One person, one word and one unknown individual can be largely blamed for the lack of attendance at the London Olympic Games and that would be Obama.
His failed foreign policy has made the world a far less safer place. What rational person would want to be sitting at ground zero should the games be attacked as suggested?
Obama once again rivals Jimmy Carter, who screwed up the Olympics for the U.S. Olympic team, while Obama’s “Turn the other cheek” dithering policy with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Muslim midget in Iran only emboldens them.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

A spokesperson for the London Organizing Committee Olympic Games, (Logco) said: “We are aware that some venues have empty seats this morning. We believe the empty seats are in accredited seating areas, and we are in the process of finding out who should have been in the seats and why they weren’t there.”
It comes after Locog faced criticism for the number of seats being given to corporate sponsors, Olympic officials and VIP guests.
There were also fears last week that long queues and transport problems would leave many ticket holders unable to get to their seats in times to watch the main events.
Members of the public echoed such sentiments. Alex Batchelor wrote: “Can anyone explain why there are lots of empty seats? Tried repeatedly to get tickets without success.”
