By now most of you probably heard that the Big Guy’s trip to Copenhagen to try to get the Olympics in Chicago was epic fail. Chicago got thrown out in the first round, and the prize goes to Brazil. The Brazilian president was present as well. This is epic fail on the part of the White House. As Jim Geraghty points out, the President should only really appear when the deal is already done. That’s what I suspect the Brazilian president was doing there. Getting thrown out in the first round wasn’t just a “no thanks” that was a “f**k you”. I’m guessing they wanted to punish Obama for the arrogance of showing up believing he was going to upstage the Brazilian leader, and undo what was already done.
