Absolutely disgraceful: Obama makes fun of people with special needs

Where's the class Mr. Harvard alum? I thought the sooooo classy President would not make fun of people with special needs. Isn't that what the Left told us? Isn't that what the Left stands for - special interests? Interests of the minority? What a shameful display of hypocrisy.

This is our President. Not an actor. Not a pop star. Our President. The fact that he even went on Jay Leno's Tonight Show rustled the feathers of many, but his disparaging, hurtful remark toward the Special Olympics and people who participate in them was shameful. He needs to set an example for us and not humiliate people who have special needs.

This is what happened:
He bowled a 129, Obama said. "That's very good, Mr. President," Leno said sarcastically. "It's like the Special Olympics or something," Obama said.

People who participate in the Special Olympics should be celebrated, not humiliated. Tim Shriver, chairman of the Special Olympics, accepted Obama's apology but said: "[it's] important to see that words hurt, and words do matter and these words can in some way be seen as humiliating or put down to people with special needs do cause pain and they do result in stereotypes, and they do result in behavior that's neglectful and almost oppressive moment of people with special needs."

Here is someone who understands how precious these kids are:

I would like to take this moment to highlight Robert Bianco, an AP writer whose story was picked up on USA Today. These are his remarks from Obama's appearance on the Tonight Show, in a column titled "Presidential dignity still intact after Leno's couch":

Calm, witty and in control, he came to deliver a message — the economy is in trouble, but it will recover — and that's what he did, with very few diversions.

And he did it, you'd have to think, without inflicting any damage on the integrity of the presidency. Whatever one thinks of his policies, no one can accuse Obama of lacking gravity or dignity. He doesn't need any particularly setting to bestow those qualities on him; he carries them with him.

Not one word about the Special Olympics remark. Mr. Bianco, you are a deluded, brainwashed idiot who has lost all journalistic integrity and appear as though you are worshipping at the altar of Obama. How could anyone who makes fun of the Special Olympics be considered having dignity? You need some psychological help, sir.
I will not let this go. I'm going to bring it up every chance I get to show how hypocritical he is and the Left in general. I'm going to bring it up constantly to show that the Harvard alum is not a sophisticated and classy as the dingbats on the Left think he is.
Sarah Palin is more intelligent and classier than Barack Obama ever will be in his entire life.
