President Obama in Copenhagen for Olympic Bid

Thursday, October 01, 2009

President Obama is in Copenhagen today to make the case that Chicago should be the host city for the 2016 Summer Olympics. We measure the mood in Denmark with BBC Sports News correspondent Alex Capstick.

And we're asking you, Is the president spending his international political capital on the right issue?

This is a self-serving waste of taxpayer money. O is not the Mayor of Chicago and if he and Michelle want to go to Copenhagen, Chicago should pay ALL their expenses or they should pay for them themselves.

The Olympics mean jobs for the city, state and country who host. Jobs mean recovery. Yes. It's a good idea for the President to use his voice in support of Chicago's bid.
