Obama's bowling comments
Danny McCaslin would like people such as President Obama to stop using the word "retarded" and other turns of phrase that compare poor performance to intellectual disability. Actually, Obama didn't say that his score was low as Special Olympics participants' scores are low, he was suggesting that his bowling was an embarassing performance. While I agree that everyone slips up and makes offensive comments from time to time and shouldn't be beat up over every little thing, I also think this type of comment can't be said by someone who isn't embarassed of the Special Olympics' participants. This important to keep in mind when considering some of Obama's policy positions.
