Michelle Malkin and her commenters (and many other right wing bloggers) are dancing and celebrating this morning, because America lost its bid for the Olympics: The noble “sacrifice” of Michelle Obama.
This is where the rhetoric of “FAIL” leads — they’re openly celebrating when America loses, just because Barack Obama is President. And even though this Olympic bid was also promoted by George W. Bush.
This completely puts the lie to the excuse that those who say they want Obama to fail really mean they want his policies to fail.
No, they want Obama himself to fail, and if that means America fails too, they’re just fine with that.
A sample of the comments at Malkin’s blog:

She wants to make a personal sacrifice? Never a Mayan priest around when you need one…

Learn to samba, sasquatch!
(Congratulations to Brazil and the city of Rio de Janeiro, by the way.)

Another RINO traitor who supported Obama’s trip to Copenhagen to lobby for the Olympic games: Mitt Romney.
