I don't think this was that big a deal. I thought Obama came across as pretty loose and affable overall. Poor choice of words, yes, but not disparaging as some of the media would like to make it out to be.

Another interesting, and humorous, take on it here:

Obama sucks when he's off of the teleprompter. Oh wait-- he confuses speeches there as well. Oh, well. He's only a great orator when he's running for office. Everyone give him a break. He's no longer running for office-- he won.

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:
