Why did the IOC choose Rio?

Obviously conservatives think Obama's efforts to get the Olympics the sole factor in the IOC's decision.

    LOL We don't think it is the "sole factor" but it was a factor. They chose rio because we just had the Olympics in the US (remember Einstein?).

    EDIT susisays the equator and Equador are two totally different things.

    Not so obvious. There as never been an Olympics in a South American country, the U.S. has had 8. Rio and Brazil have committed more cash toward the Olympics than Chicago was and they were having trouble committing even that much. It seems Rio and Brazil had more of their publics' support than Chicago did. That's why I would surmise the IOC chose Rio. The IOC's reasons for deciding are secret and no one's spilled the beans yet.

    This could be a lesson to the president that he doesn't have the golden touch, only bronze.

    Because a South American country has never before hosted an Olympics. We've hosted 8 times now.

    South America has never hosted an Olympics. They deserve their turn.

    Because the IOC seem to play politics and they seem to have a big grudge against us.

    Because the lobbyist that represented Chicago was identified as a fool.

  • Not sure where you got that idea.

    South America has never had one
