Obama says Sochi Olympics are safe

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he believes the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, will be safe and is not discouraging Americans from attending.

Obama says Russian authorities "understand the stakes" involved in securing the games and the potential threats against the events. He says the U.S. is coordinating with Russia and officials have looked at the Russian security plans.

 
Still, Obama says there are "always some risks" involved with large international gatherings like the Olympics. And he says he feels better when those types of events are held in the United States because American officials have full control over what happen.

Obama spoke in an interview with CNN.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

With that assurance, if I already had tickets and reservations, I'd cancel them.   :bolt:

If you like your safe Olympics, you can keep your safe Olympics
I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Whew!  And I was worried...
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

He's an idiot for opening his mouth about this.

Now if something happens, he'll once more look foolish.  blame Vladimir Putin.

Sure!  On the TV at the White House, surrounded by armed guards and security devices.

Yes.

I'm surprised actually, that his handlers would allow him to comment like that.

He was probably just trying to be magnanimous in expressing confidence in Russian security forces.

But politically, it could diminish his stature even lower on a global level (if that's possible)
