I guess Obamacorn never learned sportsmanship when he played basketball. Even small children who lose a little league tournament know how to behave better and to stay until the end.
If this is how Chicago and the Triple 0 team acted afterwards, you got to wonder how they acted when they were trying to get the votes. Well, this article does say a bit about Michelle. It sounds like she went after the countries who had the most votes rather than trying to campaign to everyone. Wow, sounds like how they acted last year.
The article is a bit hard to read, but it is worth the time.
Balls, Fury, And Emigration In Copenhagen By Chicago Olympic Delegation
October 6, 2009 · 2 Comments
The Danish Ekstra Bladet has an interesting discussion on what really happened in Copenhagen when the IOC awarded the 2016 Olympic games to Rio de Janeiro. Lars Werge wanted to make sure everyone knew the events unseen to the world.
Wergeland’s column: f**ing balls from Obama. Translation here.
Outside the gallery:Chicago’s Olympic dreams shattered triggered f**ing balls, fury and emigration in Bella Center, says Lars Werge.
Looks like the Chicago delegation behaved in a very unsportsmanship-like manner. One not espoused by the IOC. They up and left the event when Chicago was eliminated in the very first round, leaving behind all their equipment for the event center to have to pack up for them. The first lady maximized her contact with the more important voting block, thereby ignoring the others. The translation is course, but plow through and see the back scene events. Another reason why Chicago lost out on the esteemed honor to host the games.
Apparently, Chicago really was a sore loser.

President Barack Obama was not particularly pleased to come to Copenhagen and then suffered a defeat to Tokyo, Rio and Madrid.
Bella Center is deserted by 95 percent of the media people who were present on Friday when the host city of 2016 was chosen.
Back are very few and they have – just to conclude on Klummen from yesterday – all now had access to the lobby area outside the conference rooms where the IOC members and other delegates can breathe beyond good food, wine and coffee during breaks in the strenuous program.
This means that there is again free access to the rumors, theories and rumors. In this way separates an Olympic conference is certainly not from others: Things going on in the bar and over coffee.
It has filled a great deal that Chicago did not get hosting, and the lobby buzzing with stories about how it was tackled behind.
It would for instance be true that Pat Ryan, who was chairman of the candidate committee, got a call from Air Force One, since the outcome was clear, or rather when it became clear that Chicago had pep out of competition as the first city .
In very angry manner, not to say in anger, berated Barack Obama supposedly beyond that he had been taken to Copenhagen to get as marked a defeat.
The president – who upon arriving in the United States was smooth and polite and said it was great that the Games had come to Rio de Janeiro – was furious that the committee was not better prepared, and he felt certain more or less taken into rø …
Wasted work by Michelle
There has also been anger at Mr and Mrs Obama and the Supreme Olympic circles since last Friday that Michelle Obama spent most of Thursday and part of Friday to speak with a lot of members of the IOC – that is, with the host’s decision makers.
In the best campaign style, she chose to charge them with support, and supposedly there were many more yes votes than the 18 who voted in Chicago in the first round.
Also it has turned the presidential frenzy, but the witnesses may in fact just about a political amateur sports, where Obama is not aware that the IOC members say one thing and doing something completely different.
Left the room in anger
In any event, it raised both anger, shock and sadness among the staff of the Chicago committee who were present at the Bella Center on Friday, when Jacques Rogge said “the Windy City ‘as the first loser.
In what is an old expression called lesions, they rose, according to some of the Danish team in the organizing committee itself and left the Bella Center.
With the result that the number of Chicago employees and supporters of the first was not present when the official disclosure of 2016 host city took place in front of 1 billion people. The Olympic tradition prescribes otherwise, that all candidate cities must be present and thus demonstrate sportsmanship.
Second, leaving the furious Chicago people all their computers, cakes and other equipment at the Bella Center.
Out of the building, out of the country and just gone, gone, gone – with the result that now the hardware has been packed and sealed in boxes that stand in the Bella Center, and then waiting is really just on whether there will be a question to get the equipment after sent.
Swiss will not give up
Moreover, it is wonderful to follow the various battles on so closely, for the honor you get an insight into the whole fat by consultants, managers, marketers, sporting intelligence agents and genuine Olympic intermediaries work.
The Swiss firm TSE Consulting (the other day I came to call them something else, and I hereby apologize for), for example, worked for the Chicago 2016 and there has certainly been a massive disappointment in the company over the outcome – you are the winning team, gives of course the company a boost of dimensions.
But like true sportsmen, the TSE risen again, and Sunday had the people at the Bella Center to promote the Polish city of Poznan tender youth Olympics 2014th.
The Olympic world, in other words, deal on all shelves. Maybe Chicago should also go after something in the style next time?
