It's gonna be a long four years...

Here's one more for the "If George Bush (or Trent Lott, or George Allen, or...) had said it..." file:

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.


It's as if the mean kid on the schoolyard never grew up. Can the man think without a teleprompter?

I could be overanalyzing, but I see a Freudian component to this slip-up. This, after all, a man who before he's been in office a month has reinserted abortion promotion into foreign health assistance, elevated a number of radical pro-aborts to positions of influence, declared open season on human embryos, defunded a non-embryo-destructive form of stem cell research, and made motions to compel pro-life medical practitioners to violate their consciences or leave their jobs. Insensitivity to the handicapped seems to fall right in line.

He has hurt many families in America. He needs to say he is sorry in the public, not to an organization.

In addition, someone who claims to have experienced prejudice and stereotypes throughout life, and has written about them in great detail, should be more sensitive and refined from life's lessons.

Furthermore, Obama claimed he was going to have the world think 'highly' of America again. Will this joke help?

For someone who spoke of equality as a creed. Does this joke match that philosophy?

For someone that said he would stand for all people. Does this stand up for those that participate in the Special Olympics?

The fact is Obama claimed a higher standard. To much is given, much is required.

Obama has just showed us that 'yes we can' destroy what a campaign stands for with a single joke.

During the campaign for the White House in 2008, the media criticized Palin for being ‘common,’ 'not-polished,' 'not-compassionate' and ‘not presidential.’ However, compare Sarah Palins attitude in this video created three weeks ago for the Special Olympics in Boise, Idaho.

You decide the more ‘presidential’ among them. Watch:
