Obama stresses tolerance for Sochi Games, predicts US Olympic gold
The president expects some gold next month.
President Barack Obama addressed the nation Tuesday night, and he dropped some expectations on the athletes headed to Sochi next month.
Amongst other things, the president discussed what the world had in store come competition time in Russia.
As a brief introduction, Obama spoke to America's collective giving spirit. He then added his prediction as to what was to come.
We do these things because they help promote our long-term security. And we do them because we believe in the inherent dignity and equality of every human being, regardless of race or religion, creed or sexual orientation. And next week, the world will see one expression of that commitment -- when Team USA marches the red, white, and blue into the Olympic Stadium -- and brings home the gold.
No pressure, folks.
