    Obama's quip 'thoughtless joke'


    White House says Obama's quip 'thoughtless joke'
    Associated Press - March 20, 2009 3:33 PM ET
    WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says President Barack Obama realizes his talk show quip about the Special Olympics was a "thoughtless joke" and the group's athletes deserve better.
    White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on Friday dealt with the fallout from Obama's appearance on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show." In his bantering with the host, the president equated his bowling skills with the Special Olympics. Recognizing his blunder, Obama apologized to the chairman of the Special Olympics before the show aired.Gibbs said the president believes that the Special Olympics are "a triumph of the human spirit." Gibbs added that Obama "understands that they deserve a lot better than the thoughtless joke that he made last night."

    If this was Bush, they would have been all over this. Instead the liberal media will largely ignore this, and downplay it when mentioned.

    You have to admit, though, it is pretty funny.

    Now I'm waiting for him to equate his Cabinet to a Special Ed class.

    Washington Post Classifieds: Employment - Administrative

    Progressive federal government entity seeks dynamic, yet politically correct team player for the position of:

    PUBLIC RELATIONS - TEXT EDITOR, TELEPROMPTER CODER.

    Career-minded individuals with experience in ethnic, sexual-orientational, physical, emotional, or psychologically challenged diversity, community outreach, and goal-oriented agenda-driven media, with strong interpersonal and communicative skills needed to support a team of executive-level professionals in public speaking engagements, town hall style meetings, and debates with boorish, uncouth critics who thrive upon silly notions of common sense and anti-aristocracy. Be one of a proven select few who can slay rivals via proxy talking-heads and partake in the re-creation of history. Religious gun-owners need not apply. Send resume and a brief (100 words or less) writing sample on the topic, "What Hope Means to Me", to: White House, c/o Rahm Emmanuel, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, D.C., 20500. Salary commensurate upon experience (and geneological significance). Otherwise, an equal-opportunity employer.

    I agree with Brad. But even if it was Bush I'd have the same opinion: There's plenty more, better, and important reasons to not like him. This stuff is petty.

    I agree.... Hell , I've said the same thing in regards to Special Olympics to describe my running ability since my injury. Granted I'm not the President of the United States but fair is fair.

    The sad part is that one has to ask, "is that a real ad?"

    Agree with Brad and Rhino. I object to alot of things Obama does, but I'm not some politically correct pansy ass who will get his panties in a bunch over this.
