Bill Kristol: Obama Should Have Been Rooting For Brazil

Given what Obama thinks of the US Kristol is right:

The Huffington Post provided the transcript:

“There are so many ironies in this. By Barack Obama’s view of the world, he should have been routing for Brazil to get the Olympics.”

“South America has never gotten them, Brazil has never gotten them. It is a rising power, it would help Brazil. We don’t need the Olympics, we have had them a million times. Our economy doesn’t need the boost of the Olympics. And then [Obama] in a sort of George W. Bush like way goes and tries to bully the International Olympic Committee… Come walk with us. I’m here for America.”

It’s just too bad Obama’s arrogance got in the way.
