Obama Knocks Those with Special Needs

Obama’s recent appearance on Leno was supposed to be a public relations fluff gig.  It hasn’t turned out that way.  Obama believes that he has to push his celebrity “cool” factor for some kind of connection with the other half.  Either that or deal with the mess we’re all in.  So, while knocking his ability to bowl he also knocked the Special Olympics in an attempt for laughs and self-deprecation:

Not a very cool thing for a President to say on national TV.  It’s also quite a contrast to the kind of class we could have had around the White House:

Remeber Don Imus’ Comment?

Obama said: “He fed into some of the worst stereotypes that my two young daughters are having to deal with today in America. The notions that as young African-American women — who I hope will be athletes — that that somehow makes them less beautiful or less important. It was a degrading comment. It’s one that I’m not interested in supporting.”

Therefore, laughter and the lack of reaction from Obama’s remarks suggest Americans have a set a rules for race, class and gender: If you touch them you will pay.

And another set of rules for individuals that have a mental or physical disability: If you touch them, it’s ok if you apologize. Oh, and by the way, it’s okay to laugh at the jokes that come at the expense of the latter.

It is just cruel.

It’s not what someone says as much as who is saying it. Lib’s can pretty much say anything they want. The only reaction will be a little castigating by their buds in the media after the cameras are turned off.
