Did you watch the Jay Leno show last night with our new celebrity messiah? I did not bother because I could care less about this attention hound known as our president trying to tout his outrageous budget like he is still campaigning. But I did just watch the tape on Fox & Friends and heard the unbelieveable thing he said that was dubbed a “gaffe”. This was no gaffe! This is an outrage that cannot just be smoothed over with the apology that is sure to come this morning. This incident is what happens when the President does not have the teleprompter speaking for him and it reveals, once again, the soul of this man. This is what he thinks about the mentally disabled – an elitist disdain that is not surprising.
So if you did not see the show and have not seen the clip that MSNBC will be trying hard to hide today, here is what happened. Jay Leno and the President were discussing the President’s bowling skills and lack thereof and he informed Leno that he had recently bowled something like 129. The audience laughed and Leno chuckled and then the President reached over and grabbed Leno’s arm to get his attention and said, “It was like Special Olympics or something.” Mr. President, I know disabled people who could put you to shame on the alley. And what’s more, they put you to shame as people. The most caring and loving and innocent of all of God’s people because they are not bothered by what people think of them – something that completely consumes you.
And I want to hear the Kennedys on this one. The Special Olympics is your baby and you better have something to say today! Obama, apology not excepted whenever you get around to making one.
