  • That he bowels like he was inthe special olympics because hi boweling is bad. As a mother of spec. needs kids and a mother of kids that participate in the special olympics, I am furious over this. He is doing what most of the Obama bashers do and that is generalizing. Most spec. needs people have great skills and can outdo any normal person. SO for him to sya that he bowels like he is in the special olympics because he is bad is an insult to all disabled people. I will not accept his apology, since I feel he only did it to save face.

  • he bowled a 129 and said it was awful, like the special olympics or something.

    It's HILARIOUS until someone close to you has a disability that you are struggling with. He did call and apologize to the guy that runs it though.

  • Can't you google to find that out or search one of the 4 other topics on this issue? I'm thinking you just want to start trouble.

  • He is human just like all of us. He can flub and make a mistake. Everyone always jumped on Bush b/c of his dumb remarks. But we ALL make mistakes, presidents and all.

    And I am republican!! LOL

    But if Palin runs for Pres, he just gave her some serious ammunition!

  • I did try google, and I think your answer was just to start trouble.

    Thanks for the answers. I heard a lot about it and wasn't sure what it was about. I didn't think it was a big deal with the first few replies and then I read ibelongtojesus's reply.

    JackalsWife, try to google manners please.
