The Obamas Violated
First Three Rules Of Selling

by C. Edmund Wright - October 4th, 2009 - American Thinker

Of course Barack and Michelle Obama failed in Copenhagen. Their strategy could not possibly succeed. In their academic arrogance, they thought they could sell a product they clearly do not believe in (the United States) and moreover, they could do so by stressing the benefits to the seller (Chicago) and not the buyer (the IOC). And to top it off, they committed the faux pas of talking too much about the sales force (themselves) and not about the product or the buyer.

Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

The quotes from the speeches by Michelle and Barack are absolutely astounding. These two could not be more narcissistic if they tried. you should read the article to get the entire argument Mr. Wright makes so persuasively, but one section will give you a sample.

He and the First Lady did not even pretend to be proud of us. They went on an unseemly, surreal begging campaign that mixed in uncomfortable bits and pieces of their personal histories with platitudes about what the Olympic Games could do for the children of Chicago. Oh, BTW, the Obama family would personally find it kind of a cool thing for the neighborhood.
So ask not what our country can do for your Olympics - ask what your Olympics can do for our city. Heck, that was the First Lady's closing argument:
Chicago's vision for the Olympic and Paralympic Movement is about so more than
what we can offer the Games -- it's about what the Games can offer all of us.

That was how she ended her speech. That was her "please sign here" moment. For the record, her talk mentioned NOTHING about what we could offer the games. Not a word. No wonder they didn't sign on the dotted line.

During her speech Michelle whined about growing up on the South side of Chicago. How can Michelle Obama, with all the poverty in the world, think that the advantages even blacks have in America give her the right to poor mouth living here. That is true even if you ignore the special privileges that affirmative action provided by giving her an ivy league education just because she was black. Oh the poor little Michelle. Her husband is the most powerful man in the world because the country he leads is the richest and most powerful in the world. Poverty here is better than middle class in most of the world. Does she not get that? What an idiot.
