The MSM seems to be surprised today :
the great man has made a blunder !
But there is nothing new...
People seem to forget that Obama has accumulated a whole series of gaffes during the campaign. But nobody seemed to care...
Now that he is president, the press is realizing (a little too late) what sort of a man he is. And they pretend to be shocked.
How hypocritical !
Here is what happened last night during the "Tonight Show" :
President Barack Obama has apologized to the chairman of the Special Olympics for his late-night talk show quip equating his bowling skills to those of athletes with disabilities.
Appearing on "The Tonight Show" Thursday, the president told host Jay Leno he'd been practicing at the White House's bowling alley but wasn't happy with his score of 129. Then he remarked: "It was like the Special Olympics or something."
The audience laughed, but the White House quickly recognized the blunder. The Special Olympics, founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, is a global nonprofit organization serving 200 million individuals with intellectual disabilities.
On his way back to Washington on Air Force One, Obama called the chairman of the Special Olympics, Tim Shriver, to say he was sorry — even before the taped program aired late Thursday night.
"He expressed his disappointment and he apologized in a way that was very moving. He expressed that he did not intend to humiliate this population," Shriver said Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America." Obama, Shriver said, wants to have some Special Olympic athletes visit the White House to bowl or play basketball.
Personally, I am not surprised.
This is what is bound to happen when someone tries to be funny, but has no talent.
A president's role is to govern, not to entertain.
SO please, Mister O. hurry up : go back to Washington, and put yourself to work !
