Obama makes 2016 Olympic sales pitch for Chicago

In this acticle it talked about how President Obama and his wife went over to Denmark and are requesting that the 2016 Olympics be in Chicago, Illinois in the United States of America. Obama said, "Chicago is a place where we strive to celebrate what makes us different, jus as we celebrate what we have in common." President Obama also reminded the IOC members that Chicago has hosted large events in the past like in 1893 when they hosted the Worlds Fair or in 1994 when they hosted the World Cup. They were both successfull events in Chicago. Michelle also pointed out that "that city's community spirt and disire to meet challenges." Michelle also says, "It's about our responsibility as Americans not just to put on great Games, but to use these Games as a vehicle o bring us together, to usher in a new era of international engagement, and to give us hope and to change lives all over the world."

My opinion about this article is that I think it would be a great idea. I feel that if the United States gets the chance to hold the 2016 Olympics in Chicago, Illinois that it will be a great opportunity. It would be a great opportunity for America to show all the countries how we can be trusted. I also believe that if the Olympics were held in Chicago that it would give more jobs to people who are unemployed. The umemployment rate would go down and people wouldn't be in such harsh financial situations.
