President Obama

By WimdeVos  
Barack Obama's personal plea backing Chicago's 2016 Olympic bid backfired when the city was eliminated in the first round of voting.
The snub was seen as a slap in the face for the President who hoped his last-minute decision to fly to Denmark, where the vote was being held, would close the deal.
Organisers last night announced Rio de Janeiro as the winning city.

The President as silent, ironical observer. Love this.
