I have said all along that Obama is a small and petty man. I think he is amateurish and displays behavior that borders on childishness. He proved me right yet again, Obama on 'Tonight Show' Discusses Economy, Makes Special Olympics Joke.
President Obama sat down with Jay Leno on Thursday for a late-night TV interview that spanned a range of topics -- from the economic crisis to the presidential dog -- and even, at one point, featured the president joking that his bowling ability was suitable for the Special Olympics.
The bowling comment was a reminder of his poor performance on the lanes last year during one of his campaign stops. Obama bragged to "The Tonight Show" that he recently bowled 129 on the White House alley.
"It's like Special Olympics," he said.
I know people make comments they wish they hadn't made and I know that mistakes are made. Making a comment like this though is not misspeaking, it's a character flaw.
I am sick to death of the media and his supporters making excuses for this man. When the Hell is he going to start acting like the President instead of a damned idiot?
For a good example of his supporters downplaying this, look at this poll on HuffPo. As of this writing, 77% thought it was no big deal.
