President Obama’s Slip of the Tongue

Without his crutch teleprompter, President Obama is forced to speak his own mind, giving us a rare peek into his thoughts and personal character. Probably not a good idea, as evidenced by his appearance on Jay Leno’s show last night:

Nice. I have a wonderful son with Down syndrome, so I’m more than willing to point out that President Obama has a deep character flaw, as does anyone who makes fun of the developmentally disabled.

Kind of reminds me of the time then-vice president Al Gore referred to his political enemies as “the extra-chromosome right wing.” (Down syndrome is characterized by an extra 21st chromosome.)

Ugh. How disappointing.

  1. Yes, I heard about this on the news. I’m sure he’ll issue an apology and sound very repentant. I’m sure it’ll all be hogwash.

  2. How very disgusting. Sadly, it’s the type of thing that I’ve come to expect from Obama. Sean Hannity and Glen Beck did make mention of it on their shows yesterday.

  3. Well put, Barbara! I just kept thinking if his “mess up” would have been about homosexuals, the nation would be in an uproar over it, and he’d REALLY be in trouble. Like you said, he showed us his real self. Sad.
