Remember when retarded was funny?

Remember when Dear Leader thought it was haha! funny to compare his crappy bowling skills to handicapped children competing in the Special Olympics?  He was just so cool. We were all supposed to laugh at how the cool kid was poking fun at the seriously uncool kids because...well...because he was just so cool.

"It was like Special Olympics or something."

Yes, Mr. President. Or something."

Now, of course, he's got an election to win and so he's not above trotting out the specials needs individual to show how kind he is and how black-hearted and evil Republicans are.

In its latest effort to slap Mitt Romney's "47 percent" comment, the Obama campaign on Monday tapped a young woman with Down syndrome to pull at the heartstrings of undecided voters.
The Obama-Biden campaign's web page featured a "letter of the week" from a 25-year-old woman who wrote that "I am one of the 47% of Americans who fall under Mitt Romney's definition of 'entitled' and 'unable to take responsibility for my life.' I have Down syndrome."

So when you compare the two Obama's - the one who carelessly jokes about the efforts of challenged kids to experience the joy of competing and sportsmanship with the one who callously uses a Down Syndrome woman to show how much he now "cares" - which one is the REAL Obama? The guy who jokes with Leno, confident in his other-worldly coolness, or the guy desperately trying to win votes?

I'm pretty sure I know which one is the real one.

Yes, Mr. President. Your entire presidency has been like the Special Olympics...or something.


  1. Wait a minute, she says she's a registered Democrat. Isn't "unable to take responsibility for my life" a synonym for that?

    1. Yes, and it's all the qualification she needs to vote. She doesn't even need ID.

      We're doomed.
      Doomed, I tell you.

    2. Probably. You know, I really want to deny that but it gets harder all the time. Oh well, have to keep swinging regardless.

    3. Actually, RG, it's "unwilling to take responsibility for my life" is synonymous with "registered Democrat".

    4. Important distinction, Ogrrre. Unable we can all live with; unwilling needs to be taken out and shot. Okay, spanked soundly and stripped of their allowance.
