Did Obama apologize for his Special Olympics comment on Jay Leno

I don't mean his apology to Tim Shriver. I mean did he apologize publicly. I thought I heard he did, but I can't find a link. My husband is saying that a public insult requires a public apology, and I'm trying to prove that Obama gave one. He's way to classy to have not apologized.

  • He said that he was a crappy bowler and then said it was like the Special Olympics, so basically he said that people with disabilities are crappy. Not exact words, but that was the gist of it.

  • He has only apologized to Shriver, and that apology has been published, but there is no "public apology" of the type you are looking for.
