I thought we weren’t allowed to talk this way when dealing with foreigners:
“It’s a battle — we’re going to win — take no prisoners,” the first lady said with a smile at a roundtable discussion with reporters in the White House State Dining Room.
I assume that Obama would not travel to Copenhagen unless he thought
the corruption capital of the world Chicago had the 2016 Olympics in the bag. So here is the anticipated text of Obama’s apology speech regarding the awarding of the Olympics to the gang-bangers’ stomping grounds Chicago over Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, and Madrid:
America has acted unilaterally, without regard for the interests of others. But it is my deeply held belief that in the year 2009 – more than at any point in human history – the interests of nations and peoples are shared. No longer do we have the luxury of indulging our differences to the exclusion of the work that we must do together.
If we are honest with ourselves, we need to admit that we are not living up to that responsibility. In an era when our destiny is shared, power is no longer a zero sum game. No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed.
America will keep our end of the bargain. I am not naïve. I know this will be difficult. That is why the days when America dragged its feet on this issue are over. Now is the time for all of us to do our part. We have reached a pivotal moment. The United States stands ready to begin a new chapter of international cooperation ….
Yeah, so we kicked your ass in Copenhagen and brought home the bacon to Chi-town, suckers … get over it.*
