I Was Twittering and Came Across This......

Obama`s "Believe In Me `09 Tour" is off to a great start with his groundbreaking appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He brought the house down along with the last trace of his dignity. He might as well have kicked a puppy across the stage. What kind of a person makes jokes about the disabled? Answer: The kind of man who should not be our President.

This comment was in response to Obama's appearance on Jay Leno Thursday night where he quipped that he bowls like he is in the Special Olympics.

Are you kidding me??? Now, there is a role model for our kids!

President Obama, our country is in the throes of chaos and our economy is in shambles, please get off of late night television and DO YOUR JOB!

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

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:

My hope is that he will learn from his comment about the Special Olympics. It was definitely a thoughtless comment, but as someone else said, he is surely getting a big dose of awareness now.

I spent this morning watching kids with a variety of disabilities, ages and ability levels learning to play soccer and was amazed by their willingness to get out there and do their best, despite the physical or developmental challenges they may deal with.

And, by the way, some of them are a lot better than I would be!
