tourism some say that the decision to eliminate Chicago in the first
round is not a surprise. Discourse.net has a recent post form Michael
Froomkin claiming that Obama’s continuation of Bush era immigration
policy is a direct link to the Chicago’s demise. If more than

There are other reasons that also play a factor in Rio de Janeiro’s
selection to host the 2016 Olympics. According to the Washington Post
this will mark the first South American site to host the Olympics, and

international community. While Obama’s personal effort to win
Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympics falls short, it leaves many
questions as to why and how we are seen by others abroad.
