It must be “resentment” – It must be “racism”

Of course, there isn’t any good reason why Rio de Janeiro should win the Olympics bid other than the world’s “resentment” against the US because of Bush.  Just like there isn’t any good reason why people would be upset with Obama’s naiveté in foreign policy, his radical past and continuing ties, his socialist/communist leanings and agenda, and his disdain for capitalism other than “racism.”  It appears the thinking of these people is so shallow that their own biased anti-American and racist thoughts bubble up to the surface.

Chicago torpedoed by anti-U.S. sentiment?

Some Chicago officials say anti-American resentment likely played a role in Chicago's Olympic bid dying in the first round Friday.

President Obama could not undo in one year the resentment against America that President Bush and others built up for years, they said.

"There must be" resentment against America, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said, near the stage where he had hoped to give a victory speech in Daley Center Plaza. "The way we [refused to sign] the Kyoto Treaty, we misled the world into Iraq. The world had a very bad taste in its mouth about us. But there was such a turnaround after last November. The world now feels better about America and about Americans. That's why I thought the president's going was the deal-maker."
