Get Over It- He is human

How many times are we going to see Obama on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He is not perfect. I vote that we don't have the "BORG" in the White House. Pretty soon the man isn't gonna want to even go outside the White House doors, and of course that would lead to other rumors .
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.

I think that a part of what makes the President so popular, is that he is accessible in spite of the fact that he is the most powerful person on the planet. I predicted early on that if a person of color would be elected that he/she would be overscrutinized.

Great minds think alike because early early early this morning I blogged on the same subject (I hope you check out what I had to say).

President Obama is an upstanding person and his comments were taken completely out of context. He is only human and he jokes like anyone else and folks have to understand that he's not always walking around with a speech team, so his candid comments are just that!

I agree, they are going to turn the man into a robot... if he let's them. That's the key.
