white hot


This makes me WHITE HOT MAD....
I do not take kindly to jokes about the short bus.
I do my best to increase awareness when I hear people casually blurt the "R" word.

And now we've got The President himself, making jokes about Special Olympics....

I didn't like him before....now I REALLY don't like him...at all.


What a jerk......I feel like the Dixie Chicks (never thought I'd say THAT..). this shames me that he represents my country. Someone needs to increase HIS awareness.....

{.....okay, I"m going to go have a cup of tea....and pray for our elected leaders....}

ETA: I just HAD TO add this link.
HOOAH for Michigan's Kolan McConiughey (KO-lahn Mc-KAHNA-he)...
Apparently, LOTS of people are mad at Obama for this latest gaffe.
And THEY SHOULD BE.
But please note, if you put profanity in your comment, I cannot post it. So be mad, but family-friendly.

if you won't say it, I WILL:

that man is an idiot...
and so are the people that chose him.

It is scary that we are seeing "slip-ups" so early on like this. I thought he would wait a little longer to let his real side show. :)
I am with you on this one.....and for the fact that he should have better things to do other than be on Jay Leno's show.
Just my opinion...

What a thoughtless remark. It goes to show how few people understand how hurtful, rude, hateful it is to make jokes of this kind. I am so glad that there are people out there who are now getting militant about the name calling, snide innuendos and jokes about those who are handicapped.

I did not watch the show. I am sorry that Obama made such remarks. I will be writing to tell him how I feel about those sort of comments.

Good for you, Suzanne, and any other bloggers who are letting it out about this rudeness, thoughtlessness, ignorance.

i couldn't agree more...but I'd like to add that he's a dangerous idiot. READ THIS:

By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the
expenditure of $20.3 million in migration assistance to the Palestinian
refugees and conflict victims in Gaza . The "presidential determination"
which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to
resettle in the United States was signed on January 27 and appeared in the
Federal Register on February 4.


A review of Barack Obama's most recent actions since he was
inaugurated:
His first call to any head of state as president was to Mahmoud
Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.
His first one-on-one interview with any news organization was
with Al Arabia television.
He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of
detainees halted.
He ordered all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS
Cole and 9/11.
Now we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of
Palestinian refuges to move to and live in the US at American taxpayer
expense.

Just heard that those DVD's that Pres. BO sent to PM Brown are in NTSC format, not PAL1….

In other words, when PM Brown sat down to watch one of the DVD's, it wouldn't play...wrong format for England.

Duh…

Maybe Pres BO should be working in a sheltered work environment instead of in the White House.

Maybe one of those PAC's that he supposed banned can supply him with a job coach...

...I'm just sayin'

I voted for him, and I am pretty upset by this. I think it was a bad idea for him to appear on Leno in the first place. Hopefully he makes a public apology because I am severely disappointed in our president.

As the mother of a disabled child, every moment of my day is spent in care of another. Barack Obama should be ASHAMED of himself. He doesn't have the brains God gave a goat. (No offense to goats...)

You mark my words. That is a man of LOW character. That he would stoop so low for a laugh.

While Rome burns, he's on the freaking Tonight Show....

and all the while Rome IS burning.

I think parents should stage a peaceful demonstration outside of his House, like those people harassing the AIG workers at home.

When I saw this, all I could do was yell. I was SO mad. I am tireless, defending my son. Then this man says something so awful and indefensible. I'd like to slap him but good. With a bat.

He's arrogant, full of himself, and we're are just starting to see his TRUE colors, that so many of us KNEW he had. How anyone could have ever voted for him is beyond me. Had this been Bush the media would have nailed him to the cross themselves. It's unacceptable and seriously his apology is not sincere, he was caught with his pants down and of course he was going to say he didn't mean it, blah-blah-blah. Lets not even talk about all the other junk he's doing to our country.

I'm completely and utterly DISGUSTED (more than normal) that this man is representing our country as our leader.

I'll admit to being raised in Northern Maine, where the 'r' word is thrown out just as freely as the word 'and', or the 'f' word pretty much anywhere else.

I'll also cop to being deeply ashamed when you called me on it a few years ago. [The item has since been un-posted.] Although I was raised with a great aunt that was severely limited (grunts and spastic hand gestures only), it never struck me that the 'r' word could be so cruel.

I haven't seen the video yet, and it seems that I may not want to. I really hope that the backlash will teach him to close his mouth and think before he speaks. In spite of 'everything else', I hope he gets a very public chance to change.

After all, you were the one that taught me to carefully consider my thoughts before pressing "post". I hope that he has someone like you to listen to now.

I couldn't agree with you more. This had me hot mad as a matter of fact. No class at all so unprofessional and outright crass!
