I don't know why we spend thousands of tax dollars on major news events like Obama's trip to Copenhagen to make a bid for the 2016 Olympics when no one publishes the important photographs. This photo was taken by an alert photo journalist working for Pappy's News Network and forwarded to me this morning. Obama was behind the curtains awaiting the almost certain news that Chicago won and working on his acceptance speech when the committee announced that Chicago got the fewest votes and was eliminated. My photographer caught this rare moment in the life of our president. Anyone with a knowledge of how Chicago politics works would have had a similar reaction. It is scary when you can't pay back those who tweaked the system to get you in office.
