Obama on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno



I hope they put the entire interview of President Barack Obama on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, because I saw it and the whole thing's worth watching. Obama has a good sense of humor. He and Jay talked everything from AIG to the new puppy.

I hope more that NBC puts up the clip from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He and The Roots did Jimmy Fallon Slow Jamz the News and covered AIG.

I did not get to see it. Too bad. What did he say about "the puppy"? We continue to hurrah for westies for the white house.

I saw it and thought it went fairly well. Except for the "special olympics" slip - he did good.

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. Watch: http://tinyurl.com/ccz6nj

Pro: Are you actually a real person who cares about people who participate in Special Olympics or are you just another conservative operative that drops by blogs, doesn't read them, and post what amounts to political spam?

I posted your comment, but you have zero credibility.
