The Olympics are supposed to a time when people come together and play games and enjoy each other's company. Its clear that the US and especially President Obama want it to be a time of continued politics. Obama is smarting because Putin looked more diplomatic in trying to reach a diplomatic resolution in Syria, the Obama/Hillary solution was to ship the Muslim Brotherhood and AlQaeda $250 million in weapons despite the UN embargo. And Putin was right that Russia warned the US about the Boston bombers and Obama's FBI was too busy stalking Tea Party people and blew it. So for the Olympics Obama created a gay rights controversy for the game. Putin does not pander to demographics in his country, Obama's domestic policy is to crate hatred among groups. Russia's gay position is only slighty worse the ours, and about the same in 25 states, but as he does with Americans, Obama hoped to create some hate for the gamaes. The obedient US media eagerly does its part with articles like this.
