    He has hurt many families in America. He needs to say he is sorry in the public, not to an organization.

    In addition, someone who claims to have experienced prejudice and stereotypes throughout life, and has written about them in great detail, should be more sensitive and refined from life’s lessons.

    Furthermore, Obama claimed he was going to have the world think ‘highly’ of America again. Will this joke help?

    For someone who spoke of equality as a creed. Does this joke match that philosophy?

    For someone that said he would stand for all people. Does this stand up for those that participate in the special Olympics?

    The fact is Obama claimed a higher standard. To much is given, much is required.

    Obama has just showed us that ‘yes we can’ destroy what a campaign stands for with a single joke.

    During the campaign for the White House in 2008, the media criticized Palin for being ‘common,’ ‘not-polished,’ ‘not-compassionate’ and ‘not presidential.’ However, compare Sarah Palins attitude in this video created three weeks ago for the Special Olympics in Boise, Idaho.

    You decide the more ‘presidential’ among them. Watch: http://tinyurl.com/ccz6nj

    As the brother of a mentally disabled sibling I wonder how Mr Obama would feel if someone had made a similar comment about one of his children if they were born into this world with this type of condition. Unlike most humans born these children are treasures and loving them is easier because they truly have a reason for some of their actions. What baffles me is how someone with an Ivy League education and such an enormous IQ could make such a statement. Soon to be seen will be Mr Obama on TV hosting some sort of Special Olympics to make up for his idiotic statement and all his supporters will have forgotten what he said or it will have never registered with them. In this day in age I wonder just how many people would have offered up my younger brother to stem cell research or abortion just because he wasn’t quite like them. I believe God has a reason for these children in our lives, one is to see how we respond to them, and the other is the blessings that they will bring to our lives if we get involved. One thing I remember about my brother Chris was that after I told him about Jesus, he never let go of Him. He prayed and actually talked about God quite a bit. God has taught me quite a lot through Chris and his IQ is one tenth that of Mr Obama’s. I can’t wait for the day my brother and I share heaven together !!!
