After watching Barack Obama live on Jay Leno the other night, I knew there would be backlash from his controversial comment. When speaking about his bowling performance of a 129, he referred to it as “being like the Special Olympics.”
Personally, I think the comment was in bad taste, but I’m not going to dwell on it. Understandably, he is the supposed to be the leader of our country and show some responsibility, but everyone makes mistakes! It was probably the only interview that has not been scripted for him in the last two and a half years.
When looking through the comments on YOUTUBE, some people were outraged and some were willing to forgive and forget.
I got involved with some comments, willing to forgive Obama for his slip-up. Here is what I wrote:
“People need to relax and let the comment slowly drift away. It was an unfortunate slip-up, and he has apologized and admitted his mistake. He was on the Leno show trying to be “just another person” and was trying to have a good time, showing a sense of humor. It was in poor taste, but the comment was not evil-minded or pre-planned to bash the Special Olympics.”
Here is some feedback I got from mrbluejet:
