Chicago 2016: The Agony of Defeat

The Olympics are about winning -- you know, the Thrill of Victory. Olympians are champions -- they have to be, just to be Olympians.

And champions understand that, if Victory isn't everything, you won't be a winner. You'll be a loser. "Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing."

But Mr. Chicago, Barack Obama, recently told the world, he's "not interested in victory." So is it any surprise that the world, when looking for a city to host the 2016 Summer Olympics, blew him and his city, and his country, off?

It shouldn't be.

[addendum: This is the first Summer Olympics where women's boxing will be an official event. We say, it's best that America doesn't host that kind of barbarism.]
