h/t to Gateway Pundit for linking the video showing CNN reporters in absolute disbelief and utter shock when they hear the live results that Chicago is eliminated from the 2016 Olympic Bid in the first round of voting, despite Obama's multi-million dollar taxpayer expense trip to Copenhagen. Watch this clip.
The CNN reporter, upon hearing that Chicago was eliminated in the first round whispered "Chicago is out..." then followed it with repeating a shocked Question "Chicago is OUT??? Chicago is OUT?!?!?!"... "Wait a minute... Chicago is OUT???!!!???"
The absolute disbelief as CNN prepared to celebrate a victory for Obama (as was evidence by the "countdown clock") is telling of the most likely realization that Obama is not the great leader of the world that the media has propped him up to be... The Times Online nailing the sentiment exactly with the headline "Obama’s Olympic failure will only add to doubts about his presidency"
Wolf Blitzer can then be heard stating that this is an "unbelievable development" and reported on an "audible gasp"...
These were the audible gasps and unbelievable realization that Obama is not the great Messiah. In taking this as his personal pet project, his credibility as "Persuader In Chief" was placed on the line, and he failed on the world stage... America didn't fail - OBAMA FAILED. He made a major miscalculation regarding his influence over the world. The media had the same miscalculation, and this is why they are so shocked.
Obama and CNN's early celebration was cut short with a vote of no confidence, a virtual bitch slap on the world stage...DOWN GOES FRAZIER! as one commenter wrote. Not just that Obama and Chicago lost the Olympic bid, but that they were taken out in the first round - THAT is the slap, that is the shock, that is the complete message of disrespect by the world audience. Obama is cheered around the world because he apologizes for America... the left and the media just learned that being like does not mean being respected.
Doubts about Obama's presidency? Having spent nearly his first year in office as an ineffective prompter puppet, has anyone had anything BUT doubts?
Obama gets an EPIC FAIL on this one!
