Bobby Rush has lost his mind.....It's Bush's fault Chicago lost the Olympic bid

Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), who represents a district on the south side of Chicago, commended President Barack Obama’s ultimately unsuccessful work to secure the Olympics for the Windy City, but blamed Obama’s predecessor for the first-round loss in IOC voting on the host of the 2016 games.

"I believe that [Friday]’s action is just the latest example of the cultural breach that still exists between the United States and several leaders of the global community of nations," Rush said in a statement Friday which was not received by The Hill until Sunday.

"[Friday}’s vote by the IOC members reflects the tattered relationships that remain after eight years of the catastrophic reign of the Bush administration," Rush continued. "It will obviously take some time for the Obama administration to continue its important work to repair that breach."
