OBAMA AND THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS

20 Mar

So by now you’ve all heard about President Obama and his Special Olympics “joke”. Personally I wasn’t offended and really don’t care. He made a joke. Naturally some are offended, but I’m sure the fake outrage will last a while. I also think people should be more offended by what Obama and his people are doing to the Country rather than a throw away line.

This morning on the show we discussed the whole story. Rex was offended, and I wasn’t…it did make for some good radio though. If you missed it, here is the audio: LINK

    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: http://tinyurl.com/ccz6nj
