Governor Palin’s comments on barry’s “thoughtless joke” and “offhand remark”.
PALIN: I was shocked to learn of the comment made by President Obama about Special Olympics.
This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world.
These athletes overcome more challenges, discrimination and adversity than most of us ever will.
By the way, these athletes can outperform many of us and we should be proud of them.
I hope President Obama’s comments do not reflect how he truly feels about the special needs community.
