I the joke Obama made regarding the Special Olympics was not in good taste, bu get over it already
If the public picks at everything the President says or does we will be left with scripted speeches that are run through focus groups. I vote for minor gaffes now and again and a non-empty suit.
According to "Access Hollywood", on his way back to Washington on Air Force One, Obama called the chairman of the Special Olympics, Tim Shriver, to apologize before the program aired 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 morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” He added that Obama wants to invite Special Olympic athletes over to the White House to bowl or play basketball.
