The Big Story
Missed Opportunity
Wednesday, July 06, 2005
By John Gibson

All day long people have been saying to me, "Wasn't it great they didn't pick Paris?" And I've been saying, "No, no, no."

Paris was exactly the right place to pick and the Olympic committee screwed up.

Why? Simple. It would have been a three-week period where we wouldn't have had to worry about terrorism.

First, the French think they are so good at dealing with the Arab world that they would have gone out and paid every terrorist off. And things would have been calm.

Or another way to look at it is the French are already up to their eyeballs in terrorists. The French hide them in miserable slums, out of sight of the rich people in Paris.

So it would have been a treat, actually, to watch the French dealing with the problem of their own homegrown Islamist terrorists living in France already.

...

But, alas, they picked London. I like the Brits. I like London. I hate to see them going through all this garbage when it would have been just fine in Paris.

C'est la vie. Goes to show the Olympic committee doesn't recognize the perfect opportunity when it presents itself.

That's My Word.
I mean, what a dick... His comments a day before the terrorist attacks in London. Thanks for pointing this out Atrios.

I mean seriously what is their fascination with bashing the French? These guys are bigger cowards than the French, I am sure of that. So what, the French did not want to go along with our unlawful war? And now these right wing speaker boxes (read: Fox Newscasters) can’t get off of it. These guys are like some B-movie monster because they feed off of peoples hate and fear! I will use my Grandfather as an example, he is no longer with us, but he was a great guy. Although I bet he would have loved Fox news because he was terribly old school, he thought minorities were getting too much for free, he would have been scared to death of Muslims after Sep.11th and he would have loved the overly simple, “common sense” style of Fox news. I know that know one wants to give them this much credit but Fox News is a major reason why Bush was reelected.

They just play off of the "redneck" ignorance’s in society. Never mind the fact that the French helped us defeat the Brits during the Revolutionary War… which always draws a blank in their minds.
