When asked about their trip to Copenhagen to lobby for Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympics, First lady Michelle Obama vowed Monday to "take no prisoners"
"It's a battle -- we're going to win -- take no prisoners," the first lady said with a smile at a discussion with reporters in the White House State Dining Room....
On the real war front, asked to "define victory in Afghanistan," Barack Obama said:
I'm always worried about using the word "victory" because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur.

As if these comments aren't worrisome enough, I have to note that Emperor Hirohito didn't "come down" and surrendered to MacArthur, he sent Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu. Then again, as a Community Organizer I don't expect Obama to 'be up on history'
Oh, and by the way, is there any doubt whatsoever that there are a lot of friends in Chicago waiting to make a bunch of C H A N G E off of the Olympics?
Would the two Community Organizers be traveling to Copenhagen if Seattle or Dallas were bidding instead of Chicago?

UPDATE: And then there's THIS

C H A N G E is right!

. . . and Hope that news of Afghanistan and Iran gets replaced by color photos of Michelle's "buff" arms and Obama's un-change-able smile.

I have a feeling that all of this is a charade, and the Chicago selection is a done deal.

Michelle better release those prisoners. ;-)
