Palin Hits Obama on 'Special Olympics' Comment

Palin Hits Obama on 'Special Olympics' Joke


Gov. Sarah Palin responded to remarks made last night by President Obama related to the Special Olympics on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno":

“I was shocked to learn of the comment made by President Obama about Special Olympics,” Governor Palin said. “This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world.
“These athletes overcome more challenges, discrimination and adversity than most of us ever will. By the way, these athletes can outperform many of us and we should be proud of them. I hope President Obama’s comments do not reflect how he truly feels about the special needs community.”

Well, after the way his allies went after her, he really couldn't count on a full-throated defense of a boneheaded comment. Obama used the whole "it's just a joke" excuse with his "lipstick on a pig" comment, too.

Wild Thing's comment........

She's exactly the person who needs to answer this. Let him have it, Sarah Barracuda! Nicely done, Sarah. God bless Sarah and her whole family.

After the Special Olympics "joke", and his comparison of AIG bankers to suicide bombers, he's fallen from Harvard grad to Jughead. This is a window into this fool's dank soul. The charm is bullshit, it's all poison. He can't stop shooting his mouth off, either. It could get interesting.

Well done Sarah, thank you Chrissie.

Linda has another example of Obama duplicity.

Hi WT,
I also did my post on my Palin2012 site, mostly as I she has a son with Down Syndrome. Feel free to post the photo. No bumpers in the gutter. And we don't know if B. Hussein bowled with bumpers to keep from getting gutter balls??
BTW he is also pretty good at making baskets with a basketball. He does have problems if he were to try dribbling to the hoop.

Hey-B. Houssein "X" is a brilliant man. Just ask him. When he presented British Prime Minister Brown with the tacky gift of 25 "classic movie" DVD's (available for $19.95 a Cheap Joe's internet closeout site) someone quipped that they were probably DVD's for region one (North America) and would not work in a DVD player in the U.K. ----WELLLLL, I just heard on Fox news (Greta) that in fact P.M. Brown DID try to play a DVD from the assortment in his machine and YEP!!!-His DVD player issued an "incompatable disc" message !!! Methinks Obama went to presidency school on the short bus!!! (sorry)

Since the players behind the Mandatory National Service Bill lean left, hard left, it's actually the old political commissar system. A commissar was basically a Communist party official. And, guess what the Democrats have in store for America. Political officers: commissars.

The title Commissar refers to either a People’s Commissar (government), or a Political Commissar (military). In the Soviet Union, the Institute of Political Commissars was established to control the military. The state security organizations, KGB, etc., and or the People’s Commissars controlled the Soviet Army, together with the entire Soviet State.

Compulsory Public Service is the future. Anti-Marxist sentiment will be smashed; all men shall be judged politically. But we first require a state organ, an apparatus with which to train the political functionaries who will hold coequal rank and authority. Ever notice how Bolsheviks tend to do their dirty work on Fridays? Welcome comrade to Hillary’s National Public Service Academy. Welcome friend proletariat to the commissar system; it’s here:

Oops! This guy doesn't function without a teleprompter.

Great graphic Wild Thing. There are a few unapologetic conservative stars I have hopes for in 2012. Sarah is obviously one.
