Emanuel Meets With Shriver After 'F-ing Retarded' Comment. The White House chief of staff issued the invitation last week after Shriver wrote him to protest the derogatory comment, reportedly made by Emanuel in reference to some liberal activists.
Also on hand for Wednesday’s mea culpa meeting were Andrew Imparato, president of the American Association of People with Disabilities; Ricardo Thornton, a Special Olympics athlete; and, Peter Berns of The Arc.
I think this is GREAT! Using that word the way he did was AWFUL and HE should know better! We SHOULD hold our elected officials to a higher standard. I am glad he is widening the circle of people is apologizing too but I still think this remark shows a great deal of this mans character. I am not screaming for his head, but I do think they might find a better choice when his time is up. You?

LOL. Of course, lets hold him to a higher degree of scrutiny, even though lots of mothers around here blurt out that word with no qualms about it. He's human, most of us are, unlike some of the holier than thou sancti-mommies around here.
