Obama to make Olympic pitch

President Obama will be travelling to Copenhagen for a day to make a pitch for the 2016 Olympic games to come to Chicago. Some people are upset about this, saying the president has important matters he should be attending to.

I disagree. The way I see it, any time he spends schmoozing the IOC is time he’s not working to nationalize our economy and alienate our allies. Sure, the president’s stature may suffer if the IOC picks someone else, but it can’t suffer more than it already has from the president’s own policies.

UPDATE: Ramesh Ponnuru thinks that Obama already knows Chicago has won, and is headed to Copenhagen so he can claim the credit.
