Sorry, not every city can match the awesomeness of Bucharest.

Tokyo would be a good choice two, as you said Brazil has the 2014 World Cup, Madrid has small chances since 2012 was in Europe.
since when is Chicago another "s*hole"?

New York is not bidding this time because The New York Jets are helping build a new stadium with the Giants, so if they built the same stadium, no one would play in it after the games.

Many people in the USA Think Chicago is better then New York (it is)

Also, Chicago is the Sky Scrapper Capital.

It cost to much money to bid every time, and the USOC decides the USA Finalist.

What is Shit Hole America buddy? Chicago is one of the Best Top Tier Cities in the World. Furthermore, The USA has more Top Tier cities then most countries have Cities.

So Wey is on the record that Bucharest is an elite city above the s--t holes of the world that aren't up to snuff to host a games. Glad to know.

Shocker, Brazilians will flood a thread and vote for their city.

I really hope Rio doesn't win, Brazil isn't prepared for host such a huge event, i don't thing it's even ready to host a World Cup.

Brazil hosted it in 50's, so it's more than prepared to host a World Cup!

And in economic terms, Brazil is the only country among the four that is not in recession, and will grow more than 3% this year!

The city of Chicago is not safe, example Al Capone, Alcatraz etc...

The sugar loaf is higher than the skyline of Chicago

so to prove your (incorrect)point about chicago, you chose to reference a man who died half a century ago and a closed prison located nearly 2,000 miles away.

anyways murder rate in chicago(2004) was 15.65 per 100,000 people, murder rate in rio(2006) was 37.7 per 100,000 people.

Yeah, Alcatraz is definitely one of the down-sides of Chicago's bid...

Where did you come from? Have you any idea how incorrect and irrelevant that statement is?

Now, I can realize why people may think it's unfair for the US to host again so soon after Salt Lake City and Atlanta; and even as a US citizen, I must agree it would probably be a tad unfair. I would pick Rio probably to be the choice this time. But if not, I'mm all for Chicago : )
