Insulter & Chief Obama Jokes & Insults Disabled on Tonight Show: Being a bad bowler, It’s “like the Special Olympics or something”
BARACK OBAMA INSULTS SPECIAL OLYMPICS
There is a reason why no sitting US President as ever gone on The Tonight Show. For one, it completely diminishes the office of the Presidency. Two, it is especially wrong to be yuking it up with Jay Leno when so many Americans are experiencing tough times. This is hardly the venue for a President when Obama can call a prime time news conference and have the attention of the world.
Three … well three is for exactly what happened in Barack Obama attempting to make a joke and in turn making fun of and insulting Special Olympic athletes. Let’s go out on a limb and guess that this was not on his teleprompter. Or maybe it will be as Michelle Malkin states, the teleprompter made him do it. I guess this is what elistist do when they get together, make fun of the disabled.
Real class President Obama. As a person who has volunteered for the Special Olympics I do find Obama’s comments completely disgusting. On a person note, I have never met kinder and more motivated individuals in my life that when I volunteered with the Special Olympics. The athletes are a breed a part and will make you look at the Olympic Games in a whole different manner. Barack Obama, you could never be a Special Olympic athlete, you have neither the heart, courage or spirit.
Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.
He bowled a 129, the president said.
“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.
It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.
Mr. Obama and the rest of you Kool-Aid drinking apologists, spare us the BS spin of what you did not mean to do or say. It makes no difference what you intended to do, YOU DID IT!!! People do not intend to be racist when they make certain comments, yet the comments are. You compared your bad bowling to as if you were a Special Olympics athlete. There is no positive message that can be spun. What is even worse Obama, is that this is obviously part of your normal vocabulary as you thought nothing wrong in saying it.
The White House spin machine is already in full spin cycle trying to deflect Barack Obama’s latest gaffe.
When asked about the remark, the White House said the president did not intend to offend.
“The president made an off-hand remark making fun of his own bowling that was in no way intended to disparage the Special Olympics,” White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton said. “He thinks the Special Olympics is a wonderful program that gives an opportunity for people with disabilities from around the world.”
Could you only imagine what would have occurred in GWB made these comments? However, the insult to Special Olympics came from a president who supposedly is articulate. Really? We would say, hey Obama, stick to your day job, but you are even worse at that as well. Hmm, Lorie Byrd as Wizbang agrees.
As Newsbusters asks, will the MSM pay attention to Obama’s offensive remark to the handicap?
