According to the Associated Press, President Obama is going to Denmark to make a sales pitch to the Olympic Committee for the 2016 Olympics to be held in Chicago. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley says he’s honored that both President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will head to Copenhagen in support of Chicago’s bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

I’m thrilled. Anytime the Celebrity-In-Chief is out of the country is a good thing. Of course, we the taxpayers will be footing the bill for Barack and Michelle’s latest global jaunt. Wouldn’t a phone call have done as well? Or a letter hand delivered by our Ambassador to Denmark?

It seems to me that matters of state can be damned if the Obama’s get a chance to fly on their private jet to see another part of the world. Of course, he doesn’t attend to matters of state anyway. He is too busy seeking out his adoring fans. Denmark. Hmm maybe there is one European country he hasn’t alienated, yet.
