There's such a thing as a Gay Games?

Is it affiliated with the IOC?

RIO 2016 is 'ATHENS 2004'

EMOTIONAL
DESERVING
NEW FRONTIER
BEAUTIFUL LAND

"YES, WE CAN"

CHICAGO 2016 is 'ATLANTA 1996'

ECONOMIC POWER

I hope the outcome is different this time.

NOO! You've clearly never even been to Chicago! Chicago very much deserves these games, it's the perfect big city to hold them.

So wait...Rio is more deserving of the games than Chicago? And yet in MGM's post listing why Rio deserves it more, he has 'Yes We Can' listed? 'Yes We Can' being the famous quote by Barack Obama, the President of the United States...who also happens to be from Chicago?

Huh?

Madrid is the city with the 70% of instalations completed, is the bid with the highest support from citizens. Jaques Roge has said in an interview that the rotation it's not the more important thing for the election. So, don't forget Madrid, can be the great surprise, and i hope so
imho madrid has the best bid !

Chicago has everything you need to host a spectacular Olympic games. The problem is that its in the US, so most people arent mature enough to get past the ridiculous anti-American bile spit out all too often to see that it fits the mold perfectly.

simply cause US don't deserve it! Stop acting like only exist us in the world! Olympic games must be more democratic and should go to many places in the world, like subsaarian africa, india, arabia, etc ... USA hosted two main world sport events in 90 decade (world cup 94 and atlanta 96) now its time for others!

For some people, US should host a WC or Olympics, every decade!

We are not, those events are responsible for a bid for 2016, just because of the bid Rio hosted.
