This was truly a fool’s errand. Chicago is broke like church mice and had little business trying to compete for such an expensive prize. Obama has far more serious matters on his plate and it was irresponsible to take time for what has been traditionally a local issue. Furthermore the cost of flying both Obama’s to Copenhagen is as highly irresponsible, given the tremendous financial strain our nation is under.
Perhaps now, Obama will start concentrating on more serious matters at hand like that ever rising unemployment rate, which rose again today to 9.8% or Afghanistan which is falling apart as the seams.
UPDATE: And the winner is:...RIO!
