@dyslexia,
good thing we spent obama's time and our money to fly him out - well at least they got a nice short vacation for their efforts.

@dyslexia,
I thought Rio was a shoe in from the beginning. US friendly time zone, first ever Olympics in South America, interesting city, etc. I thought Tokyo and Chicago were kind of bland in comparison.

@Cycloptichorn,
So they didn't even get a short over night stay - what a waste.

I believe it was overnight, including those 15 hours. Probably not a lot of time to see the sights, tho.

I'll bet that issue will be resolved by the time the Olymics start up. I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more flights open up.

@Cycloptichorn,
Michelle probably got to see some sights. She was there ahead of the Prez.
