Surprising since he really went after Bush. But, I think he is more attune to bias since the President is Dem, so he is trying harder.

Obama is an idiot in all other aspects, but I kinda chuckled at this, admittedly. Who can’t enjoy a good “poke fun at retards” joke once in awhile? Damn political correctness.

Our Dear Leader sure showed how immature he is.. and his desperate attempt to get Leno's approval was obvious.. He was nervous and made more than one faux pas. I think even Jay was thinking "What a Dolt" at the end and didn't give Dear Leader the eye contact he longed for.

He’s an uncontrollable smart-ass.”

At least the oaf-of-office's gaffe might give some publicity to the Special Olympic's endeavor later this month.

Spread the Word to End the Word.

Unfortunately, it would behoove a number of Freepers to take this seriously.

I don't care if he bowls "like the Special Olympics". I mind a little that he's an insensitive thug who makes fun of the kids I spend many hours helping every time I volunteer at SO. What really bugs me is that almost every child I've met at SO would make a better choice for the White House than Obama. That's a bad thing for our country.

Not only would I be thrilled to see Governor Palin replace the Socialist-in-Chief, but I'd consider Trig Palin a huge step up in all respects from the disappointment we're stuck with. Obama clearly enjoys making fun of Trig, so I'll be emailing him tonight to let him know that I see him as far lower than the youngest target of his attack machine. We know what Obama and his people think of Trig, so they'll get the message when I (truthfully) tell them that Barack Obama is less qualified than that particular exceptionally cute baby.

Since Zero brought up the subject of “retardation” here's a quote from........ yours truly,

In a time where so much is being made about our first black president, Ann Coulter made the following observation in her column of 2/25/2009:

” But as long as the nation is obsessed with historic milestones, is no one going to remark on what a great country it is where a mentally retarded woman can become speaker of the house?”

To: Volunteer

I’ve worked with Special Olympics since I was a teenager. I also have two kids who are SO athletes. We are an SO family....competing, coaching, volunteering, and giving all of our spare time to the organization. I’ve seen some SO athletes that can bowl and 3-point his sorry ass into the ground. A 129, for alot of SO athletes, is a bad day. Its time that this idea, that SO athletes are somehow by definition poor athletes, should be stomped into the ground.

Oh, great comment on this thread, buddy.

You know, when people like you or our president make comments like that, its another swipe at taking their dignity. That’s the entire reason why he’s in the hot seat right now......because he failed to see that there are people in this world for whom this is their life, they didn’t choose it, and for you or anyone else to use it as an opportunity to insult someone just makes their world harder to live in.

I see your post as no different than Obama’s bowling comment. SHame on you.

The Obamanation has a deeply imbued sense of his own smug superiority, brilliance, and super-human worth to the world.

I have known plenty of people like him, before I got myself away from the Harvard world, and Obambi is one of the worst.

Quips smearing “Special Olympics” competitors come so easily to him because his mental world is consumed with his own self-importance and the inferiority of just about everyone else.

He is an extreme narcissist and egomaniac, and everyone else is just there for his own gratification.

If a R. President uttered such a slur against the Special Olympians the lib outrage would be never ending, and all of the Shriver/Kennedy family members would be trotted out to keep the heat on (Sargent Shriver was a founder of the Special Olympics). As it is Obambi saying this, the libs in the media will try hard to give him a pass.

“Forrest Gump was a hero not due to great mental ability, but due to great mental COURAGE!”

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Forrest Gump was a fictional character.

So?

There are REAL Forrest Gumps in the world.

I have met them!

By the way, Ronald Reagan FREQUENTLY brought up fictional characters, to make a point.

I am rather sure that Jesus, when he brought up the parable of the “Good Samaritan” was using a fictional example to make a point.

Always remember this. This is the pathetic piece of trash who talked about the “bomb they dropped on Pearl Harbor”,
stated that he “travelled to all 57 States”, and called Penn State “The Nitally Lions” among other gaffes. This man should not be sitting in the Oval Office — I cannot believe that right thinking white people would have ever voted for this Bozo!

Bunch of sharecroppers living in the White House. First they put in a playgorund, then the sharecropper’s wife is going to have the lawn cut up to put in vegetables and this jerk spends time in the basement bowling. He spent $37,000 an hour to fly out to California to appear on a talk show and disparage innocent people with Downs Syndrome. Has America gone off its rocker?
