    Today's post is the same crap.

    "NO OBAMALYMICS!"

    "This is a big win and a massive relief for taxpayers. But Chicago cronies are not going to take this well. Gird your loins." - MM

    You have to spend money to make money.  Keynesian economics 101.  Athens held the olympics and made a PROFIT of over $167mn.  Beijing apparently made a PROFIT of over $146mn.

    So I don't understand the problem with the "taxpayer dollars" if the games end up generating a PROFIT.  Not only is the olympics deficit neutral, but the city makes a profit.  Compare this to the Iraq War or the TARP bailouts which have not yet been recouped (or ever will be) by the American tax payer.

    These conservatives are soooooo stupid.
