Do you ever notice . . .

My favorite moments from President Obama's appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno:

Leno: Now, Treasury Secretary Geithner, he seems to be taking a little bit of heat here. How is he holding up with this? He seems like a smart guy.

THE PRESIDENT: It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something. (Laughter.)

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:

I volunteered at a State Special Olympics one weekend.

Obama has a point.

The Special Olympics reward competitors with praise and hugs
for their efforts, no matter the score.

The MSM rewards Obama with praise and panty throwing (easy there, Keith and Chris), no matter the bowling score, floundering foreign relations , or economic muddling.

I can understand Obama's analogy-
his is the 'Special Administration'.
