Manure Meter Alert!

The Manure Meter went off scale this morning before church as I made the mistake of reading this report from the Chicago Sun-Times:

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."

State Rep. Susana Mendoza (D-Chicago) said she saw firsthand the resentment against America five years ago when she was in Rio de Janeiro. "I feel in my gut that this vote today was political and mean-spirited," she said.

See what I mean?

It couldn't be that Olympic committee voters were troubled by the sweeping changes in the U.S.O.C. leadership, putting non-Olympic corporate people in charge. (Kind of like our government installing a new president for GM who had never built cars, but I digress ...)

It couldn't be that maybe Rio just had a better presentation, a more appealing venue, and that the Southern hemisphere is somewhat overdue.

It couldn't be that President Obama and the Chicago entourage were seen as political grandstanding, in a ham-handed, "this is our biographical destiny," sort of way.

Naw! It's the fault of George W. Bush and all those evil (white) presidents who came before him. The world hates us. Now it's the world that is "mean spirited." Poor Barack may need three or four presidential terms to heal this wound!

Power seems to be hastening the Left's slide into complete lunacy.
