Snookered

Two weeks ago Obama declared that he was too busy lying to the public about Obamacare to take time off for a junket to Denmark on behalf of Chicago's Olympics bid. Now he's heading a delegation to do just that. Did the IOC corner Obama into flip-flopping on the matter? Sure looks that way, according to Allahpundit and Jim Geraghty, who writes in his post, "Obama's No-Time-for-Olympics-Trip Pledge Reaches Its Expiration Date":

The fact that Obama is going signals that Chicago is getting the Olympics, right? Would Obama go if he hadn't been told that his attendance was the difference-maker? Would the IOC have the nerve to reject the hometown of the president, after every international elite spent the last two years telling Americans to elect this man?

And with allied reinforcements in Afghanistan few and far between, Iran shooting off missiles, trade wars brewing with China, Mexico, and Canada, and Russia ignoring the "reset button," doesn't Obama need a big foreign win right now?

If Chicago doesn't get the Olympics, we'll hear a lot of people noting that Obama can't find time to meet with General McChrystal to decide on his Afghanistan plan, but he could find the time to go Denmark to get rejected . . .

If it's this easy to hook him by the short-and-curlies, good luck to Cajonus Giganticus with that whole Iranian thing.

Next up: the monstrous corruption that will naturally ensue once Chicago gets the Games.
