendant security, logistics, etc. Add a few more million dollars, though many personnel in Denmark will cover preparations for both POTUS and FLOTUS.

 Should  have just given the city of Chicago the $10 million if he was going to waste it heading to Denmark .  It could sure use it with some of the highest unemployment in the nation.

 The weather is nicer in South America anyways.

Reacting quickly, Cheerios- the best-selling cereal in the world, is taking advantage of the Obama administration’ s admonishment.  General Mills will be issuing a new cereal to be named Obama O’s, of course -in specially marked boxes.  In compliance with the FDA,  OBama O’s will have absolutely no health claims.  

Obama O’s cereal will be made with Stevia.   In marketing the new sugar, this new sweetener is derived from the leaf of an herb called Stevia.  Consumer demand for so called natural products continues to grow, even in this mind boggling deficit and season of bailouts.  The sugar alternative is also known as Truvia and PureVia.

Cheerios and OBama O’s couldn’t have bought the kind of advertising and commentary it is receiving after the FDA sent a letter to General Mills Inc.  The letter scolded the company for violations and gave it 15 days to change the claims that the iconic ‘Os’ may lower cholesterol and help to treat heart disease.

With Obama slipping a bit in the polls, his advisor’s felt this the right time to allow the release of OBama O’s to the nation.  The O’s in the New OBama O’s cereal will be dyed red, white and blue.  The dye will be similar to the renewable, vegetable-based inks that was used for coloring easter eggs on the White House Lawn.  Those toasted O’ s will remain their crunchy texture unless the milk come from injected rBGH- growth hormone cows. The FDA fast tracked its approval at the President’s request. 

Plans are in the works for OBama O’s to correspond to the ad campaign for the Olympic Rings. ““The Obama White House is playing an unprecedented role in the bid to bring the 2016 Summer Olympics to Chicago, with top adviser Valerie Jarrett spearheading an effort that draws on the international symbolism of his presidency,” Politico writes, adding that “the emerging effort by the White House is unusually pointed in its attempt to wrap the campaign around the president and his appealing image abroad.”

The Original design featured was during Presidential campaign.  In keeping with his Barack Star image, the boxes will now feature Michelle, the children, the dog and special guest  Bill Ayers, eating breakfast in The White House.  Ayers was invited in honor of the release of his latest book Race Course Against White Supremacy scheduled for release on Amazon.  http://www.amazon.com/Race-Course-Against-White-Supremacy/dp/088378291X/ref=cm_sw_em_r_dp_title_featured?ie=UTF8&tag=tellafriend-20 

While no one has ever seen President Obama’s birth certificate or medical records, by all accounts he appears fit enough to bow down to kings and most certainly presentable as setting a fine example of the American judicial and political system.   General Mills approached President Obama to lend his endorsement in lieu of a court injunction and or product seizure.  Obama O’s will be served at all state events. 
 
Obama previously said, “Why can’t I just eat my waffle?” –after being asked a foreign policy question by a reporter while visiting a diner in Pennsylvania.  Press Secretary Gibbs today, noted that in keeping with a great American Tradition, food products today aren’t as  healthy as its packaging leads shoppers to believe.

This is the change you can believe in.  Hope in every box?  Don’t choke on it. Satire of course.  photo props to http://www.thedieline.com/blog/2008/10/capn-mccains-ob.html
