What a Joke

The first sitting President to appear on a Late Night talk show- Obama makes a joke about his bowling skills being suitable for The Special Olympics.

So- let me get this straight- it's Okay for the President of the United States to joke about developmentally disabled Down's Syndrome children?

He'll issue his second apology (in only 4 months- remember the Nancy Reagan/seance joke?) for un-Presidential like conduct. I'm sure Eunice Kennedy will stand by his side when he does it.

Just last month the White House released this statement regarding an appointment of a "Special Assistant to the President on Disability Policy" touting it as the "First Time a President has had a Special Assistant Focused Exclusively on Disability Policy"

“The commitment that the President and I have to Special Olympics and people with disabilities is deep and abiding. And we are backing up those words with real action at the White House,” said Vice President Biden. “This is our first step to ensure that we have a strong advocate for people with disabilities at the highest levels of our Administration.”

....Tim Shriver, board chairman of the Special Olympics and son of Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver, told Biden that he believed the games "represent the largest movement for tolerance in the world.

"Mockery, bullying and the institutionalization of people with disabilities still exist in America and around the globe, Shriver said, making it important for the Obama administration to set an example of support.

"When this campaign hit the world stage, we felt that finally someone was speaking our language," Shriver said.

Yeah- he's speaking your language all right. If this were a Republican finish the sentence. Let's see what the PC liberal media does with this. Silly me- they'll do NOTHING!

Wow....Obama is as bad as Biden with slip-up's, but at least Joe isn't so mean-spirited.

Karl Rove described Obama this way:

"Even if you never met him, you know this guy," Rove said, per Christianne Klein. "He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."

Yup- that's him and he just can't help himself.

Done. Toast. Gone. That SO comment is something a "Joe Six Pack" can make in a bar and get a few laughs. Not the President of the USA. Biden could probably get away with it because everyone knows he's an invalid. "It's not an accident that no sitting president has ever done a show like this," media analyst Steve Adubato told FOX News on Thursday before Obama's TV appearance.

So now he doesn't represent anyone who makes over $250,000 as well as people with disabilities. So classless. Can't wait for the apology as well as Gibbs' try at defending that one. And of course, he will be handing out the medals this year to restore his image. Because that's what liberals always do; they smack you in the head with a baseball bat, and then give you a kiss and say they are sorry. Fear based love, the oldest trick in the book.

A little afraid to say this, but after watching half of the Leno segment which is all I could take, I'm ready to see a lot more of Michelle in the press and on TV. By the way, how are the girls doing in school?

Happy New Year to our Iranian Friends!

You can't make this stuff up. Watch the ending.

Last I checked this week, we shot down one of their unmanned drones in Iraq.

Is anybody paying attention???!!!

You know, in the bible, Satan tried to deceive Jesus.

I don't really understand who is trying to deceive who here in this video.

In middle school, we learned the transitive property in math, which was if A = B and A = C, then B = C.

Well in today's world if A = USA, B = Israel, and C = Iran, B sure as hell doesn't equal C. But Obama thinks it does according to this video.

Crazy, just plain crazy.
