Obama announces that US athletes will not be allowed to compete in the Sochi Olympics.
one man's opinion...

Posted on 03/02/2014 9:08:57 PM PST by ken5050

Obama just held an unprecedented late Sunday evening press conference at the White House, to announce that in response to Russian actions in the Ukraine, US athletes would not be allowed to compete in the Sochi Olympics. He also said that he was instructing relevant US agencies to immediately ban the importation of Russian caviar, vodka, and borscht into the US.


TOPICS: Humor
KEYWORDS: lame
When told by NBC's Chuck Todd, who had the first question, that the Sochi Olympics were over, Obama replied "Really? That's the first I'd heard about that. I had no knowlege of it before tonight."

Reporters were scrambling to attend the WH presser, as they'd been told earlier in the day there would be no more news from the WH. Press secretary Carney apologized for the late hour, but said that the President did not want to interrupt the Academy Awards. "After all, Ellen DeGeneris was hosting, and '12 years a Slave' would win Best Picture,' so we didn't want to keep American from watching that."

You think you are going to one-up Semmen's satire that easy?

Great fun, and very believable, just like John's stuff ................

The 1980 Games were the first to be staged in Eastern Europe.

Led by the US with the insistence of its President Jimmy Carter, 65 countries boycotted the games because of the Soviet war in Afghanistan, though some athletes from some of the boycotting countries participated in the games, under the Olympic Flag.[2] This prompted the Soviet-led boycott of the 1984 Summer Olympics.

I am with Roberts in terms of how he explains the idiocy of this Administration on the Ukraine:

I thought he wanted them to wear pink underwear at the games to show support.

I find Semmens’ stuff tedious.

YMMV

The problem is, though Ken5050 is trying to be funny, I can actually see this scenario happening in real time.

I hope all Russian goods are removed from shelves and crushed with bulldozers too.

That's the way to tell Putin.
