What do you think about this trip? I think Michelle could have gone. It just gives all the gripers something more to gripe about and I hate that.

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

    They're going to gripe, no matter what. He's spending less than 24 hours on this trip, and he's really got to do it himself, because he's from Chicago. Tribute must be paid to one's hometown.

    I wondered why he didn't send Hilary.

    But Michelle is the Chicago native. You are right on the griping part though....if he didn't go someone would say he should have. Actually Mitt Romney even said he should go which surprised me. But then others said if it was another town - would he have gone? Just being a devils advocate here.

    I didn't realize all the other nations send their leaders. Then it seems appropriate!

    At first I thought he was overextending himself, trying to do too much, but from what I have read, it will really help their chances. article. I guess I would have thought Michelle would have been enough, but perhaps not?

    Michelle isn't president. And other leaders state their cases personally for their own countries, so I think it's perfectly appropriate for Obama to do this. It's good for our country's economy to host major world sporting events, and lord knows we need all the economic help we can get as we continue to shovel out the manure from the national stables left by Bushy McStupid.

    If he didn't go, and we didn't get them, there would be griping.

    If he goes, and we didn't get chosen, there would be griping.

    If he goes, and we get chosen, there would be griping.

    If he didn't go, and we were chosen, people would gripe that we really don't need the Olympics. In fact, Michael Steele already has said that jobs in 7 years don't matter - that the focus should be on jobs now.
